Glenn "The Lyin Libertarian" Greenwald doesn't care about civil liberties, he cares about making money off of being able to bitch about them.
Glenn Greenwald's Anti-Obama Vendetta Continues
|by Anonymous||reply 41||03/16/2014|
From the link:
"There was a time when I really wished I could understand what drives Glenn Greenwald's hatred of President Obama. But then, I realized. I really don't care. I just wish his editors would be a little more discerning with his use of links and, um, "facts." I used to be able to count on the UK Guardian as an unwavering, very dependable news source, but it's becoming more difficult to do so, when they hire people like Greenwald to write for them.
First of all, they portray Greenwald as a progressive or liberal, and I don't see him that way at all. But that isn't what really bothers me about Greenwald. The most bothersome thing is the way he uses suppositions and facts interchangeably, as if they're equal.
Take his latest column, regarding Obama's nomination of James Comey as director of the FBI. Greenwald, as usual, uses the column as a vehicle for tooting his own horn, and to make an unsubstantiated attack against President Obama. First, he tries to establish himself as an expert on the covert activities of the Bush Administration, because he’s written about it many times. Now, I would never belittle that. I actually find much of the information on the NSA spying program to be very credible. Yet, he seems to have chosen to ignore his own notes in some spots, only to remember them later, when he's pretty sure readers have stopped reading. In this article, he makes statements about Comey that are simply not supported by available evidence, and then contradicts himself. In fact, after he starts like a house afire, and essentially blames Cowey for the downfall of civil rights, by the end of the article, he pretty much admits that Obama could have chosen much worse.
The question I keep asking myself is, where are his editors? He's not writing for his own personal blog; he's representing a truly good news organization. Why does he get to tell outright lies and then contradict himself later within the same column."

My main problem with Greenwald is he's so ineffective. The liberal opposition to Obama deserved a far better leader.

Is this the same guy that 'trusted' Bush on Iraq, defending him endlessly, and basically being his toady on any number of issues?

There is nothing 'liberal' about Glenn Greenwald. He's a fucking libertarian asshat.

Um, no....it's not.
Not sure who you're confusing him with? Andrew Sullivan, maybe?

Glenn Greenwald lies to suit his political agenda.
His rabid defense of wiki leaks led to a parade of slurs against Sweden and the criminal justice system, despite Sweden scoring higher than most nations on human rights and treatment of prisoners.
He's just a tinhat with a law degree.

So, pointing out that Obama has been more belligerent than Bush makes him "Anti-Obama"?
Obama is pushing us to WW3 over The Ukraine, just like Bush did over Iraq and Iran. They are both evil fuckwads.

Greenwald attacked Bush with as much vigor as he is attacking Obama.
He can see that both of them are just neocon puppets.

Glenn Greenwald is an emotionally stunted, borderline pederast who takes advantage of well-hung,impoverished, homeless and desperate teens and in exchange for sex and mid-life crisis management provides them with video games,cash and elevated social status within the hypocritical framework of a privileged and elitist lifestyle provided by the very U.S. system Greenwald rails against.

Glenn Greenwald is a craven,intellectually dishonest cultural relativist and violent jihad apologist who pretty much holds the U.S. responsible for EVERY political and social sandstorm occurring on the planet. He has a bratty,steamrolling style that has many admirers but to me makes him an insufferable cunt.
And although I agree with him on more than a few topics...including the destructive role U.S. foreign policy and corporate interests play in world events...the whole derisive tenor of his "blame America first and only" rhetoric and his staunch defense of and apology for brutal,Sharia law supremacists and terrorists has for me completely destroyed any credibility or moral authority he may have once have.
I love how sexy liberal atheist Sam Harris dismantles Greenwald's jejune,ad hominem attacks and passive aggressive intimations in this infamous interchange between the two.

In the country we have, like it or not, two political parties. One is weak, ineffective, and yet often stands for the right thing: helping the environment, supporting civil liberties, appointing good judges. The other is evil, dishonest, and is supported by the Koch brothers in an attempt to enrich the top .5 percent. Dems vs. Reps.
Greenwald attacks the Dems because he is motivated by his own need to drive his career. Attacking Reps does nothing to make him stand out. He's not interested in anything but his own career. Period. If he brings down all the Dems and puts Rick Perry in power, he'd be thrilled.
He is the very worst sort of journalist there is.

Glenn Greenwald attacks Obama worse than Bush? Sorry, that's just a lie, and one that you can easily disprove, since Salon has archives. Go read up and then let's talk like adults.
GG is consistent, which is why like Cornel West and unlike Bob Cesca and Al Sharpton and MSNBC talking heads he attacks Obama for doing the same things he attacked Bush for.
But character assassination is so much more fun! Oh yeah, and GG is so fugly.
Jesus, get a grip, Obamabots. Your guy fooled you. He's another neo-con on the take. Grow up.

Look, you Obama apologists are a bunch of evil morons. If you choose not to see, at this point, that Obama's a corporate shill, then you're deluded or a fool. Either way, you're a terrible person. Obama gloated over the farm bill, which took billions from the poorest people (in SNAP cuts) and gave it to wealthy farm owners. He seems hellbent on reviving the cold war. His administration's doing nothing about the end of net neutrality. He's got this evil trade deal going on that will make NAFTA look like a gift in comparison. It goes on and on. We can't afford your ignorance and blindness anymore. You're basically just a bunch of fucking Republicans pretending to be Democrats.
