LGF Newsflash: Glenn Greenwald SNOT a LeftistPosted: May 22, 2013
Our best guess:
Charles was so disturbed by the ethereal appearance of Comment No.10M (and the subsequent feverish hunt through his collection of IP addresses to identify the wag who posted it) that his entire world view flipped 180 degrees:
The Left is now Right, and The Right is even further Right.
Fact: It’s been discovered that the Obama Administration deliberately attempted to squelch the free press. Long-time Lizard NJDhockyfan observed that even Glenn Greenwald, a well-known leftist and political pundit, is not happy about it.
NJDhockyfan stepped on an invisible LGF eggshell. Let the Downdingbat-N-Bait Fest begin.
So there you go. Greenwald is not a “lefty” because he and many others know that Obama and his Administration are attempting to squelch criticism in direct violation of The First Amendment, and even a leftist like Greenwald (who occasionally supports the Constitution) doesn’t like it. From the respected conservative website Wikipedia:
“Articles in The New York Times and The Nation have referred to Greenwald as ‘liberal‘, an example of ‘liberals [who] wonder when Obama’s team will reflect them’, and a ‘liberal commentator’; polls have ranked him as a top liberal (Forbes) and progressive (New Statesman) commentator.”
Only in the fertile imagination of Charles Johnson does
Greenwald = Obama critic = Racist = Right Wing.
But wait! There’s more!

What Charles posted in 2008 links to this story from 2006:
It’s another mental WTF. The left’s most dishonest blogger is described by the left’s most dishonest blogger as “The left’s most dishonest blogger.” In other words, it’s the plop calling the cattle bleaugh. What a #Rumpswab.
