LGF Newsflash: Glenn Greenwald SNOT a Leftist

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.

Glenn Greenwald Lefty 0

NJDhockyfan stepped on an invisible LGF eggshell. Let the Downdingbat-N-Bait Fest begin.

Glenn Greenwald Lefty 2

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‘,[16] an example of  ‘liberals [who] wonder when Obama’s team will reflect them’,[17] and a ‘liberal commentator’;[18] polls have ranked him as a top liberal (Forbes[19]) and progressive (New Statesman[20]) commentator.”

Only in the fertile imagination of Charles Johnson does
Greenwald = Obama critic = Racist = Right Wing.

But wait! There’s more!

Honorary BRC Engineer No. garycooper suited up and cannon-balled Gus-first into The Swamp to find this little gem from just five years ago:
Glenn Greenwald Lefty 1

What Charles posted in 2008 links to this story from 2006:

The Glenn Greenwald Sock Puppet Story

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.

    Greenwald is not a lefty and Charles and Lidane are not hefty

  2. Doppel penis penis penis LOL says:

    Charles has taken the honor of being the Left’s most dishonest blogger

  3. I saw this yesterday on Twitter, commented, then thought better of it; deleted it so as not to get caught up in the excrement there. One poster, a marvel of douche-baggery named Tom Wellborn provides the grist for the mill that convinces sane readers that Liberalism™ is, indeed, a mental disorder.

  4. rightymouse says:

    Greenwald is a member of the ‘Freedom of the Press Foundation’. That’s likely why he’s unhappy with Obama. That said, he’s clearly not right-wing.

    I am deeply humbled (read “proud as a peacock”) to be named an honorary BRC engineer. I’d like to thank all the little people. Yes, the midgets. Midgets got me where I am today.

    Glenn Greenwald is not only a lefty, he’s a cranky lefty, who calls out those icons of his political persuasion who don’t toe the line. He’s fanatically opposed to the dolt Thomas Friedman, darling of the self-identified Liberal MSM and frequent cut-and-paste involuntary contributor to LGF, as illustrated in this piece which also links the unabashed commie, Alexander Cockburn, and the silly hippie Matt Taibbi: http://www.salon.com/2012/07/25/the_value_of_tom_friedman/

    He’s been calling Obama “worse than Bush” for some time, citing his DOJ’s treatment of James Rosen. He really doesn’t like Obama. Racist Jew!!

      it flies in the face of reality that one can’t be a liberal/progressive if they disagree with Obama.

      only his followers are dumb enough to believe him, but I don’t think any of them believe his lies and bullshit.

    Wow. LGF was the first blog I read back in 2002. Hadn’t stopped by there in years until a couple of days ago and, well, wow… Never thought Johnson was conservative back then, but never pegged him for a stark raving psychotic imbecile. I realize I’m very late to all of this, but, crikey, what a cultish, deranged cesspool LGF has turned into.

    Very entertaining blog, btw. Yours, not his.

  11. Voltaire's Crack says:

    There are rumblings that Obama has already decided that Lerner must be axed, allowing his most faithful cheerleaders to call the IRS scandal offically closed.

    What position will CJ take while folks are calling for her head but she’s not actually been canned?

    What position will CJ take after she is canned, presuming this has already been decided, but is just awaiting roll-out?

    He’s had a nervous breakdown.

    • garycooper says:

      There are competing theories, and we all have our favorites. I’m partial to the unrequited-love freakout, which traces the beginnings of his mental breakdown to his romantic rejection by Pam Geller. Others have suggested such causes as drug addiction, a closed-head injury from falling off his bike, a sellout to the Soros Cabal, fear of Islamic retribution for his years of tireless news-stringing in the War Against Islamofascism, and a misguided attempt to capitalize on the nation’s swing to the Left as the Unicorn Messiah hove into view. It could be one, some, all or none of these things, imho.

        I’m going with the “chronic overindulgence in Cheetos” hypothesis.

        Cheetos coupled with the onset of dementia is a volatile mixture.

        Just look at his tweets.

        He repeats himself over and over ad nauseam like an old man in the throes of Alzheimer’s.

        It would be sad and I’d feel sorry for him if he weren’t such an annoying POS.

      • rightymouse says:

        I’ve always thought that his swing to the left was suspiciously coinkidink with Obama’s election in 2008 even though he said he voted for McCain/Palin. Shortly after the election he did his ‘Jack Cuse’ and I bet hf figured he’d make a small fortune riding the Obamania and become as wealthy as Huffpo. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

    So you can’t be liberal/leftist if you criticize Obama? Ted Rall has been criticizing Obama for years, and he’s an admitted leftist. I don’t agree with Ted about much of anything, but I have given him credit for being honest. He was an Obama supporter who got off the bus back in ’09 when he found out that (GASP!) Obama was not really going to close Git-Mo, or do some of the other things he told people he was going to do. Ted has had buyer’s remorse ever since, but at least he admits it, and you certainly can’t call him a rightie. I’m not personally familiar with Greenwald, but an authentic progressive should be able to see right through Obama and understand what a phony he is. People who are Obama supporters are not truly left-of-center/progressive in their worldview. If they call themselves such they are either idiots or frauds themselves (probably a bit of both).

  20. But, hey, at least the Jews aren’t the problem, right? I mean, there’s really nothing to see here.

      re: #211 Whynothonesty?

      Yes, I get that. But this is not the thread we were discussing.

      You’re not understanding my point, then. It’s not about this ‘thread’, it’s about the subject in general.

      Sorry that you don’t like my anecdote, but it’s true and factual. Clearly, you seem to assume many things, like my political philosophy. I want answers and I want people who are in charge to be held accountable. I think we’re on the same page when it comes to that.

      Please don’t assume anything, you’ve shown a remarkable inability to actually engage with what I’m saying, and very little in comprehending what I”m saying.

      Reassuring me that your anecdote is true is, again, worthless, because I don’t know you or have any reason to trust you. You are someone. That’s all. Repeatedly saying “But I’m telling the truth” doesn’t change that I have no reason to believe you.

      Even if I did believe your anecdote, it would remain an anecdote, and useless for an examination of the larger subject.

      I want answers and I want people who are in charge to be held accountable.

      Held accountable for what? And who do you mean by the people in charge?

      re: #213 Obdicut
      The thread started with Lerner invoking her 5th amendment rights. In other words, to dodge the questions. Maybe she has no answers, if this is so then sit there and take the heat. I see where you’re going with this. Your comment about uninspired CEO’s has more to do with your political philosophy then whether they are capable of leading people and creating something. Your clearly one of these folks who sits around all day bemoaning the fact that life isn’t fair and people need to be taken care of. Well, I don’t know you either and to engage you in this circular argument is nonsense. You sound like a pretentious asshole. Go make a difference in the world, dream your dreams, but please don’t ascend to any role of importance- you don’t need to, you’re already way important in your own mind. Which is obvious.

      “You sound like a pretentious asshole.” That’s because Obdicut IS a pretentious asshole.

    I love when he doubles down. See Rosen deserved it because he wanted to shape policy. I mean thats not what DOJ got the warrants for but so be it. Faux News, Derp and all that. Of course I need to wonder if mediaite will also be tapped as they have a leaker leaking to them.

    So did Ellsberg with the Pentagon Papers re: Vietnam.

    • rightymouse says:

      Ellsberg was a hero to the left at the time.

    • So do all the lefty media when they cover up what the Palestinians do to the Israelis on a regular basis.
      Chuck, you are really, really DUMB.

    • LGFisputrid says:

      Nice catch. I thought this opinion quoted in Wikipedia re the pentagon papers would be of value for fuck face to review.

      Only a free and unrestrained press can effectively expose deception in government. And paramount among the responsibilities of a free press is the duty to prevent any part of the government from deceiving the people and sending them off to distant lands to die of foreign fevers and foreign shot and shell.

  23. And CJ’s point is what?

    • Pakimon says:

      CJ doesn’t have a point. (except on the top of his head)

      He just cut n’ pastes whatever idiocy he finds at MediaMatters and TalkingPointsMemo and hopes it sticks so he can take credit.

      It never does and in desperation, he’ll keep tweeting it with the ICYMI tag. 🙄

  24. Really? As if some newly revealed DOJ doc that schites all over Rosen is the be-all-end-all of the scandal? For phuque sake, who/what journalist doesn’t want to “impact” policy. Is this guy for real?

  25. Pakimon says:

    Chunky is peeved that he wasn’t invited to the “sooper not-so-sekret” meeting of left-wing pundits at The White House to “coordinate strategy”.

    He wouldn’t have been happy even if he was invited.

    Michelle made sure that Cheetos and Mountain Dew weren’t included in the hors d’oeuvres menu.
