Disclosure: I am not a fan of Glenn Greenwald. In point of fact, I can’t stand the man. He and Jane Hamsher are on my all-time list of least favorite people.
But, I normally would not blog about either of them. They infuriate me, but they don’t hold any interest for me, and I tend to see them in the same light that I do the GOP. Maybe that’s because they are well known for collaborating with Grover Norquist.
Anyway, on to my point. Glenn Greenwald posted his asinine, nasty tweet yesterday, comparing a pro-Obama blogger to Hitler’s favorite Nazi cinematographer, Leni Riefenstahl. Blackwater Dog is the blog of former Kos diarist, BWD, who was hounded out of DailyKos. I don’t know the details, but I think it’s safe to presume that it was because she is pro-Obama, and Kos has become more and more Firebagger-like.
Nevertheless, Greenwald is utterly out of line, and deserves censure, that of course will not come from his seething anti-Obama groupies.
To them I say that Greenwald is the pied piper of Democratic ruin, leading the way only to failure and loss of any hope for a realization of progressive ideals in the next 20 years. Supporting Greenwald, et al, is working against your own best interests.
Alternatively, learn to filter. The truth is out there. But, you won’t find it on Glenn Greenwald’s site, nor on FireDogLake.They're much too busy pouting because they "lost their seat at the table" thanks to their vindictive ranting.
