Salon.com blogger, Not-a-Liberal-a-Libertarian, Glenn Greenwald on Twitter yesterday, told prominent Obama supporter, @AngryBlackLady [Imani Gandy], that she and other Obama supporters (or “Obots” or “cultists” as he likes to call us) would support anything President Obama did, including assassination and rape.
Dr. Dawg: “ @AngryBlackLady @g_p_g @ggreenwald @emptywheel ABL, Obama could rape a nun live on NBC and you'd say we weren't seeing what we were seeing.”
Glenn Greenwald: “ @DrDawg @AngryBlackLady @g_p_g @emptywheel
No - she'd [AngryBlackLady] say it was justified and noble- that he only did it to teach us about the evils of rape. ”
When Twitter exploded with recriminations against Greenwald’s use of a rape metaphor to criticize Obama supporters, Greenwald doubled down with this tweet:
“ @jennpozner @JamilSmith It is NOT a "rape metaphor": it's a statement they they'd defend ANY evil: assassinations, child-killings: EVEN rape. ”
Got it? According to Salon.com head writer, Glenn Greenwald, if you are a supporter of President Obama, you are a defender of any and all evil in the world including rape, assassinations, and child killings.
Oh, and Happy New Year!!
