Progressive Glenn Greenwald is fed up with "Repulsive progressive hypocrisy"

is there even a single liberal pundit, blogger or commentator who would have defended George Bush and Dick Cheney
if they (rather than Obama) had been secretly targeting American citizens for execution without due process, or slaughtering children, rescuers and funeral attendees with drones, or continuing indefinite detention even a full decade after 9/11? Please. How any of these people can even look in the mirror, behold the oozing, limitless intellectual dishonesty, and not want to smash what they see is truly mystifying to me. -- - - Salon.com

Your Say

Glenn is a fool. He thinks the leftist B$ was something other than duckspeak meant to rally the troops. The inner party knows that the only thing that exists is the will to power, morality is prolefeed. The only task right now is to hang on to power. Critters like Glenn who cannot blackwhite are doubleplus ungood crimethink.

Just as at the time of the French Revolution, the left still sees themselves as something entirely different from what they really are. There is no experience which can alter that. As Lincoln observed, most men will respong well to adverity; if you really want to test a man, give him power.

All Bull$hit. The only method of beating this madness is destroying that diseased portion of America.

Don't like that, sign up for the Gulag!

What was your first clue?

"... people assume that if both political parties support a certain policy that it must be wise, and... are removed from the realm of mainstream challenge"

Congratulations - you came halfway toward the truth but stopped at the intellectual lightweight's position of both-sides-do-it.

Tell us, have you noticed that Republicans have not on the whole flipped to opposing Bush's policies because now a Democrat is executing them? Think on that, if you know how. And what the hell do you suppose constitutes "mainstream challenge", if not the lapdog media megaphone the Democrats bray through?

Close but no cigar - try again when your brain grows to full size.

Greenwald has NO room to talk. Even if he is right on this particular point.
