Greenwald tries to attack Elizabeth Warren on twitter - Uses right wing source

by SpaceCityDemocrat

Libertarian Glenn Greenwald has a long history of attacking Democrats and Progressives.

Now that Elizabeth Warren is gaining support as a Democratic Candidate for 2016 he has decided to begin taking aim at her.

<...>

Shortly after her speech at Netroots Nation a man named Joe Schoffstall tried to catch the Senator in a "gotcha" moment by asking her about the Israel / Gaza issue while she walked to her next engagement.

Warren declined to answer. A perfectly acceptable decision considering the situation.

Being the opportunist that he is Greenwald attempted to exploit this interaction and take a swipe at Senator Warren.

This is a blatant hit piece by Stephen Gutowski of the Capitol City Project.A man who's bio brags about being cited by The Drudge Report, Fox News,The Blaze etc

So while you attempt to ridicule others who aren't even doing what you post about, there are plenty who have decided they must smear him and hate him simply because he said something they did not like.

80. I die a bit inside every time someone claiming to be a "liberal" or "progressive"

takes a page out of the climate deniers' book and arrives at the conclusion completely contrary to all the evidence, because it fits their political agenda.

Really, this "Greenwald is a libertarian" movement is maybe even a few steps below the denial movement because you don't even have to wade through scientific papers to know that is wrong.

176. At the beginning of this thread, Greenwald was called a "right libertarian" ...

and that's why there is so much "debate." Is he a Ron Paul-type Libertarian... or an ACLU-type civil libertarian? As you said, he is the latter, but it is more damning to call him a Paulite (or Paulbot) than to accuse him of being an ACLU-ite. Ron Paul and the ACLU share some common philosophical ground (similar to the common ground someone like Patrick Leahy and Rand Paul have found on sentencing reform), but that obviously doesn't make the ACLU a "right libertarian" organization. (And it doesn't make Leahy a Pauljunior-ite.)

Billionaire self-pity and the Koch brothers
The libertarian tycoons explain why they are the true victims of America's political culture
GLENN GREENWALD

<<…For billionaires to see themselves as the True Victims, to complain that the President and the Government are waging some sort of war against them in the name of radical egalitarianism, is so removed from reality — universes away — that’s it’s hard to put into words. And the fiscal recklessness that the Kochs and their comrades tirelessly point to was a direct by-product of the last decade’s rule by the Republican Party which they fund: from unfunded, endless wars to a never-ending expansion of the privatized National Security and Surveillance States to the financial crisis that exploded during the Bush presidency. But whatever else is true, there are many victims of fiscal policy in America: the wealthiest business interests and billionaires like the Koch Brothers are the few who are not among them. ..>

There are a lot of posts downthread that would fit right on an elementary school board.
He is a "right libertarian!!!! Do you know how ridiculous those posts are? Is that supposed to give me the vapors or something?

46. Certainly, *somebody* needs to get *something* new into their heads.

 

Many of us can agree on that, sir.

"Glenn Greenwald is not just the American Left's most fearless political commentator; his fearlessness is such that he has shifted the expectations for everyone else, too. His rock-ribbed principles and absolute disregard for partisan favor have made U.S. political discourse edgier, more confrontational, and much much better."
- Rachel Maddow

"The first thing I do when I turn on the computer in the morning is go to Glenn Greenwald's blog to see what he said. He is truly one of our greatest writers right now."
- Michael Moore

"The most important voice to have entered the political discourse in years."
- Bill Moyers

here? I assume HE knows his own political affiliations better than anyone else. He has responded to the 'he's a Libertarian' claim himself. Can I ask you something, during the Bush years, from 2005, Greenwald most certainly was considered 'one of us', whatever that means, did you suspect him then, or ever state it here on DU, that he was a 'Libertarian' and 'not one of us'?

(and these other DUers who I don't recall back then at all) had spoken out against him, warned us that he was a Libertarian, which he isn't just to be clear, and whatever else the claims are because I have no recollection of any antagonism towards him then, mostly he was viewed as a good blogger who 'told the truth about Bush'.

Too bad, if he's as bad as is being made out now, that no one WARNED us don't you think?

I do not make an issue out of everyone and everything I do not particularly like, there being limits to time and energy. There were a good many people who some hailed as 'telling the truth about Bush' I thought were useless and worse, people like Alex Jones ( once very popular here on the wilder left ), Justin Raimondo, with his 'anti-war.com' site, and a good many others I cannot be troubled to recollect this late at night.

Greenwald however was another matter. There has been a sea change by some regarding Greenwald, so much so it is remarkable, and raises many questions.

79. If the best these "trolls" have to go on in their quixotic quest...

to defend the NSA programs, is to (very contrary to evidence) claim that Greenwald is a "libertarian" (oh no wait, even more specific, a "right libertarian"!), that shows how pathetic their cause is.

Not only is the claim ludicrous, but Greenwald also had absolutely nothing to do with the operation of the NSA programs, something that these trolls also never seem to acknowledge.

A failure on so many different levels indeed.

PS: I heard Greenwald wears striped socks too.

So now, how 'bout that NSA?

83. I know, it's so transparant, not to mention we KNOW that a contract was out on

Greenwald to Security Contractors, to conduct a 'smear' campaign against him in order to 'discredit him'. So we know where it's all coming from. And of course it isn't working which must be extremely frustrating for them, especially if a lot of money has been spent on it.

NSA crimes are what they are trying to distract from, but the world is not interested in Greenwald's political affiliations, they are outraged, see Chile eg, now developing their own internet to protect themselves from the NSA, at the intrusion into their country's privacy.

Don't worry that you are getting brutally spied upon. I'm sure that if you knew that the man who revealed the NSA's intrusive programs is a right-libertarian, you would no longer worry about such tomfoolery.

102. Does it matter?

Greenwald had the courage to support Snowden in letting the American public know how the NSA is violating our privacy.

Who cares what he thinks about other issues.

Each of us is entitled to and should make up his/her own mind about each separate issue.

I fully support Greenwald with regard to his statements and writings about the NSA.

I am not authoritarian enough in my personality to insist that he or anyone else agree with me on every issue.

I like Obama. I don't like his NSA policy. I don't like many of his appointments. But I still support him. I don't like everything Greenwald thinks, says or does, but I still support him.

That's what makes me a liberal, a progressive. I think for myself and care about liberty and my fellow human beings.

I have been reading Greenwald's book No Place to Hide. It is great. I strongly recommend it. In fact, I don't think anyone on DU should comment on Greenwald without first reading that book.

The book is not about Greenwald. It is about Greenwald's meeting Snowden, about the NSA's programs and activities, about why the NSA's programs and activities are objectionable and dangerous and how the American media repeats propaganda and is rewarded for doing so.

It's worth reading.

179. Sir, do you think the right libertarians are pro-Palestinian?

Here's Greenwald on the current conflict:

NBC News Pulls Veteran Reporter from Gaza After Witnessing Israeli Attack on Children

Mohyeldin recounted how, moments before their death, he was kicking a soccer ball with the four boys, who were between the ages of 9 and 11 and all from the same family. He posted numerous chilling details on his Twitter and Instagram accounts, including the victims’ names and ages, photographs he took of their anguished parents, and video of one of their mothers as she learned about the death of her young son. He interviewed one of the wounded boys at the hospital shortly before being operated on. He then appeared on MSNBC’s All In with Chris Hayes, where he dramatically recounted what he saw.
...
Over the last two weeks, Mohyeldin’s reporting has been far more balanced and even-handed than the standard pro-Israel coverage that dominates establishment American press coverage; his reports have provided context to the conflict that is missing from most American reports and he avoids adopting Israeli government talking points as truth. As a result, neocon and “pro-Israel” websites have repeatedly attacked him as a “Hamas spokesman” and spouting “pro-Hamas rants.”

Last week, as he passed over the border from Israel, he said while reporting that “you can understand why some human rights organizations call Gaza ‘the world’s largest outdoor prison,’”; he added: “One of the major complaints and frustrations among many people is that this is a form of collective punishment. You have 1.7 million people in this territory, now being bombarded, with really no way out.”

Gazans may have no way out of Gaza, but at this point, Mohyeldin seems to have no way back in. After several requests, NBC executives have not yet provided any on-the-record statements; they will be added if provided.

https://firstlook.org/theintercept/2014/07/17/nbc-removes-ayman-mohyeldin-gaza-coverage-witnesses-israeli-beach-killing-four-boys/

I ask you to consider what is currently in your head, and to consider a fresh look at what Greenwald actually says. I think you've chosen a side without enough evidence.

183. Greenwald is a fan of Warren, when it comes to financial regulation

GLENN GREENWALD: Well, there’s this—one of the best parts about the financial regulation bill, maybe the only truly meaningful part, is the creation of this agency, which is the idea of Professor Elizabeth Warren at Harvard to essentially police the ability of Wall Street to put fine print into mortgage and credit applications that lure the consumer into extremely one-sided and imbalanced transactions that they don’t know about, because they lack the sophistication, they don’t have lawyers to do it. And the idea of the progressive base was that she is the person who ought to be heading this agency, because she is genuinely committed to the idea of limiting Wall Street abuses. She’s a crusader for economic justice and for protection of consumers, exactly the kind of person that this administration needs but doesn’t have in important financial positions.

And the problem was, progressives were demanding it, but their real constituency, which is Wall Street and business, are horrified by the idea of Elizabeth Warren, and they needed to find some solution, because if they didn’t nominate her, progressives would be in revolt before the election. And so, what they did was they created this hybrid solution, where they pretended that they were going to appoint her, even though she has no real authority—she’s just an adviser to the President—to set up the agency, but not to run it, and meanwhile they’re telling Wall Street, "Oh, don’t worry, she’s not really going to have any authority. She’s not going to be the person who’s running it." And it’s these kind of symbolic gestures in the last several weeks that I think are almost more offensive, as they try and pretend that they are something that for the last two years they haven’t been.

http://mwcnews.net/focus/analysis/5370-glenn-greenwald-on-iran.html

Meanwhile, new laws to legalize both same-sex marriage and marijuana use were enacted in multiple states with little controversy, an unthinkable result even a few years ago, while Obama's late-term embrace of same-sex marriage seems to have resulted only in political benefit with no political harm. Democrats were sent to the Senate by deeply red states such as Indiana, Missouri and North Dakota, along with genuinely progressive candidates on domestic issues, including Elizabeth Warren in Massachusetts and Tammy Baldwin in Wisconsin, who became the first openly gay person elected to the Senate. As a cherry on the liberal cake, two of the most loathed right-wing House members – Rep Joe Walsh of Illinois and Allen West of Florida – were removed from office.

He is not a right libertarian.

That OP, like this one, is an attempt to attack Greenwald by saying "look, he doesn't agree with DU darling Elizabeth Warren". What the OPs hope people won't notice that in both cases, Greenwald's position is on the left, and Warren is either being hawkish or just avoiding giving an opinion. Whether the Kossack who wrote it is an Obama-can-do-no-wrong-so-Greenwald-Delendum-Est die-hard who realises this, someone not intelligent enough to realise it, or even an NSA plant (yes, we should accept that the NSA, like GCHQ, will try to infiltrate online forums to alter opinion), I don't know. But I didn't think you would fall into any of those categories.

184. So He Tries To Undercut Her Somewhere Else, Sir

Neither support for legalization of marijuana or for gay marriage indicates a reliable left orientation. Any number of younger libertarians support both things. Whatever his actual views on corporate regulation, he still concentrates fire away from the chief opponents of proper regulation. He presses all fights currently as if the real problem were Democrats and President Obama. That is a false analysis, and people who press it are not friends of anything but Republican reactionaries. He is part of the problem, not part of the left.

185. Greenwald on single payer and the public option:

The public option, of course, all along was already a compromise from what most progressives wanted, who wanted single payer and were told by most Democratic politicians for a long time that single payer was the optimal course. The public option was already a means of doing nothing other than at least providing some competition to the private health insurance industry. And all year long, Democratic senators and the White House pretended that they were in favor of the public option. They kept insisting, “We’re behind the public option. We want the public option,” even though there was all sorts of evidence that the White House was secretly negotiating with the health insurance industry to make sure that it would be excluded from the final bill.
...
Well, now you have a situation where everybody is talking about doing healthcare reform through reconciliation, where only fifty votes, not sixty votes, are required. And what does the President do? He immediately, when he finally unveils his first bill, excludes the public option from the bill, even as he says we’re going to use a process that will only require fifty votes. And you even saw Senator Jay Rockefeller, who spent the year pretending to be so devoted to the public option that he said he will not relent in ensuring that it gets passed, that there is no healthcare reform without a public option, now that it can actually pass and become a reality, he turns around and says, “I’m not inclined to vote for it in reconciliation.”
...
Well, first of all, one of the things that’s most amazing is that single payer and the public option both poll infinitely better than the healthcare bill itself, than the Senate healthcare bill that the President is advocating. And despite that, what you see all the time when they talk about bipartisanship is shifting the terms of the debate onto, essentially, the right-wing playing field to accommodate Republican views, which basically means there should be no healthcare reform, and excluding views that are to the left of anything that is essentially a conservative idea.

And so, Anthony Weiner and Dennis Kucinich have both been the leading — two of the leading participants in the healthcare debate from the very start, but because they want to move the healthcare debate into the area that’s actually popular, which is providing either single payer or at least a robust public option, they’re excluded from the start. And this is the Democratic White House excluding anything to the left of conservative ideas in defining what the scope of the debate is. And, of course, that’s something that happens in issue after issue.

http://www.democracynow.org/2010/2/25/glenn_greenwald_dems_hiding_behind_filibuster

Yet again, Sir, he is not a right libertarian.

"he still concentrates fire away from the chief opponents of proper regulation"

Where? Don't just assert stuff, Sir. It's beneath you. He supports regulation, and you're reduced to pretending he doesn't. This won't do.

Because he used Edward Snowden for his own ends in order to report a story you feel is important, Glenn cannot be questioned or pushed back on ever again for the rest of his life? That you think someone cannot, at the same time, think the NSA is a completely out of control agency and is getting the attention it deserves and also think Glenn is a complete asshole is really nobody else's problem but yours. He's gotten especially pissy since the Obama administration ignored his press tour here rather than harassing and arresting him like he was hoping. I'm glad the Pres didn't make him a freeking martyr.

If she decides to run for Prez, then she can not run away from any question about I/P. Until the, she does not have to answer it.

30. questions you guys can bat around

First I didn't know Greenwald was a,libertarian> Now I understand why the Guardian chose to ignore the uK marches.. I am going to leave some questions I have been pondering.NOT asserting at all I am right..but you guys have been so welcoming , open minded and kind..that I feel comfortable asking these questions here..

1. why didn't Snowden come out during an earlier time? What was the exact timing of his leaks and what was going on at the time.I ask this because what I have noticed..
is this.. the ptbs like to create a distraction and or a new wrinkle when something they do create too much public backlash

2. Why did the Guardian go after our President but does not say a word about Cameron killing thousands of their own people. They stand for his rights but not anyone else? something is fishy here


remember the media..all of it is owned by six rich men

One thing I've learned about the news.. is to ask "why this story and why now.. what is underneath that rug..they stand on and what was swept under it? What and who can and news story benefit? is also a good question to ask

42. yep

it's still happening They are doing BENEFITS reform in such a way as to eliminate all disabled, poor elderly, etc.I've been for three years very involved with the activists there.I suppose I shall have to go there and dig out the article ..cause I know you will want links..BUT yes.. more than 100,000 is the estimate.Cameron took down the death stats two years ago when it reached 10,000. The Tories are like the REPUBLICANS on steroids. I have lost so many friends.. Many folks who are terminally ill have been removed from benefits. The methods are right out of Hitlers playbook.DEmonization of the disabled in the press as "scroungers" have seen hate crime raise 75 percent. It's not unlike our welfare reform that created so many working poor but far worse. There is even a new censorship law.I had myself a post criticizing Cameron off an AMERICAN companies social network.I'll be starting a thread and you will get tired of all the links believe me. I have never in my life seen anything like it.. I am in such fear for my friends..

Bear with me on the links.. I will get them here
they also figure 26,000 old folks died last year cause of no heat.I suppose in America we are so used to allow the poor to die we take it for granted..BUT this is a privatization of NHS meant to make the UK system like ours and thin the herd at the same time.. The lovely men of ALEC (GINGRICH) Tauight the Tories when they lost the election.. determined to have their way I suppose

By the same token, Warren may not have formed an opinion that she is comfortable with, so how is not answering a problem?

How are either positions a big deal?

Greenwald with his Libertarian proclivities and how he attacks Democrats who are leading on issues like the unfairness in banking and on Wall Street, and how the middle class cannot get a break.

Perhaps you missed the lead-off post to this thread?

It's a tough subject....understandable that some might want to avoid it or try to change the subject.

148. Excellent response!

I was told many years ago that the Libertarian party didn't differ very much from the Republican, except for the fact that they are the whacko wing of the GOP for their undying love of guns, and that they want to smoke pot.

If Greenwald ever had any credibility, he lost it just as soon as he teamed up with that gal from FireDogLake, who was rabidly against the ACA in 2010, and she was interviewed many times just railing against the passage of the ACA bill that President Obama wound up signing in to law.

However, now Greenwald has tied his wagon to Snowden, and he thinks that will make him a star.

It's sort of funny in a way, ever since Snowden moved to Russia, and recently applied for citizenship after his 1st year visa was about to expire, and then Greenwald decides he should go after someone like Senator Warren to begin with.

One thing that I noticed quite a while ago is that Greenwald hardly ever criticizes the loony tune GOP Senators in the Senate, like Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, or John Cornyn.

128. all i see is a video of warren not answering the question

is that what u are calling an attack?

///////////////////////////

Tye is but the latest surveillance whistleblower, though he took pains to distinguish himself from Snowden and his approach to dissent. "Before I left the State Department, I filed a complaint with the department’s inspector general, arguing that the current system of collection and storage of communications by U.S. persons under Executive Order 12333 violates the Fourth Amendment, which prohibits unreasonable searches and seizures," Tye explained. "I have also brought my complaint to the House and Senate intelligence committees and to the inspector general of the NSA."

These steps—which many say Snowden should've taken—produced no changes to the objectionable NSA spying and wouldn't be garnering attention at all if not for Snowden's leaks. It is nevertheless telling that another civil servant with deep establishment loyalties and every incentive to keep quiet felt compelled to speak out.

A link to a video is not an 'attack'. That happened. Unless it's your contention that he did it with editing and special effects.

It seems like you consider simple acknowledgement of any facts that reflect poorly on your perceived allies as an "attack". Isn't that what we used to mock neocons and Bushbots for?

Asking a sitting US Senator about a political situation, and a big one?

"It isn't her area of expertise" is silly bullshit, she doesn't have to test out on expertise before she votes on matters. She is not the Secretary of Treasury or even a Governor who by definition is mostly tasked domestically but rather a Senator she doesn't get to dodge to "specialty" she has none other than the affairs of the US Government both foreign and domestic.

There can be no "gotcha" The woman is like 65, highly educated, and a Senator by definition she has a position. Now was the venue the best or even reasonable? Perhaps not, it wasn't some debacle not to answer either but the question and calling on not responding is fair game.

These attacks of Greenwald are silly and getting more so by the day, flogging lies and dubious strains of logic.

I have a lot of respect for Warren, and would have expected her to lead in this sensitive subject, rather than fleeing.
