It sounds like you’re trying to say that trans women have “loud voices” because they’re really men. And trans men are really women. If that’s so, then you’re just pretending to support trans men and trans masculine people -- you saw an opportunity to be transphobic, and took it. Correct me if I’m wrong, but your… Read more
Thanks for posting this 6 times. It’s really important to repeat yourself to the point it seems like a programming error. It’s an effective technique for proving to people you’re a loon.
Please -- defy grand jury proceedings. The whole world will be better off with you unable to access the Internet.
Its a common misrepresentation among a certain activist set, as is this whole grand juries are all bad all the time narrative. Manning strikes me as some one who is easily lead, and she seems to be surrounded by people telling her that she’s important and people will follow her. As with the ill conceived congressional… Read more
Exactly. She’s either an idiot, or this is all purposeful misdirection.
Then she fundamentally misunderstands the grand jury process, and her constitutional rights. She has no constitutional right to refuse to testify to the grand jury.
Manning says she is resisting because she, like many other politically minded Americans, believes grand juries are an illegal instrument designed to aide prosecutors on fishing expeditions... Read more
There’s no violation of her constitutional rights. The right to remain silent is not absolute, it’s to preserve the 5th amendment right not to self-incriminate. Prosecutors took the possibility of self-incrimination off the table by granting full immunity. That moots the right to refuse testimony. Especially if, as… Read more
If you need to report a war criminal there is a procedure for doing that. It does not include just giving a bunch of documents to a hostile intelligence service. The US government (even under Trump) has shown plenty of willingness to prosecute soldiers who have committed crimes in combat.
They also prosecute people who… Read more
I don’t understand why it is so hard for some folks to understand why the US government works to protect secrets.
Making a thermonuclear weapon takes some secret elements that the government has gone to extreme lengths to protect. I think that’s for the best. The same classification rules that protect nuclear weapons… Read more
she’s already admitted to her guilt. The deranged attempt to make herself a human rights martyr is ridiculous. Give it up Manning.
I have a tried to explain this to a lot of people I know who defend her constantly and that she should have been pardoned by the Obama administration. She did not blow the whistle but gave them everything she could get her hands on instead of directly trying to uncover war crimes committed by the American military.… Read more
A whistle blower follows established protocols. That is not what Chelsea Manning did. She leaked classified material to a hostile intelligence service. When you leak material to a hostile intelligence service after swearing oaths not to do so you will be jailed.
Yes, because people are subject to the laws of the jurisdiction they reside in regardless of their personal feelings about them!
No, she violated classification rules she was well aware of. See when you make oaths to the government on penalty of law they mean it.
Refusing to testify is a form of obstruction of justice.
Her “protest” is to protect Assange, so, fuck her.
