Everybody Meet Chelsea Manning

One day after being sentenced to 35 years in prison for the largest leak of classified documents in U.S. history, the Army private the world knows as Bradley Manning issued a statement about who she really is. "As I transition into this next phase of my life, I want everyone to know the real me. I am Chelsea Manning. I am a female"

Difficult to believe....

I find this very difficult to believe. His attorney is a military man himself, which begs the question: Who does the attorney really work for in this case? I feel like this story was put out to make Bradley Manning lose his Tea Party supporters. Without even considering the moral issues some might have with his supposed gender identity disorder, Tea Party members are not going to support government funding nonessential healthcare for anyone. TBTB know this. So what type of supporters will Manning gain? The growing, loud and proud, LGBT community. His legacy will be changed from a patriot whistle-blower, to a champion for the transgenders. I don't buy it for one second.

Fuuck this whole story.

If it was real it wouldn't be this bizarre. The goal is to manipulate us at one level or another.

What if they're just setting him up for bad things to happen?

My wife just brought up a good point: What if Bradley Manning isn't actually responsible for this statement at all? If someone is heading to prison, does it seem like a good time to make this announcement? Does it seem like something someone who wanted to see him suffer a bit might do just to be vindictive? And how is riding in a car taking cell phone pictures and wearing a wig the day after sentencing? Most people are in a cage somewhere the day after getting sentenced to 35 years in prison.

Now manning is just a

jail bird, whistle-blowing moocher.

Looking Good!

does it change anything?

GOVERNMENT LIES!

That's all this crap is----story originated from a Hollywood reporter.

End of story.

If you can't change the focus on Manning, then change the story. Make him irrelevant. Don't believe his fed-appointed attorney for a nano-second.

I'm thankful for what Manning did, but he is still a pervert

according to the Word of God and laws of nature. God loves him and wants to save him from himself. I hope he will seek and find Truth in prison.

If your personal habits were publicized

I'm sure I could pick at you too. And I could be a self-righteous prick about it by calling you names and saying you need Jesus in your life - but I'm not an asshole.

See, if you really cared for Manning's eternal soul, I'd expect you to pray for him or maybe attempt to privately contact him in some way to express the way you feel about his behavior, however you're doing nothing but being nasty by writing a message that everyone can see except him.

truth is treasonous in an empire of lies.

Lol

You're going to use that Ron Paul quote for this argument? How dramatic. It's not even applicable to my post. You're more than welcome to your own opinion; my complaint was not regarding whether there was any truth to your opinion, but the fact that it didn't contribute anything to this discussion or "save" Manning.

Jesus had a name for people like you and it was "pharisee." - You're hindering your own religion. You'd rather point out people's flaws and yell, "Sinner!!" than bring people into the Christian umbrella.

Smear campaign

Ron Paul again. It's that damned neocon Malkin the war hawk.

The strangest and most disturbing thing about this for me is

she looks exactly like my online stalker. I think I finally rid her for good this weekend. I want to put her pic up to compare, but it may just open up a big hornet's nest again. And this is the for real truth!

I used to have a stalker

but now i am old and ugly and nobody stalks me.

South is the new way up! Major trend for 2014: Latin America. Start checking out South American investment, it's part of our future now.

Those housewives crave that Native blood, Smudge :)

Like the Mandingo fantasy...they have that Tonto fantasy.
I have to block ladies all the time in those facebook groups. I even put this up for my profile picture for a while and they STILL kept coming. Those cougars can track a Native down fast, Smudge.

LOL

It's not funny.. but how you posted it..

No way you have to apologize for anything. Not to me, anyway.

Wow, okay.

Cyril, I don't always agree with you, but you're a really smart guy and speak English more proficiently than most native English-speakers. Those posts are a prime example of mad23's lack of rational thought.

Seems like he only criticized your English once he found out you were a native frenchman. That's ignorant, plain and simple. English isn't "the language of the Gods" after all...

Well, of course you don't.

Well, of course you don't. That's called individuality. Plus, I'm also wrong regularly anyway.

But thanks for being able to recognize without any doubts the same moron OP as I do.

So why is everybody voting

So why is everybody voting this down? Is DP.com a homosexual bastion? Do DPers have trouble facing reality? You do realize this isn't a joke right? This is a real news article, no words have been added. Deal with it.

Rofl

Maybe they're voting it down because you're attempting to discredit the evidence Manning provided using his sexuality as a bargaining chip.

A detail that, neither I, nor many other DPers obviously care about considering the fact that you're trying to say a danger to our liberties (the documents he released) is less important than discussing this guy's personal habits.

What exactly is your agenda?

I don't think they are down-voting "Chelsea"

I think they are downvoting the troll who posted, aka YOU. You are not simply posting this OP just to post information. In my opinion you posted this to say, "Everybody meet Chelsea! THIS is who you all look up to!?" I believe there is malice in your intentions, and THAT is why you got -1 from me.

Bradley aka Chelsea can be anybody he wants to be. If he wants to be Bradley, fine. If he wants to be Chelsea, power to him... her, whatever. WHO Manning is, is irrelevant. WHAT Manning DID is what matters.

"Chelsea" is O.K.

...but "Brandy Manning" sounds better to me. Oh well.

I'm not sure how pointing out

I'm not sure how pointing out the truth is a form of malice? To say that "WHO Manning is, is irrelevant" is pretty dumb. Granted this in of itself doesn't change what he did, but it certainly lends to his state of mind, whether it's sound or not. If Ron Paul where to chop of his wee-wee and change his name of Rhonda how do you think that might effect your little movement? I think it goes without saying what the consequences of that would be...

As previously stated, Manning is a mentally deranged person. He engaged in a reckless and destructive criminal act. Not having the mental maturity to see him and his actions for what they are calls into question any other political position you take.

"Your little movement." Seriously??

Troll confirmed!!

What was Ron Paul's % of the

What was Ron Paul's % of the votes in 2012 GOP nomination? Wasn't it like 3%? Sure seems "little" to me. So little and so fringe Rand Paul doesn't want anything to do with you guys anymore. He dumped Jack Hunter over his associations.
