Glenn Greenwald is GAY

And he has delivered more "Straight Talk" than any reality TV "quack" could ever utter out of his ratings driven Bill.

I think it's important we focus more on the persons character and grow up rather than fixate ourself on their sexual orientation which has nothing to do with anything of substance here.

Exactly

We found out about it from HIM when his partner was detained and his civil rights were threatened. He doesn't flaunt it and he doesn't resort to predatory tactics to promote it. He just lives his life.

My take on this, from a purely utilitarian viewpoint.

Glenn Greenwald does some great work, but there is a flaw that goes with his lifestyle that nobody wants to talk about. Eventually, whether by a timely or untimely turn of events, Greenwald is going to leave this world. Childless revolutionaries tend to have a limited impact in the long-term, as children tend to follow the footsteps of their parents. I know there is less of this as American society has grown more depraved and parents have been raised by a corrupt school system to hate their parents and love their tyrannical rulers.

I don't harbor any animus towards Greenwald, or any other homosexual unless they behave in a manner similar to James Kirchick or Dan Savage and openly show preferential treatment towards tyrants simply because they like them on the gay issue while beating up on otherwise solid liberty-proponents simply because they are openly Christian. I don't have to tell anyone how many gay liberals I've had chew me out because Ron Paul was a Christian, despite his conciliar tone on this issue. Now, most of these idiots believed that Obama was some kind of secret atheist (he might be, but we have little proof of this apart from him badmouthing certain members of the religious right and mocking the Sermon On The Mount), so this isn't a straight line thing regarding being a homosexual, but I noticed more tended towards that view from my own anecdotal experience.

I personally couldn't care less about the Duck Dynasty guy. He's going to probably become even richer from all of this brouhaha, whereas A&E will be faced with losing a huge chunk of their audience by pandering to another segment of their audience. If I was in charge of that network, I would have simply had a disclaimer at the beginning of the show and that would have been the end of it.

Why does this posting get to

Why does this posting get to stay on the front page for such a long boring time when other posts that have more substance are quickly buried?

Glenn Greenwald is a hero.

I admire Glenn Greenwald. Period. He's an outstanding journalist. He's a courageous man.

Totally agree

I love that man. ... If I was gay, and we were both single, I would date him immediately. ;)

Glenn Greenwald is second only to Edward Snowden (and of course

Ron Paul) as the greatest hero so far in the 21st Century.

REGARDLESS of his sexual orientation.

Gay?

I have never seen him looking joyful... he is always talking about heavy topics. Kinda brings your mood down.

lol

So he is an UN-gay homosexual because he is constantly fighting a frenzied and sobering fight for liberty that is taxing and more than I have been able to do. I was a Ron Paul delegate and contribute to liberty candidates, but I hate city council meeting and can't seem to get to the meet ups or republican party gatherings. I don't write as well as Glen and I feel for him. I know he is in danger for not just his own freedom but mine.

Who gives a shiite?

Judgement from whom and why? If I told you a was a blackenese, red-headed, nazi, hermaphrodite,that eats bunnies, would you find need of offense and cast judgement? Acting like God's personal cheerleader and executioner of any judgement, makes you seem like a biotch. No matter what your intent.

Rah rah rah sis boom bah

The term "hermaphrodite" is offensive. The preferred term is "intersex". "Blackanese" is offensive. The correct term is "biracial". Eating bunnies can be seen as subsidizing animal murder/kidnapping/enslavement. And being a Nazi makes you a bigot, but being an intersex, biracial Nazi makes you a self-hating bigot.

Red hair is okay, though.

LOL Sigh

I give up.....

But you can't give up.

You posted it. So keep explaining it.

Quit your job if need be (the job you told me prevents you from debating it all day). It is the weekend and the Christmas holiday is fast upon us so maybe people will have lost interest and it will have slipped down by then.

You are well aware that I tried to stand up for you (actually stand up for Glen Greenwald because I am not particularly concerned about YOU) and you jumped all over me.

So keep explaining. You have an obligation.

You again!

Takes a lot of guts to post a video of what you did when you saw

my last post. I hope you will be able to read this, my response, on your cube neighbor's monitor.

Sorry it upset you so bad.

You should probably get a haircut and lose weight.

DOWN VOTES for standing up for Glenn Greenwald and trying

to explain what this guy dexterszyd really meant other than only announcing that Greenwald is gay (as if it matters). Go figure.

Anyone Care?

does anyone here on the DP really care if Greenwald is gay? i don't even see how that merits a forum topic. leave this to fox news.

meow

seen this post up here for a while so I must ask

who?

So..... Do all this people

who work for the NSA or it's private contractors leave their brains at work after the day is done.... or they go and play the STOCK MARKET with the information they obtain from working at the NSA or GCHQ ......???
The subject of the STOCK MARKETS from all over he world has been down played by the media, it seems that is a very hot potato to handle.
Since 2002 to 2008, the NSA and its CONTRACTORS, had an open hand to do anything that they wanted, without any supervision from anyone. People with direct access to powerful government officials (Example- Warren Buffett) can easily gain access to this espionage cartel & look like geniuses in their investing.

Ron Swanson

It should be pointed out that the originator of this post said

he used this headline to show how BAD those who concentrate on Glenn Greenwald's sexuality are.

He was actively posting and answering questions to show that he wasn't actually knocking Greenwald for being gay - but was knocking those who make a big issue of it.

A noble idea. But it doesn't work and it requires some explaining when he ISN'T here defending his post and explaining his choice of words for his topic.

Response

First, I work for a living and don't get paid to sit here and debate you all day.

Secondly, do me a favor and point out specifically where I said or even inferred how people were BAD that concentrate on Glens sexuality.

Thirdly, note my dozen responses below participating in the dialog.

Lastly, I am intrigued by your posture here and why you so vehemently are persisting in dissecting words and phrases when the message is as simple and clear. It is meant to illicit critical thinking. A man who most herald as doing a noble thing and caring the banner for Snowden also happens to be gay....hmmmm perhaps being gay really doesn't matter if we look at someone's character.

And...ALAS! There just happens to be a divisive topic all over the news and DP about a reality TV star that "spoke his mind" about his opinion on sexual orientation. All that being said , this post is meant to serve as an example that it really doesn't matter what anyone's preference is if character is the benchmark.

I can't believe this has to be spelled out....what's your axe to grind ?

For Freedom!
The World is my country, all mankind is my brethren, to do good is my religion.

Despite you intentions and your continued denial, to readers who

comes upon your post - you make it look like you are knocking a great man for being GAY.

Get a clue guy and read the responses of the people who post when you are not here to explain what you REALLY meant.

You put up an alarmist and controversial subject line and then have to explain to every poster that you are not really knocking him for that. But when you are not here constantly explaining - THATS EXACTLY WHAT PEOPLE THINK YOU ARE DOING!

If you don't have time (because you work) to explain what you really mean - then maybe you shouldn't post something so easily misinterpreted!

I can't believe you don't get it. Seems to me that you are simply stubbornly into denial.

Awesome

I beg to differ, it's been up voted and I think most get it. There are a minority of those that either don't get it ,simply are contrarian for the sake of instigating or have some other agenda motivating them.

Nevertheless, I'm content and have a respected posting history here on the DP.

Peace
