Our Kind of Traitor

Barack Obama has given Chelsea Manning something close to a presidential pardon.

The New York Times:

WASHINGTON — President Obama on Tuesday largely commuted the remaining prison sentence of Chelsea Manning, the army intelligence analyst convicted of an enormous 2010 leak that revealed American military and diplomatic activities across the world, disrupted the administration and made WikiLeaks, the recipient of those disclosures, famous.

The decision by Mr. Obama rescued Ms. Manning, who twice tried to kill herself last year, from an uncertain future as a transgender woman incarcerated at the men’s military prison at Fort Leavenworth, Kan. She has been jailed for nearly seven years, and her 35-year sentence was by far the longest punishment ever imposed in the United States for a leak conviction.

The act of clemency could be seen as a reversal, at least in part, of the Obama administration’s unprecedented criminal crackdown on leaking: The administration has brought charges in about nine cases, about twice as many as under all previous presidents combined.

Was Chelsea Manning a traitor? Of course, she was. But we live in traitorous times.

Rightists get triggered by traitors. Rightly so. Add to this Manning’s sexual fluidity, and she . . . or he . . . or whatever . . . fits the bill as the ultimate right-wing punching bag: disloyal, perverted, un-American, etc.

We shouldn’t forget a few things, however.

Manning was heroically brave. She risked her life to oppose and expose a system she viewed as evil; she was ruthless enough to go through with a covert operation; she achieved success and willingly paid the price.

The system Manning opposed hates us, or rather it views us as material to be absorbed into global American mono-culture. Manning thus contributed to the de-legitimization of the American empire, just as she was a symptom of it.

The empire has created many victims and botched souls . . . sons sent home in bodybags or in dresses.

Manning was a victim who chose to fight back. That’s what we should remember.

Hopefully you have regained your sanity in the 7 months since this article was posted. You do realize, you were referring to poor, mutilated Bradley Manning as “she”? That is just sick.

Spencer’s right. Manning is obviously sub-human, but it did a good service to harm the operation meant to benefit Jews. In my younger, flag-waving zealot days, I served in Iraq at various times from 2004-09. I didn’t realize then, but it was such a win-win for Team Yellow Star – because whites would die while killing Muslims at the same time. If you’re a hooknose, you love that situation like dreidel on crack. So, Manning definitely did his/her part to harm that mission. On the flip side of that dreidel, is that a disproportionate number of these men and women… Read more »

If Manning had learned to keep his mouth shut he would have never gotten into trouble (I thought the military was suppose to teach discipline.) So “she” was brave but also very dumb. Not very good at being “covert.” And anyone who has ever read any kind of book on war (not including fantasy garbage like the stuff Tom Clancy would write) knows that this kind of shit happens. They know that war is not kind and that innocent people get killed in horrible ways. Anyone who believed that the US military (or any military for that matter) never murdered… Read more »

To the leaks, yeah, as much as they sound terrible in principle, they went to Wikileaks, and the WikiLeaks principle proved to be good and useful, so they’re ultimately good. Present governments, unfortunately, are not something one should be supportive of, and adhering to their principles will lead to bad things. To the he/she polemics, I don’t understand why people think using ‘he’ will make it less confusing. It might if the person is in front of you, because then you deny the delusion. But as far as articles and the such go, calling someone who is presenting a female… Read more »

“the WikiLeaks principle proved to be good and useful”

That depends on exactly what your agenda is.

Certainly, if your only agenda was to get Trump elected, Wikileaks was useful during the campaign.

But Wikileaks has been around for a while and from a pro-white (and Judeo-skeptical) perspective their record is mixed, to say the least.

burntgoodies
Guest

You’re right, of course. Didn’t mean to say Wikileaks had been 100% good.
Which is why I also used useful. To what agenda though?
Definitely not just electing Trump, but general destabilization of the current governments, the illusions of liberalism and democracy, as well as weakening many of their weapons.

Why are LGBTs so vastly over-represented in the military and the intelligence services? “A Call For Papers: ANolen.com ” http://web.archive.org/web/20150201155600/http://anolen.com/2014/09/02/a-call-for-papers/ Last week three prominent members of the US military put their support behind a study from The Palm Center which suggests that the US Military should lift their ban on openly transgendered service members. I was not surprised by this development: considering the military’s 2011 decision to support openly gay soldiers, supporting openly transgendered ones seems like the logical next step. What did surprise me was that these prominent military figures, which include a former Army acting surgeon general and… Read more »

Mary Whittier

I think it is best to quietly let Chelsea Manning fade into obscurity. She is not really “hero material” because her trans-mental illness renders her a broken, divisive figure. Good luck to her. She is going to need it, as well as lots of therapy.

TJ

‘she”s still a dude. now a dude with a mental problem

Mary Whittier
Guest

I agree with you, but I am willing to concede the “she” pronoun to Chelsea Manning, perhaps because it is convenient. Manning dresses like a woman and takes feminizing hormones and has taken a female name, so for the sake of convenience I am willing to grudgingly describe Manning as “she”. However, I always cringe a bit inside & it makes me uncomfortable to do so.

Take your (((psychoanalysis))) crap and cram it up your ass.

He can sit in his house and wear his dress, and if he concerns you that much, you can donate money to help him, but I’ll be spending mine on my children instead. Zero tolerance is reserved for if Manning comes to my house, or if you come to my house trying to take… Read more »

Partly, but it also has to do with the same kind of Puritan Yankee-ism that encourages faggots to meddle with my family. Some of them want to take money away from my children and give it to pro-homosexual institutions, while others want to take money away from my children and give it to anti-homosexual institutions. I don’t want to pay for medical students to learn how to give Manning his surgery, and I don’t want to pay for Jesus or Sharia patrols to make sure people are having the right kind of sex and using correct pronouns.

Manning sacrificed everything for something she believed in. I dont know anything about her but that she has been at the mercy of her enemies that hate her for a decade. That will damage you. Destroy you, even. No matter who you are. I dont know if this is an old condition in Manning. I dont know if we hurt her by indulging this gender confusion. But using “she” is a sign of acceptance for a person that has suffered horribly. She will have to find her own way back to becoming a human being again after all she has… Read more »

If Obama were threatening to hang you as a traitor or lock you up for 35 years for trying to resist another Jewish war, you might claim any kind of insanity defense available to you in an attempt to get out. And lo and behold, it worked–the only whistleblower Obama pardoned was the one who began demanding a “sex change” after he’d been confined and tortured. Manning has his/her/whatever life back just because Obama was a soulless metrosexual shabbos goy who wanted to be credited for pardoning weirdos only. Earl Turner had an electrified rod shoved up his ass by… Read more »
Rutger3
Guest

It might have played a part. But the most likely reason Obama pardons Manning is that Assange has said that he would give himself up if Manning is released. Meaning he would stand trial with Trump as president. If he gets a lenient sentence this will reinforce the lefts narrative “Assange+Putin stole the US election for Trump” and strengthen the lefts delegitimization campaign against Trump. If Assange gets a harsh sentence under Trump this might be used to drive a wedge between Assange affecionados and Trump. After all, large part of anti war people leanded Trump.

HighArka
Guest
Maybe so. I tend to think that Obama is imagining history books fifty years from now, and (maybe for the sake of his adopted daughters’ political careers, or maybe not) wants to be known as the president who was actually anti-war or pro-freedom, therefore he pardoned a well-known prisoner. Your explanation is more practical; I guess it depends on how much the DLC is guiding Obama’s future. Assange is taking on a rather celebrity-ish role in all of this, which is a bad sign. Whenever they anoint a celebrity, it ends up getting used against us in some way.

There was no belief system involved. The guy was bored and resentful of the world, so he acted out irrationally and put innocent people in danger as a result. There isn’t more to the story than that.

No one was put in danger. GTFO.

He released secret files from the SIPRnet which contained countless names of individuals involved in military operations and their locations. There is a reason this type of information becomes classified.

SpiritSplice

The vast majority of classified data has no reason to be classified. Since not a single bad thing happened to anyone your claim is absurd.

It does jeopardize America’s security if Americans find out how unprofessional our dindu and mestizo soldiers act when they’re given advanced weaponry and unleashed on a civilian populace. If we had honorable soldiers, the Pentagon would’ve been live-streaming the entire war.

Releasing tapes of most of our infantry at work is like releasing tapes of NFL players partying. Never turns out good, so the league fines you for it.

Rutger3

I dispise Americas influence in the world. But the conduct of Americas soldiers IS honorable compared to other wars. I mean, read about the thirty yeras war, for example. That was conducted by non mestizo but still dindunothin soldiers. That were more or less from the same people. When a civilian population is put at the mercy of a foreign army bad things happen. But less bad things have happened when the army was american, generally speaking. Soldiers are inherently evil to their foes. That is their function. But the evil in America is no more in its soldiers than… Read more »

I can’t support what Manning did, but I don’t think it counts as treason. What Snowden did – if he did what we think he did, if it really wasn’t a CIA op, which it very well might have been – that is treason. Snowden didn’t just release classified information to the US media, he has been openly collaborating with a foreign intelligence service. That’s actually treason. Snowden, to a huge degree, and Manning, to a lesser degree, became media stars for a reason. They were useful to whatever faction controls the media for reasons that are not entirely clear.… Read more »

Binney was arrested – the arrest was intended to intimidate him – but the charges were dropped as he apparently committed no crime. So it’s completely different than what Manning did and isn’t even in the same universe of what Snowden did. Binney did it years before Snowden – anyone who had learned about what Binney exposed wasn’t surprised in the least when the Snowden docs came out. In fact, even before Binney an AT&T employee leaked the fact that NSA had a direct connection to AT&T entire backbone network center in San Francisco, thus knew that NSA was copying… Read more »
