Glenn Greenwald: The latest in my series of weird interactions with the Dogtick caught on the butt-cheek of journalism:
Portland Oregon— The Proudboys announce their plans to terrorize the city this past Saturday. At the last minute, they re-brand the event as “The Summer of Love” using hippy imagery and fooling no one. As usual, they come armed with bats, real guns and homemade weapons. They shoot off a lot of paintball guns, while Antifa shoots off fireworks.
What’s most important to note is that the police announced they were standing down. In other words— doing nothing. They do this to send the message that the Proudboys are welcome to terrorize Portland, OR. Sure enough, they pulled people out of cars, tipped over a van and ran through the streets firing a real gun.
During the insanity, a journalist named Maranie Staab was attacked on two occasions— first by “a right winger,” (in the words of Ford Fischer who filmed the incident), then second, by Black Blok. The right winger apparently used WD-40, and Black blok, pepper spray or similar.
What happened to Maranie sucks— but when the police don’t do their job— or worse— take sides, people will do what they think they have to to stay safe. The right winger ran at Maranie. In the case of black blok, she unwisely approached them.
Later, the right winger Dennis G. Anderson was arrested for firing his gun— but that’s the level things have to get to get the police to do their job.
As usual, Glenn was caught telling only half the story— and spent most of yesterday tweeting only about Antifa.
Glenn obviously knows who pays him.
I email to Glenn: Video shows Maranie attacked by right winger.
Your omissions reveal that you could give a fuck about journalists, and you’re just interested in raising outrage about Antifa for obvious financial incentives.
I had no idea about this “update” until you emailed me about it, and will be happy to note it, but it’s absolutely hilarious to watch the journalist herself tell you what an absolute moron and liar you are for trying to claim that it negates anything I said about what happened to her at the hands of Antifa:
Maranie is a little off-base, but clearly doesn’t say any of what Glenn claims— so I respond as Glenn:
Yes, my lovely uglies— Let the hate flow!!
I am Glenn Greenwald, and I am great and I am good. And so long as I can be close to my precious maggotses dung, it can be ground into a fine powder and laid out into long, long lines on a pretty mirror for nasal consumption!
That bad Flowerman bringing attention to the existence of the additional evidences makes him very, very bad indeed. Servant! Bring me my word-book! What is good word for “bad?”
Ah, yes. The Flowerman is moron!! Mmmwwahahaha! His evidence is moron!! I call him liar!! Type these words into word-box!
But Master Glenn, Maranie no say these words. Flowerman only post Ford Fischer tweet to make Master inform!
Be quiet, you vermin! I did not repeatedly sell myself out and suffer through years of being Tucker’s servant to listen to your insubordinance!
We make the word-box now!
We make the word-box now!
Rod Webber is sick of your bullshit, and you should be too.
