Bradley Manning in Orwellistan

Heroism is criminal in the empire of cowardice.

Orwell would be unsurprised at this alternate version of his observation (if it was truly his to begin with).  It's just the other side of the coin.

How truly bizarre that when I went to search for the original Orwell quote, "Truth is treason in the empire of lies", almost every search result was from a "conservative" site- many of them "Tea Party" related.  Yet, who is most angry at Bradley Manning and Edward Snowden for revealing truth?  "Conservatives" and those in positions of political power*.

*(Those in positions of political power are ALWAYS "conservatives", since they wish to "conserve" that power and keep those positions available to fill.  Just as those in positions of political power are ALWAYS "progressives" since they always push their new violations on the basis of it being positive "progress".  Both are evil.)

And please don't forget.



  1. How much do you know about Bradley Manning? He is a ridiculous person. I find it embarrassing that he even got into the army at all, let alone had access to classified documents.

  2. What's "ridiculous" is concerning oneself with the person of Bradley Manning and ignoring the war crimes- the crimes against humanity (one individual at a time)- committed by those he exposed. I could not possibly care less whether Manning insisted on wearing a clown outfit and calling himself "Sparkles"- he did a service by exposing murderers. Nothing in his personal life justifies what his detractors did/do or support.
