Chelsea Manning on Twitter: ‘F*** The Police’

Published

on

Wednesday is National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day, but it appears as though some are not feeling so appreciative.

“f*** the police,” said Chelsea (formerly Bradley) Manning on Twitter, using the hashtag National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day, with a photo of a burning Thin Blue Line flag.

“yearly reminder we live in a domestic military occupation in every major city,” Manning said in a second Tweet.

“my warrantless ‘welfare check’ with guns drawn,” Manning said in a third Tweet, linking to a story from The Intercept. 

On May 27, Manning posted two suicidal Tweets, one with a photo standing on a ledge looking down. The police did a welfare check, to which Manning apparently took offense. This is a “damned if you do, damned if you don’t” situation for police, who would have been criticized had they not checked Manning’s welfare. Still, The Intercept wrote a piece that was sympathetic to Manning.

Manning was convicted in 2013 on 21 charges, including six counts of espionage for stealing and leaking classified information to Wikileaks during a deployment to Iraq in 2009. Manning was charged with aiding the enemy, but not convicted, and transitioned to a female in prison, on the federal government dole. Manning’s 35 year sentence was commuted by President Barack H. Obama to just seven years.

The former soldier, who was accused of punching a female superior in the face, among various other disciplinary issues while deployed, ran for U.S. Senate in 2018 and placed second to Sen. Ben Cardin (D-Md.) in the Democratic primary. Cardin won 80.5 percent of the votes.

Leftist Michael Moore Chides Joe Biden for Pursuing “White Racist Redneck Votes in Michigan”

Moore isn’t happy Biden is going for Republican voters.

Leftist filmmaker Michael Moore blasted Democratic nominee for pursuing what he termed as “white racist redneck votes in Michigan in a Saturday tweet.

Moore took offense at Biden’s decision to accept the endorsement of NeverTrump RINO former Michigan Governor Rick Snyder. Snyder, who left office as one of the most unpopular governors in the history of the state, oversaw the response to the Flint water crisis.

Moore saw it as offensive that Biden would tout Snyder’s endorsement on the basis of the water scandal, in which tens of thousands of mostly black Flint residents were provided with contaminated and dangerous tap water on the part of the state.

It’s of some political importance to point out that Joe Biden isn’t a socialist. He’s a neoliberal corporate Democrat with a long track record of policy positions that are distinct from the track record of socialists such as Bernie Sanders. The former Vice President is planning on coasting to victory through making inroads with senior and suburban affluent voters, but his reluctance to pay homage to young left-wing voters who formed a considerable part of the 2008 Obama coalition could spell his November downfall.

Moore’s description of supposed “white racist redneck voters” in Michigan doesn’t exactly spell much in support of new voter outreach on the part of Democrats, suggesting that the seemingly malleable Democrat coalition might stretch too much and figuratively explode.
