Glenn Greenwald called out neoconservatives on Tucker Carlson’s show on Friday.
Greenwald specifically called out journalists and columnists clamoring for war with Iran. He also expressed disbelief with how certain journalists, who get foreign policy matters wrong, end up getting cushy gigs in the journalist space.
He singled out Jeffrey Goldberg of The Atlantic, in particular, for being wrong about the Iraq War. The journalist claimed that “Jeffrey Goldberg’s articles won a national magazine award for creating a grotesque conspiracy that resulted in the death of hundreds of thousands of people.”
Greenwald concluded, “Not only should he not be in journalism, he should be out of decent society.”
When Tucker asked Greenwald about the bipartisan fetish for war, the progressive journalist responded that war “is exciting, so it drives media ratings, it makes people buy newspapers.”
Greenwald even cited the example of Ben Shapiro’s hawkish tweets, where he said, “Disproportionate response to attacks on US assets are a good way of showing our enemies that we will mash them if they continue to escalate.”
In his view, Shapiro’s comments are “something that people say when they go through life feeling inadequate, and without any kind of purpose or strength, so it gives people strength.”
The past week has had political commentators up in arms after President Trump decided to not strike Iran after it allegedly shot down an America drone in international waters. Ben Shapiro was one of the people notably calling for decisive military action.
Thankfully, for the America First crowd, Trump did not tow the neocon line.
Although not in the America First camp, Glenn Greenwald’s anti-war journalism has provided a strong defense against the calls for intervention from both neoliberals and neoconservatives in the Washington sphere.
Him and Tucker Carlson will likely be some of the loudest voices for non-interventionism in the next year.
Merrick Garland Suggests that Getting Rid of Lawsuit Protections is Not a Second Amendment Violation
Garland as AG will be a disaster for the right to bear arms.
If Merrick Garland is nominated as Attorney General, the Second Amendment is in big trouble.
Based on his comments at a Senate hearing on February 22, 2021, Garland made a suggestion that the repeal of lawsuit protections for gun manufacturers is not unconstitutional.
AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News reminded his readers that President Joe Biden campaigned on a platform of repealing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which shielded lawful gun manufacturers from lawsuits.
In a previous Breitbart News report, Biden spoke at an MSNBC forum in 2019 alongside gun control organizations such as March for Our Lives where he expressed his support for gun manufacturers to be subject to lawsuits.
At the speech, Biden suggested that the PLCC be repealed. He declared, “No other outfit in history has gotten this kind of protection” and asserted that the legal actions would bring about “change overnight.”
In a subsequent occasion on February 7, 2020, Breitbart News covered Biden’s remarks to a New Hampshire crowd, in which he stated that it was a “mistake” to shield firearms manufacturers from lawsuits. He continued, “The first thing I’m going to do as president is work to get rid of that.”
Later that month, Breitbart News recalled how Biden called out gun manufacturers at a South Carolina rally and boasted, “I’m going to take you down.”
According to a report by The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah Senator Mike Lee asked Garland about his views on removing protections for gun manufacturers. Garland responded, “I have not thought myself deeply about this. I don’t think it raises a Second Amendment issue.”
When he was questioned if he is in favor of Biden’s plans to ban so-called “assault weapons”, Garland responded, “Where there is room under the law for the president’s policies to be pursued, then I think the president is entitled to pursue them.”
Biden’s track record as a gun control proponent is well-documented. From his support of gun-free zones at schools to the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, Biden is Gun Control Inc.’s guy. With Democrats in control of the House and the Senate, there will most certainly be attempts to ram gun control down our throats. If they can’t beat us legislatively, they will most certainly use the courts to undermine the Second Amendment. Pro-gun organizations should be ready to lawyer up and use whatever means possible to keep courts from destroying our rights.
