Glenn Greenwald Crushes Neocons on Tucker Carlson’s Show

Published

on

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.

Rapper Lil Wayne Breaks the Silence on George Floyd’s Death

Published

on

On May 29, 2020, Lil Wayne commented on the death of George Floyd.

The controversial death involved Minneapolis Police Department officer Derek Chauvin placing his knee on Floyd’s neck as he was handcuffed on the ground.

“I think when we see these situations, I think we also have to understand that we have to get very specific. … And what I mean by that is we have to stop viewing it with such a broad view, meaning we have to stop placing the blame on the whole force and the whole everybody or a certain race or everybody with a badge,” Wayne remarked during an IG Live chat with rapper Fat Joe.

Wayne added: “We have to actually get into who that person is. And if we want to place the blame on anybody, it should be ourselves for not doing more than what we think we’re doing.”

On top of that, the New Orleans rapper explained why he doesn’t always go public on these political issues.

“What else am I gonna do after that?” Wayne said to Fat Joe. “Some people put a tweet out and they think they did something. Some people wear a shirt and they think they did something. What you gonna do after that? Did you actually help the person? Did you actually help the family? Did you actually go out there and do something? So, if I ain’t about to do all that, then I ain’t about to do nothing. I’ll pray for ya.”

Wayne shared more of his thoughts regarding how people should process information during times of controversy.

“It’s actually learning about it,” Wayne commented. “What we need to do is we need to learn about it more. If we wanna scream about something, know what we’re screaming about. If we wanna protest about something, know what we’re protesting about. Because if we wanna get into it, there’s a bunch of facts that we think we know that we don’t know. … We scream about things that, sometimes, they really ain’t true.”

Wayne and Joe’s full discussion can be viewed below:

Riots have spread to other cities across the U.S., which included Minneapolis, where Floyd was killed. On May 29, Derek Chauvin received charges of murder and manslaughter in the killing of Floyd.
