    Greenwald has been going downhill steadily for years, but I too would like to know the reason for the outburst.

    People using him as a way to defend Maduro, while pretending they are not defending him, all while blaming a supposedly planned invasion of the Venezuela by the US as the reason why Maduro's so terrible.

    My hatred for Glen Greenwald isn't news, and probably isn't for the same reason as Invictus.

    But yes. Stockpile food now, while you still can.

    If I have to guess, you hate him for being a Russian stooge and financed by an obviously biased and compromised billionaire while helping another Russian stooge, Snowden, with both being true believers, and being true believer mean they should betray the US and give its secrets to any corrupt authortiarian regime because "USA bad".

    If that assumption is correct, interestingly enough, the root reasons we hate him are the same. Both stem from him being both a sold out hack and yet managing to be a true believer, a dangerous mix where he will lie about whatever he needs to try to sell his ideological message for "the greater good". In this case, Greenwald's husband, David Miranda, is a Brazilian version or him, who shits and lies about Brazilian laws to sell his message internationally, and more or less bought a seat in our House of Representatives so he call sell out as much secrets he can, I mean, so he can keep democracy alive in our newly installed fascist regime. Greenwald's the main reason Miranda was able to do that, all while The Intercept supports both our former corrupt regime and Venezuela, because anyone that isn't a shitstain left-wing ideologue (just being left ideologue isn't enough, gotta be a terrible person and support terrible person because anything ANTI-USA is good) is obviously a fascist, violent regime.

    Okay, I stand corrected. That, and for what he and Snowden did to damage the national security and intelligence collection efforts of the US.

    (Well, ladies and gents, it has happened. The apocalypse is indeed upon us. Hug your loved ones, for time is short.)

    Please, Harry/Draco has nothing on this pairing. Especially in the angst department.

    Harry/Draco is slash which I don't read.

    DR/Invictus is a heterosexual pairing between two sexually repressed nerds.

    He's a Brazilian lawyer with a chip on his shoulder. He's an American bureaucrat dedicated to justice and snark, only a few thousand days from retirement. Together, they fuck fight crime.

    Actually made me think of something. Didn't a US court rule that Trump couldn't block people on his accounts because FB/Twitter was equivalent to the modern town square? Not directly analogue but still related arguments.

    Essentially, yes, though if memory serves, that ruling is currently being appealed.

    If it sticks as a precedent we might see a couple of interesting cases pop up.

    This makes no sense. Those are private companies.
