    Whats the worst that could happen .. a 3 Day ban from MMOC? /s

    Too bad this guy didnt sell out to Green Glennwald first. They he's be on a plane to Moscow about now.

    Coincidentally, Ed Snowden was another 20-something, racist, libertarian/RW, know-it-all, white dude, who thought he was 'enlightened'.

    The worst short of capital punishment?

    23 hours a day of solitary confinement in a concrete block barely bigger than a couple of square meters. Some US prisons does that on the supermax side of the scale where some people guilty of things like espionage and treason are kept locked up.

    Source? But even is he was, there's no sane planet on which he isn't a legitimate whistle blower. Snowden that is.

    Also, how about we don't automatically turn into CIA bootlickers just because right now the CIA happens to be on the right side of things. Even a broken clock is right twice a day, but that doesn't change the fact that Snowden was a legitimate whistle blower.

    His leaks weren't party affiliated.

    Your positions are sometimes really fucking disgusting. Will you bootlick the US government when they herd minorities into death camps and waterboard "Antifa terrorists" under the next GOP administration?

    Unfair comparison.

    Snowden may have made mistakes, from the fact that he didn't know the sheer volume of data that he's leaking, to that he evaded justice in Russia of all places, but the intent to reveal government overreach by the intelligence agencies should still recognized.
    Nevermind that this done during times when the US wasn't directly supplying another nation that's currently fighting for survival against a hostile aggressor with both weapons and intelligence.

    At face value, this was done out of plainly self serving purpose to please one's own ego and make themselves look like the "cool kid" within a small circle, never intended for a broader audience.

    There are some quotes from 08-12 from Snowden on online forums that are certainly on the fringe, altough i'd place him more in the libertarian spectrum than conservative one.

    He once remarked in 09 that he was "terrified" to see that many muslims in London and thought he got off the plane at the wrong place.

    Didn't they recently have a law going through that would have prevented them from recruiting supremacists and those posting in hate group venues only for the Republicans filibuster it?
    Since we can't call out Trolls and Bad Faith posters and the Ignore function doesn't actually ignore it. Add

    to your ublock or adblock filter to actually ignore ignored posters. Now just need a way to ignore responses to them as well.

    A 21-year-old Massachusetts Air National Guard member has been identified as the leader of a gaming chat group where classified U.S. intelligence documents were leaked. Jack Teixeira oversaw Thug Shaker Central, a group of 20-30 people sharing guns, memes, & games.

    what do you reckon 40+ years?

    US military really needs to deal with their anti-government goon/nazi problem. I just hope we haven't spread this shit to Ukraine.

    Manning got 35 years so somewhere about that.
    It ignores such insignificant forces as time, entropy, and death

    Eh, this entire thing opens whole box because it dangles very close to supporting Russia's claims that Ukraine is run by Nazis, because stuff linked to the Azov Bridge isn't entirely without merit.

    For example, the House of representatives passed in 2018 legislation to ban the Azov Brigade from receiving any form of US aid.
    https://thehill.com/policy/defense/3...-to-neo-nazis/
    And some democrats even attempted to get the Unit listed as terrorist organization.
    https://www.vice.com/en/article/59nq...nal-terrorists

    There's also the topic of Stepan Bandera, a Ukrainian nationalist that allied himself with the Nazis in hopes of an independent Ukraine (guess how that worked out), and how Ukraine tends to over glorify him despite his rather...questionable views.

    Now it needs to be said that many countries have issues with rightwing extremists in their military and Ukraine is far from the only one, but assuming that this spread over from the US is obviously bogus.

    Again, extremely difficult topic because Russia tends to blow that shit out of proportions to justify their war on Ukraine.

    I mean, it's not remotely difficult though? The US simply has some problems with Nazi's because we continue to tolerate them politely.

    Ukraine has some Nazi's too.

    Russia also has plenty of their own Nazis'.

    You can find them anywhere and I'm extremely disinclined to think many people take Russian rhetoric seriously. Especially on the, "We're denazifying Ukraine!" nonsense.

    It's still silly to believe that this influence would somehow spread over to Ukraine.

    Nevermind that it's also a leap to assume that this person is a Nazi, racial slurs and a love for guns don't make a Nazi.

    finding out that while he convinced a discord of teenagers he was basically and action movie stars he's actually just a regular jackoff who is likely going to spend many decades in prison

    he'll have some great stories to tell his fellow inmates about those minors he impressed, especially the one that had to get parental consent to speak with WashPo about OG

    Hey man, maybe Benedict Cumberbatch will play him in an upcoming movie, or something ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    I'm nowhere near up to date on my "younger actors", but I imagine he'd be much more Seth Rogan than Benedick Cumberbutton.

    It was joke regarding the fact that Benedict alr played Julian Assange.

    It was not missed, though it was unacknowledged on my part and I probably should have made that bit clear. I was more just trying to take the piss out on this absolute chud of a human being.

    This guy is a Nazi, so by default he'll get the "poor lost young man" treatment. I say he'll get 10, do 2, pardoned in 2024 if the GOOPers win.

    This is going to get interesting. There is no reason Teixeira, as a National Guard airman, would be read-in on these war planning documents.
    So the question is, who was? And who knew Teixeira? Smells like a spy ring to me, and Teixeira was a cutout.
