      Traitor to what… the corporations that run America?

      Better a hero of moral conscience and humanity than a cog in America’s corporate kill machine.

      Fair play and all to Chelsea!

        Well a traitor to her nation by the definition of the term traitor. She committed treason. She did it for the right reasons and I personally think she should be set free, but she still committed treason.

          Nah…. those that wrote the proclamation for America’s independence can be found to have said that the people of America should ward off the incursions of the banking system and the arms industry behind the scenes in the running America.

          Banks, oil and the arms industry run America. That’s who Manning blew the whistle on.

          And so considering how the founders viewed things, I’m sure they’d praise him for it… and so, IMO and that of many others, he ain’t no traitor.

          My tuppence.

            I’m super sensitive to it. I mistook a trans woman for a drag queen before and asked her what time she was on at. Still cringe thinking about it.

      A relax would you, I certainly admire people who make extremely difficult decisions/choices of conscience , no matter how misguided they are …

      You can argue about being a traitor to the USA, but definitely a friend of freedom for the rest of us.

      I know, right?! No doubt you wouldn’t catch most of that shower in the Oireachtas ever making a stand with the “plebs”! Probably sipping on their subsidised xmas drinks at the Dail bar.

    surprised Mick Wallace was able to attend – did he have no terrorism trial in the SCC to attend?
