Excellent pod about Ms. Winner.

Kerry Howley wrote an in-depth profile of Reality Winner for New York Magazine and joins to share the compelling story of who Winner is, why she did it, and the severe treatment she's received at the hands of the United States government.

I'm just gonna suggest you tough it out and do the time until Trump is replaced, y'know?

You don't want him to remember you're alive and not being beaten regularly by goon squads. Because he might suggest this is coddling. And a lot of your guards probably wear MAGA hats.

I'd love to think I was joking but I'm really not. He's feeling the oats of "do anything I want" power now.

It's a dangerous time to be at the mercy of people who always dreamed of a white Thug-in-Chief now that they have found their god.

On one hand, Trump loves a winner. On the other hand, he hates reality.

Holy shiat! That person is still alive?!  Best to stay low & shut up for a few years.  That's the American Way nowadays.

She's a hero.
 
2020-02-21 8:41:38 PM  
In light of Edward Snowden, Chelsea Manning and Julian Assange, should we consider her a hero or a security risk?
 
2020-02-21 8:41:57 PM  
And, yes, she'll get it.

Because Trump is a moron.

Goodness. Everything boils down to 'Trump is a moron'.

Has the country not figured this (that he's a moron) out yet?

Trump = moron

Not sure else how to state it. Little help?

Greenwald pretty much screwed her over with how the docs she provided were published.

She's a black woman who got in legal trouble for revealing proof that Trump, a misogynistic white supremacist, did a naughty.

And she's asking that same misogynistic white supremacist for mercy? She's lucky he's a coward, because his cowardice is the only thing stopping him from personally executing her at his next klan rally.

Not only that but she leaked the documents to the Intercept because of Greenwald's Russia denial.

Okay, so please pay no attention to my error. I do not currently have the correct amount of alcohol in my veins.

The rest of my point is that she's in legal trouble for knowingly publishing proof that Trump did a naughty, and is asking him for clemency. For some reason I'm not convinced that she's thought her cunning plan all the way through.

Hell he might do it just based on her name. "I was a reality winner many times. Even when we were announcing other people winners on my show, they would always come up to me and say 'Sir, you're the real winner here'. And I was."

Trump identifies as a billionaire, it doesn't make him one. I identify as a male lesbian, but nobody buys it.

Assange is 110% a russian asset.

Snowden kind of 50/50.

Manning 50/50.

Reality Winnier is 100% a hero.

The intelligence agencies all claim they are protecting the country and are really patriotic but none of these self-absorbed pricks ever did anything to stop a clear russian asset from gaining the presidency. They never leaked anything to destroy him. Apparently their paycheck is more important than democracy. So fark em.

Wasn't Manning and Snowden like way before Trump?

Trump follows the "what's in it for me?" mantra. If the whistleblower can offer something he wants, she might have a chance.

That's the correct term outside of the USA. it's the one I would use too

African American is neither race nor nationality. Perhaps ethnic group at most

A Canadian, Caribbean, or UK citizen who is "generously gifted with melanin" is not African American. They are black.

If the race is commonly referred to without prejudice as Black, it shouldn't be an issue to refer to those members of the African American ethnicity as also being racially black

Should it?

Unless I missed the point completely and it's challenging whether ms winner is actually black, white, or something else. Mixed race?
