Glenn Greenwald is now David Brooks



The easiest way to do that is to tell a tribal oppressor/oppressed story and build your own innocence on your status as victim. Just about everybody can find a personal victim story. Once you’ve identified your herd’s oppressor — the neoliberal order, the media elite, white males, whatever — your goodness is secure. You have virtue without obligation. Nothing is your fault. -- David Brooks, "The Retreat to Tribalism"

And if you don't think that's hella hilarious, you're just not having enough fun.

Also, even though he still has the unspent balance of the quarter of a billion dollar payday his patron handed him, Mr. Greenwald still cannot afford to buy a single mirror.


Behold, a Tip Jar!

I read some horse shit last night that Greenwald had written, and at first recoiled from its stench, then thought to myself "Welp, there'll be a good Driftglass post tomorrow..."

Speaking of Glen, what did you give up for Lent this year? Almost over.

He’s been pimping Charles Murray again, he’s been called out for it, and he’s attacked those who criticize him andurray’s pseudoscience.

He got busted pimping Charles Murray and his racist pseudoscience again, which caused him to go on the attack.
