The mighty reporter of the Snowden scoop turns out to be a vicious misogynist

I feel like whenever someone call JK Rowling 'Karen', someone needs to post a screenshot of Karen White.

Jeez what a prick. And I see on the last tweet you posted, George Takei thinks that sex is a spectrumhmm. That’s more science fiction he’s into then.

Glenn Greenwald has always been a raging misogynist. After years of wondering what the hell was wrong with him, I even wrote about it. That was all the way back in 2011.

His critiques if the Shrub's presidency were good. That was about all.

Fucks sake. Kind of proves her point though, really - women, particulary older women do not have stories that are worthy of attention and compassion. Our pain is counterfeit, our histories are false, our needs are confected.

How can someone honestly look themselves in the eye and dismiss JKR as someone privileged weaponising “victim hood” in the defence of a narrative populated by Caitlin Jenner, Jennifer Pritzker and the Wachowskis??!

He's an insufferable prick. If it wasn't for Laura Poitras, he would have missed the Snowden scoop and we all might have avoided his rantings.

Here's part of his justification:

He left off the main reason obviously.

Corbyn supporters are mental. Literally cultish.

If anyone needs another reason to despise Frankie Boyle - here you go. What an utterly loathsome individual he is.

Collidascope Fri 12-Jun-20 09:42:44

Frankie Boyle is like Dominic Cummings - makes a living off pretending that he isn't part of the establishment, while completely being part of it. Oh and she's not a billionaire, Frankie. She's given away millions, and weirdly none of her money has been made from making young women feel shit about their appearance or making rape jokes about disabled kids.

Nice to see Robert Webb calling him out

FB is an arse. Never liked him - always thought he was the type of man who just made fun of other people for laughs.

I used to admire this prick

But Glenn, there are many reasons why the UK is pro women rights 'epicentre'

The question is, why should it be a problem for you?

UK 'pathologies'

That would be women's rights, Glenn

He's a bit confused isn't he. A failed collapsed former empire? Would he rather we hadn't ended the arrangement and kept it going? Would he have described that as a success?

Dances Fri 12-Jun-20 22:51:37

Wtf is that JK thing from Frankie Boyle? How can it be 'the best'? It doesn't make sense at all.

Bet Ewen MacAskill will be delighted with that summary

Ha, you can actually hear him paddling furiously round in circles, trying to get out of the dangerous snare of logical questions ans thought provoking comments. What a dick.

Dances Fri 12-Jun-20 23:02:56

Greenwald nearly missed the Snowden story through sheer incompetence and has been riding its coat tails ever since.

As for Frankie Boyle - I simply believed who he was the first time he showed me. Haven't troubled myself with his testerical drivel since.

littlbrowndog Fri 12-Jun-20 23:06:35

Boyle total wanker

The other person seems like a total wanker as well

Dances Fri 12-Jun-20 23:10:34

If you drill down to the responses, there are many.

No response

He is a Zealot
