Their fight against Fascism is commendable!
These two young men have both been charged with traitorous crimes. Manning is currently being tried, Snowden is on the lamb.
Manning reportedly leaked confidential documents to Julian Assange producer of WikiLeaks.
No one in the government or the military has stated Manning’s action compromised national security.
Snowden reportedly shared classified material on a variety of top secret NSA programs.
Both these men have been condemned by politicians from both sides of the aisle.
President Obama who I worked to get re-elected has come out with criticism of both.
IMHO these men performed actions that were both brave and needed in the world today.
With the main stream media worldwide being under the control of 5 or 6 major corporations, the only way we as citizens of the world can expect to get any transparency is through leaks such as these.
Historical data shows fascism gains control of the media as part of their takeover of a government.
Fascism views political violence, war, and imperialism as a means to achieve national rejuvenation.
Fascists fear foreign people to a point of being xenophobic.
Their efforts also include the elimination of unions, need I say more here?
An in depth explanation of Fascism can be found here.
After reading the link you will be shocked by the similarities with what is going on in America today.
And so my friends look around you and see what is happening in this great country we live in and join me in support of both these brave souls.
You can help, write letters to the editor, share your thoughts on facebook, join with like minded individuals and attend your local party meetings, go to town hall meetings with elected officials and demand to be heard.
Together we can burn some sunshine through the dark oppressive clouds we are living under!
