    But it truly crossed the line when we were accused of willing to follow the president to the showers. When we were accused of turning a blind eye to a police state. When we were slammed for merely offering a different point of view on Snowden.

    As you stated Troubadour, we weren't allowed to defend ourselves without being insulted from here to eternity. Their point of view was not allowed to be challenged, even by people who knew a thing or two about the legalities of the NSA.

    Bullies through and through. Pretty despicable behavior.

    Some people have a real problem with Snowden stealing classified secrets and then leaving the country, which is a pretty normal reaction to have actually.

    •  Yep, totally despicable. (2+ / 0-)

      On the subject of Snowden, releasing the information seems justified, but fleeing the country rather than proving his seriousness by defending his actions in a US court does seem like the act of a pretty arrogant and self-interested person.  Maybe the public benefits from the acts of an arrogant and self-interested person who becomes at odds with an institution full of worse, but acknowledging that doesn't require pretending the man is other than dubious.
