Bradley Manning is a mentally ill traitor. Fortunately for him, he has plenty of peers in the mainstream media.
I’ve corrected the numerous typos in the following copy from Michael Isikoff at Yahoo News:
It would be hard to imagine the saga of
ChelseaBradley Manning getting any stranger — or more poignant. But it did one night in September when the former U.S. Army intelligence analyst, who is serving a 35-year prison term for leaking hundreds of thousands of classified government documents to WikiLeaks, broke down in tears after authorities at the U.S. Disciplinary Barracks at Fort Leavenworth, Kan., told herhim shehe had to cut herhis hair…
“I felt gross — like Frankenstein’s monster wandering around the countryside avoiding angry mobs with torches and pitchforks,”
shehe wrote in a blog post from prison. Feeling “humiliated, hurt and rejected,” shehe felt like “giving up” and said shehe “cried and cried and cried and sniffled a little bit, and then cried some more.”
That sounds like a whole lotta cryin’. Who knew life in military prison was so miserable and unfair?
Nobody forced Bradley Manning to join the Army, and nobody forced him disgrace the uniform. That was his choice. Now he’s getting hormone treatments and women’s underwear and sports bras to wear, on our dime, and he’s suing the government for enforcing the same rules on him as all the other prisoners.
If Manning wants to pretend he’s a girl, that’s his right as an American. If he hadn’t inflicted himself on the U.S. Army and American taxpayers, I’d say he could spend his time and money any way he liked. But that’s not the case. He gave up the right to play dress-up when he betrayed his country. The world is under no obligation to bend itself around his precious widdle feewings.
Tough luck, man.
