Reality Winner? Really?

My job is to read as much news as I can in a day and then make it somewhat more entertaining for my reader(s). Some days are easy, and some days aren’t so easy. And then there’s today, when the top story in America is about a leaker of Top Secret documents who is literally named Reality Winner. I’m not sure yet what sort of day this is.

Chuck “The Boss” Ross reports:

The 25-year-old woman who stole “Top Secret” documents from the National Security Agency and leaked them to The Intercept appears to be a supporter of Bernie Sanders and other progressive icons, such as Bill Maher and Michael Moore.

Reality Leigh Winner’s apparent social media footprint also shows that she is a supporter of other liberal causes, including the Women’s March and the Islamic Society of North America, the Muslim civil rights group…

Winner was indicted in federal court on Monday after she allegedly stole classified documents from her employer, Pluribus International, a defense contractor that does work for the NSA from its offices in Augusta, Ga.

Some say we need to send all the millennials to Gitmo. This is a perfect example of why that’s not such a bad idea. We’ve raised an entire generation of Americans who think that rules and laws don’t apply to them. Unfortunately for this young woman, her name is Reality Winner and not Hillary Clinton, so she’s actually being charged with her very obvious crime.

But, because this is 2017, she will now be lionized by the left. Hell, if they can make a hero out of Bradley Manning, they can make a hero out of anybody. The same people who howled at a county clerk in Kentucky for following her Christian conscience on gay marriage will defend this young lady for following her conscience on their religion. She hates the same people and things they do, so she’s one of them. No enemies on the left.

My advice to young Ms. Winner is to declare that she’s now a man. Make everyone else change their pronoun usage at the drop of a hat. Then, just wait for another Democrat to get elected president and commute her sentence. Go with what works.

She wouldn’t even have to change her name, like Manning did. As we’ve all learned, Reality knows no gender.
