COMMENT: While lambasting Bill Maher and others for critical comments about Muslim fundamentalists, Citizen Greenwald was not particularly disturbed by the recent presence of Andrew Auernheimer at a recent social gathering at which he and Laura Poitras were present.
Were this an isolated incident, one might be more inclined to dismiss it as happenstance.
Unfortunately, this fits all too neatly into a pattern with Citizen Greenwald. In an earlier professional incarnation as an attorney, he spent years running legal interference for Nazi murderers. (This is discussed at length in FTR #754 .)
Do note that the article below badly understates Citizen Greenwald’s pro-Nazi activities.
In addition, Wikileaks also tracks back to Nazi and fascist elements. Eddie The Friendly Spook Snowden is part and parcel to the “Paulistinian” milieu. (To flesh out one’s understanding, do check out FTR #755 , about Wikileaks and FTR #756  about the Paulistinian milieu. WikiLeaks and the Paulistinians are inextricably linked with Greenwald and his associates.)
Both Greenwald and Snowden’s political idol Ron Paul have spoken in a similar vein about the shooting of a Canadian soldier in Ottawa.
Although they wax equivocal, both are saying–in effect–that Canada got what it deserved for participating in the air war against ISIS.
Way back in 2010, a so-called “white hat” hacker named Andrew Auernheimer, known online as “Weev,” exploited a security loophole on Apple’s iPad and acquired the names of 114,000 AT&T customers who subscribed to the iPad 3G data service. Following an investigation, Weev, who had “stolen” (his words) the user data was prosecuted and convicted. To his credit, Weev informed AT&T of the security flaw and the company quickly buttoned it up. But back in April of this year, Weev’s conviction was overturned because he was evidently tried in the wrong state (New Jersey). He was subsequently released from Pennsylvania’s Allenwood Federal Correctional Complex on April 11, 2014. The indictment remains, but the conviction no longer stands.
During his time in jail, Weev apparently became a neo-Nazi, complete with a tattoo not unlike Edward Norton’s tattoo in American History X — a giant swastika on his right pectoral. After his release, he posted a series of racist and anti-Semitic remarks on a website called The Daily Stormer , a white-supremacist site not to be confused with The Daily Caller, The Daily Beast or The Daily Banter. Via Gawker , here are some choice passages:
I’ve been a long-time critic of Judaism, black culture, immigration to Western nations, and the media’s constant stream of anti-white propaganda. Judge Wigenton was as black as they come. The prosecutor, Zach Intrater, was a Brooklyn Jew from an old money New York family.[...]
The whole time a yarmulke-covered audience of Jewry stared at me from the pews of the courtroom. My prosecutor invited his whole synagogue to spectate.[...]
They took control of our systems of finance and law. They hyperinflated our currency. They corrupted our daughters and demanded they subject themselves to sex work to feed their families. These are a people that have made themselves a problem in every nation they occupy, including ours. What’s saddest is that we are the enablers of this problem. The Jews abused our compassion to build an empire of wickedness the likes the world has never seen.
No gray area there. Weev clearly hates Jews, African-Americans and anyone he perceives as “anti-white.”
Oh, and in addition to his conversion to the neo-Nazi cause as well as his seemingly prolific online hate speech, Weev attended a party  in New York soon after getting out of jail. The party was held by none other than Glenn Greenwald and Laura Poitras to coincide with the ceremony in which the duo received the Polk Award for their reporting on Edward Snowden and the National Security Agency.
Unless he crashed the party, he was obviously an invited guest. But for a moment let’s assume Greenwald didn’t know Weev was invited. Long before the party, Greenwald had previously defended Weev in The Guardian back in March, 2013, months before the author/reporter rose to international acclaim. Indeed, Greenwald named Weev as a “hacktivist” who was being wrongfully persecuted by U.S. authorities.
Just this week alone, a US federal judge sentenced hactivist Andrew “Weev” Auernheimer to 3 1/2 years in prison for exploiting a flaw in AT&T’s security system that allowed him entrance without any hacking, an act about which Slate’s Justin Peters wrote: “it’s not clear that Auernheimer committed any actual crime”, while Jeff Blagdon at the Verge added: “he cracked no codes, stole no passwords, or in any way ‘broke into’ AT&T’s customer database – something company representatives confirmed during testimony.” But he had a long record of disruptive and sometimes even quite ugly (though legal) online antagonism, so he had to be severely punished with years in prison.
For a moment, let’s set aside the whole neo-Nazi thing. Let’s also not re-litigate the past in which Greenwald, during his law-practice days, defended  a completely different neo-Nazi. The fact that Greenwald continues to blur the line between hacking and activism  is utterly baffling. The manner in which he rationalized Weev’s actions is a gross illustration of gratuitous spin and dangerous oversimplification.
Here’s the Mighty Glenn Greenwald on the Lawrence O’Donnell show, explaining that in his view the attacks in Canada last week were not terrorism — but on the other hand, the US and Canada and Israel (he’s obsessed with Israel) are always committing terrorist acts.
I think that’s a fair description of his viewpoints. See what you think.
. . . . Considering Canada’s peaceful past, the interventionist Canada that has emerged at the end of the Cold War is a genuine disappointment. Who would doubt that today’s Canada would, should a draft be re-instated in the US, send each and every American resister back home to face prison and worse?
As Glenn Greenwald pointed  out this past week:
Canada has spent the last 13 years proclaiming itself a nation at war. It actively participated  in the invasion and occupation of Afghanistan and was an enthusiastic partner  in some of the most extremist War on Terror abuses  perpetrated by the U.S. 
Canada has also enthusiastically joined President Obama’s latest war on Iraq and Syria, pledging to send fighter jets to participate in the bombing of ISIS (and likely many civilians in the process).
But Canada’s wars abroad came back home to Canada last week.
Though horrific, it should not be a complete surprise that Canada found itself hit by blowback last week, as two attacks on Canadian soil left two Canadian military members dead.
Greenwald again points out what few dare to say about the attacks:
Regardless of one’s views on the justifiability of Canada’s lengthy military actions, it’s not the slightest bit surprising or difficult to understand why people who identify with those on the other end of Canadian bombs and bullets would decide to attack the military responsible for that violence.
That is the danger of intervention in other people’s wars thousands of miles away. Those at the other end of foreign bombs – and their surviving family members or anyone who sympathizes with them – have great incentive to seek revenge. This feeling should not be that difficult to understand. . . .
