Care to see something that will turn your stomach? Metafilter wishes Chelsea Manning a happy birthday, and calls him a "hero". (And a "patriot".)
(OK, to cases: Manning's name has been legally changed. Manning's sex has not been. But God help you if you use "he" or "him" to refer to Manning on Metafilter; the TransLiberationFront will swarm you.)
I was thoroughly disgusted and posted this:
I can't believe this post. Manning is a traitor and should have met a hangman's noose.
As you might imagine, it was deleted by the mods.
The liberals at Metafilter, like all American liberals, pride themselves on being tolerant and inclusive. In practice, what that means is they tolerate you if you agree with them, otherwise not. I mostly ignore hot-button political threads, but this one I couldn't let go by, even though I knew my comment wasn't going to survive.
At Metafilter, anyone who hates the US and does something that damages it is a hero. (They idolize Snowden, too.) I shouldn't let it get to me, but once in a while it's just too much.

Chelsea Manning is a dick. I can say that in all political correctness, right?

Speaking of other traitors (And interestingly, one of the agents of the DGI sitting in the federal prison system who Obama did not trade away - yet - to Cuba.):
