Greenwald is repulsed by Democrats for throwing around the woman card to deflect from news that former Federal Reserve chair Janet Yellen received millions of dollars from corporations to give speeches after departing from her position as the nation's top central banker. Yellen is "president-elect" Joe Biden's choice to return as Fed chair.
He pointed out the rank hypocrisy in the attacks:
Greenwald explained how Democrats cynically use diversity as a cudgel to neutralize criticisms about how they have become the corporatist party:
The far-left journalist encouraged his fellow activists to reject these disgusting ploys and agitate against corporatism among the Democrat ranks:
Big League Politics has reported on the liberation of Greenwald ever since he resigned from The Intercept after being censored on his own outlet:
Left-wing journalist Glenn Greenwald announced on Thursday that he will depart from The Intercept, the publication he co-founded to publish news outside of the fake news media-industrial complex, because the organization has transformed into everything they were founded to oppose.
Greenwald published the rationale behind his departure on Substack, explaining how his writing critical to Democrat presidential contender Joe Biden was censored by the outlet.
"The final, precipitating cause is that The Intercept's editors, in violation of my contractual right of editorial freedom, censored an article I wrote this week, refusing to publish it unless I remove all sections critical of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, the candidate vehemently supported by all New-York-based Intercept editors involved in this effort at suppression," he said.
"The censored article, based on recently revealed emails and witness testimony, raised critical questions about Biden’s conduct. Not content to simply prevent publication of this article at the media outlet I co-founded, these Intercept editors also demanded that I refrain from exercising a separate contractual right to publish this article with any other publication," Greenwald added.
Greenwald explained that he could not stay with The Intercept since they had violated journalistic ethics to shill for Biden.
"As of now, I will be publishing my journalism here on Substack, where numerous other journalists, including my good friend, the great intrepid reporter Matt Taibbi, have come in order to practice journalism free of the increasingly repressive climate that is engulfing national mainstream media outlets across the country," Greenwald wrote.
"This was not an easy choice: I am voluntarily sacrificing the support of a large institution and guaranteed salary in exchange for nothing other than a belief that there are enough people who believe in the virtues of independent journalism and the need for free discourse who will be willing to support my work by subscribing," he added.
To his great credit, Greenwald never succumbed to Trump Derangement Syndrome like so many of his liberal journo counterparts.
