Bradley Manning has become the new poster child for the liberal and LGBT community who hail him as a political icon. A former U.S. Army private who sold out his brothers in arms by giving tens of thousands of classified documents to the whistleblower organization Wikileaks.
Manning was convicted of a capital offense, “aiding the enemy.” Imprisoned in 2010 at Leavenworth, he served only seven of his 35-year sentence before Barack Obama commuted the traitor’s sentence on his way out of the White House.
Manning dumped some 700,000 military documents to Wikileaks while he was serving in the United States Military as an intelligence analyst. As The Daily Wire previously reported, Manning’s dump likely got Americans killed:
It remains unclear how many, if any Americans were killed due to the leaks. But Arizona Senator John McCain said in January of 2017 that he’s confident the Taliban used the information and retaliated against those named. McCain told Fox News host Bill O’Reilly he felt “sorrow for the families of those individuals who identified in these leaks in Afghanistan that the Taliban went after and murdered. And rage because this president is basically endorsing a proposal that allows someone to go free who is responsible for the needless deaths of those people who are allies. … Let me be specific. The information I received when I was there was that the Taliban went after these people. I assume, killed them.”
Manning announced that he was a transgender on the same day that he was sentenced, which made him a hero to the Left. He’s been celebrated for posting “bold” selfies on social media, protesting President Donald Trump’s Military transgender ban, and, now, he’s being celebrated on the pages of Vogue.advertisement - story continues below
The article in Vogue describes Manning as if he/she were a sex symbol and reads more like the pages out of a romance novel – it’s nauseating:
“[Manning is] standing, greeting new faces from all sides, thanking, thanking some more. Her left arm is crossed over her belly, cradling her opposite elbow, which is straight. When Beyonce’s “Love on Top” begins its climbing modulations, she uncrosses her arms and begins — mindlessly, flirtatiously — with the charm on her gold necklace, drawing it back and forth between her thumb and forefinger. She sways. She lets herself lean forward, laughing at a joke. When her newest friend wanders away, she turns around and smiles.”
As reported by Yahoo, Manning was photographed by renowned photographer Annie Leibovitz for the spread, in addition to his lengthy profile.
“It’s not like I’m living in fear or anything,” Manning told Vogue. “I’m so glad to be out and about and walking around.”
“Manning said she’s not quite sure how she’ll harness her power yet, and the Vogue story notes she had been interested in running for political office before transitioning,” notes Yahoo.
“I’m certainly not going to say no, and I’m certainly not going to say yes,” said Manning when asked about running for office in the future. “My goal is to use these next six months to figure out where I want to go.”
Manning said he’s currently learning Rust, a programming language, and working on his memoir, The Daily Wire reports.advertisement - story continues below
And he also wants to start dating. “I’m not planning to be single!” he said.
Astoundingly, Manning said he really connects with the values of “responsibility” and “compassion.”
“I have these values that I can connect with: responsibility, compassion,” he said. “Those are really foundational for me. Do and say and be who you are because, no matter what happens, you are loved unconditionally.”
While Vouge’ spouts accolades for Manning and praises him for leaking “the so-called Collateral Murder video, showing a U.S. helicopter killing a group of Baghdad pedestrians that included children and press.”advertisement - story continues below
The video in question does not show the killing of “Baghdad pedestrians” as Vogue purports. It actually shows the lawful targeting of insurgents armed with rifles and a grenade launcher. These so-called “Baghdad pedestrians” actually threatened a U.S. Army unit that suffered one of the highest casualty rates of any unit in Iraq. Vogue perpetuates the myths like so many American enemies and misrepresents the truth for propaganda effect, AFF reports.
The Left has their hypocrisy on in full regalia as they in one breath attack Russian intelligence operations against the U.S. yet in the next breath completely forget just who it was that Manning leaked information to in the first place.
Apparently, Vogue now renders works of fake news.
