Snowden: Whistleblower or Traitor
Well the latest results are in and they confirm what I have suspected for a while now: the majority of Americans that do not work for the government are idiots.
This is based on a poll released today showing that only 34% of Americans consider Edward Snowden a traitor.
Well let me be the first to report that 100% of American patriots know that Snowden is a traitor (and a kook).
Now I wasn’t polled so I don’t know exactly how this poll question was phrased, but I suspect there was some confusion as to what a traitor is. Let me and Merriam-Webster be of assistance:
1: one who betrays another’s trust or is false to an obligation or duty
2: one who commits treason
The Obama administration has charged Snowden with two counts for violating the Espionage Act. This is pretty simple America. Again, let me and Merriam-Webster be of assistance:
: the practice of spying or using spies to obtain information about the plans and activities especially of a foreign government or a competing company
In other words: aiding the enemy.
So by obtaining and then leaking information from the NSA, Snowden has undoubtedly committed espionage. He has told the American public what their own government is doing to spy on them.
How is this aiding the enemy? Well look at the poll results: only 34% of Americans think Snowden is a traitor. Therefore, 66% of Americans are kooks. Therefore, 66% of Americans are the enemy. Logic.
Trust your government. Trust the NSA. If you have nothing to hide, then you have nothing to fear.
