Establishment politicians from both major political parties are rushing to defend the NSA and condemn whistleblower Edward Snowden. They are attempting to portray Edward Snowden as a "traitor" and the spooks over at the NSA that are snooping on all of us as "heroes". In fact, many of the exact same politicians that once railed against government spying during the Bush years are now staunchly defending it now that Obama is in the White House. But it isn't just Democrats that are acting shamefully. Large numbers of Republican politicians that love to give speeches about "freedom" and "liberty" are attempting to eviscerate the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The government is not supposed to invade our privacy and investigate us unless there is probable cause to do so. Apparently many of our politicians misunderstood when they read the novel 1984 by George Orwell. It wasn't supposed to be an instruction manual. We should be thanking Edward Snowden for exposing the deep corruption that is eating away at our own government like cancer. Now the American people need to pick up the ball and start demanding answers, because without a doubt we are going to see establishment politicians from both major political parties try to shut this scandal down. Establishment Democrats and establishment Republicans both love the Big Brother surveillance grid that the U.S. government has constructed, and they are both making it abundantly clear that they will defend the NSA to the very end. The following are 22 nauseating quotes from hypocritical establishment politicians that show exactly how they feel about the NSA spying scandal...

#18 Deputy White House press secretary Dana Perino: "The intelligence activities undertaken by the United States government are lawful, necessary and required to protect Americans from terrorist attacks"

#18 is obvious crap because the Russians warned us ahead of the Boston attacks and NOTHING was done. But these retards would have us believe that they are preventing attacks. :rolleyes:

#19 U.S. Senator Saxby Chambliss: "This is nothing new. It has proved meritorious because we have gathered significant information on bad guys and only on bad guys over the years."

Wrong! now even the Americans have found out they have been collecting data on all Americans and the others nations of the world hence, Europe is ****ed!

Guess who else has been collecting massive amounts of data on the American people?

Barack Obama.

This snooping is part of the atmosphere of fear and paranoia that has permeated US society since 9/11. Rather than posting silly rants about different politicians, what people need to do is tackle the root causes, the fear and paranoia that makes it possible. The Bush administration was just as into clandestine surveillance as the Obama administration, most politicians are.

TL;DR

Seriously, post an excerpt and then link to the original article, you know, where they had some sort of formatting on the go.

I've trimmed down the article to abide by Neowin rules.

For the article itself, I'm not too sure what the point is. It doesn't really tell me anything that I didn't already know.

You're not defending him directly what however you are doing is singling out Obama and acting as if he's the only politician guilty of it, which is just as dishonest.
