Greenwald: ‘Democratic politics is about criminalizing opposition’

Journalist Glenn Greenwald is criticized the Democratic Party, calling members authoritarians trying to criminalize their opposition. 

After The Prospect managing editor Ryan Cooper complained about Florida GOP Rep. Matt Gaetz not being indicted with in a sex-trafficking probe, Greenwald, co-founder of The Intercept,  responded with his criticism. 

“Chickens*** club,” Cooper tweeted.

Greenwald replied in a retweet: “This is a perfect illustration of how authoritarian so many Democrats are. 

“This Democrat doesn’t know or care why career DOJ prosecutors decided the evidence was insufficient to prosecute Matt Gaetz. What he knows is that Gaetz supports Trump and thus wants him imprisoned:

“I can’t stress this enough: at its core, Democratic politics is about criminalizing opposition to their party and ideology. Dissenting ideas are ‘disinformation’ and must be censored by Big Tech. Trump voters are inherently criminal (‘insurrectionists’) and should be imprisoned.”

He also wrote that October 2021 he and others produced a video to assemble the “mountain of polling data and other quantifiable evidence demonstrating how Democratic Party loyalists and liberal activists are now classic authoritarians.”

Greenwald is now an independent journalist following his departure from The Intercept.
