It would be wrong to revel in someone else’s emotional pain, but at this point, we have to wonder what the atmosphere would be like at Chelsea Manning’s “victory party” on election night — that would make Hillary’s bash at the Javits Center look like Mardi Gras.
its been over a week since ive let everyone who helped me out of prison down, so many of you have helped me thru tough times, i tried too hard to do too much, im sorry im a human being and not a symbol, i have hit rock bottom

OK, we laughed.
As Twitchy reported last week, Manning crashed “A Night for Freedom,” an alt-right event she described in a tweet as a “fascist/white supremacist hate brigade party.” There was quite a backlash from liberals who didn’t buy that Manning was “intel gathering” but hobnobbing, and it seems to have taken its toll.
Either provide actual evidence of this 'Intel gathering' you claim was your purpose for hanging out with alt-righters, text messages, chat logs, any documentation whatsoever that this supposed operation actually existed, or shut the fuck up with your self-pity. https://t.co/WWW7gJOCdk

What?! Let me preface this: I have an incredibly unfavorable opinion of you. And even I think you're caving in to people who have a hateful, dangerous ideology. You went into "enemy" territory and were relatively civil. That doesn't make you a Nazi sympathizer. https://t.co/y5HXUqXiYW

Apparently being found guilty of espionage and going to military prison is not "rock bottom" for Chelsea Manning. https://t.co/nNQFPhamwD

Rock bottom was betraying your country and brothers-in-arms, and showing no remorse. https://t.co/tXOW03BH9P

I think this is supposed to be an apology, but it reads more like self-martyrdom. Whatever the case, I'll maintain the same level of respect for Bradley as he showed our military secrets with which he was entrusted. #Caring https://t.co/E6C0ii6527

Glenn Greenwald’s still in her corner:
Running for Senate, her actions are now 100% fair game. Still, what she's endured – 7 years of brutal prison, abuse by USG found "inhumane" by UN, denial of basic medical & psychological support for her in-prison transition – makes the viciousness of the attacks on her grotesque https://t.co/XWJ2uLWNfs

All good… ya know, just as long as you know you’re not going to be a senator https://t.co/GOAjbeJkov
