John Kerry: Snowden Is Not A Patriot

Please listen to how John Kerry responded to a statement from Edward Snowden on why he is in Russia.

…Well, for a supposedly smart guy that’s a pretty dumb answer frankly. Look, I’m not going to get into the who he was, what he was, let me just say this: if mister Snowden wants to come back to the United States today, will have him on a flight today. We’d be delighted for him to come back. And he should come back and, and that’s what a patriot would do. A patriot would not run away and look for refuge in Russia, Cuba or some other country. A patriot would stand up in the United States and make his case to the american people. But he’s refused to do that, to this date at least. The fact is that, you know he could come home but he’s a fugitive from justice which is why is not being permitted to fly around the world. It’s that simple and he knows it.

…Let him come back and make his case. The fact is that, you know if he would care so much about America and he believes in America, he should believe in the American system of justice. But to be hiding in Russia, an authoritarian country, and to have just admitted that he was really trying to get to Cuba, I mean what does that tell you, really? I think he’s confused, I think it’s very sad. But this is a man who has done great damage to his country, violated his oath, which he took when he became an employee, and yes in fact stole an enormous amount of information and released it to the public to the detriment of this country.

These bunch of lies reminded me about what Hermann Göring has said in 1946. For the ones that don’t know Göring, during the second world war he was the Commander-in-Chief of the German Luftwaffe, President of the Reichstag, Prime Minister of Prussia and, as Hitler’s designated successor, the second man in the Third Reich. When the war was over  the allied appointed prison psychologist Gustave Gilbert had conversations with Göring and other Nazi leaders during the Nuremberg Trials. From these conversations, and essays the Nazi leaders wrote about themselves, Gilbert published a book; Nuremberg Diary. From Hermann Göring, 1946:

Naturally the common people don’t want war; neither in Russia, nor in England, nor in America, nor in Germany. That is understood. But after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country.

For Kerry to play the patriot card, is just a very old trick to influence the minds of the people. The American war on terror is of course derived from the same playbook: “All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked… It works the same in any country”.

    John Kerry is not a patriot…He,s a globalist…..

    According to Kerry it was a crime to reveal to the tax paying US population that their government was spying on them using their own tax dollars. Time to put corporate/fascist stooges like Kerry on trial for subversion of constitutional rights.

    I was suspicious of Snowden from the beginning because true whistleblowers don’t get aired on prime time tv to express their views, like Snowden did in the UK. Then there’s the fact he chose Greenwald to send data to, Greenwald’s business partner founded paypal and has close ties to all the wrong people in the status quo, deep state of the US.
    Then of course there’s the type of data Snowden leaked, which he saye he got access to by tricking acolleague into letting him use his access ID. Nobody noticed while he downloaded mountains of data either.
    Sorry, far too many problems with that story for me. Add to it the publicity he’s getting in the US and there’s no way he’s legit. His role is to let the world know the NSA is watching them, so now we all know we live in a fishbowl. Mission accomplished, and the US/NSA couldn’t care less if you don’t like it.

      Every story has a flip-side. But why would the NSA want the world to know they’re monitoring them? (China is replacing all US routers by Chinese versions, other countries making similar steps). Why would they prefer Merkel to know they tapped her phone? Why would they want the world to become even more anti-US?

        Because they are terrified of the crypto currencies.
        They want you to believe that they know about and control every digital asset so that you are afraid of using them.

        • Michael Yates

          I don’t think they’re terrified of crypto currencies. Any currency with an artificial limit, and that can be produced infinitely for no cost is a currency they like.

          • Mark Ouwehand

            Michael, interesting views. You think the elite will be able to “control” bitcoin, or will it be a tool for us to break free from inflation?

      • Michael Yates

        Have you read Orwell’s 1984? It’s about intimidation, control, and dominance. In reality, the NSA can record every word said but they can’t monitor every word said. They would like you to believe they can though, so you are intimidated.
        as for anti-US sentiment, it’s only the citizens, as every US ally is participating with the NSA.
        Leaders do what they do best, lie and put on a show of how they agree with the people, but notice how that’s pretty much over and nothing changed. The elites understand the masses have short memories, will get whipped up for a while, but then get acclimated to the new normal.
        Been going on for centuries.

    Nothing is quite as hilarious as a marxist Vietnam war protestor like Kerry pretending to be an American super-patriot.

  • Chris Marcus

    When is Kerry going to finally tell everyone about that evidence he kept claiming he had that it was Assad that used the chemical weapons and not the CIA or another one of Kerry’s goon squads?

    At least for me I’d rather he just shut his mouth until then. His actions hurt and kill a lot of people, and my guess is the reason he feels Snowden is a traitor is because he’s worried that people might find out about some of the other things Kerry’s been up to.

  • hambone

    Yes, Snowden should come back to America and be a patriot like Mr. Kerry lying to his countrymen for the benefit of his tiny group of international employers…as an American, Mr. Kerry’s take on patriotism is sickening and saddening…but entirely predictable.

    The evidence of the financial corruption, political fraud, and economic lies is all there…only problem is America doesn’t care…they are resigned to their fate.

  • guest

    Mr Kerry: the fact he doesn’t come back is because he does not trust the “Just Us” system…. you know the system whereby only the “laws” that your business partners pass are use against the population and the ones who are referred as “leaders”( really public servants originally) get an entirely set of rules and laws- mainly anything goes. We as real Americans -not Neo -Fascist in drag, agree and feel the same way about YOU people as well and that you are not to trusted.
    The fact he is revealing corruption and illegality within the government should be applauded. Instead he was blamed and vilified for revealing it- which show all of us your intent… that YOU don’t believe in the rule of law….that YOU have an agenda of protecting your self proclaimed status as one of the”officials” who has ultimate authority over the American people not the other way around and that YOU will not respect the opinion of the American people or the concept of a free society regarding this matter or in general- for if you did… YOU would be applauding Snowdin not threatening him.
