Republican Lawmaker: Conservatives Concerned About NSA Snooping Are Acting Like Michael Moore

June 12, 2013 by  

Representative Peter King (R-N.Y.) said during an interview that National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden be prosecuted as well as the U.K. Guardian journalist Glenn Greenwald, an American citizen living overseas who broke the story.

“No right is absolute; even the press has restrictions,” said King, chairman of the House Subcommittee on Counterterrorism and Intelligence.
King also accused Greenwald of threatening to release the names and locations of CIA assets worldwide, compromising national security.

“That to me is a direct attack against Americans, putting American lives at risk,” King said.

The Republican lawmaker also had a message for conservatives concerned about the NSA’s tactics: Stop acting like Michael Moore.

“Too many Republicans and conservatives have become Michael Moores, and I think it’s really dangerous to our country,” he opined.

    Snoden is a hero. Most true Americans will agree. The Government has no right to track our every move. This is not the Soviet Union.

      Not yet and I agree he stood up and informed us but most of us have known that for a long time and now it’s in the light let’s see that’s strike one two or is it three you know what happens then yep your out spy on us take our hard earned money denie the people who really need help we the people get no return on our investment in this country but boy they sure get one hell of a return on theirs our lives our money our blood and our sweat damn when do we get to win when we the people unite last time I checked we are the governments boss so who will be the one to stand up and take the initative and fire them every last one we the people will that’s who all they do is take take and never give back only to the non deserving a man or woman that’s worked hard all their life and even served this country paid into every program out there go and try to get help from one of these programs most don’t qualify and the people working at these act like its coming out of their pockets it might be in about fifty more years but for right now and the last fifty years it’s been coming out of mine just think if we weren’t forced to give the government any of our hard earned money we the people would be able to retire early live a comfortable life spend more time without loved ones and family and put back a comfortable start for our children and grandchildren so that they may have a good happy life you know like these over paid CEOs way over paid politicians and all the wasteful spending we allow this government to do decade after decade we allow them to vote themselves a raise while we the people have to take whatever they dicide we are worth no wonder why we the people can’t achieve lives like that we could but not with all the greed dishonesty lying treason stealing oppression there’s not to many public servants politicians even and up to this president and many before him that have really honored the oath that they swear to uphold and protect our which means we the people’s constitution no just the opposite they do every thing in their power the power we the people gave them to destroy or amend it to death we do all the work spill all the blood sweat all the sweat and they take all the glory where and what would they be without us see they unite but do every thing in their power yes the power we the people granted them to divide us and keep us that way so basically we the people never get above a certain level I just can’t wrap my head around this as being a good prosperous happy life we give everything and get nothing in return except more tyranny and laws can’t forget laws then the people they put out there to enforce these laws don’t even know them they make it up as they go don’t know about the rest of you we the people but I think we the people deserve the good life for awhile let them walk on our shoes for awhile then they might see what it’s like to almost get there and then either corporate America or our government wants to start all over again our government gets cost of living raises every year but we the people are expected to support our families on 8.00 9.00 10.00 dollars an hour and be happy we got that and with all the money they force us to give them they send it overseas do the rest of you we the people
      Know the difference between wright and wrong I’m sure you do and this is way wrong basically our money is extorted from us on lies and false promises I hope our young folks are paying attention but it’s going to be up to us to make it right again people we the people it’s time we unite as one and fix all the broken systems in this country and show the beaurocrats how we the people take care of its own and still be able to balance the budgetand take care of the things our money is supposed to be used for not to line the pockets of politicians foreign diplomats hidden agendas bloated military and yes I served the reason this country is such bad shape is because of all the squandering this government does with other peoples money lets do it people at least the real patriots of this country what if our founders never stood up and said no that’s not how it’s gonna be I don’t even want to imagine sooner or later people you will be forced do or cowar and be forced to do their bidding it we’ve been doing that for over a hundred years we the people or as they like to think of us as peasants or beneath them we have all the power and it doesn’t have to be like this but I guess corporate America and this government were never taught to share well how about we the people school them I’m sure it would be a well deserved lesson not one they would forget none to soon
