Former transgender U.S. Army soldier and verified intelligence leaker, Chelsea Manning, has made public his desire to run for Senate by releasing his campaign tape.
The tape is full of anti-government propaganda which depicts violence and includes clips from the Charlottesville riots, all the while not making any policy proposals whatsoever.
Here is a transcript:
We live in trying times. Times of fear, of suppression, of hate. We don’t need more, or better leaders. We need someone willing to fight. We need to stop asking them to give us our rights. They won’t support us, they won’t compromise. We need to stop expecting that our systems will somehow fix themselves.
We need to actually take the reigns of power from them. We need to challenge them at every level. We need to fix this. We don’t need them anymore. We can do better. You’re damn right we got this.
