Felon and LGBT Activist Bradley "Chelsea" Manning Runs for U.S. Senate

Claire Chretien : Jan 16, 2018 : Lifesitenews.com

"Manning has done tremendous damage to America and should be serving the remainder of his prison sentence rather than planning for a run for the U.S. Senate in Maryland." -Lt. Gen. (ret.) Jerry Boykin

(Baltimore, MD)—[Lifesitenews.com] Bradley "Chelsea" Manning, who was convicted of violating U.S. espionage law and received taxpayer-funded "sex change" hormones in military prison, announced that he is running in the Democratic primary for a U.S. Senate seat.

Manning came to fame after leaking over 700,000 secret and/or sensitive U.S. government documents to WikiLeaks. He was court-martialed in 2013 and sentenced to 35 years in prison. Manning began that sentence at the United States Disciplinary Barracks, a military prison in Fort Leavenworth, Kansas before President Obama commuted his sentence in 2017. Obama left office shortly after doing so.

"It is incredibly ironic that a person who has betrayed his country is now considering running for the U.S. Senate, as is the case with [Bradley] Chelsea Manning," Lt. Gen. (ret.) Jerry Boykin, Executive Vice President of the Family Research Council, told LifeSiteNews. "Manning has done tremendous damage to America and should be serving the remainder of his prison sentence rather than planning for a run for the U.S. Senate in Maryland."

Manning filed his statement of candidacy with the Federal Election Committee on January 11. The seat for which he is running is currently occupied by Democrat Sen. Ben Cardin.

Manning will be able to vote for himself because in Maryland, felons post-incarceration may vote.

"Yup, we're running for senate," he posted on Twitter on January 14. He is fundraising through ActBlue, a clearinghouse for liberal fundraising.

Manning's first ad, which watches like a cut of a Black Mirror episode, begins by showing police and protesters clashing. It shows what appears to be some of the border between the U.S. and Mexico, police in riot gear, white supremacists in Charlottesville [etc.]...

"We live in trying times. Times of fear," Manning says as the footage plays. "Of suppression. Of hate."

"We don't need more or better leaders," he declares. "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 reins of power from them."
