Word For The Day, Wednesday, July 10, 2013-- quisling

;


In order that we might all raise the level of discourse and expand our language abilities, here is the daily post of "Word for the Day".

quisling [kwiz-ling]

hear it pronounced

noun

a person who betrays his or her own country by aiding an invading enemy, often serving later in a puppet government; fifth columnist.

Origin: 1940; after Vidkun Quisling (1887–1945), pro-Nazi Norwegian leader

Rules: Everyone must leave a post using the Word for the Day in a sentence.
The sentence must, in some way, relate to the news of the day.




TOPICS: Word For The Day
KEYWORDS: wordfortheday
Vidkun Quisling’s name became synonymous with “collaborator,” just as a “Lewinsky” became a euphemism for an act that, according to Bill Clinton, is not sex. It would not surprise me if a well-written, honest history of the present era uses “Obama” as a verb that means “to turn the greatest country in the world into a socialist banana republic.”

Ed Snowden is a quisling, or plays one on TV.

There is something weird about his whole story.

Although I my working theory is he’s an idealistic guy who got in over his head. Note to self: Never let the wikileaks people plan your travel itinerary.

There is also something weird about the way his story has been reported. Such as, how many times has he been tagged as a "high school drop out"? Then we find out that he left high school early because he'd already fulfilled all the requirements and entered college early. Suddenly he went from being a dumb a$$ to being a smart cookie. I wonder where the truch lies?

The drop out meme was stupid. He wouldn’t have pulled the kind of salray he did if he was a dummie.

That meme was pushed by politicians (evil) and by journalists (lazy).

But in someways I think it just all looks too staged, like something out of central casting.

It is curious that he left a job paying $200k and took a job paying $100k for the access to NSA files unless he had nefarious plans in the back of his mind.

I liked the tweet that said he could always go back to his job as model for Lenscrafters.

LOL. He totally looks like the computer geek you’d expect to see in the movie made about this. Which is part of what seems odd to me.

Because my husband and I lived in Berkeley during the 1960s and were associated with the University (as students) and my husband with the Radiation Lab (as an employee) an old friend of my husband’s sent us the book “Subversives” by Seth Rosenfeld.

The book is based on FBI files that the author spent 27 years getting through FOIA requests. I thought I was pretty aware of what was going on in Bezerkley at the time we llived there, but I had NO IDEA.

I’ve just started this fascinating read, and I do not know where it is going; but I was surprised in the first pages to find that the (then) president of the University (Clark Kerr) had been under FBI surveillance for years. And that Ronald Reagan had an ongoing pact with J. Edgar Hoover dating to Reagan’s early Hollywood days.

So, who knows what Ed Snowden was really doing? And what our government knew about him?

In some places, it’s raining and drizzling
While in others, quite sunny & sizzling.
This is normal each year,
But we’re told we should fear
That it’s OUR doing, sayeth the Quisling.

I, for one, am outraged. I wrote this earlier.

I agree with your theory about Snowden-in WAY over his head. It may be that he was tipped off early on by someone that he was about to be grabbed and hauled in to be used as the latest scandal distraction-so he bolted before he was ready, and wikileaks and Vlad got their claws into him...

It’s a good day for shadenfreude
And expressions of our disgust
Obamascare has begun imploding
And the IRS is choking on dust

One quisling outing some others
Is never a thing that’s bad-
I just hope they keep talking
Like someone who has run mad

You screwed up and trusted us
Is the message the emperor sends-
If he reads a bit about Nixon
He may see where this stuff ends...

I hope someone in Congress is reading this. We know Obama is.

Thank you! Nixon thought he couldn’t get caught-Obama-another lawyer- probably thinks the same. It is the ego that brings guys like that down...

I’m not going to use “quisling” in a sentence because there are too many very good candidates for that epithet out there!

That especially applies to those who sell us out to the muslim Brotherhood, and to islam in general!!!

You’re assuming he can read anything that isn’t on a teleprompter. I’m not convinced of that.
