The headline says it all.

Former military analyst Bradley Manning, the American traitor who refers to himself as “Chelsea,” claims that living in the United States is equivalent to being locked in a military prison.

No joke.

She He actually said that.

From Breitbart:

Convicted intelligence leaker Chelsea Manning told an audience in the United Kingdom on Monday that life in the United States is just like serving time in a military prison.

Manning spoke before an audience gathered at the Royal Institution in London, criticizing the Trump administration and the “surveillance systems, cameras, and police presence” that have made the U.S. less free, the Guardian reported.

“This whole notion that you get out of prison and you are free now turned out to be a bit of a downer in that sense,” Manning said Monday. “Because what happened, we really built this large, big prison, which is the United States, in the meantime–it was already happening, it just really intensified.”

More from Guardian:

While in prison, Manning underwent gender transition, and she has spoken openly on trans rights issues in the past. When asked about the lack of NHS support for transgender people in England, she advised people to set up crowdfunding pages if they could not get assistance through the health system.

“Somehow I often find myself having to debate my own existence with people. I don’t have the long-term solution, but it comes back to what local activists are doing,” she said.

During the interview, Manning was asked whether she regretted leaking the documents to WikiLeaks. “If I had done anything differently it would have been a completely different person,” she said.

Manning is the main guest at an Institute of Contemporary Arts dinner being held in her honour. She was invited to attend the event by Stefan Kalmár, who was appointed as director of the ICA in London in 2016. He came to the institute from Artists Space in New York and has been described as a “true innovator”.

Manning lost her his Senate primary bid in a landslide, per Al.com:

Convicted leaker Chelsea Manning was soundly defeated in the Democratic primary for the Maryland Senate seat.

Incumbent Democratic Senator Ben Cardin received 450,890 votes – just over 80 percent of those cast – compared to Manning’s 32,201, or 5.7 percent. Cardin faces Republican Tony Campbell in the November general election. Campbell won a close GOP primary, receiving 29 percent of the vote, or 49,428 votes.

Manning, 30, entered the race in January in a bid to become the first transgender member of Congress. Then known as Bradley Manning, the former military analyst was convicted in 2013 of supplying thousands of documents to anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks. She was originally sentenced to 35 years in prison, serving seven years before President Barack Obama commuted the remainder.

Thank you, Maryland.
