After we all found out the truth, the Obummer administration does not care less and is going full force to lie, spy, disregard other countries privacy and track people whether they know or not. It is disgusting and anti American and a terrorist act to every human on this earth.

Did they all get candle sticks?


Stephen Ledwith 13.10.2013 19:16

Did any body else notice Mr. Snowden receiving the coveted Candle Stick award? Because Award ceremonies are usually held around a round table, by a tight nit community of men who were so busy whistle-blowing to have commissioned a plaque suitable or possibly similar to the awards received before Mr. Snowden. Rushed??

You're a hero and a Patriot Mr. Snowden. Benjamin Tallmadge would be proud. I hope they let you come home one day.

So Fidel you wish for war and destruction on isreal but not iran? You praise putin but condemn American politicians? It is true the government of isreal is as corrupt as any other government is it not? Do you intend to kill every isreali? Force them from the land they now live? Citizens of Earth hear me. It is not any one people who are at fault here. It is our governments. ALL OF THEM that conspire behind our backs. Why do you think portions of this video are not shown? Citizens of Earth unite together under one banner and take your planet back. This is your existence!

Nice to hear Snowden won the Beer Drinking Award.
I've always preferred Leinenkugel's myself, but I guess Sam Adams is okay, too; if that's what you're into.

Long live freedom and justice and equality!
By the way Snowden doesn't say "they’ll stop at nothing to PROSECUTE someone who told them the truth" he says PERSECUTE which is much different, in my opinion. Hopefully someone can fix the transcript as it appears above.

Ie was Samuel Adams who really launched the Boston Tea Party on December 19, 1773. So it stands to reason that to celebrate this Sam Adams Award to Edward Snowden in Moscow, Russia, there should be the dumping of U.S. made goods into a river, and thus make known to the world America's shame of spying on friends and foes alike.

Our thoughts are with you Edward. Thanks for waking the world up.

Hope he watches what he eats & drinks.

Ara fat & Litvinenko didn't respond well to Polonium.


Mortimer Snerd 12.10.2013 13:51

let's hope more people in his line of work take note & participate!

One thing tyranny absolutely hates is insiders spilling their 'dirty secrets' to the simple masses.

Enjoyed the video, and Snowden's speech was excellent. The genuine friendliness, openness and interest shown him was plain to see, and rare too, in the world of Big Brother politics.

All the world loves you, Ed! Your place in history is already wrotten, cause you are a important part of it. Also, best regards to Russia for protecting him.
