So Fox News, the place where most Americans get what passes for information, has now aligned itself with terrorists.
In this clip, two fools are calling for special forces to kill Julian Assange because, among other things, “he’s a traitor”. It seems to have escaped their attention that Assange is Australian.
Wikileaks has been working in partnership with several world-respected newspapers to verify the accuracy of the leaks, including The Guardian, the New York Times and der Spiegel. Since Fox News believes Assange should be killed, they should be consistent and demand the execution of the newspaper editors as well. Shouldn’t they? As one of the talking heads pointed out, every night in Afghanistan special forces are taking out “enemies of America”. It doesn’t seem to cross the mind of these boneheads that there’s a very good reason why the Taliban in Afghanistan are enemies of America. You fucking invaded them, idiot. Do you expect them to love America? And did you forget that you created the fucking Taliban in the first place when you wanted to piss off the Russians?
And why stop there? Why not kill every bond trader who damages US financial interests? Every athlete who might beat them in the Olympics. Why not kill everyone who disagrees with Sarah Palin? Execute all atheists.
Why not? That’s the direction they’re heading.
Meanwhile, the rape case becomes more and more absurd. Naomi Wolfe wrote an excellent piece on it for the Huffington Post. The article, entitled , Julian Assange Captured by World’s Dating Police, is scathing of Wolf’s feminist sisters: I am also pleased that the alleged victims are using feminist-inspired rhetoric and law to assuage what appears to be personal injured feelings.
That seems to sum it up. Feminism is all very well until you have sex with a famous guy and then find out you weren’t the only one. After that, it’s back to tears and name-calling. As Wolf puts it, thank you again, Interpol. I know you will now prioritize the global manhunt for 1.3 million guys I have heard similar complaints about personally in the US alone.
Not to mention those one or two women who haven’t been entirely open about their dalliances.
I don’t believe in the conspiracy that some people claim is behind the arrest of Assange. I don’t think it was some kind of set-up, but I do think that the US and Britain seized on the opportunity when these women decided to get revenge on Assange for two-timing them. As somebody said, if it happened in China, the same Fox News idiots would be calling him a dissident.
It’s absurd, and futile at the same time. It just shows that Calvinism is never too far below the surface in Sweden, but even if the tolerant, civilised Swedish sex police manage to put Assange away for years, it will make no difference. Wikileaks will still be there in one form or another. As long as people are willing to leak information, somebody will publish it.
Now. I wonder who the editors of the Guardian, the New York Times and Der Spiegel have been shagging?
