I’ve been following the Julian Assange story of late and cannot BE-LIEVE the media backlash against anyone who voices support for Mr. Assange or who voices skepticism that this case is really about allegations of sexual assault.
If you have any questions about this history or series of events that has led up to Julian Assange seeking diplomatic immunity in the Ecuadorian embassy, then I highly recommend that you listen to the Majority Report podcast on the Wikileaks scandal. It’s fascinating and very troubling.
The Obama administration’s persecution against whistleblowers is extraordianary. From The Guardian:
“This is how the GAP’s Jesselyn Raddack – herself a former whistleblower at the DoJ – put it: “While the Bush administration treated whistleblowers unmercifully, the Obama administration has been far worse. It is actually prosecuting them,” she wrote recently.”
So far, six whistleblowers have been charged under the Espionage Act, a draconian law that was put in place during WWI but was rarely enacted.
I swear to God I think the United States Government — and Mr. Obama himself — is preparing us all for the coming police state where we will be pulverized for dissent.
