Enemy of the people
I find it quite incredible that the seemingly common view held by fellow commentards here is that Julian Assange is some kind of boogey man, not worthy of being protected from powerful, long established power structures.
Is it willful ignorance that his organisation helped facilitate the revealing of war crimes by the USA?
Do you actually believe he is some kind of sex predator, going around raping women?
Maybe he also had sex with an alien shrimp, as depicted in that film District 9, the media are happy to oblige as long as there is money being paid
If I can offer you all some advice.
Try thinking for yourselves
Take for example the media salivating over the death of Alan Kurdi, because it fitted in with their narrative, but completely ignored all of the "Alan Kurdi's" murdered in the Iraq war, the Afghanistan war, the Libya war, (insert any number of wars the USA has been involved with either directly, or via some proxy puppet)
I thought El Reg was where the intelligent people go, perhaps I am mistaken
