With respect to Mr. Snowden, I don’t know that Julian Assange’s seal of approval is going to help his image with John and jane Q. Public.
May I translate: some people seriously don’t know when to shut up.
JPB recently described what Assange is allegedly guilty of as “ungentlemanly conduct” so I’m not entirely sure he’s someone that particularly cares about every opinion of J. Q. Public.
In other words, it appears that JPB doesn’t think Assange raped anyone, correct?
Or are you insinuating that JPB may be pro-sexual assault or something? I hope you clarify yourself, because I think your post is kind of vague in this regard.
Oh, hey, wait, did we have a trial and a conviction while I wasn’t paying attention?
Trial and conviction? Those were the good, old days. Many seem to skip all that “paperwork”. Why have trials when everyone can just assume guilt of others?
The hate rally for Snowdon is going to be bigger and more lavish than Assange, so it won’t make any difference.
Sh…, you may be right.
Depends on which people you talk to, I suppose. The ones that think people are guilty until proven innocent or others that use a little more critical thinking than that.
A 24-country poll found that most people believe WikiLeaks co-founder Julian Assange is not a criminal:
Most Australians back Assange, poll finds:
Maybe most people don’t dislike Assange as much as you’d like them to?
I was hoping when Assange was asked if he had any advice about getting asylum, that he’d say something like “Find an embassy that’s an actual house rather than a few offices.”
Or, “Do a real estate search to see which embassies have jacuzzis.”
I can’t wait to see the Snowden smears. How are they going to top Julian-Assange be Teh Rapebot 5000!
My bets are on http://youtu.be/_etl_qkelX0
