A hateful little man

Julian Assange is a nasty, hateful, little man. Nick Cohen in the Observer notes the inherent evilness of Julian Assange:

“A reporter worried that Assange would risk killing Afghans who had co-operated with American forces if he put US secrets online without taking the basic precaution of removing their names. “Well, they’re informants,” Assange replied. “So, if they get killed, they’ve got it coming to them. They deserve it.” A silence fell on the table as the reporters realised that the man the gullible hailed as the pioneer of a new age of transparency was willing to hand death lists to psychopaths.”

I said at?the?time if Wikileaks that people would die as a result. Julian Assange probably has blood on his hands.

In Ethiopia, however, Assange has already claimed his first scalp.?Argaw Ashine fled the country last week after WikiLeaks revealed that the reporter had spoken to an official from the American embassy in Addis Ababa about the regime’s plans to intimidate the independent press. WikiLeaks also revealed that a government official told Arshine about the planned assault on opposition journalists. Thus Assange and his colleagues not only endangered the journalist. They tipped off the cops that he had a source in the state apparatus.

Wikileaks tipped off Police! Not only that but the police of a corrupt dictatorship.

Once we have repeated Orwell’s line that “so much of leftwing thought is a kind of playing with fire by people who don’t even know that fire is hot”, there is work to do. First, there needs to be relentless pressure on the socialist socialites and haggard soixante-huitards who cheered Assange on. Bianca Jagger, Jemima Khan, John Pilger, Ken Loach and their like are fond of the egotistical slogan “not in my name.” They are well-heeled and well-padded men and women who know no fear in their lives. Yet they are happy to let their names be used by Assange as he brings fear into the lives of others.

I’ll start?the?cause here in New Zealand by naming one Martyn Bradbury as one of those who cheered on Julian Assange, and Malcolm Harbrow. While we are compiling names at in too Keith Locke and John Minto. Liberty Scott comments on these guys and Martyn Bradbury in particular.

Some are empty heads, others are typical left wing no thinkers.? However, it’s hard to beat Bomber for the utterings of hyperbolic vacuity:

“Assange and wikileaks will be seen as a threat that needs utter annihilation because he disrupts the balance of power in a way no person ever has“.

Bomber’s an idiot, but Assange is a vile evil little prick who revels in his celebrity status, whose kiddi-socialism has gained him lots of sycophantic followers with similar levels of adolescent simplicity in their beliefs.?? The types that attack the West, while living in it, because they like to be rebels, they want to believe that politicians don’t tell you everything, that there are grand conspiracies between business, government and media to make sure you don’t know the truth.? They ignore real dictatorships because that’s not counter-establishment enough, after all the US, Europe and other Western countries already oppose Syria, Belarus, North Korea and the Taliban.
