The violations done to Julian Assange, including human rights abuse, illegal detainment, torture and the persecution of this man, are simply an abuse of power and an example of government overreach. It should be illegal to extradite a journalist/publisher for doing his job correctly. Assange should not be tried under the Espionage Act. First of all, he received his documents from a whistleblower. Secondly, by law, you cannot put press freedom on trial. It is against the Constitution.
The U.S. has become so powerful it is no longer a republic but a tyrannical superpower that may be larger than the Roman Empire. It certainly has more reach around the world. In fact, according to nationalpriorities.org:
Ask yourself why is this necessary? Why is it necessary for a supposed republic to spend that much?
@Underground_RT shared this in a tweet today:
What the US can afford:
-$32 million an hour on war since 9/11
-800+ military bases in 80+ countries
-$717 billion on the military every year
-Medicare for All
-Green New Deal
-Rebuilding D+ infrastructure
What happens when Americans wake up?
32 million dollars an hour. That staristic alone should show you that the United States government wants world domination on it’s citizens’ tax dollar. Not only that, but think of the war crimes committed on that money. I doubt Assange exposed half of it. Yet, the U.S. is going after one man for showing the world how corrupt and evil they really are. What are they afraid of? That American citizens might hold them accountable for the criminals they are?
Every penny of the IMF loan given to Ecuador to get Assange was tax payer money. Why aren’t the people of the U.S. outraged? We the people just paid for the biggest, most expensive case of human-trafficking in the history of the world!
What really upsets me are the people saying Assange should be brought here for his information. Folks, if you believe this you have been successfully brainwashed by propaganda. Republicans seem to believe Assange can take down the DNC. Did you ever think he might have info on your beloved god Trump? Maybe he has nothing useful. To take down fellow Americans you would sacrifice one of the greatest geniuses of our time because of your hatred. To me, this is unreal.
As long as we are divided,our fates are decided. They want hatred amongst us. The more we hate eachother the more corrupt bullshit they get away with. The more they have you believing their lies, the more enslaved you become. Wake up! Think! What has hatred ever accomplished?
It is going to take a huge movement to save Assange from this superpower devouring him and press freedom at the same time. Do you really think this doesn’t affect you? Reality check! This is the beginning of the end of your freedom if you allow them to prosecute and destroy Assange. This is not the time to remain complacent or passive. The time to act is now!
