“Julian has been indicted for receiving, possessing and communicating information to the public of evidence of war crimes committed by the U.S. government,” his wife, Stella Assange, said. “Reporting a crime is never a crime.”

    Working with the russians at Russian Today (a known propagandist channel) is not a crime, but it shows everything you need to know about Assange.

    Assange is a piece of shit hypocrite. He was more into the aesthetic qualities of being an “anti-US contrarian” as opposed to a journalist (real journalists don’t work at Russia Today) or a human rights activist (Assange definitely doesn’t care about the millions whose lives were ruined by the russians).

      If assange wanted everyones support, he shouldnt have made his outlet so crazily right wing.

      It started out more neutral, but when you do things like not release the RNC emails after releasing DNC emails, then youre agenda is clear and youre not the “pure source of information” or whatever he thought he was

        Well, to be fair, his biggest leak was probably about the Iraq war, which was an RNC adventure. Though as time went on, it did seem that he started to align with Kremlin social media campaigns.

        It’s impossible to tell if this was because he always was working with them as sources or if he was driven to Russia as an out due to being hunted by the west.

        What does this even mean?

        My country is being invaded by the russians for 10 years now, the vast majority of them are genocidal imperialists. Why should I care about them?

    Assange doesn’t care about victims of US imperialism. It’s all grandstanding and attempts to manipulate useful idiot types. He didn’t even bother to remove PII of people under risk during his “disclosures”.

    US does a lot of bad things, but they are not fundamentally evil.

    Everything done by the Russians has always been about killing, torture and genocide.

    Show me one example of russians doing something positive. Even WW2 that they fetishize, they originally collaborated with the Nazis to split up Europe.

      As an American I will say that we are a fundamentally evil country. Our people are mostly not evil, but our governmental system does immeasurable evil to people in this country and across the world.

        You don’t know what you are talking about.

        How many languages do you speak? Which countries have you lived in and for how long?

        Can you name 5 bullet points about russian history in the 20th century?

        Provide one example of Russia’s positive contribution in the global sphere. Three example w.r.t. USA are Japan, Germany and South Korea.

            No, the US gov is not fundamentally evil.

            They definitely do bad things, but not every single action of the US is bad.

            Every action (every single one) done by the russians is evil.

              That is an overly simplistic view. Russian government has done good things, It funds healthcare for it’s citizens.

              Now don’t get me wrong Russian government is fundamentally evil. But governments are much too complex to only do good or evil things. Every single government has done both many good and evil things.

                I was referring to broader geopolitics. Specifically leadership by US in Germany, Japan and South Korea are strong success stories. Can you provide a similar example for russia?

                What do you know about the evolution of healthcare under putin in the last 25 years? Can you make a factual statement about the evolution of russian healthcare without searching? Or is this a sophomoric attempt at rhetoric?

      I would suggest to do your own research and look into independent sources.

      This are just smears and propaganda used against him, by the duopoly and legacy media, so as to make him look like the bogeyman.

      The reason the US is going after him is because he exposed them as war criminals. Everything else is secondary to them.

      The US is a war criminal state and likes to act like the world police. This must end. Whistleblowers should be protected from the US, not punished by and shipped off to it on demand.

      There was one time, not long ago, when Trump couldve released him.

      But as the rest, what he did, Trum did shit.
