JULIAN ASSANGE Slams “Corrupt” Hillary Clinton in First Interview Following Wikileaks DNC Email Release – The Gateway Pundit
JULIAN ASSANGE: Well, I mean, that’s interesting. We have seen that with a lot of other publications. I guess there’s a question: What does that mean for the U.S. Democratic Party? It is important for there to be examples of accountability. The resignation was an example of that. Now, of course, Hillary Clinton has tried to immediately produce a counter-example by putting out a statement, within hours, saying that Debbie Wasserman Schultz is a great friend, and she’s incorporating her into her campaign, she’s going to be pushing for her re-election to the Congress.
So that’s a very interesting signaling by Hillary Clinton that if you act in a corrupt way that benefits Hillary Clinton, you will be taken care of. Why does she need to put that out? Certainly, it’s not a signal that helps with the public at all. It’s not a signal that helps with unity at the DNC, at the convention. It’s a signal to Hillary Clinton partisans to keep on going on, you’ll be taken care of. But it’s a very destructive signal for a future presidency, because it’s—effectively, it’s expanding the Overton window of corruption. It doesn’t really matter what you do, how you behave; as long as that is going to benefit Hillary Clinton, you’ll be protected.
It has been a remarkable few days. It’s fascinating watching interviews with Clinton and Sanders supporters on the street at the DNC. The former are zombies. They are the end result of the programming we’ve been assaulted with by every channel of the media and social media. Conversely, the Sanders supporters are articulate and awake. Sanders exposed some of the real problems in this country to a group of people that would refuse to listen to the same message from Trump. Now, I detest the solutions that Sanders offered for these problems. But he did at least shed some light on them before sadly endorsing Hillary Clinton in callow fashion. Regardless, he does deserve a lot of credit for waking people up at a time where it is so dearly necessary.
Perhaps most importantly, his constituency has become aware of the importance of a little nationalism. Nationalism is not jingoism and there’s not a damn thing wrong with a little bit of the former.
