Assange scoffed at the latter point before saying that both candidates are “terrible” and that Clinton is trying to re-frame negative coverage about herself. He continued to deny having a preferred candidate while saying that Clinton was “whipping up a neo-McCarthyist hysteria about Russia” that is yet another reason for reporters to hold her accountable.
“What kind of press environment is this going to lead to post-election” Assange wondered. “The American liberal press, in falling over themselves to defend Hillary Clinton, are erecting a demon that is going to put nooses around everyone’s necks as soon as she wins the election, which is almost certainly what she’s going to do.”
Which leads me to ask: What’s the Liberal rationale for Assange’s words? After rending the Bush administration for 7 years, did Assange suddenly become a hardcore Republican? Or is HE now a Russian agent too just like Trump? Seriously, how exactly are we choosing to disregard this man’s words?
If you’re going to vote for Hillary Clinton, you’re one of two things:
- An ignorant moron that couldn’t be bothered to spend just a modicum of time researching what this woman has been doing.
- An evil fucking human being.
There’s no option 3. If you want war, vote for Hillary. If you want a police state, vote for Hillary. If you want abject misery and poverty for the lower and middle classes of this country, those people you Liberals care soooooooo much about, vote for Hillary.
Now, I realize that most of you out there reading this are most likely good, decent people with common sense, empathy and critical thinking skills. You also most likely have a sense of decorum and that means not talking about politics with friends and family members.
Except now you have to. I talked to my best friend last night at length about the presidential race. It was clear from the conversation that he’s not aware of Hillary’s crimes and his impression of Trump closely resembles the caricature that the media has created.
You have to talk to people. Be armed with the facts. Make them feel foolish about not being informed. Use calm, logical arguments and counter arguments. Most importantly, motivate them to start researching on their own. No informed voter would vote for this woman. At least not a sane one.
Talk to your family and friends. Wake them the fuck up.
