Progressives, it is impossible you are this stupid. Okay, so I’m pointing the finger at myself here too, but admittedly I didn’t pay much attention to what Assange was up to at all until he clearly went out of his way to throw the 2016 election. What a piece of shit. Lefty rebel types still argue that he didn’t, to this day. He was just revealing the truth man…in an incredibly calculated way…that only hurt one party. Again, it would seem impossible that people could be this stupid, yet I’ve seen it with my own eyes.
Guy just got busted trying to collude with Sean Hannity last week and oh, shit. What dirt has he dug up on the Republicans in the now over a year since this daily deluge of super insulting bullshit’s been going down? Nothing that I can remember. Well, maybe that would have to do with the fact that he started telling people he was rooting for the dumbest political movement in history all the way back in 2013. No really. (From Forbes):
“The praise for the conservative Paul wing of the Republican Party in the U.S., aligned with Tea Party and anti-government activists, comes on the heels of the establishment of the Wikileaks Party in Australia, where Assange is standing for election to the Senate from Victoria.
Speaking during a live-streamed panel discussion from the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, where he has been given political asylum despite being sought for sexual abuse allegations in Sweden, Assange claimed that the Republicans – and especially the Pauls – don’t represent conservatism, but an opposition to a powerful Federal government that spies on its own citizens.
“The Republican Party in so far as how it has coupled together with the war industry is not a conservative party at all and the Libertarian aspect of the Republican Party is presently the only useful political voice in the US Congress,” he said. That point of view may well set the Wikileaks founder at odds with many of his progressive supporters here in the United States, who while opposing large-scale surveillance like the kind exposed by former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden (now a political refugee in Russia), nonetheless hold social views that are antithetical to hard right Paulist positions on issues like immigration, labor, reproductive rights, and social welfare programs.
Libertarians on the right, claimed Assange, “will be the driver that shifts the United States around.”
“It’s not going to come from the Democrats, it’s not going to come from Ralph Nader, it’s not going to come from the co-opted parts of the Republican Party. The only hope as far as electoral politics… presently, is the libertarian section of the Republican Party.”
Let me rephrase that for you, Julian Assange is one of the dumbest motherfuckers alive. Just in case you were wondering.
