So, Julian Assange, founder of Wikileaks (yes, I know there can be hardly anyone in the world who does not know what he founded now) has been arrested and incarcerated by British police – no doubt, under the orders of a certain foreign power.
Most of the leaks weren’t that much of a relevation. It was mostly just stuff that most people who can read between the lines had always suspected anyway.
What has come as a revelation though, is the reaction of the US government and the powers-that-be (both right-wing Republican and not-so-right-wing Democrat).
I mean, urgently seeking to arrest someone on trumped-up charges – and, inevitably, getting your own way from vassal/satellite states doesn’t actually look very good, does it? Why, anyone would think we were living in one of those totalitarian states that US leaders are so keen to decry and fashion themselves as the representatives of ‘the land of the free’ against.
And, considering the relatively lightweight ‘secrets’ that have been given away through Wikileaks so far – just what are the US authorities so afraid of?
Pretty much, it seems, judging by the frantic rush to get its founder behind bars, shut up…um…executed even(!)
So, the hey, hey USA must have some horrendous secret, after all? Maybe they roast and eat babies for Thanksgiving??? Erm….or at least something equivalent to that – because, after all, just what is it that they’re so fond of telling us plebs whenever any of us has the temerity to question the need for such stringent, invasive, sexist, racist and classist
gropes checks at airport security….?
IF YOU’VE GOT NOTHING TO HIDE; THEN YOU’VE GOT NOTHING TO FEAR!
