Leftist Hero Julian Assange Compares Wikileaks to US Founding Fathers
Of course, we all know if a Republican was sitting in the White House right now the fact that we just suffered the greatest classified data breach in history would be more of a story. Instead, since the community organizer is in charge, the treasonous founder of Wikileaks is treated with respect by our far left media.
“60 Minutes” calls the traitor Assange the “controversial” founder of Wkileaks.
Assange compared himself to the Founding Fathers.
The Telegraph reported:
In a CBS interview with 60 Minutes aired on Sunday night Mr Assange, who is currently under US criminal investigation over the leaking of hundreds of thousands of secret military reports and diplomatic cables, also denied that he was motivated by a dislike of America.
“Our founding values are those of the US revolution,” Mr Assange told Steve Kroft. “They are those of people like [Thomas] Jefferson and [James] Madison,” he added.
Mr Assange, 39, described members of Wikileaks as “free press activists” and said the website did not have a political agenda.
“It’s not about saving the whales. It’s about giving people the information they need to support whaling or not support whaling,” the Australian said.
“That is the raw ingredient that is needed to make a just and civil society. And without that you’re just sailing in the dark.”
Benedict Arnold would be a more appropriate comparison.
What a disgusting man.
