The Trump administration thinks that “talking tough” is going to somehow squash Julian Assange and keep him from leaking more government secrets. In fact, they haven’t laid out a case for dealing with the Wikileaks founder, but some writers now want to follow in Barack Obama’s footsteps, and drone him – without trial – with the sole goal of keeping him quiet.
We could start with the massive human rights and constitutional violations in that oh-so-simple-plan. But it seems too obvious. Whether one likes what Assange releases or not, shouldn’t make a difference. The truth is still the truth and it doesn’t change simply because you drone its messenger.
Directly on the heels of the news of Chelsea Manning recently being released from prison, truth-haters have now set their sights on Julian Assange. It seems that political and government apologists are now all too eager to drone the man responsible for publishing the truth for the American public. Oddly enough, it’s not the government (right now), but knuckledraggers who insist on death because they don’t like the truth that are the problem. It appears that once Americans put on their red or blue goggles, they decide which truths they want to be released and which truths should be punishable by drone death.
