Sweet Jesus, Julian Assange is gone. Where is he? What has he done? He was a journalist, an asylum seeker, now a political prisoner to the UK and ultimately to the US. What about the first amendment? Does that not count anymore?
Are we willing to sell our freedoms to our favorite cult of personality? These freedoms should be immovable, steadfast, and without compromise. These freedoms are what make a democracy, a civilization and a secure future. Take them away and you have fascism for the moment.
We all want the eternal, the true, the perfect but are we willing to pay the price? The price is honesty, integrity and a good a reputation. And so our nation can be if this is what we demand. But if we let racism, homophobia,and greed get in the way we will have nothing but death, alienation and disaster.
Julian has been arrested for reporting war crimes, while the criminals walk free. This is an outrage. Our democracy is upside down. We can’t allow our nation to continue down this path. Even President Obama knew going after Julian Assange would be wrong.
We can’t allow this tyrant in the White House or his Administration to continue down this path. Trump mentioned he wanted to curtail our First Amendment rights when he ran for office. Why? Because has too much to hide and doesn’t like journalists asking questions. We can stand with Julian or we are going to let the powers that be strip our freedoms and our world away from us. You be the judge. And it’s time for you to decide.
