It appears there is a lot of uninformed, ignorant and clues less jones/Hadley listeners here.

Gross.

Assange is obviously prolonging the inevitable given he can’t stay cooped up in the embassy forever.It’s time to come out and face the music for there are and need to be consequences for his actions regardless of whether we on RA think he’s a hero or villain.

The narcissistic creep is not in jail – although perhaps he should be.

As for the extradition/rendition brouhaha, it’s crap. The UK has an extradition treaty with the US, so they could have tried long before any of this happened.

I love how his supporters coughed up thousands of quid for his bail money, because he was such a nice guy and honourable person, and then when he skipped they tried to get their money back. It says it all about both him and his over-entitled fans – the rules are only for the plebs.

I think you’ll find most of his supporters rally because of what he and WikiLeaks do and couldn’t give a rats bum about whether he’s a “nice guy” or even an “honourable person”. From the interviews I’ve heard he doesn’t sound like someone I’d be comfortable having around to dinner, but I think what he does is necessary and moral.

David Hicks? Antisemite and Taliban supporter? What does he have to contribute to the world?

What he does is moral? Yeah right, except in the case where it’s laws or legal authority that applies to him directly, which he then chooses to ignore! While we mightn’t agree with the Swedish rule of law, he has been alleged to have committed a crime under Swedish law and the Swedish authorities want to question him in Sweden. Using the excuse that he can’t go to Sweden because the ‘evil’ Americians want to arrest him is a sign of a cowardly, weak & lame individual and is just plain wrong. In my eyes, until he faces the Swedish authorities, Assange is nothing but a creepy sexual predator.

While I will admit that some of the information Wikileaks released has been worth airing, all the good work has been more than undone by Assange’s personality defects.

Ah yes, the “crime” of embarrassing people in power. Very serious, we can’t have that. Lock them up away from human eyes and torture them.

Embarrassing for the people in Iraq who were informants working for the US and had their names published. I’m sure them and their families just died of embarrassment.

Whistleblowing evidence of US war crimes is good. Giving out the names of those who secretly helped the US is terrible and has probably led to their deaths.

And I seriously doubt that IF he was extradited to the US they’d send him off to be tortured or never to be seen again. Especially given the high profile of the case. He’s not some taliban fighter that no one will care if he disappears.

And do you think a judge presiding over a rape trial should see it that way also? That the work he does is ‘necessary and moral’, and therefore obliged to pardon him?

Assange advocates need to learn separate an institution (Wikileaks) from an individual (Assange).

You may like Wikileaks, but that does not mean it’s founder can break laws that are completely unrelated to effective running of his organisation.

Mate – I know it is tempting to see the world in black and white, but it is lazy thinking. The world is not simply divided into Assange supporters on one side and Ray Hadley/Alan Jones listeners on the other. I, for one, happen to dislike both camps because both Assange supporters and wingnut radio jock audiences share the same traits of lazy thinking and easy stereotyping.

Man-up, face the sexual assault charges. It’s Sweden for God’s sake. You couldn’t ask for a more liberal democracy to face court in.

Clearly someone who fails to grasp the political reality of Sweden’s status as the Scandinavia’s number 1 US lackey state. The US relations with Sweden are an amplified version of our own.

How do you figure that?

Or did you read it on fairgo4rapists.com?

The facts speak for themselves. Check them out here: http://wlcentral.org/node/1418
Assange is also supported by Malcolm Fraser http://wlcentral.org/node/2784.

drfelonious is right. FYI, I have never listened to either Jones or Hadley – don’t even know which stations they are on.

As for Sweden being the US’ “number one lackey”, it seems odd that Assange felt quite comfortable spending quite a bit of time there and using it as party central if that is the case. His presence there was no secret. Only now that he faces questioning – not arrest, just questioning – over alleged sexual offences is he suddenly in fear of his life if he returns.

The 4 Corners program ‘Sex, Lies and Julian Assange’ is also very informative. http://www.abc.net.au/4corners/stories/2012/07/19/3549280.htm

Indeed – as is his wont, he was partying with politicians and jetsetters in Sweden as a leftie celebrity.

If all they want to do is question, then why not via video link?
