Seen here: the alleged rapist in his natural habitat.

Hi there, Wonkers! You may remember me from all the posts I did about restaurants. Well, did you know I also have a twitter and was recently threatened for libel by a certain (MAYBE!) Russian propaganda front? It’s true!

It all started when I went on Twitter (as you do) and saw WikiLeaks being EXTREMELY butt-hurt about the “illegality” of the Obama administration supposedly leaking information to NBC News. Since WikiLeaks is an organization specifically dedicated to leaking (Russian-approved) information, this struck me as a tad hypocritical, so I sent out the following tweet:

screen-shot-2017-01-11-at-5-35-16-pm

I was perhaps a bit peevish, but I thought the point would be well-taken. Not so; WikiLeaks was NONE TOO PLEASED when they saw that an extremely important (NOPE) journalist (I am not in ANY way a journalist) was criticizing them:

screen-shot-2017-01-11-at-5-35-43-pm

WELL THEN!

I’m going to take the opportunity to speak to WikiLeaks directly here. OK, WikiDicks, it’s time to explain how American libel law works. I know you’re not aware of what “libel” actually means, since to you it’s “anything that says mean words about Dear Leader Poot-Poot” and “the consequences” are “being gunned down in a dark alley while Putin smirks and makes a real-life shruggie.” And no, despite all the people saying so on Twitter, the reason I’m not in any way guilty of libel is not because I was “only asking a question” and “wasn’t talking about Assange.” I was definitely talking about Assange. Fuck that guy.

Here’s the thing: US libel law places the burden of proof on the accuser, not the accused. Yes, it’s true that in other countries that don’t value Free Speach as much as the US (*cough* the UK *cough*), the burden of proof is on the accused, but that’s not how it works here in ‘MURICA (TM). Here in ‘MURICA (TM), when writing about a public figure, not only does libel require that the statement in question be false, but the person stating it has to know that it’s false (or have acted recklessly with regard to the facts).

As a matter of fact, I don’t know your bossman isn’t a rapist. In fact, I very firmly believe the allegations about him are completely true. I believe it based on my reading of what the victims said he did. I believe he has sexually assaulted multiple women and has thus far completely evaded justice for it. I believe Julian Assange is living slime, a vicious monster who’d gleefully plunge the world into chaos just because Papa Putin tells him to. Why should I have any trouble believing a man like that is capable of rape, the one crime for which there can be no mitigating circumstances?

I don’t believe this based on any secret info I have that no one else does; I’ve read the same news articles as everyone else.

As far as acting recklessly with regard to the facts… he’s currently hiding out in the Ecuadorian embassy in London like the coward he is specifically to avoid extradition due to rape allegations. If that doesn’t meet the good faith standard for believing he’s guilty, I have no idea what would.

There’s another aspect to libel, too: You would have to prove that my statement in some way did harm to you. How exactly does a rando on Twitter calling Assange a rapist do you harm? Are you going to sue everyone who calls him a rapist? Because, uh… that’s not a small number of people. So how exactly does my statement do harm other than the self-inflicted damage from you picking a fight with me? You can’t argue the tweet harms you if the only reason it does is your own decision to highlight it.

So sure, WikiLeaks — you might well be able to win a libel suit if you went after me in the UK, or the Philippines, or any number of other countries deeply hostile to freedom of speech. In which case — ONOES! MY MANY OVERSEAS ASSETS WOULD BE FORFEITED! But you’re not going to do even that. Why, you ask? Because Assange would have to leave his coward cave to be deposed. That’s the last thing you want, because he’d immediately be extradited to Sweden to face justice. Can’t have that happening.

In short: WikiLeaks can eat my taint, I believe their boss is a rapist, and I regret nothing. Blow me, you repression-apologist fuckbuckets.

The preceding has been lawyered. Good luck in your future endeavors!

    I, also too, believe Assange is a gross, pervy, rapist. Am I doing the libelz in Wikileaks’ eyes?

    • SnarkON

      Nope. That is called “the right to fair comment,” and you get to do it with impunity when a public figure is involved. This is the very definition of the First Amendment.

        In Assange’s defence he had his fingers crossed behind his back when he said that.

      • Brendan_M

        If Obama pardons Edward Snowden, Julian Assange will agree to be exiled to the Phantom Zone without protest. How noble.

  • Rick Hill

    Looks like you were just asking a general question. I wonder why they took it personally?

    • Oblios_Cap

      Methinks the scumbag doth protest too much.

  • SnarkON

  • Brendan_M

    American libel laws and freedom of speech certainly protect what you said.

    For now.

  • Chyron HR

    Excuse me, Libel McLibel, but little Ju-Ju has made it perfectly clear that he is hiding in the embassy so that the Democrats can’t get him. I’m sure he plans to return from his self-imposed exile the moment Donald Trump is sworn in (or on Monday at the latest, once Trump actually starts his new job).

    • Shibusa

      Trump will probably tap Assange to head up the NSA.

      • TJ Barke

        Which JA will use to persecute any leftists that supported him because he is a right libertarian fuckshit.

      • The thought of Trump tapping Assange is enough to turn anyone off anal intercourse

    • Blackest Noobs

      maybe more like Wed will be President (sic) Trump’s 1st day of work as President, you know because he might be tuckered out from all the partying.

    • Pissed de Résistance

      When I retired from Civil Service, I got a letter demanding $3.25 because they’d fucked up my final paycheck. I paid it, but it cost them a stamp, an envelope, a return envelope and an accountant probably an hour to put the twelve pages of what they were going to do to me if I didn’t pay it. Dumbshits.

    • alwayspunkindrublic

      I don’t think he’s a knock-’em-over-the-head-in-a-dark-alley type of rapist. What he surely is is an entitled little shit who thinks whatever he does or says is right and anyone who disagrees is stupid and evil. That this could also include predation on women would come as no surprise.

    • Pissed de Résistance

      No, he’s more of an “Honest, the check’s in the mail” kinda rapist.

  • Joe Beese

    For any of you silly enough to think that any of the state actors give a fuck about justice for rape victims, Naomi Wolf has this observation:

    Never in twenty-three years of reporting on and supporting victims of sexual assault around the world have I ever heard of a case of a man sought by two nations, and held in solitary confinement without bail in advance of being questioned — for any alleged rape, even the most brutal or easily proven. In terms of a case involving the kinds of ambiguities and complexities of the alleged victims’ complaints — sex that began consensually that allegedly became non-consensual when dispute arose around a condom — please find me, anywhere in the world, another man in prison today without bail on charges of anything comparable.

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/naomi-wolf/jaccuse-sweden-britain-an_b_795899.html

    • Guinnessmonkey

      Well, if Naomi Wolf says it, it has to be true. *eyeroll*

      Sweden has been prosecuting these kind of rapes for years. Naomi was just being a tool. I don’t know if she still believes this garbage, as that article is from 2011, though she probably does, as she’s the left-wing equivalent of InfoWars at this point. The woman spent a decade claiming that a military coup in the United States was imminent, and claimed that ISIS videos of hostages being executed had be staged by the Obama administration. She’s a crazy person.

      • Pissed de Résistance

        This does not change Joe Beese’s point about the state(s) not giving a flying fuck about the actual victim.

        • Guinnessmonkey

          Yes, it does. The whole “Sweden has been doing this for years” bit does.

          I was reading about how seriously Sweden was taking sexual assault years before Assange started pretending that they were only doing so ‘cuz the eeeeeeevil Americans put them up to it.

          • Pissed de Résistance

            Mmmm. Ok, maybe.

          • Pissed de Résistance

            ‘I was reading about how seriously Sweden was taking sexual assault”

            Well, that proves it then.

        • Considering that the entire point is predicated on poor Julian being held without bail and in solitary, which is BS since he put himself there willingly and in fact is not yet even under arrest, I would say it probably does.

    • He is not being held in solitary.
      He cowardly ran away to hide from a trial of his own volition.
      He can come out any time he pleases.

    • Thiazin Red

      He also raped a woman while she was asleep.

    • Amy!

      So Assange is in prison now?

      I thought that he had isolated himself, as a consequence of a refusal to conform to the laws of two countries he was or had been visiting. Weird.

      Do the Ecuadorans know that their embassy is actually a prison?

      How about FSB/GRU ties to the Russia mob?

      How come I can find out more from what remains of the non-government co-opted press in Russia than I can from WikiLeaks? I mean, reporting this stuff is friggin hazardous to your health in Russia, and yet some brave journalists are still trying while Assange cowers in an embassy in London creating agitprop for Russia, and even helps running a disinformation campaign for Putin.

      • Zippy W Pinhead

      He wouldn’t be embarrassed, he would just keep denying that it existed while it was playing right in front of him. Then a sizable portion of the public and media would just accept that it didn’t exist.

      • Donkey Option

        The beauty of the Trump mindset – the amazing ability to deny something right in front of your face while at the same time insisting on the existence of something that actually doesn’t exist (like the videos of Muslims in NJ celebrating during 9/11.) What is real isn’t, and what isn’t real is. I think we have entered the Twilight Zone.

      I recall that line, unfortunately, from one of the accusers. Quite the charmer, this guy.

  • Pinkham, you should read Marcus Ranum’s post on “Free Thought Blogs” about Assange and his crew of hackers.
    Fellow Travellers

    /snip

    Lamo flipped Manning to the feds, once Assange had the documents. Actually, Lamo was flipping Manning to the feds while the transfer was going on, it was a coin-toss how it all worked out, but no matter how it worked out, Manning was going to be roadkill and Lamo, Uber, and Assange simply didn’t give a shit for a second.

    /snip

    I don’t see Assange as more or less of a “piece of work” than these other characters; to me they’re all birds of a particularly nasty and dangerous sort, who flock together only when it’s convenient for them, and who’ll do or say anything without remorse, as long as it gets them what they want. One of the great tragedies of these affairs is that Julian Assange managed to successfully play one of the greatest sociopathic hacker scams of all times, to get himself positioned as a great human being, journalist, genius, etc. He’s definitely smart. But nobody who has had any interactions with the sociopathic hacker personality would turn their back on Assange for a second.

      I know. It’s like finding out Scientology is a scam and represses its own membership, huh?

      Julian’s little cult had people fooled because some of them were *true believers* in the beginning.

      It was only a matter of time, however, until the truth came out. And the decent folks grew some common sense and got the fuck out of that mess.

      I’m straight, but if I change affiliation, do I get a toaster oven or something?

      • Gayer Than Thou

        You want a toaster oven? Better learn the words and choreography to several Broadway show tunes – the certification exam is no joke.

        • Unpresidented Ron

          Wow, glad I don’t want the Subaru!

          • Vienna Woods

            But would you have had your accident the other night in a Subaru? I have a friend 5 mins down the road in our rural paradise who won’t shut the fuck up about his Subaru in bad weather.

          • Unpresidented Ron

            Yup. The Fusion has AWD, and it was engaged at the time, but there was literally NO traction at all. When there’s snow a touch of throttle kicks the back end around nice as you please, but it was just water over ice. The only thing that would have prevented it was tire studs, but the Ontario government has been stupid about studs for many, many decades now.

          • Vienna Woods

            I know, I was joking. My friend is just obnoxious about his Subaru.

          • Unpresidented Ron

            Ah.
            Then you’ll find this amusing: my BFF has an Outback, but when we go places we ALWAYS take my car. ALWAYS. Even when my car was falling to bits. I know he loves it, but I think he’s embarrassed by Subaru’s legendary awful gas mileage.

        • alwayspunkindrublic

          There’s gotta be an easier way to get a free toaster…

          • Zippy W Pinhead

            not for me. Thanks to all the touring musicals we’ve put out, I’m practically an honorary ghey person.

          Silly me. I thought that the G.R.E was the Graduate Record Exam. My bad.

          • eka

            either way, taking it automatically identifies you as a hated person among the conservatives. unless you’re rich.

      • BadKitty904

        You get an attractively bound copy of the Homintern’s latest edition of The Gay Agenda and a 10% discount at the GAP.

            but I do want to hear the good news of Elton John! why do only the christians knock on my door?

          • handyhippie65

            cause they are the only ones trying to force their stuff down anyone’s throat, no matter what conservaturds claim.

        • Zippy W Pinhead

          the GAP???

          I was at least expecting Bed, Bath and Beyond

          • BadKitty904

            Stereotypes aside, I so so loathe shopping for clothes that most of mine are Xmas/birthday gifts. Consequently, I genuinely have no idea where my fellow homos prefer to buy clothes.

          • Tiny kaiju

            The nice ladies here in VT mostly go to Tractor Supply. I don’t know where they get their vintage cat eye glasses though.

      • C4TWOMAN

        There were times I wondered if, deep, deep, deep, DEEP down I was really a lesbian because I have no interest in a standard romantic relationship with a man. I have no problem buying the candy, paying for meals, hanging pictures, doing the yardwork, you get the idea. I have zero desire to be “protected”—like from what that I can’t do myself? There have even been a total of two women I felt a potential romantic attraction to, but there was one teensy problem: they were not male. I really like to look at a male body and tits turn me right off.
        Turns out changing sexual preferences isn’t something “decided” or can be forced into.
        But my romantic life would be a lot easier if I was gay. Not a complaint. I love the boys. Just an observation.

        • Pissed de Résistance

          What about my oven?

          • C4TWOMAN

            Sorry, I think you have to refer those complaints to the Militant Homosexual Agenda Committee. I’ve never been sure how to contact them, but ask the Religious Right. They seem to be very informed.

        • YoNastyBunny

          Would that we could just change our orientation. I’ve always said that I have a somewhat unjustified, unfortunate and regrettable attraction for peen and/or the persons to whom they are attached.

          • C4TWOMAN

            I’m actually very happy to “ride stick”. It’s more the culture that expects that equals I want to be a delicate feminine flower.
            Um, no. Why would I do that?

            It was more of a “problem” in the past. Now there are more men who both don’t have a problem with that and aren’t lying to themselves about having a problem with that:

            Passive-aggressive whine: “But you never where a dress!”
            “Sweetie, if you like dresses that much, by all means buy and wear one.”

          • Gayer Than Thou

            Well, it’s like Grandma always used to say: in life, you take the peen with the bad.

        • Little Lulu ResistanceFighter

          Lots of prayer might help.

        • foreign agitator Captain Kraut

          Meh. I hear you.
          I never quite understood the attractiveness of that traditional male role of “protector” or better yet, “decider” (aka good old patriarchy).
          It’s hard enough work to be a responsible human being navigating this highly complex world, why the fuck would I want the added responsibility to decide the life of another individual?
          That has nothing to do with “standing by your man/lady”, but if you* want to share your life with someone who absolutely adores you and submits to you, why not just get a fucking dog.

          *not you

          • C4TWOMAN

            Heh, well, obviously:

            You’ve heard of several kinds of cat
            And my opinion now is that
            You should need no interpreter
            To understand our character

            You’ve learned enough to take the view
            That cats are very much like you
            You’ve seen us both at work and games
            And learnt about our proper names
            Our habits and our habitat
            But how would you ad-dress a cat

            So first, your memory I’ll jog
            And say, “A cat is not a dog”

          i’m here to tell you, there are some of us who like a strong, self reliant partner. i want someone to stand beside me, not walk three steps behind.

    • Gayer Than Thou

      Ironically, at the same time, fewer US adults are identifying as LGBT in my bedroom.

      • BadKitty904

        Thanks, Trump!

      • handyhippie65

        aww, you’re ruining my idea of how much fun it is to be all sexy sexy with the same gender. don’t tell me it’s as hard for you as it is for everyone else. that’s just not fair after all of the other crap you have to go through.

        • Gayer Than Thou

          You think you’re disappointed? I actually signed up for the lifetime membership because they promised it would be nonstop sex orgies!

          • handyhippie65

            i’m sayin. that’s what i thought it was like. total disillusionment. well, since you have the same probs as the rest of us, good luck, we all need it.

    • Lance Thrustwell

      The social conservatives and evangelicals are right – it’s spreading! Soon, Tony Perkins and Bryan Fischer will be married in a clothing-optional secular service officiated by Cher on Fire Island.

        One fisting-themed wedding cake coming right up!

      • BadKitty904

        Homosexuality is just as contagious as, say, being tall.

        • Tiny kaiju

          Does that mean if I become a lesbian I’ll grow a few inches? It would really help with my body image and blood pressure. I wish I’d known about this years ago.

          • BadKitty904

            I’m a 5’5″ gay guy. So, no.

        • C4TWOMAN

          OMG OMG OMG I was next to a tall person at Trader Joes last week!! I’m sure I’m growing another inch just talking about it!!

          Seriously, tho, that would be kinda kool. I could get that 4 more inches I wanted when I was a teen….

          • Querolous

            I walk by people with hair every day yet I am still bald.

          • C4TWOMAN

            Weird!

            4 more inches? Say, does that work for, umm, body parts as well?

    If you really wanted to libel Assange, you could have accused him of liking weirdo performance art and/or satanic rituals (same thing).

    • Creepoman

      Or Nickelback.

        Can we _do_ that? Suggest such a thing? I’d figure there might even be criminal statutes applying here. Degrading insinuations or somesuch.

  • FZsdaughter

    Bleh, there is plenty of room to doubt the allegations of rape. I love Wonkette but this is over the top.

    • WiscoJoe

      No! Please protect Wikileaks from over the top allegations!

    • Oh … my

      Sexual assault of the type Assange is alleged to have committed is, under Swedish Law, the equivalent of rape as it involved sexual activity carried out without consent. What would you call it?

      • Steve C

        The rape allegations against him are difficult to believe.

        • alwayspunkindrublic

          You don’t think someone as gallingly self-righteous, misogynistic, and narcissistic as Assange would extend that mentality to his treatment of women?

          • Steve C

            I haven’t seen evidence of his misogyny. Do you have a quote or something?

          • You mean he leads an organisation that is unashamedly misogynist and is supported by the vile women haters of 4chan and 8chan but you “see no evidence”

            Blocked

          • Steve C

            No. I said I haven’t seen evidence, not that I refuse to see evidence. What has WL done that is misogynist? (The fact that women haters like him isn’t actually evidence that he hates women). If you want me to agree with you, maybe post a link or something.

          • Ricky Gay

            you really seem to be chewing on a bone here dawg.

          • Steve C

            I should just accept the claim that Assange and WL hate women because someone on the internet said so?

          • Ricky Gay

            I never tell a dawg how long to chew.

          • Steve C

            You just imply that it is too long?

          • Ricky Gay
          • Steve C

            Message still unclear.

          • It’s a concern troll, probably 2 of them. One is using the Wonkette page for replies the other Disqus

          • alwayspunkindrublic

            An article by someone who at one time wanted to work for Wikileaks, in the Guardian, if I recall. And according to just about everyone who has ever been around him, asslicker Glenn Greenwald being the possible exception. Would evidence of his misogyny matter to you?

          • Steve C

            The public record is full of interviews and things he has written. I was actually expecting a reference to some something like that. But cool, a guy who has it in for him wrote something vague about him once. I would have a lot less respect for him/WL if they hate women.

          • alwayspunkindrublic

            What the fuck do you want to hear? You obviously admire the man and/or love to play the inflexible contrarian. Why don’t you stop being disingenuous and come clean about your sympathies, as I have by openly stating that I loathe Assange. Instead you get cute trying to accuse me of being a homophobe. Fuck off.

          • Steve C

            I want to hear actual opinions backed by evidence, not just an robotic echo chamber. I have sympathy for people who are suffering for their beliefs and who are being victimized by corporate governance. i honestly don’t understand why people like you bother making comments at all. You aren’t interested in other viewpoints, and you don’t bring any real insight with you. Does being one more turd on a giant dog pile give you a sense of belonging?

          • alwayspunkindrublic

            You didn’t come here to listen to anyone else or express interest in other viewpoints. There is a wealth of sourced information about Assange being less than the altruistic crusader you believe him to be, as pstockholm pointed out above, but did that give you pause? So get off your fucking high horse….you came here to be a shitstirrer on behalf of your boy, and then-as is predictable with the troll mentality-you get all righteous and butthurt when people don’t agree with you. Fuck you and your faux-highminded proprietary lecture. Go play where someone likes you.

          • Steve C

            You might have noticed in my comments that I was able to engage in a discussion without childish attempts to belittle those who don’t agree with me, or even just appeal to things ‘everyone knows’ about Assange. There is not a ‘wealth of sourced information’ about him being a shitbag. There are plenty of half-assed hit pieces about him from shills looking to climb the corporate media ladder that know he is unpopular with those at the top. I understand that people don’t share my perspective on this, and I’m always curious as to why. All you seem to want to do is score imaginary internet points by trying to be cleverly dismissive of someone challenging your (poorly thought-out) positions. Well mark this down as another victory in the war against all who don’t conform. By putting me in my place, you’ve really shown me the error of being skeptical of radical claims about outsiders trying to promote peace through transparency.

          • alwayspunkindrublic

            Reading and comprehension aren’t in your skill set, I see. Every person you “engaged” with either essentially called you a moron, blocked you, or like me, told you to fuck off. I told you why I don’t share your perspective: Because Assange ratfucked the election on behalf of Trump and Putin, something that obviously doesn’t conflict with your infantile “peace through transparency” mantra. And climb down off your fucking “those who don’t conform” cross; anyone who’s defense of an accused rapist is basically “bitches set him up” makes a shoddy martyr. So brave and noble of you, you sniveling hypocrite. We’re done here, pal. Do yourself a favor and get a life. Transparent enough for you?

          • Steve C

            You shouldn’t be so proud of your ignorance. The truth isn’t established by who can be the most abusive. Mockery isn’t an argument.

          • Steve C

            If you don’t want to be called a homophobe, maybe don’t call prominent gays ‘asslickers’. He gets enough abuse from ignorent people already.

          • alwayspunkindrublic

            I could give a fuck about Greenwald’s sexual orientation. “Asslicker” was a reference to his slavish defense of a narcissistic zealot who saw it as his interest to ratfuck the election on behalf of Trump and Putin. But, of course, you know that…you’re just tossing out shit to see what will stick.

          • Steve C

            What is with the asslicker comment? Are you some kind of homophobe?

        • He was allowed to have sexual intercourse with (at least) one woman on the understanding that a condom would be used. In the morning he woke and, without asking, had sexual intercourse again but this time a condom was either not used or broke. He continued his activity without consent.

          What do you find difficult to believe?

          • Steve C

            The troubling part for me is that there is no suggestion that these women had any concern about Assange until they each learned that he had unprotected sex with the other one. Even then, they only made the allegations after finding out that there was no other way to force him to have an STD check. It really seems more likely a case of regret for consensual unprotected sex and bitterness at infidelity than an assault.

          • pstockholm

            You spin an exculpatory tale out of the few threads of available information. That says more about you than any “likelihood”.

          • Steve C

            What does it say about me?

          • That you are a man who sees nothing wrong in certain types of sexual assault.

          • Steve C

            That doesn’t make any sense. I never said the accusations weren’t of sexual assault, only that I don’t find them credible.

          • Making excuses

          • Steve C

            If he did what they say, he is a rapist. I believe almost every accusation of rape, I just don’t believe these two women.

          • Yeah … right.

            I find your assertion totally believable – for given values of belief.

          • pstockholm

            Because ..?

          • Steve C

            For the reasons I said. They didn’t make rape allegations until after they found out he was two-timing them, and after they found out they couldn’t otherwise force him to get an STD check. One of them said she didn’t want him charged at all.

          • So What?

            That is what the legal process is supposed to sort out, the process Assange has deliberately avoided testing

          • Steve C

            So it is going to far to screech “rapist shitbag” at him.

          • pstockholm

            He’s pretty definitely a shitbag, by evidence of his own utterances and writings. Have you read the feature length articles on him, New Yorker and LRB or Guardian I think?
            As for “rapist”, that is what the Swedish legal procedure is supposed to determine. Since he has evaded that I think screeching “rapist” is allowable for a public figure.
            All this is before his latest shenanigans for which he deserves all the screeching in the world.
            For the good thing that Wikileaks started as, we can give him credit. Will that make you happier?

          • Steve C

            He hasn’t been charged with rape. He was interviewed in Sweden and allowed to leave the Country. He is now facing extradition for questioning on a matter that he has been questioned on twice, but no charges have been laid. I don’t think it’s reasonable to call someone UN legal experts have ruled is unlawfully detained a rapist on such weak grounds.
            I don’t really care if he’s prickly and difficult to get along with. I think it’s sad that his situation seems to have caused him to behave more extreme than previously.

          • pstockholm

            “Two-timing” is your imaginative addition to the few available facts. AFAIK they went to the police together to force an STD test, after having met and compared notes on what a dick he was.

          • Steve C

            Yes, there are two main competing theories on what happened. That he assaulted them and they only went to police after realizing they weren’t alone is one of them. It just doesn’t seem as likely to me.

          • So … what …

            If that is Assanges defense then all he has to do is go back to Sweden and face the charges not run and hide in the Ecuadorian embassy on the specious grounds that the charges were a plot to have him rendered to the USA.

            In practice if he had gone back and been found guilty then he would now be a free man, instead he has now added the layer of being a fugitive

          • Steve C

            If Sweden guaranteed no extradition, he would have gone. I wouldn’t want to risk life in US prison on false charges.

          • They did guarantee no extradition unless other crimes came to light. If Assange had committed murder and that was discovered at a later date saying he could not be extradited for such a crime would be abuse of process.

          • Steve C

            No. They said they couldn’t guarantee because there were no charges yet.

          • Read what I wrote

            There were no charges from outside Sweden. There were no charges inside Sweden, only an investigation.

            Stop being a pettifogger

          • Steve C

            So you tell me why he didn’t go to Sweden. There is no way he’d be convicted if charged for his actions in Sweden.

          • pstockholm

            Yet he had no fear of the UK, a close US ally, seizing him and extraditing. It doesn’t add up.

          • Steve C

            The Sweden-US extradition allows little room for appeal. Not so for UK-US>

          • It allows a different appeal system to the UK and it is not one that can be strung out over many years. Note also he realised that the UK could easily extradite him to Sweden yet he say no profit in appealing that.

            You are making excuses for the fugitive again

          • pstockholm

            Something tells me you know almost nothing about Swe-US and UK-US extradition treaties and procedures. Why do I get that feeling? And why am I getting a whiff of that that slightly gamey troll stench? Could be just me I guess.

          • Steve C

            I’m just basing my opinion on the facts as I (a non-expert in Law) understand them. You really aren’t giving me anything that challenges

          • alwayspunkindrublic

            Life in a U.S. prison would not be the automatic result of extradition…we have that whole “legal system” thingie that means he would have to be first indicted, tried, and convicted. He would no doubt have access to a very powerful pro bono legal team for such a high profile case. I don’t know if he is indeed a rapist. What I do know is that he is an amoral, self-aggrandizing shitbag who ratfucked our presidential election on behalf of some reprehensible people. I could give a shit if he rots in prison for the rest of his miserable life.

          • pstockholm

            He was wanted for questioning. Charges might have resulted. He might have been convicted, always an uncertain outcome in rape cases, even in Sweden. If convicted on the most likely charges, yes he would have been out long ago, if he was ever even imprisoned.
            So he really had no valid excuse except a fear that it was a honey-trap sting and the Swedes were waiting to turn him over to the US. A ludicrous proposition. Note that the likelihood of the UK snatching him off the street in the years he stayed there are much greater than the that of Sweden doing that – didn’t seem to bother him.

          • Thanks for the correction. I was aware of that but the concern troll had me pissed off

          • pdvst

            Wasn’t meant as a correction, just an echo of what you said, for the benefit of the troll. Not that he noticed.

          • Thiazin Red

            Or they each didn’t think they would be believed on their own.

          • Steve C

            That is a possibility. I just don’t find it more likely in this case.

          • Donkey Option

            Because rape victims are always believed when they accuse someone of assault. Uh huh. I want to live in that world.

          • Steve C

            Most rape allegations deserve to be believed, and things need to change so that they are. This particular case just stinks.

        • Guinnessmonkey

          Why? They seem totally consistent with his personality.

      • pstockholm

        Doesn’t really matter what it’s called. It matters that the accused are held to account. If you flee a legitimate warrant to appear for questioning a state can and often will come after you.

        • Steve C

          Normally states don’t allow people wanted for questioning to leave the country, and when they do it is very unusual for them to be able to force them back without charging them with an offense.

    • Lance Thrustwell

      Yeah… I was kind of thinking that too. But I still love Pinkham’s style.

    • Unpresidented Ron

      And yet there he hides. Is not flight generally considered evidence of consciousness of guilt?

      • C4TWOMAN

        Not defending Asange here–I think he’s guilty—but that’s not the best argument. Ask a black person in ‘Murica.

        • Dr. Rrrrrobotnik

          Just to throw this out there (because I understand the point being made), but some might consider the comparison between a white man facing charges for rape in Sweden and being a black person in ‘Murica to be a bit strained.

          • Thiazin Red

            I mean have you seen Scandanavian prisons? The cells are bigger and nicer than most NYC apartments. Its not remotely the same.

          • C4TWOMAN

            Or the “black person in ‘Murica” is just an example of how sometimes the system can’t be trusted, NOT a comparison to Assange’s situation.

            Is everyone very stoned today? Full moon? Seems to be a higher incidents of crossed wires/misunderstandings….

          • Dr. Rrrrrobotnik

            Like I said, I took your meaning. But there’s no real reason that I’m aware of to distrust this particular system. Distrusting a system simply because it exists isn’t exactly the strongest ground to stand on, particularly if said system provides prison cells that resemble luxury aparments.

            Versus the one you invoked, where black folk here get gunned down for looking at police funny. *That’s* a legitimate reason to distrust authority.

          • C4TWOMAN

            I was replying to the blanket assertion that fleeing equals guilt. You can latch onto your bone all you want and pretend that I was making an equivalencing I wasn’t. There are others: corrupt local politicians, actually a real problem in Arizona no matter what “race” you are. (Though that appears to be clearing up).

            My sole point is it’s not the BEST argument. Anyone who has a good reason to think corruption is in play, might flee, guilty or not. By all means continue to insist I meant something else. Have fun.
            Oh and I still think Asange is guilty. Jesus.

          • Dr. Rrrrrobotnik

            Fleeing is an option, when a person can reasonably assume that there is corruption or some aggravating that affects them personally. Thing is, even Assange has never really asserted that, so much as his belief that Sweden’s laws are overly strict and the (nebulous) belief that he might be extradited to the U.S. for some reason.

            You’re reading hostility where there isn’t any; if I’d wanted to be all capslock I’d have said your comparison was outrageous or something, not strained. If you’re reading this much into my (fairly mild) comments, along with apparently some other people’s, then maybe it’s *you* who’s having the crossed wires.

          • C4TWOMAN

            Okay this is the point–because I have been in your shoes–that you say” Mkay, clearly we missunderstood each other, I accept you mean what you said even though it sounded like something else. It’s all good, let’s drop it”

          • Dr. Rrrrrobotnik

            Fair enough. For the record, I never intended to accuse you of being an Assange apologist or thinking that he was right to flee.

          • Up In Smoke O’hontas

            I think most sane people are inordinately stressed and scrambled due to the upcoming repeal of America.

          • C4TWOMAN

            I’ll buy that.

    • anon_the_great

      Um, I gently disagree. Pinkham didn’t write about rape allegations, he wrote about a cack-handed attempt to censor free speech on this side of the pond.

  • Pinkham,
    You are awesome. You probably know this.
    Also: Right on.
    And in conclusion: Fuck Assange, the rapist pig. I hope he gets just what is coming to him AND is forced to squat in the Ecuadorian consulate until they grow sick of his mooching dumb ass and chuck him out.

        There is no anonymous. It was a meme that was cool until 2011 when the Feds and Interpol rounded up the few real hackers using that meme.

  • Donkey Option

    I, too, believe that Assange is a rapist. And that he is either a knowing or unknowing stooge of the Russian government. And that the only thing he actually cares about is fame and he doesn’t care who he hurts. So, add one more to the lawsuit!

    You’re not just some rando on Twitter. You’re our rando on Twitter.

    I think the fair punishment is for Assange to lick Trump’s wrinkly, dried apricot like taint…

    Anonymous has a good Twitter thread about Assange and Wikileaks and what’s gone wrong. (TL;DR- Assange has always been a right-wing libertarian with fascist tendencies. The people within Wikileaks that were committed to transparency and left-wing ideology have all left the organization, while Assange took credit for the work they’ve done.)

    Oh there are going to be some FURIOUS tweets from those assholes.

    Another in the many reasons I am not a fan of Twitter. The mockery is fun but the stupid is an abomination.

  • ross

    No wonder they responded in such a way.
    If some dimwit tweeted at me with such an incredulously stupid statement I would do the same.
    You have obviously done no research into the “Rape” case, and how it is a political front to get a whistleblower in jail. Open your brain you simple minded little pleb.
    Instead of eating the CIA’s rubbish about Russian Propoganda.

    American propaganda is the issue.

    • Bemused

      Ah, I see an RT representative has arrived.

      So, the way free speech in the US works is that you are allowed to say that you think the rape case against Assange is trumped up and Pinkham gets to say he thinks it’s the real deal and Assange is a rapist, and neither of you are guilty of libel. See how that works?

      • Iam Reading

        Ross is guilty of sodomizing small farm animals though.

        • BrianW

          Well I saw it on the internet so it MUST be true.

    • Bollocks

      1) Assange was only being investigated and refused to attend the judicial part of the investigation

      2) Despite his claims about rendering to the USA by the Swedes it would be far more likely that the British would do so

      3) No matter if it was Sweden or the UK doing an extradition he would have had access to the European Court of Human Rights – both are signatories

      4) Assange sought asylum in the Ecuadorian Embassy only when it was clear that the UK wanted this empathy/ethically challenged asshole out of the country and in Sweden. Note there was NEVER any threat to render him to the USA

      5) Assange was only seeking publicity, used Chelsea Manning and was quite happy when Manning was thrown under the bus by Lamo

      Now piss of back to the foetid swamp you crawled from

      • ross

        Good god, that whole comment reeked of ignorance mixed with pretentious confidence.

        Assange is not only is in hiding without any charges being active against him (Explain that please), but also his “Crime” (Which he has obviously not committed) has past t’s statutory time, meaning he cannot be charged for it anyway, yet he is still illegally persued. (Explain this please).

        Have you looked into ANY of the evidence about the case? How many times stories have been changed? How little evidence there is, and how the woman OPENLY ADMITS TO HAVING CONSENUAL SEX WITH HIM. The “rape” charge relies on a condom breaking…Apparently that then makes it rape.

        half of your bullet points are nothing but your pretentious, uneducated ramblings. You are a brainwashed cretin.

        As for the other fool with the RT reference, so stupid I will even humour it.

        You men are TOTALLY in the dark, thinking you are enlightened haha.
        this is ENTIRELY political. Hence why his internet was cut, HENCE WHY HIS LAWYER WAS NOT ALLOWED TO ATTEND HIS PREVIOUS QUESTIONING (Explain this one please, is he not allowed a Lawyer via the EU courts? Or do you still not understand how the world works?

        • Iam Reading

          So, would you say ASSange”s smegma tastes sweet or salty?

        • WomanInTheResistance

          While the reasoning is unhinged, and you did an okay job with the ALLCAPS and excessive parentheses, I still have to deduct on style points. 6/10

        • SammyDEEEEEE

          “Good god, that whole comment reeked of ignorance mixed with pretentious confidence.”

          Wow. You just managed to sum up your entire comment history.

        • timpundit

          Yeah it’s always EVERYONE ELSE, that’s wrong….lolololol

        • Assange in hiding with no charges because he is a paranoid asocial fuckhead who wants publicity.

          He is still a fugitive from justice which renders his case still active

          Yes, I have looked at the evidence and, personally I find the statements of the women concerned more believable than the denials of Assange, however it is up to the Swedish legal system to decide that not you or I

          I will not ask you to name one point that is pretentious or uneducated or rambling because you do not understand the meaning of those words

          I did not accuse you of being an RT troll, I believe you to be a 4chan or 8chan troll and probably an idiot MGTOW or Men’s Rights advocate as well

          I am not a conspiracy theorist – this is true, but unlike you I am a critical thinker

          Sweden remains a Sovereign nation because it is a signatory to the EU accords and treaties, thus it is allowed to continue to perform it’s legal activities in accordance with it’s own law and custom.

          An advocate is NOT present during the enquiry phase of the judicial process because Sweden has used a legal process based on the Code Napoleon for the past 200 years and the judicial questioning is done in public in accordance with long established precedent

          If Assange was found guilty in the Swedish courts in a trial (that is the point at which he is allowed an advocate) then he is free to appeal that verdict all the way to the European Court. Additionally as Sweden is a signatory to the Accords of the European Court of Human Rights (which is not the European Court) he could ask for his case to be examined there.

          Now you low post count troll, I’m blocking you so I will not be exposed to your ignorant rants.

          If I feel the urge I may also flag you and, with luck, you will make a farewell appearance in the “Dear Shit Fer Brains” column.

        • You do some research. Swedish law is not the same as US law, thank fuck.

          As I posted downthread

          Sexual assault of the type Assange is alleged to have committed is, under Swedish Law, the equivalent of rape as it involved sexual activity carried out without consent.

          Furthermore

          1) Assange was only being investigated and refused to attend the judicial part of the investigation
          2) Despite his claims about rendering to the USA by the Swedes it would be far more likely that the British would do so
          3) No matter if it was Sweden or the UK doing an extradition he would have had access to the European Court of Human Rights – both are signatories
          4) Assange sought asylum in the Ecuadorian Embassy only when it was clear that the UK wanted this empathy/ethically challenged asshole out of the country and in Sweden. Note there was NEVER any threat to render him to the USA

            FBI Probes Possible Covert Kremlin Aid to Trump

            January 18, 2017By Taegan Goddard7 Comments
            “The FBI and five other law enforcement and intelligence agencies have collaborated for months in an investigation into Russian attempts to influence the November election, including whether money from the Kremlin covertly aided President-elect Donald Trump,” McClatchy reports.

            “Investigators are examining how money may have moved from the Kremlin to covertly help Trump win… One of the allegations involves whether a system for routinely paying thousands of Russian-American pensioners may have been used to pay some email hackers in the United States or to supply money to intermediaries who would then pay the hackers, the two sources said.”

          • ross

            First of all you quote the FBI as if we should trust them…That is comical.

            Again, there is no evidence provided there at all, just a quote…From anonymous sources. Wow you really are blind, can’t you see you are eating propaganda? Haha brilliant.

          • timpundit

      Lol.

      UR A DUM.

    • efoveks

      Assange is not a whistleblower. He’s just a little jerk who lacks the spine to face charges leveled against him. Innocent people do not run and hide in a foreign embassy for years on end. From Sweden, of all places. It’s hardly a country known for violating human rights.

      American propaganda? You need to learn what that even means. The Swedes want to question him about a rape. That is NOT “American propaganda”.

  • The Rain in Spain’s Therapist

    Aaaand the chickenshit has backed out:

    according to a statement from his lawyer, “Mr. Assange welcomes the announcement that Ms. Manning’s sentence will be reduced and she will be released in May, but this is well short of what he sought. Mr. Assange had called for Chelsea Manning to receive clemency and be released immediately.”

    • JustDon’tSayPeePee

      Maybe we should look up “clemency”
      http://criminal-law.freeadvice.com/criminal-law/parole_probation/clemency.htm

      “Clemency under the criminal justice system is the act by an executive member of government of extending mercy to a convicted individual. In the United States, clemency is granted by a governor for state crimes and by a president for federal crimes. Clemency can take one of three forms: a reprieve, a commutation of sentence, or a pardon.”

      Chelsea got clemency as defined by law. Your move, Jules, you asshole.

  • Darthhippy

    Remember that Assange promised to extradite himself if Manning was commuted.
    https://twitter.com/wikileaks/status/819630102787059713

    • ZangoCrudmonger

      Is there an actual DoJ case against him? Or is he in delusionland, again?

    • boyblue122

      now hes making up excuses…his lawyer already Obama did not meet his demands

    • efoveks

      Don’t hold your breath. Assange, being the little shitweasel that he is, will claim that commuting Manning’s sentence and granting clemency are not EXACTLY the same thing. He won’t extradite himself because he is a coward.

      I do hope however, to be proven wrong.

    • JMP

      Even though the place actually asking for his extradition is Sweden, the place where we know he raped several women.

  • ZangoCrudmonger

    And, as a person who has lived through violent sexual assault, Assange is a straight up coward. I stand cold faced determined to survive every day the shit he (allegedly) and his ilk inflict on others without conscience or remorse. Assange, you are no hero. You are afraid you won’t be remembered as a political martyr, but instead a sexual opportunist, a predator. As you assault our democratic process as Putin’s tool, you forget Putin’s track record.

    Hey Julian, I look in the mirror and know I’m not a rapist, I didn’t continue the cycles of violence. Predators, such as you Julian, don’t know the hell survivors endure, because it’s all about YOU, ain’t it? I’ve fought daily against perps like you. Not sure what you see when you look in your mirror.

    Bring your best lawyers, shitweasel. I’ve got a few of my own. I think they are waiting for you in some foreign land, an exotic land. I’ve heard you’ve been there.

  • Scrofula

    Also, too, “Wikileaks Taskforce” wouldn’t sue, Assange would. Which would require him to crawl out of the utility closet the Ecuadorans shoved him in.
    Too, also, who the fuck are these “Taskforce” guys? They seem to not understand basic internet things like the Streisand Effect.
    Also, too, too, also, you’d think a group whose raison d’etre is leaking potentially defamatory documents might have a lawyer or a modicum of understanding how shit works. EFF they are not.

    • efoveks

      “Taskforce guys” = Russian basement trolls named “Honeybear”.

      • Scrofula

        I suddenly realized their Russian “consequences” might not mean lawyers. Or even frog memes. Be careful Pinkham!!!

    • Jennifer R

      The taskforce guys are high on the Antifa “these people are high value fucks” lists.

    • alpacapunchbowl

      They could try, and if they were as uncowardly as they are fucking morans, they would. The case would however get tossed before they even saw the front door of the courthouse because they have no standing.
      Fuck ’em.

    • Jennifer R

      Their whole gimmick is that as computer programmers and network gurus they must know everything, so things like laws certainly have to work the way their minds say. Anything else would mean they are just vigilantes.

      • efoveks

        Like there are any standards to practice law.. pafft! ;)

        • Jennifer R

          Just for getting the license.

  • efoveks

    So when can we libel Assange about what he leaks about Russia? He never seems to have any good dirt except on the US of Murka.

    Congrats on the empty threat toward you Pinkham: you are now a recognized journimalistic threat. You have ARRIVED! XD

  • Jennifer R

    Let’s be very clear. Julian Assange is 100% guilty of rape.

    • efoveks

      But he’s “taking it like a man”… (if by “man” we mean “not a man”)

      Every time I think about Chelsea Manning, I hate Assange for taking advantage of people. I am so glad Obama commuted her sentence. What she did was very brave. What Assange did was despicable. Anyway, I’ll get off my soapbox now.

  • OrdinaryJoe

    Epiphany for me when I read this story today: Wikileaks is nothing but a fucking Putin front operation that he uses for his maneuvering to destabilize the West.

  • Lefty Wright

    If all it took was the libel accuser to feel the comments were libelous and the person accused of libel to have to prove their statements in court, millions of people would be clogging the courts, including Trump, most of the Republican members of congress, the RNC and Trump’s campaign workers. It would be interesting to see them try to prove Clinton was a criminal since despite numerous allegations and investigations, she has never been charged with a crime, much less convicted. That’s exactly why any Republican with any sense wants to drop the entire Clinton farce. Discovery and depositions by her defense team would be hideous for the GOP.

  • JustDon’tSayPeePee

    Mr. Pinkham, you are under arrest for using canned clams in a pasta dish.

    Libel? Not so much.

  • Kooolest G

    I’m sure if assange gets extradited to the US, president twitler will use the full force of the law to prosecute him https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/05bbd60a7cc00ebfb3cb19ded879367b83b34245d3ce33437fad23e0e22710ca.jpg

    oh wait assange said something nice about trump, oh then that’s a different story, full pardons for all my friends

    • Boris Roberts

      Like Manning. Even the Network News said on Friday the reasons for releasing him, was because he is a Transgender, with issues about it and twice tried to commit sewercide. 750,000 leaked secret documents.

      • yyyaz

        And we all know what a paragon of truth-finding “Network News” is.

      • efoveks

        You over simplify. The main problem was that but for Assange, Manning would have never done this.

      • JMP

        Or because the military went way overboard and tortured her with solitary confinement that no one should ever have to live for. But hey, let’s keep being giant bigots who insist on referring to women as “he”!

            Huh? No, that’s not commonly used, I’ve never seen it before this idiot right here used it. And a non-idiot told me it comes from fucking 4han, the worst place on the entire internet.

          • ross

            I have no idea where it comes from, nor is it even remotely relevant.

            There are far worse websites than 4chan….This one for example.

      • ross

        I have no political bias at all.
        I used to watch TYT and all that other garbage religiously.

        I…Like you lot, was a deranged little fanboy who was too busy smoking his own political dope. Just like all of you cretins.

        However after years of actually caring what the truth is, it has led me to the realisation that all politics is a lie. All a game, the true politics are groups and fragments of secret societies that operate behind the scenes. Once you realise this you will see all this Russian nonsense, the CIA and the FBI for what they truly are, and you will realise that everything they say is a lie, with an intention behind it.

        Bush…Clinton…Obama…It does not matter, all work for the same group. All this pathetic partisan bullshit is why the fools on this thread are so lost. The people are waking up.

        • IOnlyLikeCats

          Oh so you’re a middle class cishet white man who has nothing to lose. That’s nice. Please go somewhere you’re white mansplaining will be touted as God’s Law or something. I don’t know where that would be, but I’m sure you do. EDIT: I forgot ableist. I apologize for this error.

          • ross

            “White man”….Are you some sort of SJW faggot or something? Leave such pathetic and irrelevant markers out of this conversation.

            I have nothing to lose? I am sorry, but where did you get this comical information from?…
            Is this whole thread a troll? Is this website a troll? I am confused because your comment is so painfully stupid it has stumped me…Is this a troll website?

          • IOnlyLikeCats

            Well yes I do believe in social justice and I will fight for it. I’m not gay, I’m asexual. These markers aren’t irrelevant, because the difference between Bush and a centrist like Obama and a center-left like Clinton is that I get healthcare, don’t die, receive education and don’t drown in debt. Clearly, you’ve never had to worry about these things.

          • JMP

            What, the emails stolen by Russians and given to Wikileaks to help get an actual fascist elected President of the United States, which the conservatively biased mainstream media covered breathlessly even though they ended up showing absolutely nothing controversial whatsoever? Why?

          • ross

            First of all who cares who the fuck stole them? THEY ARE FROM PODESTA THE HEAD OF HER CAMPAIGN THEY ARE ALL 100% REAL.
            Conservative media…HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHA

          • JMP

            And they showed John Pedesta’s risotto recipe. They’re real and showed absolutely nothing controversial whatsoever, so ?

            Well the biased conservative mainstream media didn’t care who stole them, but they fucking should have. This is the really crazy part, where we have an actual honest real-world sinister conspiracy going on here, where the KGB and the FBI worked together to install a fascist monster who had agreed to do Vladimir Putin’s bidding as President of the United States – and yet you conspiracy theorist lunatics are completely ignoring it in favor of completely made-up bullshit.

            For people old enough to remember the 70s, did the conspiracy theorists then ignore Watergate to focus on investing the JFK assassination or the moon landing?

            What a trivial and pathetic little point to bring up, you must be a bot.
            THEY SHOWED NOTHING CONTROVERSIAL? did you look at ANY of the emails you pathetic halfwit?

            Forget the MOUNTAIN of unethical and criminal activites released in the emails.
            Lets talk about Hillarys illegal collusion with the DNC to cheat the real winner of the primaries Bernie Sanders? That was legal and ethical was it?

            Do some fucking independent research you pleb. Your whole pathetic world view will change, as mine did.

          • JMP

            Why would I look at stolen emails that should never have been made public in the first place? And no, they showed absolutely nothing controversial. and Hillary Clinjton again is a very eithical public servant who has never committed any crimes. The crap accusation from Sanders dead-enders about collusion was proven to be completely false.

            Do some fucking research from actual credible sources, not Breitbart or Infowars. Here, you’re on Wonkette, a political news site that, while snarky, has always been known to be credible. You can even look at conservative leaning sites that at least care about getting facts right, like CNN or the New York Times.

          • ross

            You first sentence says everything.
            You do not care about what is factual, you are a biased, brainwashed little snowflake bitch.
            The rest of this garbage was just so ludicrous and separate from reality I shall not even mention it.
            #LockHerUp.

          • JMP

            No, unlike you I actually do care about what is factual! Like the fact that Hillary Clinton has never committed any crimes and every accusation against her was proven to be completely made up.

          • ross

            No you do not. Can you explain why the head of the DNC stepped down? Can you explain Donna Brazilles PATHETIC responses when confronted by Ben of TYT? Do you watch any independent media at all? If so please link me

          • JMP

            You might try actually spelling out what you’re talking about if you want to be understood. What the fuck is TYT supposed to refer to? Guess what, when you use an acronym that’s not commonly known, people won’t have any fucking clue what you’re talking about. And since you seem to mean crazy conspiracy theorists like Alex fucking Jones by “independent media”, no I stay away from that worthless shit.

            I do however get news from actual trustworthy independent media, like a certain political blog called Wonkette! It’s at http://www.wonkette.com, there is your link.

          • ross

            You are a bot.

          • eka

            I’m getting the feeling that all you want to do is call people names, so it seems a waste of energy to use all these other words. Can disqus maybe create a dropdown checkbox option so you can pick “snowflake”, “bitch”, “fa….”, etc? It would totally streamline your commenting day.

            Nope, only when provoked :) Can I help you with something?

          • Binkysbroad

            Yes. I’m wondering why you think it’s appropriate to come into someone else’s living room and start telling them how to rearrange the furniture?

          • ross

            ….What? Like seriously, what are you talking about?

          • JMP

            That you, the crazy conspiracy theorist troll, just proved yourself to be antisemitic with that “Zionist” crap, just as you earlier proved to be a homophobe by using the F-word – not “fuck”, the one that actually is offensive – and a general bigot by using “social justice warriors”. That’s what I’m talking about; how in addition to being a lunatic you’re a fucking bigot.

          • ross

            Zionist…Antisemtic….HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH you have no idea what is going on.

          • JMP

            No, I know that “zionist” is a term that used to have a real meaning about an actual ideology but has been appropriated by neo-Nazi idiots to use as an generic anti-Semitic insult together with their idiotic conspiracy theories about Jewish people secretly controlling the world.

          • ross

            Nope, you have been told this by MSM and have believed it because you are a simpleton.

            It is a party which is very much alive. Are the Rabbi’s protesting Zionism in Israel Anti-Semitic? You brainwashed little fool.

          • JMP

            Oh good, the troll uses an bullshit fake word used only as an insult against non-bigots, then goes ahead and uses an offensive slur against gay people. Gee, such a surprise to see that the lunatic conspiracy theorist defending the rapist Julian Assange is also a giant bigoted shithead!

          • ross

            I used an offensive slur :( :( :( :( :( I am sorry :( :(

          • JMP

            You fucking should be, but I don’t think you actually are.

          • ross

            I am not. you have been detected as an SJW, crybaby snowflake.
            You do not care about valid arguments, just mean words :( :(

          • JMP

            “SJW” and “snowflake”. Hey, I’ve won racist troll bingo!

          • ross

            No I had already won.

            “Bigot :( :(”

            You are a weak minded little pleb

          • eka

            omg, it’s been too long since somebody threw out the SJW stuff. and combining it with the concept of liberal tears, classic! you’re like archie bunker 3.0. i’m also a feminist, wanna hit me with some man-hating jabs or comments about my husband being a cuck?

            one serious comment: what we’ve achieved in the last years has made it clear that it is possible to move forward. marriage rights, getting closer to a decent health care system, voting in people who make education a priority … we can do stuff if we believe in government and work to elect decent people. sure, citizens united made it clear that we as individuals who already struggled to have influence would have an even harder time. but we’re up for the fight. and we will get shit done.

          • ross

            Nope, there are a wealth of videos already available showing how comical your whole group is. I need not bother.

            As for the rest of your comment…Wow, is someone paying you to say that? And I see people saying that a lot in here in jest…However I am deadly serious here, is someone paying you?

            You cannot be that naive about politics surely? I beg you, look into the truth of American politics…Please.

          • eka

            wait are you saying somebody is willing to pay me? shit, i’m going to keep my mouth shut until you get me in touch with these people.

            Just kidding, I’ll keep talking because I think you’re full of shit, Archie.

          • eka

            The truth of american politics? Sure, it’s ugly. But all of politics is ugly. Most of politics is oligarchy. I mean, isn’t that why Plato hated democracy? But Aristotle considered it less evil because sure, monarchy is great if you get a good king. But it’s hell if you get a bad one and the odds are not great. So yeah, government is ugly. It’s why we have to pay attention and fight for everything.

            I remember often a conversation I had with an anarchist when I was … oh, 20, 21 something like that. He was a big muscley guy who asked me to sing for his metal band even though I can’t sing. It was more for the look, he said, I just had to scream a lot. So that type. And we talked about government and he made it clear that he preferred state of nature. Everyone on his or her own. And obviously the fact that he was physically able to control others was significant. I asked what would happen to someone like me. I’m stronger than most, but am not violent and certainly weaker than that type. Also, guns freak me out. He had no answer.
            Or none that he was willing to say.

            Because I think a lot of anarchist men think that women should just become their sex slaves and that solves the issue of either not having great physical power or not having violent inclinations.

            So, fuck, whatever, I just wouldn’t want to live in such a world. And I hear you bitch about government, but what would you want instead? I certainly don’t want a dictatorship. So I’m happy with the hodge-podge democracy we have. I don’t see any decent alternatives.

        • JMP

          Oh, and a quick look at this troll’s profile show him to be a truly crazy one. Here’s one comment: “You probably think Oswald killed the man in your display picture..” Yes, he’s a fucking JFK truther, one so crazy he thinks it’s an insult to say that you probably accept the proven fact that Kennedy was killed by Lee Harvey Oswald and not some asinine made up conspiracy. Oh, and he appears to actually believe Pizzagate was a real thing, and uses the non-word “sheeple” seriously.

          We’re dealing with one of the truly disembrained here. Please, go back to Infowars or whatever lunatic asylum you call home.

          • ross

            Yes I am.
            I am not even going to bother with a response to such a close minded idiot.
            If you think the president, and his brother who ran, where both murdered by lone gunmen then you are truly lost. Learn about politics. Learn about the truth. The CIA killed JFK.
            Look up the miracle bullet. Look up eye witness testimony. You mindless little drone.

          • WomanInTheResistance

            It lied. Quelle surprise.

          • JMP

            Yeah, the “truth”, sure. And this one was actually calling people “sheeple” for noting that there is no such thing as a pedophile ring run out of a random pizza joint in Washington.

          • ross

            Again, all you have done is revealed how PAINFULLY misinformed you are. Did you see CBS article today? Are you aware of global paedophile cirlces? Are you aware of their influence in the UK?

            Or have you just read MSM garbage and went DURR DATS IMPOSSIBLE! DAT IS SO SILLY! look into it or shut up. People like you are the reason the world is in the state it is.

          • JMP

            Hahahaha. Yeah, I’m misinformed because I dismiss crazy nonsense for the made-up bullshit it is.

            Quite frankly, I’d make fun of this one by suggesting he probably thinks that global warming isn’t real, that vaccines cause autism, that the moon landing was faked and that the Earth is flat – but he probably actually does believe all that bullshit. Hell, he already admitted to believing that Pizzagate was real and that someone who wasn’t Oswald killed Kennedy!

          • ross

            Yes you are misinformed. Thank you for confirmation.

            Factual statement.

          • ross

            I understand for those under a rock the real world is frightening. They would rather MSNBC…FOX…CNN…tell them what is real.

    • Unspeakable Deeds

      I would honestly like to know why you are here?

      I mean, you’re not going to get any constructive arguments by talking down to others and telling people they are idiots, so the only real option left is you’re just trolling.

      • ross

        I couldn’t resist after seeing the quality of comment on this thread, I was truly shocked at how retarded the general commenter was. I apologise if my rudeness was a turnoff for my information….But man, just look at the comments…Wow.

        I arrived here as everyday I type in “wikileaks” into bing, sort by most recent, and then sift through to find the good articles and the ridiculous nonsense.

        When looking at the ridiculous nonsense I arrived at this article, and was foolish enough to comment.

        • Lizzietish81

          That’s pretty sad actually.

          And you use bing and call us “retarded”?

          • ross

            I am sorry…how stupid are you?
            All that does is filter news stories from ALL publications you chump. Get a clue.

          • Lizzietish81

            Says the guy who has nothing better to do than search for people saying mean things about Wikileaks.

          • ross

            I care about what is real and not. So yes…I research things.

            But thank you for commenting, as you have revealed just how stupid and misinformed you are.
            I am guessing from the rest of the comments I have encountered that every reader of this website is equally as misinformed. A shame.

          • Lizzietish81

            Research? Weird sounds more like trolling.

          • ross

            I read this article then left a post, only to be mobbed by mindless zombies.

            I encountered this god awful page while doing research, yes.

            Also why do the chumps on this page not realise what trolling is? Having a different view point is not trolling you are aware right?

          • Lizzietish81

            No, but purposely looking for people who disagree with you so you can call them stupid seems pretty trollish to me.

            Not at all like Research, I think you’re living in denial.

            That isn’t what I did.
            I read this “article” as I wanted to see if it was Propaganda or not. Sadly it is just the recipients of propaganda spouting government talking points.

            So scouring the internet daily for all news sources under a certain topic is not research? Open that tiny mind of yours. And try some big girl research.

        • JMP

          What’s the ridiculous nonsense? The fact is that wikileaks is an idiot outfit that Vladimir Putin has managed to turn into propaganda for fascism, the founder is a fucking rapist creep, and anyone who still defends that hideous organization is either themselves a giant racist fascist or one of the biggest morons in the world.

          • ross

            About that…I was a little tempted to point out to you above, where you proudly identified your place of work, that the Scottish BT HR department might be interested in what you’re up to to while supposed work.
            After your use of “retarded” as an insult, I have a feeling it might be more up the the alley of the Scottish police. The new British hate speech laws are supposedly rather strict, from what one hears and reads.

        I can see from the style and content of the arguments made here that this is not the case.

        The pathetic apologists really love this kind of “You will take what we give you” posturing, I see it all over the place. They want to fawn on and identify with the people dishing it out, without understanding that that puts them in the position of receiving it. Longing for authoritarianism isn’t exactly a position of power, dickwads.

        Ouch my feelings :( :( :(

    • Lefty Frizzell

      If we are all pathetic liberal fanboys and stupid, spoon-fed, deluded idiots who are asleep, why the fuck would we message a Russian agent like you? Get a grip man!

      • ross

        Again, I am Scottish.
        repeating something does not make it true. It is handy for me to be Russian, as it confirms your fictional story.

        • Lefty Frizzell

          Again, if you were a Russian agent, you would say that.

          • ross

            We can play this pathetic game forever.

            I am currently sitting in my job at BT in Aberdeen, Scotland.

            And I am currently laughing at all you gender fluid Hillary fanboys. You really have no idea what is going on at all do you now?

          • Lefty Frizzell

            Indeed, but you can’t convince me you’re not a Russian agent, so who’s laughing now?

          • ross

            You are a Russian agent. You love Putin.

          • Lefty Frizzell

            Now you’re just projecting – we’ve already established that you’re the Russian agent.

          • ross

            I am sorry I do not debate with Russian bots.

          • Lefty Frizzell

            What are you doing then?

          • ross

            Pardon?

          • Lefty Frizzell

            Granted

          • efoveks

            BT should fire you for time theft.

    • You are not Russian agent who is too buys to stroll

      • ross

        oops, a silly goof. That certainly has made me look foolish especially considering what I was saying. However the fact remains, now do you want to discuss something?

    Wikileaks can do no wrong, amirite?

    “WikiLeaks posted medical files of rape victims and children, investigation finds”

    https://www.theguardian.com/media/2016/aug/23/wikileaks-posts-sensitive-medical-information-saudi-arabia

    The whistleblowing site WikiLeaks has published the sensitive personal data of hundreds of ordinary people, including sick children, rape victims and people with mental health problems, an investigation has revealed.

    In the past year alone, the “radical transparency” organization has published medical files belonging to scores of ordinary citizens. Hundreds more have had sensitive family, financial or identity records posted to the web, according to the Associated Press.

    In two cases, WikiLeaks named teenage rape victims.

      I just got to point out, again, that the only thing Wikileaks are known to have redacted is documentation proving Russian involvement in massive fraud in Syria.

    If you didn’t want to be called a rapist, Julian, then you shouldn’t have taken repeatedly taken off condoms and forced women to have sex with you while risking VD and pregnancy, you creep.

  • Incoming (AKA Large) Ham

    That’s rich. Being accused of libeling a guy who has spent his time libeling other people. He has editorialized on everything he has released.

  • GHERKINS OF RESTIVENESS!

    Who cares about Assange’s legal threats?

    The Feculent Container Consortium© may intend to seek legal recompense. Turdsacks, Shitbags and Crapwagons alike feel they are being defamed and libeled by being intentionally associated with that gelatinous sea-slug rapist, by the words in this article.

  • Lizzietish81

    I just checked out our new pal’s posting history.

    Looks like he did his “research” and believed in Pizzagate.

    eta; Also he claims that Syria invaded Russia and shows a bit of misogyny.

    • bobbert

      Yeah. Blocked.

    • alwayspunkindrublic

      Misogyny is a valued trait among Assange shitsuckers.

    • andyshelt

      He also claims to be a worker for BT (British Telecom) and has claimed at numerous times in this thread to be posting his RWNJ nutjob drivel while supposedly at work.

      As someone who has experienced the poor customer service that BT is famous for in the UK that is probably the only bit of his bullshit that actually rings true!!

  • capnkrunch

    Colin! Good for you. And ps, PLEASE COME BACK TO WONKETTE! Thrillist is useless! We promise to submit tons of stories and lots of comments (and we will mock the idiot trolls). We would even crownfund to make up whatever salary you would need. I’m sure I’m not the only one who misses you!!!

    • phoenix00

      I miss CA too. OTM/BCO hasn’t been anywhere near the same since it left.

  • JMP

    I go away for a bit, and come back to see no new comments – did ross finally get the banning he so richly deserves?

    • WomanInTheResistance

      Same here. It seems strangely quiet.

      • JMP

        Sadly, checking out notifications he’s still active – apparently it’s just Disqus being weird again.

        • WomanInTheResistance

          So if a troll howls in the woods, and nobody can hear it, did it make a sound?

    • More_Cowbell

      I feel like BT in Aberdeen didn’t get its money’s worth out of employee Ross today.

    • efoveks

      He didn’t seem to have much steam. Low energy. Pathetic. Weak and sad.

  • I Am Helpy

    This article is the best. 5/5 stars.

  • eka

    I’d just like to make one small correction – you are as much a journalist as anyone else out there, because I think journalist nowadays just means “someone who says stuff publicly”. but maybe you do a bit too much research to qualify as a real journalist, so give that up, okay?

  • handyhippie65

    awww, did the big bad mr. pinkham hurt the widdew fee fees of the poor cowardly rapist? can we give you a medal or something for your service to humanity? i’d buy you a drink if i could.

  • Celtic_Gnome

    Wow! This is even better than a recipe.

    • But it was! It was a recipe for all the bag of salted rat dicks the organization can eat. An CA Pinkham made sure that they got SERVED (that was nice of him)!

  • WomanInTheResistance

    So has our new friend finally flounced out for real? What an ultramaroon.

  • Last Hussar

    Going to part ways with you here. UK libel law is often too harsh,but the general direction is preferable, in that the person making the statement should be able to back it up. Part of this is because you can’t prove a negative.

    Doc Zoom is a rapist. Hills runs a child porn ring. Barry is a Muslim . all of those are untrue, but you can’t prove they are lies.

    Julian Assange is accused of rape. True
    He refuses to stand trial. True
    This because the US will grab him. Only according to him and his supporters

    Try this.
    Assange isn’t a rapist. The women are paid by the CIA. In method and crack. They have sex with anybody to fund their drug habit. Why is that less valid?

    Personally I think the guy is a twat. Some stuff was right to release, where governments axct illegally. Other stuff just harmed the west for no reason,such as private conversations about foreign politicians.

    Anonymous on the other hand are always cunts

    • Ross

      I would not class the Pizzagate part of your argument as untrue just yet..

  • Panika MCD

    a) technically, the federal defamation law is so lax that you’d pretty much have to be the Grande Detour ruining the reputation of one of your contractors that you didn’t fucking pay for it to apply. most of the laws regarding libel in the country which are applicable are in individual state statutes. and the little matter of Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act makes it even more difficult to prosecute libel online.

    b) still, the point is well taken that the statement included your opinion and that it was based on other publications which ASSange hasn’t seen fit to sue from inside the Ecuadorian Embassy (which is treating him like the worst house guest ever because: he *probably* is).

    c) I don’t think he’s willing to “gleefully plunge the world into chaos just because Papa Putin tells him to”. I think he’s willing to do so just for shits and giggles. “rape a woman”, “rape the entire world”–what’s the difference if your name is “ASSange”?

    d) speaking of acting recklessly without regard to the facts–wouldn’t publishing whatever your Russian handler sends along qualify?

    e) finally, nuisance lawsuits work a whole lot better when it’s a shit ton of ’em against one entity that are easier to settle than to deal with individually. filing a bunch of bullshit lawsuits against a bunch of private citizens doesn’t usually work so well because even if a small number of the defendants stand up to them, the plaintiff is fucked.

    Just wondered how confident you feel about that libel lawsuit now Sweden dropped its investigation in May, and the UK Crown Prosecution Service has just admitted destroying all correspondence with the Swedish prosecutor requested under FOIA?
