Little Julian, just as trustworthy as our Julia, is boring news, except when he does something particularly weird to attract the media attention. For example, not long ago the self-styled fighter for freedom of speech hid in the Equadorian embassy in London to avoid extradition to Sweden. Naturaly, the Left media approve and admire his heroism. The fact that the socialist rulers of Equador are supressing free speech and jail opponents, that Sweden is a democratic country, that America, if she were so minded, could just as well try to extradite him from Great Britain (similar legal system and similar language would help), that he is investigated for sex crimes punishable in most Western countries and that the normally vociferous feminists are strangely silent [Fog of Chaos – Pink brigade] is not here nor there. Assange is or rather was sticking it to the Main Enemy a.k.a the Great Satan and thus deserves the Left’s adulation and the „get out of jail“ card.
Now comes the Spanish ex-judge Baltasar Garzon to his rescue, and if not to the rescue at least to the footlights of the Great Socialist Theatre of Absurd. They have a lot in common. Both are unprincipled egomaniacs and publicity cravers, totally dismissive of the damage their actions do to the other human beings and sometimes even to the cause they ostensibly espouse. They brandish two Left wings and the moral camouflage plumage; shiny enough to attract the bird brains of the opposite sex in red light and yet sufficiently dull for journalists. They both deride Britain’s and Sweden’s legal systems (and in Garzon’s case Spain’s) and prefer such Latin American bastions of democracy as Argentina, Cuba and Ecuador.
Señor Garzon is a jurist of the moral fibre comparable to that of our Brombergs and Finkelsteins and managed to attract attention of the Fog of Chaos already three times: Another Left hero & Justice on trial & Justice discontinued. He does not seem to be much of an expert on sexual crimes or Swedish criminal justice system but human rights of the leftists are supposed to be his forte:
“There is clear political intentionality behind this affair, which explains his current situation,” added Garzón. “Obviously this is not just about his future but his physical and psychological stability and it is only right that Assange should be protected by the same rights as those of any other citizen.
Assange has not rebelled against any jurisdiction, given that he respects the action of the law, but he – and we – are seriously worried about what will happen to him because his situation is becoming political as a result of the great work done by his organisation when it comes to denouncing corruption. That cannot be the reason for a judicial process that appears, and which I believe we can show, is arbitrary and totally baseless,” he stated, according to the Cadena SER radio station.
“It does not seem right that a single person should be under such pressure from governments,” referring to both Sweden and Britain. “I believe that Assange … is in a situation that is an attack on his human rights.“
Well, maybe it is not his forte or maybe it is just an incompetent translation.
I would not dare to attempt to diagnose anyone on the basis of second-hand information, but I have to admit that after reading the Left pseudo-intellectual Robert Manne’s article in the Left The Monthly I almost came to the conclusion that Julian Assange is a psychopath, perhaps with some autism thrown in. Recall his actions, consider the definition and judge yourselves:
Psychopathy – from the Ancient Greek ψυχή “psyche”, -soul, mind and πάθος, “pathos” -suffering, disease, condition) is a personality disorder that has been variously described as characterized by shallow emotions (in particular reduced fear), stress tolerance, lacking empathy, coldheartedness, lacking guilt, egocentricity, superficial charm, manipulativeness, irresponsibility, nonplanfulness, impulsivity, and antisocial behaviors such as parasitic lifestyle and criminality.
Amongst his many betrayals so far the last one is his jumping of bail, (which does not show much respect for the actions of the law) that will cost his nine naïve surety providers £340,000. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2198072/Julian-Assanges-high-profile-backers-set-lose-340-000-bail-money-remains-holed-Ecuador-Embassy.html Of course, being Left means you are never sorry and some of them, rather than admit the fiscal rape, claim they enjoyed it.
Assange will betray Garzon just as everybody and everything else because that’s what psychopaths do. But do not feel sorry for him, unless you also wish to feel sorry for Ernst Röhm, so nastily betrayed by his national socialist comrade Adolf Hitler. Birds of feather…
