Liberals used to be counted on to defend basic civil liberties throughout the 20th, especially during the Cold War.
However, things have changed significantly in recent times. Liberal Democrats were completely silent after the British government ordered the extradition of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange to the United States, where he will face espionage charges. This move represented a major assault on journalists and likely sets dangerous precedents for journalists who dare to expose the national security state. Liberals pulled a Houdini act and were nowhere to be found when it came to defending civil liberties in this instance.
Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene assumed the call of defending free speech when Assange faces likely imprisonment, a move that surprised many onlookers.
Greene tweeted on June 17, 2022, “If we really care about the 1st Amendment then we should care about Julian Assange.
Freedom of Press is the protection of the ability to expose the truth and publish it.
This should always be protected and this freedom should always be handled with the most respect.” Greene mentioned the case of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, which involved the Saudi Royal family allegedly murdering him. This grisly incident has sparked outrage among the journalist class and liberal elites. However, these same people have not uttered a word about Assange’s case.
Greene called attention to that: If they are upset over the Khashoggi killing then they should be upset over Julian Assange. Is the American press afraid to speak out against the U.S. extradition of Julian Assange? Is it because it’s not another government prosecution or attack on a journalist but yet our own? Unlike her establishment colleagues, Greene understands that Assange is being punished because his work constitutes a major threat to the DC ruling class. In her final tweeted, she stated : The ruling regime in America persecutes […]
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
