Can’t believe vaguely intelligent people on here regurgitating the establishment spin on Assange verbatim. Makes me really scratch my head.

If it's all politics you'd have to believe that the victims were politically motivated from the start.

Nope, just the rape charges, which the women did not ask for, that was political. A decision made by higher ranking people in the Swedish establishment to smear an enemy of the US. It's worked very well.

He won't be extradited if he faces the death penalty but 10,000 years in a gulag is just fine.

I'm firmly in the Ash Sarkar camp on this one (and most stuff, it seems):

I'd tend to go with this. He's a narcissistic piece of shit and if he had any respect for women he wouldn't have found himself in this mess, but that shouldn't colour anyone's view on the disgraceful behaviour of the authorities, or the implications for whistleblowing and press freedom. This is a pretty good example of how nuance is being cast aside by both sides in an increasingly binary atmosphere of debate.

Couldn't even be bothered to have a shave before the awaiting police and press.

That's not a real beard. It's a narrative device. 7 years have passed.

We shouldn't extradite any citizen, full stop, and foreign nationals should not be sent to countries that have an extradition treaty with states with barbaric penal systems and/or political repression. Last I read, NZ is selling out Kim Dotcom too.

I wonder if his feelings about being arrested are tinged with gladness about finally being out of that fucking Embassy. I suppose the alternative looks worse but he may avoid being extradited to the US or if he is, maybe old Cheeto will pardon him and fuck the optics.

This confirms it:

Quote
UPDATE: Julian Assange has been further arrested in relation to an extradition warrant on behalf of the United States authorities. He remains in custody at a central London police station.

Nothing to do with the minor bail charges, or the rape allegations. It's about the US Empire getting revenge on a journalist that inconvenienced them, by sticking him in a torture prison for the rest of his life. This is the kind of shit that happens in authoritarian regimes, yet the UK press, who constantly cry crocodile tears about press freedom, have been cheerleading for it all the same.

I heard that journalists in Russia sometimes go to prison. And musicians. Can't be true though or you'd be right upset about it.

Crocodile tears. Ha.

How come the guardian arent been extradited to a USA torture prison? They were Assange's partners on the initial most damaging wikileaks stuff, so if he's guilty so are they. Can we not get Luke Harding locked up in Guantanamo?

But...but...The Guardian says it's bad.

https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2019/apr/09/the-guardian-view-on-julian-assange-it-would-be-wrong-to-extradite-him

I know, it makes no sense. The Guardian are evil,its been declared earlier in the thread.

I hope he ends up In Sweden, not the USA.

This has taught me one thing though, even if you go out of your way to help Trump like left-wing hero Asaange, he won't do anything to help you. It's almost as if he's not a loyal friend. Who knew?
