Assange: great troll or greatest troll?

Now Rand Paul and Drudge will have to decide to accept the praise or denounce him.

Ok, trolling America is one thing. But endorsing the Drudge Report? There's only one thing to do about that.

FloridaFarkTag: What Assange is really that most Americans are too ignorant to realize Democrat and Republican parties are not really different...when it comes to many issues they agree on the same thing

Look at all the things Obama is doing that Bush did

Like breath, drink water, and put on pants.

Granted Obama puts his pants on his legs and not on his head, but why split hairs?

The important question is, will Assange teach Drudge post-1993 web site design techniques?

if_i_really_have_to: anfrind: I don't recall if it's technically an oath, but before granting access to classified information, the government does make you sign an agreement that you will protect that information for as long as you live.

Maybe, shockingly, Bradley Manning actually took his oath seriously.  The one that says he "will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic".

What's sad to me is that clearly the American armed forces and intelligence community has a very large number of people who can see illegal, unconstitutional things happen every day and say nothing.  I would call them the gutless traitors.

There you have it, folks. The U.S. Military: millions of traitors surrounded by one hero.

It was never clear to me why a douchebag like Assange had so many white knights on Fark in the first place (other than Fark tends to be somewhat nutjobby too.)  But the wingnut cognitive dissonance is rather bemusing.

Assange steals and reveals private banking records and government emails:  Wingnut reaction - "Assange is a hero!!!!"

Assange compliments a republican: Wingnut reaction - "Assange is a crazy trolling nutjob!!!!"

I don't know if that's an epic facepalm or a lol.

SenorBenedict: I'm still at a loss as to what Snowden told us that we didn't already know about. I mean fark sake Swordfish a movie that came out in 2001 had a plot point about the NSA reading your emails.

*THAT* is what you remember about Swordfish? Nothing else? Imma give you a hint, and phrase it in the style of J.K. Rowling to help you understand: 'Halle Berry And The Bosom Of Symmetry."

I'm tired of only insane people making the news.

Just because you open your mouth the widest and most often,
doesn't mean you should dominate the news cycle.

When will rational thought and good ideas become a commodity in the media???

/it's a rhetorical question...I already know the answer.

dtrfa but if Assange is seriously endorsing either Paul, he is a bigger ignorant asshole than previously imagined.

Rand Paul, the guy that "filibustered" drones and then came out in favor of drone strikes for liquor store robbers.  The guy's a complete fraud.

I was a college libertarian.  I attended a speech by Harry Browne in 2000 and donated to the campaign.  I live in Kentucky so before anyone says so, no I did not cost Gore the presidency.  I knew a local libertarian, he was my then-girlfriend's mom's boyfriend.  He grew pot on his big farm, and it was really good.  He was also a gun nut.  Shooting his Tommy gun is one of my favorite memories of those days.  Then I grew up and realized that "get the government out of our lives" was really only an economic slogan for the prosperous, and that the disadvantaged don't want to get the government out of their lives.  So now I'm a lefty-libby-liberson.  I have yet to start my own anarcho-communist syndicate.
