Prominent people who are OK with murdering Julian Assange.
RUSH LIMBAUGH
(Right-wing radio talk show host)
"This guy Assange could have been stopped, come on, folks. People have been shot for far less than this."

"(laughing) Ah, folks, even Greg Palkot of Fox News interviewed Assange, which means that Roger Ailes knows where he is. Ailes knows where Assange is. Give Ailes the order and there is no Assange, I'll guarantee you, and there will be no fingerprints on it."

"Back in the old days when men were men and countries were countries, this guy would die of lead poisoning from a bullet in the brain."

WILLIAM KRISTOL
Editor of the Weekly Standard)
"Why can't we act forcefully against WikiLeaks? Why can't we use our various assets to harass, snatch or neutralize Julian Assange and his collaborators, wherever they are?"

G. GORDON LIDDY
(Former White House Adviser, talk show host)
"This fellow Anwar al-Awlaki a joint U.S. citizen hiding out in Yemen is on a 'kill list' . Mr. Assange should be put on the same list."

DEROY MURDOCK
(Columnist for National Review)
"If convicted, should be placed against a wall and executed by firing squad. (If extradited here, Assange deserves the same sendoff.)"

SARAH PALIN
(Former US Vice Presidential Candidate)
"Julian Assange should be targeted like the Taliban"

THOMAS FLANAGAN
former advisor to Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper)
"I think Assange should be assassinated, actually. (laughs) I think Obama should put out a contract or use a drone or something. I wouldnt feel happy, uh, unhappy, if Assange disappeared."

BOB BECKEL
(FOX News commentator)
"A dead man can't leak stuff...This guy's a traitor, he's treasonous, and he has broken every law of the United States. And I'm not for the death penalty, so...there's only one way to do it: illegally shoot the son of a bitch."

ERIC BOLLING
(FOX News commentator)
" should be underground -- six feet underground. ... He should be put in jail or worse, hanged in a public forum."

TODD SCHNITT
(Radio Host)
"ASSANGE IS A TERRORIST, AN ENEMY COMBATANT, AND NEEDS TO BE TREATED AS SUCH, SCHNITT HAS SAID REPEATEDLY ON HIS PROGRAM WHICH AIRS WEEKDAYS FROM 3:00pm-6:00pm EST."

JEFFREY KUHNER
(Washington Times columnist)
"Headline: Assassinate Assange? Body: Julian Assange poses a clear and present danger to American national security ... The administration must take care of the problem - effectively and permanently."

JOHN HAWKINS
(Far-right blogger)
"Julian Assange is not an American citizen and he has no constitutional rights. So, there's no reason that the CIA can't kill him. Moreover, ask yourself a simple question: If Julian Assange is shot in the head tomorrow or if his car is blown up when he turns the key, what message do you think that would send about releasing sensitive American data?"

RALPH PETERS
(U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel and author)
"Julian Assange is a cyber terrorist in wartime, he's guilty of sabotage, espionage, crimes against humanity -- he should be killed, but we won't do that."

"I do not believe in leaks. I would execute leakers. They're betraying our country."

STEVE GILL
Right-wing Nashville radio host)
"Folks like Julian Assange should be targeted as terrorists. They should be captured and kept in Guantanamo Bay, or killed."

5. actually, it is a little bit frightening that they are so smug, and so secure in their blatant calls
for murder, knowing they will suffer no consequences.

29. IMHO, it happened when the Fairness Doctrine was abolished.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fairness_Doctrine

In August 1987, the FCC abolished the doctrine by a 4-0 vote, in the Syracuse Peace Council decision, which was upheld by a different panel of the Appeals Court for the D.C. Circuit in February 1989.<14> The FCC also suggested that because of the many media voices in the marketplace, the doctrine be deemed unconstitutional, stating that:

The intrusion by government into the content of programming occasioned by the enforcement of restricts the journalistic freedom of broadcasters ... actually inhibits the presentation of controversial issues of public importance to the detriment of the public and the degradation of the editorial prerogative of broadcast journalists.

33. It also says a lot about the lack of a justice system in this country
And who we are. If there were no support, even minimal, they would not be doing it.

4. America is
America is a nation based on laws and principals. Said principals seem to be devolving into the laws of wild animals.

Secondly, in any major international news story, there's onion-like layers of news. Amazing that so many public figures support stuff right out of Hitler or Stalin's playbook without a full observation from many news sources. (Which has always been DU for me as far as bona fide news with journalism and all that, peeling off the corporate propaganda veneer in all American MSM.

I think they aren't loving America correctly in this case. They should all publicly reverse their statements, and instead support freedom of the press and the role a free press constitutionally plays in keeping our country a beacon of hope and liberty for the world. A quaint obsolete notion I still cling to.

17. "Said principals seem to be devolving into the laws of wild animals."
Welcome back to the State of Nature, that thing that Useful Government was designed to protect against the worst elements of.
What's funny to me, is that the people who seem most easily to pine for the State of Nature (where the strongest, fittest, and smartest survive, and the weak fail-- see the dictionary entry for RANDIAN FREE MARKET ECONOMICS lol) are the first people in line to deny the Scientific Reality of Evolution of Species and Natural Selection.
MY problem with this is that I don't know how to fight with the WILLINGLY stupid...

14. Assholes they are, but
"Bullies" is a word that is too reminiscent of only playground mobsters. The aforementioned MFs are better described, perhaps, as sociopathic functionaries in our New World Ordered.


Just a thought, as Atlas Shrugs.

15. Bob Altemeyer would call these people authoritarians. I choose to call them bullies.
They are no different than the bullies on the playground. They are cowards and pick on the weak.

26. These are the same people who, if given half a chance, would
readily line up to put the Hispanics, Blacks, Jews and other 'undesireables' in some 'safe place', maybe like 'concentrate them'.

Torture in this country is okay
Killing people because they are on a list
Rampant fraud is okay
Lying is okay
Stealing is okay

All these things are okay if you are a republican or rich.....

19. Ha! As if it's solely "the Republicans"...
"All these things are okay if you are a republican or rich....."

Oh, wake up and smell the coffee! The Democrats are behind everything you listed as well. Or did you miss the fact that Obama still holds the un-Constitutional 'rights' he inherited from Bush? Like the right to appoint anybody an 'enemy combatant' and have them assassinated? Or the fact that 'extraordinary rendition' is still going on, years after Bush left office (was implemented by Clinton, by the way). And lying? Didn't Obama promise the people a 'public option'?

(Just a few examples. Don't think I'm wrong when you have addressed those few points.)

10. So reciprocally I guess it's okay to advocate murdering the people listed in the OP
Edited on Mon Dec-27-10 03:52 PM by valerief
Is that how it works? If A says to murder B, then B can say to murder A. Of course, B doesn't have the bully pulpit A has.

11. Interesting
We all agree protesting en masse is useless due to the MSM black outs.

I wonder if applying SECOND AMENDMENT SOLUTIONS to the above wing nuts would afford the national voice of dissent that has been effectively doused by the PTB?

I'm just brainstorming. And I just delight that the term SECOND AMENDMENT SOLUTIONS has found it's way into my violently overthrow the government bag of tricks.

:sarcasm: :sarcasm: :sarcasm: :sarcasm: :sarcasm:

DISCLAIMER - I'm being facetious, which I hope is an even lower form of humor than sarcasm. I prefer MLK's peace and love tactics, especially since I saw a recent Hendrix bio that said Jimi gave MLK money and supported him.

16. You forgot to include the VP, Joe Biden who stated that
wilileaks are more like 'cyber terrorists'. Considering Bush's new laws making it possible for the President to issue an order to assassinate anyone he declares to be an enemy, that was a pretty scary statement coming from Biden. He should be ashamed of himself.

how can he be doing anything treasonous? How can what he is doing be against the law?

30. Aren't these people terrorists? Are they not guilty of inciting murderous claims? Are they not
aware of the rule of law?  Of Freedom of Speech?  That Assange
is at the top, but Wikileaks is powered to keep going no
matter what?  They they need to be exposed and their agendas
weakened?  That they are hiding the crimes behind a wall of
press people who will be killed if they don't do what they
are told?  Do they realize they undermine the constitution,
the declaration of independence, and the Bill of rights with
these stupid statements?

Fire them all for treason against our Democracy.

It's hilarious that these blowhards are known for their conspiracy theories, but when someone blows the lid off the very government they claim to mistrust... HE MUST DIE!!!
