28. When you have no argument you throw out a unsupported statement.

(1) Pussy Riot is not evading criminal arrest by Swedish police for a sex crime, they are wanted for a political prosecution in Russia.
(2) Assange has not been accused of a political crime in Russia, the U.S., or anywhere else, he is being accused of a sex crime in Sweden.

So there is no relationship between the two cases.

(3) I oppose his extradition to the U.S., but since the U.S. has never sought to extradite him, something they could have done while he was going through the court system in England if there were charges, which there are not, the whole notion that he is going to be extradited is a conspiracy theory, and one that Assange is pushes for his own benefit.

That is the difference.

He is just another libertarian who thinks he is above the law and will manipulate people who think he is some kind of saint.
