"I’m a conservative… I’m a big fan of [Donald] Trump, big fan of Bojo (Boris Johnson), but I’m a bigger fan of a free press – they’re the fundamentals of democracy – and they’re clearly under attack when it comes to the Julian Assange case. “There’s a lot of Australians who think Julian Assange is a rat bag.

Julian Assange: Australian MPs call on UK to block US extraditionPoliticians from WikiLeaks founder’s home country have flown to UK to visit him in jail Assange is an actual whistleblower. Democrats are only mad at him because he exposed Democrats dirty deeds. People are so damn delusional to call this man a bad guy. The media and government did the same exact thing to Snowden. Shame. Personally I would like to see him pay back everybody who lost money , then pay back the British government for policing during his stay at the embassy, then his prison costs, then the two women he raped and then after that l dump him in Sweden Assange is a criminal.
