Sarah Palin: Wanted Down Under

Robert Stary, Assange’s Melbourne-based lawyer, in an  interview published by  National Public Radio’s Morning Edition, stated:
“Our main concern is really the possible extradition to the US,” he said. “We’ve been troubled by the sort of rhetoric that has come out of various commentators and principally Republican politicians — Sarah Palin and the like — saying Mr. Assange should be executed, assassinated.”
Stary added: “Certainly if Sarah Palin or any of those other politicians come to Australia, for whatever purpose, then we can initiate a private prosecution, and that’s what we intend to do.”

Mike Huckabee, former Governor of Arkansas, 2012 Presidential hopeful, and current Fox News Political Evangelist, has also ordained that Julian Assange should be ‘executed.’  It doesn’t look like Huckabee’s cable show will be doing any location shoots at the Sydney Opera House.

Rep. Peter King(R-NY), and Mitch McConnell(R-KY), have both called for WikiLeaks, and Julian Assange, to be labeled terrorists so that they can use the existing anti-terror laws to ‘get them.’

America may be willing to tolerate the calls for violence by Palin, and others, but it seems as though not all may be so inclined.  The Aussies may finally be able to do exactly what so many Americans wish they could; shut Palin up.

    I don’t view Sarah Palin as not being an articulate person, and disagree with many of her policies. However, Ms. Palin is expressing her freedom of free speech that is protected under the American Constitution. It seems that some needs to compare and contrast what is different between America and their country. For one America does execute prisoners who have committed certain crimes.

      Are you referring to the war (and other) crimes of George W. Bush and Dick Cheney? Of course not, you are referring to Julian Assange. But let me ask you who are the victims of Assange so called “crimes”, expect for the powerful either individual or state players who insist in keeping a tight lid on the truth. Assange is bypassing the old (corporate controlled) media to bring the raw information to the people.

        It words were “execute prisoners.” Maybe the phrase should have been “have capital punishment.” Does, this relate to Julian Assange? No, it is just a fact of the American judicial system. Isn’t the discussion about Sarah Palin, and not the possible war crimes committed under the previous American administration.

        I do have complaints about the main stream media. It centers around the lack of genuine research they do on certain issues. The unwillingness to challenge certain claims and present their challenge with will researched.

        It is quite ironic that some condemn those under the First Amendment of the US constitution, while champion others under the same law. It is further ironic when the form case the individual is actually under the jurisdictional of the American Constitution, where the later isn’t.

        Assange isn’t guilty of publish confidential information. Any organization or individual has the right to investigate how their information has been obtained without their consent. This is where or not Assange has done it or some other organization.

        SCO Group vs. IBM
        Apple vs. Gizmodo/Jason Chen
        Assange desire to find out who leaked information about the charges against him.

        Assange isn’t bypassing the old media. First he has publishing partners. Second, the information is leaked to him. It is the accurate information that really matters.

    Forget Assange and his $1,500,000 corporate book deal (some rebel, what a sell-out), instead read a book that’s really been BANNED like “America Deceived II” by E.A. Blayre III.

      Wikileaks needs cash, more so now that the corporate establishment (particularly paypal and amazon) is trying to strangle off their funding. I say good for Assange for making some coin off this, he is doing a hero’s work, and maybe this will keep Wikileaks alive a bit longer.

    I agree 100%… someone needs to take a stand against Palin’s insanity and vulgar preachings of violent rhetoric. Assange sounds like just the guy to pull the trigger (pardon the pun.) I created a visual commentary about Palin’s role in the violence on my artist’s blog at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2011/01/sarah-palin-made-me-do-it.html Drop by and let me know what YOU think!
