Julian Assange’s Great Escape

After a  bit of mainstream  media  speculation yesterday,  whether Julian Assange was  about to surrender to British police due to ill health , Assange himself made a statement that he will soon walk out of the Ecuadorian  embassy for “other” reasons than the ones given by the media . The British extradition laws have changed, but do apparently  not apply to previous cases, so it doesn’t appear that the British goverment will let him walk out officially. So what is the story?

 Not that we want to give anything away, but   it seems, what Assange is really planning is a good old fashioned “jailbreak!!”

Here is a list of previous suggestions :http://eduncovered.com/trapped-in-the-closet-10-ways-for-julian-assange-to-exit-the-ecuadorian-embassy-2012-08-17

It probably won’t be one of those. Maybe they did build a tunnel with a spoon that leads directly to Ecuador and teleportation is always an option too, but I’m guessing that it will be a surprise, a plot with many twists involving, amongst others, Edward Snowden and German Chancellor Angela Merckel.

If it happens, remember, you read it here first , not on Boing Boing and not in The Age via Boing Boing either…

Good luck, Julian, we wish we could drive the getaway car !

Assange hung out to dry by the left

Assange meme tagged

So hanving been sold out by a carefully managed implosion of his wiki leaks party, all over whether preferences were going to go to the left or right, It’s pretty fair to say Assange has been used and discarded by the left for apparently failing one of their claimed moral standards. Sure all the sex allegation stuff was carefully put  in a memory hole while he was hot property, along with he fact he acted like a bit of a heart breaker when women were literally throwing themselves at him. But that’s the left and feminism for you, they love a bad boy and then want to scream a blue murder (or rape) when the sour grapes arrive. I mean he really should have known that being a white male is toxic commodity to leftists and they were primed to drop him like a stone when a small amount of heat came on.

So all this bullshit about principles ( free speech, transparency, political freedom, commitment….) it all goes out the window when the next bandwagon arrives. So what can we do now for Assange?

The Australian government has left him out in the cold, despite the fact they are right now willing to send 50 police and ATSB to war torn Ukraine to look for Australian body parts and stolen luggage, But a living Australian citizen in a friendly country with a politically hot legal hassle, nope.

So apart form beating the drum and producing memes that might get stuck on an Ecuadorean embassy fridge in London, lets look and some overlooked facts about Assange.

I can almost feel a man cringing at a laptop reading and thinking “Oh shit, what’s this gonna be”.

Julian Assange was born on July 3 1971, the same day Jim Morrison died. Strangely there are more connections and similarities.

Morrison was born in a place called Melbourne (Florida) and left in order to study, later becoming a famous counterculture icon. Morrison famously fled the US to Europe (France) escaping a contrived court case.

Assange moved to place called Melbourne (Victoria) to study, later becoming a counterculture icon. Assange famously fled from Europe (Sweden) to the UK to escape a contrived US prosecution.

Both had in common:

  • Had transient childhoods and continued traveling as adults.
  • Born during foreign wars their countries were involved in, Morrison: WW2, Assange: Vietnam.
  • Well read, serious, intelligent drop outs, critical of war.
  • Were described as rock stars and had love children.
  • Were applauded/hounded for the ideas they promoted.
  • Were politically minded and spoke of their concern for the present and future.
  • Were known to ham it up for the camera occasionally.

Morrison in his later years, even after all that booze and drugs makes a remarkable prediction. (That hair is real)

Assange in his early 40’s showing the prediction is true and having a bit of a giggle. (That is a wig)

Sweden Extradites Activist

Wikileaks consultant and Pirate Bay co-founder Gottfrid “Anakata” Svartholm has been extradited to Sweden for charges he was aquitted of in his home country. If there was any doubt that Sweden would extradite Assange to the USA, once he was held in Sweden on false rape charges, this has now been dispelled. Sweden has proven with it’s actions, that it wants to crack down hard on activists.

Seemed like an appropriate addition.
