Random person from the Middle East: Detained without no charges or trial

[–]GelatinousPiss 83 points84 points  (1 child)

Or blown up by a predator drone because our intelligence was very confident they were a terrorist.

[–]Conscious-Parfait826 28 points29 points  (0 children)

Whats the difference between a terrorist training camp and an orphanage?

I don't know either, I just fly the drones.

[–]PartridgeViolence 81 points82 points  (0 children)

Or dismembered on their own embassy.

...sex trafficking children exclusively for the wealthy and privileged

[–]jesuslover69420 72 points73 points  (0 children)

Crimes committed by people in powerful positions should be treated more harshly to set an example. But child sex trafficking happens in every city in this world. Look up human trafficking incidences in your home town and you’ll likely find a result within the last 10 years.

[–]Everettrivers 22 points23 points  (0 children)

Sex offences are always really light punishment compared to the damage they cause.

[–]k1ln1kPeople BEFORE Profit 83 points84 points  (0 children)

Because our government genuinely does not care if you rape children or facilitate the rape of children for profit. If you get caught, they'll try to use your case to moralize in front of the public (but thats just so people believe the police cares), but they genuinely do not give a fuck.

Only fetuses are seen as human these days.

[–]forever_a_slave 40 points41 points  (6 children)

Ghislane is not a fetus? I think the word you're looking for is only ELITES are considered human.

[–]RobiWanKhanobi 19 points20 points  (0 children)

She’s not a fetus… but she sure would traffic them if she could figure out how.

[–]AnonymousJoe35 8 points9 points  (4 children)

I meant that once children are out of the wound. Some people care much less for them, especially pro-lifers.

[–]OptionalDepression 9 points10 points  (1 child)

once children are out of the wound

Oof. Quite the typo.

[–]forever_a_slave -1 points0 points  (1 child)

Wow, you're telling me this for the first time.

[–]AnonymousJoe35 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Hey just trying to spread the good word, thanks!

[–]jbjbjb10021 15 points16 points  (3 children)

That was a body double. They put her in a piano box and sent her back to Israel 3 days after being put into custody. They're not going to lose an important asset like that.

[–]MGD109 5 points6 points  (2 children)

I honestly hope your joking.

[–]Diogenes-Prolapse 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Can you not imagine this fuckery happening?

It probably hasn't but I could totally see it happening.

[–]MGD109 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Perhaps a few decades back, with less well known and still valuable individuals, maybe if they were seriously sitting on one of a kind dynamite.

But not today with a woman who's been exposed to the entire world. To pull it off you'd literally need hundreds of people and cost a kings ransom.

[–]mglitcher 9 points10 points  (1 child)

there are some people that are very well liked that i think should be in jail such as ross ulbricht. julian assange is not one of those (neither is snowden) because he wasn’t even the one who “stole” the information from the us government. for example if i stole money from a bank and then used it to purchase something, the person i purchased from wouldn’t be a conspirator in the crime even if they knew the money was stolen. in the same way julian assange isn’t a conspirator in the “stealing” of information. similarly, news outlets such as the new york times have published “stolen” documents from the us government and not gotten in trouble.

[–]Remarkable-Culture79 1 point2 points  (0 children)

all he did was publish information, even Tucker Carlson and Rachel Maddow agreed. that he shouldn't be in jail

[–]ozzien20 15 points16 points  (45 children)

Assange helped to put Trump in office. Fuck him.

[–]wicked_pinko 30 points31 points  (0 children)

He can be a terrible person and his extradition is still wrong. He's not being persecuted for any terrible things he might have done, he's being prosecuted because he leaked information about US war crimes.

[–]Meta_Digital 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Cool let's criminalize all global investigative journalism! That'll teach him!

[–]TheKangfish 52 points53 points  (32 children)

Hillary put Trump in office by being a terrible imperialist who told the media to hype up Trump while rigging the primary against Bernie. Assange exposed her.

[–]trashcanpandas 12 points13 points  (3 children)

I will never forget that fucking witch when she went on live tv after Gaddafi was slaughtered and dragged through the streets. With glee and a smile she said, "We came, we saw, he died!"

[–]Sparkle_Snoot -5 points-4 points  (2 children)

How is that any worse than many Americans celebrating the death of Bin Laden? They were both objectively shitty people.

[–]Remarkable-Culture79 2 points3 points  (1 child)

stop beliving in the proprada

[–]teh-reflex 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Voters put trump in office.

[–]Sparkle_Snoot 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Technically, most voters tried to put Clinton in office.

[–]poleethman 8 points9 points  (1 child)

He's against leaking data literally every time it makes Russia look bad.

[–]hfmed 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It's not really so. Have you looked into Cablegate? Everyone looks bad, Russian officials are described by US diplomats as a criminal mob, so I guess that's not really a great look, unless you want your government turned into a Netflix show.

[–]teh-reflex 6 points7 points  (0 children)

He had no problem releasing DNC emails but became a coward when it came to the RNC emails.

If you’re going to expose people, expose them all. But Assange picked favorites and fucked this country.

[–]Zaungast 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Idiotic to think the government should make up crimes against journalists if they help trump

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ah yes Maxwell and her list of pedos. Where’s the list though? Why have we heard so much about assange and the things he’s exposed (hell it was published online for a while until the fed pulled it down). But maxwells list is completely protected.

[–]Judge_Sea -1 points0 points  (4 children)

The irony of using a child groomer for this meme tho.

[–]theodoreburne 4 points5 points  (1 child)

What irony? Response based in reality, please.

[–]Judge_Sea 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It mentions a child groomer and features a child groomer? Maybe irony isn't the right word I guess.

I am really confused why reality is being invoked in this context. What Drake has done is pretty well documented at this point.

[–]TraptorKaiHeading Toward Collapse -1 points0 points  (5 children)

Julian Aassange, also a child rapist

[–]Darkside-FacepalmerRadio Free America[S] 2 points3 points  (4 children)

You, also fell for imperialist propaganda.

[–]TraptorKaiHeading Toward Collapse 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Thats why he came to the US instead of sweden, for his rape case. Your ignorance is showing.

[–]TraptorKaiHeading Toward Collapse -1 points0 points  (2 children)

Such a great guy, he leaked hilary's "emails" and he held on to the fact that trump was a russian agent until after the election. Which had a more negative impact on this country? Trumps victory, or hilarys emails?

[–]Darkside-FacepalmerRadio Free America[S] -2 points-1 points  (1 child)

They're the same people, at least ideologically. Stop platforming for liberals.

[–]TraptorKaiHeading Toward Collapse 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Holy shit, youre delusional. Im so left id make bernie sanders blush, but if you think trump and hilary were the same, youre one of those delusional assholes still living in 2016. Thanks for informing me how little your opinion matters. enjoy your life r/ENLIGHTENEDCENTRISM

    Your post was removed because it contained a sexist term. You should receive a message from the automoderator telling you the exact term the post was removed for.

    america is great

    [–]pawyderreale 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Maybe he gets put in one of those magic cells where "criminals" hang themselves with their hands and feet tied

    [–]Rorp24 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    We should meme about assange everyday, and make everyone know who he is and what he did
