The song ?Delilah? becomes the latest victim of the woke central planners. Aside from the sheer stupidity, and the deliberate ignoring of context, banning such songs is an attack on our harmless communal rituals.

Snowden warns that Assange extradition will lead free press to slaughterhouse as publisher’s critics blinded by partisanship

category international | rights, freedoms and repression | other press author Sunday September 20, 2020 19:50author by 1 of indy Report this post to the editors

The only thing is the mainstream folded it's tent long ago and stopped doing journalism and only does propaganda now

The US drive to extradite and prosecute Julian Assange poses a grave threat to journalists everywhere, but the publisher’s opponents have placed politics over principle, and even their own interests, said whistleblower Ed Snowden.

Due to the success of the smear campaign against Assange over the years Snowden has to speak defensively of him as per quotes below

“I think a lot of it comes down to people forgetting what principles are and why they're important,” Snowden said in an interview with Joe Rogan on Tuesday. “You can hate Julian Assange, you can think he's a puppet of Russia, you can think he's the worst person on Earth – a reincarnation of Hitler or Stalin – and still realize that convicting him harms you.”

“The US government… is trying to extradite this guy and put him in prison for the rest of his life for the best work that WikiLeaks ever did... which is the Iraq and Afghanistan War Logs, detainee records in Guantanamo Bay. Things that are about explicit war crimes and abuses of power,” the whistleblower went on, adding that Assange’s work with WikiLeaks spared no political party.

Assange faces an 18-count indictment and up to 175 years in a US prison, with most charges linked to “espionage” over his role in securing classified leaks from Army analyst Chelsea Manning. But his case marks a clear break with American legal precedent, which has traditionally distinguished journalists and publishers from their sources, a “dangerous” development which Snowden said could impact the media as a whole.

“As abusive as these Espionage Act charges have run in the last 50 years, the government had a sort of quiet agreement. They never charged the press outlets… they charge their sources,” he said. “They are breaking that agreement with the Julian Assange case. Assange is not the source, he is merely a publisher. He runs a press organization.”

The WikiLeaks publisher’s extradition hearing resumed last week in London after a lengthy hiatus due to the coronavirus outbreak. He remains in the maximum security Belmarsh Prison awaiting a decision, where he has spent 16 months under conditions that UN Special Rapporteur Nils Melzer has described as “torture.”
