Indifference

On January 4, 2021, Judge Vanessa Baraitser will decide if Julian should be extradited to the United States for charges of hacking government computers. Even though the world is in the middle of a pandemic—the life of this journalist is still at risk.

The men in power that secretly control the world wants Julian dead or locked away for good. At this point, there is no need to go into details because I have written about this case before as have many other journalists and human rights activists. We know the Judge, Vanessa Baraitser is corrupt, vile, and a complete psychopath.

Ok, maybe you don’t know about Julian’s court hearing last year. I urge you to visit the web site of John Pilger. I have been a student and a fan of Pilger’s work since my days in London in 2006. Here, he describes the unprofessional scene that transpired during Julian Assange’s hearing.

It’s said If you want a successful blog or news paper then maybe you shouldn’t talk down to your readers. I disagree, that’s the exact thing you should do. That’s where we miss the mark as journalist. You should talk down to the public if they are having a hard time grasping a series math problem.

But What’s really disappointing to me is the public’s response to Julian Assange illegal confinement and imprisonment. No one really cares about this man risking his life for YOU so that you may know the evil things your government has been involved in. No one cares about PayPal colluding with the US government to help shut down WikiLeaks.

I wonder what’s the point of risking your life for a public that won’t lift a finger to save you? Here is a quote from Martin Niemöller that best describes the public’s indifference to Julian Assange’s case.

First they came for the Communists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Communist

Then they came for the Socialists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Socialist

Then they came for the trade unionists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a trade unionist

Then they came for the Jews
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Jew

Then they came for me
And there was no one left
To speak out for me
