Assange is obviously not an ethnic nationalist!

https://www.theguardian.com/media/2016/dec/24/julian-assange-donald-trump-hillary-clinton-interview

Quote:
Assange, who briefly hosted his own talkshow on the state-owned television network Russia Today, has long had a close relationship with the Putin regime. In his interview with la Repubblica, he said there was no need for WikiLeaks to undertake a whistleblowing role in Russia because of the open and competitive debate he claimed exists there.



Quote:
“In Russia, there are many vibrant publications, online blogs and Kremlin critics, such as [Alexey] Navalny, are part of that spectrum,” he said. “There are also newspapers like Novaya Gazeta, in which different parts of society in Moscow are permitted to critique each other and it is tolerated, generally, because it isn’t a big TV channel that might have a mass popular effect, its audience is educated people in Moscow. So my interpretation is that in Russia there are competitors to WikiLeaks.”


:lol:


The ethnic nationalist view:

Quote:
Dozens of journalists have been killed in Russia in the past two decades, and Freedom House considers the Russian press to be “not free” and notes: “The main national news agenda is firmly controlled by the Kremlin. The government sets editorial policy at state-owned television stations, which dominate the media landscape and generate propagandistic content.”

Well... there have been rumors about Assange making some kind of agreement with Putin's government to leave them off Wikileaks' hit list and not bitch about his regime.

Supposedly in exchange for a safe spot to retreat to when the Hillary Drones are getting too close. Possibly for some extra intel from the Russkies. Or maybe just the straight-up threat of a slow Polonium death.

He's obviously put Russia in a "hands-off" special place after their little exchange a few years ago.

Bit like Snowden, these leakers soon find themselves accused of treason and don't really have much choice but to be driven into the arms of the enemy.

Might be a reflection of the 2016 "Word of the Year?"

Quote:
At Dictionary.com we aim to pick a Word of the Year that embodies a major theme resonating deeply in the cultural consciousness over the prior 12 months. This year, some of the most prominent news stories have centered around fear of the “other.” Fear is an adaptive part of human evolutionary history and often influences behaviors and perceptions on a subconscious level. However, this particular year saw fear rise to the surface of cultural discourse. Because our users’ interest in this overarching theme emerges so starkly for one specific word in our trending lookup data, xenophobia is Dictionary.com’s 2016 Word of the Year.


All well and good . . . as long as you don't confuse one's pragmatic self-interest for "_insert_phobia"

Well, it isn't "all well and good" because we all know there is a value judgement attached to 'xenophobia". It is meant to imply the sufferer is a dullard or ill-educated and ruled by base emotions arising from the reptillian brain.....well..you know....sort of like Trump voters.

I suspect he means that accusing people of "Ethnic Nationalism" is just another thinly disguised identity politics tactic of calling someone a "nazi" or "racist". PC fearmonger-speak & damnation for the SJW toadies to repeat against any perceived resistance versus their constant social engineering attempts.

Why not use simple language like "I do not like you" ??

Why the apparent "love" of double talk?
