Who is Julian Assange?

Alex Jones Viewpoint
Appearing on Coast to Coast AM on Tuesday's show,  Alex Jones discussed the WikiLeaks situation and controversies surrounding Julian Assange's arrest. Jones suggests that Assange is being set up and framed with rape charges. 

Further, Jones suggested that Cass Sunstein, the White House regulatory czar, is actually behind WikiLeaks and is using it to create a kind of "digital 9-11," or Internet kill switch. Jones says, "They've got new legislation in place they're calling the Patriot Act for the Internet-- taxation, regulation, web IDs, a total iron curtain over the alternative press."

A Closer Look at Julian Assange
Is this the whole story? Let's take a closer look at who Julian really is politically. According to the Canadian Free Press, Julian Assange is a progressive. This point can be established by the following facts.
1. Assange had a progressive childhood, the seedbed of many leftists, such as Barack Obama. The Washington Times writes,
His parents were well-known on the left and ran a touring theater company. His mother remarried in 1979 to a man who belonged to a controversial New Age group. In the late 1980s, Mr. Assange was a member of a crack hacker team that called itself International Subversives.
2. Assange introduced WikiLeaks at a socialist convention. The New Yorker reports, “Assange flew to Kenya for the World Social Forum, an anti-capitalist convention, to make a presentation about the Web site.”
3. Assange claims no religion, yet insists he’s a highly ethical person. He therefore gets his ideas from atheist sources, by default. He states many odd things regarding religion on his old blog.
4. Julian is anti-War. His pacifism is default leftism. Assange stated: “The most dangerous men are those who are in charge of war. And they need to be stopped. If that makes me dangerous in their eyes, so be it.”
5. Assange criticizes “big business” claiming his next target will be a “big bank.” If there is anything that disturbs Marxists, it’s capitalism.
6. Julian has the leftist flaw of claiming any act is legal if it furthers his subjective goals.
7. Assange claims his private life is seperate from his public crusade—another classic Marxist posture. He was outraged when charged with rape.
8. Assange fears takeover by shadow governments. His response makes more likely the world will devolve into anarchy as Marx predicted.
9. Julian operates as if man is the highest authority in the universe; or as one Marxist writes, “Man is the measure of all things.”
10. Assange admits he leaked Afghan war information because, “I enjoy crushing ______.” One writer said, “Assange is an equal-opportunity America hater.” An acquaintance told a journalist: “The fount of all evil, as he sees the world, is the United States.” Socialists hate America.
11. Assange has always been against rules and law, since he was a young hacker with “International Subversives.” This fits perfectly into Marx’s final anarchic utopia. This commitment to no rules is the only thing making sense of his claim to be libertarian, a law-abiding movement.
12. Julian believes he’s fit to judge all men without any appeal to any other authority or entity. This is a classic megalomaniac Marxist position.
13. Assange’s role model is the communist identifying Daniel Ellesberg, who signed this Marxist-influenced anti-Bush screed.
Research by Webster Tarpley
Webster Tarpley is an author, journalist, historian, lecturer, and critic of US foreign and domestic policy. He has been featured on at least one of Alex Jones productions. He believes that Assange is working for George Soros and finds some interesting connections.

Glenn Beck Weighs In
(Media Matters) (midway down page)

Glenn said:
"Now, I'm sure George Soros -- because he's come out and he has said he is so against this WikiLeaks thing. He is so against it. WikiLeaks advisory board member was the director of the China office of Human Rights Watch, which is Soros-funded. And the WikiLeaks editor -- you know he's hiding out in Great Britain -- he's represented by attorney Mark Stephens, which is weird, because Stephens also does pro bono work for the Open Society Institute. Isn't that weird, huh?"
