A few days ago, Joe Biden called Julian Assange a “terrorist.” Regardless of what you think of Assange, “terrorist” is not the right word. In the 50s and 60s they would have called him a “communist.” It’s the very same syndrome at work. Biden was simply demonizing Assange. I didn’t vote for this kind of bullshit. It’s precisely what I was hoping we could move away from. Like a lot of people on the so-called Left, I’ve been increasingly disappointed with Obama and Company. I generally attribute the course they’ve taken to the influence of “The Empire,” of being in charge of the unholy entity that runs the world. But whatever the reason, they are losing me. Something still clings tenuously, but they are losing me.
