    Who’s calling full-body scanners freedom, and who’s calling Assange a terrorist?

    Freedom of not getting your ass blown up while flying, bub.

    Even though all those attempts were from extremist Muslims on inbound international flights. No, I’m sure it was a good use of tax dollars, and people won’t mind coughing up a few more civil rights to be safe. Even though the new screening processes have a 70% failure rate and most likely wouldn’t find explosives.

    Assange is a butthole.

    You wanna stop corruption? Pick and choose what you release to the public, dumbass.

    He did. He even wrote a letter to a US diplomat, asking for their help and input regarding what information needs to be censored but they refused to work with him.
    Perhaps it’s a good idea not to get your information from CNN or FOX. Even if we assume that he was reckless, it’s not corruption. Unless you consider character assassination a personal gain.

    I’m pretty sure the scanners were referred to as security measures, not freedom. And Assange has been called many things, but terrorist is nonsensical, since he has done nothing violent. There are much more intelligent ways to protest intrusive airport security measures and support WikiLeaks. Taking things to extremes is a stupid way to argue.

    You’re missing the point. After 9/11, Bush famously said “They hate our freedom”, and then proceeded to start taking it away. Now it’s gotten to the point where you get a digital strip search. A much much better president said “any society that is willing to give up freedom in exchange for security deserves neither”.

    And Assange is being labeled a terrorist by the powers that be, but all he did was uncover state sponsored terrorism by the US government.

    That second line is paraphrased from someone who was never president.

    Dude was too busy banging his way across France to get tied down to something stupid like being president.

    You know I often forget Jefferson was never president. Could have been if he’d wanted. I still stand by my assertion that he was a better president than Bush, which is really saying something seeing as he was never actually president.

    Assange has been called a terrorist by many top US politicians. Here’s just one link:

    The people who don’t understand what kind of real danger Assange has done to you, your children and anyone you care about has no understanding of the realities of the world, nor will they change their opinions reading comments in this website.

    With that said, I don’t like airport security at this time, but I have the freedom not to use commercial airlines.

    I have yet to see a good argument to keep illegal actions by the government a secret.

    Assange is an attention-whoring butthole.
    The real hero is the whistle-blowing soldier who’s rotting in jail while people like you felate this tard like he’s Superman.

    You’re right, Manning is the hero, but it’s not Assange’s fault that the media can make more money off him than off the torture of a soldier. As much as I like Assange, I do wish Wikileaks had remained faceless.
    Decades from now Bradley Manning will be celebrated by the American people, just like Ellsberg is. I just hope he survives this.
