Senior TIME Reporter Calls for Drone Strike on Wikileaks’ Assange
by Anthony Gucciardi
Less than one month after writing an article advocating the creation of a 1984-style police state within the US, TIME Magazine’s senior correspondent Michael Grunwald now says he ‘can’t wait’ to cheer on the death of Wikileak’s Julian Assange. In fact, he specifically can’t wait to support a drone strike on Assange.
It’s essential to remember that this is the very same individual who wrote what very well may be among the most moronic and brainwashed articles in recent history, entitled ‘Tread on Me: The Case for Freedom From Terrorist Bombings, School Shootings and Exploding Factories’. And in this article, Grunwald effectively attaches himself to everything that is wrong with the mainstream left and right parties — all at once.
But we’ll get to how Grunwald says we need the government to protect us from everything like natural disasters and terrorists in a minute.
Despite deleting the Tweet after sending it out, likely because he realized the response of rational individuals would be to criticize him, various Twitter users were able to capture and re-Tweet the 140 character death fantasy over Wikileaks’ Julian Assange. The Tweet, as shown in a screenshot below, read:
“I can’t wait to write a defense of the drone strike that takes out Julian Assange”
Because nothing is more satisfying than sending out a predator drone to murder an investigative journalist slash whistleblower, right Michael? This Tweet truly sounds like it’s a parody of the Obama White House propaganda factory, acting as if whistleblowers are the real threat to the American people. Because the concern is certainly not based around Obama going around with secret orders and starting proxy wars with Russia via the arming of Syrian rebels in Syria.
No way, it’s the investigative journalists we need to watch out for.
