Death to Julian Assange, his offspring, the Wikileaks board, all of us, the internet, etc. Contrary to what these clowns have learned from video games and Hollywood, most countries do have laws. And public opinion works both ways. This is a list of the ghouls and it will soon contain what can be done about them. Sadly, I expect it to grow faster than the NOD. While reading this sickening post, please keep in mind that no one associated with Wikileaks has broken any laws, and Wikileaks’ work over the past four years has caused no physical harm to anyone. If the world ever needed a more pure indication of how long and how much the world’s media has been lying, take a look at what happens when a media organization tells the truth.
“A dead man can’t leak stuff. This guy’s a traitor, a treasonist and has broken every law of the United States. I’m not for the death penalty and if I’m not for the death penalty there’s only one way to do it, illegally shoot the son of a bitch.”
Agrees with Bob Beckel, making shooting sounds with imaginary gun like a four year old on national TV. “Obama, if you’re listening today, you should take this guy out, have the CIA take him out.”
Former Harper adviser, former US draft dodger, who now wants Obama to send a drone after Julian Assange as his personal form of Viagra. After watching the show a woman sent Flanagan an email protesting and received a one line answer saying “Better be careful, we know where you live.” For those not familiar with this former advisor to prime minister Stephen Harper, he was also responsible for one of the most revolting moments in recent Canadian politics when he attempted to bribe independent MP Chuck Cadman to vote with the conservatives by offering Cadman, who was dying of cancer, a million dollar life insurance policy for his family. It was turned down.
Update: Charges filed against Tom Flanagan. University of Calgary is doing nothing about a professor making death threats on national television while continuing to persecute students for posting feedback about a professor on facebook. Have a petition.
“We should treat (Assange) as an enemy combatant, and as an absolute enemy of the United States.”
“And no one from WikiLeaks should feel comfortable the rest of their lives. These are bad people doing bad things, and they’re gonna get Americans and our allies killed. And we should recognize that, and recognize that it is in effect an act of war against the United
“Why wasn’t Assange garroted in his hotel room years ago?”
“If we can find a way to get him to come to the United States we can take matters into our own hands.”
(on twitter @DarkOgham, myspace.com/jonolan1967)
Assange “has at least one acknowledged son, Daniel Assange, who lives something close to normal life in Australia and who is easy to find and equally easy to harm either physically, legally, or economically. Physical harm would be best.”
“That’s makes Julian Assange vulnerable and quite “touchable.” Threaten his child and it’s an odds-on bet that he’ll let himself be taken and that, once in custody, he’ll divulge the information needed to eliminate the rest of his cell. Even if he won’t surrender voluntarily, credibly threatening or taking his son should rattle him enough to cause him to err and be an easier target.”
Update: Now this blog has been updated with:
Some of the “people” that have been defending Assange’s “freedom of speech” have complained to my hosting provider in such a manner that I have been forced to censor / redact this post.
Ironic isn’t it?
Some of them found my statements profoundly disturbing and were frightened by the thought that they might cause someone harm. In response they had me silenced by the most efficient methods at their disposal.
Actually, they proved my point and validated my opinion of what should be done, as did various deleted death threats against my family and I (all reported to US Agencies and agencies of their own nations).
Earlier Daniel Assange had added this comment:
Why must people use such terrible, terrible photos? Look! I have pretty sparkly purikura!: http://www.facebook.com/somnidea
As to the content… hmm. I’m not sure my father is the sort of man to submit to such dastardly tactics. I haven’t spoken to him in three years, so there’s certainly no immediate emotional connection to be preyed upon. Even if it were effective, I suspect that Wikileaks has now reached a point where it simply cannot be permanently destroyed. Now that the concept has been demonstrated, I expect another organization would rise in its place even if my father and everyone he knows were to be silenced. Technology as a force for social change is extremely difficult to suppress.
And received in response:
Believe me or not at your own whim, but I actually bear you no malice whatsoever; you would just seem to be useful tool to reach your father if your father proved difficult to track and pin down or if he failed to cooperate.
If it is as you say that putting pressure upon you would not be an effective lever, then I see no point in any nation’s military or intelligence community doing. Hopefully, if you are both honest and correct in your claim, they already know this and have come to the same conclusion.
As to the photo quality – it was the only one I could find. Post a better one on your FB and I’ll use it instead.
As to Wikileaks – Removal of key personnel and informants / contributors would be quite effective in quelling such things. The tech is sound and pervasive, but the content and content “contributors” can be controlled or culled as needed for national interests.
Addendum: You do have a loyal following of “twits.” Ironically though, many of them are calling for my being silenced through one set of measures or another.
They seem to think that the limit of Free Speech is when it harms people or says that agents of a government should do so…
I wonder what your father would think of that.
Update 2: See comments.
“In Assange’s case, he’s not an American and so he has no constitutional protection. … Can we do anything legally about someone from another country leaking this information? Maybe not. Can we have a CIA agent with a sniper rifle rattle a bullet around his skull the next time he appears in public as a warning? You bet we can — and we should. If that’s too garish for people, then the CIA can kill him and make it look like an accident.”
‘asked the Obama administration today to “determine whether WikiLeaks could be designated a foreign terrorist organization,” putting the group in the same company as al-Qaeda and Aum Shinrikyo, the Japanese cult that released deadly sarin gas on the Tokyo subway.’
That’s this Peter King, IRA promoter. “The risk is that broader discussion of domestic support for foreign terrorism would lead to greater media attention for his history with the IRA support network. King claims that truth is terrorism: worse, even, than the killing of innocent American citizens. One has to wonder who here is the terrified party, and why.”
“Think creatively. … Franklin Roosevelt had German saboteurs tried by military tribunal and executed. Assange has done more damage to the United States than all six of those Germans combined. Putting U.S. secrets on the Internet, a medium of universal dissemination new in human history, requires a reconceptualization of sabotage and espionage – and the laws to punish and prevent them. Where is the Justice Department?
“And where are the intelligence agencies on which we lavish $80 billion a year? Assange has gone missing. Well, he’s no cave-dwelling jihadi ascetic. Find him. Start with every five-star hotel in England and work your way down.
“Want to prevent this from happening again? Let the world see a man who can’t sleep in the same bed on consecutive nights, who fears the long arm of American justice. I’m not advocating that we bring out of retirement the KGB proxy who, on a London street, killed a Bulgarian dissident with a poisoned umbrella tip. But it would be nice if people like Assange were made to worry every time they go out in the rain.”
Title is “Whack Wikileaks”. (I love all the tough guy euphemisms for murder these guys come up with behind their desks, in their little cubicles.)
“It’s hard to see why Thiessen isn’t right. Why can’t we act forcefully against WikiLeaks? Why can’t we use our various assets to harass, snatch or neutralize Julian Assange and his collaborators, wherever they are? Why can’t we disrupt and destroy WikiLeaks in both cyberspace and physical space, to the extent possible? Why can’t we warn others of repercussions from assisting this criminal enterprise hostile to the United States?”
“Acting together to degrade, defeat, and destroy WikiLeaks should be the first topic discussed at today’s White House meeting between the president and the congressional leadership.”
“Assassinate Assange” was the title. “The world is witnessing the absurd, almost surreal spectacle of the American superpower standing helpless in the face of a lone hacker.” Jeffrey needs to meet Anonymous, JA’s imaginary friends.
“If we catch you, we’re going to hang you.” etc., etc., etc.
Don Laird (commenter)
“Julian Assange, his assistants, staff and those who have provided Assange with administrative, logistical, operational and financial support and should, using the mechanisms and resources of their own intelligence and military infrastructures, with a sense of extreme prejudice, unmistakable permanence and finality render the same completely unable to continue their murderous crusade.
“Let the silence that follows the neutralization of Julian Assange, his staff and his co-conspirators speak volumes to the enlightened socialist academia, liberal intelligencia and those sneering, malicious self appointed bringers of “clarity and truth” remaining who toy with the idea of dabbling in what is nothing more than a treasonous, seditious exercise in self gratification wrapped in the robes of the self righteous.

Update: This one added the following comment to the post at Zero Anthropology:
Your repeated references to my post are transparent, attempts to provoke a response. These repeated references in addition to revelations regarding email addresses and IP addresses. So I will respond with this.
Firstly, your readers will be rather amused at your “outing” of my email address, which troubles me not but may trouble them from several stand points. This will also no doubt be noted by your coworkers and students, to your considerable disadvantage.
Secondly, is the remarkable similarity between the difficulties, a tempest in a teacup, facing Professor Tom Flanagan of the University of Calgary and you, an associate professor of Concordia University. Both are men who have made public statements advocating violence and murder, “should be assassinated” and your little quip, “then we all call for your fucking little head to be cut off and flushed down the toilet”. Both will, as a result of their indiscretion, suffer a withering scrutiny of their remarks by both the president of the university and its board of trustees.
There is no ambiguity in your incitement to decapitate me. This will be of significant concern for your coworkers, fellow professors, students, students parents and your superiors. In addition, considering your affection for decapitation and radical islam, I am certain this will be of interest to the Canadian Security and Intelligence Service as well as the RCMP. Perhaps you hadn’t noticed that radical muslims and radical muslim sympathizers are not terribly popular in Canada.
Understand very clearly Mr. Forte, parents of students in attendance at Concordia University are made most uncomfortable by university professors who, in close proximity to their children, advocate and promote the sort of violence you have today. This is something that is also not lost on your employers and your coworkers who, as you suffer your own consequences, will no doubt distance themselves from you.
You may try to dismiss your gaffe as a “passionate moment” but rest assured Mr. Forte, considering your proximity to Ecole Poly Technique and the massacre of the young women there at the hands of an unbalanced murderous student, there are many who will be most uncomfortable knowing they and their students are walking the halls with a very unstable man. Your avocation of violence and murder is a breech of trust with your students and employers and no doubt this will be viewed in the same light by the community at large.
Still desperately seeking attention, after already ensuring his name in history’s most despised. Twitter name 6. Drop him a tweet.
“Why is Assange still alive? … WikiLeaks could have its assets seized, just like the Taliban has. And U.S. President Barack Obama could do what he’s doing to the Taliban throughout the world.
“He doesn’t sue them or catch them. He kills them. Because it’s war.
“Obama has even ordered the assassination of an American citizen, Anwar al-Awlaki.
“How does Obama see Assange any differently?”
(US Republican Senate leader) “Congress should change the law if necessary to pursue the 39-year-old Australian.”, “I think the man is a high-tech terrorist.”
“He’s a blackmail extortionist terrorist.”
(reality TV star) “Hunt down the WikiLeaks chief like Taliban”, “He is an anti-American operative with blood on his hands. His past posting of classified documents revealed the identity of more than 100 Afghan sources to the Taliban. Why was he not pursued with the same urgency we pursue al-Qaida and Taliban leaders?” Unintentional hilarity: Palin copies Jonah Goldberg’s “serious question”, but both of them are answering Assange. He asks the world to look at the “serious questions” he puts in front of them, they say the serious question is why is he alive?
The “founder of the WikiLeaks website should be prosecuted as a terrorist”.
“Assange is a non-U.S. citizen operating outside the territory of the United States. This means the government has a wide range of options for dealing with him. It can employ not only law enforcement but also intelligence and military assets to bring Assange to justice and put his criminal syndicate out of business.”
“the FBI may use its statutory authority to investigate and arrest individuals for violating United States law, even if the FBI’s actions contravene customary international law” and that an “arrest that is inconsistent with international or foreign law does not violate the Fourth Amendment.” In other words, we do not need permission to apprehend Assange or his co-conspirators anywhere in the world.”
“1. Indict Mr. Assange and his colleagues for espionage, regardless of whether he is presently in a U.S. jurisdiction, and ask our allies to do the same.
2. Explore opportunities for the president to designate WikiLeaks and its officers as enemy combatants, paving the way for non-judicial actions against them.
3. Freeze the assets of the WikiLeaks organization and its supporters, and sanction financial organizations working with this terrorist-enabling organization so they cannot clear transactions denominated in U.S. dollars.
4. Give the new U.S. Cyber-Command a chance to prove its worth by ordering it to electronically assault WikiLeaks and any telecommunications company offering its services to this organization.”
Australia: s.11.4(1) of the Criminal Code : inciting a crime is illegal.
Canada: Section 22 (counselling or aiding or abetting culpable homicide when an actual crime has been committed) and Section 464 (the same but re a crime not yet committed).

Regarding the updated post and comment: Do you believe these two? Sit and complacently order up murder from behind a computer screen and cry like babies when they are called on it? Janolin cries about having to redact something that would harm a person he supposedly wants to harm to get back at someone for supposedly not redacting enough. Don Laird deplores violent threats.
Obviously, persons of very little intelligence who see the talking heads on TV doing something think it’s perfectly ok for them to do it too. Time to address the talking heads on TV.
