Angel Fox protesting at the Guardian January 2nd, 2018 against the alleged Manafort meetings
I see many people retweeting and sharing the Guardian’s articles regarding Assange lately. This bothers me immensely after what they did to him. If it was not enough that they released the key to the cables which put others in danger and let Assange take the blame, they have spent nearly a dozen years smearing him. There’s even more to this story than just that.
Let us start with an article titled “The Guardian’s War on Assange” seen here in its entirety. John Pilger explains:
The Guardian has exploited the work of Assange and WikiLeaks in what its previous editor called “the greatest scoop of the last 30 years”. The paper creamed off WikiLeaks’ revelations and claimed the accolades and riches that came with them.
With not a penny going to Julian Assange or to WikiLeaks, a hyped Guardian book led to a lucrative Hollywood movie. The book’s authors, Luke Harding and David Leigh, turned on their source, abused him and disclosed the secret password Assange had given the paper in confidence, which was designed to protect a digital file containing leaked US embassy cables.
Then, of course, there is the article they published in November of 2018 titled “Manafort had secret talks with Assange in Ecuadorian Embassy” by none other than Luke Harding. There was no truth in this article as there was no proof he ever visited. The Ecuadorian Embassy has a sign-in book and there is no evidence Manafort was ever there. The problem with this lie is it sealed the deal for Assange to evicted and his refugee status removed. Pressure from the U.S. government and their bribe ended with Assange brutally arrested and illegally removed from the Embassy on April 11, 2019.
They have also continuously pushed a Russian narrative framing Assange as the reason for Trump being elected. They also push the narrative that Assange is not a publisher or a journalist. Their attacks on Assange are simply predictable and are intended to not only smear him but destroy him.
Still, there is more. In the article listed above, they name 44 Guardian articles smearing Assange. You ask why? To protect themselves from the prosecution they so richly deserve for dropping those files before Assange had a chance to redact the names contained in them. The Guardian is the one responsible for putting lives in danger, not Wikileaks! Harding and Leigh should be the ones behind bars!
When a publisher of News like The Guardian has published 44 articles in a campaign to destroy one man and his organization, one has to know that they are protecting themselves. By retweeting and sharing their articles, Assange supporters are stabbing him in the back regardless of if the article contains any truth or not. We must stop doing this! You are supporting the enemy! Please, do not retweet or share their articles. If you give it a few hours, other news outlets will often publish the same story. The Guardian is worthless trash with an agenda. The only reason you are seeing reports of Assange support now is that they know they are at risk!
