A report published by a British magazine on Tuesday said the WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange, suggested that British journalists, including the editor of The Guardian, were engaged in a Jewish-led conspiracy to smear his organization.
Right now, maybe he said this, maybe he didn’t. British Journalism being what it is – a lot of impossibly outrageous nonsense punctuated by a few pinpricks of truth. No seriously, they just do things differently. The onus of proof is on the defendant. Allow me to explain:
“You, sir. You fuck your mother.” Uh. No. No I don’t. That’s awful. You should stop saying that.
“I will not. You must prove to me that you do not. I repeat my good sir, you fuck your mother. I say you fuck her.” Well, I don’t know how to not prove something like that. So I guess I’ll just write you off as a prick.
“En guarde!” *both shoot each other*
Still, I think if its true, it’s time to extradite Assange. We don’t protect racists and holocaust deniers. It’s the sad simple truth. There’s a lower burden of proof for racists – namely, that they should be held to the above standard, instead of the American standard which is the opposite.
