The Australian Greens party are pretending they are doing everything possible to help Julian Assange and WikiLeaks while in fact they are doing nothing. All they are doing is using WikiLeaks and Assanges’s predicament for some free PR and advertising.
For the Greens to do this make them nothing more than low life political parasites with no ethics or integrity.
The Greens led by Senator Scott Ludlam have been highly critical of the Australian governments treatment and lack of support for WikiLeaks and Julian Assange. One slight problem with that! The Greens are part of the Government. The above picture is courtesy of The Australian and they did a story on the Greens/Labor deal. (Click here to read)
If The Greens were to go into the Australian Prime Minister’s office and say they will not support the government anymore unless the government gives Julian Assange the full support that every Australian citizen is entitled to, what would happen? PM Julia Gillard would direct the attorney general Nicola Roxon and other government officials to start doing just that.
So why haven’t the greens done just that? Because it is not a priority for them. And given that it is not a priority I find it disgusting that they are getting around masquerading that is.
The Greens are some very sick and perverted people to use Julian Assange’s predictament to boost their own profile knowing full well they have no intention of giving him their full support.
I was at a speakers forum last Friday night at the University of Technology, Sydney and the speakers were Scott Ludlam, Australian Greens Senator, Christine Assange, mother of Julian Assange, Humphrey McQueen, historian, Australian National University and WikiLeaks and Assange lawyer Jennifer Robinson.
Mr Ludlam had a lot of good things to say but he kept on pointing the finger at the government while failing to make the point that he is part of the government, so therefore he is part of the problem.
Below is an edited video of some of what Mr Ludlam had to say and my comments.
I have decided to take Mr Ludlam’s advice and start a petition to put pressure on the Greens so they reach the pain threshold, as he says in the video, and for them to take real action in supporting Mr Assange.
The Greens should withdraw their support for the government until Mr Assange is given the maximum amount of diplomatic, legal and consular support that he is entitled to as an Australian citizen
If we let the government get away with this then who knows, maybe tomorrow it could be you. Remember David Hicks was locked up for years without trial or charge and tortured. Even if Hicks was guilty he was entitled to a trial in a fair and reasonable time but the Liberal Party government of the day sold him out. The Liberals seem to have learnt their lesson and have come out in support of Assange and WikiLeaks in relation to Julie Gillard saying that what WikiLeaks and Julian Assange did was illegal.
This issue is no longer about Assange. It is about a government in a democracy doing the right thing and supporting its citizens.
I will do another posting on the forum I went to last Friday night in the next couple of days.
But make sure you support the petition and let the power of the people be known. We will not tolerate crap from the government anymore, and that includes the parasite Greens.
And lets name and shame the greens
Senator Bob Brown, Senator Christine Milne, Senator Rachel Siewert, Senator Sarah Hanson-Young, Senator Scott Ludlam, Senator Richard Di Natale, Senator Penny Wright, Senator Larissa Waters, Senator Lee Rhiannon and MP Adam Bandt. They should be ashamed of themselves, but like standard politicians they will lie and crap on about why they have done nothing. If you would like to contact the Greens and ask them why they have done bugger all click here for their contact details.
