Whether you think Julian Assange is a hero, or whether you think he should be hanging from a maple tree in your front yard, one thing I think we can all agree on is that the charges laid against him for *sex crimes* are pretty suspect.
Any red-blooded adult male that has ever had sexual relations with a woman – and I’m including the full 10% of adult males from Saskatchewan – has to look at what has been laid at the feet of Assange and just shudder.
A while back, Assange was in Sweden attending a seminar where he was the main speaker. One of the coordinators of the seminar, described in various newspapers as a “gorgeous radical feminist” (I thought that was an oxymoron – examples here, here and here) took a shine to Assange and invited him to spend a few days at her apartment in Stockholm. That night, Assange and feminist had sex. A day or so later, Assange left to speak at another engagement in some other Swedish town. While there, Assange met another woman who was at his speaking event and one thing led to another and he banged her, too.
A few months later, Assange was charged with rape. Although in both cases, the sex was consensual. Those charges by Swedish authorities were later dropped. And now he is being charged again, this time the Swedish authorities are dripping with proof – Assange didn’t wear a condom. That’s the proof.
To recap – Assange had consensual sex with two women, he didn’t wear a condom and now he is being charged with *sex crimes*.
If having consensual sex and not wearing a condom is a crime, The Mayor should have been in front of a firing squad by the time he was 15.
However, the irony of Assange’s arrest is not lost. Assange is a hero to the left (although he helped leak the east Anglia e-mails that started Climategate, and he has been a thorn in the side of El Presidente Obama), he has been the speaker at many leftie events and has taken up many leftie causes. And now he is being broken by the same laws that he himself agitated for.
My father instilled two pieces of advice in The Mayor that I have not forgotten to this day – those who live by the sword, die by the sword, and, never challenge a midget to an arm wrestling fight for money. The Mayor only wishes he had taken that second piece of advice more seriously.
As for Assange, he lived by the sword, and now, well, the condom dun break, so he may die by the sword.
Either way, grab some popcorn, sit back, and watch the leftie scum tear each other apart over the very laws that they themselves crafted.
