Julian Assange – no friend of Nationalism – no champion of free speech

It’s a little disappointing that some nationalists (including Pauline Hanson, leader of One Nation party in Australia – who compared him to a latter-day Ned Kelly!) who should really know better, have come out in support of the mega-loon Julian Assange, who is currently being held in HMP Belmarsh – along with Stephen Yaxley-Lennon (AKA Tommy), young members of National Action, and Islamic Terrorists.

A small number of misguided nationalists have associated themselves with campaigns on behalf of the imprisoned Julian Assange.

Do these well-meaning, but silly nationalists not understand that Assange, apart from being a sexual deviant (although not a rapist) is (or was – as now as he’s banged up) an active anti-racist/anti-nationalist campaigner, back in his native Australia, where he made a point of attacking “racism” in general and nationalists in particular? He stood for almost everything that we as nationalists are fighting against!

And do these well-meaning nationalists defend what Assange did to the British National Party (BNP) just over a decade ago in 2008, when he hacked into their (the BNP’s) computers and stole their entire membership list of around 13,500 people?

And did these same well-meaning nationalists support Assange when he uploaded the said BNP membership list (full names/home addresses/phone numbers etc.) onto his own Wikileaks website for all the world to see/read?

And finally, do they know (and support) what happened to many of these BNP members, once their names and home addresses were leaked? Many of them were physically attacked, and/or had their homes attacked (by extreme left-winger anti-fascist activists), and many of them lost their jobs (including policemen, soldiers, teachers, and even nurses) after they were “outed” in the left-wing UK press.

After that, many professional people thought twice about joining parties such as the BNP, as they had no wish to be “outed” themselves at some later date. This helped destroy the BNP (although it must be pointed out that there were a lot of other factors that led to the BNP’s demise, some not a million miles away from Welshpool!).

Around the time or just after the BNP membership leak, Assange entertained the idea of “a broad Jewish conspiracy out to subvert him and to block his work.” He described discovering the “real” reason for the BBC broadcasting a flagship Panorama news programme on his company – Wikileaks: The Secret Story in 2011: “We finally found out that the producer’s wife for this show was part of the Zionist movement in London.” This was news to the producer and his wife, neither of which were Jewish, and had no connection with Zionism or Israel or Tottenham Hotspur FC for that matter!

Assange told Agoravox, a French news site, that he believed that the BBC’s rationale for making the program was to influence the UK judges who would decide his fate – whether or not he should be extradited to Sweden.

We at H&D, as nationalists, and I think we speak for 99% of other nationalists, are very pleased that Assange has been arrested and locked up. And whether it be in Sweden, the UK or the USA, we hope he spends the rest of his life behind bars.
