WikiLeaks: who gives a shit about your stupid little privacy!

When I wrote about WikiLeaks in the aftermath of that sniveling fuckwit Bradley Manning’s revelations, I showed that WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange couldn’t be bothered to give less of a crispy rat’s fuck about the collateral damage his leaks produced. What are a few inconsequential Afghan lives compared to the noble mission of exposing government secrets getting international press attention and having frothing loons genuflecting before his greatness, right?

He insisted that any risk to informants’ lives was outweighed by the overall importance of publishing the information.

Mr Assange said: “No one has been harmed, but should anyone come to harm of course that would be a matter of deep regret – our goal is justice to innocents, not to harm them. That said, if we were forced into a position of publishing all of the archives or none of the archives we would publish all of the archives because it’s extremely important to the history of this war.”

Current reporting shows that, despite the fact that WikiLeaks over the years has released some useful, interesting information that the American public should know, Assange and his mangy crew of miscreants still don’t give a crap about anything but publicity. They can’t be bothered with protecting the privacy of ordinary people. They just don’t give a shit, because they believe their mission to expose every secret every government holds outweighs even the most extreme life and death situations their site may expose that could impact ordinary people.

I’m sure rape victims and gays in Saudi Arabia and other theocratic shitholes that put people to death for such transgressions are really grateful to WikiLeaks for revealing information that could cause them to be killed.

In the past year alone, the radical transparency group has published medical files belonging to scores of ordinary citizens while many hundreds more have had sensitive family, financial or identity records posted to the web. In two particularly egregious cases, WikiLeaks named teenage rape victims. In a third case, the site published the name of a Saudi citizen arrested for being gay, an extraordinary move given that homosexuality is punishable by death in the ultraconservative Muslim kingdom.

Can someone explain to me how publishing medical histories of ordinary people is in the public’s interest to know?

Julian Assmange says WikiLeaks steals secrets. No one ever calls him on the fact that stealing is immoral and illegal. It's the taking of something that's not his. That makes him no better than a common thief.

Julian Assmange says WikiLeaks steals secrets. No one ever calls him on the fact that stealing is immoral and illegal. It’s the taking of something that does not belong to him. That makes him no better than a common thief.

What about their contact information, such as phone number and address?

Assmange is still hanging out at the Ecuadorian embassy in London. He has guards to protect him should some nutbar enterprising citizen decide to scale the embassy wall and maybe attack him.

The rape victims, those hiding from domestic violence, and gays in Saudi Arabia don’t have that luxury.

And the people whose Social Security WikiLeaks published for every identity thief to steal and sell on the black market can do nothing but buy expensive identity protection programs and keep their fingers crossed that they don’t wind up in a world of shit.

Because Assmange doesn’t care. He’s such an arrogant, attention-seeking shitbag, that he obviously thinks his mission justifies any damage caused to the people on whose necks he steps to expose government secrets portray himself in the media as a hero.

Assmange doesn’t care whom he hurts, and cannot comprehend that the release of personal details and names of ordinary people whose only crime may be being gay in Saudi Arabia or being sexually assaulted there, will not decrease government spying, will not result in more freedom, and will likely increase government surveillance of these individuals.

Three Saudi cables published by the WikiLeaks identified domestic workers who’d been tortured or sexually abused by their employers, giving the women’s full names and passport numbers. One cable named a male teenager who was raped by a man while abroad; a second identified another male teenager who was so violently raped his legs were broken; a third outlined the details of a Saudi man detained for “sexual deviation” — a derogatory term for homosexuality.

Why Ecuador continues to grant this narcissistic ass gobbler asylum is beyond me.

I will also note the hypocrisy of those who screamed loudest about wanting him arrested and prosecuted for revealing sensitive information provided by Manning are now patting him on the back for the release of the DNC emails – and vice versa.

I also wonder why he hasn’t released any dirt on the Russians. Is it because he is actually afraid of Putin, or employed by him like his turd goblin pal Snowden?

Whatever the reason, it’s obvious Assange doesn’t care about anything but perpetuating himself as a hero and warrior of transparency, and he and his band of elitist sphincter jockeys are too lazy to do anything but dump a bunch of documents into cyber space and watch the fireworks.

WikiLeaks files are invested with malware? Meh. Who gives a shit? Can’t be bothered to screen for viruses. Ain’t nobody got time for that.

WikiLeaks exposes personal medical information? Meh. Who gives a shit? There are more important things to do than sanitize private data that could get people killed.

WikiLeaks dumps a bunch of useless junk onto the Internet? So what? There might be gems of information about government secrecy in there! Read through all that shit, you lazy monkeys! Assmange certainly has no time to do it!

Assmange apparently considers himself a Nietzschean Ubermensch whose very existence justifies anything he does and creates his own version of “morality” that apparently doesn’t include doing no harm to others. His mission is superior and far more important than the little guys he harms.

Here’s wishing that the arrogant bug fucker pisses off someone at the Ecuadorian embassy badly enough to be tossed out on his supercilious, bony ass to be picked up by the police and tossed in PMITA prison for some tender manlove.

  3. I really don’t understand why Vlad Putin hasn’t had Assmangina poisoned so far. It wouldn’t be particularly difficult to do, either, since that was how that other guy, the Russian who died of radiation poisoning in London, was killed. It was difficult to detect, but deadly and very real.

  5. More to the actual point, I’d love to see the culture rebel against rampant “sharing” of data with companies that just want a bigass database so they can sell “targeted ads.” Even if I didn’t mind them doing so, they become such a tempting target to Asshanger-types that no one can guarantee the data won’t go to some ratfucker.

    As it is, some perfectly simple app that does very little often wants access to all the data on my phone (e.g., why in the hell does a GPS app want my microphone? Not for any conceivable purpose that I’d want it fulfilling!)–at which point I tiredly refuse to install it and go looking.

  6. I’m torn. On the one hand, the -only- way we’re finding out what our government is really up to is ‘thanks’ to assholes like manning, assange, and snowden. They provide a valueble service to us, by revealing things that, let’s be honest, would never come to light otherwise, wistleblowers not withstanding.

    on the other hand, we’re taking a hell of a lot of damage, collateral, -and- direct, from assholes like manning, assange, and snowden.

    From my perspective, it’s a tough call.

    1. It would be a much easier call, however, if these guys would redact irrelevant information.

      It is my understanding that of Snowden’s leaks, for example, only about 5% were actually relevant to NSA spying, while something like 95% was about foreign functionary internals, like diplomacy notes and intelligence work. This makes it a bit more difficult to believe that Snowden only had our best interests at heart.

      Having said that, if Snowden did a simple “catch, ditch and run”, I would still be more sympathetic…but (if I recall correctly) he claims that he’s sitting on even more data, which will be released if something bad happens to him…which gives me the impression that he *has* taken the time to redact his information somewhat…

      As for the release of the DNC emails, I think that’s fantastic. I can’t wait until they release even more DNC emails! And the RNC ones, for that matter! I’m kindof “meh” on the Libertarian National Committee emails, though: I’m not sure if we really need all that more confirmation that the Libertarian Party is b*tcrap crazy….

  8. I remember back in the late 70’s when I worked in a lab job all night and listened to Larry King, on the radio. He had a plan to keep the USSR under called the Equador plan. It went something like this.
    The U.S. would nuke Equador into plate glass, just make it gone. The world would protest, the other super powers would go crazy, but pretty much things would eventually settle down. Then, the next time the Soviets, or the Chinese started saber rattling, we would just send them a two word cable. ” Remember Equador?”
