  •  It's politics, my friend. (0+ / 0-)

    Assange is propped up by many on the left (not me) as a hero, and thus every accusation isn't even worth considering. If he was anyone else DKos members would be forming a mob calling for further investigation and a trial.

    Similarly, Bradley Manning got in trouble for punching a girl in the face. He also pulled a knife on his step-mother. If any other man commits acts of violence against women DKos as a whole wants him burned at the stake. Manning? Crickets.

    Please proceed, Governor.

    •  Except you are wrong. (11+ / 0-)

      The issue of Assange's alleged rape incident has been debated numerous times on Daily Kos with many calling for his accountability including me, and this has nothing to do with the subject of discussion here or the facts of that.

      But I'm not surprised you are offering up the usual ad hominem arguments you do in such discussions here, it's become quite predictable.

      •  What ad hominem? (0+ / 0-)

        Someone else brought it up and I commented on it without relating it to the diary topic. People do branch off into side discussions.

        If you want to see my on-topic opinion it's in another post.

        Please proceed, Governor.

      •  So, you dismiss the charge of rape as an (0+ / 0-)

        "incident?" And that it has nothing to do with the "subject of discussion here or the facts of that?"

        Sorry, but I think there are a ton of women out there who would beg to disagree with you.

        Assange's politics do NOT in any way dismiss the seriousness of charges against him, nor should they.

        I'm just about as liberal as they come, but when it comes to excusing rape because the person accused of it is politically of my persuasion, count me out.

        There is NO excuse for rape.
