No, it’s not. Its eager work with Russia, such as Assange appearing on RT, demonstrates a cavalier disregard for human liberty. Putin constantly vanishes and undermines Russian journalists that speak out. He is squarely against what WikiLeaks purports to be about. This should utterly disgust a true man of the people, but Assange doesn’t care. He’s a fake man of the people. He wants to push an agenda, not to inform people.
And do I even need to touch on his wholehearted support for Trump, a man who is literally a third world dictator trapped in a democracy? Assange is an authoritarian, even if he doesn’t know it.
