M.I.A. Says Julian Assange Was ‘Framed’ And Deserves Our Thanks

Rape charges against Wikileaks founder Julian Assange were dropped by Swedish prosecutors on Friday, but it’s not because they think he’s innocent of the crime. It’s because he’s been hiding away in Sweden’s Ecuadorian embassy for five years and without the means to get him in court, they case cannot continue. “I can conclude, based on the evidence, that probable cause for this crime still exists,” Sweden’s chief prosecutor Marianne Ny said, according to the New York Times.

And while Assange is free in that regard, he’s still wanted by London police for charges of failing to appear in a British court. So, while, Assange remains holed up in the embassy, noted supporter M.I.A. came to his defense, posting a picture of him and captioning it with a long letter about his innocence. The letter ridiculously argues that Assange was framed for rape, forgetting that a hero of anti-censorship and government transparency can also be accused of sexual assault.

“Why not cash in ur intellect as most of us do? That type of collective social rape is ok,” M.I.A. wrote, comparing the physical torture of nonconsensual sex to the marketing of sexual images. “The porn images or fucked up weird sh*t my kid has popping up on Youtube every time he searches lego on the internet or constant peddling out of images and messages that say it’s ok to be rampant f*ck boys and girls , in this is modern society.”

M.I.A. ends the post with, “He helped you to see hypocrisy you should thank him and fast fix your system not hide him or the cracks he exposed.” Apparently, she thinks we owe Assange our thanks…?

These times they are changing hear Julian speak at #MELTDOWN2017 ?
#holdingjournalismdown #truth. Every time I ve seen Assange I’ve asked him why he doesn’t design an app for apple or sell out humanity and their data and rape them for all their money to be a rich and respected corporate humanity rapists . I mean he’s as smart as any of the sili”con” valley respected celebrated humans. The “call of duty” guy or the guy installing gps systems into drones that’s killed thousands of innocent people. Why not cash in ur intellect as most of us do? That type of collective social rape is ok. The porn images or f*cked up weird sh*t my kid has popping up on Youtube every time he searches lego on the internet or constant peddling out of images and messages that say it’s ok to be rampant fuck boys and girls, in this is modern society. system that perpetuates over sexualization of women in the name of freedom wants to bomb countries where women cover up and killed how many women and children — Hilary and condoleezza rice joined forces to represent women and said the war in Iraq was to liberate women so they didn’t have to cover up!!!!

Let’s not ask questions about that because that’s normal but dismiss everything this guy did because it hasn’t occurred to you that we are not in the ’60s and ’70s where they just kill you like Malcom x or JFK , they just “slander” or “frame” you mostly use sex or drugs or money to do it, and sadly thats enough because humanity has become that complacent and is rapidly loosing critical thinking faculties. ‬ by now if you haven’t be slandered and framed when you’ve hit the dollars ? or social reach it means your probably working for the system. Grab that p*ssy is a symptom of your broken system that was allowed to grow without question. He helped You to see hypocrisy you should thank him and fast fix your system not hide him or the cracks he exposed.
