It’s rather disgusting to see hypocrites spouting about the rule of law call for the assassination of WikiLeaks founder Assange before he is even arrested and officially charged.
Tom Flanagan, a professor at the University of Calgary and former adviser to Canadian prime minister Stephen Harper is such a hypocrite. Flanagan has openly called for the assassination of Assange.
If calling for the assassination of a private citizen is not a crime in and of it self it ought to be. The University of Calgary should fire Flanagan tomorrow.
I encourage you to phone University of Calgary president Elizabeth Cannon at 403-220-5617 and demand the resignation of Professor Tom Flanagan.

Sarah Palin Compares Assange to Bin Laden
Tom Flanagan joins media darling Sarah Palin who thinks Assange is like an Al Qaeda terrorist
Sarah Palin has demanded that WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is hunted down like Osama bin Laden. In an extraordinary outburst on Facebook, the former Alaska governor attacked the White House for ‘incompetent handling of this whole fiasco.’
Assange is not a “journalist,” any more than the “editor” of al Qaeda’s new English-language magazine Inspire is a “journalist.”
‘He is an anti-American operative with blood on his hands.
‘His past posting of classified documents revealed the identity of more than 100 Afghan sources to the Taliban. ‘Why was he not pursued with the same urgency we pursue al Qaeda and Taliban leaders?’
Excuse me for asking but since when does exposing corruption and hypocrisy make one an al Qaeda’ terrorist? Is the whole world supposed to stand up and salute our illegal wars, our torture of civilians, our holding of prisoners in Cuba with no charges being filed. Are we supposed to salute or simply look away from fraud by our banks and coverups in our Treasury department?
By the way, it took about two days to find Assange. If only we could find Bin Laden so quickly.
Could Sarah Palin Find Spain on a Map?
I seriously doubt Sarah Palin could find Spain on a globe if someone flipped the labels for Spain with France.
She certainly does not know the difference between North and South Korea having spouted to Glenn Beck “Obviously, we gotta stand with our North Korean allies.” She had to be corrected by Beck.
Sarah Palin is currently leading the Republican candidates, but of the major candidates she performs worst against President Obama. She may be the one person Obama could beat.
According to the latest ABC Poll 67% say she is not qualified to be president.
Said George Will “After the 2008 campaign she had two things she had to do. She had to go home to Alaska and study. She had to govern Alaska well. Instead she quit halfway through her first term and shows up in the audience of Dancing With The Stars and other distinctly non-presidential venues.
Such stunts will have media fools fawning all over her, but in crunch-time it won’t win elections. 2008 is proof enough.
