Anti-Assange conspiracy imagined

A decidedly strange tweet from Greens Senator Sarah Hanson-Young:
Would the govt be talking about passports & charges if The [Australian] had got their hands on the leaks given to WikiLeaks first? I think not.
The senator's ill-informed comment ignores that the Wall Street Journal, a stablemate of the Australian, was offered the Wikileaks document dump but declined to participate.

Senator Hanson-Young apparently thinks that Rupert Murdoch and the Gillard government are participants in a massive anti-Assange conspiracy. All one need do is throw out the suggestion and Leftists start imagining right-wingers subverting Australian democracy. Check under your beds Lefties; right-wing conspirators are everywhere.

And SHY's tweet conveniently ignores the fact that the Australian's own Cameron Stewart was the subject of a lengthy investigation after he scooped the world on last year's AFP / Vic Pol terror raids.

If Julian Assange posted the nuclear launch codes online, I'm pretty sure these idiots would still be convinced he's a hero.

It's one thing for the motley collection of deranged anonymous leftoid truth-to-power speakers on Twitter to make such claims; but it's really a worry when a Federal politician jumps on the bandwagon. What was she thinking?

Spot, SHY and the rest of the Greens haven't quite made the jump from political activist group to political party in government. In some sense, let's hope they never do. She may not consider tying herself to a tree in protest anymore, but that's about as far as the 'growing up' goes
