Democrats paint themselves as the anti-war party, the “doves” who promote peace, unlike all those evil Republican warmongers.
One unexpected voice is challenging this narrative, and it’s no stereotypical “right winger,” either.
Julian Assange was hailed by progressives as a hero after he released classified military and diplomatic secrets through his Wikileaks project. However, he’s now accusing Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton of colluding with an internet giant to win the White House, then “start wars.”
As TheDailyCaller.com reports:
Speaking at a European journalism summit on Tuesday, Julian Assange claimed that through several outlets, Google has been working to put Hillary Clinton in the White House.
According to the International Business Times, the WikiLeaks founder told attendees at the “New Era of Journalism: Farewell to Mainstream” conference that “Google is directly engaged with Hillary Clinton’s campaign.”
Assange noted that in 2015 former Google CEO Eric Schmidt launched “The Groundwork,” a startup specifically designed to get Clinton elected.
“Google is heavily integrated with Washington power, at personal level and at business level,” he stated explaining that the search engine has been gathering an “increasing control over the distribution channels,” through which voters take in news about the election.
Assange also criticized Clinton’s foreign policy.
“What we have with Clinton is someone who is a hawk but who has the tools of legal interventionism, a rhetorical cover to start the wars, and someone who seemingly wants to start them.”
“From WikiLeaks’ perspective Hillary Clinton is a problem in terms of war and peace.”
