How can you tell who wears the white hat and who wears the black hat when everyone is bad?
The Clinton Media/Political Machine has been trying to discredit whistle-blower website Wikileaks. And Wikileaks has been trying to discredit Hillary and The Clinton Foundation. Depending on how you look at it, both sides may well be telling the truth. Or at least not lying.
I don’t know Assange or Hillary Clinton personally. But from what I have heard, read and going with my gut feeling HE seems like a douche-bag while SHE seems to me a particularly evil and nasty piece of work.
But this is just my opinion. And even though I may personally know for sure who is the bad guy here, just knowing does not an argument make!
What we have are two black hat individuals who seem to be not directly lying about each other… Surprisingly, as story characters, they have a lot in common.
And there’s another factor that they both have in common. They are both fighting for their lives. And there lies also the answer!
Assange has been stuck in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London for 4 years now. If he leaves he will be arrested for (somewhat trumped up) charges. Anyone who thinks that he will survive long after being arrested would receive very, very generous odds from any of the local Bookies in London. I’d take that bet!
Clinton, too is fighting for her life. Many rich and powerful entities have invested a lot of energy and money into arranging a 2016 Presidential term for her. They would not be “pleased” should she fail them. In fact, the deck is so stacked in her favor that failing to win at this point would be tantamount to The USA Basketball Dream Team losing a game to the Vatican Part-time Nun’s Wheelchair team.
If Clinton loses her career as a politician is over. Her vast fortune collected in the treasuries of the Clinton Foundation will wither away. Her name will replace Dewey in the history books as the Biggest POTUS Loser. Stripped of her power she will fade into a figurative death in the shadow realm of Politicians and Presidents of yesteryear. Martha’s Vineyard maybe?
Assange will literally die. DEAD. Which is why he is the good guy. Not much of a good guy, albeit, but our protagonist none-the-less.
