    My God. These people are unbelievable.

    First, GetUp! is introduced to Fox viewers as "a far left" group - not true.

    Second, the interviewer and the neocon confuse GetUp!'s cause with that of Wikileaks. GetUp! is just after due process for Assange. ie Putting an end to the kind of rhetoric that the neocon engaged in - "He should be killed!" ie. People of all political persuasions in Australia - including people on the right of politics - support the GetUp! position and require that the rule of law be applied to Assange and that people who should know better stop talking about what sentence should be levied against him (capital punishment) before there is a conviction, a trial or, God forbid, before charges are even laid. The abandonment of the rule of law is obscene.

    Those of us in the US are never surprised when Fox sensationalizes something.

    It's a disgraceful race to fatwa being promoted and promoted by these bloodthirsty demagogues.

    They are providing a terrible example to both adults and children, Americans and foreigners.

    Education has been wasted on them.

    The reaction of the political leaders and their supporters on the whole wikileaks fiasco is far more damning than any cable ever will be.

    Hmmm. Murder, or freedom of speech? You decide. They spent many years not assassinating the real bad guys but take no shame in calling for the beheading of an peaceful advocate. Sickening. They are starting to sound more like the Taliban than people with our safety at heart.

    America justified the invasion of Iraq, saying it brought with it the rule of law.

    "This is an historic moment. We have in this past year made great progress in ending the long era of conflict and cold war. We have before us the opportunity to forge for ourselves and for future generations a new world order, a world where the rule of law, not the law of the jungle, governs the conduct of nations."


    President George H. W. Bush, Address to the Nation on the Invasion of Iraq, Washington, D.C. January 16, 1991


    The rule of law is good enough for Iraq, but not for America.

    Comment on the quotations highlighted by Moarxenu:

    RIGHT

    Republican presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee abandons the rule of law in favour of the law of the jungle, 30 November 2010


    LEFT

    Democrat Bob Beckel, who has clearly forgotten anything he ever learned working for Robert F. Kennedy's presidential campaign in 1968.

    Hey, Bob, there's an internship program starting at the
    The Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights. You remember him, right?

    Robert Kennedy, Speech to the Johannesburg Bar Council, June 8th, 1966

    All respect I once had for Mike Huckabee has been completely wiped in my mind.He has no business being a talk show host mush less presidential candidate.

    When things get tough people show their true colors.
