Some notes :
RT is a propaganda organization working for the russian state.
However, their 'anti western' propaganda isn't ordinary
propaganda because what they say (about 'the west') is usually
true. RT propaganda takes the form of libertarian criticism
(with the caveat of course that it's directed against 'western'
states...never against the russian state)
I haven't checked the whole interview, but going by the above
quote, Assange seems to be forgetting his libertarian (or civil
libertarian, whatever) leaning and instead parroting the
pentagon/kremlin line on 'islamic terrorism'.
But in reality, "the reality of Islamic terrorism," is close to
the reality of the bogeyman.
Considering the extent of western crimes and imperialism, there
should be a lot more 'terrorism' coming from the victims. Oddly
enough, there isn't. So one can either believe that captain
americunt is saving the universe...or else, the terrorist don't
really exist. Except of course as false flag ops.
