Wikileaks, Rand Paul, and abortion

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, who is championing Edward Snowden and his NSA revelations, says that Republican libertarianism–and specifically Rand Paul along with his father Ron–are the “only hope” for American politics.  He praised their principled stands against drone assassinations and (wait for it) abortion!

I’m astonished that the seemingly leftist Assange who is accused of being a sexual predator might be pro-life.   (Do any of you know more about this or about his comment?)   Bringing the pro-life cause into the civil liberties crusade and the libertarian movement would be huge and perfectly fitting.  Unborn children have no civil liberties.

From Julian Assange calls Rand Paul the ‘only hope’ for US politics | The Daily Caller:

Wikileaks founder and editor-in-chief Julian Assange gave high praise to Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul and the American libertarian political movement during an online Q&A session early Friday morning.

Responding to questions during a Google Hangout session, Assange praised the college-aged supported libertarian faction of the Republican Party as the “only hope” for U.S. electoral politics.

“The libertarian aspect of the Republican Party is presently the only useful political voice really in the U.S. Congress,” said Assange.

Assange also praised Paul and former Texas Republican Rep. Ron Paul for their principled positions on the libertarianism, non-violence, drone warfare, extrajudicial killings and abortion.
