Australia’s Most Wanted: Sarah Palin, Mike Huckabee, Bill O’Reilly…

Australia has strictly-enforced laws against inciting violence. Julian Assange — that infamous WikiLeaks subversive who’s trying to bring the Free World to its knees — is an Australian citizen.

Certain American politicians and shouting heads have talked about kidnapping/executing/assassinating Julian Assange. The offending blowhards include Sarah Palin, Mike Huckabee and Bill O’Reilly, among others.

Mike Huckabee has said Assange should be executed. Bill O’Reilly has urged the execution of the person who leaked the files, but so far not Assange himself. Sarah Palin said Assange should be “pursued with the same urgency we pursue al Qaeda and Taliban leaders.”

Dialing down the hate rhetoric just a notch, Peter King (R—Teabag) said the Secretary of State should officially designate WikiLeaks a “foreign terrorist organization.” Mitch McConnell (R—More Chins than the Hong Kong phone book) said the same thing, adding that if Assange hasn’t violated any U.S. laws, we need to change the law.

Assange’s lawyer — Robert Stary, based in Melbourne — said:

“Our main concern is really the possible extradition to the US. We've been troubled by the sort of rhetoric that has come out of various commentators and principally Republican politicians — Sarah Palin and the like — saying Mr. Assange should be executed, assassinated. Certainly if Sarah Palin or any of those other politicians come to Australia, for whatever purpose, then we can initiate a private prosecution, and that's what we intend to do.”

Sarah, Bill, Mike — Australia is supposed to be really nice this time of year. Wanna get away?

Put another wingnut on the barbie.

That's possibly a bit more whacko than Pat Robertson actively praying for the removal of sitting Supreme Court judges. At least it's close!

And the rightwing doofii pundits would probably justify their words by saying something stupid like "Well, this is what most of America thinks." Yeah, just like everybody in America hates Obama, and everybody wants the health care reform act repealed, etc. etc. etc.

Doesn't National Review host some kind of cruise every year, where a bunch of nutbags get on board and go out and have fun at sea? Why not get Bill and Sarah and Co. and a bunch of their most rabid followers, and send them on a National Review cruise to Australia. Now that would be fun.

This reads like one of those antihero stories that were so in vogue in the 1970's — no good guys, just bad guys.

I don't care what special sauce you choose to use on your wingnuts, I would guess even off a barbie Down Under, they would taste like the ass of a skunk.

If ever the Aussie moniker "Seppo" fit, Sarah, Bill and Mike would wear it like a glove.

jadedj: Our new unsung heroes.

Snave: That would be cool, lure the wingtards to a cruise ship. Tell them the ship will stay in international waters, and then accidentally on purpose -- oops, we crossed over into Australian waters. So sorry. And the Palin brigade gets taken away in handcuffs.

SW: But some of the bad guys are badder than others :)

MRM: LOL. A blind taste test -- is it Sarah Palin or is it skunk ass?

Randal: They're no longer a part of our Coalition Of The Willing -- nuke 'em!

Lisa: I'll check out that site where Jersey McJones commented. I probably won't comment and get embroiled in a free for all, but I'm glad to see that Jersey is still out there slugging away. One of the few Bring It On! people who hasn't fallen off the earth.

Demeur: Agreed.

and steered "western hero" to his blog knowing him and Jersey would have some good intellectual back and forths. And it's been Love-hate relationship ever since.
