Punishment for WikiLeaks

Punishment for WikiLeaks
by

What happens in China when someone says something the government doesn’t like? What happens in China when a news outlet publishes something the government doesn’t like? They get sent to prison (or worse). What happens in America when WikiLeaks publishes something the government doesn’t like? Should we do what China does? If you’re a conservative, chances are you will say yes, we need to be as bad as China. (If you’re a conservative and you disagree, please let me know. Leave a comment.)

What do you think our forefathers would have said? I’ll tell you. They made it part of the US Constitution. The very first amendment:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; …

That seems pretty obvious, doesn’t it? Our founding fathers knew how important it is to have a press that is free to expose wrongdoing and downright stupidity and ineptness in our government.

America needs WikiLeaks. Anyone who thinks they should be punished has no clue what our founding fathers intended when they created this country. They are against what America stands for.

Yes, the courts have, in my opinion, incorrectly and illegally weakened this amendment without changing the constitution. If they have their way, they will continue to weaken it further and further until we have no freedom of the press left. Without freedom of the press like WikiLeaks, our freedom is doomed. Stand up for freedom, stand up for America, stand up for freedom of the press, and stand up for WikiLeaks.

  1. This is another spot-on article for Just-Say-Why. You guys are right on on this issue. We are letting the whistle blowers go to jail and soon there will be no more whistle blowers and the asinine conservatives will have won at turning America into another China.

  2. Hey idiots! I’m a conservative with a college education which is more than I can say for you idiots. Where do you come up with this crap? Get you’re heads out of your butts and listen to something but your left wing communist crap. People who weaken America should be punished and wikileaks has done that. They should go to jail and so should you.

    You want a comment? How’s that?

    1. What an idiot. Did you even understand the article? Can you actually understand English with all your education? I can’t help but wonder if you’re not just a kid using your mommy’s computer trying to sound like a grown up.

      Can you prove any of your perspective? No, I didn’t think so.

      As for complaining about what we’re listening to, that’s some powerful hate you spew. I bet I know what you listen to.

  3. I, too, am a well educated Conservative with a Masters in business. However, I agree with you. Admitted, the current Republican party is not entirely aligned with the best interests of America or the ideals of her forefathers.

    You do yourself a disservice by grouping all Conservatives together in your posts. Many of us know what is wrong with our party and we’re doing our best to take back the Republican party from the fanatics. Unfortunately, though, the Tea Party and other extremists seems to be out voting the rest of us at the moment.

    Still, I agree, we need a free press.

  4. Indeed. We need free press but the DOS attacks on the businesses is not gaining any good will for WikiLeaks. This demonstrates that many around the word are finding the US government to be unresponsive to the people so instead of waiting for the US government to do the right thing, individual attacks are becoming more common. This does not bode well for the US.

  5. Hopefully this is the darkest hour for America in our lifetimes and we can start to rebuild our country starting today. Obummer, what are you thinking?
