Just in case anyone still thinks Julian Assange is some master hacker who just wants ‘the truth out there’ his Twitter escapades this week ought to help sort that out.
First, Assange engaged in a little Holocaust denial, then he accidentally messaged a fake Sean Hannity with promises of leaked intelligence. Just another week in which Assange bumblingly pushes anything benefitting Putin, whether it’s trying to stop Russian Collusion investigations, or encouraging Putin’s favorite people; the anti semites.
What makes this week so special is that Fox “News” loudmouth Sean Hannity now finds himself squarely in the spotlight thanks to his associations with Assange. On Saturday night Sean Hannity tweeted his fans a cryptic conspiracy clue, “Form Submission 1649.” His Twitter account was mysteriously deactivated shortly after. Ms. Dell Gilliam, bored and home with the flu, made a fake Hannity account that amassed 24,000 followers. At 4 am she received a private message from Julian Assange himself. She engaged in small talk, and it seemed as if Hannity and Assange had talked before.
Assange offered ‘Hannity’ tempting information on Senator Mark Wyden, the top Democrat on the Senate intelligence committee investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election. Thinking he was talking to Hannity, Assange twice suggested they use “other channels,” and offered no further details about how to communicate, appearing as if they already have established these “other channels.” One can assume Wyden is a target of Assange because he is looking into the Russian meddling.
This comes just a few days after Assange Tweeted a favorite Halocaust deniers trope, the old ‘lots of people died in the holocaust and also some Jews.’ It’s just further confirmation that Assange is not some neutral hacker, but is a full on Putin puppet pushing his pro Trump anti Semitic world agenda. This week, thanks to Assange’s bumbling and hubris, it also became clear that Hannity is Putin’s puppet too, a Tokyo Rose of the now.
