Actually, it makes perfect sense. Until its recent purported dissolution, ACORN was America’s largest urban terrorist organization. Rathke, just like his inspiration Saul Alinsky, supports using extreme methods up to and including violence in order to achieve his goals. Assange hasn’t expressed support for using violence himself from what I can tell, but he doesn’t mind if American servicemen and women are killed or maimed as a result of his disclosure of secret U.S. military documents. Assange and Rathke are spiritual kith and kin.
On Christmas Day Rathke published a blog post on his website urging people to give money to WikiLeaks. I won’t repeat his money-laundering instructions here, but he explains how to get money to the Assange group.
Rathke is so messed up he actually believes that the Assange leaks will help improve the diplomatic process. “Diplomacy in my view will be improved by these leaks rather than harmed,” Rathke writes. ” On balance I think it’s not perfect, but it’s a good thing to know more rather than less and to have some accountability rather than all of this monkey business and mischief, so, yes, it’s worth your donation.”
That’s Rathke (pictured above at left) for you. Whatever helps to destroy the American system, he’s in favor of it.
He also makes an interesting analogy, comparing the troubles of ACORN, which collapsed in part because he covered up a million-dollar embezzlement, to those WikiLeaks is now experiencing. “Here is Wikileaks, which I have unfortunately come to identify with as being under what I would call ‘global ACORN attack,’ denied desperate resources because they are not a typical nonprofit on one hand and because of flat out laziness by the funds distributor on the other.”
What Rathke doesn’t seem to realize is that ACORN and WikiLeaks have something else in common: they’re both sinister organizations that deserve to be destroyed.
