Former US Vice Presidential Candidate
Julian Assange should be targeted like the Taliban
former advisor to Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper
I think Assange should be assassinated, actually. (laughs) I think Obama should put out a contract or use a drone or something. I wouldn’t feel happy, uh, unhappy, if Assange disappeared.
FOX News commentator
A dead man can’t leak stuff…This guy’s a traitor, he’s treasonous, and he has broken every law of the United States. And I’m not for the death penalty, so…there’s only one way to do it: illegally shoot the son of a bitch.
FOX News commentator
[Assange] should be underground — six feet underground. … He should be put in jail or worse, hanged in a public forum.
ASSANGE IS A TERRORIST, AN ENEMY COMBATANT, AND NEEDS TO BE TREATED AS SUCH, SCHNITT HAS SAID REPEATEDLY ON HIS PROGRAM WHICH AIRS WEEKDAYS FROM 3:00pm-6:00pm EST.
Washington Times columnist
Headline: Assassinate Assange? Body: Julian Assange poses a clear and present danger to American national security … The administration must take care of the problem – effectively and permanently.
Julian Assange is not an American citizen and he has no constitutional rights. So, there’s no reason that the CIA can’t kill him. Moreover, ask yourself a simple question: If Julian Assange is shot in the head tomorrow or if his car is blown up when he turns the key, what message do you think that would send about releasing sensitive American data?
U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel and author
Julian Assange is a cyber terrorist in wartime, he’s guilty of sabotage, espionage, crimes against humanity — he should be killed, but we won’t do that.
I do not believe in leaks. I would execute leakers. They’re betraying our country.
Right-wing Nashville radio host
Folks like Julian Assange should be targeted as terrorists. They should be captured and kept in Guantanamo Bay, or killed.
Right-wing radio talk show host
Back in the old days when men were men and countries were countries, this guy would die of lead poisoning from a bullet in the brain.
Editor of the Weekly Standard
Why can’t we act forcefully against WikiLeaks? Why can’t we use our various assets to harass, snatch or neutralize Julian Assange and his collaborators, wherever they are?
G. Gordon Liddy
Former White House Adviser, talk show host
This fellow Anwar al-Awlaki – a joint U.S. citizen hiding out in Yemen – is on a ‘kill list’ [for inciting terrorism against the U.S.]. Mr. Assange should be put on the same list.
Columnist for National Review
If convicted, [Bradley Manning] should be placed against a wall and executed by firing squad. (If extradited here, Assange deserves the same sendoff.)
Editor-at-large of National Review Online
I’d like to ask a simple question: Why isn’t Julian Assange dead? …Why wasn’t Assange garroted in his hotel room years ago? It’s a serious question.
Blogger, Right Wing News
I won’t think twice if Julian Assange meets the cold blade of an assassin, and apparently a significant number of others don’t care for the guy.
New Zealand Herald Columnist
I suppose they’ll kill him, [Assange]. I would if I were them.
Former Governor of Arkansas and FOX News talk show host
Whoever in our government leaked that information is guilty of treason, and I think anything less than execution is too kind a penalty.
You Know Who They Are
“If legal attacks on Assange fail, he’ll simply be assassinated by the CIA.” -Paul Craig Roberts
President of Spork Marketing
Assange is not a political figure… He represents a danger to the USA and he should be killed ASAP.
