Sweden Drops Rape Charges Against Assange, Wikileaks Founder Formally Requests Asylum in France

Now that rape is legal in Sweden, they’ve decided it’d be hypocritical of them to charge Assange with such a low level crime. As such, they’ve dropped charges today — after 7 years of abject fuckery.

“According to Swedish legislation, a criminal investigation is to be conducted as quickly as possible. In order to proceed with the case, Julian Assange would have to be formally notified of the criminal suspicions against him.

“We cannot expect to receive assistance from Ecuador regarding this. Therefore the investigation is discontinued.”

British authorities said they’d still arrest him, should he be so bold as to step outside the embassy, for a failing to surrender to a court offense — which is punishable up to 1 year in prison.

“Now that the situation has changed and the Swedish authorities have discontinued their investigation into that matter, Mr Assange remains wanted for a much less serious offence. The MPS will provide a level of resourcing which is proportionate to that offence.”

“Ecuador will now be intensifying its diplomatic efforts with the UK so that Julian Assange can gain safe passage in order to enjoy his asylum in Ecuador.”

If I was Assange, I’d be suspect as fuck to step out of that embassy — following 5 grueling years of self imposed captivity. With Assange out of the embassy, he’s a much easier target for anyone who’d like to kill him.

Assange’s attorney, Juan Branco, said the Wikileaks founder would be formally requesting asylum in France today.

    One would hope Assange knows what a dead man’s switch is. Assange might be better off going to Russia than the rapefugee infested France…just for style.

    Who the fuck cares about this loser. Can’t feel sorry for him since he’s banging Pamela Anderson in his Ecuadorian Embassy palatial digs. Upon his release, we can appropriately beat his ass.

    Sweden is a very permissive society and here are the results:

    Sweden has the highest rape rate in Europe. The Swedish police recorded the highest number of offenses – about 63 per 100,000 inhabitants – of any force in Europe, in 2010. The second-highest in the world. I believe it has become much worse since then.

    Violent crime is up and civil unrest, well we’ve seen the reports lately from there. All is not well in the land of Swedes.

      Swedes are just as nationalistic as most; however, the destruction of their society is not organic because Sweden would be a very permissive society…it is by design, Sweden is being raped by the usual synagogue suspects:

      This scheme was outlined and follows The Frankfurt School of teachings- destruction of nation/state, community and family :
      1. The creation of racism offences.
      2. Continual change to create confusion
      3. The teaching of sex and homosexuality to children
      4. The undermining of schools’ and teachers’ authority
      5. Huge immigration to destroy identity.
      6. The promotion of excessive drinking
      7. Emptying of churches
      8. An unreliable legal system with bias against victims of crime
      9. Dependency on the state or state benefits
      10. Control and dumbing down of media
      11. Encouraging the breakdown of the family

      See #5 above, ring a bell?
      Munzenberg summed up the Frankfurt School’s long-term operation thus: ‘We will make the West so corrupt that it stinks.’
