BASED: Azerbaijani President Smacks Down BBC Reporter on Julian Assange Hypocrisy
Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev called out a BBC correspondent Orla Guerin for her nation’s hypocrisy with regards to freedom of the press.
Aliyev explained to the BBC hack last November that social media is wide open in his country, and he blamed the West for painting a false picture about his nation. This is when he went on the attack against the hypocritical reporter based on her country’s treatment of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.
“Let’s talk about Assange. How many years [had] he spent in the Ecuadorian Embassy? And for what? And where is he now? For journalistic activity, you kept this person hostage, actually killing him morally and physically. You did it, not us,” Aliyev said.
“It is not a question – it is [an] accusation. You talk like a prosecutor. Why? If you are so democratic and so objective, then why [do] you keep Assange in prison?” he stated, adding that the West should “look [in] the mirror” before “coming and lecturing” others.

Big League Politics has reported on Assange getting tortured behind bars for the crime of exposing state and corporate corruption:
“Whistle-blower Julian Assange, who has been charged with 18 felony counts by the Trump administration, is in grave condition at Belmarsh prison as his health is deteriorating rapidly.
His world-renowned journalism organization, WikiLeaks, released the following tweet yesterday updating their followers on the status of Assange…
At the present time, Assange is serving a 50-week sentence in a British prison for the alleged crime of skipping bail. He was detained because Ecuador finally gave him up after granting him asylum in the British embassy for many years.
The U.S. has charged Assange with 17 felony counts under the Espionage Act and an additional unsealed felony charge. It is widely believed that emails from Hillary Clinton and the DNC published by WikILeaks in the lead up to the 2016 presidential election helped seal Donald Trump’s victory.
While the deep state wants to paint Assange as a criminal actor and a subversive enemy of the state, he has released a tremendous amount of information that has exposed government and private corruption that would have been otherwise ignored by the fake news media…
Free speech advocates on the Left and the Right are up in arms about the mistreatment of Assange and the precedent his prosecution may set against the 1st Amendment. The Trump administration is attempting to extradite him to the U.S. so he can be formally charged in the court of law.”
Countries like the U.S. and Britain have no room to lecture any nation considering the abuses they have committed and funded all throughout the world.
