Julian Assange’s arrest at the Ecuadorian Embassy in central London is making Twitter erupt.
Neocon Never Trumpers and Hillary Clinton supporters have come out of the woodwork to defend the arrest of the whistleblower.
Prime Minister Theresa May, who has derailed Brexit so far, lauded Assange’s arrest. The establishment Prime Minister lauded Assange’s arrest and proclaimed “In the United Kingdom, nobody is above the law.”
British Foreign Minister Sajid Javid echoed May’s sentiments in stating that “no one is above the law”.
Nearly 7yrs after entering the Ecuadorean Embassy, I can confirm Julian Assange is now in police custody and rightly facing justice in the UK. I would like to thank Ecuador for its cooperation & @metpoliceuk for its professionalism. No one is above the law

On the American side, Neera Tanden, the President of the Center for American Progress, started off by labeling Assange as an “agent of a proto-fascist state”.
There are many cultists on this site, but the Assange cultists are the worst. Assange was the agent of a proto fascist state, Russia, to undermine democracy. That is fascist behavior. Anyone on the left should abhor what he did. Not celebrate it.

Former Clinton crony, Claude Taylor gloated about Assange’s arrest and made sure to take swipes at other figures like Sean Hannity, Nigel Farage, and Dana Rohrbacher who he believes were Assange’s “enablers”.
Does anyone have a photo spread of all the enablers and fellow travelers who visited Assange? Hannity, Nigel Farange, Chucky Johnson, Dana Rohrbacher? Who am I missing. https://t.co/u5AthQ6Hl4

On the establishment Right, seasoned neocon compromiser Ben Sasse played the Russia card and praised Assange’s arrest.
It’s good that Assange will be getting his day in court but let’s be clear: Vlad Putin doesn’t give a damn about human rights.
Dictator defends his lackey.

Gate-keeping conservative commentator Ben Shapiro also retweeted numerous establishment figures who praised the arrest of Assange.
On top of that, Meghan McCain went on The View and said she hopes Assange “rots in hell” for the alleged threat that Assange posed for national security.
Assange was arrested on April 11, 2019 in the Ecuadorean embassy in London for an alleged computer hacking conspiracy with Chelsea Manning.
Several Trump supporters like Paul Joseph Watson came to Assange’s defense and praised him for his work in exposing the military-industrial complex.
Watson even called for Trump to pardon Assange for his work exposing the Deep State.
Assange exposed war crimes committed at the behest of neo-con warmongers.
It was the war crimes that harmed America's reputation, not Wikileaks.
This is perfectly in line with the non-interventionist, America first platform Trump ran on.
Trump must pardon Julian Assange.

Over the past few years, Assange has had numerous run-ins with the law.
On November 2010, Sweden issued an international arrest warrant for Assange based on allegations of sexual assault and rape. Assange turned himself into British authorities on December 7, 2010 but was then released on bail a few days afterwards.
Ecuador granted Assange political asylum after he broke his bail conditions in 2012.
