Why conservatives should support Julian Assange
Many conservative leaders have been attacking Julian Assange, including threatening to murder him. This is entirely inconsistent with what conservatives have been saying for decades about defending the taxpayer and about holding to scrutiny the government that is supposed to be serving the people.
Julian Assange has done the taxpayer a great service of informing him what was being done at his expense. He exposed corrupt and fraudulent practices that were being done by the government and informed the people of these wrongful practices. By logic of conservatism, he is a hero and should be treated as a hero.
Conservatives should therefore be supporting Julian Assange as the precise embodiment of what they have preached for decades.
