Time Magazine reporter Grunwald calls for ‘deadly’ drone strike on Wikileaks’ Assange

21st Century Wire says…

“I can’t wait to write a defense of the drone strike that takes out Julian Assange.” - Michael Grunwald 

Time Magazine’s Senior national correspondent Michael Grunwald promotes the use of deadly drone strikes against Wikileaks founder Julian Assange

Although Grunwald has since issued an apology, we have seen an alarming rate of violent rhetoric condoned by those in the media and government over the past few years, including Obama joking about ‘Predator’ drone strikes on civilians, during a speech at a Correspondents dinner in 2010.

Grunwald is undoubtedly a main surrogate of  the left, back in April he exposed himself as a virtual crown prince at the altar of a totalitarian regime with his article titledTread on Me: The Case for Freedom From Terrorist Bombings, School Shootings and Exploding Factories.” The article was pure statist propaganda and only served to reveal the ‘true’ belief system of the far left, as Grunwald flaunted his hate for the individual in a way that would make MSNBC host Chris Matthews blush with envy.

Grunwald’s most recent incendiary words come at a peculiar time, just days after Assange expressed support for libertarian icon Ron Paul and his son Rand Paul. 

Despite the controversy over Julian Assange and his operation Wikileaks, I don’t think any rational person could condone such hateful and irresponsible rhetoric. 

Was this just a social experiment to gauge the reaction of the public, or was this more sensational fodder to promote Grunwald’s propaganda piece The New New Deal, which seems to justify Obama’s consolidation of America?

Whether you agree with the Paul family or not, It seems as though establishment is petrified over the rise of  libertarianism and constitutional ideals throughout the US.

Either way, the war on alternative media continues…

Assassination Time: Sr. journalist ‘can’t wait’ to justify drone that will kill Assange

The unethical and legally questionable statement made by TIME magazine’s senior national correspondent has been met with a barrage of criticism. Although Michael Grunwald deleted the comment and apologized, WikiLeaks is still pushing for his resignation.

The scandal was sparked by a Twitter post on Grunwald’s account which stated that he is eager to write an article on Julian Assange’s execution by a drone.  

WikiLeaks tweeted that they have sent a letter to the publication demanding Grunwald’s resignation. They have said that the magazine must show that journalists calling for the murder of other journalists is “never acceptable.”

    Grunwald is a hack writer. His comment on drones label him forever as incompetent and sadistic.

    No matter how he tries, he can’t put the genie back into the bottle. What is done is done. Said is said. Thought is thought.
    A “writer”(even a hack writer) has a responsibility to his audience. “Think before you publish. ”
    Making a public comment and then taking it back, because it is criticized, is cowardice.
    His comment on drones labels him forever as incompetent and sadistic.
