Pamela Anderson Defends WikiLeaks From Meghan McCain: ‘How Many People Has the American Government Killed, Innocently?’

The Wrap Friday, 6 September 2019
Pamela Anderson Defends WikiLeaks From Meghan McCain: ‘How Many People Has the American Government Killed, Innocently?’Pamela Anderson stopped by ABC’s “The View” Friday and defended WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange from Meghan McCain, who called him a “cyber-terrorist,” and Joy Behar, who questioned if he supports President Donald Trump.

Asked about Assange’s state as he serves out an 11-month prison sentence in London while awaiting possible extradition to the United States, Anderson said her friend’s health has deteriorated and he’s lost weight, but “he is the most resilient person” she’s ever met.

“It is devastating that people have fallen for this campaign, especially in America,” she said, calling it “frustrating” that Americans have “embraced all this propaganda.”

If he’s extradited, she said, “I don’t think he’ll make it.”

Anderson continued to extol the virtues of the WikiLeaks founder, fighting back when McCain called him “a cyber-terrorist.”

“You know who’s a national security risk is the military,” she said. “How many people have the American government killed, innocently, and how many have WikiLeaks?”

As the studio audience cheered her response, McCain probed, “So, you think the military is putting the government at risk?”

McCain then addressed a cheering male audience member: “Oh, calm down, Sir.”

“War crimes need to be punished and they haven’t. The war crimes that he’s exposed, no one’s done anything about it, but they put him in jail to shut him up,” Anderson responded.

Assange was arrested in April in London after Ecuador president Lenin Moreno withdrew its offer of asylum in its embassy in the London capital. The U.S. Justice Department announced then that it was seeking extradition so the 47-year-old Australian national can face a federal charge of conspiracy to commit computer intrusion for agreeing to help break a password to a classified U.S. government computer.

Behar asked, “A lot of people say that … Assange interfered in the 2016 election by conspiring with Russia by releasing emails, hacked emails, which hurt Hillary Clinton. It’s almost like, ‘Is he responsible for giving us Trump?'”

Anderson responded, “Hillary Clinton is responsible for Trump.”

Asked if Assange is a Trump supporter, Anderson said, “No. No. No. I was with him.”

After appearing on the talk show, Anderson posted a series of tweets denouncing military spending.

I don’t feel comfortable
that 70% of taxes in USA goes to military.
For what?
To start wars at their discretion ?
War is a business.
governments need to be held accountable.
They are making these toxic decisions
In our name. $

Later in the thread, she also wrote, “we need less talk shows and more investigative journalists.”
