Michael Moore Posts Bail for WikiLeaks Honcho

12/14/2010 2:19 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Moore has anted up $20,000 to help post bail for WikiLeaks co-founder Julian Assange.

Michael Moore WikiLeaks Julian Assange

Moore just blogged, he will do anything he can to keep WikiLeaks "alive and thriving as it continues its work to expose the crimes that were concocted in secret and carried out in our name and with our tax dollars."

Moore takes note of Rep. Peter King, who called WikiLeaks a "terrorist organization."

Moore fired back, "And indeed they are! They exist to terrorize the liars and warmongers who have brought ruin to our nation and to others.

Perhaps the next war won't be so easy because the tables have been turned -- and now it's Big Brother who's being watched ... by us!"

It looks like Assange will get out on $310,000 bail.

UPDATE: Swedish prosecutors are challenging Julian's bail ... so he'll remain in custody for the time being.

Why does Michael Moore hate this country so much. He so wants this country to fail and he helps out anybody and everybody who hates the US. Doesn't he realize if he was in a Muslim country and tried to make a film that shows how bad the country is, he would be jailed and/or worse. He needs to open his eyes to the beautiful country we have and all of it's freedoms. Unfortunately one of the freedoms is... is that he can hate such a great place like the US.

Way to go Moore! Sadly most americans are too dumb to see that being a patriot means criticising the government with their lies and deceit. But some people are only able to see black and white and the moment something bad is said it translates in their minds to being anti-american.

This should come as no shock whatsoever.

A. Fatass hasn't been in the media for quite some time so what's a couple of fronted dollars to get free exposure on every major media outlet.

B. Fatass hates America as much as the s***bag he just bailed out.

C. Fatass is just jealous he wasn't able to give out these leaks himself. He prefers to just twist the truth in every movie he makes, interviewing the lowest common denominators in life knowing they will make fools of themselves for the publics amuzement.

ummmm........    

Well, tmz normally your research is spot on, however Moore did not pay Assange's bail perhaps he made a donation. Assanges actual bail was approx 315,000 US dollars with another approx 63000 additional security due when released.

ahhh, and the story changed as I typed kudos tmz for keeping it accurate, allegedly.

The WikiLeaker would be far safer in a British jail. Free speech will be safer so long as he is alive; so will the Internet! You don't have to like or agree with him, but look at the bigger picture. The bigger picture is not pretty these days and not just for the Wikileaker...
