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.

We are at war and information is a weapon. Canadians are jealous of the USA. I can't blame Moore anymore than most politicians for wanting to make money for a comfortable lifestyle. However Moore panders to the minority, those who think they are smart but are quite the opposite.

wake up!

there are serious things going on in this country and we have a right to know about them. assange is helping to bring to light all of the lies our government tells us. we are not free, we are brainwashed into believing we are. the last 12 years have been a slow transition into stripping us of our freedoms. when you do something slow enough it's hard for people to really notice.

and isn't it innocent until proven guilty? it's pretty convenient that the day before the cables were going to be released he was arrested.

The only issue here is that he assisted in bailing out a rapist. Politics aside, the man was accused by multiple women of sexual assalt, plain and simple. He is a moron.

...

have you actually read the allegations, or are you just transfixed by the headlines?

The story reads more like consensual sex followed by issues raised over condom use and Assange's refusal (or unwillingness) to be tested for STDs.

Michael Moore is a dirt bag. One day the guy is going to have to answer to the man upstairs for what he has done. I surely would not want to be in his shoes.

First of all, everyone who wrote on this saying that hes a douchebag for wanting to let Assange out are complete idiots. Shows how brainwashed everyone is, and maybe society is as stupid as the government us to be. Assange spread millions of secret government do***ents showing what WRONGFULL and foolish acts the U.S gov't is doing. Its exposing all of the things that they hide from us, the public, its citizens from knowing and now that it all came out, their embarrased and shamed and THAT is why hes in jail.

The whole rape thing is just a cover up and their paying that b***h money to lie and stain his name. Open your eyes people, not everything in this world is Black and White

I thought Assange is being held on sexual assault charges. So Moore is helping someone who may have physically harmed a woman. Somewhere Gloria Allred is burning her copies of Sicko and Fahrenheit 9/11.

He bailed out a rapist. Oh well, as Woopi Goldberg would say, "it was not rape rape".

WOW, currently 40% are A OK for Fat a$$ to help pay to release a Rapist!!! You wander how far the left is out of touch with reality. This is another example.

He wasn't in jail for WIKILEAKS. I don't think he should have released everything. At least filter some of the really Important things out, but once it's out there for the News, it's pretty much to late. It's news, He's a Reporter I guess, he can do it I suppose, but the Soldier that Released all those Do***ents, well if he's not HUNG for treason, he should at the very least spend the rest of his life in JAIL!!! If in the end he is just let go, it'll happen yet again. If a foreign Spy did this, what would happen? It's no different, in fact it should be worse.

Michael Moore should be in jail. At the very least Move to Cuba since he likes it there so much. Then they can take all his wealth. Never to see it fat a$$ again.

To poster # 1 and all the others who thinks that Moore and others hate this country.


No we do not hate this country, this country hate this country by liying and making up wars all over the world just to own oil.

This country kills innocent people.
This country help Sadam and when he decide not to cooperate anymore with the USA, they took him down by bombarding the whole country.

This country is the true axes of evil.

Peace out to Mr Assange and all his supporters around the world.
