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.

Assange is not an American. Moore is. Moore just signed his own death warrant. If he comes home he won't last long. Some citizen will more than likely kill him . I personally would just beat the fat **** silly for just being a turd tosser in general. But people are nuts. What a dumbass. Suicide by proxy of bail of a rapist.That's new.

I like Michael Moore til he tries to bail out Assange. I understand that we transparent government out there, but there are dangerous people out wants to hurt us or even kill. I don't understand these hackers and supporters grasp reality of this issue.

ummmm........    

#97 are you aware that our government has continually lied and lied and lied some more to us. Which as killed more people, our government lying us into war, or some actual transparency that is at best 2 years old? We have a very big problem here. Take a look around wikileaks (actually one of the numerous mirror sites) there is just horrible stuff going on, and it needs to be exposed so that it can stop.

Out of all the comments I just scanned (no pun intended)90% of them were stupid, ignorant, brain-washed idiots who THINK we live in a great country. Thank you #95, #99, #101 (and anyone else who did) for saying something true and right.

Have you ever noticed that most of the posters from other countries like to say how much they hate America? Now they love Moore who's no more than a fat liar who twists anything and everything he can to prove his own OPINIONS. It's funny that all these people who post on here hate America but can't wait to watch our movies, read our books, watch our sports and come to visit the greatest nation in the world. These are the same people who love Michael Jackson....enough said.

And thats the truth    

Kiana,ummmmm if you dont like America, get the hell out of here and take Michael Moore with you. Then when you live somewhere else for at least 5 years, come back and tell us how terrible the US is then. I will guarantee you that you will not find a better country to live in.

Hey,Hoser genius,the word you're not even aware that you need to use here is "to" not "too". The rest is pretty atrocious,TOO, but the first bit stands out. No, I can't take the opinion of a semi-literate seriously.

Because people do not believe it is a good idea at all to plaster classified information all over the internet for the world to see doesn't mean they believe everything the government is shoving down their throats. It doesn't mean they have their head in the sand and it doesn't mean they have to be conservatives.Sometimes it just means they do not believe it is a good idea at all to plaster classified information all over the internet for the world to see. Someone said America is the only country upset about this. Why is that? Because THEY ARE AMERICAN DO***ENTS. I realize other country's are addressed in them but, they are our do***ents. copied illegally by our people, written by our people, mainly about our people. Though Julian is deplorable and sickening to me...he is not an American citizen. More deplorable is the people who are Americans that helped him obtain this info. and I am not picking sides here and saying the citizens (and rest of the world) have a right to know this info. Thats not a fight i want to get into right now. But, handing it over to someone who is not even American so they can plaster it all over the internet for the world is sickening to me. Julian isn't doing this to open American's eyes. and neither is whoever helped wikileaks with this. Just don't believe they are or that makes you the sheep. This man isn't an American hero looking out for the good of Americans. Be for real. And Michael Moore needs to stay his a$$ out of it unless or until this man is arrested for something that actually has to with Wikileaks. Mike, you don't need anymore bad press so save your money and don't spend it on rape charges if you really believe in his cause.
Anyway...continue being spiteful to each other just remember one thing...Americans know we aren't loved by the world. We know people think we are stupid, we know people hate us for whatever reasons they have. We know it's not all about left or right. We know there are a lot of things you can say to and about us but, please don't say this while tooting Canada's horn. thats the real insult here. Canada??? Seriously?? How are you guys even a country?? If anyone ever tries to take you off the map you better not pi$$ off the only people that would give a crap.

And thats the truth    

I had read a post on Yahoo once, from a person that had lived in Sweden. She was from the US and she moved back here. She made a little less then $100,000.00 a year. Sounds great right? She paid 75 percent in taxes. She could not afforg to purchase many fruits and vegetables because they were too expensive. The only meat she could afford was deer meat. If you wanted to move to a specific area, your name was added to a waiting list that was 2 years long. She had gotten sick once and she waited all day to see a doctor. The doctor told her to come back next week if she still does not feel well. She came back the following week only to stand in line all day to hear the same thing. Sounds like a great place to live right?

I make period costumes and sell them online. I can tell you right now, if I send a package to another counry, I have to mark the package as a gift or their government TAXES the package according to the value of it. I sent 2 costumes to a lady in either Sweden or Switzerland, (cant remember). I told the shipping clerk to mark the package as a gift and she did not. My customer had to pay $125.00 in a tax before she could get her costumes.

I really think that Micheal Moore and all of the other America haters that were born here really need to move elsewhere. The grass is not always greeners on the other side. Within 6 months you would be crying to get back to this terrible country we call America.

@ melissa, time to get real. The very same governments that are crying foul over the WikiLeaking of their secret communications want the power to intercept our private emails and phone conversations. They demand the right to privacy for themselves while invading ours...
