Big government helps protect our rights’

Michael Grunwald, the Time Magazine reporter who advocated killing Julian Assange with a drone strike, is a quintessential mainstream media hack – he describes himself as a “statist” and thinks big government actually exists to protect people’s rights.
On Saturday, Grunwald tweeted that he “can’t wait to write a defense of the drone strike that takes out Julian Assange”. Grunwald was forced to apologize but not before he complained about how his outburst, “gives Assange supporters a nice safe persecution complex to hide in”.
A picture soon emerged of Grunwald as an ardent supporter the state and a pathetic apologist for every control freak aspect of modern society you can imagine.
Back in April, Grunwald wrote a piece for Time advocating ubiquitous surveillance cameras, gun control, drone warfare, NSA spying, government regulation of business, and basically any and all “Big Brother intrusions into our private lives,” openly inviting the state to “tread on me” in order for “big government” to help “protect other important rights”.
