This is CIA feminism at its most pernicious. A bad faith attack trying to smear a good faith defender of Julian Assange with the entirely bogus insinuation that he’s a rape apologist.

Probably also worth noting that one of the main drivers of this letter has tweeted things herself that are a lot more explicit than anything Melzer wrote:

Nothing about the unproven allegations against Assange has changed between 2010 and 2019. The only thing that’s changed is a massive amount of exculpatory evidence has surfaced, and the mass media smear campaigns have grown far more vicious.

I write about the end of illusions.
