Democratic Party operative Bob Beckel calls for assassinating WikiLeaks' Julian Assange

Julian Assange, an Australian, is the founder, editor-in-chief and director of WikiLeaks, an international non-profit journalistic organization that publishes secret information, news leaks, and classified media from anonymous sources. Within a year of its 2006 launching, WikiLeaks’ website claimed a database of more than 1.2 million documents.
In November 2010, when Hillary Clinton was U.S. secretary of state, WikiLeaks collaborated with major global media organizations to release the State Department’s diplomatic “cables” in redacted format.
During the current presidential election season, WikiLeaks has been doing the job of America’s establishment media by exposing the corruption of Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) via the release of their respective emails. See:

Assange promises that WikiLeaks will release proof that Hillary has rigged the elections.
Yesterday, WikiLeaks sent out an alarming tweet that “Hillary Clinton strategist Bob Beckel called for WikiLeaks editor Julian Assange to be assassinated”:
WikiLeaks tweet about Bob Beckel
The tweet contains a video snippet of Beckel on FoxNews, saying:

“The way to deal with this is pretty simple — you get Special Ops (Operations) forces. I mean, a dead man can’t leak stuff. This guy’s [Assange] a traitor, treasonous, and and he’s broken every law of the United States. The guy ought to be — and I’m not for the death penalty, so if I’m not for the death penalty, the only way to do it is illegally shoot the son of a bitch.”

Blog and news sites, including big names like ZeroHedge and Pamela Geller, are reporting Beckel’s vile remarks as contemporaneous, in the context of WikiLeaks’ current exposés of Hillary and the DNC.
Not so.
Beckel actually made those remarks 5 years ago in December 2011. Here’s a longer FoxNews video, wherein Beckel was part of a panel discussing how the U.S. should deal with Assange and WikiLeaks for their release of the State Department’s diplomatic cables. Beckel’s “shoot the son of a bitch” remarks begin at the 0:57 mark:
[youtube=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rImgsRg-a-8]
That it was 5 years ago that Beckel had called for assassinating Julian Assange doesn’t make it less reprehensible. It’s also ridiculous for Beckel to call Assange “a traitor” and “treasonous,” because Assange is Australian, not a U.S. citizen.
So who is Bob Beckel?
According to Wikipedia, 67-year-old Bob Beckel is a political analyst-pundit who began his professional life as a Democratic administration official and Democratic Party operative. He was a Deputy Assistant Secretary of State (1977) and Special Assistant to the President for Legislative Affairs (1978) in the Carter administration; the campaign manager for Walter Mondale’s 1984 presidential campaign; founder of the consulting & lobbying firm Bob Beckel & Associates (1984); campaign manager of a Democratic U.S. Senate candidate in Idaho (2002); USA Today columnist (2005-2015); FoxNews “token angry liberal” co-host (2011-2015); and since October 2015, CNN commentator on the 2016 election.
Wikipedia makes no mention of Beckel being a Hillary Clinton strategist, nor have I found confirmation that he is a Hillary strategist, other than what the WikiLeaks tweet claims. But all that doesn’t mean he isn’t a Hillary Clinton strategist, given Beckel’s history as a Democratic Party operative.
There must be a reason why WikiLeaks sent out its tweet of Beckel’s 5-year-old call to assassinate Assange. Perhaps Assange has received death threats and does not want the same fate that befell DNC staffer and WikiLeaks informant Seth Rich. (See “WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange: murdered DNC staffer was source of leaked DNC emails”)

The fact that Beckel sought to incite violence ought to be enough to present to a district attorney. But, given the P.C. climate and the casual disregard for the Rule of Law these days, I doubt that will happen. So it looks like we’re stuck with Beckel for the time being. Ray of Hope: People are waking up to the load of crap the mainstream media is. We’re on the verge of an ideological revolution. It may still be ten years out, but happen it will. Hopefully, Beckel will be dead by then.

Uh Huh, YEAH, RIGHT: Ike, THE PETER PRINCIPLE PERSONIFIED, who gave us Earl Warren and the Decision to strip this Nation of its Industry, was a “great President,” my ass!!!

“Supposedly-conservative NewsMax is among more than a dozen media organizations (e.g., the usual suspects NBC, CBS, PBS, Reuters, WaPO) which are Clinton Foundation donors.” So what? It’s fairly common for big business to contribute heavily to BOTH sides in politics (And we know that Clinton Foundation is just Democrat Party spelled more innocently…),but that doesn’t necessarily mean that’s who they side with,they’re just “hedging their bets”,it’s the CYA thing. Never know when you’ll need them…. Depending on your parameters of “clean”,EVERYBODY’S hands are unclean.

Well yes, Steve. I think that qualifies as making a “terrorist threat”. Or are these laws selectively enforced. Some of the news parasites have been treading dangerously close lately. Freedom of speech is dead in this country. Our kids are seeing examples of this daily. Look at the so-called “media”. What they’re really doing is modeling behavior. The model says, “there is an acceptable plan and our owners create that. Anyone who strays off the reservation will be dealt with”. That is their new function. There is no longer even the pretense of fairness or objectivity. They carry the water… Read more »

lophatt, you are absolutely correct: I learned this from my very bright, aware, non-conforming lead hand, Kody Sinclair, an extraordinary example of stand-up, free-thinking Canadian w/backbone enough for three at age 20.
BUT he is the grand exception, as far too many refuse to study, analyse, or assume responsibility for anything. Nor do I exxagerate when I say ‘anything’ as they will not take responsibility even for the smallest of potatoes..

Becker has a long history of abuse and when he was on The Five, I had to turn the station. He was so dug in for the Democratic Party, he would refuse to chastise when they did something blatantly wrong. Some days, he was just downright vile. This behavior is no surprise, but sadly, the double standard applies here. Just look at the bs that Trump has had to defend when he wasn’t even calling for someone to die. Most of us realize it is nothing but a distraction to get Trump off point and doing some damage to Clinton.… Read more »

Glenn47 . . . . I am with you. Everytime Becktel opened his mouth on The Five, hateful rhetoric spewed from it. He hasn’t the personal integrity to comport himself in a public forum. I for one feel some degree of sorrow that secrets of the US are being broadcast . . . BUT since we have a next of vipers without the Washington, DC stronghold, it is good that there be some proof as to the allegations of various illegal goings on in the capital. What a travesty that we have a bought and paid for black woman who… Read more »

Auntie, the sad thing was the lying bill of goods sold to the American public on how such a fair and honest person she is and how she is great in pursuing justice. What a load that was. She is nothing but Holder in a skirt.

(Sarc.) One has to respect Mr. Beckel for his fear of hurting the American people. Those in Deep State are striving to uphold the high st standards of government, science, agriculture, and industry, and if the Shadow Masters find it necessary to make the lives of the American people transparent so that they can allow a President to be assassinated, lead us into a nation of mercenaries engaged in continual wars and increase of indebtedness to central banks, and ship our industrial base ad cross the Pacific, they should become opaque.

If I were Julian, I would request a complete security overhaul of the Ecuadorian Embassy in London. Hopefully, he won’t get the same response that Ambassador Stevens got in Libya.

Beckel is a smashmouth dry drunk opiate abuser who was fired from Fox.
The only salient point in this story is the Dems omnipresent double standard.

All media is comprised of outright lies or partial truths; it is babble and confusion. This includes the majority of alternative media as well.
It is poison for the mind if consumed too frequently and in too great a quantity. The only antidote is to question everything and take time to reflect.

Hello, stlonginus!
From your writing it seems you may have read Dr Richard Weaver’s ‘Ideas Have Consequences’ at some point in your learning. Way back in 1948 he warned about the encroachment of TV & movies into our consciousness, gradually replacing newspapers and radios, which made a minimal demand on people to think.

What else could we expect from an over-rated, has been, arrogant, drunken slob. If I were Assange I would put a reward out for a hit on Beckel. Better yet I would say he had insulted Mohammed so that there would be a fatwah against him. That might make the liberals less inclined to be supporters of the ‘religion of peace’

Well, why do they put him on? Does he work cheap? I suppose he’s just an instigator or a “straight man” for the other twits to comment off of. The best solution to this is simply turn it off.
I’ll go a step farther. After you turn it off, go to the garage and get a set of wire cutters. You won’t be missing a thing.

I wonder what the reaction would be if Wayne LaPierre would make a statement like this . Or Trump ; oops , we have seen this one !
So much for the peace loving liberal mindset . As long as u think like them , you a good boy………..Leave the plantation , you know the rest .
As far as Shrillary goes , if you put the nuclear trigger , near her finger , she will make Hitler , Stalin , Pol Pot , Mao seem like rank amateurs in about 28 minutes .
