The establishment has revealed the degree to which it fears Christine through its own coercive actions. The net result of their efforts will be, instead of silencing her, Assange supporters listening more intently than ever to what she has to say. They will work even harder to ensure that her voice is heard loud and clear.
anyone who supports, allies, or works with Wikileaks is a potential target for complicated, sometimes entirely fabricated, character assassination. In the case of Assange and Todd and Clare, the fabricated allegations of pedophilia were proven to be blatantly false. This casts light on other smears surrounding Wikileaks supporters, and suggests that the organization poses a serious threat to establishment interests.
