Letter to Prime Minister Scott Morrison, Australia …

By Pamela Anderson

November 19, 2018 “Information Clearing House” –

Dear Prime Minister Morrison,

Your comments following my appeal to you on 60 Minutes were disappointing.

You trivialized and laughed about the suffering of an Australian and his family. You followed it with smutty, unnecessary comments about a woman voicing her political opinion.
We all deserve better from our leaders, especially in the current environment.

Following the show, 60 Minutes canvassed the views of Australians online. People responded in their thousands, overwhelmingly – 92% of more than 7000 – in favour of bringing Julian home.

Rather than making lewd suggestions about me, perhaps you should instead think about what you are going to say to millions of Australians when one of their own is marched in an orange jumpsuit to Guantanamo Bay – for publishing the truth. You can prevent this.

Julian Assange will soon face his Seventh Christmas isolated from family and friends, after 8 years of detention without charge. For six years he has been refused any access to fresh air, sunshine, exercise, or proper medical or dental care.

In February 2016, the UN Working Group on Arbitrary Detention (WGAD) stated that his detention was unlawful.

For the past seven months Mr. Assange has been denied the right to receive visitors, use internet or telecommunications.

This Australian is not getting a fair go; his human rights are being openly violated.

I am hopeful Australia now has a leader with strength and conviction enough to bring him home.

Australia and the world are watching how you treat your citizen, your publisher, in dire need of help from his own government.

With hope,

Pamela Anderson

    Assange can leave his embassy any time he likes … and face justice.

    But frankly, I think his voluntary self-incarceration is even more like justice .. because it also shuts him down. And the longer he stays, the juster it gets.

    May he die there.

      Why? Don’t you like the truth or its exposure?

    Absolutely YES, bring our Aussie Assange home! Thank you Pamela. It’s time for PM to do his bit unlike all before him as this may raise his popularity as a PM. C’mon peeps, would you let your sons and daughters be treated like this just for posting on the internet … no secrets, no games. Time’s up for the western regimes who think it’s OK to ruin people’s lives. How good are the national passports when we run a risk every time we cross borders?

    Russell, when I hear claptrap, like ‘Christian patriarchal society’, I fear for our civilised values. It is meaningless jargon that is oppressive of our individual Western freedoms. It is these values and freedoms that a one-sided ‘truth’ teller like Assange is threatening.

    All countries dealing with real politic in an increasingly hostile world need tools to fight with, and not be betrayed by a self-glorifying creep like Assange.

    Pamela Anderson would earn my respect if she didn’t trot out a rehearsed pro-Assange line to do with her personal relationship with him. Prostitutes don’t pretend to be political commentators.

    I don’t know which demographic she moves in but most people I know do not admire Assange for his treachery. The reason he has lingered so long in the Embassy is that there is no groundswell of support for this unlovely character.

    Never mind Morrison .. wait until you get self-serving Shorten.

    And Peter, nobody is ‘raping’ Pamela Anderson by calling our her hypocrisy and questioning her motives.

      Excuse me, but I was using an analogy.

      A well known comparison example, due to its many factual Court Cases bought to public attention over past decades, which it would be said, were due to (borrowing Russell’s favored term which you criticised) a ‘Christian patriarchal society’.

      But I would add the word, Repressive.

        But is the word ‘repressive’ required before ‘Christian patriarchal society’? – It, in itself, being repressive.

        Then there is the word, ‘Christian’. Now that could be replaced with any other religion. For instance, Judaism, Islam, Hindu.

        So therefore it would be ‘religious patriarchal societies are bloody repressive.’

      Read up on your history, Viv. Women have been written out of history by the Christian movement since the New Testament was concocted by Saul/Paul for his own and capitalists’ benefit. Prior to it most societies were matriarchal. It’s all about money and wealth accumulation, and honest forthright people and groups like Julian Assange and GetUp are seen as enemies to that goal.

      Facts are hardly “one-sided”. They are black and white.

      Lies, murder and corruption are/should NOT be admirable nor permissible tools to ‘fight’ with.

      If you call Assange a “self-glorifying creep”, what the hell is TRUMP, al-Assad, Putin, May, or any number of crooked Australian politicians?

      You must move in a very small circle if most people you know think Assange is treacherous.

      Please appraise us of Pamela Anderson’s hypocrisy. Try including some verifiable facts in your next post.

    Pamela Anderson, hypocrite, made a career of being a sex object.

    Gimme a break, lady …

    • Russell

      November 21, 2018 at 6:27 am

      That isn’t what the subject is about, is it Emmanuel?

      You are just as knee-jerking sexist as Morrison, and most other slaves to the Christian patriarchal society, as you have so eloquently displayed.

      And what is so wrong with the truth being exposed?

    • Peter Black

      November 21, 2018 at 1:02 pm

      Usually I like some of your writing, but not this time.
      Yes, Pamela Anderson has made a career out of being a Bay Watch sex symbol. Agreed.

      But, let’s compare this with .. a woman who works as a prostitute. Does the prostitute have a right to be spoken to with respect in public, and not to be raped ? Most of us would agree, that yes, the prostitute does have the same rights to respect as do the rest of us, regardless of her career.

      So it is not Pamela Anderson who is the hypocrite, but our unelected acting PM who proclaims to be a Christian, but who acted as a smutty, grubby, little creep.

    Julian Assange is a hero of the modern world and should be knighted. Telling the truth to the world is essential to stop the global corruption and halt the rise of capitalist dictatorships. It is an admirable and rare quality these days.

    Like Trump who called (more than once) the burned-out town of Paradise, “Pleasure” (he doesn’t even know his own country or even bother to find out the name of the town in the USA he is visiting), Morrison should be ashamed of his behaviour since white-anting his way to PM. But I doubt he even knows what the word “ashamed” means.

    Morrison is just a stumbling, bumbling fool who can’t string a sentence together off-the-cuff when asked questions in public. It seems three word slogans and beer spilling are his forte.

    The sooner we get rid of him, and those pulling his strings, the better.
