When the hole thing began back in 2010 and 2012 I took some bad positions on the topic of the allegations against Assange. Then #MeToo happened and educated people like me that we should first believe survivors of sexual abuse, and then the whole Putin and Trump connection made Assange much less of a martyr in my eyes. Regardless, the last thing I would want is for him to be extradited and tried in the US. Well, “Julian Assange: Sweden considers reviving rape inquiry” is the best headline of 2019 so far. It would in fact be absolutely hilarious, ironic and downright intersectionally magnificent if Sweden managed to get its hands on Assange first, on the rape charges and inadvertently ending up shielding him from USA persecution.
