Oh, the irony: Julian Assange’s support for Donald Trump comes back to haunt him | Salon.com

In many ways, Assange is a human synecdoche for a larger, troubling trend of supposedly leftist or progressive white men who, feeling threatened by women and people of color’s growing demands for equality, have turned their back on progressive values and helped usher in the rise of right-wing authoritarianism.Before college professor Jordan Peterson started using lobsters as a cudgel against women’s equality, before author Sam Harris started just-asking-questions about whether black people are inherently intellectually inferior, and before Joe Rogan built a podcast empire for white men who think they’re the ones who are truly oppressed, there was Assange, sitting in the Ecuadorian embassy and using his international stage to push the idea that the real fascists in this world were liberal Democrats and anti-rape feminists.
