Activist publishes 11,000 Wikileaks Twitter direct messages

An activist has published 11,000 direct messages on Twitter between the Wikileaks account and a group of its supporters. The direct messages were published by Emma Best on her own website. Her Twitter account states that she is a journalist on the East Coast. Best has been critical of Wikileaks and has advocated for government transparency. Some of the direct messages were previously published, but this is the first time all of the direct messages have been posted.

The messages show that Wikileaks wanted the GOP to defeat Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential elections. "We believe it would be much better for the GOP to win," the Wikileaks account states to a supporter named "Emmy B" in one of the messages from 2015.

Why would they do that?

Clinton: I don't recall joking about droning Julian Assange

Oh.

    We separate the sexes based on biological sex and not gender. Responsible parents do not allow their young daughters to be placed in potential danger and adult females think likewise.

    That's retarded. Bathrooms are not heavily guarded places, so any potential rapists could just enter them if they wanted. Allowing transgender people into bathrooms designed for the sex they were not born as would not increase the chances of people being raped at all. If you think it would, then you're just an irrational moron.

    i don't think people are worried about actual trannies raping kids. they're more worried about their kids being exposed to the tranny itself and/or it's wang. parents don't want their small kids exposed to certain things until they are older. period. also, tranny imposters who are child sex offenders are a conceivable threat.

      Well, too bad. I don't think society should accommodate snowflakes at all, whether they are of the left-wing or right-wing variety. I don't care if someone's crotch fruit witnesses something that they are offended by.

        We don't, that's why you're being put in your place here.

          You are a snowflake, though. Just a different type of snowflake from SJWs.

    Wrong! [metro.co.uk] It's not bathrooms but "facilities", including female changing rooms at the municipal pool. Insult people all you like, the majority will not support men in female facilities.

      Wrong about what? Why would that even matter that it's not just about bathrooms, since that doesn't change the point? Maybe changing rooms should be better designed in the first place, so that they actually provide privacy.

      I don't care that snowflakes might be offended that someone they don't approve of might enter their safe spaces. Period. Ultimately, the idea that this will somehow increase rape rates is just ridiculous, regardless of what you think the bathroom rules should be.

        You clearly are offended.

        Not safe spaces, private spaces.

        Exactly because females are not sharing private female facilities with biological males. Great we got there in the end.

          You'd be wrong. I just think you're incorrect, hypocritical, and logically inconsistent.

          You wouldn't accept this weak argument if an SJW said it, but don't let that stop you.

          There's nothing stopping a biological male who wants to rape from entering a female bathroom/changing room, regardless of what rules are in place. Bathrooms/changing rooms are not heavily guarded areas and it would be trivial for anyone to enter them. We already know that rapists are more than willing to break the law, so you're just a moron for saying this.

            The right to privacy is recognised in the UN Declaration of Human Rights but don't let your false equivalence stop you.

            You're seriously claiming that opportunistic acts of violence are not prevented by removing the opportunity? Your reasoning is both fallacious and dangerous.
