While politics is, by its nature, polarizing. There are a number of policies and topics you could name and they’d immediately conjure strong, passionate feelings from nearly everyone in the vicinity.
Likewise, there are several people who evoke similar feelings. President Donald Trump is certainly someone that comes to mind, as an example. While Trump is polarizing, Edward Snowden and Julian Assange also fit this description.
Simply saying those two names – Snowden and Assange- people either believe they are traitors or patriots. There is now middle ground when it comes to those to people.
Rep. Tulsi Gabbard has introduced legislation to change the law when it comes to whistleblowers and has called for all charges against Snowden and Assange to be dropped.
