George 🖤 Joseph Vissarionovich

The Twitter account of George Galloway (remember him?) now features as its heading a photo of one of the three worst mass murderers of the 20th century. The one who enabled the other two.

No surprise, of course. Galloway strongly implied his affection for Stalin in a 2002 interview with The Guardian:
“I am on the anti-imperialist [...]

George Galloway to stand in Gorton

My first reaction was to think this was quite an amusing parody. Galloway declares:
The “All-Asian short-list” hand-picked by Keith Vaz is just not good enough for the people of Gorton one of the most deprived constituencies in Britain.
I (initially) found this a droll detail:
I want to continue [Kaufman's] work on international issues – which are [...]


Btw @SusanSarandon is right. Hillary Clinton is even more dangerous for America and the world than is Donald Trump
— George Galloway (@georgegalloway) June 7, 2016

Me neither.
After all Donald Trump is an isolationist and in many ways a classic Stopper. He has a weakness for dictatorial strongmen and doesn’t really care about human rights in other [...]

Is this the end of Rico George?

(Disclaimer: The above reference is strictly metaphorical.)
We and others have predicted it many times in the past, and he always managed to confound us. But with his leftwing and Muslim “friends” abandoning him, and his campaign for London mayor heading for oblivion, Nick Cohen writes that the moment has finally arrived.
For years, Galloway was treated [...]

Galloway’s antisemitism goes full frontal

I can’t help thinking there is a connection between George Galloway polling at less than one percent in the race for London mayor and drawing crowds like this to his campaign events…

How the self-important gasbags have fallen

George Galloway polling less than 1% for London mayor. What a great city this is.

IS sadist was Viva Palestina volunteer

A Washington Post report suggests that vetting of volunteers for George Galloway’s Viva Palestina convoys to Gaza could have been more thorough. (Oh, wait– there wasn’t any vetting.):
A member of a British cohort within the Islamic State that oversaw the brutal detention and beheading of Western hostages in Syria has been identified as Alexanda Kotey, [...]

Syria Solidarity reject Stopper anti-airstrike demo

As the Stoppers again take to the streets (this time to oppose British airstrikes against the Islamic State in Syria), Syria Solidarity UK explain why they are not supporting the demonstration.

We oppose the British government’s proposal to merely mimic the American ISIS-only counter-terrorism war; not only do we believe it is immoral to fly missions [...]

Say what?

I will prosecute every attack on @jeremycorbyn made by Sadiq Khan in the press today over the next 7 months. Treason will not go unpunished.
— George Galloway (@georgegalloway) September 20, 2015

Apparently this relates to Khan, Labour’s candidate for mayor of London, saying pretty much what we’ve been saying at Harry’s Place about Jeremy Corbyn, John [...]

Galloway’s dancing partner dies

Tariq Aziz, Iraq’s former foreign minister and deputy prime minister, who loyally provided an urbane facade to Saddam Hussein’s unspeakably brutal regime, has died in hospital at the age of 79.
George Galloway once wrote of his experience on “the crowded dance floor of a North African nightclub … dancing with Tariq Aziz, the deputy prime [...]
