Galloway: Killing Tony Blair “Justified”

My favorite leftist is back from his relatively long stint of not saying or doing something absolutely absurd. George Galloway, made famous by coming to Washington to face a senate committee investigating the Oil for Food Scandal, said today, when asked, that the assassination of Prime Minister Tony Blair would be morally justified. (Independent) "Yes, [the murder of Blair] would be morally justified. I am not calling for it - but if it happened it would be of a wholly different moral order to the events of 7/7. It would be entirely logical and explicable. And morally equivalent to ordering the deaths of thousands of innocent people in Iraq - as Blair did."

So where do I begin? First, I’ll start with a little background on the man who became a rock star among the fringe-left by praising terrorism and attacking the United States. This is a guy who described the suicide bombers in Iraq as Martyrs. He also denounced those Iraqis who join their country’s security forces as “collaborators”. Galloway then claimed the insurgents are the “defenders” of not only that country but the entire Arab people. "Therefore it can be said that the Iraqi resistance is not just defending Iraq. They are defending all the Arabs and they are defending all the people of the world from American hegemony." -

Mr. Galloway also took bribes from Saddam Hussein and was caught lying by the United States Senate when he testified in front of the commission investigating the “Oil for Food Scandal”. (
Guardian) "Galloway personally solicited and was granted oil allocations from the government of Iraq during the reign of Saddam Hussein."Galloway's wife, Dr Amineh Abu-Zayyad, received approximately $150,000 in connection with one of those oil allocations." Galloway's political campaign, the Mariam Appeal, received at least $446,000 in connection with the oil allocations granted to Galloway…”

And I can’t forget to mention this utterly hilarious video of the British MP. If you haven’t seen this…It's a must see.

OK, now that we have some background, I’ll address his latest madness. I am, by no means, surprised at this type of twisted logic. I’m not surprised because I have been reporting on Galloway for a year, going back to my first blog site. When he said that killing Tony Blair is equivalent to him ordering the deaths of thousands of innocent people in Iraq, one has to wonder, how on earth he came to that conclusion. Did I miss something? When did the Prime Minister or President Bush order the deaths of innocent people in Iraq? Obviously it’s a complete lie but that’s not to say it’s not an applauded lie. By that I mean there are enough people in Europe and unfortunately America that have no use for the truth and in fact revel in hearing statements such as the one above. To them the truth is like a contagion they will stop at nothing to avoid. The truth, to which they are in denial, prevents them from being who they truly are.

People such as George Galloway, including many of the liberal internet-folk, would undoubtedly cheer a suicide-bomb attempt on the prime minister. They would also joyously celebrate an assassination attempt on President Bush. And if he were murdered they would mark that day, in all of their hatred and ignorance, as the greatest liberal holiday in history. So when people describe the Galloway remark as "shocking", as Drudge did in his headline, it is an underestimation of the depths of some people's hatred.
