Patterico's Pontifications


Galloway: A Blair Assassination Would Be “Morally Justified”

Filed under: Humor,Scum — Patterico @ 6:52 am

Understand clearly: I am not calling for “Gorgeous George” Galloway to be tied to a wooden stake while crazed weasels gnaw at his private parts, and Christopher Hitchens reads him pro-war Jonah Goldberg columns and T.S. Eliot poetry in a drunken Irish brogue.

I am not calling for this. But it would be morally justified.

  1. When I look around at all the outrages being perpetrated nowadays, and there’s no sense listing them, you all know what they are, I can’t help believing that there’s some kind of mass psychosis afflicting a large portion of society. There’s certainly no logical explanation for it. And that doesn’t even take into account the institutional psychosis of islam.

    I have to work hard every day to avoid getting completely depressed about the current state of affairs in this country and the West in general.

  2. It’s almost heartbreaking to think that this clown received such a effusive welcome from the radical left when he visited the U.S. this past fall. Aren’t we all still waiting for his slander and libel suits against all those commentators who accused him of receiving oil vouchers in the food-for-oil program?

  3. George Galloway Has Lost It

    When I first read the headline, I assumed they were taking liberties with some of his words to perhaps twist them a bit. I was wrong:The Respect MP George Galloway has said it would be morally justified for a suicide

  4. This is the first time he said anything that backed the Iraq war. If he considers it ok to kill Tony Blair cause he caused less deaths than Sadaam, then it was OK for us to get Sadaam.

  5. I dunno, JVW, I’m not heartbroken about it at all. Tony Blair might not wholeheartedly endorse my view, but if Galloway didn’t exist, we might have to invent him. As tempting as it is to suggest that he receive his own prescription, it’s much better not to disturb the gift that keeps on giving. Ditto Cindy Sheahan, Howard Dean and so on . . . .

  6. Morally justified and a darn fine way to pass a spring evening!

    Now, where can I find a nice rack ‘o crazed weasels…?

    Yeah, yeah. “Congress”. Too predictable.

  7. Remember the guy a few months ago who was an honest enough liberal to tell us that no, he didn’t support the troops?

    Well, I’d compliment Mr Galloway on his honesty: he said exactly what he thought, and he didn’t try to soft-peddle it. If what he thinks makes him scum, at least he is less scummy than all of those people out there who think the same thing but are not honest enough to admit it.

  8. Well, I guess the thing that I find maddening is not so much that a guy like Galloway exists, it is that he manages to get himself elected to a legislative body in a Western democracy, and he finds a receptive audience when he travels to other Western democracies. Cindy Sheehan is a (mostly) harmless twit, and Howard Dean probably could not longer get himself elected to anything more moderate than the Berkeley City Council, but Galloway actually sits in the same hall where once sat Burke, Gladstone, Disraeli, Churchill, and Thatcher.

  9. What’s the big deal? Galloway’s a skanky scummy hole. Who couldn’t earn fiddy cents on ees knees, in a Turkish prison. I was always told to have pity on the less fortunate. No matter their grievous nature. Though I’m not superstitious, much, I will allow for the possibility of kharma (Galloway’ll be on his own come payment due).

  10. I’m tempted to say that George Galloway is a good political whore; when he’s bought and paid for (and Saddam bought him) he keeps on message even after the paymaster is gone.

    He was an MP from somewhere up north–in Scotland I think when he got thrown out of Parliament for one scam or another. He came back as an MP for a new party from a largely poor and Muslim district in London. His latest stunt before this was spending three weeks on a reality TV show, at one point simulating sex of a sort with Ruta Lenska for the cameras. I mean the man’s a basket case–brash and bold enough to face down the self described “greatest debating society in the world” aka the “House of Winds” aka the United States Senate–but dumb enough to make statements like this, and to be currently cavorting with Castro in Cuba.

    I’ll not go down the Kharma road with Elmo above (although Gorgeous Georgie definitely generates some BAAAD Kharma). I’d rather think of a line from an old shape note hymn, “A Beautiful Life” where the singer nears the end of life and “goes to meet the deeds I’ve done.” I suspect that meeting will result in a pretty hot time for Galloway.

  12. George Galloway and the Prime Minister

    George Galloway really does have a talent for the outrageous statement, doesn’t he? George Galloway was facing calls for his expulsion from Parliament and a police inquiry yesterday following an interview in which he said the assassination of Tony Blair

    Which tells you something about the decline in quality of that august body.

    Please remember, the British voters who elected Mr Galloway today are the heirs of those who voted to replace Winston Churchill with that giant of his times, Clement Atlee, before World War II was over.

  14. […] Patterico dismissed Mr Galloway’s remarks as one would dismiss those of any idiot. Sister Toldjah basically did the same: Would someone please explain to me again why anyone in Britain would elect this serial idiot to represent them in the first place? Is this not something he can be censured for in front of the Parliament at the very least? I don’t know the way things work in the British gov’t, but there’s got t be a way there for the Parliament to condemn this bonehead. […]
