As #GeorgeGalloway declares his support for Nigel Farage and his Brexit Party some on the Left have expressed surprise that he would back the posh far Right rabble rouser. The surprise is that ANYONE on the Left still backs #Galloway. a thread
In January 1994 Mr Galloway stood before Saddam Hussein and said: "Your excellency, Mr President .. Sir, I salute your courage, your strength your indefatigability. And I want you to know that we are with you until victory, until victory, until Jerusalem." theguardian.com/politics/2005/…
This was 3 years after Saddam had brutally crushed Shia and Kurd uprisings murdering 10s of 1000s. It was only 6 years since Saddams brutal Anfal campaign against the Kurds killed 10s of 1000s in northern Iraq inc the horrific Halabja chemical attack en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Halabja_c…
in 1999 he told Saddams son Uday "I'd like you to know that we are with you 'til the end." Uday was nicknamed "the Wolf" for his cruelty, killed thousands of people and even tortured Iraqi footballers and athletes who failed to meet his expectations. web.archive.org/web/2007042322…
Galloway was rightly vocal opposing the Iraq War but when he stood on an anti-war ticket in the 2005 election in Bethnal Green he was only elected due to support from the far Right linked Islamic Forum for Europe telegraph.co.uk/news/politics/…
and indeed as that article showed he again played the communalist card in a vile way. the section of the Bradford community he used to get elected in 2012 was the same one that had mobilised riots against the Ahmadi community in Bradford in 1985 compas.ox.ac.uk/wp-content/upl…
in 2012 he also made disgusting comments about rape inc " I mean, not everybody needs to be asked prior to each insertion.” when defending Julian Assange from allegations of rape/assualt thedailybeast.com/the-most-insan…
in the 2015 General Election, Galloway carried out a disgusting misogynist campaign against his Labour opponent Naz Shah including trying to smear her by saying she was lying that she had been in a violent forced marriage. He lost the election. theguardian.com/politics/2015/…
Galloway has a rep as a election winner, but people soon see through him. In Bradford in 2015 Naz Shah hammered him, in the London Mayoral election in 2015 he got 1.5% of the vote, in 2017 he got 5.7% of the vote in the safe Labour seat of Longsight. independent.co.uk/news/uk/politi…
and there is so so much more. With his fascination and support for strongmen including Putin who he not only praised regularly but has been the payroll of via RT the home of also Nigel Farage this all come full circle. #Farage #Galloway, #RedBrown in full effect. No more excuses
