George Galloway Watch - Part 2,358

Oh look, more fun.

If this was a few decades ago we'd have strapped this grinning, malevolent son of a bitch to a chair in a courtyard and shot him. I make no value judgement in pointing this out.

The philosophers over at Crooked Timber are beginning to have second thoughts
:

To be honest, listening to these orations, my reaction was that this is on the absolute cusp of being the sort of thing that a decent, liberal society ought to be chucking people in jail for.


Well.... duh. But everyone was happy to share a platform with him when it suited them weren't they? "Chatshow" Charlie Kennedy and all. And to give him a platform to rant and pontificate. It's not like it was impossible to see this coming back in the day, but I remember when I and others who pointed out just what sort of a person Gorgeous George is were dismissed as warmongers or told that there was a broader "cause" that was more important than any dodgy affiliations that Galloway and his chums may have. It's not rocket science that the man is a shit of the very first water, it's just that a large number of people chose to ignore the fact until after the Stop the War Coalition was faltering and he'd safely ousted Oona King - shame on them.

Very droll, but there is an implicit value judgement there all the same. Not that I wouldn't concur.
