Galloway on the BBC

George Galloway has just been on the BBC’s Daily Politics with Peter Hitchens. Here’s the Gorgeous One:
I’m not entitled to hate English people just because I hate Peter.
And here's what he said during his debate with Hitchens’ brother Christopher last year:
When the Irish people rose in 1916 for their freedom to strike one of the first decisive blows against the British empire, on which the sun never sets, because God would never trust the English in the dark...
Back to the Daily Politics - Galloway again:
You shouldn’t write things which encourage others to hate a group of people because that kind of bigotry leads to a tearing apart of an already fragile social fabric. I’m sorry I’m not a liberal. I believe in order in society. I believe in rules.
Here’s a transcript from a Galloway speech that Harry’s Place spotted on MPACUK last year:
We must let the Government know that if anymore of our cities, Damascus, Iran or anywhere alse is attacked, we will not only protest in Parliament but we will Riot on the streets of Britain.
Every single Terrorism legislation has been aimed at the Muslim community and I tell you this Mr Blair, you can criminalise who you want, but I will carry on supporting the Intifadha in palestine, the Intifadha in Iraq and all the other Intifadhas.
[sic]
Galloway on the Daily Politics:
Four legs good, two legs better!
Galloway last year:
Four legs good, two legs bad.
OK I made the last two up, but you get the idea.

Bless him. There is nary an ounce of "bigotry" in that well-proportioned, bronzed body of his, is there?

he's a liar as well when it comes to Irish history. The 1916 revolution was made up of people like Peter Hitchens (right wing, idealists, free marketeers, but nationalist) right the way across the spectrum to the Marxists of James Connolly.

There was no Irish revolutionary like Galloway - because none of them sold out their country.

In fact the Galloway crowd were the ones in Dublin Castle, in the police force, working with the British forces. Selling out to forces outside of their country.

His tarring of the memory of the 1916 revolutionaries is repugnant and sickening.

If anything, its Peter Hitchens who comes very close to the 1916 revolutionaries - particularly Padraig Pearse , Michael Collins and De Valera - all to the right, but firmly nationalist and utter believers in their own country and the independence of their country.
