Hmmm... not debating with Israelis isn't racist. Bigoted, maybe.
Normally, I'd agree. However, if you've turned up to a debate, it's a bit different.Not necessarily. Some people are so obviously fixed in their views that it would be a waste of time to debate anything with them - think Muslim Clerics, Creationists and anti-nuclear power tree huggers. And I say that not as someone who is fixed in all their views (although i am very much a fixed atheist).
My thoughts exactly, the supercilious self serving smug bastard.....Galloway doesn't debate. He is always on permanent send and never listens to other points of view. It is all about him and so was this walk out. Articulate, yes, but one of the smuggest narcissists on the planet. Personally can't stand him.
George Galloway is himself a Muslim convert (or revert, as the Mohammedans laughably refer to converts.)There are plenty of Muslim politicians around who could very happily do his job in Parliament if he was deselected for any reason and they and their supporters will be looking for any excuse to oust him.
agreed.George was "elected" in an area quite well known for high levels of racism against anyone who is no Muslim and for vast amounts of voter fraud from these same ethnic groups. He is simply protecting his nest egg knowing full well if he acts like this then the mindless bigots that have 30 people living in them coming election day will continue to put a tick by his name.
If anybody doubts the racism point feel free to spend some time in areas of Bradford.
That's an excellent summary. I've never heard or seen the fellow, but read some of his leaden manifesto, and the occasional bored moment has been filled with u-tube video of him. Although he tried it with Christopher Hitchens, and failed, he never argues a point, but does the Provisional SF thing of wholly ignoring it while shouting another. I suppose it's a political operator's PR style like all the others - New Labour balls of grease did it quite well, too - but it's a cop-out as it never addresses the point being debated. In the old Leninist way of appealing to a won constituency, he strokes and licks the prejudices of his own audience, but never touches those of the opposition.Galloway doesn't debate. He is always on permanent send and never listens to other points of view. It is all about him and so was this walk out. Articulate, yes, but one of the smuggest narcissists on the planet. Personally can't stand him.
