George Galloway dust-up

Read this CT post, where some liberals get irate at GG for some recent remarks. Most of the comments are worth reading. I have nothing more to add.


I found this link  in the comments, a story about an American deserter. After reading the NYT piece linked earlier on this blog about the Americans who gleefully kneed a rural Afghan prisoner to death because they thought it was funny that he called out for God when they attacked him, I thought I was through having my stomach turned by war stories.

But that link literally made me feel queasy. If they turned that guy's story into a movie, nobody would let it be rated NC-17, it would be XXX, and not for sex. That stuff brings horrifying to new levels. I'm really disturbed--and even more disturbed that I know I have to get over it.

And then they get mad at George Galloway for figuratively comparing imperialism to rape. Get mad at the fucking rapists first.

Dsquared subsequently had a partial change of heart. When he found out about Bliar's new crackpot laws, he wrote this comment  on Lenin's Tomb, a pro-Galloway blog.

Loony and wingnutty as it sounds, I think the biggest problem with liberals is a lack of moral clarity. Like Dan said, how can they possibly get mad at Galloway. This urge to always have a sensible position leaves them making false equivalences.
