This blog initially set out to focus primarily on Islam and the Islamisation of the UK. However, since that time the subjects covered have broadened. They now include (amongst other things): IQ tests, Jean Baudrillard, global warming, sociobiology, Marxism, Trotskyism, David Cameron, Foucault, Nazism, Ralph Miliband, economics, statistics and so on. - Paul Austin Murphy
I've had articles published in The Conservative Online, American Thinker, Intellectual Conservative, Human Events, Faith Freedom, Brenner Brief (Broadside News), New English Review, etc... (Paul Austin Murphy's Philosophy can be found here.)

Galloway benefits from democracy yet he champions totalitarians [E]



- By George Grant (edited by PM)
 
Congratulations to Gorgeous George Galloway.... For Mr Galloway was clear in his rationale. His victory, he said, was a rejection of the mainstream political establishment’s failure to “atone for their role in the invasion and occupation of other peoples’ countries, and the drowning of those countries in blood”. If the sheer, craven hypocrisy of it all hasn’t already got you reaching for the sick-bucket, let me spell it out.

This is a man who has built his entire career on the crude but simple philosophy that “my enemy’s enemy is my friend”. His enemy, like so many on the far Left, is of course his own government. It is this philosophy that enables Galloway, not a religious man by all accounts, to associate himself with Islamists who call for the execution of homosexuals, the total subjugation of women, and the extermination of an entire race [the Jews].

It was this philosophy that led him to stand before Saddam Hussein in 1994 and utter those infamous words:“Sir I salute your courage, your strength, your indefatigability, and I want you to know that we are with you, hatta al-nasr, hatta al-nasr, hatta al-Quds [until victory, until Jerusalem].”

And it is this philosophy that led him to oppose so vociferously not just the invasion of Iraq in 2003, but also the 2001 intervention in Afghanistan after 9/11, and of course last year’s intervention in Libya.

No matter that it is the Taliban who are now responsible for fully four-fifths of civilian deaths in Afghanistan, according to the United Nations. It is Nato, according to Mr Galloway, that bears true responsibility. No matter that those same insurgents are guilty of throwing acid in the faces of girls who go to school, and stringing up children suspected of ‘spying’ for the government. Afghans have a legitimate right, says Mr Galloway, to resist foreign occupation and determine their own future...
