MP for Bradford West, George Galloway, has caused outrage online after relentlessly trying to discredit the women who have accused Julian Assange of sex crimes against them.

gallowayIn Galloway’s video podcast ‘Good night with George Galloway’, the MP said:

 “Not everybody needs to be asked prior to each insertion.

Some people believe that when you go to bed with somebody, take off your clothes, and have sex with them and then fall asleep, you’re already in the sex game with them.

It might be really bad manners not to have tapped her on the shoulder and said, “do you mind if I do it again?”. It might be really sordid and bad sexual etiquette, but whatever else it is, it is not rape or you bankrupt the term rape of all meaning. .

I don’t believe either of those women, I don’t believe either of these stories.

Galloway took to Twitter to defend his comments and further promote the views of Assange’s apologists. He retweeted an article that attacks and names the two women involved, accusing their claims of being politically motived.

Here’s a quote from the sickening article:

Julian Assange hurt her feelings, she was angry about it and decided to take revenge on him. The main problem now is that she would never withdraw little lie, because she is responsible now for a huge thing and the whole world would hate her if she confesses.

She puts herself in a pretty bad position, even if she regrets her lie by now. In order to protect herself, she would never ever admit that she lied.

The bottom line: Don’t sleep with feminists, and if you are drunk and do it anyway… Don’t sleep with her feminist girlfriend and hurt her. These girls think they are smart and know how to use Google to find funny stuff about Revenge. Another bad thing: They know feminist state attorneys.

The Julian Assange case has triggered some truly horrific opinions towards rape cases and highlights how society’s attitudes to rape victims has contributed to poor conviction rates. I can only imagine how the constituents of Bradford West feel about their MP publicly supporting these unreasonable, insensitive views.

Left Foot Forward previously reported on the lowly ways that Galloway ran his election campaign earlier this year:

The way in which Galloway conducted his deeply divisive campaign should leave him with nothing to be proud about. But as I said yesterday he doesn’t care about you, or me or Bradford, or Glasgow or Bethnal Green, or Joe Public, or the man-in-the-street. Galloway is a one-man brand, and one who appeals to low politics and dirty tricks – what a pity that we have to see him in parliament (occasionally) again.

The evidence of George Galloway’s ridiculousness suggests that no one would take him seriously, but sadly his 87,000 Twitter followers and the majority vote he received in the recent Bradford West by-election suggests that some may do just that.

    we’d all agree rape is terrible but I have a bit of sympathy for Galloway and Ken Clarke when he made his comments. They may have been clumsy in their choice of words but they were really just pointing out there is a difference between the scenario Galloway described and for instance dragging some complete stranger down a dark alley at knife point. Both are wrong but in my view one is more serious than the other. Getting all angry over these comments does risk dimishing the impact of the term rape

    Rubbish all rape is just as serious, no matter how or when it’s done.

  3. penfold

    a 16 year old boy having consensual sex with his 15 year old girlfriend is just as serious is it? it is technically rape after all.

    The problem is that they are lying, however idiotically Galloway puts it they are lying.
    It’s obvious he will be extradited to the US as soon as he gets to Sweden and the chances of him getting a fair trail there are zero.

    Quite right. Galloway defends Assange because, at base, they are rather similar. I have posted a few thoughts on this over at Labour Uncut:
