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.

    You’ve got nothing and you know it.

  2. Newsbot9

    Keep up the rape apologia. There is a very large percentage of the population who agree with me, including many of the people who bailed him here.

  3. TomSparc

    Grow up and reply honestly. Or admit what is obvious – you don’t have a clue.

    Why do you choose ignorance and lies over knowledge?

  5. Newsbot9

    You think that over 99% of climatologists are!

  6. Newsbot9

    A typically jingoistic response from someone who’s simply on a personal jihad against me

  7. TomSparc

    Your simple-minded and ignorant worldview is not impressive.

  8. TomSparc

    Now you reveal persecution complex as well as your dishonesty and racism.

  9. Newsbot9

    You’re posting from conspiracy blogs, just like on other issues.

  10. TomSparc

    So why are you a climate science denier?

  11. TomSparc

    You talk like a denier.

  12. Newsbot9

    It’s called the rule of law.

  13. Newsbot9

    Yes, I deny your conspiracy theories.

  14. Newsbot9

    Why do you feel that 1% are right?

  15. TomSparc

    You have no response to the facts so you lie.

  16. Newsbot9

    That’s downright funny.

  17. TomSparc

    Which one?

  18. TomSparc

    Why do you lie? Why do you ignore all facts that expose your ignorance?

  19. TomSparc

    For a bigot like you, I guess.

  20. Newsbot9

    You keep believing.

  21. TomSparc

    Some of us choose facts and science. You stick with your bigoted “beliefs”.

  22. Newsbot9

    Like all good little totalitarians, you’re spamming and trying to deny anyone else has a valid pov.

    So, go back to Stormfront.

    Done with you in this comments thread.

  23. TomSparc

    This case has brought out little fascists like you who have no interest in the facts and nuance of the case.

    You just want Assange to rot in some American military cell for the rest of his days because he threatens the fascist western plutocracy that you are brainwashed by.

    P.S. I’ll bet you can’t resist replying because you are spineless in many ways.

  24. Newsbot9

    Frankly, if you supported wikileaks, why are you supporting Mr. Assange, who’s overshadowed their ongoing releases?

  25. gfer

    galloway probably supports rape because he’s been hanging around with Pakistanis for too long. rape is endemic in that culture. it is normal for a man who has commited an offence to be sentenced to his wife being gang-raped as punishment.

    you lie down with dogs, you get fleas

  26. Joshua Dougherty

    I think Galloway was entirely correct. There’s no precedent for rape charges of this nature, and we should hope there never is.

  27. Selohesra

    Posting as ‘Guest’ are we Botty – I’d recognise your stle of reasoned debate anywhere 🙂

    I deleted my posts because I don’t want to be associated with his machine spam.
