GUEST,albert Did George Galloway Get A Fair Hearing (218* d) RE: Did George Galloway Get A Fair Hearing 27 Jul 07


Yes I am happy and proud to be a member of Respect.
Shakey you sound like someone who has read far too much of the right wing press for your own good.Dont believe all you have read in those squalid rags or indeed the stuff written by people like Nick Cohen and other pro war erstwhile leftwingers who have now been left stranded on the wilder shores of neoconservatism.

There are some in this country who believe that all muslims are terrorists or potential terrorists.What a horrible and scandalous piece of Islamophobia .And believe it or not those you call the "clerical fascists "[a dangerous bit of terminology in itself because there are real fascists out there ] do not support Respect ;indeed Galloway has been assaulted by jihadi supporters.
You have trailed another red herring in inferring that Respect does not support Gay Rights.Of course we do!

As for equating Respect with the BNP...here you have really let your rabid hatred obscure any judgement you have.

The BNP stand for race hatred,the smashing of working class organisations and the most reactionary forms of right wing politics.
Respect members are totally opposed to these new nazis.Indeed a load of Respect members,along with others were leafletting against a BNP council candidate in Swansea only last week.I was there with my comrades so I dont take kindly to being likened to a fascist by you.
Respect was formed because Labour has moved to become the most right wing social democratic party in Europe.Indeed, it has embraced the free market and neo conservatism with a fervour I would have thought impossible 15 years ago.
Labour is the party of war and has also led an attack on public services. Respect was formed three years ago to counter this gallop to the right.
Respect stands for

Respect
Equality
Socialism
Peace
Environmentalism
Community
Trade unionism

It is part of the world wide anti war movement which opposed the invasion of Iraq and the attack last year on the Lebanon.
Plenty to do then!!
Albert
