John Wight goes imperialist?

Exclusive on Russia Today John Wight backed US air-strikes on the Islamic fascists in Iraq.

This is entirely welcome comrade!

Yes this is the same John Wight, more widely known for insane rants like this one,


The Guardian newspaper has published an ad by supporters of the apartheid State of Israel, which among other things smears the Palestinian resistance as ‘child killers’. Given that Israel’s latest massacre of Palestinians in Gaza has up to now involved the slaughter of 400 children, this is beyond parody. The right wing Times refused to carry the ad, while the supposedly progressive Guardian published it.

  3. I’m no fan of John Wight, but what makes the comment that you quote an ‘insane rant’?

  4. @pinkie – although I dislike his tone and rhetoric (and in fact just about every other thing about him) I was inclined to think the Times’s decision was a good one (i.e. not to take the Wiesel ad).
