Galloway Goes National Populist: Trump, “. I don’t care what they do in their own country, just as long as they don’t plunge us into more wars.”
“Beat the Establishment’s favourite” says George Galloway.
Our old friend George Galloway, an accredited soothsayer, has some musings on the Trump victory.
I first predicted a Trump win in a tweet on May 11 (note: George Galloway: Trump is better than Clinton. 6.7.16) and again at just after midnight on Wednesday morning when the media know-alls were still ushering-in Clinton. I knew because I can sense the wave of detestation of the political class across countries and borders. And it has happened particularly since the Iraq War. Sometimes that results in a move to the left and sometimes to the right, like with Trump and with Le Pen in France.
He is a big vulgar oaf, a locker room jock. But we knew that. And it is saying something he beat the Establishment’s favourite, the one with all the money behind her. Trump spent more on souvenirs, t-shirts and giveaways than he did on pollsters and focus groups. Who called that one right?
The elite – and Clinton represent that elite – have constructed a supra-national paradigm in which the losers, the ordinary people have no say. People want to live in a national economy. They don’t want globalisation which cannot be affected and they cannot, by definition, influence.
I’ve said it since Tuesday. I don’t care what they do in their own country, just as long as they don’t plunge us into more wars. If they want to build a wall that’s up to them. If they want to throw out illegal immigrants or keep out Muslims that’s up to them. It’s their business.
The idea that a legal immigrant loves an illegal immigrant is demonstrably false. They don’t. I know from my own experience in Bradford that just isn’t true.
Yes, how true, how very true, he has experience in Bradford.
Galloway rapidly loses all sense of reality…
…here’s a big lesson here for the First Minister and other politicians not to get involved in other people’s elections. Wee Nicola won’t be celebrating St Andrew’s Day in the White House any more. And as for Kezia…the curse of Scottish New Labour strikes again! She abandons NHS Day here which had been three months in the planning to fly to New York to lick stamps for Hillary. Well if she didn’t ken then she does noo!
But not of poetry:
It’s reminds me of what Mary Brooksbank, the Dundee Bard, said in her Jute Mill Song
Oh dear me, the world’s ill-divided
Them that work the hardest are aye wi least provided
There is worse, as Shiraz notes, Galloway and his remaining mates have this letter in the Morning Star (Galloway and fellow Red-Brown scum welcome Trump victory)
“The defeat of the Clintons by a purported opponent of neoliberal economic policy and of neoconservative foreign policy, although time will tell, has secured the position of Jeremy Corbyn, who is undoubtedly such an opponent.”
