Video of British Parliment Member George Galloway cheerleading for the defeat of Western Civilization. [Transcript]

"[The Americans] can control the skies, but only if they don't come within range of an RPG, but they can't control one single street in any part of occupied Iraq. Not one street!..." [Applause] "These poor Iraqis - ragged people, with their sandals, with their Kalashnikovs... are winning the war. America is losing the war in Iraq, and even the Americans now admit it. Even the puppet ministers and regime in Baghdad know it[...]" "It's not the Muslims who are the terrorists. The biggest terrorists are Bush, and Blair, and Berlusconi, and Aznar, but it is definitely not a clash of civilizations. George Bush doesn't have any civilization, he doesn't represent any civilization."

The libertarian in me (and keep in mind that I used to be a hard-core, quasi-anarchist libertarian of the Heinlein variety, "an armed society is a polite society" and it still influences me today as a partisan Republican) hates, hates, hates writing these words:

Free speech should have limits. This video qualifies as incitement of violence against his fellow countrymen and as such should carry criminal consequences.

Galloway should just go ahead and physically defect to the enemy, or, if he wants to continue living here, he should be held accountable for his actions. And I don't mean a slap on the wrist. As a free citizen of the same country where Salmon Rushdie lives in exile with a death decree upon his head, Galloway has sided against us with the same culture that issued that decree, safe in the knowledge that he will be, at worst, another Jane Fonda. Rich, famous, and free to speak his mind. I'm disgusted beyond words.
