It’s no secret that I am done with the fake dissident George Galloway but today he sank to an all-time new low in his ham-handed and rather revealing defense of NSA/State Department psyop Julian Assange when he claimed that penetrating a sleeping woman without protection and then continuing in spite of her objections isn’t really rape.
I find it remarkable that such progressive and human rights focused journalists like Glenn Greenwald and others constantly gloss over the charges against Julian Assange as if they never happened. That’s bad enough. Kinda like the supporters of the Bush regime still trying to argue Saddam had weapons of mass destruction.
But George Galloway takes it one step further… he demeans the complaints against Assange on the grounds that they did happen and it doesn’t really matter that they did. That it’s not really legitimate rape.
One guy is damn near done in politics because he uses the term “legitimate rape” in public and another goes so far as to actually define it. Let’s see where the “progressive” Assange worshiping left takes this newest development. (my prediction? no where)
The allegations are that Julian, while he was running around enjoying his life as an international playboy “activist”, had consensual sex with a young woman who insisted on using a condom after a night of partying.
She falls asleep afterward and Julian decides to penetrate her again, while she was asleep, without a condom. She wakes up and he continues in spite of her objections.
That’s… fucking… rape… and I don’t care how much you just love the psyop Assange and think the Guardian’s and the Times’ “leaks” helped expose Iran as the biggest threat to the Middle East (look it up), the fact is, she was asleep, she trusted him, shared intercourse with him, the most personal and intimate thing you can share with someone, and he date raped her without protection while she slept.
To me he’s slime. But not apparently to George Galloway (who by the way is friends with the oligarchs in England who put him up in their mansion for a year)
“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,” Galloway said, gesticulating emphatically. “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.” George Galloway
What do you say to that? I wonder how far the crackpot Galloway takes this “sex game” theory of his? I wonder, if you are already “in the sex game” if that means you can snatch up your sleeping partner and chain her to a beam in your basement for a month and repeatedly forcibly sodomize her anally and hook up car batteries to her nipples? Is that rape or simply “bad sexual etiquette” you stupid son of a bitch?
I wonder how Galloway’s take on this might change if Assange did this “bad sexual etiquette” to a daughter of his.
With all this talk of “legitimate rape” and the squealing for accountability coming from the left (and rightly so, mind you), I wonder how this will play out. I wonder if the left is willing to take a step back and look at the consequences of their actions defending the wholly indefensible actions of Julian Assange simply because he’s a blond playboy wrongly credited with being some kind of anti-imperialist crusader. They have to understand it is their dual standards in such cases that makes people like Galloway think he can get away with making such offensive and damaging statements.
Any women out there want to talk about waking up and finding some guy penetrating you while you were asleep without protection? Does it matter? Is it simply bad sexual etiquette or is it rape?
Now here’s the question: is it still rape when Julian does it, or does it not matter because he’s so damn cool … and it happened to someone else?
Are you going to condemn one politician because he used the term “legitimate rape” or the weasel pundit from England who actually tries to define it?
You decide the world you want to live in. I’ll just record the descent as it happens.
