Capitalism the "Biggest Killer" of All

George Galloway, terrorist apologist and all-around darling of the anti-war left, appeared on Al Jazeera recently and left this nugget behind, via The Counterterrorism blog.

"Bush, and Blair, and the prime minister of Japan, and Berlusconi, these people are criminals, and they are responsible for mass murder in the world, for the war, and for the occupation, through their support for Israel, and through their support for a globalized capitalist economic system, which is the biggest killer the world has ever known. It has killed far more people than Adolph Hitler. It has killed far more people than George Bush. The economic system which these people support, which leaves most of the people in the world hungry, and without clean water to drink...Ancient freedoms, which we had for hundreds of years, are being taken away from us under the name of the war on terror, when the real big terrorists are the governments of Britain and the United States. They are the real rogue states breaking international law, invading other people's countries, killing their children in the name of anti-terrorism, when in fact, all they're achieving is to make more terrorists in the world, not less, to make the world more dangerous, rather than less. These are our priorities."

You can read the entire transcript here. Over at the American Spectator, there is more on Galloway's "truth" in front of the Senate Permanent Subcommittee of Investigations.

Yet another enlightened individual who insists that if the world wants to be rid of terrorism, the U.S. and cronies should simply stop committing terrorist acts. Andrew Cochran calls Galloway the "inspiration of the European left," which is a frightening thought indeed.

Is there some unwritted rule that states the more unglued a person is, the better their chance of rising to the top of the leftist heap? Galloway is further evidence that, along with Dean and Michael Moore, the left has become the home of angry conspiracy theorists, not leaders to be taken seriously. A curiosity perhaps, like exotic animals at the zoo, or moon rocks.
