There is considerable method in NATO’s madness, the same madness that sees Julian Assange incarcerated and Gaza, Syria and far too many civilians and soldiers being bombed on a regular basis.
NATO’s Irish Independent’s 6th January edition carried a smear report on how current MEPs Clare Daly and Mick Wallace, together with former British MP George Galloway, were due to speak at “an anti-NATO rally” in London’s St Pancras’ Church on February 25th. Although the entire report was a skewed smear piece on all of those due to speak at the conference, its most striking feature is that it broke the cardinal rule of reporting, which dictates when a story is newsworthy and when it is not. A smear piece on a modest meeting to be held in a foreign country in seven weeks’ time is not a story; it is an attempt, successful in this case, at deplatforming.
Sure enough, shortly after the Independent hit the presses, George Galloway reported that the Anglican cult, which controls that church, had cancelled the meeting and returned the organizers’ deposit. The most cursory twitter trawl would show that a large posse of NATO trolls actively opposed the meeting and, like their Banderite heroes in Kiev, were delighted at their success in repressing this latest attempt at free speech in the belly of the NATO beast.
Because I have been a guest on Galloway’s show a small number of times and I have also met Wallace and Daly. I know that both Galloway and Daly are excellent orators and formidable operators; Galloway, in fact, has been a guest on BBC to speak about how to be a good orator, such is the esteem his skills are held in. Daly has had her moments, most notably when she portrayed American President Obama in the Irish Parliament for the war criminal that he is and, as all three are meticulous in doing their homework, they are rarely wrong-footed by their political opponents when they are given a fair shake. Indeed, Galloway very famously wiped the floor of Capitol Hill with the American politicians who supported NATO’s genocidal campaign in Iraq. All in all, the conference would have been a delight for those into hearing fine speeches and finer orators.
Because having all three on your side in a debating competition would be a decided asset, NATO’s trolls pressurized the Anglicans to cancel the meeting and to then portray this act of fascism as some sort of victory for freedom of speech and Kiev’s Nazis, who are almost universally worshipped in NATOstan as The Risen Jesus, not least because folk like Galloway, Daly, Wallace are not given a fair shake to point to the moats in their eyes and the mass graves in their rump Reich.
NATO’s knuckle draggers are not into debate. Certainly, long time Syrian terrorist apologist Oz Katerji, whose tweets claimed the credit for intimidating the Anglicans into deplatforming Daly, Wallace, Galloway et al certainly isn’t. As this 2017 report and accompanying video shows, he has been a slightly deranged street level NATO knuckle dragger for quite a long time.
Galloway, Daly and Wallace are not the only victims of these NATO’s street gangs. Former USMC officer and military commentator Scott Ritter has also reported on how the knuckle draggers and their media toadies descended on Stateside meetings he was scheduled to speak at, which is a further pity as, in a democratic society, Ritter should be openly and honestly challenged so that the truth, whatever it is, may emerge.
Ritter, with some others, has been a regular commentator on the Ukrainian war and, with the imminent liberation of Soledar from the Kiev junta, it seems that Ritter, rather than NATO’s troll army, has been correctly forecasting the course of the war. Paying proper heed to those who make the correct forecasts, and to those like Wallace, Daly and Galloway who call attention to those forecasts is important as it can save Ukrainian and Russian lives. Not that NATO cares a whIt about their expendable cannon fodder but you get my point.
NATO’s preferred alternative is to stick our collective heads in the sand or, if you prefer, into Hitler’s bunker and pretend that Steiner will relieve Berlin, or Soledar, or Bakhmut or wherever it is young teenagers in military fatigues are now being sacrificed for the avarice of NATO’s Zelenskys and Bidens.
Though stopping the slaughter in Ukraine should be the main concern, it is not the only one. Here, an English woman tells Galloway that her bank confiscated her debit card, all because she tried to book a ticket to the conference with it. Paying a pittance to hear two current MEPs and a former MP, who is the head of a registered British political party, is not a crime and nor is it even suspicious, even if MI5 has the power, as they do in this case, to make it appear to be so.
And nor is linking to this site or including such links in emails, even if gmail says that my emails linking to Strategic Culture Foundation articles are “suspicious”. They are not. They are simply linking to this site, which NATO has decreed as a legitimate target for smears and more and that forces me to repost my articles, this one included, here,
Whether we are talking about this site, the No Nato conference or anything else, NATO will lose, as surely as they are losing in Ukraine. Prior to taking up her position as an MEP, Daly was central in forcing two Irish police commissioners and an Irish Justice Minister to resign, even though they all denied they were complicit in the corruption scandals which forced their resignations and for which Daly suffered considerable harassment and discrimination from that same corrupt NATO aligned Irish police force.
Although trying to shut up Wallace, Daly and Galloway is mad, there is considerable method in NATO’s madness, the same madness that sees Julian Assange incarcerated and Gaza, Syria and far too many civilians and soldiers being bombed on a regular basis. That madness, NATO’s madness, is why we must all scream the essential message of peace, if not from the rooftops, then wherever we can most effectively do so, no, no and no again to NATO.
