I’m bumping this post to remind Los Angeles-area readers to join me this Thursday to greet Mr. Galloway.
He’ll be speaking (supporting the sales of his book) at 3300 Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles.
You can buy tickets for $12.50 here or by calling 1-866-468-3399, and I’d really, really like to encourage you to do so.
First, because you need to look at the face of what we’re struggling against here in the West. If you’re opposed to the war and to Bush, it’s important that you understand how the leadership of your movement is being captured by people like Galloway – people who don’t have a chance in hell at connecting with the average American voter. If, like me, you’re for the war and for the left, you need to understand how this monstrous man has sold out labor unions and socialists in Iraq and the Middle East to suck dollars for his vacation home in Spain from the dictators there. If you’re for the war and
for against the left, you should come to cheer him on because he’s a millstone around progressive causes here and in the U.K.
Some of us will be doing peaceful, informational leafleting outside the event. If you’d like to join us, drop me an email at the site address on the right.
Update: Here’s Patrick Belton liveblogging his debate with Hitchens (I couldn’t get a stream).
