After Stunning Defeat, Galloway Says ‘Racists, the Vile and Zionists Will be Celebrating’

The flamboyant leader of the British Respect Party conceded his overwhelming defeat in Bradford to a Labour Party up-and-comer on Thursday, handing off the celebration to the “racists and the Zionists.”

Donning a black fedora and speaking in a somber tone, the former MP and Respect Party mainstay George Galloway addressed a small crowd of supporters and journalists after election results in Bradford West showed Labour’s Naseem Shah led with 50% of votes to Galloway’s 21%.

“There will be others who are already celebrating,” he lamented. “The venal and the vile, the racists and the Zionists will all be celebrating. The hyena can dance on the lion’s grave, but it can never be a lion.”

Galloway, who was expelled from Labour in 2003 before becoming an MP for Respect first in 2005, is best known outside of England for his harsh anti-Israel views, sympathizing with various Middle Eastern dictators, recently declaring Bradford an “Israel-free zone,” and for his strident opposition to the war in Iraq.

BBC Journalist Mistakenly Taken for Jewish Taunted by British Intellectual Commanding She ‘Get Back in the Oven’

A BBC journalist mistakenly identified as a Jew was told at a recent high-end London event to “get back in...

Though he was soundly defeated by Labour newcomer Naseem Shah, whose party itself suffered resounding defeat in Thursday’s elections, the Respect Party leader vowed to remain in politics.

“I’m not in my grave,” he said. “As a matter of fact, I’m going off now to plan my next campaign.”

In addition to Galloway’s electoral ouster, another staunch Israel critic, the Liberal Democrats’ David Ward, lost his office in Bradford East to Labour’s Imran Hussain. Ward had been furloughed from the Liberal Democrats after questioning Israel’s right to exist.

    Over time, George Galloway had just became more of a toad with each passing year! Truly a vile, small-minded and extremely prejudiced little man! As more than commenter remarked, “Good Riddance!” And cant help adding, “And don’t the door hit you on the back where the good Lord made a crack!!”

  • I think this is the third election Galloway has lost. He takes after his Irish heritage mother who supported the Irish Republican Army, the local terrorists. From what I’ve seen of Galloway he comes across as a third rate debater trying to intimidate others, refusing to debate Israelis who know the facts and can therefore answer him. He was reputedly a supporter of Saddam Husein’s Iraq.

  • David Shinegold

    George, you’re no lion. You’re not even a decent pussy cat!

  • Uriel Priwes

    Good riddance to bad garbage!

  • yes just like you would be celebrating if you had won you hypocrite so stop your crying and move on.

  • Natan

    Delighted to see Galloway “thrown Out”. He is a vile and wild man who constantly supported
    the so called Palestinian cause, enjoyed the company of rogue Arab Dictators, all of whom, like himself have been toppled.

    Hoping to never see, or hear from him again….

  • Oh such bitter regret when one loses ones “Crown” and can’t play Queen for a day !
    It is so easy to pass fault to others than admit our own deep weakness and dispare. I think this so called ” Minister of Respect”, should have looked up the meaning of the word.
    Sadly out of many many closets, vile racists like this creature are becoming empowered to blame Israel and allies of Israel.The ignorant, uneducated who are all too willing to say I have a bad job because of the Jews, my bills are too high because of the Jews, again my friends there is no cure for “Stupid” !
    Stupid, though is an ember that must be carefully watched prior to igniting another conflagration ! England seems to have so many court “Jesters” I wonder how do they run their country ?
    Shalom, from a proud old Zionist Jew !

    It seems that the Almighty has heard and has removed from the the Halls of Westminster the greatest democracy in the history of the world those who abuse the positions and who forget that Great Britain has always come to the protection of the persecuted

  • jarred

    This is one Zionist who is going to have the Mother of all Parties…Now that this disgusting piece of trash has been royally trashed…..

  • Per Ardua

    That man must be insane.

  • Paul

    Naah, decent, fair-monded people will be celebrating, prejudiced hate mongerers will be sad.

  • Actually, George Galloway’s farewell, with its mention of lions and hyenas, is very reminiscent of Hitler’s last will and testament – and the similarity does not end there.

      Hi Josephine — apparently, it was Saddam Hussein Gallowbags was quoting there, and ironically from a poem he wrote very near his own end.

      http://forward.com/opinion/307862/dancing-on-george-galloways-grave//

      An ex-pat British friend assures people that Galloway won last time only courtesy of lesser Pakistani clan groups in Bradford. This time out the Pakistani establishment got their candidate in and, the best Gallowbags could do when talking about politics in the British city with the largest percentage of Muslim citizens was to make out like they were playing useful idiots to the Zionists instead of to himself.

    • Lauren Goldman

      Nixon’s parting words; “You won’t have Dick Nixon to kick around anymore.” Galloway, you lost because you are a raging a**hole. True losers never admit their part in their failures.

  • Well this Zionist is celebrating!

  • Barry

    Haha! Scumbag can now go clean toilets (?) In ramallah. He describes himself perfectly as a vile racist. Hope he has his neck cancer removed.

  • Charlene

    Divine justice methinks, Ward and Galloway are no loss in fact nice to know when many on ordinary street struggle to make ends meet and more people face penury and have to resort to using food banks they will not enjoy inflated salaries and expense accounts because in reality they are fascists, racists and dangerous immoral men who should not have public funding and even worse public platforms to spread their propaganda and vile hatreds. They are hitlerian to the core. I celebrate.

  • Michael Levy

    Hey Galloway! It seems as if the general public have lost all of the “respect” which they had for you and yes, this is one “vile Zionist” who is celebrating big time over your defeat. So, who’s the vile one now eh?!!!

  • Bullfrog Europe

    Great news .. Goodbye and good riddance !

  • citizenstat

    The scumbag got what was coming to him. Lion? Hah! Lizard is more like it.

  • Jack

    More like the hyena skulking off cause the lion won’t share it’s kill.
    Poor Georgie, always so dramatic but with lines that don’t live up to the occasion.

  • noanoa

    Ahhhh, Galloway the retard lost the election, what a wonderful thing.

    Now that he’s a full fledged loser, he can convert to Islam and be 100% LOSER, and travel
    to Syria, where he can blend with the rest of the losers there.

    Happy Lovely

  • David Pinto

    What a hoot! Galloway defeated by someone named Naseem Shah, and another Israel critic defeated by someone named Imran Hussain! Poetic justice, anyone?

  • Steve Loeb

    Bradford West is now a GALLOWAY FREE ZONE …. heheheheheh suck it up George you POS. They threw you out on your behind

  • SteveHC

    Galloway is such a cheap, anti-Semitic piece of garbage that he refuses to come out and state that it OBVIOUSLY was the Muslims and Islamists of his own territory that voted him out of office in favor of one of their own. The guy is downright vile.

  • Fred

    He should take a sabbatical in Iran where he will be celebrated on a gallow for Galloway.

  • IHersh.

    Yes, I am celebrating this sub human’s defeat
