Seumas Milne’s 12 minutes of hate, and the anti-Imperialism of fools

What happens when you bring together Guardian Associate Editor, Seumas Milne, Hamas supporter Tariq Ali, and all-purpose anti-Israel activist (and recent CiF columnist) Jody McIntyre – with a video introduction by anti-Semitic hip hop artist, and 9/11 truther, Lowkey – at an event called “What is Imperialism?”

You catch a glimpse into the Guardian’s world view.

While the presentations varied according to the “expertise” of the speaker, the hundreds of people who jammed into the University of London Union were united under one core belief: That the U.S., the UK, and Israel represent the greatest forces of oppression in the world today, and that terrorists – whether they operate in Kabul, Baghdad, or Gaza City – can reasonably be seen as legitimate “resistance” movements.

You can see an overall summary of the event (which was kindly promoted by the youth publication of Christian Aid) at McIntyre’s  blog, but I urge you to watch Milne’s speech in its entirety as it serves to illustrate the ideological orientation which informs the anti-Zionism he, and the newspaper he works for, is so adept at promoting.
