On Lord Haw-Haw Galloway's Tienanmen denial

On his Talksport radio show, George Galloway struck a conversation with a caller named "Carl", on the subject of the anniversary of the 1989 Tienanmen square massacre in China. The reality of history bitterly makes it necessary for us to refer to it as so. It was the only uprising of civil resistance against Communist authoritarianism of this era's spring that was remarkably brave, as in Eastern Europe, but crushed so bleakly and brutally. Galloway's response on the event to "Carl" however, was as follows:

"Yes I was thinking of you [Carl], when I was looking for pictures of the hundreds of deaths." And that "not a single" picture of a murdered dissent has "been adduced."

I answer Galloway with a few.

No, these pictures do not illustrate all the hundreds slaughtered by the People's Liberation Army on order of the Chinese state. But they are a starting point to convey the meaning Galloway's denialism. Only one example of his despicable apologetics for totalitarianism.
