Nobel Peace Prize Winner: “I Could Kill George Bush”

• Views: 3,909

Here’s some absolutely classic “progressive” cognitive dissonance mixed with cringing dhimmitude, with a creamy topping of unselfconscious hypocrisy, from Irish Nobel Peace Prize winner Betty Williams—who told the International Women’s Peace Conference in Dallas that she wanted to “kill George Bush.”

You know … peacefully kill him.

Nobel Peace Prize winner Betty Williams came from Ireland to Texas to declare that President Bush should be impeached.

In a keynote speech at the International Women’s Peace Conference on Wednesday night, Ms. Williams told a crowd of about 1,000 that the Bush administration has been treacherous and wrong and acted unconstitutionally.

“Right now, I could kill George Bush,” she said at the Adam’s Mark Hotel and Conference Center in Dallas. “No, I don’t mean that. How could you nonviolently kill somebody? I would love to be able to do that.”

About half the crowd gave her a standing ovation after she called for Mr. Bush’s removal from power.

“The Muslim world right now is suffering beyond belief,” she said. “Unless the president of the United States is held responsible for what he’s doing and what he has done, there’s no one in the Muslim world who will forgive him.” …

Ms. Williams started her speech by asking every member of the audience to hug everyone around them.

Her little fantasy of nonviolent murder got the attention of the conference organizers, who acted quickly to distance themselves from the inevitable visit from the Secret Service.

Conference organizers have said that the conference is nonpartisan and that no one was invited to speak about the war in Iraq. After Ms. Williams finished her speech, conference chairwoman Carol Donovan took the podium to say that Ms. Williams did not speak for the conference – only herself.

“It’s important for us to separate the opinion of the person and the position of the conference,” Ms. Donovan said.

UPDATE at 7/12/07 8:57:09 am:

Last year, Betty Williams said the same thing to an audience of schoolchildren in Australia: Nobel Peace Laureate Wants to Kill.

“I have a very hard time with this word ‘non-violence’, because I don’t believe that I am non-violent,” said Ms Williams, 64.

“Right now, I would love to kill George Bush.” Her young audience at the Brisbane City Hall clapped and cheered.
