start with the great Dr. Love himself, Dr. Oliver
Cromwell. He did such a good job in Ireland that the
problem he tried to finish still exists today. Also
try going to Barbados and ask the Irish/Scotch community
in the parish of St. Andrews, what do they think of
loyalists? How about 1798, 1803, 1848, 1858, 1883,
1916 & 1972. All years that uprisings occurred
and were stopped. Why? Did you ever stop by Glasnevin
cemetery and look at the headstones of all those people
who had nothing to do but make trouble? Why? Didn't
they have families & friends? Why was Dublin castle
around for so long?
Protestant rich, wannabe English leaders of their
community in Ulster have been looking over there shoulder
for so long -- Why? When you force people off their
land so others can have it, take away their native
language as well, and don't allow them to worship,
why? No less than your god. Why? Don't you think that's
a good reason to look over your shoulder?
when the rich get power, they divide the people so
they can stay in power. Why? You talk of the soldiers
of Ulster. Do you think they were fighting for Ulster?
I believe they were fighting to escape miserable conditions,
in which James Connolly and James Larkin were fighting
for. A better life, with no-class conscience system.
Jobs, money and security. Who knew machine guns would
be blazing, mustard gas be poring on them. Who knew?
The rich, who else?
look at northern Ireland today? Can a unionist from
Shankill Road walk down the Falls Road and feel comfortable?
Vice versa for nationalists down the Shankill Road.
Why? Who created this us versus them or the unionist
siege mentality? Why?
Dr John, before you
blame the IRA for everything, stop and ask yourself,
How did it get this ugly? Why?
am persuaded that this is a righteous judgment of
God upon these barbarous wretches who have imbrued
their hands in so much innocent blood and that it
will tend to prevent the effusion of blood for the
future." Dr. Oliver Cromwell after Drogheda
