Do Not Become That Which You Despise

We have written much, mainly on social media, about the dehumanising rhetoric of Irish republicanism. About how republicans have carefully crafted a malignant stereotype of the Loyalist and wider Unionist community in Northern Ireland, reducing an entire people down to a grotesque caricature. That pernicious and nakedly sectarian narrative has now become so deeply entrenched within the republican and so-called ‘nationalist’ community that it is now almost ubiquitous. Indeed, one would be hard pressed to find any Irish republicans, at least any under the age of 50, who are not firmly convinced that the ‘PUL’ community are a shambling, Ill-educated, ignorant and backwards people, obsessed with flags and marching.

“Dehumanisation is a first step towards genocide

The stereotype was carefully constructed and like all stereotypes it has, at it’s core, some kernel of validity. Irish republicans have, however, taken every negative aspect, every questionable facet, of the Loyalist/Unionist community and exaggerated them, twisted them beyond all recognition, creating a kind of Frankenstein’s monster from the rotten pieces of a cadaver that has never really existed.

The Twilight of the ‘Superprods’

Loyalism could stoop to the same odious, contemptible depths as republicanism, that however, would be both morally and politically wrong. In the 1980’s and 90’s Loyalist leaders, especially within the Ulster Democratic Party (and its predecessor, the NUPRG), worked tirelessly to eradicate the kind of narrow sectarian attitude which had existed within certain elements of Loyalism in the 1970’s, the sort of retrograde attitude typified by Paisley and the various ‘movements’ and ‘forces’ he and his fellow travellers headed from the mid 60’s onwards.

The ‘superprod’ segment of Loyalism, which was already very much a fringe element, was well and truly marginalised. Policy documents such as Beyond the Religious Divide (1979) and Common Sense (1987), made it abundantly clear that there was no room, at least within the Ulster Defence Association and its satellite groups, for the sort of lazy sectarianism purveyed by the ‘superprods’.

Common Sense; the brainchild of John McMichael

That is not a denial of the, sometimes overtly, sectarian actions of the UDA/UFF. It must be remembered however that “two eyes for an eye” was a military tactic. A brutal and callous tactic but one that nevertheless proved effective in the long term. The dual strategy of targeting republican activists and those who afforded them logistical, financial and moral support ultimately forced PIRA/Sinn Fein to the negotiating table, no longer able to ignore the pressure being exerted upon their movement and the community which provided the support and backup necessary to sustain their terrorist campaign.

Comparison of Ideology

Loyalism cannot be allowed to go backward. We cannot, and will not, stoop to the level of our opponents. We must recognise the humanity of our enemies. We must not allow ourselves to cultivate ignorant and dehumanising stereotypes about the Irish republican community, even though that is precisely what republicans have done in regards to our community. Loyalism is not a corrosive ideology, it is not seditious or insurgent. Loyalism does not have to dehumanise others.

At its core Ulster Loyalism is about reforming and maintaining the state and it’s institutions, Irish republicanism is about subversion, insurrection and the overthrow of the state. Rather than alienating and ‘othering’ people, Loyalism will profit infinitely more through inclusion and respect. At the very least we must remember that our opponents, even those who were formerly engaged in terrorism and those who act as apologists for that violence, are still human beings with genuine aspirations and fears and concerns. We are not Nazis, Communists or Irish republicans. We must retain the dignity, the core values and the integrity of our ideology. To do otherwise would be to betray the legacy of McMichael, Barr, Smallwoods et al.

Fight the Stereotype

The toxic narrative of Irish republicanism will never be challenged from within. The cult of violent failure allows for little in the way of dissent. Therefore it is incumbent upon Loyalists to undermine and destroy the malignant, repulsive myths spun by Irish republicans about our community and to challenge the stereotypes so carefully constructed about us.

Irish republicanism; the politics of violent failure

Challenge those who purvey these pernicious lies. Dispel their hateful mythos but do not lower yourself to their level. Conduct yourself with self respect and dignity. Never forget that you, as a Loyalist, seek to maintain and to protect, whereas those who oppose us seek to destroy, subvert, undermine and usurp. Remind yourself that Irish republicanism has been trying, and miserably failing, to attain its nefarious objectives for over 100 years and that for 98 years they have tried to destroy the state of Northern Ireland. Without success.

Perhaps such abject and abysmal failure is a motivating factor in the republican movements efforts to dehumanise and degrade the Loyalist and wider Unionist community. Perhaps it is a side effect of the cognitive dissonance caused by constantly being told that they are, at the same time, both a race of “gaelic supermen” and the world’s most victimised, oppressed and downtrodden people. Whatever is behind it, their wretched narrative will be demolished. It is a weapon which Loyalists can, and should, use against them.

Peace & Good Will to All Men (except Prods)

A week from today it’ll be Christmas Eve. Unbelievable I know. Still, there will be peace on Earth & glad tidings to all. Won’t there? Well, no, there won’t. Sadly we live in Northern Ireland and we have to share our “wee country” with irish republicans, the majority of whom are vile, reprehensible, miserable & perpetually outraged. So, no peace & good will for the Loyalist/Unionist community.

You want me to give you a few examples? Are you sure? I must warn you that what you’re about to see will not be pleasant. You might need to get some eye bleach. Oh well, fair warning, you asked for it!

Meet “Derry Lad”. He’s a lovely wee fella, don’t you think? I wonder if he has any connection to another certain republican Twitter account?

He used to claim to be “cross community” lol. Almost as laughable as the time he said he was a Loyalist from East Belfast called Billy! Doesn’t even attempt to hide his hostility towards the “PUL” community anymore. Tut tut.

muh 800 years of Brit oppression”. Tragic really. Imagine being so stuck in the past & so bitter that you still get triggered by something that happened nearly a millennia ago! It’s almost as pathetic & hateful as…. as…. well, this-

Just take a minute or two to appreciate just how twisted, bitter & full of hate you have to be to get angry at an airport! An AIRPORT. And people like & retweet this toxic garbage. Mind boggling.

Above, “hilarious satire”. Apparently.

Then we have the master tacticians of the republican movement.

Gibraltar, the Falklands, the Isle of Wight, the Outer Hebrides, the Isle of Dogs- not British! Yup. You heard. Not British. Nuh uh. Nope. Can’t be. Chrissy says so.

I suppose when you have a favourite gif you just have to use it dozens of times. Every day. Maybe it’s a sign of intelligence?

Fghijk indeed. Wise words there. But let’s get back to the “lads”, here’s Derry Lad (or “LAD”?) again.

A nice, well mannered, peace loving chap, as I’m sure you’ll agree.

A bit more honest about his views than the other Lad but just as foul mouthed & intellectually challenged. See below for details –

Nice to see the English language being used with such respect & dedication to the unspoken rules of civilised discourse.

Back to Londonderry Boy….. err, sorry, Derry Lad & one of his wee mates, replying to a tweet from an elected representative about the erection of a fitting memorial to the dead of Belfast Blitz. Yes, that’s right, triggered by a memorial to civilians killed by Nazi Germany!

Superb bunch of “lads”. Wouldn’t it be just wonderful to have to share the dinner table with such eloquent, erudite, intelligent, well brought up, cheerful & not at all deranged people this Christmas?

On that note dear readers, adieu. Myself & my fellow “editorial staff” (see what we did there?) would like to wish our readers a very happy Christmas & a peaceful, prosperous 2019!

Somewhere over the rainbow!

Are you sitting comfortably? Nice & relaxed? Good. Then I’ll begin. You see, once upon a time there were a group of naughty little elves who called themselves ‘Irish republicans’. These mischievous imps kept trying to lure the niave & the innocent away from their homes & into a marvellous world of magic & unicorns known as ’32 County Irish Socialist Republic-land“. A wonderful place in which time stood still. Everyone was “cherished equally” & the coins had lovely representations of chickens & fishes on them.

Except that it wasn’t like that at all. Once ensnared by these gaelic ghouls their poor, unfortunate victims found that 32 County Irish Republic-land was really a harsh & violent place, full of hatred, vitriol & malice. Indeed, far from being a wondrous realm of rainbows & sugar-plums, it is, in fact, a dark & nightmarish place.

Yet still the Irish republican elves did their thing, weaving their magical tales of 32 County Irish Republic-land, or as they sometimes called it- “the kingdom of love & buttercups”. Do not be fooled dear reader! Don’t be taken in by their tales of treasure & easy living; love, magic & free golden harps for all. Your old Uncle Thursday has magic of his own. I have captured their fairy stories & rendered them into visual form!

Behold gentle reader- the honeyed words of these seductive succubuses. Their siren songs of peace, love & togetherness. Surely there have never been sweeter, more inviting words of love & tenderness-

And finally…..

Such sweet words of tenderness, carefully designed to lure the unwary. Do not fall for their tempting promises of utopia. Uncle Thursday will return next week with more carefully selected examples of their dark arts, till then dear reader……….. have a good night & please- don’t have nightmares.

PIRA/Sinn Fein: A Movement Without Morals (Part One)

Epilogue

I was recently asked why I oppose Irish nationalism/republicanism. As though opposition to that repugnant doctrine were somehow unnatural or scarcely fathomable. There are many, many valid reasons for opposing Irish nationalism. One of my main motivations however is the absolute moral vacuum within which Irish nationalism exists. There is no better example of this than the vicious, genocidal, perfidious movement which now claims leadership of the Irish nationalist/republican body politic. I refer of course to Provisional IRA/Sinn Fein. An organisation so lacking in morality, so devoid of decency, that their deeds would shame Satan himself.

I will, no doubt, be accused of hyperbole. Those who, albeit surreptitiously, seek to defend the Provos, by downplaying their maniacal actions or attempting to justify their crimes, will accuse me, or indeed anyone who shines a light onto the nefarious Provo war machine, of fabrication, exaggeration and all sorts of other things. This is not unexpected. Because for PIRA/SF members, and supporters, criticism is anathema. This Fascist clique do not deal well with anything but unflinching, sycophantic praise. For their murderous actions and repulsive misdeeds though, they deserve nothing but criticism, scorn and contempt.

A History of Murder and Mayhem

Since it’s inception in 1970, the Provisional IRA have proven time and again that human life means nothing to them. The rules of war were not held in high esteem by these psychopaths and degenerate killers either. I have no intention of listing every PIRA/SF atrocity. Others have documented those tragedies much better and much more extensively than I. What I do intend to do however, is to highlight those instances of Irish nationalist barbarism, so disgusting, so utterly abhorrent, so completely depraved, that they will demonstrate, unquestionably, the lack of anything even approaching morality within the nefarious Provisional movement.

The politicos of Sinn Fein may sit in Stormont, playing at being statesmen, acting the very model of innocence and rectitude, but their actions can never be forgotten. The charges against them are written in the blood of dead women and children. Loyalists, such as myself, will not allow PIRA/SF to whitewash the history of ‘The Troubles’ or sanitise their role in that conflict. The pseudo-liberal apologists will scream “just move on, forget the past” but that will never happen. Those who squeal most loudly about ‘moving on’ are the very same cowardly vermin who used money and social status to insulate themselves from the realities of war. It is easy for them to repeat their amnesiac mantra, for it was not them or their families who suffered and died.

Baby Killers and Kidnappers

One of the most awful, most horrific incidents in the history of the entire Conflict occurred on Saturday, the 11th of December, 1971. Shoppers on Belfast’s exclusively Protestant Shankill Road, busily went about their business. Outside the Balmoral Furniture Showroom, unbeknownst to the people going in and out, a PIRA murder gang, motivated by pure sectarian hatred, lurked nearby in a stolen car, planning murder and destruction. At 12.25 pm, the stolen car pulled up outside “Moffats”, as the Balmoral Furniture Company was known locally.  One of the occupants got out, leaving a box containing a bomb on the step outside the front door. The hatefilled lunatic got back into the car and it sped away. The device exploded moments later, bringing down most of the building on top of the innocent people inside the shop and on passersby outside. The bomb killed four people. Two were grown men, employees of the furniture business, Hugh Bruce, aged 70 and Harold King, aged 29. The other two unfortunate victims of the blast were babies. Not children. Not teenagers. Not toddlers. They were babies! Little Tracey Munn, aged 2, and Colin Nicholl, who was just 17 months old. Both died instantly when part of the building’s wall crashed down upon the pram they were sharing. Nineteen people were seriously injured in the cowardly attack, including Tracey Munn’s young mother and a number of other women and children. Understandably the attack provoked much anger in the local community and many young men rushed to join the UVF and the Ulster Freedom Fighters as a result.

Provisional Sinn Fein/IRA, a gang of baby killing cowards!

Provisional Sinn Fein/IRA, a gang of baby killing cowards!

Over the course of the next twelve months many more innocent civilians (including children) died at the hands of PIRA/Sinn Fein, but it was one particularly disgusting murder, committed almost exactly a year after the Provos had murdered the two babies on the Shankill, that caused universal revulsion, and still does. Jean McConville, a widowed mother of ten young children, was badly beaten by female members of PIRA/SF at her home in Divis Flats, before being abducted by up to a dozen male Provo ‘soldiers‘, taken to an unknown location, probably in the Irish Republic, where she was tortured (physically and probably sexually) before being murder in cold blood. Her ‘crime’ was that she had given a sip of water to an injured soldier. After taken the terrified Mrs McConnville away from her children, torturing and murdering her, the Provo cowards hadn’t even the common human decency to return the woman’s mortal remains to her grieving family. Not content with killing Protestant babies in their prams, PIRA/SF was now killing widowed mothers. It seems there was no depth to which these thugs would not sink.

The Blood of Dead Children is on Your Hands

It is a mark of eternal shame upon this nation, that we have for a Deputy First Minister, a cowardly, snivelling, lying, murdering bastard like Martin McGuinness. McGuinness, by his own admission, was ‘Officer Commanding’ the Provo’s so-called ‘Derry Brigade’ in the early seventies. He has, without doubt, the blood of many innocent people on his hands. One of those innocents was nine year old Gordon Gallagher. The little boy was playing in the front garden of his family home in Leenan Gradens, in the Creggan area of Derry City, when a Provo bomb abandoned in the garden, exploded. Gordon Gallagher was killed instantly. Unbelievably, Irish republicans in the city actually blamed the Army for leaving a bomb in the garden of a residential area. The cowards could not even bring themselves to admit that it was their despicable gang of thugs that had killed the unfortunate child. In fact, they did not admit responsibility for the atrocity until 2012!

No one seems to know just why PIRA/SF planted a bomb in an innocent family’s front garden. Maybe ‘Commander Marty’ ordered the bomb to be left there because Gordon Gallagher’s mother or father was a suspected informer. Maybe Gordon’s mother had once said good morning to a soldier or an RUC officer. Perhaps the intended targets were soldiers, who happened to have passed the house weeks earlier. We will never know. The Provos, like the Mafia, rarely break their oath of silence. The murder of a nine year old boy is completely unjustifiable. PIRA/Sinn Fein compounded their crime by not even having the balls to admit what they had done until almost 30 years after the event. Just as they could not bring themselves to admit the heinous killing of Jean McConville, they couldn’t quite bring themselves to admit the murder of a young boy either. Thus demonstrating once again that the Provisional republican movement are not only murdering scum but also cowards.
