    Davy McFaul: Your numerous references to ‘catholic fundamentalist hate groups’ ‘catholic fundamentalist terrorism’ ‘catholic fundamentalist terrorists’ etc?

    Or perhaps I have this wrong. Perhaps you do know the (Roman) Catholics that you speak of in these groups?

    If I call Islamic fundamentalists ‘Islamic fundamentalists’ am I being sectarian?

    Mc Slaggart: In what way was those examples an “abuse” or majority rule?

    Morpheus: What the hell…

    …describing children going to their primary school as coat-tailing through a Protestant area.

    They are deliberately walking past the homes of IRA victims in the company of their parents (many of them IRA members and supporters from Ardoyne (including the sectarian killer of Trevor Kell)) when there is another route to go which doesn’t intimidate or aggravate anyone.

    if you can describe elderly men walking to church on a Sunday morning as ‘coat-trailing’ then surely this ticks the box too?

    Not sectarian in the slightest.

  4. Comment on Vision for Belfast unveiled by Lord Mayor Máirtín Ó Muilleoir who promises to “remain relentlessly positive” about the city this year
    on 31 July 2013 at 2:25 pm

    Worth remembering that, during The Troubles, this man was the IRA’s answer to Joseph Goebbels.

    While he might not pulled a trigger himself, how many people died because of the rabble-rousing, sectarianism and pro-terrorism message printed in his ‘newspapers’?

    Hard to take his ‘I’m a nice guy’ image seriously when you remember some of things he ‘spun’ back in the day.

    Mc Slaggart: Meanwhile, in other elected bodies and councils, Nationalists abuse majority rule in a way that would make Robert Mugabe blush

    (you need to give examples to support your claim.)

    Have you been living under a rock?

  6. Comment on What’s driving this animus against Suffolk Protestants?
    on 31 July 2013 at 2:14 pm

    Reader: Some of them were armed with hurley sticks. That doesn’t mean that they were all issued with a GAA pogrom kit – but it does suggest that some of them left home with the intention of causing trouble rather than just improvised with bricks and bottles while milling about in the street. Work with references you can stand over; don’t put your faith in the semi-random words of a ‘politician’ who can’t manage precision and will prefer to do a bit of stirring instead.

    We seem to be in agreement then.

    I did not say the GAA organised the attempted pogrom on protestant homes in Suffolk, I merely said they armed the thugs responsible by providing them with deadly weapons to take home after training/a match.

    That is factually correct.

    Davy McFaul: Given your rabid sectarianism I’d be surprised if you knew any (Roman) Catholics at all

    Please give just ONE example of something sectarian which I have posted before I report you for man playing.

    Doug: So what’s your solution?

    If Nationalists cannot accept their obligations in the GFA, then Unionists should not have to accept theirs.

    If they continue to attack my nationality, identity and culture then the concessions provided by Unionists in the GFA must be reversed.

    1, End to undemocratic mechanisms in Assembly
    2, Return to jail of freed IRA terrorists
    3, End to Free State nose-poking in our internal UK affairs
    4, No convicted criminals in Assembly

    That would do for starters.

    on 31 July 2013 at 2:05 pm

    Davy McFaul: Also the video you provide from CNN; do the first twenty seconds of the video not exist and does these non existent images of loyalists rioting protesting coupled with the ‘protestor’ draped in the Union Flag AT 1.11 guldering at the PSNI ‘we’re going to the Markets ****, **** you’ give the impression of a ‘peaceful protest’?

    Are you suggesting the Short Strand youths were able to hear ‘We’re going to the Markets!’ from a mile away and, only then, decided to arm themselves with bottles in order to launch an attack?

    Are you also suggesting protestants deserve to be attacked simply for walking past the Markets or Short Strand? That’s what it sounds like.

    Reader: You don’t speak for me.

    I didn’t say I did. I said the vast majority of Unionists will agree with my criticism of SF, the SDLP, GAA, Irish News, etc. If you want to argue that they don’t perhaps you should flesh out your argument a bit?

    The loyalist paramilitary fanboy stuff is dragging you down too – they are dead weight.

    Released government documents have shown the British government would have shipped out in the early days of The Troubles if it hadn’t been for the fear of civil war in NI. Had it not been for the existence of the UDA and UVF we would have been left defenceless at the mercy of Dublin rule – no doubt the likes of you, Basil McCrea and Alex Kane would have been on the front line as the Irish Army crossed the border :rolleyes:

    What are you trying to achieve? This was a topic where local contacts backed up by actual news reports should have given you the chance to highlight that sectarianism goes both ways – and where are you? You’re in a ridiculous argument about hurley sticks, based on a sloppy throwaway remark by Ruth Patterson.

    What’s your point here? Are you trying to say that these mob of catholic extremists were NOT armed with GAA bats as they attacked protestant families and their property? Eyewitnesses and local politicians have confirmed it is true.
