Paisley: we must first win the war!

Ian Paisley always makes good copy. On Adams and Sinn Fein: “I’ll not be talking to him as long as he keeps his guns and his terrorism. He tells us he all for peace, when all the time he’s planning for war. The only way forward for Northern Ireland is to first of all win the war”. When confronted by Noel Thompson with a question on murders committed by Ulster Resistence guns, “Gerry Adams should go home and shave off his beard. Then he’d be a barefaced liar instead of a bearded liar”.

We are reader supported. Donate to keep Slugger lit!

For over 20 years, Slugger has been an independent place for debate and new ideas. We have published over 40,000 posts and over one and a half million comments on the site. Each month we have over 70,000 readers. All this we have accomplished with only volunteers we have never had any paid staff.

Slugger does not receive any funding, and we respect our readers, so we will never run intrusive ads or sponsored posts. Instead, we are reader-supported. Help us keep Slugger independent by becoming a friend of Slugger. While we run a tight ship and no one gets paid to write, we need money to help us cover our costs.

If you like what we do, we are asking you to consider giving a monthly donation of any amount, or you can give a one-off donation. Any amount is appreciated.
