Willie Frazer, Conor Murphy and fantasies

The Newsletter is reporting that Willie Frazer claims to have been the victim of an attempted kidnap in South Armagh; his own website also contains details of this episode, including the suggestion that this episode might have been in preparation for the murder of Mr. Frazer. Conor Murphy has described Mr. Frazer as “….a well-known fantastist.” Jim Allister seems less than convinced by this explanation.

  • Submariner

    Just read your link from the Protestant Pravda. It reads like some sort of Boys own tale.
    The sooner Willie [Walter Mitty] Frtazer gets the help he needs the better.

  • Turgon

    I must agree Willie’s site is always a bit odd and this time is no exception. The claim that his car was surrounded and an attempt was made to remove him from it, is, however, important. The police seem to be taking the claim seriously. The bit about him being about to be murdered in Crossmaglen may be rather silly but the idea of him being abducted and then murdered does have a precedent does not it? In addition Conor Murphy’s instant reaction also has a precedent.

  • glad

    Ithank the lord that willie is safe, and admire his courage in standing up to these thugs/scum in south armagh. As for conor murphy, i wouldnt believe a single word from his mouth, and it is interesting to see people dismiss it as “fantasy”, sadly for young paul quinn the fantasy world of south armagh was all too real. Willie has my 100% respect.

  • edward

    If willie fraser is so believable why did the caera man not back up his story?

    Funny old world, smells like a set up by wee willie for the “documentary”

    Frankly I think Murphy nailed it in one

  • Big Maggie

    How long more can Willie milk his victim status without bordering on the ridiculous. Oh wait, he’s just done it.

  • RepublicanStones

    Ahh Willie ‘they should never have in jail in the first place’ Frazer.

  • RepublicanStones

    ‘they should never have been in jail in the first place’ *

  • 6countyprod

    After reading the first Newsletter report I was a little sceptical. However, this new article in the Newsletter makes more sense and is a lot more credible.

  • ah willie you belong in hollywood! your talented imagination is going to waste on this side of the atlantic!

  • dunreavynomore

    Fantastic

    Never mind yer aul titanic building, come up to Cross for an experience in fantasy land. meet wiley willie who arrives every couple of weeks for another hair raising escapade, “Jaysus, it’s the rale stuff, boys, near kidnapped near Cross! an’ a big bomb in Jonesboro!! jaysus, boys!!.”
    Willie’s not on his own on the fantasy road as we have Minister Connor who is on a fantasy road to a United Ireland via Stormont driven by…, ah no, he doesn’t drive for him any more.
    On this fantastical road you will see lots of little folk cleaning bad colours out of diesel, environmental work of course and all in the name of old Ireland, you will notice large deposits of lithuanian whiskey where once grew good poitin and there are large sheds with bin bags full of money alongside the cigarrettes waiting to be divided between the shankill and the falls.
    Aye, willie is a fantatist but why wouldn’t he, are we all at it every beddy day we pretend to live in some kind of normal society. that applies especailly to sth armagh.

  • dunreavynomore

    excuse and apologies,
    last line of my previous post should have read “aren’t we all it every bleddy day we pretend to live in some kind of normal society. That applies especially to sth armagh.

  • veritas

    well its a change from getting kidnapped by shape shifting aliens representing the 13th tribe of Israel(lost and found)fundamentalist branch of the rulers of the Planet Xenu.

  • ulsterfan

    I hope Willie gets plenty of Financial support from both Governments to carry on this work and long may he prosper.

  • Paul McMahon

    Just been on weepin Willie’s site and even if he wasn’t an egomaniacal self publicist I’d still have trouble believing anything that he says. Anyone who constantly refers to themselves in the third person, a la Johnny Adair, is psychologically imbalanced.

    “I want to make it absolutely clear I am not out to stir the pot on policing and justice”

    Freudian slip by Willie methinks

  • Shirley McGuffin

    Sinn Fein members machine-gunned to death law-abiding Protestants while they were at prayer. They have murdered members of the security forces. They have massacred Protestant workers earning an honest crust. (manual labour, not diesel smuggling). They have bombed our main cities for decades. They are conviced fraudsters, torturers and cold-blooded executioners. And you care to believe them over Willie Frazer who, let it be said, was not allowed have a peaceful commemoration in Dublin, the foreign Mecca of Bandit Country’s scum.

  • Hmmm!
  • veritas

    after just watching that clip on his site what amazes me is that any sane person with an ounce on common sense can take this man at face value…

    “inbreds” and “I`ll follow your lorries” he must be a real kick at the office xmas ball…

    Lost the plot…

  • Big Maggie

    Shirley

    I don’t hold with all that subtlety. Why don’t you speak your mind?

  • ggn

    Is there any coorbarating evidence fromk the camera man in question.

    Mr Fraser has a penchant for publicity and a reputation for a certain excentricity.

    It is difficult to accept his story easily therefore.

  • Padraig

    If you go looking for trouble you’ll always find it and if you don’t find it you can always invent it and if you do find a little you can always exaggerate it.

    There’s no such thing as bad publicity.

    I hope Willie gets the help he needs, till then I hope he keeps taking the tablets…

  • Paul McMahon

    “A reputation for a certain excentricity”

    LOL, You’re very diplomatic GGN.

  • dunreavynomore

    a question arises as to how wille just happens to arrive in sth armagh , the republican part, when something is about to happen such as raids for laundered diesel around cross or a ‘bomb’ in jonesboro. would a wee mole in the psni be phoning willie??

  • New Yorker

    This alleged incident needs to be fully investigated. The local MP should be urging all witnesses to come forward, that is an obligation of his position as MP and Stormont Minister. If there is nothing to Frazier’s claims, then he is discredited. If there is something to his claim, then the perpetrators should be pursued.

    It merits investigation because Frazier’s claim is reasonable due to local unlawful activity of a similar nature. Witnesses will be critical to the investigation and that’s where the local MP needs to step up to his responsibilities.

  • Rory

    I am so relieved that Willie Frazer is safe and well and that he has been able to foil a kidnapping attempt by overpowering twenty men all on his own (the photographer’s professional neutrality making him useless as an ally). A kidnapping would not have been good. Where on earth could anyone be found to pay a ransom to get him back?

    Often in cases like these, where aliens are involved in the abduction, victims (well male victims at least) commonly complain that they were subjected to ‘anal probing’. Has Willie by any chance mentioned if any of this anal probing business was involved in his drama?

    If so, I would recommend that he get in touch with Iris Robinson as soon as possible. I hear that she is very knowledgeable about this sort of thing.

  • ulsters my homeland

    IRA Green Book says, [u]”Execution, as earlier stated is not the only way of making this category of establishment enemy ineffective: we can variously expose them as liars, hypocrites, collaborators, make them subjects of ridicule etc.”[/u]

    It would seem Conor Murphy is trying to make Frazer out to be a subject of ridicule.

  • Sneakers O’Toole

    It’s hard not to feel sorry for Willie- what he’s gone through is the stuff of nightmares.

    But, some people in his shoes develop an empathy for other victims, pray for reconciliation, hope no one else has to suffer the same thing.

    Willie’s gone the opposite way, allowing the hatred to build in himself and defending paramilitaries and nutjobs like Billy Wright.

    I wonder what sort of relationship he has with his wife and kids, if he has any. He strikes me as a deeply unhappy man that doesn’t seem to want to put his life back together.

  • Paul McMahon

    “It would seem Conor Murphy is trying to make Frazer out to be a subject of ridicule”

    Nah UMH, Willie does that alright by himself

  • Ulsters my homeland

    I tell you what, if I had as many close family members murdered by the IRA as Frazer has, I would be looking to jail these bastards and the criminal empire they run in Armagh. Thanks God, none of my close family members have been killed and I can only sympathise with Willie and hope that he succeeds in bringing these bastards to justice.

    Keep it up Wille, don’t let the scum bring you down.

  • pat

    It would seem Conor Murphy is trying to make Frazer out to be a subject of ridicule.

    Willie doesn’t need Murphy to make him the subject of ridicule, he does a good enough job himself.

    Does Willie still regard udr assassin Robert McConnell as an innocent victim?

  • Ulsters my homeland

    “[i]Willie doesn’t need Murphy to make him the subject of ridicule, he does a good enough job himself.”[/i]

    well that’s funny, I don’t think he does. He’s a man fighting for the rights of victims in lawless South Armagh and he needs help from everyone. If you think he makes himself look ridiculous, you obviously have no sympathy to give towards him, he’s a man who’s lost the dearest members of his family to a bunch of murdering scum and if you can’t find any sympathy in your heart for his cause, you’re the one who’s looking ridiculous.

  • Paul McMahon

    “He’s a man fighting for the rights of victims in lawless South Armagh and he needs help from everyone”

    Including Robery McConnell?

    “[Frazer] rejected claims that his father was in the UVF or that Joe McCullough, the UDR man whose throat had been slit by the IRA in 1976, had been in the UVF and involved in the Dublin and Monaghan bombings. UDR man Robert McConnell has also been linked to the UVF. His nephew Brian McConnell is prominent in FAIR. Frazer said that some of the UDR men shot in south Armagh, including Robert McConnell, had been helping the British SAS in undercover operations against the IRA.

    Robert McConnell has subsequently been identified as being responsible for the killing of the Reavey brothers the day before the Kingsmill massacre. This killing, and others was carried out by security force personnel in unionist paramilitary organizations – the terms UDR-UVF-RUC described the same people. Some the same personnel were also implicated in involvement in the Dublin-Monaghan bombings”

    Paul, what’s the point of this propaganda? Has it anything against Frazer are you trying to say he’s a terrorist?

  • Paul McMahon

    No, I’m saying he’s a hypocrite however the cops would appear to have a different opinion.

  • surely shome mishtake?

    What media organisation was this cameraman working for?

    Oor’ Willie seems gutted that the SAS and their loyalist lackeys can’t get into South Armagh to administer their kind of justice against nationalists anymore. We fail your pain, Willie. No doubt he’s now hot-footing it to Extravision to hire another old Bond film to find a new sidekick for his next adventure –
    Sadly Pussy Galore would not appear to be a credible option for wee Willie at this time.

  • Sneakers O’Toole

    I think the point is that he’s very selective in the “Innocent Relatives” he “Acts” for.

    Eugene Reavey is one of the few people who knows how it feels to go through the pain Frazer’s went through, losing three of his brothers in 24 hours.

    Yet Frazer had no problem engangering his life by hosting on his site the implication that he was involved in the Kingsmills massacre. This despite the RUC and Alan Black (survivor of Kingsmills) saying this was not the case.

    Likewise, as has been stated before, he believes Loyalist paramilitaries shouldn’t have been jailed. The Catholics and Protestants shot at Greysteel don’t count as Innocent Relatives apparently.

    The man might have went through a lot, and I’m sorry for his loss, but let’s call a spade a spade. He’s a bigot.

  • Ulsters my homeland

    I can’t understand the sarcasm Sluggers are using regards this attempted murder?? definite abduction innocent in South Armagh. Just think for one moment if it was your wife, husband, son or daughter, would you post in the same manner?

    Listen to Willie tell his story of “what he believed was a kidnap attempt” to David Dunseith here:

    It is the first item so no waiting or skipping required.

  • Sneakers O’Toole

    “you say he’s ‘selective’ in the innocents, How so?”

    It’s all in my post UMH, I’m not sure I can elaborate any more without basically repeating myself! Is there any specific part you disagree with?

  • Paul McMahon

    Why’s Willie a hypocrite, hmmmm, where do I start?

    How about campaigning for allegedly ‘innocent victims’ like Robert McConnell and then branding innocent victim Eugene Reavey a mass murderer?

    How about speaking of murder and so called ethnic cleansing yet have ‘a lot of time’ for a notoriously sectarian death squad leader?

    How about condemning terrorism while claiming the loyalists should never have been in jail for their acts of terrorism?

    Clear enough for you UMH?

    “So you’re using posts by another member to back up your argument?”

    Where do the rules on Slugger say that you can’t agree with other bloggers?

    Regardless of what anyone else says my opinions on Willie’s hypocrisy stand alone and are judged on their own strengths, however, Willie’s contradictions are so obvious it’s almost inevitable that there will be an overlap of opinion. I suspect that you’re trying to build a straw man.

    “Get out of the habit of using propaganda sites to back up your argument, Susan McKay and the horde of segregationists she works for would like nothing else than the likes of you to spread her shit”

    The Irish Times a propaganda site? Haven’t heard it called that before. So what do you reckon UMH was poor wee Willie misquoted by McKay or was she simply telling lies?

  • Ulsters my homeland

    David Dunseith comes across dodgy in that link your supplied rory.

  • Ulsters my homeland

    Thanks Paul McMahon

  • realist

    Why do people find it hard to believe this story?

    Willie has told it from his heart and how he and his cameraman seen it. His car having been rammed and then

    “They reversed back but several other cars blocked the way behind, and soon there were up to 20 men around the car.”

    Were they fools only 20 of them, did they think our brave Willie would go down without a fight. Did they think it was merely superman they were kidnapping?

    Willie’s story goes on:

    “The attackers soon had the doors open and were trying to drag Mr Frazer out of the car, but he was fighting to stay inside.

    “I could see the white van with both of the back doors open,” said Mr Frazer and they were shouting ‘get him out’. I have no doubt they intended to kidnap me.”

    “Mr Frazer said they punched and kicked him viciously and when they couldn’t get him fully out of the car, they repeatedly slammed the door on his leg.”

    Did they really think they could break the leg of our Willie so easily. There vicious attack may have been enough against mere mortals but our Willie’s will and his superinhuman powers were more than a match for 20 mere mortal Republicans.

    The story continued:
    “As a desperate last resort Mr Frazer reached into his coat and shouted: “Get back or I’ll shoot.”

    “With that they all scattered like rats,” he said. “Within 20 seconds there was not a sign of any of them on the road.”

    20 seconds and all 20 mere republicans and their cars and vans are all gone. Clearly these men should not be out kidnapping superinhuman Loyalists but should in some Olympic sport.

    The story continued:
    “The police were there 60 seconds after we phoned them,” he said.”. Well this was the final bit that may have made it all slightly unbelieveable, the cops turning up in 60 seconds. and yet still couldn’t see all these cars and people speeding off in a small village like Cross.

    Get a life Willie.

    Thanks for posting the link to the Dunseith interview. So now the PSNI have names and registration numbers to investigate.

    The caller who basically said there should not be any no-go areas in a free country is exactly right. You don’t have to like Frazier to agree that he had a right to do what he was doing without gangster interference.

    Again Conor Murphy tries to brush this off, as he did the Paul Quinn murder. He was wrong then and he’s wrong now. Murphy is not only shirking his duty as a public representative, he may be constructing yet another cover-up. It did not work in the Quinn murder case and it will not work in this incident.

  • Paul McMahon

    “why don’t you tell it to us?, instead of telling us what he isn’t? or telling us what he might be, or his father might be, or his next door neightbour might be?”

    I have to say UMH, and please excuse my slowness here, but I have absolutely no idea what you’re talking about.

  • Rory

    I am not responsible for the dodginess, nor otherwise, of David Dunseith, a man I have never met. In any case I am not so sure what ‘dodgy’ sounds like.

    My own, admittedly limited, experience on the subject rests with a fictional television character who was forever saying, “Sounds a bit dodgy to me, Tel.” Tel would respond, “You fink so, Arfur ?”. But really we all suspected that it was “Arfur himself wot wos the dodgy one”, if you get my drift, guv.

    Since you appear to be knowledgeable in this ‘dodgy’ area (like Mrs Robinson on ‘anal probing’) I was wondering if you were by any any chance related to Arthur Daley, or are you perhaps in the used motor trade yourself and so familiar with the argot?

    ‘He’s a man fighting for the rights of victims in lawless South Armagh and he needs help from everyone.’

    Personally speaking umh, I think that’s bullsh*t.

    And i agree with SDLP MLA Dominic Bradley on this one.

    He said: “Mr Frazer has said loyalist paramilitaries are welcome in his campaign as individuals, which presumably means out of uniform and leaving the guns and blast bombs at home. He admits that these loyalists have murdered people, but adds ‘thankfully not in my community’. This is an absolutely disgraceful statement which he should withdraw if he wants to have any sort of public recognition as a representative in a civilised society.

    “It is plain wrong and quite sectarian to pick and choose between good murderers and bad murderers, or good victims and bad victims. We must all have a duty of care towards each other and towards all innocent people if we are to have any sort of civilised society at all, and Mr Frazer’s remarks quite simply don’t meet that standard.”

  • LURIG

    Willie Frazer nauseates me to the core. He has a political agenda dressed up as (Protestant Only) Victims front. He always defends Loyalist death squads and mass murderers and you can see the bitterness eating away at him. The fact is that his father belonged to a notorious UDR unit with strong links to the UVF. Go away Frazer we can see what you are about!

  • Republic of Connaught

    I feel sorry for Willie Frazer. Any man that has experienced what he has couldn’t be normal. Unfortunately this is the same with so many in the North affected by the troubles through first hand experience. They are terribly scarred by the events and end up, in a sense, deformed by their losses.

    If only people affected by the violence could try to follow the lead of the true christian that was Gordon Wilson. But this is the ancient lands of Ireland and true christianity is a lot easier to preach about in Catholic and Protestant churches than to actually practice in real life.

    That’s a good post and very true. I don’t for one one minute deny that Willie Frazer and his family suffered in the past. Of course it has coloured his views and politics but we also can’t ignore his own father’s links to the UDR and UVF death squads. Frazer has also defended to the hilt Loyalist mass murderers and British State killer units. His hypocrisy is TOTALLY despised within the Nationalist/Republican community. He is one of the faces on the TV that still makes me very angry. He doesn’t give a damn about those innocent Catholics and Protestants butchered by Loyalists of whom he said “…shouldn’t have been in jail in the first place”.

  • paul kielty

    Frazier will always periodically invent some nonsense to keep his ego going. Within the next 6-12 months there will be another ‘incident’! The stout defense of him by several posters says a lot about their own warped sense of ‘terrorism’.
    Still, i would love to see ‘oor wullie’ parade through Crossmaglen in this ‘pig’, with his arm extended, giving the salute. Hilarious!
    By the way, I think the good people of south Armagh have been very tolerant of this man over recent years. If the shoe had been on the other foot and he had been parading himself around unionist areas of Belfast, he would have had his throat cut and dumped in a wheelie bin!
    I dare anyone to say that that would have not been the outcome.

  • William

    The more I read posts from Sinn Fein / IRA supporters on this blog, the more convinced I am that they are not at all totally committed to law and order and their representatives, like Murphy are not fit for Government.

    No one can forget Murphy’s denials of IRA involvement in the murder of Paul Quinn and now we have more denials with regard to Willie Frazer.

    This incident was no mere ‘figment’ of Willie Frazer’s imagination….an Independent TV production company cameraman was with Willie when he was attacked….only the cameraman’s protestations as to his role saved him from attack, but his £35k camera and other equipment was taken.

    The Police were on the scene within a minute as they were a hundred yards along the road accompanying Customs & Excise personnel who were taking samples of illicit fuel from one of the bootleg filling stations in that unlawful area of Northern Ireland.

    Why can’t those Republican /Sinn Fein / IRA folk posting here, take Willie Frazer’s allegations seriously and say, go to the Police with your complaint and if it proves false then so be it.

    But no, typical of the Fascist nature of Sinn Fein / IRA, they attack the person, not the man….

    Finally, WHERE IS MICK FEALTY, when he’s needed???? No [man not ball , moderated Ed] message on any of the hateful, spiteful garbage from the lowlifes of Fascist Republicanism.

    I trust that Mick is away from the PC, not just allowing this filth to be posted, because the recipient of it is Willie Frazer, the hate figure of terrorist South Armagh.

  • ggn

    William,

    “Willie Frazer, the hate figure of terrorist South Armagh”

    To be frank, I have never ever heard of Willie Fraser refered to seriously enough for him to be regarded as a ‘hate figure’.

    He would be generally regarded as a pitiful character in South Armagh, illustrated by Dominic Bradley’s comments.

    People generally think that he has lost an awful lot but that his support for loyalist paras takes away from his validity as a ‘victim’s campaigner’.

  • Sneakers O’Toole

    as someone from the area I have no doubt at all that there was an incident involving willie on the ‘Blaney rd, Crossmaglen. however, i do have serious doubts about Willie’s account of the incident.did some men think he was part of the ‘raid’ on diesel men? Probably. Were the IRA after him? I doubt it. Is Willie a ‘hate figure’? no, he’s a joke but it is interesting that he sees to get his information very quickly, collaboration anyone??

  • edward

    William

    To those of us with out the PIRA hate blinders on this all sounds suspiciously like a set up, How convenient that a mob of 20 supposed republican kidnappers can apear and disapear with in seconds. How would this supposed well organized mob of 20 not be able to pull 1 man from a car with the door already open? perhaps because it was all for show for the equally convenient documentary camera man, who by the way doesnt seem to back wee willy’s fantasy story? How does a supposed organized band of kidnappers not know the coppers are in the neighbourhood?

    To me it sounds like a pantomime dreamed up for the express purpose of giving the camera man a convenient story about the nasty republicans out to get wee willy.

    If this was done by the provo’s they have let their standards slip beyond recognition

  • cut the bull

    willie needs a big hug and some body who’s willing to listen to him.
    If the Brit or Irish governments or both in a joint venture could give him a tv show and make republicans participate in it and listen to and face questioning from willie,with a threat of no further concessions should they refuse. That may make him happy.

    I’m surprised willie embarked on such a dangerous mission of daring do with out the safety of his saracen.
    This is a wee song posted on an earlier thread in which willie was advertising saracen tours of south armagh.

    Chorus
    Armoured cars and tanks and guns
    We take pounds, euros and dollars no punts
    You’ll have to stand watch your behind
    The seats are made of barbed Wire

    Through the little roads of bandit country
    In the dark of early morn
    A Saracen will fly around bends
    Willie wildly beeping its horn.

    Heedless of the sheep and cattle
    Or the councils newly planted flower beds
    Beating the accelerator while helpless tourists
    Feel the blood flow to their heads

    Chorus

    Not for them insurance for an injury
    Or indeed a claim at all
    Speeding in a Saracen means you’re guilty
    So you’re guilty one and all

    Round the world rumours will echo
    Brits are invading the south again
    England’s name and the Good Friday agreement is sullied
    In the eyes of honest men

    Chorus

    Proudly stand with city men and farmers
    Firmly stand behind our men
    We will have them free to help us
    Build a Nation once again

    On the people stand together
    Proudly firmly on your way
    Never fear, and never falter
    Till that big Saracen goes away.

    All designed to try and boost Jim Allister and the idea that there is still a serious IRA campaign on the wage, amatuer juvenille stuff and quite frankly pathetic. The physical war is over but the political war has only just begun and the sooner Jim and Willie get with it the better

  • blinding

    perhaps Willie and Jim do not believe that they can win the political contest

  • William

    Republicans of the Sinn Fein / IRA ilk are still in hate mode and not a word of ‘let the Police deal with this matter’….all spiteful, hate-filled words against Willie Frazer. Libellous remarks about him and dangerous comments that call into question the committment of Sinn Fein / IRA posters to this blog to the concept of adherence to Law & Order and the acceptance of Policing and Justice.

    No doubt some of the posters above are from South Armagh and have been dragged up through their childhood to hate Police and everything British, so I will concede that it is difficult for them to change. Difficult as in ‘trying to teach an old dog new tricks’

    So to those hatemongers, I say,….someday you will have to meet your Maker…that is the day you’ll be judged and I’ve no doubt, many, if not all of you will be directed southwards [your traditional route] although the signpost will show ‘Hell’ rather than Dublin.

  • William

    To ‘Just asking’…..no doubt a fully paid up Sinn Fein / IRA Member.

    You said….’The physical war is over but the political war has only just begun….’

    Isn’t that what Frankie Gallagher of the URPG said a couple of weeks ago about the UDA and he got pilloried in the media….going back to war…political or the traditional variety you lot were so fond of?

    See you in hell then….

    “All spiteful, hate-filled words against Willie Frazer. Libellous remarks about him”

    Can only speak for myself here William but please domonstrate where my comments regading Willie are
    spiteful hate filled and libellous.

    “No doubt some of the posters above are from South Armagh and have been dragged up through their childhood to hate Police and everything British”

    Surely you’re not suggesting that the concept of policing is synonomous with the concept of being British Willie? That’ll come as a surprise to the rule of law in all non-British states internationlly, [not to mention that bastion of Britishness, loyalist paramilitarism].

    “Someday you will have to meet your Maker…that is the day you’ll be judged and I’ve no doubt, many, if not all of you will be directed southwards”

    That may be true William and if such a being exists people like me will be judged on his/her/its terms – as will people such as you and Willie Frazer.

  • William

    Paul McMahon….I can’t speak for anyone other than myself, but I’m happy that my Maker will judge me kindly as all I’ve ever done is help people, both in my private and professional life….

    I have never supported, either by word or deed, nor vote any terrorist related organisation nor have I ever thrown a stone in anger throughout all the years of the so-called ‘war’.

    Can you and many of the hate-mongers on this blog say the same ????

  • Paul McMahon

    Aye I can Willie.

    If such a supreme entity exists I’ll go to meet him/her/it with a clear conscience.

    And now that I’ve answered your question would you mind answering the two I asked you at 8.11?

    “It would seem Conor Murphy is trying to make Frazer out to be a subject of ridicule”

    Frazer doesn’t need any assistance to be ridiculous – he already is and has been for years.

    All his own work.

    Spare us the homily about Frazer. He stated in public that the “loyalist” terrorists realeased under the GFA should never have been locked up in the first place.

    Do you agree with this sentiment? If so, don’t talk down to me or anyone else about morality.

    If you don’t agree with it, why are you on here defending Frazer? It’s an unambiguous statement and he has, to my knowledge, never retracted it.

    If you have evidence to the contrary, provide it.

    If a relative of Catholic victims of “loyalist” terrorism made a similar statement about republican prisoners, you would be screaming about it.

    Anti-terrorist campaigner Willy Frazer speaks on Billy Wright during an interview with Susan Mckay for her book ‘Northern Protestants – An Unsettled People’ (Pg. 195):

    “I had a lot of time for Billy. He called a spade a spade.”

    (This is also the same book in which he is quoted as saying to McKay that “if a Paki came over here from India and shot dead a Provo, I’d shake his hand.”)

    Here the anti-terrorist campaigner speaks to the Sunday World about Dublin/Monaghan bomber and convicted UVF quartermaster James Mitchell after attending his funeral:

    “James was a good man.”

    In an interview given to the Irish Examiner in the run-up to the Love Ulster march in Dublin in 2006 professional mourner Willie admits that the march far from being a simple parade in memory of victims of violence was instead a cynical political propaganda message which used the dead to get its anti-Agreement message across. Said Willie:

    `Broadly, we think there is too much interference in the affairs of the North by the Irish government,” said William Frazer, the march organizer, in a telephone interview from Armagh. “We are bringing that message down south.”

    It must also be kept in mind that Frazer was refused a personal protection weapon because of his links with loyalist terrorists.

    Apparently loyalist paramilitaries tried to murder Conor Murphy over the weekend (though the BBC has relegated it to a ‘threat’). It seems to me more than a tad coincidental that Frazer reports this attempted abduction and then a couple of days later the PSNI informs one of the people who Frazer has made responsible for the abduction bid – i.e. the Minister of Regional Development – that the Orange Vounteers have tried to murder him.

    HMM I am suddenly if William and ole willy share more than a first name like maybe a last name? Sock puppetry at its worst?

    “[i]It seems to me more than a tad coincidental that Frazer reports this attempted abduction and then a couple of days later the PSNI informs one of the people who Frazer has made responsible for the abduction bid – i.e. the Minister of Regional Development – that the Orange Vounteers have tried to murder him.”[/i]

    In what way do you think it’s coincidental, picador?

    “[i]who Frazer has [b]made responsible for the abduction bid[/b] – i.e. the Minister of Regional Development”[/i]

    I must have missed that. Where did Frazer make Conor Murphy responsible for the abduction?
