MSNBC’s take on The Irish

Given that it’s St Patrick’s Day, MSNBC have clearly decided to lead with a story about the oul’ Sod- and it doesn’t paint a pretty picture. Under the banner headline ‘For many young Irish, first taste of hard times,‘ the most visited news website in the United States leads with a story which outlines the bleak economic vista facing the once roaring Celtic Tiger. Scroll further down the story and you’ll see a prominent link to a story about the arrests of nine people over last week’s killings in the North and a larger Video-link to an NBC Nightly News story about the reactions to the killings.

    Who really wants to persuade those with the same value system as the unionists and the British that they’re just like the Irish. Isn’t it just a con perpetrated by our shallow soldiers in Sinn Fein on the shallow and superficial of the USA?

    Another con is the illegal hijacking of my website in order to send a signal to me of the (P)IRA’s intent to be the law in this sphere. But it shows that they’re getting nervous and that we have them on the ropes.

  • I’m sure if any of our Irish American friends would like to comment on the sheer nastiness of Northern politics that led to our dissident friends expressing themselves during the week.

    That is of course as long as the violence of the past week was not ordered by Gerry Adams in order to protect himself after the Bishop of Derry wrote to me to indicate that he was asking a professional theologian to look into my work, God is a Woman…, and I contacted many people in the media. God is a Woman… is based on my 1986 experience when I discovered that Gerry Adams and Ian Paisley’s names come out at 666 and this was and is the mainstay of my website which was “forbidden” today for several hours.

    The long and short of it is that I got confirmation from the Bishop on Monday, emailed the Press on Wednesday, and when one Irish daily newspaper was about to publish on Friday, but didn’t for some reason, and the shooting gaining massive sympathy for Sinn Fein and Gerry Adams in particular happens the following Saturday night.

    John, you are a legend.

  • Earnan

    If i click on one more article to see a post of yours talking about Gerry Adams connection to 666 I will be annoyed.

    WHy is he still allowed to spam this site?

  • Fuck you Earnan you smug faced twat. Gerry Adams and Ian Paisley are 666 and I am the Lamb of Goodness.

    Please, please visit my website which Sinn Féin / IRA hacked into earlier today so that I could complain about so that I could then attract more hits to it. Please.

    John:

    I’m not clicking your link. I made that mistake once! The only professionals reading your web site are psychiatrists looking for good case study.

    Chris:

    Regarding MSNBCs ‘For many young Irish, first taste of hard times’ story, we don’t have to go that far back to find young people experiencing hard times. At age 24 in 1991 the job market in NI was particularly bleak for myself and most of my graduating class.

    And I not sure what parallel you are trying to draw with the arrest story, my only observation is the the MSM in the USA tend to report political stories about NI in very simple terms. I’m guessing the reason being that not everyone is fascinated about NI.

  • The long and short of it is that I got confirmation from the Bishop on Monday, emailed the Press on Wednesday, and when one Irish daily newspaper was about to publish on Friday, but didn’t for some reason, and the shooting gaining massive sympathy for Sinn Fein and Gerry Adams in particular happens the following Saturday night.

    I am the biggest threat to the Provisional movement’s machine since sliced bread. Bow down before me NOW or I will phone my dad (God) who will turn your name into 666

    FFS John, I nearly fell off the chair laughing at that one. You just made my day. The Lamb of Goodness using bad language and calling people rude names. Classic.

  • Posts 5 and 7 are not mine.

    Just look at the mockery that barely disguises the anger of these republuicans, who are acting under instructions from the movement to discredit me.

    They seriously believe that they are not supping with the devil with a very short spoon.
