By now, many of you will have heard of the demonstration organised by right-wing nutjobs the North-West Infidels (NWI) this Saturday in Liverpool. These thugs are a splinter group from the English Defence League (EDL), ironically, formed by second-generation Irishman Stephen Lennon (alias 'Tommy Robinson')
They proclaim to be conducting an anti-IRA march in Liverpool this Saturday, yet the event they are disrupting is actually a rally for "Working Class Unity Against Racism & Fascism". The words "Irish", "Ireland", "Catholic", "Republican", "Sinn Fein" or "IRA" are never used.
This is simply an excuse for moronic thugs to vent their spleens against their white Celtic neighbours, instead of members of the Asian community, whom they so often attack. They claim that "anti-British feeling is projected... by immigrant families from the Republic of Ireland"
They also claim, "these people are much like the Islamics (sic), they take take take with one hand and abuse their host nation with the other"(!)
This would all be laughable, considering the contribution hard-working Irish immigrants made to Liverpool and Britain as a whole, and the fact that the majority of the IRA who wreaked havoc on Britain were from Northern Ireland, not the Republic. However, these knuckle-draggers are capable of causing serious damage.
They do not have an official website, but they do have a facebook page.
They could do with being told where they can shove their "Loyalist" march.
Those invovled in the march are no worse than the tens of thousands of Irish people who have spent the past week posting vile and disgusting comments about the people and country of Mauritius.
Should I get the popcorn?
Probably much the same people who trashed Lansdowne Rd in 1995
It's a positive story. We're doing something right if a bunch of skangers like that don't like us. March on lads.
Any excuse for a march. Their type are obsessed with it.
are you remotely close to being right in the head
Maybe they're the minority of Liverpudlians that are english and feel frustrated that it feels more like Ireland than england. Can't even shout for their national team!
Agreed. And no doubt those same people who posted those comments about Mauritius will be going on about how disgraceful this is.
Yes, I think that having an anti-Irish march is disgraceful, but so is judging the whole of Mauritius over the actions of a few Mauritiuns.
A wee look on Google links this group more to the National Front, if any group at all. They are not E.D.L. backed in any way, the E.D.L. dislike the N.F. and will expel and N.F. members from their ranks if discovered.
I don't see the big deal here to be honest. If anything, they are standing up for the right minded Irish people who can't stand the IRA in any form who are the vast majority of Irish people. So I would say well done to them in that regard.
