Whatever he was in life, let him be in death.

His death reminded me of Loyalists Against Democracy (LAD) on fb and twitter, they were hilarious winding him up and posting his inane ramblings. Wonder why they stopped posting anything in the last year...

Strange that the Repulicans show no class on the death of a person. Infact it's not strange at all.
When the sainted Martin died he was plauded by Unionists even though he was a mass murderer.
Class can't be bought.

Billy Wright was another orange supremacist who played club football up to minor level in south Armagh.
Think they both played for Whitecross (open to correction)

No class at all, but there does seem to be quite a few hard-line Republicans on here, more than one would expect given their minority view.

When Adams dies many thousands North & South would be sorely tempted to rejoice, but hopefully most of us won't, even though he's a nasty piece of work to most of us (outside Republican circles).

That is some load of horse ****e. He got the usual PR spiel from official loyalism and the same as Frazer is getting from regular loyalists on the street.

Throwing missiles and screaming abuse at small children walking to school is the kind of classiness to be proud of.

I'm sorry for his family and I'm not entirely incognizant of the ways in which people come through these things but plenty of other people were victims without ending up as poisonous bigots.


I'll save my wishes for people like Hume and Cooper. People who retained their humanity and reason even in the inferno of Northern Ireland.

I’ve seen plenty of Republicans on social media use compassionate language and condemn those mocking Frazer’s death. It’s petty and juvenile, although let’s not pretend Frazer didn’t operate at the same level.

People of republican/nationalist/Irish Catholic backgrounds are forgiving of David Ervine despite his being involved with loyalist paramilitarism. Strange that...

I am not going to go dancing on Frazer's grave but I'm certainly not going to resort to the bizarre attempts to find good in him like on this thread just because he died.

There are republicans (or maybe they're not republicans) being crass here - but also those who are being very respectful (more than necessary imo). That person stirring sh1t of course doesn't acknowledge them. And there were obviously unionists and loyalists "good riddancing" McGuinness. Again though, gotta leave those out of the agenda.

And of course there will be jeering when Adams dies, ffs.

BS when Seamus McGrane died recently loyalists were salivating online even Rangers fans in Scotland spewing bile....

And it was even worse when Martin McElkerney killed himself in May. It was like Christmas in PUL circles. Its actually a very regular thing from PUL community.

As Jake O'Kane once described him: "A haircut from the 1960s and a brain from the 1690s"

He will be missed.
