Old IRA not in my name

'm sick of these people being treated as heroes and not for what they are, worthless thugs.

Where should I start? How about the Dunmanway killings? 13 INNOCENT protestants shot to death by Irish patriots in Cork 1922 three of whom the bodies were never found.

How about the Altnaveigh massacre? 7 innocent protestants killed by the heroes of the IRA the attack was carried out and ordered by Frank Aiken who later went on to become a longstanding highly respected Fianna Fail TD.

How about district inspector Hunt of the RIC an Irishman who was shot dead in the square at Thurles on June 23rd by armed men. He was on duty at Thurles races. He was shot twice in the back. A twelve year old boy was wounded in the kneecap. NOT IN MY NAME!

And when the media condemned Michael Collins reign of terror as 'murder most foul', how did Collins react? He dispatched his men to the offices of the Irish Independent(the newspaper that called the volunteers of the Rising insane criminals) where they held the editor at gun-point, dismantled the entire printing machinery and destroyed it.

I could go on forever but I'll leave it at that as I don't want to make this thread too long but if you're still not satisfied feel free to ask me about these "heroes"

Why would this thread be locked? This isn't North Korea. Anymore.
