Why, they told me he was just a Protester for Civil Rights, the victim of Hatred of the H-Blocks and Nasty Ol' England.

Anybody know how he landed his ass into prison to begin with?

Europeans eat bullshit terrorist=just a protester stories for breakfast.

The only IRA ppl know of today, is the Individual Retirement Account.

Sands was forgotten a long time ago.

Tell me the answer. Bobby Sands is quite a hero in the Republic.

I know the IRA was/is involved with drug dealing and various kinds of organized crime, in theory as a way of funding the cause, but I didn't hear about Bobby Sands' involvement.

He plotted to blow up a furniture factory.
He obtained an explosive device.
He blew up the furniture factory (many men lost their jobs because of it, inc. innocent Catholics)
He was caught by police fleeing the scene.
He resisted arrest.
He possessed an illegal firearm
His crew shot at the police.

Basically, he committed a terrorist act against civilians, resisted the authorities, and thus was a terrorist.

But the EuroLeft and many in the Republic act like he was an innocent man who went on hunger strike after being arrested by the RUC (the reason is almost always glossed over and inferred he was just a protester)

And Shinners (Sein Fein)hate Americans almost as much as they hate Scots & English, despite the aid they got from irish-Americans, because they regard America as an evil colonialist enterprise and they are a Hard Left organization. Check out "Bernadette Devlin", who was given the key of the city of Chicago by Mayor Lindsay for her role in the Battle of the Bogside, and then decided she'd give it to the Black Panthers who were "Oppressed by Irish-Americans"

This is widely known as the dirty secret of the Boston area.

When I was an infant, there were numerous Irish pubs around town, where one could discreetly deposit cash in canisters which would be sent off to the IRA. I believe the city of Boston was the greatest sponsor of terrorism, back in those days. It's not talked about anymore but it did happen.

I'm glad I'd never visited Ireland, as I know ppl who were affected by those IRA bombings in Britain.

Yes, the Left-Islamist Alliance does a great job of whitewashing murderous events like the Park Bombings, the Birmingham Pub Bombings, and especially the Disappeared, where the PIRA used terror to prevent wavering Catholics in the 70s from accepting any Agreement that addressed all their actual concerns.

Dianne Abbot,Jezza's BBF and (I think) former Girlfriend, refusing to walk back Pro-IRA comments, including "every defeat of the British state is a victory for all of us":

Sinn Fein/PIRA is an enthusastic part of the World Hard Left-Islamist Alliance against Western Democracy.

Eamonn McCann, a Troubles "Civil Rights Activist on the "Republican" Side, took over a Raytheon plant in 2006.

Well yes, otherwise, how could Catholics, Protestants, and Orthodox get along in places like Boston (along with practically everywhere else in America), if there were constant sectarian violence against one another?

Seriously, Whitey Bulger was the last Irish-Catholic-American thug, who thought he could run his own little religious-ethnic cul-de-sac in Boston, only to become the city's most reviled criminal. If Bulger's memory could be deposed than so can jerkweeds like Sinn Fein, along with his clones.

What the IRA wants is a through back to those counter-reformation times in the 17th century, In essence, they have the same moral compass as our Islamist friends in the middle east.

The IRA is hardly any worse than the Northern Irish police, who for decades targeted and murdered any Catholic who even seemed likely to cause trouble.

And when the police are murdering civilians without trial, who are you going to go to?

The whole story is one of "I ain't gonna agree to be a minority in your country tomorrow, when I'm the majority in my own country today. Rangers FC forever." vs. "when we unify as one island, I would be a member of the majority and you my minority. First thing is, cancel Ranger Game broadcasts on all television. Heh heh heh."

The RUC never disappeared Catholics, at least until the 70s. More than half a dozen RUC were killed in IRA cross-border raids 1950-1960s, long before 1969.
On the other hand, RUC wasn't unbiased, they were like the San Jose police at the Trump Rally, they definitely let a few Orangemen through Rocks a bit more often before putting a stop to it than they would Catholics.

As having some Irish ancestry and not being an a-hole, I abhor the whole Troubles. BUT, international leftism definitely played a role in the Troubles. The reaction was mostly that of a desperate majority thinking the Capital was going to sell them out (as American Trump voters, I think we can imagine that).

The solution is either autonomous region of Ireland. BUT, there has to be a referendum. The IRA/Sinn Fein has always tried to get lazy London just to sign it away and/or abandon the Ulster-Scots, and that can't be, it has to be a referendum like Scotland or Brexit.

Can't they just transport them all back to the 1600's and let them battle it out with light sabers?
