The British National Party have recently launched an Irish campaign to “keep Ireland Irish.” :( As if we don’t have enough of that sort of rubbish over here already. According to their website Ireland is now filling up with “Third World immigrants/asylum seekers” yes those are there terms, because obviously none of the non-Irish looking(??) people could possibly have jobs could they? Like nurses and doctors??? Or working in your local shop or take-away?
Then again how much sense can you expect from a group that alters the 1916 proclamation in order to fit into their anti-immigration, pro-monoculturalism values?
Never mind that the vast majority of Irish people in 1916 were opposed to the rising until after the executions of its leaders? And is it just me, or is there something ironic about a group which prides itself as being British using the rhetoric of those who were almost rabidly anti-Britain?
I was listening to the BNP’s Chairman on Today fm this morning, and he described getting a call from an Irish man coming out of the Sinn Féin office in Parnell St., and giving out because he couldn’t see another white face. Now I wonder do Sinn Fein know that their supporters are looking for help from an organisation, which in another site, (in NI) says that is knows that “We all know how Sinn Fein/IRA bomb, murder, destroy and maim. And now during the so-called peace process we all know how they continue to rearm, gather intelligence, train terrorists and peddle their drugs.”
Now, I regularly go to the cinema on Parnell St., right by that Sinn Féin office and yes, there generally is a non-white population, but I also work in a hospital library and can see that a huge proportion of employees are also non-white. We need them, just as much as they need our money.
Is it just me, or is the world a very very strange place??
