GERRY ADAMS ORDERS A CURRY FOR GREGORY







Like the Devil in the above video,  Britain has instigated division all over the world on the basis of religion or ethnic background, to divide and conquer. The following article explains how they use the Orange Order in Ireland both as tool of division and pretext for occupation. The libertaion struggle in Ireland is not about religion, it is about freedom. Here is the oath every Orangeman signs up to when he joins. “He should strenuously oppose the fatal errors and doctrines of the Church of Rome, and scrupulously avoid countenancing by his presence or otherwise any act or ceremony of Popish worship, he should, by all lawful means, resist the ascendancy of that Church, its encroachments, and the extension of its power.”

The F-- the Pope Bands who take part in Orange marches sing a song of then outside Catholic Churches, called “We are the Billy Boys,” the first verse goes like this:

Hello! Hello! We are the Billy Boys
Hello! Hello! You'll know us by our noise
We're up to our necks in Fenian blood
Surrender or you'll die.



Since the early nineteenth century, Orangemen are involved in violent conflict with Irish Catholics. One instance, included the murder of a Catholic priest and several members of the congregation of Dumreilly on 25 May 1816. A crowd of Orangemen with guns marched into the church and started shooting the congregation. On 19 July 1823 the Unlawful Oaths Bill, banned all oath societies in Ireland, including the Orange Order, which was dissolved, but reconstituted. In 1825 a bill banning unlawful associations,compelled the Orangemen once more to dissolve their association.

 In 1836 t
he Orange Order supported a plot by Ernest Augustus, Duke of Cumberland and Imperial Grand Master of the Orange Order, to take the throne of England, to replace Queen Victoria. The plot was revealed the House of Commons, after which,a motion called upon King William IV, to disband the Orange Order. Under pressure from the King, the Duke of Cumberland was forced to dissolve all Orange lodges.

In 1845 the ban was lifted, but at their notorious Battle of Dolly's Brae the Orangemen again slaughtered Catholics, which again led to a ban on Orange marches, which remained in place for generations. Until the late 19th century, the Order Order was in permanent decline. However, it was again revived by the absentee English landlords in Ireland, to spread Protestant opposition, to the Irish nationalist mobilization of the Irish Land League and subsequently to Irish Home Rule. 


The Orange Order, with British incitement became heavily involved in opposition to the Liberal 
Gladstone's first Irish Home Rule Bill 1886, and was instrumental in creating the Ulster Unionist Party (UUP), a forerunner of the more extreme DUP of today. They organized Protestant opposition to Irish self-government in the Protestant-dominated six counties, which is known today as British Occupied Ireland, or what the British call Northern Ireland.

In 1912, the Third Home Rule Bill was introduced in the British House of Commoners, but its introduction was delayed until 1914, to give the Orange Order more time to organize, in conjunction with the British Conservative Party, who were inflexible in opposing the Bill. The Order helped organize the 1912 Ulster Covenant, which was a pledge to oppose Home Rule and was signed by several hundred thousand people. In 1911 the Orange Order began arming themselves, with the help of the British, who trained them as a militia, called the Ulster Volunteers. There was almost a complete overlap between all Orange Lodges and sectarian UVF killer units. The British armed them with a large shipment of rifles, under the cover of being imported from Germany, in what became known as the Larne gun-running.

Eventually the Fourth Home Rule Act was passed, as the Government of Ireland Act 1920, with the six north eastern counties of Ulster, becoming, what the British called Northern Ireland. This self-governing entity, was termed by leading Orangemen, as a Protestant Government for a Protestant people within Britain, where Catholics were to suffer greatly.

The Orange Order, had a central place in the new state of Northern Ireland. From 1921 to 1969, every Prime Minister was an Orangeman and member of the Ulster Unionist Party (UUP). James Craig, the first Prime Minister of Occupied Ireland, maintained that his statelet was in effect Protestant and the symbol of its ruling forces was the Orange Order. In 1932, Prime Minister Craig stated that "ours is a Protestant government and I am an Orangeman". Two years later he stated: "I have always said that I am an Orangeman first and a politician and a member of this parliament afterwards…all I boast, is that we have a Protestant Parliament and a Protestant State".

After the outbreak of "The Troubles" in 1969, the Grand Orange Lodge of Ireland, encouraged Orangemen to join the RUC and the British Army's (UDR). The response was strong, with over 300 armed Orangemen killed during the conflict, all of them members of British armed forces. 
Other 
Orangemen joined loyalist paramilitaries, who murdered numerous Catholics, on a sectarian basis. During the conflict, the Order had a duplicitous relationship with loyalist paramilitaries, the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP), with elements of the Orange Order, urging its members to join these organisations. 

This is still the status of the Orange Order of today. The estimated membership of the Orange Order is around 34,000. This dictates what remains of the failed Irish Peace Process and the are the primary cause of it's failure. It is hardcore sectarianism and like Gregory Campbell, it is a rabid group of prejudice and bigotry, with close links to white supremacist groups, such as the Ku Klux Klan, Nazi groups in Britain and the fascist Blueshirts in the south of Ireland.There will be no peace in Ireland while the British Government secretly enables them and sponsors their sectarian state to the tune of 10 billion pounds annually.

GERRY ADAMS GETS DOWN & DIRTY IN IRISH PEACE PROCESS




27 NOVEMBER 2014 Belfast, Ireland                    

Provisional Sinn Fein MP Michelle Gildernew ,has described today, the DUP's Gregory Campbell as "a bollocks" after her party leader Gerry Adams, also talked about "breaking the bastards", while responding to an earlier debate on the Irish language, in which Unionist DUP MP Gregory Campbelle said "curry my yogurt can coca coalyer"sounds similar to the Irish phrase, 'go raibh maith agat, Ceann Comhairle' which means approximately, thank you chairperson.

Earlier this week, negotiations commenced with the prospect of reviving the Irish Peace Process, which are chaired by a US Envoy from John Kerry's office. If these exchanges this week, are anything to go by, it appears that the Irish Peace Process, is definitely finished, with the the only prospect for peace, now being a Federal solution for the island, with an internal settlement proving impossible.

SOULLESS WASTELAND OF CORPORATE IRELAND




“Tír gan teanga, tír gan anam. A country without a language is a country without a soul.”
Pádraig Pearse

James Joyce like Samuel Beckett fled to Paris and famously said: 'Ireland, Island of Saints and Sages', that "No self-respecting person wants to stay in Ireland. Instead he will run from it, as if from a country that has been subjected to a visitation by an angry Jove." 


"Your music should be abou' where you're from an' the sort o' people yeh come from.—Say it once, say it loud, I'm black an' I'm proud ...—The Irish are the niggers of Europe, lads." —Roddy Doyle, The Commitments. There are also claims that Malcolm X said, "The Irish are the blacks of Europe !" but he was talking about the Irish genetic connection to the Moors, by way of Spain. However the analogy is valid. The last large numbers of white people to be sold into slavery, were the Irish with 150,000 sold back in the 1600s, when English pirates sold Irish slaves, regarding them as another species.

Events around the global banking crisis of 2008 and more particularly how it was mishandled in Ireland, have again clarified, that the Irish working class are being treated like the blacks of Europe. Currently Ireland is fourth globally in suicide rates for males age 18-24, according to a 2014 report, with unemployment rates comparable to black ghettos in the States. With the fall-out from the Irish bailout of the banking bondholders, resulting austerity and recession, bringing the Irish economy and living conditions below dozens of 'third world countries, it is another shock to the system. Ireland's current sense of gloom permeates the Irish air and patterns of current behaviour.

The Irish working class 'nigger' status is not just a fact abroad but it is still a reality on their own Island. It is crystal clear for centuries in the north of the island, with their sectarian treatment by the Orange Order culture, as crystallized in exchanges in the last few days, between the racist Gregory Campbell and Gerry Adams, it also true in the south, where the "West Brit Elite" still control society. Allied to a native gombeen class of neo-fascists in Fine Gael, along with colluding Labour careerists. The mafianomics of the corporate bankers and their sponsored native politicians, are denuding Ireland of it's native resources and people, with a ruthlessness, comparable to deforestation. Their instruction manual is the "The Art of War," as they adopt a scorched earth policy, leaving an Irish wasteland that is soulless.

Pope urges a “lonely” “self-absorbed” Europe to recover its soul


2014-11-26 Vatican Radio

(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis called on a “haggard” and “lonely” Europe to recover its role as a world protagonist, its identity as a defender of the transcendent dignity of man, the poor, the migrant, the persecuted, the old and the young, to recover its soul: Christianity.
Emer McCarthy reports: 
In a lengthy address– the first of two on his one day visit to the heart of Europe –  he told members of the European Parliament in Strasbourg that a two-thousand-year-old history links Europe and Christianity, “not free of conflicts or errors, but driven by the desire to work for the good of all”. This “is our present and our future.  It is our identity”, he said
The Pope also urged Europe’s 500 million citizens to see the Union’s problems – economic stagnation, unemployment, immigration, rising poverty levels and a growing polarization -  as a “force for unity” to overcome fears and mutual mistrust.
“Dignity” he said was the pivotal concept in the process of rebuilding which followed the Second World War and led to the European project. Today it remains central to the commitment of the European Union. But Pope Francis warned, often the concept of human rights is misunderstood and misused. 
He pointed to tendency to uphold the rights of the individual, “without regard for the fact that each human being is part of a social context wherein his or her rights and duties are bound up with those of others and with the common good of society itself”.         
Transcendent human dignity – the Pope continued - means regarding human beings not as absolutes, but as beings in relation.  He spoke of a Europe rampant with the disease of loneliness a direct result of the trend towards individualism. He said the economic crisis has worsened this pervasive loneliness and nourished a growing mistrust in people towards institutions considered aloof and bureaucratic. 
The Pope spoke of the unsustainable opulence of selfish lifestyles amid indifference to the poorest of the poor, where technical and economic questions dominate political debate, to the detriment of genuine concern for human beings.
This – the Pope noted –reduces human life to being a “cog in a machine” which, if no longer useful, can be “discarded with few qualms, as in the case of the terminally ill, the elderly who are abandoned and uncared for, and children who are killed in the womb”. This – Pope Francis said quoting Benedict XVI - is the great mistake made “when technology is allowed to take over”; the result is a confusion between ends and means”.
The future of Europe – added Pope Francis - depends on the recovery of the vital connection between openness to God and the practical and concrete ability to confront situations and problems.
The Pope said Christianity is not a threat to secular Europe but rather an enrichment. He said religions can help Europe counter “many forms of extremism” spreading today that are often “a result of the great vacuum of ideals which we are currently witnessing in the West”.
Here he decried the “shameful and complicit silence” of many while religious minorities are being “evicted from their homes and native lands, sold as slaves, killed, beheaded, crucified or burned alive”.
Pope Francis went on to observe that the motto of the European Union isUnited in Diversity, but unity, does not mean uniformity. Keeping democracy alive in Europe means avoiding the many globalizing tendencies to dilute reality.
Keeping democracies alive is a challenge in the present historic moment, he continued, but  it must not be allowed to collapse under the pressure of multinational interests which are not universal. It means nurturing the gifts of each man and woman; investing in families, the fundamental cell and most precious element of any society; in educational institutes;  in young people today who are asking for a suitable and complete education to help them to look to the future with hope instead of disenchantment. 
In areas such as the ecology Europe has always been in the vanguard, the Pope said, while noting that today “millions of people around the world are dying of hunger while tons of food are discarded each day from our tables”. 
He also spoke of the need to promote policies that create employment, but above all “restore dignity to labour by ensuring proper working conditions” while avoiding the exploitation of workers and ensuring “their ability to create a family and educate their children”.
On the issue of migration Pope Francis called for a united response decrying the lack of a coordinated EU wide effort to adopt policies that assist migrants in their countries of origin and that promote a just and realistic integration: “We cannot allow the Mediterranean to become a vast cemetery!” he decried to lengthy applause.
Pope Francis concluded: “The time has come for us to abandon the idea of a Europe which is fearful and self-absorbed, in order to revive and encourage a Europe of leadership, a repository of science, art, music, human values and faith as well.  A Europe which contemplates the heavens and pursues lofty ideals.  A Europe which cares for, defends and protects man, every man and woman.  A Europe which bestrides the earth surely and securely, a precious point of reference for all humanity!

GERRY ADAMS COMES OUT AS GREGORY GETS HIS GOAT UP




MICHELLE SMYTH – 25 NOVEMBER 2014 

Sinn Fein president Gerry Adams has ignited another war of words after describing unionists as b******s last night at a public meeting.

 Mr Adams spoke about “bigotry” in unionism and said: “The point is to break these b******s... break them with equality.”

He also claimed that unionists were “scundered” by people like DUP MP Gregory Campbell. He was asked by a member of the audience about Sinn Fein’s relationship with the DUP in light of recent events, including the controversial comments made by Mr Campbell about the party’s use of the Irish language.

Mr Adams, who is now a TD for Louth, replied that when he returns to visit Belfast some nationalists and republicans would ask him to explain the point of working with the DUP.

He added: "There are people who don't want the nonsense that Gregory Campbell spouts... the bigotry."

Mr Adams said: "But what's the point? The point is to actually break these b******s - that's the point. And what's going to break them is equality. That's what's going to break them - equality. Who could be afraid of equality? Who could be afraid of treating somebody the way you want to be treated. That's what we need to keep the focus on - that's the Trojan horse of the entire republican strategy."

Mr Adams made his comments in Enniskillen, a venue that angered unionists further because of its history of the Remembrance Day IRA bombing.

The remarks came after Gregory Campbell infuriated republicans with remarks he made at a party conference at the weekend.

Mr Campbell also remarked that the DUP will be treating Sinn Fein's "wish list" like toilet paper.

Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness described those remarks as "absolutely appalling".

Mr Campbell said last night he was not surprised when the Belfast Telegraph informed him of what Mr Adams had said.

"The Sinn Fein mask has definitely slipped," he said.

"People will now be able to see their true colours. To those who know and understand Gerry Adams' background this may not come as a surprise.

"Sinn Fein has for a long time done a sterling job at keeping their true feelings under wraps but now people will be able to see them completely clearly for what they are. All of this is in response to a humorous anecdote."


Enterprise Minister and Fermanagh and South Tyrone MLA Arlene Foster said: "Respect is a two-way street. The hyperbole from republicans over recent days has been exposed as hypocrisy.

"Republicans use the Irish language as a weapon and tonight Gerry Adams confirms that they view equality as another weapon to attack unionists, or "these b******s" as he would term us.

"Will Sinn Fein now unleash a tirade of outrage against their party president or will they once again stand behind him as they have over his denial of IRA membership, his involvement in Jean McConville's murder or the cover-up of sexual abuse.

"On Saturday John O'Dowd told us that if any Sinn Fein member was disrespectful to someone's culture they would be expelled by Martin McGuinness.

"Gerry Adams has been disrespectful to an entire community. We await details of the disciplinary hearing."

Ulster Unionist leader, Mike Nesbitt MLA said Mr Adams' remarks are "stunning in their arrogance and hatred. On a day I began by criticising the DUP's Gregory Campbell for his gratuitous insult to those who cherish the Irish language, I despair that I have to end it by challenging Gerry Adams to clarify why he believes equality is no more than a trick to lure unionists into some sort of trap".

Mr Adams was joined at the meeting by Michelle Gildernew MP and Pearse Doherty.

UUP Fermanagh and south Tyrone MLA Tom Elliot said: "It is almost beyond belief that the president of a political party would use this type of language. It says a lot about his character and about Sinn Fein. It is insulting wherever remarks like this are made but even more so that this was said in Enniskillen where the poppy day bombing took place and where many people have suffered."
ADRIAN RUTHERFORD – 24 NOVEMBER 2014


The DUP's Gregory Campbell has said he will not be 'dictated to or deflected by terrorists' after receiving a death threat following comments he made about the Irish language.

It comes after the DUP MP reiterated comments about the Irish language during his party's annual conference at the weekend.

Mr Campbell sparked fury last month when he mocked Irish during a Stormont debate.

He said: "Curry my yoghurt can coca coalyer" - an apparent reference to the Irish phrase "go raibh maith agat, Ceann Comhairle" - thank you, Mr Speaker.

Police have now warned him of a threat to his life.

Responding, he said he would "not I will not be apologising for, or deviating from doing the right thing".

"This is not the first time that my life has been put under threat by republicans, and the challenge now is whether those who supported the threats in the past will condemn those who do it now. If they do, it is an indication that we have indeed moved on," he said.

"I will not be dictated to or deflected by terrorists. I took the opportunity today at Question Time, to reiterate my determination. Exposing those politicising the Irish language, as well as those making unrealistic political demands at the talks table is the right thing to do. How dare anyone try to suggest that it is something to be ashamed of."

A PSNI spokesman said: "We do not comment on specific threats however if we receive information that an individual may need to review their security we will take steps to inform them immediately."

East Londonderry MP Gregory Campbell jokingly referred to the jibe during a speech at the party conference on Saturday.

He told delegates it was always good to start the day with a healthy breakfast, before producing a tub of yoghurt and saying: "So I got some yoghurt today.

"And I'm looking forward to lunch, because they tell me there's some curry there."

Irish language leader Micheal O Duibh - who addressed the DUP conference - said he was dismayed by a fresh attack on the language from one of the party's MPs.

He said it felt like "one step forward, two steps back" after Gregory Campbell's remarks.


Mr Campbell also said the DUP would treat Sinn Fein's "entire wish list" - which includes calls for an Irish Language Act - like toilet paper. His latest comments have been condemned by Mr O Duibh, who took part in a panel discussion on the first day of the conference.

Mr O Duibh, who is chief executive of Comhairle na Gaelscolaiochta, the body responsible for the promotion of Irish-medium schooling, said his remarks were disrespectful.

"It is very disappointing," he told the Belfast Telegraph.

"When I was speaking at the party conference I was bringing a very positive message and I very much welcomed the invitation.

"It was a first for Irish-medium education and, most likely, a first for anybody from the Irish language background to be invited to a DUP conference.

"I gave a very warm céad míle fáilte to everybody and brought across a very strong, positive message that the Irish language and Irish-medium education is there for any parent who chooses it for their child, regardless of their social, cultural, religious or indeed linguistic background.

"To bring that positive message to the conference, and then the next day to hear the comments from Gregory Campbell felt very much like one step forward and two steps back."

Mr O Duibh said he felt let down by the latest remarks.

"In one way it was positive that I was invited to the conference," he added. "In another way it gives me an understanding of how Gregory feels or what his position is on the language.

"When you hear the party leader talk about a shared future, I wonder how he, as leader, can talk about that shared future when his party colleague feels it is okay to comment on the language in this way."

Mr Campbell appears to have made his yoghurt joke off the cuff, since it was not included in the embargoed copy of his speech released by the party press office on Saturday morning. Afterwards, DUP leader Peter Robinson defended the remarks as comedy.

However, Sinn Fein minister John O'Dowd condemned Mr Campbell and Mr Robinson.

"The insult directed by Gregory Campbell at the Irish language community from the DUP conference is appalling," the Education Minister said. "He was clearly sticking two fingers up to the Irish language community and to authority of the assembly which sanctioned him for his unacceptable behaviour in the chamber.

"I'm dismayed that Peter Robinson, in echoes of his failure to deal promptly with abuse directed at the Muslim community earlier this year, has added insult to injury by suggesting Campbell's mockery was a piece of comedy."



What they said

Micheal O Duibh: "I gave a very warm céad míle fáilte to everybody and brought across a very strong, positive message that the Irish language and Irish medium education is there for any parent who chooses it for their child.

"To bring that positive message to the conference, and then the next day to hear the comments from Gregory Campbell felt very much like one step forward and two steps back."

Peter Robinson: "This is getting tedious. If all that you have out of the whole of the party conference is to question me about that, then there are better things I could be doing.

"Lighten up will you? It's a party conference and it was a bit of comedy in the middle of it, let's get on with some real business."

Dominic Bradley, SDLP: "Mr Campbell may think that he is targeting Sinn Fein with these slurs but the Irish language community is much wider and deeper than the membership of any one political party.

"Irish language speakers, those who aspire to speak Irish and all right-minded people who respect the languages of others will be insulted and disappointed by Gregory Campbell's antics."

John O'Dowd, SF: "The insult directed by Gregory Campbell at the Irish language community from the DUP conference is appalling.

"He was clearly sticking two fingers up to the Irish language community."



Background

Dr Micheal O Duibh is the chief executive of Comhairle na Gaelscolaiochta, the body responsible for the promotion of Irish-medium schooling. He was invited to take part in a panel discussion on the future of education on the first day of the DUP conference.

The organisation described it as "a significant and historical occasion".
