I'm frightened by SF vote surge

Monday, 4 June 2012
Belfast Telegraph
I'm both bemused and frightened by the upsurge in support for Sinn Fein in the Republic.
As a former history teacher, I can see many parallels between Sinn Fein and the Nazi Party of the 1930s. While the Nazis blamed the Treaty of Versailles (1919) for Germany's ills, Sinn Fein blames the 'austerity treaty'.

Demographic change will enivitably increase their vote.
In NI better having SF in charge than people who hate you simply because of your religion.

Where to start with this letter. I first had to double check the calender and make sure it wasn't April 1st today.

If you had a good grasp of southern politics, you would realise it's hard for government parties to show good support in polls especially the junior party, hence Labour's awful current poll rating.

Take away Fine Gael and Labour and disregarding the ULA and independents, you've really just got toxic bank louts Fianna Fail or Sinn Fein to chose from.

Also something that SF is doing extremely well down south, when ever they have a repersentative on a current affairs show, he/she is very,very, well upto date on their brief, it wasn't like that years ago. They're coming across as very articulate with figures and facts to back up their arguement.

People more and more don't see SF as Gerry Adams or M.McGuinness, it's now Mary Lou McDonald, Pearse Doherty, Peader Tobin and the others.

Finally on your point about SF use of austerity treaty, how about how the Irish government called it a 'stability treaty' it was the fiscal treaty, nothing more, nothing less, and it will bring some continued level of austerity, the stability, I have serious questions on that front.
God help Ireland ! I do predict a united Ireland and Sinn Fein in charge believe it or not. The sinners foot soldiers are like nazi stormtroopers. It is their way or no way. Beware the 100 year anniversary in 2016. Hopefully I am wrong, but Ireland will be a disaster with in charge, if you think it is bad now, just wait. Ask the S.D.L.P. about how S.F. took over in the working class communities in N.I. They were threatened, intimidated, and assaulted by S.F. supporters. Is this democracy?
Sinn Féin, the only party with elected representatives in both parts of the divided country, are merely a symptom of a major problem. They, in and of themselves, aren't the real problem. As for comparing Gerry Adams' party to Hitler's Nazis, Sinn Féin have no plans for world conquest,. Ther main objective is to reunite their homeland and make it a single political entity, as it had been for 7½ centuries when ruled by monarchs and governments in London. Remove the superfluous Partition and you eliminate Sinn Féin.
Just because the Nazis rose to power following an economic crisis doesn't mean that every group that does the same is fascist or otherwise bad. Sinn Féin and Nazis are polar opposites so you have nothing to worry about there. Fine Gael actually has historic ties to fascist groups created to fight Sinn Féin and the IRA (I am not saying FG is fascist). Did you teach your history classes about the Blue Shirts? Somehow I bet you wouldn't care if a fascist party was gaining in popularity, as long as it was pro-partition.
Your former pupils have my full symphony, Mr Coe.

We can only hope you lost your marbles after you retired.
Tough luck George.It's called democracy.Get used to it.
Godwin's law (also known as Godwin's Rule of Nazi Analogies or Godwin's Law of Nazi Analogies) is an observation made by lawyer and author Mike Godwin in 1990. It states: "As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches." In other words, Godwin observed that, given enough time, in any online discussion—regardless of topic or scope—someone inevitably makes some comparison to Hitler and the Nazis.

Well done to Mr. Coe for single-handedly accomplishing both the first mention of the initial subject and the subsequent Nazi analogy in just over 50 words.

Wife of dissident republican accuses police of 'heavy-handedness' ahead of Creggan rally

Sun, 03/06/2012 - 20:08 -- Editor
The wife of a Derry republican, who was arrested last night in Creggan on suspicion of dissident republican activity, has accused the Police of 'heavy-handedness'. She was speaking to Newswire before a rally was held in Creggan organised to highlight local people's anger at police raids in the area.
The rally, entitled Creggan Under Siege, was organised after Gabrielle Lancaster's house in Circular Road was raided and her 50-year-old husband, who is a member of the 32CSM, was arrested. Mrs Lancaster claimed her 20-year-old daughter and 22-year-old son were 'man-handled' by police officers during the house raid.
She alleges that a police officer 'grabbed' her daughter by the wrist as she made to open the living room door and that her son 'was pinned to the sofa' by another officer. She also alleges that police officers were drilling in her attic during the raid.
Speakers at today's rally included dissident republican Gary Donnelly, who claimed the media, church and politicians were turning a blind eye to the 'onslaught on the Creggan community'.
"I want to make an appeal to the politicians, the media, the church," he said. " Stop trying to ram the PSNI down our throats as the new police force. Children are being seriously traumatised here. This cannot go on. It wasn't acceptable when it was the B-Specials, the RUC and now the PSNI."
A spokesperson from the PSNI refuted claims of heavy-handedness.
"The PSNI have a responsibility to tackle and investigate crime and the vast majority of the community in Creggan have made it clear that this is what they expect of their Police Service. A number of searches were conducted in the area in relation to dissident republican activity. Police make no apology for tackling criminality in any form.
"Police refute any allegations of ‘heavy-handed’ policing during the search operations in Creggan area. Police carried out their duties in a proportionate manner with professionalism and respect. It is disappointing that the actions of police have been criticised, at a time when they are working to minimise risk to local residents.
"Police will not be deterred from providing the service the community have asked for and will continue their work with local residents to make the area a safer place for everyone.
"Anyone who is unhappy with police action should report it to the Police Ombudsman."

Anarchists are vowing to wage “low-intensity warfare” in the weeks leading up to this summer’s Olympic Games in London — and claim their “guerilla” attacks have already begun.
Raging in an Internet manifesto, the Informal Anarchist Federation states its reason for wanting to cause havoc before London becomes an athletic stage for the world: “We don’t want rich tourists — we want civil war.”
The anarchist group, according to The Telegraph, plans to use its “urban” warfare strategy against financial institutions, transportation structure and the military.
The Italian anti-establishment group claimed responsibility for burning railway signal systems last Tuesday along a route that was targeted because it is used by Ministry of Defense employees.
In its missive on the anti-capitalist website 325.nostate, the group explains its motive:
“In the United Kingdom of clockwork control and domestication, we’re some of the ‘unpatriotic ones’ who find the 2012 Olympics — with the ensuing spectacle of wealth (when so many here struggle to feed themselves and their families) ... and escalating police state — frankly offensive.”
They say they are beholden to no one.
“No union or movement calls our shots, and we have no inhibition to use guerilla activity to hurt the national image and paralyze the economy however we can,” the missive continued, promising a “new generation of urban, low-intensity warfare.”
“The purpose of guerilla attack is to spread the struggle into different territories and facets of life,” they wrote.
The group previously claimed responsibility for shooting the chief executive of a nuclear power firm in the kneecaps during a drive-by attack in Italy, The Telegraph reported.
A private sector security consultant told RT, a Russian English-language news channel, that attacks could have serious consequences.
“If they are serious about trying to disrupt the Olympics by using simple techniques such as these, they are capable of causing utter havoc,” the consultant said.
In the railway attack, the anarchists said all they needed to do was lift up concrete slabs to gain access to the signal technology.
Earlier this month, the Guardian newspaper reported that Britain’s bill for hosting the 2012 Olympic Games could exceed the budget of $9.3 billion pounds — $14.6 billion in U.S. dollars — due in large part to increasing security costs.
