INDYMEDIA IRELAND BREAKS IRISH PEACE PROCESS








"Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable." -

-- John F. Kennedy

"The most potent weapon of the oppressor is the mind of the oppressed." -

Steve Biko
Today Indymedia Ireland stands accused of willfully breaking the Belfast Agreement or what is called the peace process in Ireland with British or Egyptian type censorship. Rampant blackout censorship and astroturfing have destroyed the Peace process and any form of democracy in Ireland. The British and large international corporations have an almost complete monopoly on the Irish media, with free and fair elections impossible in such circumstances. Indymedia Ireland stand accused of censorship on a scale even greater that for instance Egypt is currently exercising.
The Belfast Agreement with lofty language, constantly mentions enshrining the principle of change, via persuasive, peaceful politics with the consent of the people. To explain it more clearly, below are the provisions of the agreement along with much material from my previous article on this matter.
Principle that any change to the constitutional status of Northern Ireland could only follow a majority vote of the citizens in both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland;
Commitment by all parties to use "exclusively peaceful and democratic means";
Establishment of a Northern Ireland Assembly with devolved legislative powers;
Cross-community principle for any major decision taken by the Assembly;
Establishment of a 'power-sharing' Northern Ireland Executive, using the d'Hondt method to allocate Ministries proportionally to the main parties;
Introduction of legislation to place a duty to promote equality of opportunity on public authorities in Northern Ireland
The intentional vague wording of several of the provisions along with ambiguity, demonstrates a level of insincerity not acceptable to any reasonably intelligent objective analysis, bearing in mind the considerable time and expense involved in its construction and its hyped international legal status. It cannot thus be regarded as document of international legal standing. In any event several of its provisions have already been broken by perfidious Albion and its minions in both the British and Irish media as outlined below.
The current reality of this agreement, in key and delicate issues meant to enable peace, where there is a pre-requisite of trust and honesty, there is secrecy, deceit and censorship. While we have censorship, political assassination, kidnap, blackmail, torture, sponsored child rape or [political death threats, we cannot have real peace in the two British created, compliant scum states, not fit for a dog never mind children to grow in peace. All over the Island there are estates of people of no property, policed by British MI-5 & MI-6 sponsored, drug cartels with lazy police approval, just like police thugs without uniforms committing criminal acts to smash people's communities and their empowerment.
At the core of a pseudo peace process in Ireland, was meant to be the principle of consent, touted as delivering a new Ireland, united by the people's ability to recognise common cause, and agree a common path on its relatively small island. One of the biggest obstacles to progressive politics in British Occupied Ireland for decades, was the fear of change and the fear of each other. Nationalists fear that unity will never be achieved. Unionists fear being forced into a united Ireland. Fear has kept Irish people in separate enclaves not just in the north but separate from the south as well, preventing people from recognizing their common interests who live beside each other.
So the basis of what was called a peace process, stated that only through persuasion, could real change take place.
And persuade, peace loving people try, under the constant threat of murderous elimination by British sponsored unionism but now post agreement, by the British form of their sponsored phony murderous nationalists.While the British mentored political establishment, North and South theoretically agreed that the future political path would be exclusively through persuasion and consent, they created a platform of monopoly, for a one party executive with a two state policy, similar to the one created previously in a British compliant catholic scum state in the south.
We have plenty of evidence today, of just what kind of scum states are produced in an Ireland, without core traditional republican values of liberty, equality, fraternity, non-sectarianism brought to Ireland by Protestant, dissenter, dissidents from France, to challenge the old order of the British Monarchy and inherited privilege. Today the old order is still preserved in both Irish scum states, with rampant censorship by outlets such as Indymedia Ireland and the BBC with an almost total blackout of the traditional Irish republican perspective of liberty, equality and fraternity for all of the people of the island.
Genuine persuasion and the development of genuinely sharing ideas, is not happening between neigbours, despite all of today's modern tools of communication. The structures set up to represent the nationalist perspective, are geared towards two state solution parties only. The negotiated agreement, enshrined the principle of no change in constitutional status, without the consent of the people but never included the traditional republican agenda for peace. It instead has created the current political reality of maintaining the status quo in two British compliant scum states, without real accountability or the possibility of peaceful change, outside a revolution similar to the ones, which replaced the monarchies of inherited privilege in Europe and created the republics to enable liberty, equality and fraternity.
How do Irish political pacifist for social justice and progressive change in Ireland use persuasion, if they are constantly censored by the British and their scum state stooges ? How do traditional Irish republicans advocate a united Ireland, while kidnap, murder, torture and threats by the establishment parties, are still sponsored by the British, in their two compliant pacified, scum states ?. How can any ethical activist co-operate with political parties, that legalize child rape in two scum states, reinforced by the British paramilitary police, an archaic British judicial system and an official secrets act the envy of the most fascist of regimes anywhere in the world ? How do you protect your children in two such scum states, if the British mentored establishment of both, are promoting and protecting child rapists, using it as political tool of Irish enslavement, while at the same time imposing draconian censorship and nationwide internet filtering, under the hypocritical pretext of child abuse ?
Real peace is only possible in an environment consistent for everyone, allowing all people say what they want to say, with equal access to all of the media, empowering participants to participate in a transparent media that illuminates quickly, for the viewing public the hypocrisies, corruption and cronyism, endemic in British sponsored Irish political life. To build trust, to persuade, to achieve real peace, there must be credibility with a proven track record of honesty and consistency by any leadership, with the possibility of change based on transparency and real time access to the facts as they happen not thirty years later..
How then can we have a peaceful path of persuasion with such rampant censorship and imprisoned political dissidents on a scale greater than the ratio of pilloried China?. How can we persuade the minority in British Occupied Ireland, of our vision of an agreed united Ireland, when political activists are being murdered by British mentored political parties? How can a real peace take root, without principles of social justice in deprived estates all over the island ?.
A recent personal experience of mine, being personally kidnapped and threatened with, " an accident" to silence my beliefs and the censorship of a petition on Facebook for real peace with justice in Ireland along with Indymedia Ireland as opposed to any other Indymedia outlet in any other country in the world, confirms for me personally, the insincerity of the majority of the parties to the agreement, putting self interest, ahead of the interests of all of the people of the country, just like all of the southern establishment crony bankster parties and bribed union leadership. They are instead, prepared to go to any extreme, to maintain control of their own special, vested interests, in a pseudo, peace process, which in reality is about special interests, shared power and political crony corporate wealth.
Social justice is the foundation stone of any real genuine peace. It is clearly absent in the Belfast agreement. A non-violent society is only possible in circumstance of social justice, fairness and equality, with the rights of free speech for everyone. Truth and forgiveness are also key elements of any real peace, which are not possible, with official secret's acts and the absence of honesty and genuine pleas for forgiveness, in a truth and reconciliation setting. Those corrupt politicians who continue to hide their parts in murder and child rape, have no business in any position of leadership of such a process. Only a radical social change will create the conditions for real peace in all of Ireland.
Human rights in Ireland have two commissions on the island, both of which are definetly not doing their job. There is a joint committee of the two, which is meant to consider all-Ireland human rights, which is clearly just a talking shop that ignores widespread violations on a politically selective basis. An Ireland where human rights and equality are ignored and an official blind eye, to officially sanctioned widespread abuse and murder, is not a basis for any form of peace.
Real peace in Ireland requires a basic principle of unity for social justice, human rights, equality and prosperity. What use is any process Ireland where ordinary people cannot participate effectively in it? The current harsh reality is that neither scum state, values people other than their vote, which is all on the basis of tweedledee, tweedledum politics anyway, in a sectarian headcount of an uninformed censored ignorant society.
One of the main communication policies, being advocated by the British government to its colonies and compliant ex-colonies worldwide, including both of its scum states in Ireland, are nationwide internet filtering, to block and slow down what they term illegal and ‘inappropriate’ material, with excuses like to ‘protect children’ or 'protect copyright' or terrorism, while the reality is that their intelligence services are the ones pushing state sponsored terrorism and child rape, as a form of their political and blackmail control in the establishment of all of its commonwealth and compliant state bureaucracy.
There is incredible abuse in the process. Blacklists sit in the hands of a small group of bureaucrats and with outlets such as Indymedia Ireland.. These select few have political and partisan intention, they manipulate the international internet filters to decide worldwide what opinions, news stories or political views people are allowed to access particularly relating to British Occupied Ireland.They replicate exactly what happens in countries where similar filters exist (see China and Burma), hypocritically championing Chinese dissidents, while murdering dissident lawyers, journalists and protectors of children, against child rape in Ireland and politically interning the remainder, waiting for kangaroo trials without jury for years, to silence Ireland's prisoner's of conscience for liberty, equality and fraternity.
All of Ireland currently is a police state, policed by British thought police with regime's the most right-wing and corrupt in Europe. The government of both scum states north and south want to reserve the right to block any material they deem ‘offensive’, including peace sites critical of the police states, while at the same time they refuse to disclose, what is on their list of offensive material. The fact that the British Government and their collaborators keep this list secret, under their so called Official Secrets Act, is indicative of their sinister and political intentions while breaking blatantly the basic terms of their contrived, pseudo, provisional, peace process in Ireland. The reality is that any genuine alternative to their political status quo is censored.
With rampant corruption, police brutality, kangaroo courts, state sponsorship of child rape, selective British paramilitary police, sponsorship of criminality and back breaking poverty, there is a revolution coming in Ireland. Without justice, there can be no REAL peace. This obvious fact is disguised under the pretence of the pseudo, provisional, peace, process, whose terms have already been broken by the British. Obviously there are vested establishment careerist and monetary interests in having as many Irish people as possible, at each others throats in the meantime, like in Iraq and Afghanistan, as they take their age old divide and conquer policies to a new level of depravity, in a country that is going bankrupt materially and morally, as result of ruthless, heartless, foreign Imperialism.
Indymedia Ireland stands accused of being a tool of British Imperialism in Ireland not just with its rampant censorship but its ignorance of real working class issues in Ireland

IRELAND RIDES THE INTERNATIONAL REVOLUTION









My first introduction to real politik (politics based primarily on practical and material factors rather than ideological, romantic, notions and premises, as is often the case in Ireland) was shortly after I arrived in in London at the start of the 70's. I was staying in the home of the Guildford Four, in Algernon Road in Kilburn, well aware of their innocence, as they received six life sentences for something they had absolutely no  connection with. That story is portrayed reasonably accurately in the film,"in the Name of the Father".


The party I joined was the WRP who maintained as Trotskyists of international socialism, that James Connolly's writings were wooly and that Irish nationalism was counter-revolutionary, in the scheme of the International struggle ot eh working class. Some of the left worked hard, primarily in the United Troops Out Movement to get the British out of Ireland. In fact some of them would put a lot of Irish activists to shame, with their total dedication, commitment and energy to the cause but the British left was and still is wracked by division and infiltration. I eventually disagreed with them strongly on Ireland and particular Connolly and left. One of Connolly's better known statements is, "the cause of Ireland is the cause of labour and the cause of labour is the cause of Ireland. Unfortunately both in Ireland and in Britain, Labour and Trade Union careerist leadership have betrayed both real Labour and the ordinary people of both Ireland and Britain.

However I learned a lot from the Trotskyite party particularly about Ireland's place in a general Internationale. One of the biggest enemies of the Trotskyite parties are the Stalinists. Stalin had Trotsky assassinated in Mexico with an ice pick in the head, as he perceived him, as the principal danger to Stalin's own mix of national socialism, which essentially is a close relative of Hitler's fascism. However what a lot of the left fail to realize, is that Ireland in both of its British devised scum states, is still primarily a British colony, with Ireland still engaged in centuries old struggle, to liberate itself from colonialism, with the people of no property and working class, divided on an ongoing daily basis by British Imperialist interference, with its policy of divide and conquer, now compounded by corporate Europe's form of fascism. The EU is not about the unification of the people of Europe, its about the unification of Corporate Europe.

The daily working class struggle of the people of no property has to contend on an ongoing basis with various sophisticated forms of fooling the people, using their own community leadership against them. Unfortunately many of the Stalinists have like the Catholic Church become part of the problem, with many of them used unwittingly by the establishment, as tools to defeat the ongoing evolution and revolution of the people. The infiltration of working class struggle and the deception of the people with distractions such as the modern form of astroturfing is just one example. The struggle for Irish independence and unification of the Irish people, is part of the international class war against, the monster of anti-human, capitalism and its imperialist tentacles all over the planet, with its ongoing daily wars on the people of no property throughout the world. Ireland continues to play its part in the realization of the ongoing heroic victory of the comrades of the Internationale. The media below helps put that in context.

Letter to Leon Trotsky on Ireland

(1938)

Copied with thanks from the Workers’ Republic Website.
Marked up by Einde O’Callaghan for ETOL.


11 December 1938
New York City
Leon Trotsky
Coyoacan
Mexico DF
My Dear Leon Trotsky:
We were both very pleased to receive your note. Hortense, jokingly, says that it must all be a Stalinist plot. While she is not disinterested in politics, she is, in no sense, a political person. However, she is no bitter foe. And in her own profession, the theatre, she must pay a price for her attitudes and the stand that she has taken. Stalinist influence is permeating the American theatre, and Hortense is automatically excluded from even being considered for roles in plays by certain managements because of this fact.
Concerning “the mysteries of my style” [1], you may be amused to know that one Communist Party functionary described it, once in The Daily Worker, as “Trotskyite.” And one of the most current criticisms of my writing in Stalinist sources is that “the rationale of Trotskyism” has given a basis for his “despair,” and through that means he is degenerating.

This summer I was in Ireland, and I saw Jim Larkin. All men have weaknesses, but all men are not the victims of their weaknesses. Jim Larkin is a victim of his own weaknesses, and his own temperament. Now, he is embittered and envenomed. He feels that the Irish working class has sold him out. He was not returned in the last elections for the Dáil, and he ran in a working class district. He defended the trials, but thought that Bukharin could not be interested. But Larkin’s formal attitudes do not have much meaning. He is untheoretical and unstable intellectually. He is always a direct actionist, and his direct actionism takes whatever turn that his impulses lead him toward, In the midst, for instance, of a severe fight, he might be walking down the street and see a sparrow trapped in some electric wires where it might die. He will become incensed, and will telephone important members of the government and demand that they have men sent down to release the sparrow immediately, and then this will loom more important than the fight in which he is engaged. He is very garrulous, human and humane, witty, vindictive, vituperative, and he is Irish. At times, he is almost like an embittered version of the stage Irishman. In Ireland, there has never been much theory, and in consequence, never been many men with a rounded view of the reasons why Ireland was struggling.


Before the war, the Irish labor movement was very militant and well toward the forefront of the European labor movement. It was defeated in the great Dublin transport strike of 1913, and out of this crushing defeat, the Irish Citizen Army was formed. Larkin left for America, and Larkin says that one of the last things that he said to Connolly was not to go into the National movement, not to join the Irish Volunteers, which was the armed force of the nationalist movement. Connolly did go into the Easter Rebellion, and there is the disputed question as to whether or not he made a mistake. Sean O’Casey, the Irish playwright, in a pamphlet he wrote on the Irish Citizen Army, declares baldly that James Connolly died not for Irish socialism but for Irish nationalism. Others maintain that Connolly could not have remained out of the rising. At all events, the Irish Citizen Army was decimated, and crushed by the Easter Rebellion. There were no leaders left to carry on the social side of Connolly’s doctrines. The entire movement was swept along in a frenzied rise of Irish patriotism and Irish nationalism.


 Sinn Féin was in complete control of the movement. The leaders of Sinn Féin had only the most vague notions of what they wanted – an Irish Ireland speaking Gaelic, developing its own Irish culture, free of the British crown, and some were not even fighting them for freedom from the crown. In 1921, when the treaty was negotiated in England, there was this same unclarity. Following the treaty, there was the split in the Irish ranks. The record of that split is most saddening to read. It was not a split on real issues. There were two or three documents with different wordings, and they all meant much the same thing. Instead of discussing social programs, they discussed Ireland, and they insulted one another. Out of this split the bitter civil war developed, and the comrades in arms of yesterday assassinated one another. The treatment which the Free State government meted out to its former comrades matches almost that which Stalin has meted out. The bravest fighters of the Irish Republican Army were taken out and placed up against a wall and butchered without any formality. And now, after all the trouble, the Irish people have changed masters, and a new Irish bourgeoisie is developing and coagulating, and the politicians of Sinn Féin are aligned with them and the Church, with reaction rampant, poverty to match even that of Mexico, progressive ideas almost completely shut out, a wall of silence keeping out the best Irish tradition – that of Fintan Lalor, Davitt, and Connolly, and poor Ireland is in a hell of a state. Larkin returned in the early twenties.


After defeat, the Irish labor movement needed someone to lead it who could remould a defeated class. Larkin was a great and courageous agitator, but not a leader of a defeated army, and he could not work with any one. Gradually, he lost influence, and now he is old and embittered. Of course, Catholicism plays a strong role in Ireland, and Larkin is a Catholic and talks of the virtues of the Christian home. And suddenly out of his garrulous talk, a flash of his old fire comes through. Perhaps you are riding through the Dublin slums with him, and suddenly, seeing the poor in their filth, standing in front of the filthy buildings in which they are forced to live like animals, and a strong denunciation comes, and there is something of the Jim Larkin who defied the British Army, and at whose words the poor of Dublin came out into the streets in thousands, and flung themselves against the might of Britain and that of the Irish bourgeoisie. Human beings are social products, and Larkin is a product of the Irish movement. The principal instrument of the Irish revolutionaries was always terrorism and direct action, and when Larkin was unable to function with these methods on the wave of a rising and militant movement, he was lost, and the labor bureaucrats outmaneuvered and outsmarted him. When he returned to Ireland from an American jail, he got his following together, and marched on the quarters of the union he had formerly led. He took the building, but later lost it in the law courts, and he is no longer the leader of the transport workers. He has union following, and among his strongest support is that of the butchers and hospital workers.


He showed me something in Ireland that few people in Dublin know about. In the Parnell days, a terrorist organization, composed almost exclusively of Dublin workingmen was formed and named the Invincibles. The Invincibles committed the famous Phoenix Park murders in front of the vice-regal lodge, and were denounced by the Church, by Parnell, and by almost the entire Irish nation. There are no monuments in Ireland to the Invincibles. They died in isolation, some of them defiant to the end in their utter isolation. At the spot across from the vice-regal lodge in Phoenix Park, where the murders were committed, there is a patch of earth alongside of the park walk. No matter how often grass is planted over this spot the grass is torn up by the roots, and this spot of earth is left, and always, there is a cross marked into the dirt in commemoration of the Invincibles. Every week, someone – principally, I believe, one of Larkin’s boys – goes there and marks that cross. This has been going on for a long time.


In Larkin, there is something of that characteristic of defiant defeat that runs through so much of Irish history, and with it, never any real investigation of causes. But even up to today, he remains the only figure of commanding proportions in the Irish labor movement. The rest is pretty nearly all bureaucracy, tied to the tail of nationalism, enfolded in the cassock robes of the priestcraft, seeing the problems of Irish labor as an Irish question. Ireland is having something of an industrial boom. Certain sections of the Irish working class, the most advanced trade unions – which have been in existence some time – these are better paid than corresponding trade unions in England. But the country is partitioned between an industrial north and an agricultural south. In the south, de Valera is engaged in a program of industrialization. The Irish market is small, and that means that monopolies must be parcelled out to various groups or persons. When these monopolies get going, there will be resultant crises, because they will be able to supply the Irish market with a few months work and production. Also, the new factories are being spread over the country – a program of decentralization – and in many instances, factories are being set up in agricultural areas where there is no trade union strength. It is necessary to further industrialization in Ireland to have, as a consequence, sweat shop conditions. There is a small labor aristocracy and even this lives badly. And below it, poverty that reduces thousands upon thousands to live like animals in the most dire, miserable, and inhuman poverty. I saw some of this poverty. One family of eleven living in one room. The family has lived in this same room for twenty-four years. The building is crumbling, walls falling, ceiling caving in, roof decaying. The oldest in the family is nineteen, the youngest is an undernourished infant of eight months. Six sleep in one bed, three in another, two on the floor. The infant was born last Christmas eve in the bed where six sleep. The role of the Church is important. The Church tells the Irish that they are going to live for ever and be happier in heaven, and this engenders patience. There is a mystic fascination with death in Ireland. In all the homes of the poor, the walls are lined with holy pictures, those of the Sacred Heart predominating. The poor live in utter patience. They have lived in this patience ever since the heyday of Jim Larkin. In those days, at his word, they thronged the streets and threatened the power of England, and of the Irish and Anglo-Irish bourgeoisie. But no more. However, with the industrialization program, there is likely to be some enlargement of the Irish working class, and the economic factors of proletarianization, plus the resulting effects of factory work and familiarity with machines is likely to cause some changes in the consciousness of Irishmen. Familiarity with machines is likely to rub off some of the superstition, and the economic conditions will pose their problems to the Irish workers.


There is possibly going to be a change in Ireland because of these factors, and some of the eternal sleep and mud-crusted ignorance is likely to go. But being an agricultural country, a poor country, a country ridden by superstition, it now sleeps, and there is a lot of talk about Ireland, and little is done about Ireland, and a characteristic attitude is sure and what is the bother. Ireland is no longer merely a victim of England, but of world economy now. Irish nationalism correspondingly has altered from being a progressive movement to a reactionary movement. Fascism could easily triumph in Ireland were fascism vitally necessary to the new rulers of Holy Ireland.
The Irish Republican Army is split into factions, some demanding emphasis on a social program, others on a national program. Stalinists are in the former group, but Stalinism is very weak in Ireland, practically inconsequential. It amounts to a few pensionaries. Ireland does not need Stalinism. It has Rome. Rome handles these problems with the necessary efficiency. Rome confuses the struggles, poses the false questions, sidetracks protests as Stalinism now does in advanced countries.


As a kind of compensation, Ireland a defeated nation has developed a fine modern literature, just as Germany, defeated and still un-unified at an earlier period, developed German philosophy. But the moral terrorism in the name of the Church and the Nation, and the parochial character of the life and of intellect in Ireland might choke the literature now. So backward is Ireland that even the American motion pictures have a progressive influence in the sense that they make the youth restless, that they produce freer and less strained relationships between the sexes, and that they give a sense of a social life of more advanced countries that is not permitted because of the state of economy in Ireland. Ireland impresses me as being somewhat parallel to Mexico, except that in Mexico there are progressive strains in the country, and in Ireland these are weak and morally terrorized. In part, this is undoubtedly because of Ireland’s lack of mineral resources and wealth, the backwardness and sleep of its labor movement, and the role of the Church. In Ireland, the Church was not the feudal landholder. Behind the scenes, the Church always fought against the Irish people, and spoke for law and order. But at one time, the Church itself was oppressed. The Church and the people became entangled in the consciousness of the Irish, and the religion question befogged the social and economic one. In Mexico, Spain, France, and Russia, the Church was more openly a part of a feudal or pseudo-feudal system. The peasants became anti-clerical because they wanted land. This did not happen in Ireland. In consequence, anti-clericalism did not take the same form. Anti-clericalism amounts to jokes at the priesthood, dislike of the archbishops, and so forth. In earlier days, it was stronger, particularly among the Fenians. But it never took the real form it took in France, Spain, etc. And so the Church has great power in Ireland today. In the most real, vivid, and immediate sense it gives opium to the people.


Poor Ireland! She is one of the costs demanded by history in the growth of what we familiarly call our civilization. There is an old poem with the lines – They went forth to battle And they always fell. And today, after having fallen so many times, Ireland is a poor island on the outpost of European civilization, with all its heroic struggles leaving it, after partial victory, poverty-stricken, backward, wallowing in superstition and ignorance.


My favorite Irish anecdote is the following. The last castle in Ireland to fall to Cromwell’s army was Castleross on the lakes of Killarney. At that time, the castle was held by the O’Donoghue. For several months, the British could not take the castle. The Irish infantry was more lightly clad than the British, and would always lead the better armored and more heavily clad British down into the bogs where their armed superiority became a handicap, and then the Irish would cut them to pieces. There was an old Gaelic prophecy that Castleross would never fall to a foreign foe until it was attacked by water. There was a proviso in this prophecy. For the lakes of Killarney empty into Dingle Bay, where the water is so shallow that foreign men of war from the sea cannot enter it. The British general heard of this prophecy. He went to Dingle Bay and built flat-bottomed boats and floated them up the lakes of Killarney. He fired one cannon shot at Castleross. And the O’Donoghue, thinking that the prophecy had been fulfilled, surrendered without firing a shot in return.


I took the liberty of writing in such detail about Ireland because I thought you might be interested in modern Ireland. They call it the “new Ireland” these days.
Hortense joins me in sending our warmest greetings to you and Natalia.

Yours,
Farrell

HITLER'S GRAND CHILDREN READY FOR POWER IN RONNIE DREW'S IRELAND







The Irish state generally known as the scum state, has been ruled constantly, since its inception by two of Europe's most right-wing parties. The record of disgraced Fiann Fail the crony bankers arty is fresh in people's memories but with offshore banker and corporate money flooding the coffers of Fine Gael for a media blitz of brainwashing the waters are being muddied for the angry Irish electorate. While Fiann Fail is right-wing, Fine Gael who are now quasi-fascist, servicing exclusively the interests of the corporates and the modern British corporate of the Commonwealth. Fine Gael's founders are war criminals in the same tradition as Adolph Hitler, Franco and Mussolini as the following explains.

Cumann na nGaedheal joined the National Centre Party to form a new party, Fine Gael, on 3 September 1933. Eoin O'Duffy became their first President. The National Guard became the Young Ireland Association and became part of the fascist youth wing of the party. The party target was to create a corporatist United Ireland joining the British Commonwealth. O'Duffy left the party after a disagreement with his Fine Gael colleagues, almost all of the fascist blueshirts remained in Fine Gael.The Fine Gael Blue shirts raised an "Irish Brigade" that took the side of fascist General Francisco Franco's in the Spanish Civil War against the workers in Spain. Their founder attended the Montreux Fascist conference in Switzerland.

The Fine Gael Blueshirts are the Irish equivalent of Hitler's Brownshirts and Mussolini's Blackshirts. They employed paramilitary-style uniforms and greeted each other with the Fascist salute. Fascist ideology is still widespread among rank-and-file members of young Fine Gael, many of whom hate the Irish Republic.The Army Comrades Association which was created in 1932 to promote the interests of ex-National Army and police members, to defend conservative and foreign corporate interests. They were also infiltrated by the British Secret Services, while they in turn infiltrated the Irish Police force in large numbers to halt what they perceived as an emerging threat, from organized Irish workers and people of no property. They became known as the "Heavy Gang" who still torture and batter protest students on the Irish streets.






What is of particularly worry for ordinary Irish people, is that the Irish scum state army is also heavily infiltrated with Fine Gael Blue shirts, who over the years through patronage, have filled almost all of the the officer ranks with fascist Fine Gael blue shirts. When the British secrets services MI-5 set off no warning car bombs in Dublin and Monaghan, slaughtering 33 innocent civilians, they were sided by the fascist blue shirts, who had infiltrated the Irish police at the highest level. Immediately after the slaughter Irish police burned all of the evidence, while in the Irish Parliament, debate on the matter was censored.

Sometime later Frank Stagg an Irish republican died on Hunger strike against these British instigated injustices of occupation. His brothers and wife wanted to have him buried in a republican plot in Ballina. However the fascist Fine Gael Irish Government kidnapped his body and ordered the flight to be diverted to Shannon Airpor,t with his body then brought to Ballina and buried, in order to prevent Frank's last wish, along with his wife and brothers wishes but the fascist blue shirts of Fine Gael covered the grave with concrete to prevent it.

The founder of Fine Gael, on August 27, ordered two anti-treaty fighters shot, after they had surrendered in Tralee. James Healy, was left for dead but survived to tell the tale. Another Republican was shot in Killarney after he surrendered, while James Galvin was shot and dumped in Ballyseedy woods outside Tralee. A party of nine was wiped out near Sligo by blue shirts, including John MacNeill, the son of Eoin MacNeill, who were found shot at close range in the forehead, indicating being shot after surrendering.

However perhaps the worst atrocity of the Civil War was ordered again by Fine Gael's founder . At Ballyseedy Bridge, in County Kerry, nine Republican prisoners were tied up to a tree beside a land mine which was then detonated. One of the prisoners however lived to tell the story and refuted official reports they had been the victims of an accident. Vol. O'Brien miraculously survived. He had both legs hanging on by a little skin and muscle. They were amputated immediately on arrival in Tralee.







The founders of Fine Gael ordered Irish republican prisoners to clear mined roads in Ireland. On March 7, nine political prisoners were taken from Ballymullen barracks in Tralee to Ballyseedy crossroads and tied to a landmine, which was exploded while the survivors were machine-gunned. One of the prisoners, Stephen Fuller, was blown to safety and although he was badly injured, escaped to tell of the event afterwards. O'Duffy's troops in nearby Tralee had prepared nine coffins but could only find eight bodies on the scene.

This was followed by other similar incidents with mines within twenty four hours of the Ballyseedy killings. Five more political prisoners were blown up near Killarney and another four at Caherciveen. Another political prisoner, Seamus Taylor was taken from Kenmare jail to Ballyseedy woods and shot dead on the orders of the founder of Fine Gael. It has since emerged over the years, that the blue shirts beat the prisoners, tied them to explosives and then killed them. At Cahirciveen, the prisoners were shot in the legs before being blown up to prevent them escaping.

All of these war crimes are the backdrop to the blue-shirt Fine Gael collusion with the British, in the wholesale slaughter, by no warning explosions of 33 innocent Dublin and Monaghan civilians. All of this activity was taught to them by the departing British Army, who continues to sponsor them to the present day, to prevent a real Irish Republic being established, while the tactics have been passed on to the Americans by the British in places like Iraq and Afghanistan.

Irish workers and people of no property can expect no mercy then, after the corporate and bankers sponsor Fine Gael to power on the pending Irish election to ensure that ordinary Irish people continue to bailout the fraudulent banks and enable corporate fascism to run smoothly in the Irish scum state. Students protesting for a third level education can expect the continuation of being battered out of the country by blue shirt fascist police, while Irish republicans can expect more torture by the blue shirt heavy gang.

INDYMEDIA IRELAND IPCALYPSE DESPITE CYBERSPACE CONSERVATION



Indymedia Ireland have in fact already banned and censored the Pink Panther, Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck !


Mighty Mouse, Batman and Popeye  “not recommended”and Bugs Bunny comic books “doubtful” !










On February 2nd at 4 a.m., Indymedia Ireland will run out of cyberspace and IP addresses to ban or censor in Ireland. At least that’s what an Internet service provider is forecasting, based on a rate of about one million addresses every four hours.Technically Indymedia Ireland's time is up, despite its efforts to leave the minimum number of Irish footprints on Cyberspace. According to one of the numerous native Irish users who have had ISP's banned by Indymedia ireland, they won't be missed,  " They  joined the Wankers Club years ago anyway" she said. We tried to interview them on the matter at their offices, just recently located after years of being a top Irish secret mystery. Such a secret in fact that many suspected for years that it was located beside the Thames. Unfortunately we could only interview them through their letter box using a loud speaker.

We interviewed one of their censors called Iris through the letter box, who apparently is and Indymedia Ireland censor and a cybespace conservationist, who when asked about astroturfing in Ireland, appeared to be prone to bouts of over-excitement. We can, however, only speculate as to what exactly it is about astroturfing, provoked her to suggest that most of the censored Indymedia Ireland articles on astroturfing campaigns on all of Ireland's bogs, would be much improved by supplements with titles such as "Water Sports: Golden sand, Golden sun, Golden shower".


Please readers, don't misunderstand Ireland, no people alive, enjoy water more then the Irish. Indeed so much so, that some usually shower seven or eight times on a non-soft day, more at weekends. And while I can fully appreciate the thrill that mounting a jet-ski like Iris does at Indymedia Ireland might give, as the beast between her  legs provokes a shattering, water-borne climax, I cannot fathom as to how it is connected with astroturfing issues raised, during the interview through Indymedia Ireland's office letterbox..

As we expressed my doubts to Iris through the lettebox, she became increasingly agitated. We had, she insisted, completely missed the point. The debate with Indymedia Ireland became increasingly acrimonious until, incredibly, a furious Iris pulled down her shorts and proceeded to urinate into an expensive Jasper Conran vase in their office, while another of Indy's censor apprentices lay on the floor licking his lips for abit of action.

I hardly need to add that Iris has been sent home pending psychiatric evaluation through a rear entrance. While we are prepared to admit a certain sympathy with some Indymedia people's love of the outdoor life, we must insist upon the following, Water sports are deadly in an Irish bog even for bogtrotters like Indymedia Ireland but then she was simply explaining Indymedia Ireland's activities and the possibilities of a golden shower while astro-skiing in a real Irish bog.

Meanwhile Hurricane Electric have launched Twitter and Facebook accounts that count down to what has been termed the “Indymedia Ireland IPcalypse.” Every device that is connected to the Internet gets a unique code called an IP address. The current system, IPv4, only supports about 4 billion individual IPv4 addresses. This obviously will mean a lot of work for Indymedia Ireland blocking and banning all of the numerous IP addresses censored in Ireland.

PC World’s Chris Head explained yesterday, some of these addresses are reusable. The problem, however, is that their one-time use counterparts, will eventually lead to the complete depletion of IP addresses and in Indymedia Ireland's case, cyberspace burnout and depletion. It is believed the editors at Indymedia are extremely disappointed, as they had hoped to surpass the record in Irish censorship, already set  by the Irish  Censorship of Publications Board, where Mighty Mouse, Batman and Popeye were “not recommended”and Bugs Bunny comic books were “doubtful”. Such was and still are the views of key members of censorship in Ireland, who continue to censor and ban ISP's of cartoon and freedom creators in Ireland. Indymedia Ireland have in fact already banned and censored the Pink Panther, Mickey Mouse and Donal Duck which were part of a treatise on cartoon production in Ireland.

Creative indigenous Irish artists censored by Indymedia Ireland, foresaw this problem long before Indymedia Ireland did and invented IPv6, a system that that uses both letters and digits to handle 340,282,366,920,938,463,463,374,607,431,768,211,456 addresses, so Indymedia Ireland will have a lot of censorship work on their hands for the near future bearing in mind the mirrors and proxy's used by groups such as Wikileaks.

Hurricane Electric’s doomsday encourages native Irish Internet service providers to transition to that system. Fortunately  IPv4 and IPv6 can co-exist during the transition despite being mostly incompatible. Developers are working on the transition and most operating systems install IPv6 by default. Many Irish writers still have some canned food and bottled water stacked up in case of a feared total blackout censorship of all writers in Ireland, so we should be OK either way, even if Indymedia Ireland ban all native Irish writers who are not part of their fascist collective, styled on the national socialist values of Paul Joseph Goebbels .

Gateway 303: Police Disinformation on UK Indymedia




Sheffield Indymedia | 22.01.2011 22:35 | History | Indymedia | Repression | Sheffield







In the wake of the outing of 4 undercover police infiltrators into the UK activist scene, SchNews, have broken a story about police posts to Indymedia. For over two years suspected police articles and comments have been tracked by filters that are triggered by matching IP addresses, the first comment tracked in this manner dates from August 2008 and the last from January 2011. The full lists of gateway 202 and 303 posts has now been published so activists can do their own analysis on the police posts. A feature article about the abuse has also been published by Birmingham Indymedia, this feature article, first started in in December 2009, has been the subject of a huge amount of internal discussion within UK Indymedia and has been one of the reasons behind the decision to fork the project. Sheffield Indymedia supports the use of anti-abuse features to track and remove disinformation from the site and long argued for the feature article exposing the state abuse to be published.

WHORES IN MEDIA IRELAND GO DOWN AND DIRTY








In a war of words created by British Stalinist type censorship on Irish issues by Indymedia Ireland, the following is a sample from a recent discussion in Ireland on the matter, titled Up Your's Indymedia on Irish Nationalism

[Yes, look at the unpleasant anti-Irish attitudes coming to the fore now they don't get their way:

"so what does this mean are we a nation of racist wankers or are we just stewpit"
Childish, peurile statement. Blatant immaturity


"Historically it was Irish people who were among the most murderous and bloodthirsty footsoldiers of european colonialism"


One small concession to sanity and now the Irish are suddenly painted in such as way that they must have made the Third Reich look like a Sunday School choir. Funny, I can't seem to remember when the Irish Empire was rampaging around the world wielding death and destruction


"Thats cos Ireland is rife with right wing catholic guilt ridden idiots"
If it weren't for the peurile ad hominem"idiots" attack, I would simply respond - "If only!" :


"True a sad day for Ireland"


Yes, citizenship has been tightened up a tiny bit. What a calamity has befallen us :roll:
Not to worry though, it won't stop us being swamped by foreigners in the long run :


"But remember we have prisons, an arms industry, a battered but still very powerful clergy, and the most corrupt mafia like power structure in the EU"


Irish prisons? What sort of barbarous people lock up dangerous criminals? :o Arms factories? My God, we still have a clergy too!!!??
Are we living in the 17th century or something? Where is Robbespierre when you need him?! Obviously Cromwell didn't do his job well enough... :wink:


"Respect and love to all people from everywhere who come to live in Ireland"
But not, it seems, any respect or love for the Irish already living there.


"No Borders No Nations No Deportations"

This one mantra probably sums up their foul, poisonous creed better than I ever could. No loyalty to anything but their own selfish desire to lead a wasted, disappated life of moral squalor. No pride in heritage, no feelings of honour in their nationhood, their history, their people, nothing.

A vapid, empty, souless people.} Comment by - Milesian Contra Mundum}


Most of the few progressives left in Ireland agree, that its was a great idea when, Independent Media Centre, first opened up its website to the Seattle protests in 1999. The website happened after years of alternative media activism. The IMC included "open newswire," an experiment to allow everyone to be a reporter, if they wanted to get involved. The IMC project now however is facing serious problems, particularly in Ireland, which if not addressed by supporters, will eventually destroy the liberating idea, that once was Indymedia in places like Ireland particularly.



Liam O'Flaherty a famous Irish novelist and short story writer, was a major figure in the Irish Renaissance. He was born on the island village of Gort na gCapall, on the Aran Islands in County Galway. Like many people in Ireland, Liam belonged to that illustrious and respectable Irish class, the people of no property. In other words he was born into abject poverty. Liam spoke the Irish language but he was to put it mildly, discouraged by British occupation from doing so or to be more precise, he was generally censored like Indymedia Ireland today tend to do, with Irish writers from that same class of no property of Irish people dis-empowered, who are trying to find their voice in their own country and abroad.



As a result of encountering the same type of censorship that exists with Indymedia Ireland today, Liam O'Flaherty wrote an article titled - The Irish Censorship which was published in U.S.in 1932 but again like Indymedia Ireland today was banned in Ireland. Here is that article;

The Irish Censorship

During the Eucharistic Congress recently held in Dublin, I was staying in a small Kerry town. It has a population of two thousand people and fifty-three public houses. Like almost every other Irish provincial town, it is incredibly dirty and sordid to look upon. In the long back street inhabited by the proletariat I came across human excrement at every second step. There was no vestige of culture in the place. The three local priests were sour and secretive fellows, who confined their activities to the prevention of fornication, dancing and reading. The only pastime permitted to the males was drinking in the fifty-three public houses. The females wandered about with a hungry expression in their eyes. Shortly after my arrival, the priests of the diocese held a mass dinner at my hotel, to devise ways and means for getting me out of the county, as a menace to faith and morals; but without any success.

Then the Eucharistic Congress came along and the populace, exalted by some extraordinary fanaticism, decorated the town with bunting. In the proletarian slum, several altars were erected in the open air. Around these altars some people recited the rosary at night, while others played accordians, danced and drank stout.

However, no attempt was made to remove the dung from the streets, nor any fraction of the dirt which desecrated the walls of the houses and the floors of the taverns. I walked up and down the town, pointing from the bunting to the pavement and saying: "Bunting, dung. Dung, bunting." It was considered sacrilegious.

Unclean offal of any sort, whether in my neighbourhood or in the minds of people with whom I have association, is strongly distasteful to me. So is poverty, ungracious tyranny and ignoble suffering. In my work I have been forced in honesty to hold up a mirror to life as I found it in my country. And, of necessity, the mirror shows the dung about the pretty altars. So a censorship has been imposed upon my work, since it is considered sacrilegious by the Irish Church that I should object to the sordid filth around the altars.

The tyranny of the Irish Church and its associate parasites, the upstart bourgeoisie, the last posthumous child from the wrinkled womb of European capitalism, maintains itself by the culture of dung, superstition and ignoble poverty among the masses. And the censorship of literature was imposed, lest men like me could teach the Irish masses that contact with dung is demoralizing, that ignorance is ignoble and that poverty, instead of being a passport to Heaven, makes this pretty earth a monotonous Hell. The soutaned bullies of the Lord, fortressed in their dung-encrusted towns, hurl the accusation of sexual indecency at any book that might plant the desire for civilization and freedom in the breasts of their wretched victims.

So they have set up a censorship of books in Ireland, and now at Irish ports, whose sole export is porter and men of genius, imported literature which is the product of Irish genius is seized and burned as dangerous contraband. And so tortured Ireland, which a few years ago asked for and received the sympathy of the world's intellectuals, now shows herself as a surly, sick bitch biting the hand that fed her.

But it's not true of Ireland, nor of the mass of Irishmen and Irishwomen. Slaves cannot be blamed for the vices of their masters. I am censored and abhorred by the illiterate ruffians who control Irish life at present. There is hardly a single newspaper in Ireland that would dare print anything I write. There is hardly a bookshop in Ireland that would dare show my books in its windows. There is hardly a library that would not be suppressed for having my books on its shelves. Outside Dublin not a single organization would dare ask me to address them. Yet I claim that Ireland is the only country where I feel of any consequence as a writer. It is the only country where I feel the youth and freshness of Spring among the people, where I feel at one with my mates, where I sing with their singing and weep with their weeping, where I feel that I am a good workman doing a useful job and honored for my craft.

Ireland is no land of barbarians and there are no people in the world who love art and beauty more than the Irish. But alas! Our little island has been stricken with a triple mange of friars, gombeen men and poverty. The soutaned witch-doctors have spread terror among our simple folk and, as one goes through the country, it is pathetic to meet in every little town and village timid, whispering individuals who say, "It's terrible here. I can't get anything to read on account of the priests. Have you got any of your books you could lend me?" In the same way, I was told by an eminent London publisher that he receives bundles of letters from sexually-starved Irishwomen, asking for bawdy books. Booklegging may soon become on a small scale quite as profitable as the prohibition of alcohol made bootlegging in America.

Bawdy books! Bawdy houses! Booze! On these three forms of vulgar entertainment there seemed to be no censorship whatsoever during during the Eucharistic Congress in Dublin. The town was wide open all night and every night. Then the mob went back home to purify themselves by scratching their backs against hair shirts. The militant puritans in Ireland have, in my opinion, staged their last great parade. Before very long they'll be all hurled into the clean Atlantic, together with their censorship, their dung, their bawdy books, their bawdy houses and their black booze. Then we can once more in Ireland have wine and love and poetry; become a people famed, as of old, "for beauty and amorousness."

The International Media Collective network, has a statement of international principles, which unfortunately in Ireland's case, is clearly not being adhered to, most certainly in spirit. The general orientation of IMC internationally, has allowed the network in certain instances, to be hijacked by Government agencies, secret services and right wingers, disguised as liberals in various forms of AstroTurfing(see link for details in Rebels YELL article censored by Indymedia Ireland), which has harmed Indymedia's credibility, functionality and reputation certainly in Ireland along with its massive daily censorship, particularly of authentic indiginous Irish voices of the people of no property.

Irish free speech advocates have been constantly met with the argument from Indymedia Ireland, that their website should not provide any space for right wing or racist views, as an excuse for their massive censorship. The racists they say have their own websites and they do not need to use their limited resources to promote offensive views. Which is all well and good but free speech means exactly that, free speech for everyone no matter how obnoxious their views which can be easily balanced by truth tellers. People can choose to ignore or tolerate, just some of the many choices of a non-fascist society. In Ireland's case though their stated reasons are regarded generally as a poor excuse for a particularly pro-British, counter-revolutionary, reactionary agenda. Recently, particularly high-profile scandals, unmasking undercover Britsh agents, have seriously affected the reputation of Indymedia Ireland, see link;


SCANDAL OF UNDERCOVER BRITISH COPS AND INDYMEDIA IRELAND



The Indymedia project is truly a noble one which has enormous human progress potential. It obviously needs a major overhaul as its Irish example demonstrates clearly. It would be a shame, simply because of a few bad apples to throw out the baby with bathwater in our efforts to clean it up and allow indigenous peoples and cultures such as the Irish have their valid voices in their own lands, along with it being the only possible source of non corporate media.

Below is just a small sample of the outrage and anger caused by Indymedia censorship in Ireland.


"There is a certain amount of satisfaction seeing Indymedia targeted by "activists"

It was obvious that their censorship couldn't go un-noticed for long.
Especially when their "technical experts" don't even know how to hide deleted articles from simple search engine queries - Milesian Contra Mundum

There is a certain car crash comedy dimension to those online clowns.....

I think I'd miss if they every went down... - West

Get over to Indymedia now!
Rotten bastards are deleting messages already - Liam Ó Loinsigh

Get over to Indymedia now!
I really don't know, why you bother wasting your time with that shower of pricks. - Old Believer

Which is to put it bluntly a load of old bollocks as my mum used to say. I responded in a fairly restrained manner considering the bile that was burning the back of my throat.
What a load of hippy pish. There is an organizational hierarchy within the ‘creative spontaneity’ or whatever drivel you want to call it.This is mostly made up of those people who have the cash and spare time to be able to


Actually, that comment will be removed, because it's editorial policy at Indymedia to not allow posters comment about their editorial policy (i.e. censorship).

These people are clinically insane, and I wouldn't waste my energy on them. - Liam Ó Loinsigh

What exactly is Indymedia? Could someone explain? - Sláinge Óg

Re: Place your bets! Indymedia and censorship
In theory, a place for the Left, antiwar, alternatives etc to discuss the world and put forward their opinions. In reality, an SWP talking shop full of hypocrisy (especially in regard to free speech), anti-Christian and anti-Irish racism, and some of the most bizarre characters you'll ever have the displeasure to meet. - Ciotog

Old Believer
Get over to Indymedia now!
I must say their censorship would make comrade stalin proud, They can't stomach even the slighest criticism of their warped agenda.

Re: Get over to Indymedia now!
Anyone know where these Indymedia bastards have their Dublin offices? - Liam Ó Loinsigh


:Don't think anyone knows where their offices are. For such a supposedly pro free speech organisation, they are remarkably secretive, and very keen on silencing those who don't agree with their warped view on society.- Liam Ó Loinsigh

I think they've identified some of our IPs, so our messages are deleted.

Indymedia is centered on an open publishing process that allows anybody to contribute

Re: Place your bets! Indymedia and censorship
That's a joke, lad. They're trying to mislead you. I promise you that if you made an article not fitting into the far-left Trotsykist ethos, it would be savaged by a hippy pot-smoker and then deleted post-haste by the moderators. Opposing viewpoints are not welcome in Lala-land. - Ciotog

Haha, I know it probbaly is. They meant to say,

Indymedia is centered on an open publishing process that allows anybody to contribute AS LONG AS YOU AGREE WITH US, OR WOULD LIKE TO CONVEY A SIMILIAR POINT.. - Sláinge Óg

You've hit the nail on the head Slainge; that's exactly the way it is at Indymedia. Go there yourself and start reading threads. - Ciotog

The folks at Indymedia are, by majority, mental. I wouldn't touch that site with a barge pole in fear of contracting some sort of brain fever. - Bona Na Croin

I wouldn’t usually waste my time at indymedia - don’t rate it at all.

Comment by Beano

Indymedia.ie censorship
Filed under: an príomhbhóthar
Has anyone else tried to post an article or comment on an article at Indymedia.ie lately only to find that the editorial staff deletes it almost immediately?

If so, I would like to hear from you here as a comment or via email.

Thanks,
micheailin

And duly deleted by the Indymedia police. Honestly, some people have no sense of humour. - Joe Taxpayer"

P.S I will submit this article later to Indymedia in Ireland, UK, London and Scotland if they are tree to form , Indymedia Ireland is the only one who will censors it, which is particularly galling for Irish people all over the world who suffer from draconian censorship daily, since the foundation of their British compliant scum state. All of the leading writers in Ireland from James Joyce, Patrick Kavanagh, Flann O'Brien, Beckett, Liam O'Flaherty, etc., have been banned and censored

PHUCK THE SCUM STATE WANKERS CLUB I'M VOTING HORSE OUTSIDE










Original Song:
"Winter Wonderland"

Original  Parody Title:

"Wanker Wonderland"
Parody

Prices soared, homes were booming
But off-shored-- jobs left, dooming
A buy at the height,
--We're busted tonight--
Living in a wanker wonderland

Gone away are the paychecks
Here to stay are the trainwrecks
We hear the sweet tunes
From gas-bag buffoons
Living in a wanker wonderland

In our pup tent we can suck down home brews
And remember money broker Cowen--
And his no-down loan that brought the bad news
That sent us to the street in our home town

Later on we inquire
How our dream so backfired
We followed the rules
We're feelin' like fools
Living in a wanker wonderland

[ Instr break: sticks tapping smoldering trash barrell ]

On the tv boneheads yap "It's better!"
And pretend that jobs are everywhere
They have lots of fun with that dead letter--
While seniors' Wal-Mart greetings fill the air!

Upbeat news, laughs and quipping
--While your ass gets a whipping--
They'll frolic and play 'till we go away

Living in a wanker wonderland, (oooh..)
Living in a wanker wonderland, (yeah..)
Living in a wanker wonderland! (splat.)





The bulk of the banksters money went to Fianna Fail for several election but the bulk of the corporate muck money, now flows from party to party, which includes Fine Gael and Labour. Either way the same targets are achieved, bigger profits for corporations. The sums of money thrown at these Irish politicians, particularly Fine Gael for the next election are mind boggling even by gombeen Fianna Fail standards.

The only real difference between Fine Gael and Labour is money. Each of these corrupt parties, is a political influence machine, that now vies for dominant power in a coalition, because the one with the most power, carries with it vast sums of corporate money. The longer a party is in office, as in the case of Fianna Fail for example,  the more connections it makes, the more it's net worth to the corporations in the long run, the more the rewards can be spread to the different cumann of the party. There is currently a real, nasty fight between Fine Gael and Labour for this corporate muck money.

Of course Labour have their "interest group" the unions but these are now mostly so corrupt, that the only money Labour will see from the trade unions, is the dirty money siphoned and laundered from offshore bankster's accounts, using the corrupt Union leadership as a front for money laundering and peddling influence, particularly in the area of oiling the clean out of State pensions, after the next election.

The millions spent through the Unions to help get Labour elected, is matched only by the millions spent trying to get their ear as soon as they are in office. Irish unions however, cannot out-spend the off-shore banksters, neither can they offer the millionaire retirement packages, given to Fianna Fail. The corporate retirement packages offered to corrupt Irish politicians, prove where the next Irish Government minds will be focussed while in office and whose interests will be looked after, which is certainly not the ordinary people of Ireland under present arrangements.

Unions and the Irish Labour party have almost nothing  to show for their decades-long crooked relationship. Union membership continues to shrink as do jobs, wages and benefits for Irish workers a crooked set up, if ever there was one.  Nevertheless the “lesser of two evils” approach to Irish politics, currently being adopted by many prospective Irish voters, are Labour and Sinn Fein. The evil politicians of Fianna Fail and Fine Gael, being a no win choice not just for working class voters but also the shrinking middle-class with back breaking crooked mortgages. So both Labour and Sinn Fein can expect particularly vitriolic attacks during the next campaign, as establishment corporate parties fear the erosion of their respective party bases.

Ideally of course to get out of this vicious, dead-end cycle, real trade unionists could unite their strength with parties like Sinn Fein to form coalitions, that promote respective candidates, that are 100 percent funded by working people, to govern 100 percent in the interest of working people and the people of no property. All other roads lead back to dirty corporate money running another corrupt Irish Government.

The other alternative in the Irish scum state after the next election, is being ruled by a 21st century version of corporate fascism in the guise of a sanitized blue shirt alliance with corrupted corporate labour. In the 1930s Germany was ruled by a 20th century version of corporate fascism. Same result, different victims. Irish politicians will then give public money once again to the corporations and the state pension to the offshore banksters. Banks and corporations will give a portion of this back to crooked Irish politicians. A large share of it will go to Fine Gael party coffers if elected, to protect their politicians. Ireland ias apparently ruled by gangsters and crooks at every strata of Irish society. There is endemic, out of control fraud and theft at all levels of both local and national Irish government.

I'm voting for the Horse Outside !
