Imagine the outcry if Islamic State did do that?
Republican paramilitary funeral – On the Streets of the UK
The granddaughter of veteran republican Peggy O’Hara has defended a paramilitary display at her funeral.
The fact that this took place on the streets of the UK ( Yes Londonderry is part of the UK ) and nothing was done to stop this outrage is beyond my comprehension. Men & women wearing paramilitary uniforms and shots being fired over the coffin – Hello , am I missing something here?
Imagine if Islamic State held a similar funeral for one of their own on the streets of London or Manchester.
There would be absolute pandemonium and the whole country would be in uproar and demand action. MP,s and Newspaper’s would have a field day and every man and his dog would have an opinion.
But what’s the difference between the IRA/INLA/Republicans & Islamic state?
They are all drenched in the blood of the innocent and are responsible for some of the most outrageous terrorist attacks of the past century and yet they are permitted to hold this paramilitary funeral on British soil.
Why aren’t the rest of the UK outraged at this event and yelling from the rooftops?
Have they forgotten the decades of misery and slaughter of the innocent the INLA/IRA and other Republican groups were responsible for and the agony of those families destroyed for the ideology of a United Ireland?
There has been hardly any mention on the BBC News ( England at least ) about this story and only a brief story on BBC Northern Irelands website. Why?
They can’t seem to get enough of IS and other Islamic terrorists and yet they seemed to all but ignore this criminal act on the streets of the UK.
Pride in the Union
The people of Northern Ireland have suffered more than any for the right to remain part of the UK and we are rightly proud of the Union. We have lived through decades of IRA terrorism and the legacy of the troubles still haunts and dominates our daily lives. But the people of mainland Britain ( excluding Scotland ) seemed to have abandoned and forgotten us and all but ignore our right to celebrate and embrace (peacefully and lawfully ) our culture and loyalist heritage.
The British government seem happy to help Sinn Fein/IRA eradicate our culture & traditions and yet they stand by and watch as these INLA/ Republican terrorist carry out a paramilitary style funeral on the streets of the UK. These double standards are a disgrace and its time the people of the UK recognised the loyalty we have always shown to the British establishment and the sacrifices the people of Northern Ireland have made to ensure that Northern Ireland remains part of the UK!
“Mr Campbell said the police had questions to answer.”
“Police need to take robust action against all who break the law. It seems however that the police are treating some groups in some areas with kid-gloves thus leaving the impression that there is a two-tier justice system,” he said.
Peggy O’Hara said her granny planned this funeral and her son Patsy O’Hara died. He gave his life for Ireland.
Well if that is the cause why didn’t they hold her funeral in Dublin , instead of the streets of Northern Ireland – which is part of the UK.
