Peter King, IRA supporter and enthusiastic counter-terrorism advocate

Mar 9, 2011 Full story: www.washingtonpost.com 55

In 1985, the Irish government boycotted the St. Patrick's Day parade in New York City, the biggest celebration in the Irish American calendar. The cause of its umbrage was Peter T. King, that year's grand marshal and someone the Irish government said was an "avowed" supporter of a terrorist organization, the Irish Republican Army.

<quoted text> never read so much crap. Maybe this statment had some milage back in the 80s but not today. We in NIreland have moved on from the **** your talkin about. Both sides of the community have made massive steps forward towards peace. Are police force the psni (not the RUC}come from both sides of the community which is a hugh step forward. Yes there was wrongs done on both sides, i know first hand iv lived the nitemare. But we now need to work together for the sake of ae children so we never fall back to the dark old days of pain death. We will never let the hate you have in your retric take us back. We have still some problems with the so called real IRA but they are fools caught in time who cant live in a peaceful ireland. They will die out and my kids and there kids will live together and hopefully in time will go to school together, that would be the final tabboo finnished. So please if ya have nothing constructive to say say nothing.
Blow me.

up, is more your style!! I think you need to stop getting bogged down with Irish history books and try looking to the future. I have read all your threads and i aggree with nearly all comments. It dosnt sit easy with me either but raking up the past will never bring peace. If you had lived in a troubled country maybe you would have more understanding. I was born in Belfast in 1967 and i can tell you that during my lifetime iv seen pain and suffering in the public and in my personal life. I really dont want to go into it here with you but Harvey today here in Belfast and in the rest of the provence people on both sides have taken this peace thing and they will not let go. Do you not think we in N ireland deserve some of what you have in your country? Take care and take my advice.

Another septic tank (yank) obsessed by the wedding?

I guess you've already proven your abject stupidity and ignorance, might have guessed you were a fan of the royals.

Tell me, what freedoms were they fighting for?
What freedoms were denied to catholics?
As for your claims people who bomb schools aren't terrorists, thats fine. It means you're the moral equivalent of the people who say the 9/11 hijackers weren't terrorists either. At least those terrorists had the decency to go after adults.
What freedoms???

Are you fucking retarded?
No, the loads of civil rights marches in NI were for fun, not CIVIL RIGHTS...
How about the freedom to govern themselves in their own country, for starters!

Catholics couldnt even vote for a while!

Additionally, the guy you replied to said that some groups (Real I.R.A.) did "delve into terrorism" while the most prominent and active group (Provisional Irish Republican Army) only went after military and paramilitary targets. Civilians were never targeted, unlike with the Loyalist militias...

Since you need a history lesson, here you go. The Northern Ireland Civil Rights Association had 5 PRIMARY demands:

1. one man, one vote which meant extension of the local government franchise from ratepayers to all those over 21
2. an end to gerrymandering which meant Unionists were elected even in districts with Catholic majorities
3. an end to discrimination in housing
4. an end to discrimination in jobs
5. the disbandment of the B-Specials, the Ulster Special Constabulary, which many viewed as sectarian

go choke on a crumpet, you bigot.

Perhaps you can tell me when catholics couldn't vote? That should be funny considering US 'democracy' at the time.

Perhaps you can explain how the manchester bombing was against military targets since you claim PIRA never attacked civillians? No doubt the twin towers were valid military targets in your opinion too?

Perhaps you can explain what role in the military the thousands of people knecapped by PIRA had? After all, they only went after military targets didn't they?

Perhasp you can explain how the catholics in NI were denied freedom to govern themselves in their own country like you claim?

Looks like you're another retarded American who can't deal with the truth. Ireland became part of the UK when the Irish parliament voted for it to become part of the UK (twice). Deal with it.

ON the other hand you're obviously terrorist loving scum so I doubt you'll be able to answer rationally. You can't even think rationally.

I'm glad over 23 million Americans watched the Royal Wedding. It created over 5 billion for the UK.

it's terrifying to read the stupid, bigoted hate-filled posts by imbecilic plastic paddies who support the ira.
They offer no facts because they can't. Their stupid, racist support of terrorists is indoctinatred into them by their equally moronic parents.
the FACT- a term that Harvey and his boyfriend Mr Bill probably don't recognise- is that Northern Ireland voted in democratic elections to remain part of Britain.

If only it was that simple Mr American!! Yes your right the I.R.A are freedom fighters. But Northern Ireland is also the home to Northern Irish prodestants who are worth the same as Northern Irish catholics. Both sides are victims of the British idea going back hundreds of years. Today we all live with the past as best we can. Thank God we have a peace we are all building on. I know the so called real IRA are trying thier best to take us back to the dark old days but they will die out in time. I hope you try and learn a little about a subject before you decide that a whole community of prodestants are lackys or whatever else you think they are. I have lived through the troubles and i can assure you both sides have suffered enough.

I agree Ray. It's astonishing that, now NI has hopes of a lasting peace, hate merchants like anne roddy who live thousands of miles away want to support violence, knowing they will never suffer its repercussions.

Its easy to call for violence when you stay thousands of miles from it.

Thast why anyone who wants revenge for decades of US funded terrorism in Northern Ireland can get their own back:

A typically dim, probably drunken Brit, you seem unable to process the fact that discrimination against Catholics in the North is an established fact. You keep raising your pint and demanding "Proof, dammit, PROOF!" of this well-known fact. What next, loser? Will you demand "proof" that the sky is blue, that the grass is green, or that water is wet?
Your nasty little country still has possession of a large chunk of Ireland which DOES NOT BELONG TO YOU. Does that make it clearer to you now? You're still holding on to your parthetic "Empire" which hasn't existed for decades. Give it up, and stop victimizing and lording it over the Irish people. Give Ireland back to the Irish. And go have another pint and cry into it.
'Boo-hoo, wheh's ah EMPAH, maytee? Eh? Wheh did it GO?'
;)
Give North America back to the native Indians, you British colonist planter.

PS: So glad about all the so-called "Americans" who were killed in the 9/11 attacks, and the Lockerbie bombing.
