I'll get back to this in more detail later, but how can the Loyalists use Irish pirates from 1500 years ago to gain sympathy for violence from around the world in the case of a United Ireland being voted for?<quoted text>I was purely making about that you were going on about the hardships of the Irish when their track record as been to great in it's self....You mention the Irish pirate and the treatment of the blacks in the US by Irish immigrants how is that going to get sympathy,well firstly I was just making a point about the down trodden poor Irish when in reality they have been just as bad as everyone in the past and secondly to be honest how many people know of these two things anyway,,,I can't see why they can't use the black treatment as when never stop hearing about the fecking potato famine all around the same time,oh they weren't just beating a few blacks they were murdered ,so there's a race issue there for openers...So your logic is no one would be interested in the murder and land theft of the Scots and Welsh because how long ago but it's ok to demonise when it happened a couple of hundred years ago to the Irish,in my opinion what go's round comes round,and no time limit in that case...you can't pick and choose because it ends up biting you in the arse
Also I thought we were just talking about this issue i.e the loyalists actions if a united Ireland happens.
No need to go into the history of everything, you've brought up the potato famine not me, along with other things. Would you be surprised to know that most Irish people never discuss the potato famine? The English seem to feel more awkward around the subject than us, it isn't an issue over here at all.
