I ask the questionsin the title because most of Ireland’s professional (paid) commentators appear to think so.
In 1914 such people fooled scores of thousands of Irishmen into enlisting in the British forces to
kill Germans and Austrians who posed no threat to Ireland, and to kill Turks – the peopl descended from men who had sent food free to Ireland, a country that was self-sufficient in food, shipped daily to England under the protection of British bayonets.
Some mercenary gunmen, comrades of those who murdered unarmed demonstrators in Derry
will be parading on Friday wearing shamrock.
Oblivious of the irony they will do so to the strains of “Let Erin Remember”.
A slow march, keeping pace with the halfwits and dim wits who don’t understand its lyrics-
“Let Erin remember the days of old
ERE HER FAITHLESS SONS BETRAYED HER”
