Probably. And old Leon never had much problem with mass killing and torture either.


From Irish perspective, Brian Goold Verschoyle was abducted by NKVD in Barcelona and taken back to Moscow. He died in gulag.

Can't recall immediately what his crime was. Think he had married a Russian woman.
This according to Wiki

The flash point was a disagreement with the Soviet ambassador in Valencia, for whom he was working. His increasing anti-Stalinist views may have been a factor in his split with Moscow, as he quickly realised the Soviet Union had no interest in a world revolution which would be independent of Moscow's control. His letters to his family in Ireland reveal a growing sympathy for the anti-Stalinist Workers' Party of Marxist Unification (POUM).

In April 1937 he was asked to report to Barcelona harbour to repair a ship’s radio. When he embarked he was escorted to the radio cabin and the door was locked behind him. He had in effect been kidnapped and when the ship arrived in USSR he was immediately transferred to the Lubyanka (KGB) prison in Moscow. He was eventually sentenced to eight years for counter‑revolutionary Trotskyist activities.

Interesting RTE documentary on the Gould Verschoyle brothers.

"Flesh and Blood", if you are interested, a google search will bring you to a site where it can be wathed

Kommunist pretends Mick O'Riordan et al did not commit war crimes and you excuse them. So now we know the difference.

Probably not much crime, but a lot of turning away and saying nothing when a "comrade" was executed for nothing much.


Micko went on to become Ireland's Token Commie, so stalinist that he became a safe provider of info to the state on any real leftie trouble-makers.

Funeral service of, and tributes to, the Irish brigadista Michael O'Riordan (1917-2006)


All his comrades turned up in 2006 for the funeral or wrote a line! Bertie Ahern for FF and Dub-ba-lin .. President Mary McAleese .. Labour Party President Michael D Higgins (ha ha) ... David Begg ... former Labour Party leader Ruairi Quinn (ha ha ha) ... Cuba's Ambassador to Ireland, Noel Carrillo .. Kader Asmal, founder of the Irish Anti-Apartheid Movement.


Mr Ahern said he had conveyed his good wishes to survivors of the International Brigades when they held their annual general meeting in Dublin just last October. Among those survivors was Michael O'Riordan to whom the Taoiseach paid tribute as one of those who was willing to make an enormous sacrifice in the fight for democracy in Spain in the 1930s. Michael O'Riordan was subsequently honoured by the Spanish Government for that commitment. The Taoiseach described the late Mr O'Riordan as a fearless fighter for the labour movement throughout his life and conveyed his sympathy to....

To be fair to O'Riordan, he did get a lot of stick in Ireland. They tried to get him sacked from his job as a CIE bus conductor. His wife was a devout Catholic. They had the CPI well boxed in by then. But the CPI helped Sinn Fein when SF were at their lowest - by getting them the use of Ballyfermot Hall to hold their Ard Fheis. It is conceivable without that help, SF would have perished.

It is not the source but that the Kommunist clown acts like you and your silly lmaos. Fool.
