After years of been told Sf/Ra had no involvement in the civil rights movement, they have now claimed to be the leading lights. Shin Flakes chairman has been accused of rewriting history by claiming that the the civil rights campaign in the north came directly from the republican movement's leadership...

Declan Kearney...

the "strategic decision of the IRA and Sinn Féin leaderships at that time".

"Through the medium of the Wolfe Tone Society, the army and Sinn Féin committed to building alliances with other democrats, trade unionists, communists and many others to demand state reform," he writes.

"That culminated in the formation of the NI Civil Rights Association, or civil rights movement in 1967."

He writes that the leadership of both the IRA and Sinn Féin encouraged activists to "organise and support the civil rights movement".

"The role of the IRA and Sinn Féin may well sit uncomfortably with some but the reality is the SDLP didn’t exist in 1967/68."

We have come Full Circle: Northern Nationalism has Politically Remobilised - By Declan Kearney -

Or as RDE calls him Declan Canary...

Sinn Fein is not simply forgetting its own crimes and those of the IRA; it is shamelessly making up the history that suits it.

But additionally it seeks to airbrush out non-violent nationalist achievements.


Not content with dissembling to visitors to Derry about the republican role in the civil rights movement, in a blog last week Declan Kearney MLA - the canary Sinn Fein sends out to see if an idea will run - claimed the civil rights movement in the late Sixties was spearheaded by "the strategic decision of the IRA and Sinn Fein leaderships at that time" to demand reform. This and other gross perversions were rightly described by Brid Rodgers of the SDLP as "outrageous and quite simply untrue".

What was "the intention at the heart of these distortions of history?" she asked. Was "Sinn Fein so ashamed of its own past that it has to rewrite it?"

Brid Rodgers...

The claim that the IRA and Sinn Fein were the key drivers behind the formation of the Civil Rights Movement is outrageous and quite simply untrue.

The intermittent IRA violence of previous decades had done nothing to redress the real grievances of the catholic community.

The canary has some neck ! Even the provos admitted that the IRA was virtually non-existent at the time that the civil rights movement began.
What brigades of the non-existent army did the likes of Austin Curry, Ivan Cooper, John Hume, etc. belong to ?
Provos are becoming more and more like the north korean regime with each passing day.

Did you ever meet a cult without moral pretensions and a propensity for rewriting it's past ?

Provisionalism has lies to tell, to advance the cause.

It is not just civilians that have to be murdered.

The truth also needs to be slaughtered.

First time I've heard of a canary being sent out to see if an idea will run. Declan should have been called Kite.

Why don't you unionists remove the crayons from up yer nostrils and put something together, 'No surrender', 'WATP', 'GSTQ' may look great on the bog's door of your local kneebreakers or OO hall, but it ain't winning over new 'fans'. At least SF is trying to tell the porkies, amazingly without hitting collective redners, meanwhile in the 'blue corner' the DUP is blaming Jedward and Louis Walsh for hurricane Katrina. Have ye even heard of the internet?

What's the collective noun for 'binlids'?

Unionism is in a sorry state.

As lost as a naked Sammy Wilson running around in a meadow, pointing up to the sky summer.

Sinn Fein existed when the Civil Rights movement started- the SDLP did not exist- the Stoops have some neck on them because they are going back to not existing-

Does the O.P do anything else but post about Sinn Féin. Jesus Christ said, take the log out of your eye first than talk about the splinter in your neighbours.

You want a deal with S.F to get the Stormont assembly up and running I presume. I presume. But all you ever do is "slag off " Nationalists- your neighbours.
Why should any Irish nationalist have anything to do with you??? Who wants to be insulted all the time????
