The love Ulster marchers weren't the victors down in Dublin they weren't 'the power' or 'the conquerors', look how that went...There is a very great difference that Im surprised that someone of your obvious intelligence is choosing to ignore, and that is that one side are the current victors of history, and one side history's defeated. For a Nationalist march to pass a Unionist area means very little, since the six counties are still part of the UK, British Crown law is still enforced by British armed forces. The British state, to which the Unionists give their allegiance, is the de facto power. What can a Nationalist march say? That one day, maybe, things might be different?
On the other hand, a Unionist march past a Nationalist area is very very powerful indeed. It says: We are the power. We are the conquerors, and you are the conquered. Maybe, some day in the future, things might be different, but for you, and probably for your children too, reality will be British reality.
Some 'non-sectarian Republican' you are!So everyone says the car incident was a sectarian attack, have u got a single link from a politician or community worker or representative that says so? so much of your bull has been discredited here that No one can simply take your lying word for it.
Nor can you produce a single link that anyone is sugesting that the attack on the cricket grounds was sectarian
You are a liar

Link?Lol, of course the Protestants don't start trouble. My friend was just jumped in Lurgan town 4 days ago trying to get money out of a bank machine after a night out, and was asked "What the ******************** are you looking at you Fenian bastard".
But you are right, its all Catholics.
I think an MLA elected by the people of the area where the attack happened is a reputable source, don't you?No sorry, doesn't wash. Trusting Spratt is like trusting you. I could say the Cumbria shootings in England of a month ago were "suspected sectarian attacks", but it doesn't make it accurate.
Maybe some people are learning that when you riot and wreak you get your own way you people set the standard.There's a little myth that does the rounds in Nationalist communities in Northern Ireland (another one, I know!) that normal, decent law-abiding Unionists go a bit doolally over The Twelfth and randomly attack, beat and murder catholics without provocation before returning to their usual mindset around July 13th/14th.

Hopefully things will die down over the next few days and protestants in Northern Ireland can get on with their lives without worrying about getting attacked.
Silly season indeed.
I'd like a PSNI statement, newspaper report or TV article.I think an MLA elected by the people of the area where the attack happened is a reputable source, don't you?
What exactly do you want?
A taped confession from the driver on youtube?? I'm good, but I'm not that good!
For republicans, the 'silly season' is a daily thing, the 'silly season' as put by BC is our efforts to oppose British occupation of the North East of this island, and our struggle to do whatever it takes to show the Unionists, Brits, freestaters and Provo reformists that we will NEVER EVER surrender nor compromise in pursuit of our objectives.
We want the British connection broken, for the British government and all its tentacles to be removed from this country and for their to be a republic established based on the one proclaimed in Easter 1916.
Never will we water down our pursuits by recognising any of the illegal institutions of the illegal Northern puppet state, so get used to it, we havent gone away ya know and never will.
As far as I know normal, decent law-abiding Unionists get the fúck out of the country come July, leaving their neaderthal comrades to coat trail, spew bile and generally cause as much chaos as possible for the rest of us poor bástards as they can to their hearts contentment.There's a little myth that does the rounds in Nationalist communities in Northern Ireland (another one, I know!) that normal, decent law-abiding Unionists go a bit doolally over The Twelfth and randomly attack, beat and murder catholics without provocation before returning to their usual mindset around July 13th/14th.
Can you find me a route from Ballysillan to Belfast city centre which doesn't pass a Nationalist area?Rossnowlagh, every year not a peep yet the OO still want to March through Republican Ardoyne a place that has felt the brunt of loyalist killings and attacks during the war.
