Sinn Fein, the party of Political Correctness

I always used to think of Labour as the party of uber PC values, epitomized by the likes of Aodhan O'Riordan, Ivana Bacik & so on but recently I've had to re-evaluate that.

Sinn Fein seem to be the real party of political correctness & cultural marxism. They've attached themselves to a number of PC causes like travellers rights and the campaign to free the Muslim Brotherhood supporter Ibrahim Halawa from jail in Egypt.

This was further highlighted a few days ago when FF TD Eamon Scanlon raised the issue of muslim immigration with Minister Frances Fitzgerald and was immediately rounded on by SF TDs & councillors on social media who tried to brand him a 'racist' for even asking the question.

Sadly, Scanlon backed down in the face of the Sinn Fein PC bullying campaign and 'apologised' for even asking the question.

Is that what it's come to in Ireland? People can't ask a question without being hounded by SF thought police?

Damn political correctness. We'd be much better without look at how the free people of the independent UK can now tell foreign looking people what they think. . .

But in fairness the FF TDs question is strange out of context.

O'Broin, like all leftists thinks Islam is a 'race'. Hence his nonsensical reference to 'racial profiling'.

They could easily find themselves in Lbours position if they carry on with this horsehit. Is Eoin O'Briian trying to be SFs Ivana?

SF are a party of Ivanas judging from the reaction to Scanlon's question. It's the sort of crap Aodhan O'Riordan would be at.. like saying a blackboard was racist.

Political Correctness: what grown ups call good manners and sulky teenagers of all ages call 'it's not fair and I'm not doing it '.

This idea that PC is simply good manners is the worst excuse there is though it is being increasingly and desperately used by those that seek to encourage/use PC to silence others. Luckily most people are wearing up to such nonsense.

just what we needed - another Shinner thread.
this one from a prominent P.ie blue-shirted Shinnerphobe.

anyway - Political Correctness, like beauty is very much in the eye of the beholder,
& all of the political parties have some policies that are a bit too PC for this beholder.
FG/Labour-Stickies were certainly too PC,
but that's not why this beholder always placed them at the bottom of the ballot paper.

SF have basically abandoned what used to be the republican raison d'etre so need to compensate for that by embracing vacuous liberalism masquerading as "socialist republicanism". God help us ....

Are most of the people on earth racist in particular religion we are right that our god is the real god and your god is just shyte attitude the blacks think the white people are shyte the farmers think the town people are all scum remember the time they used to get the townies out to pick the spuds and weed the turnips and give them a cup of tae and a slice of brown bread and let them off home and if they met them after on the street while in their own company they would pretend not to know them sure the travellers look down on the settled folk as second class why should we work sure dont we have the fanciest weddings and funerals communions and conformations and not to mention the headstones in the grave yard so as far as i can see this racist nonsense is gone too far because we are all racist in one form or another the train goes both ways
