Because ADM and a few others on this site are obsessed with and have a deep hatred for SF and also for the six county nationalist community. It is a strange phenomenon indeed to side with foreign occupiers who have killed many of their countrymen, maybe one of them would like to explain. You know who you are.the community that suffered the most in the conflict was the N.I Catholic/Nationalist. They suffered the most deaths. Yes the 'Ra were responsible for over 1000 deaths too. The N.I nationalists voted for S.F- and should be respected for it. Also what does AntiDist poster think of the Glennane Gang?
Glennane gang- a mix of UDR soldiers, RUC policemen and UVF. Respectable by day but at night roaming Mid Ulster dispensing their "justice".
Why should Nationalist victims forget about this. But there is a hierarchy of victims. The Catholic/Nationalists are the forgotten ones if you ask me. Not the UK army soldiers.
What Northern Ireland Catholics do in Northern Ireland is no business of any Stater. You were not interested in us in 1921. Nor were you in 1969. If you approve of Northern Ireland Catholics being murdered, that is your business. Please do not expect us to be equally unconcerned.The reports speak for themselves. Before posters reply with examples of DUP hypocrisy they should remember that the DUP are not knocking on doors in the ROI looking for a vote. If they were they would get the same response as given to SF representatives.
Paul Murphy might as well join SFFound it.
11/10/14, The Journal, and I quote,
"Socialist Paul Murphy beats Sinn Féin to win Dublin South-West by-election".
The poor SF wasters!
No chance!Paul Murphy might as well join SF

What did their friend Downey do and what did 'soldier' F do?
The US army charged Lft William Calley with the My Lai massacre, even though they lost 59000 soldiers fighting in South Vietnam.
You have missed the point and gone off on a rant that has nothing to do with your original post or my reply to it.The truth commission is perfect for SF as the IRA were full of waiters from Barcelona - "I know nothing" - Even Adams claims that Austin Stack gave him the names of those he believed had killed his father - Adams expects people to believe that Austin Stack knew the names but Adams didn't. Adams probably put it that way (as he did with the letter he received showing a list of alleged IRA paedophiles) so he couldn't be accused of being a grass or a tout. Adams is happy to "Pass on information" from others but not from himself. If Stack had the names why would he need Adams to pass them on to the PSNI. Even MMcG denied that he knew who killed Stack
Sink fein always the victimI note there are no positive threads wrt-SF the third largest party in the country and a real all-Ireland party, unlike the far-right partitionist FF/FG and the pretend Labour party.
Are only negative threads about SF allowed on "Ireland's premier political forum"?
You lot bottled it in 1916 and again in 1920s. it's the reason the north was not taken into account by either side when the treaty debates in the Dail happened.What Northern Ireland Catholics do in Northern Ireland is no business of any Stater.

P.S. Sinn Fein should not be knocking doors in Eire. The politics of Eire should be left to Staters. If Sinn Fein were not trying to be "respectable" in the eyes of Eirefolk, they would be giving better leadership and service to the oppressed Catholic people of Northern Ireland.
Stick to facts. Many areas of Northern Ireland were very active during the War of Independence. But you Staters like to tell lies to cover up your treachery.You lot bottled it in 1916 and again in 1920s. it's the reason the north was not taken into account by either side when the treaty debates in the Dail happened.
