San Francisco honours Martin McGuinness

My bold... they only need Caracas & Havana to get the lot of dysfunctional state capitals covered.
Looking at this level of lunacy one can only hope that the next "BIG ONE" wipes all these wastes of oxygen out …
snip "The 'Big One' is a hypothetical earthquake of magnitude ~8 or greater that is expected to happen along the SAF. Such a quake will produce devastation to human civilization within about 50-100 miles of the SAF quake zone, especially in urban areas like Palm Springs, Los Angeles and San Francisco".

To "Wasteofrations" yes I did and to "[U]Le_addeur_noir[/U]" , needless to say I haven't had a response, funnily enough nor am I expecting one, these creatures can never justify their points of view.
Well done that man!.
 
I have no idea how much of a participant he was. Or the whose who of IRA leadership. So apologies in advance.
Although I despise the piece of evil murdering scum, if nothing else he was never regarded as part of the paedophile child rape enthusiasts as his counterparts were . It was a known cultural aspect of Belfast catholic societies in the 60s and 70s wherby the young girls were "broken in" by "uncles" and some of the young men treated in the same way. Gerry Adams is a classic public example but he shied off advertising his information on his younger brother (convicted child rapist) and the rest of their family acknowledgements that this was general practice at the time. The chief objection to a Belfast "Irish culture" quarter alongside the Titanic quarter in Belfast was the fear that it would invite child sex tourists.
 
I saw this today and thought it would be appropriate for this thread.

Old joke in Woodbourne, a female virgin a girl who could run faster than her father, male virgin a boy who could run faster than the father. Not far from the truth.

You are correct. Lumping us all in together would backfire bigly. Going after a few cnuts in San Francisco would be a better use of time and energy. If you patiently explain what kind of a douche this fella was and what happened to the UK during the troubles you will win more converts.
This comment of yours and my outrage at reading about this posthumous honour to Martin McGuinness is the reason I finally joined arrse. It's understandable why we tend to tar with the one brush but, as you say, it always backfires in the long run. I believe the Mayor has apologised for the offence she caused and I reckon she deserves some credit for that. Hopefully, one day, the so called 'peace movement' over there will get around to apologising for what they did to South Viet Nam and your veterans of that grievously misrepresented war. In the meantime, for next year, if the Mayor would like to posthumously honour a Northern Irish Catholic from a staunchly Irish Republican area of the province, she might consider James Magennis (the surname is similar but, fortunately, that is where the resemblance to the other Mcguinness ends).

James Magennis VC

Kudos to brave men and women on both sides of the political divide in Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic who set aside their differences for the greater good. Sadly, it seems like Magennis got a raw deal after the war, more tar brushing at work I fear (on both sides!). By the way, wearing a British uniform in Belfast during WW2 made you a target of opportunity for the pro-Nazi IRA.

As for you "Yanks", I was brought up in Ulster and taught to honour and respect the fact that you came over to fight the good fight. My parents remembered the American GIs with the deepest affection and regard. In more ways than one, your people literally gave their blood to help us out. LEST WE FORGET!

Clearly, what we are getting out of California and the Democratic Party today is anything but 'American'. It is a form of leftist dementia (and, at its worst, it's downright socialist fascism) and it knows no international boundaries. Not fashionable these days to be pro-American, of course, but in Northern Ireland we have always been unfashionable -- and we have long memories, sometimes too long. But I like to remember that Americans, Brits and, yes, a lot of Irish republican guys from south of the border fought in a common cause.

In the case of James Magennis, I feel very sad that it was not until recently that we honoured him as we should have at the time. Perhaps the Mayor of San Francisco can help redress this next year by mentioning his heroism as an outstanding example of 'courageous service in the military' conducive to peace. Note also that Magennis VC was courteous enough to give the hull of the Takao a bit of clean before he blew it up! That's the Royal Navy for you. You'd never get quality 'service' like that from the PIRA! I've seen the mess they leave behind first hand -- they are not nice people and they are most certainly not representative of Irish valour (much as they would like to claim they are).

And, while I'm at it, thanks and all honour to the Americans of today's generation who wear the uniform and whose 'courageous service in the military' is trashed by lefties and others who ought to know better!
 
It seems that the City of San Francisco has chosen to posthumously honour Martin McGuinness, for his part as a negotiator in the NI peace process - as well as his 'courageous service in the military'.

Not a terrorist organisation. The military. Riiiiiiigggghhhhhtttt.

What pricks thought this was a good idea?
The same pricks who hate trump of course, San Fran is a LW mecca

Maybe you didn't hear about how it's racist to report someone shitting on the streets there, or how an Illegal Alien (José Inez García Zárate- deported 5 times) shoots a woman (Kate Steinle) to death and is found Innocent of murder by a San Fran jury. San Fran tried to shield him from Feds trying to Deport him.

The problem is most Americans know jack shit about our own history and even less about anybody else’s.

The other problem is that the folks my age and younger in Europe/Japan/South Korea seem to have forgotten the tragedy that was WW2 and the Korean War. We have as well. Which makes the seperarion of our respective societies easier, and we are great at loving Splendid Isolationism.

My American, well travelled, family think most Americans think Homer Simpson is the Secretary of State for Culture.
 
Perhaps we should erect a statue of OBL in Parliament Squre in "sympathy".
I was thinking more along the lines of recognising the efforts of the 9/12 terrorists towards air safety...

At least it ain’t a Kardashian! Some of us are well traveled , others have not even left the state they were born in. It is a wide spectrum.

No wonder the city hates Dirty Harry.
 
And soldiers patrolled the streets there also,at times.

My mate says he wants to go back to see the place now, I am in no hurry.

Clinton joined the National Guard,so was excempt from the draft.Lots of men did the same,a perfectly legal way to draft dodge.
Nope, what Bill Clinton did was take a USNR officer slot and then when it took him off 1A status, ran to the UK for school.

And the Guard wasnt an easy dodge, Only after LBJ refused to call up Reserve and Guard for Vietnam was it "Safe" even then some 28,000 served there.

In Korea the 40th (Flaming Assholes)division from California and 45th (Thunderbird) division (Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Oklahoma) were sent to fight, while other NG divisions were sent to West Germany


In Vietnam several battalion level units went to fight including Delta Co 151st infantry Indiana national guard which served as a LRRP unit
