Nelson Mandela proven to be a Communist Party member

After years of lies in which liberal opinion across the world elevated him to sainthood, the terrorist leader Nelson Mandela has been exposed as a member of the Communist Party whose movement – the African National Congress (ANC) – took bomb making lessons from the IRA and was trained in interrogation techniques by the infamous East German Stasi.
A new book by the British historian Prof. Stephen Ellis (former editor of the respected newsletter Africa Confidential) has established the truth by examining previously secret minutes from the South African Communist Party (SACP).  At his trial in 1963, it was alleged that Mandela was a Communist Party member as well as leader of the ANC’s terrorist wing Umkhonto we Sizwe (Spear of the Nation). Mandela denied this at the trial, and his denials have since been echoed by ANC apologists worldwide.
As Prof. Ellis explains:
“I think most people who supported the anti-apartheid movement just didn’t want to know that much about his background. Apartheid was seen as a moral issue and that was that. But if real proof had been produced at the time, some might have thought differently.”
The new book External Mission: The ANC in Exile was launched last week at London’s School of Oriental and African Studies, and can be purchased here.
Prof. Ellis’s startling revelations were reported in the Sunday Telegraph on 9th December.
Now that Mandela’s Communist and IRA links have been proved by the most serious scholarly analysis of the ANC’s history, we can see the truth of the observation by the late Dr Frederik van Zyl Slabbert, who wrote:
“one thing the ‘old’ and the ‘new’ South Africa have in common is a passion for inventing history.  History is not seen as a dispassionate inquiry into what happened, but rather as a part of political mobilisation promoting some form of collective self-interest.”
Who knows what further political myths could be shattered by a dispassionate inquiry into real history?
Such an inquiry might begin by looking at the background of the South African Communist Party leaders who recruited and promoted Mandela.  As the Jewish Journal commented last year:
“Jews were disproportionately found on the front lines of the internal resistance movement.”
These included a series of Communist Party leaders commemorated in this special issue of postage stamps, including Hymie and Esther Barsel, Rusty and Hilda Bernstein, Ruth First and Joe Slovo, who headed both the ANC’s terrorist wing and the Communist Party itself.

Discovered! Iconic photo in Buchenwald is dishonest photo-fakery

By Carolyn Yeager, Dec. 19, 2012

This is the photograph that Allied Supreme Commander General Dwight David Eisenhower ordered, in April 1945, to be posted in every German town and city to show the defeated population the “true meaning of Nazism.”

Was this photo made to order according to Ike’s specifications?

A huge blown-up version then went on tour in the United States for the same purpose, to impress on the American people what evil they had gone to war against; why the sacrifice of blood and treasure was justified! Below: “A traveling exhibit of larger than life size photographs was first shown in St. Louis, MO in summer 1945 and then taken to Washington, DC. 

It was plastered on the front pages of newspapers across the country. Thus it became one of the most iconic images representing WWII and of what later came to be known as “The Holocaust.” The intention was to portray the war as a noble effort to “save the Jews from enslavement and extermination,” just as the equally bloody American Civil War had come to be taught as a war “to free the slaves,” i.e. the Negroes who were not citizens of the country they were living in.

Both are black propaganda campaigns that still use whatever is at hand, whether it be subterfuge or not.

In the case of above photograph, we have learned that the standing figure, the part that makes the biggest, most memorable impact on the viewer, was added later – it was not in the original photo allegedly taken by Private H. Miller of the Civil Affairs Branch of the U.S. Army Signal Corps on April 16, 1945, five days after the “liberation” of the Buchenwald Concentration Camp by American forces.

A blogger, the owner of the Winston Smith Ministry of Truth website who goes by the nickname Black Rabbit, decided a week or so ago, out of curiosity, to order the New York Times newspaper article from May 6, 1945 in which this photo was published, and when it came the photo looked like this:

What a shock to see only an empty dark space, and in the New York Times no less! 

What happened to the standing man? I was the first to bring it to the attention of the participants in the comment section of furtherglory’s Scrapbookpages Blog after Black Rabbit posted a link to the original article there, and then we quickly began noticing the tell-tale signs of FORGERY about this strange figure who had always appeared odd to me standing there naked as he is, but did not arouse enough suspicion amidst all of the onslaught of “holocaust” imagery, stories and news articles with which we are constantly being bombarded. We see what we are supposed to see, what we’re told we’re seeing, and almost always leave it at that. It is also one of the better photo-forgery jobs of holocaust black propaganda – could that be because it was being done at the behest of the Supreme Commander himself?

What really happened in Sandy Hook?

YouTube Text
Published on Dec 18, 2012

Firearms industry expert and part-time police officer Mark S. Mann (pseudonym) lives in Connecticut, just miles from the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary. He's been following the story closely, talking to cops he knows in the area and he will be reporting for us as this story develops. Mark says there are just too many inconsistencies with the 'official' story and he says, "things don't add up." As we all now know, regardless of whether the mass murders of children and adults at Sandy Hook was a false flag operation, or the actions of a lone nut, the establishment intends to use this event to attack the Constitutional rights of law abiding Americans - they're coming after the guns. And just like Stuart Rhodes of Oath Keepers, Mark says, "We will not tolerate any abuses to our 2nd Amendment rights."

Daily Bell article on this subject:

No More Questions to Ask About Sandy Hook Shooting? 
Tuesday, December 18, 2012 – by Staff Report

Was the Sandy Hook Massacre a False Flag Operation? Early Eyewitness Reports From Newton, CT Suggest So ... We will continue to follow this story closely because there are just too many unanswered questions, and the "official" version of what happened on Friday at Sandy Hook Elementary continues to shift and change. – SGTReport [See above YouTube video]

Dominant Social Theme: There are no more questions to ask. Everything is settled.

Free-Market Analysis: There are questions to ask, just as there were at Columbine where hundreds of witnesses saw more than two young shooters and tried, to no avail, to testify about what they witnessed.

The Columbine investigation was closed without addressing this point and many others, including the medical condition of the two young men who live on only in bloody Internet pictures. Viewers have pointed out inconsistencies in the death photos that tend to undermine the idea of a mutual suicide – the official story.

Questions emerged after the recent Aurora cinema shooting in Colorado by suspect James Holmes, as well. Eyewitnesses even questioned whether it was Holmes who actually did the shooting.

And even more questions are being raised following the Sandy Hook Connecticut shooting, as we can see from the above excerpt. Similar questions have been raised on numerous alternative websites including the alternative conservative site Free Republic (in a thread recently pulled).

There have been too many of these shootings with too many official inconsistencies. A better way of getting information to the public has to be worked out.

Otherwise, mistrust will continue to grow within the alternative media community. The more the officials seem to be equivocating, the more this perspective will take hold.

For instance, a list from one "Clare Kuehn" is circulating around the Internet.

What is interesting is that we cannot find the initial list from Kuehn and the list itself may certainly be disinformation of a sort. The very first point, regarding skepticism as to whether children are dead would seem to invalidate the larger list. Numerous questions are offered without evidence and this in itself is a disinformation technique.

Yet the list's large-scale circulation on the 'Net, along with other such lists, provides us with evidence regarding the growing cynicism attached to these events.

This is the important point. When the body politic begins to show evident and obvious mistrust, the powers-that-be have got to realize they need to do a better job regarding communication of the facts surrounding these horrible shootings.


by Clare Kuehn

1) As yet, we have not seen any concrete evidence that any child died.

2) As yet, parents have not been allowed to see their children. (Photoshopped pictures do not count.)

3) As of now, I have seen only one unambiguous statement from a grieving parent (Robbie Parker).

4) According to the official story, Adam Lanza was found with his older brother's ID, and it was not stolen. However, older brother Ryan - who officials say is very cooperative - claims not to have even seen his brother since 2010. Where would Adam get this ID? And why does such use not qualify as a theft?

5) According to the official story, Adam Lanza was wearing a black outfit with a mask and bulletproof vest. Why would he want to hide his identity, and why would he wear a bulletproof vest, if he planned to kill himself?

6) The medical examiner asserts that all wounds were caused by a rifle or other long weapon, and police/FBI say that the school was littered with .223 (rifle) casings. But Adam Lanza was found dead in the school with only handguns - a rifle was found in the trunk of his car. But then he could not possibly have been firing the rifle, and could not have committed the murders. Who did?

7) According to the official story, the killing was tightly confined to two classrooms. But then why were so many children told to close their eyes while leaving the building?

8 ) Joanne Didonato, the principal's secretary, called in sick on Friday - something she rarely does. So presumably, she must have been awfully ill. Yet she then felt well enough to give an interview. "Of all days," she said, emphasizing the strange coincidence.

9) The hospital went into lockdown and cleared four trauma rooms, but received only three patients, two of them dead children (according to the official story) and one mildly wounded adult.

10) Why were there such persistent reports that Mrs. Lanza was a kindergarten teacher, and that she died at the school, when the new official story is that she was not connected to the school and was killed at home?

11) What happened to the report that Adam Lanza's girlfriend and another friend were missing in New Jersey?

12) What happened to the woodsman in a black jacket and camo pants who was arrested and handcuffed outside the school? He actually shouted to parents, "It wasn't me." Who was he and what was he doing there?

13) What happened to the dark van or SUV that the police surrounded in the parking lot, or the maroon sedan with a blown-out back window they were on the lookout for?

14) The official story is that Nancy Lanza was a gun collector who obeyed the law. But since 20-year-olds are not permitted to buy guns or ammo or carry guns in Connecticut, why would she give her "autistic" son access to both guns and ammo?

15) Why were parents told on Friday that "if you haven't been reunited with your child by now it's already over"? Does anyone imagine that real parents of real children would simply say, "Okay, the show's over, let's go home now"?

16) Would real parents of real children really be satisfied with (possibly photoshopped) pictures of their children? Wouldn't they demand to see their children one last time firsthand?

17) According to the official story, 28 people died but only 1 was wounded. The dead included 20 small, squirmy children - difficult targets even for professionals. How could Adam Lanza achieve such amazingly deadly accuracy, in such a short length of time?

18 ) A child asserts that he/she heard someone say, "Put your hands up," followed by the reply, "Don't shoot." This indicates that the police took a suspect into custody inside the school. But if that was Adam Lanza, how did he kill himself after that point?

19) Another child asserts that he/she saw a man pinned down to the ground with handcuffs on. Again, this indicates that the police took a suspect into custody. If that was Adam Lanza, how did he then kill himself?

20) When Ryan Lanza was falsely identified as the shooter, who deleted his Facebook profile and created many others in his name?

 21) Is it reasonable for a geeky 20-year-old to carry two pistols and hundreds of rounds of ammunition while wearing a bulletproof vest and a mask?

22) Why did the police say on Friday that they were going to leave the bodies rotting in the school until Sunday, then Saturday morning announce that they had spirited the bodies away in the middle of the night? Perhaps to ensure that the transport, if any, would go unrecorded on photos or video?

23) Why won't police tell us where they found the Henry repeating rifle, the Enfield rifle, and the shotgun?

24) Did the school have one or more security cameras? What do they show?

25) Why did a police officer specifically mention, on radio, that "they're coming at me through this wood," followed by a fellow officer saying, "This is it"?

26) One officer in the school said, "We've got one suspect down." Who was that? Down in this situation generally means in custody(on the ground and cuffed), not dead.

27) Why didn't Adam's uncle see anything out of the ordinary in Adam when the two saw each other in June?

28) Why is Adam Lanza reported to be a loner when a teenager said (oxymoronically), "[Lanza and his friends] always gathered alone in a corner in school"?

29) Why did police assign an individual state trooper to every grieving family, whether the family wants such "protection" or not?

30) Why are Ryan Lanza and his roommates still in custody, and why are the police pretending that it's for their own benefit?

31) Is it a coincidence that Nancy Lanza's brother is Kingston Police Officer James Champion, who lives next door to the former Lanza home?

32) Since the alleged shooter's father is VP of GE Capital, and (like "Batman shooter" James Holmes's father) was scheduled to testify at the Senate Hearings on the LIBOR scandal, is there a LIBOR connection to this event?

This is a disturbing list, even if each point raised has a reasonable rebuttal. The authorities, after so many shootings with so many unanswered questions, are simply not doing an adequate job, in our view, to reassure citizens of their safety and law enforcement's general competence.

Over time, questions from multiple events become corrosive and tend to undermine civil trust. This would seem to be happening. Those in charge ought to be concerned.

Conclusion: A new methodology of public communication would seem to be called for.

A Question of Strength

The Island of Rab

Have any of this blogs' dear readers heard about how, in 1945 on an island in the Adriatic, 4,000 people were brutally and sadistically massacred in a period of a few days? No, neither had I. You would think something like that would get a mention somewhere when you check out the name of the island where this happened? For instance on Wikipedia? Well you'd be wrong.

In that case visit the blog, The Irish Savant and read the story. The comments to the story are also well worth reading.

Martin Webster email on Zionism

The tide is finally turning against the Zionists
by Martin Webster
Thursday 13th December 2012.

"Shameful cowardice at heart of Tory Govt's relations with Israel" - Peter Oborne, Daily Telegraph

Once again, the Daily Telegraph columnist Peter Oborne sticks his head above the parapet and declares that the Conservative government’s relationship with Israel is driven by “cowardice” and that its refusal to criticise the Zionist state is “shameful”.

How Oborne was allowed to get such an article published in the usually slavishly pro-Zionist ‘Torygraph’ is beyond my ken. But it was certainly a good deed in a naughty world and has quite cheered me up. I run the item out below.

(The last time I looked, at 9.35pm, there were 1,160 comments on the article which only appeared this morning in hard copy. I looked through the first 20 or so. The Zionist organised lynch-mob are well represented, but some quite brave anti-Zionist readers defied them, making some telling points.)

The situation which Oborne describes as obtaining in Tory circles also applies to the Labour and Liberal Democrat parties, although those parties have a greater number of anti-Zionist “mavericks” than the Tories.

The same cannot be said of the United Kingdom Independence Party (Ukip) which, in order to protect itself from accusations of “anti-semitism” expresses at every opportunity the most grovelling and demeaning of pro-Jewish, pro-Israel sentiments.

In 2005 Ukip members of the European Parliament voted in support of a Jewish-contrived resolution which, if enacted into law, would have resulted in British citizens being arrested in Britain by the British Police acting on European Union Arrest Warrants and deported without any recourse to British courts to face trial in whichever EU member state issued the warrant for the ‘crime’ of “Holocaust Denial” which is not a criminal offence in this country! So much of “national independence” under Ukip.

Those who heard the recent BBC Radio 4 profile of Ukip leader Nigel Farage will have noted that Farage’s closest buddy is somebody called Bloom or something of that sort, whose only fault is that he cannot keep pace with Farage in the boozing stakes.

I hope nobody who considers him/her self to be an authentic British Nationalist would dream of casting of vote for the City slicker Farage’s Ukip.

Peter Oborne made a trenchant documentary for Channel 4’s ‘Dispatches’ series about Zionist corruption of ‘our’ parliamentarians and other ‘public’ servants three years ago. I reviewed that documentary for Prof Kevin MacDonald’s ‘The Occidental Observer’ web site

Perhaps our greatest ally in the battle against Zionist-Jewry will be the spiteful nastiness of these people whenever their slightest wish is denied them. Take this latest example: 

Successive post-Communist Polish governments have been noteworthy in their willingness to identify with the USA-Israel world Behemoth. Poland is poor and is in dire need of economic development. 

It is also desperate to achieve an abatement of endless Zionist slander which holds that Poland is co-responsible for “the Holocaust”. After all, Auschwitz was on Polish land, the specious argument goes. The huge losses suffered by Poland in WW2 are only raised by “anti-semites” when Zion’s professional liars drone on about “Polish guilt”. 

But the Polish people, though still poor for the most part, are kind and when they see folk in greater suffering, they try to help. 

Not long ago a Polish group repaired water cisterns in Palestine which were urgently needed by nearly destitute Palestinian villagers because the occupying Israelis had either stolen or poisoned their usual water sources. The Israelis sell back to the Palestinians the water stolen from them at five times the going rate in Jewish areas of ‘Israel’, where many homes have their own swimming pools as well as all the latest water-dependent household gadgets. 

Water denial is one of the tools deployed by the Israelis to drive the Palestinians off their ancestral lands, whereupon at each land-grab the Israeli and the mainly Jewish-owned world media trumpet: “A land without people for a people without land!”. 

Yesterday (Wednesday 12th December) the Israeli newspaper Ha’aretz reported on growing tensions in relations between Israel and Poland. 

Poland’s deputy foreign minister refused to meet the Israeli ambassador in Warsaw after Israel’s Civil Administration in the occupied West Bank of Palestine destroyed the water cisterns which had been repaired by a Polish group for use by the Palestinians. 

When summoned to the Foreign Ministry in Warsaw, the Israeli ambassador promised the cisterns will not be destroyed in future “on condition that an official permit is requested from the Israeli government before any work is carried out on them”. 

This condition was rejected by the Poles, who said that they “will not ask Israel’s permission to repair Palestinian infrastructure on Palestinian land”. On top of that expression of intestinal fortitude — which puts Establishment politicians in Britain to shame — the Poles added that they will raise the issue of Israel’s destruction of the cisterns at the next available session of the European Union. 

The destruction of the cisterns was not done to protect the Israeli ‘Water Sales to the Palestinians’ swindle I have mentioned, but as an act of revenge against Poland who, along with most other European nations voted for voted for the recent Palestinian application at the United Nations for recognition as a “non-members observer state”. (The crucial word in that description of status is “state”.) 

Britain, shamefully, was one of the few exceptions to this European consensus by abstaining. 

By destroying the cisterns which the Poles had repaired, the Israelis — with the full backing of the Jewish diaspora — sought not only to punish the Palestinians for having the temerity to seek and obtain international recognition of themselves as a state, but also to demonstrate to those who feel sympathy for the Palestinians that: “The more you try to help them, the more we will add to their suffering. Thus you will be tortured by guilt as they are tortured by thirst, insanitary conditions and disease!” 

What lovely people! It makes me sick with shame to think that representatives of my nation Britain, of which I wish to be proud, are fawning to people who think and act like that. 

I hold the view that the Palestinians have taken every blow that has been meted out to them and have survived to fight back, again and again. They have earned at first the grudging and then the open admiration of an increasing world-wide circle of people who recognise that they too are victims of the Jewish-American Behemoth and that a victory for the Palestinians will be an inspiration for us all. 

For all their spite, for all their vindictive cruelty, for all their corruption and intimidation of ‘our’ political leaders and public servants, Zionist-Jewry is on a slippery slope. The more they thrash around, kick out and scream, the faster they slide. 

I wish all genuine nationalists who look forward to celebrating Christmas, the Winter Solstice, the New Year, a very happy time during the festive season.

The cowardice at the heart of our relationship with Israel 

The Tories’ shameful reluctance to criticise Tel Aviv is putting any hope of peace at risk 
by Peter Oborne 

 It is impossible to understand the modern Conservative Party without a grasp of the scale and profundity of its links to the state of Israel. The connection dates back at least as far the historic meeting between the great Zionist leader Chaim Weizmann and the Conservative prime minister A J Balfour in 1905, during which Weizmann convinced Balfour of the case for a Jewish national state. 

The warmth forged 107 years ago is today sustained by the Conservative Friends of Israel (CFI). Some 80 per cent of all Tory MPs are members, including most Cabinet ministers. No other lobbying organisation – and certainly not one that acts in the interests of a foreign country – carries as much weight at Westminster. Every year, it takes a significant number of parliamentarians to Israel. Meanwhile, its sponsors play an important role in financing both the Tories nationally, and MPs at the local level. 

There is no doubt that the CFI has exercised a powerful influence over policy. The Conservative politician and historian Robert Rhodes James, writing in the Jerusalem Post in 1995, called it "the largest organisation in Western Europe dedicated to the cause of the people of Israel". Its power has not waned since. On Tuesday, it hosted approximately 100 Tory MPs, including six Cabinet ministers, and a further 40 peers, at a lunch in central London. The speaker was David Cameron, who pronounced himself a "passionate friend" of Israel, making clear (as he has done in the past) that nothing could break that friendship. 

This speech can be seen as part of a pattern. The CFI can call almost at will upon the Prime Minister, Chancellor of the Exchequer or Foreign Secretary. The Palestinians enjoy no such access. They would be lucky to get a single Conservative MP in the audience for their events, and perhaps some moribund peer to make an address. There is no such organisation as the Conservative Friends of Palestinians. 

This lack of even-handedness reflects itself in policy. When William Hague denounced Israel's 2006 invasion of Lebanon as "disproportionate", the CFI (as I revealed in a film on the pro-Israeli lobby for Channel 4's Dispatches) complained in person to David Cameron. It obtained a promise that the word would never be used again – one that was kept when Israel bombarded Gaza last month, even though the number of Palestinian deaths vastly exceeded those on the Israeli side. 

As Foreign Secretary, Hague repeated without demur controversial Israeli claims that Hamas started the conflict (there was provocation on both sides, but the critical moment of escalation strikes me as Israel's extra-judicial killing of the Hamas commander Ahmed Jabari). Britain has since bowed to Israeli pressure and refused to back the Palestinian bid for enhanced recognition at the United Nations. Recently, we summoned the Israeli ambassador for a richly deserved rollicking about the settlement programme, but this was part of a joint effort with a large number of other European countries, and has not been followed up. 

To be fair to the Government, Tony Blair was worse, appearing at times to regard the interests of Britain and Israel as identical, and refusing even to call for a ceasefire for some time after the start of the appalling Lebanon war. William Hague and David Cameron have tried to be more robust. Unfortunately, they have largely failed. It is hard to be certain to what extent this reluctance to criticise Tel Aviv is due to the influence of the Israeli lobby in Britain, or fear of offending Israel's international patron, the United States. 

The formal position of the Government is excellent. Britain supports the two-state solution, which has been the basis of all serious peace discussions since the Oslo Accords 20 years ago. The trouble is that ministers refuse to take any concrete steps to bring it about. For example, they condemn the settlements, but only in a half-hearted way (the Prime Minister devoted 64 words to the issue on Tuesday, and almost 300 to the Iranian threat). 

This is cowardice. There are times in personal as well as political life when friendship involves a great deal more than the kind of genial back-slapping with which the Prime Minister treated the Israel lobby on Tuesday. The brutal truth is that Benjamin Netanyahu is leading his country down the path to self-destruction. If he is allowed to go ahead with the latest plans for settlement construction, all hopes of Middle East peace will vanish and die. 

Mark Simmonds, a junior Foreign Office minister, formally acknowledged this in a revealing but unreported Commons debate just a few hours after Tuesday CFI lunch, saying: "I think that the door is beginning to close on the realistic possibility of a two-state solution." William Hague now believes that settlement construction will render it completely impossible within two years at most. 

We will then be left with a greater Israel stretching from the Mediterranean to the Jordan river. Of course, this is a tidier geographical unit than the complicated mess which an attempt to return Israel to its 1967 boundaries would produce. But the Palestinians would suddenly find themselves in a majority. Israel would then face a choice between retaining its democracy, but ceasing to be a Jewish state, or embracing a form of apartheid in which Palestinians were refused basic rights. Judging from the rhetoric emanating from Mr Netanyahu and his unpleasant coalition allies, this is probably the choice today's Israeli leadership would make. 

On Monday night, one former British ambassador to Israel, the Hebrew-speaking Sir Sherard Cowper-Coles, made an eloquent speech from which it is important to quote at some length: "I believe passionately that Israel on its present course is embarked on a pathway to assisted suicide. Suicide assisted by the Congress of the United States. The idea that the problem can be solved by walling up the Palestinians in the Middle Eastern equivalent of the Bantustans, which the South African government embarked on in the 1940s, is not only offensive morally, it is deeply out of keeping with everything we know of human history. It will not work, it cannot work, it should not work. And anyone who has a real affection for the Jewish people will want to help them to avoid this looming disaster." 

All leaders of the Conservative Party stand in the line of succession of A J Balfour, who (as foreign secretary in 1917) signed the declaration which recognised the Jews' right to their own homeland. I believe this inheritance gives Mr Cameron a special link to Israel – and a distinct responsibility. It means he is within his rights to spell out to the present Israeli leadership that it is embarking on a dark, ugly and futile course. Given the cowed inertia of President Obama, it is all the more important that the British Prime Minister steps forward. 

I cannot speak for Britain's Jewish community, but I have a strong impression that many of them would be delighted if Mr Cameron spoke out far more strongly than he has done so far. Indeed, it is essential that he should do so. Mr Cameron does not want to go down in history as the man upon whose watch all hope of a two-state solution died, and with it all hope of a secure and peaceful future for the country a Conservative prime minister helped to bring into existence.

A man has pleaded guilty to using threatening, abusive, or insulting language where he was described as verbally abusing a non-national on Barrack St, Cork.

Inspector Bill Duane said gardaí responded to a call to the area on Jan 4.

A non-national told gardaí he was in the area waiting for an estate agent to come to show him a property on 96 Barrack St.
As he was waiting, Richard Hurley, 68, came out of 95 Barrack St.

Insp Duane said at Cork District Court yesterday: “He came out and stuck his finger up to him and said:
‘Go back to your own fucking country you fucking black ‘N’.”

“Mr Hurley told gardaí the man was peeping in his doorway and said: ‘I will not have peeping Toms in my doorway.’
“He continued to shout: ‘The Irish did not fight in West Cork for the blacks. Bobby Sands did not die for the blacks’,” said Insp Duane.

Judge Leo Malone asked why Hurley was behaving in this manner.
Diarmuid Kelleher, solicitor, said Hurley reached the age of 68 without getting into this kind of difficulty.

Mr Kelleher said Hurley had heart difficulties and that this had something to do with his lack of tolerance on the occasion.

“Behaving in this fashion is not good for your heart either,” said Judge Malone.

“He has no predisposition to this kind of criminality,” said Mr Kelleher.

“It is inappropriate behaviour,” said Judge Malone.
“Taking into consideration his age I, reluctantly, won’t impose a conviction.
I will put it back to Mar 25, 2013.
If he pays €350 to Marymount hospice he will get the benefit of a dismissal under the Probation of Offenders Act.”

Patrick Moore dead

Patrick Moore dead

Very sad.

I do remember the 'mad march hare' slagging off the National Front.. the late 1970s.

He was not one of us.

I have seen the current rubbish from many so called nationalists today.

He was just a mad reactionary tory.

Bearing in mind this was yesterday.

If Moore was slagging off the current NF then fair enough.

The current NF are useless.

I have seen it all before.

The states idea is to put idiots like Kevin Bryan into positions that will turn off anyone with brains from nationalism.

People like Chris Jackson , I have no idea what his game is.

His intellect is minor anyway.

He slags off everyone behind their backs. And I mean everyone.

No way will I ever trust Mr Michael C Jackson ever again.

I have seen this all before.

The state promoted idiots to shag up the nationalist movement in the 1980s.

In the late 1980s they promoted Joe Nylan in Manchester.

Now they promote Kevin Bryan, a similar well meaning simpleton. The BNP and the NF are being dumbed down.

Bryan was a shelf stacker for KWIKSAVE till recently.

It's best the movement crashes down like it did last time. I will be too old to build it up for if there is ever another chance.

But at least cunts like Kevin Bryan and Chris Jackson can have their 'hour of triumph'.
