Happily, I have not seen the fawning media coverage of the Saville Report. The report itself is a product of the Belfast Agreement (Thanks to Tony Blair) and since that is all about appeasing Irish nationalism there can be no big surprise that Saville was all about creating the “right” outcome.
The topic seemed to create a massive traffic surge here on ATW so I am glad that at least there was a debate on the subject. Some of us reject Saville. But enough has been said about Bloody Sunday.
I want to talk about Bloody Monday. And Bloody Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, These were the thousands of days when the IRA murdered thousands of people. As Andrew pointed out, where has been the campaign for justice for the victims of all those atrocities?
And when we talk of Londonderry, why has there been a studied silence on the many vicious and savage killings that characterised the IRA in that area under the command of Martin McGuinness? Why have the families of the two young RUC men MURDERED by the McGuinness gang just three days before “Bloody Sunday” been forgotten? Does Justice look one way?
I’ll tell you why. Because here in Northern Ireland we are going through a process of historical revisionism. The barbarism of the IRA is being sanitised as their victims are consigned to history. The forces of law and order are being demonised. Irish republican mythology is being accepted instead of rejected. Those now claiming “justice” for the people killed on that one day in 1972 say nothing about those hundreds killed that same year by the IRA. Just one of those things. In this way, the wicked are being canonised and the innocent damned. What could be more evil than this?
I am old enough to be able to remember Bloody Sunday. I also remember all those other days that ruined so many lives. I take a stand for all those victims, the ones consigned to the memory hole by an immoral disgusting appeasement process. The first victim of the “peace” process is truth and unionists who do not like the burlesque of Saville should remember that they support the current process and so are in no position to complain about it.
Worse is to come – we will see the Butcher Boy as First Minister. We will see Bomber Kelly as Justice Minister. These obscenities are the outworkings of the toxic “process” people reluctantly endorse and are the high price many are prepared to pay to keep certain people “from going back to the old days”. Buying off the IRA means always having to say sorry.
