I see that the Mexican Flag is flown in Phoenix as police crackdown on illegal immigration. I wonder how Americans feel about the Mexican flag being flown on their soil? Obviously those flying it do so to mark territory – just as Irish republicans do the same in Northern Ireland. The flying of foreign flags is offensive and should be condemned. I would like to see all Irish tricolours, for example, removed from every lamp-post they hang from in Northern Ireland.

  1. " I would like to see all Irish tricolours, for example, removed from every lamp-post they hang from in Northern Ireland. "

    You really pine for the good aul days, when Tricolours were illegal, with a Protestant State for a Protestant people, while the Croppies tugged their forelocks?

    Also, on the issue of Northern Ireland, you like to blog about the Church’s shameful coverup of the abuse by Catholic priests, will you blog on the release of documents today, ending the Church’s coverup of the murder of 11 people, including a Catholic priest, by the British Army?

  2. We think that we have illegal immigration problems in our country but they pale into relative insignificance when compared to the US. What I cannot understand is that we, once an illegal immigrant has entered our country, do not seem able to return them whence they came without complex legal obstruction whilst in the US (or at least in Arizona) the US Bordedr Patrol can herd illegal immigrants straight onto a bus and then deliver them back to Mexico. It does not work, however, as the same illegals try again the next day or the day after.

    What an amazingly cheap piece of MOPEry and whataboutery! The incident took place in Phoenix, USA, and you still managed to drag it back to being about here!

    In other news:-

    Over 300 people are killed and nearly 400,000 displaced by floods triggered by heavy monsoon rains in northern Pakistan.

    I hate to see displacement like this, much akin to the displacement of the protestant community in the Irish Republic. I would like to see every single person in the Irish Free State drowned in a bucket. That’ll teach them!

  4. They just want to be allowed in to become good Americans.

    Isn’t this the obvious way to show it?

  5. The whole situation is incredible. The USA is already virtually a south American country and given the antics its neighbour is up to and general third worldness about the region what a future it faces. Its MORE aggressive than the immigration issues in Europe and poses a far greater issue for the world if the USA goes down the shitter.

  6. As Mark Steyn points out in America Alone, the British were the first people to radically reduce the rates on infant mortality. It gave them a huge demographic advantage over their imperial competitors and they conquered much of the world.

    Population trends simply roll over flags and borders. Mexico still has a large cohort of youths and they will head for the United States one way or another.

    Closed borders are an abject and failed response to demographic change. Japan is dying because of its failure to accept immigration. Populist responses are never going to be an adequate response to the issue in Arizona any more than in Ireland. Given the TUV’s electoral performance while running on simplistic sloganeering they may have managed to invent unpopular populism.

  7. It is not offensive to fly flags of foreign nations or other countries, it is done regularily on the Canadian-american border to show welcomeness to visitors and solidarity with your neighbours

  8. ‘The USA is already virtually a south American country’

    Those that live in the USA are only their because they violently displaced the natives and planted the land………….sound familiar?

    ‘The flying of foreign flags is offensive and should be condemned’

    In the Republic the Union flag is flown high at evrey Airport Seaport and public event centre and it doesnt bother anyone………should we take them down?

    Can’t believe so many Unionists are still in denial about their own sins and full of Hatred, you need get a life lads like your Nationalist Neighbours.

  9. "Flags should be masted after sunrise and lowered before sunset."

    Indeed, porkchopexpress.

    The lack of respect shown to the national flag (particularly around Easter) when it droops from lamposts annoys me greatly.

  10. "Obviously those flying it do so to mark territory – just as Irish republicans do the same in Northern Ireland."

    David,

    Unlike mainly unionist towns (like Clough, Kilkeel, Annalong to name but a few that I am familiar with) where the Union Flag is flown solely to show their respect for their monarch?

    Dear me.

  11. Henry, that is rare nonsense from you. Japan is not "dying": it remains populated by Japanese and its over-population is being addressed by a gentle demographic correction. It retains its industry, culture and its ‘Japaneseness’, and why not?. On the other hand, Britain is dying because the decline of the indigenous population is being undone by the high breeding rates of masses of immigrants of lesser ability. Projected populations of upwards of 70 million dominated by those who made the 3rd-world what it is indicate catastrophy for the British people and our islands noting that Ireland would be no more immune from the consequences of a 3rd-world invasion than it would have been from the consequences of a nazi invasion in 1940.

    It will be convictions that count. And then deterrent sentences. My expectations are low on both counts.

  13. yes, the IRA flag should be banned from the UK, considering what the cowardly scum done on all our citizens.

  14. Reg,

    I see plenty instances of the Union Flag being flown and sullied and I would stop that too!

  15. ‘yes, the IRA flag should be banned from the UK, considering what the cowardly scum done on all our citizens.’ – Willie, I mean Logical Unionist

    I hate to open this particular can of worms, but which flag would that be, Willie, I mean Logical Unionist?

  16. Seimi, and wee seamus,

    the ira flag, the tricolour.

    By the way, I am not willie anyone!

    You know the flag, the one seen when gerry adams ( the hero who seamus votes for ) carried the coffin of the shankill bomber?

    I can give you countless others, they all have the same flag.

    Dont you agree it is abominable to have such a rag displayed and can only lead to hurt and anguish to the families of the innocent murdered victims?

  17. ‘Dont you agree it is abominable to have such a rag displayed’

    A rag? Your now calling the Irish flag a rag? Really?

    Seamus – I know, I know. Wee Willie just gets the better of me sometimes…

  18. Semi,

    it is an abomination of a rag.

    Murdering, cowardly scum buried with it.

    You two are funny….wee willie?….lol if only you knew!

  19. ‘it is an abomination of a rag.’ – How so? In fact don’t bother answering. I’m not feeding you again after this. It gives me indigestion.

    And learn to spell my name. Or cut and paste, if spelling isn’t your strong point.

  20. It is deliberate, Semi.

    Because I am referring to your intellect, but obviously, you arent even semi intelligent enough to understand the joke!

    LOL,
    An Abomination of a rag; My definition; used to bury the lowest scum of the earth.

    Indigestion is nothing compared to being blown apart by the cowardly ira scum you and your poodle shameus support.
    SICK.

  21. You asked me, on another thread, what my name meant; was it short for Seamus? Because you were polite, I answered.

    That was on the same thread where I was polite to you, and you to me.

    And now, you use a mis-spelling of my name to attempt to insult me!? And you have the absolute cheek, the nerve, to imply that you have won some kind of argument!?

    ANY argument you may have had has been lost, Willie. You have to resort to cheap playground name-calling to try and look big. You are nothing but an ignorant, rude, petty little man, and I will NOT engage in ANY debate with you until such time as you actually grow up and apologise for your rudeness.

    David, where is your call for civility now? Or is Willie too close a friend?

  22. Semi, poor Semi, I am not called Willie, but if it rows your wee boat, you can call me Willie.

    I understand it ishard for you to understand my superior intellect, but I am refreshed that at least you know the master, King William who brought civilisation to the neanderthals.

    Semi, you think this is rude? I have been called much worse by your poodle shame-us and others. You choose to write in an illogical and illetrate manner, not I!

    Semi is apt, as Willie is, although I would prefer King William, but for me plain old Logical Unionist will do, or, as usual, THE VICTOR!

  23. An Abomination of a rag; My definition; used to bury the lowest scum of the earth.

    and by your own definition you legitimize the term ‘Butchers Apron’ for another flag, surely not your intent.

  24. porky,

    butchers apron is blue and white, I am sure the supporters of the bannsiders, Coleraine would be offended.

    The lowest scum of the earth, the ira, have used this rag for years, it is their flag.

    If not, tell me which is, and I will unreservedly apologise.

    I wont hold my breath.

  25. Dear Illogical the fact you use your own ‘defintion’ means you don’t have a leg to stand on when others use their more sensible logical definitions. Sleep tight pudding.

  26. Porky,

    face the truth, you will sleep much better, and maybe your conscience might be rested with respite.

    Also, I notice you cannot tell me I am wrong; ergo, I win!

    AGAIN! LOL LOL

    EASY!

  27. As anyone can see, LU logic is self-defeating – I imagine he’s off now blowing rasps into the mirror.
