Republicans demand to know why Ruth Dudley Edwards focuses so much on Gerry Adams, Sinn Fein and the IRA yet writes little about their loyalist counterparts.
She says “It’s simple. Because unionists don’t vote for killers, what remains of paramilitary loyalism is little more than a few hoods. But because many nationalists do vote for killers, the IRA’s political wing has been successful and the republican movement is still under the direction of a cadre of elderly ex-paramilitaries. And Gerry Adams, president of Sinn Fein for 34 years, is their front man, and I believe he and his organisation remain a threat to the stability, prosperity and well-being of both parts of Ireland, and that I should keep pointing that out.
Gerry ( I was never in the IRA ) Adams, presumably at a Frank Spencer Appreciation march in the 70s.
Sinn Fein are still terrorists, they still bully, beat and kill anyone who dares to defy them. They have long been the public face of, the Irish Republican Army (IRA). They terrorise their own community, are involved in wide scale criminality and the cover-ups of many murders, holding their own communities as hostages and both Governments to ransom. This is terrorism by any other name.
