    Default SF/IRA Good Cop Bad Cop Routine...

    SINN Fein was yesterday accused of creating a “hierarchy of victims” after it tried to justify apologising for the IRA murder of Garda Jerry McCabe while declining to do so for security force members killed in Northern Ireland.
    Basically it is now deemed wrong to have murdered a 'good' cop but not to have murdered a 'bad'* cop...

    *(ie a proddy one or a turncoat one)

    Sinn Fein MLA Mitchel McLaughlin came out on Wednesday evening to try and differentiate between people the IRA murdered in the Republic and those whose lives it took in Northern Ireland.
    The '32 county' party continuing it's program of different policy's for different parts of the 26/6

    UUP justice spokesman Tom Elliott said it was not that long ago that Sinn Fein was justifying all murders “but now that seems to be changing”.

    He said: “I find it astounding that they can say that the situation was vastly different in the Republic of Ireland to that in Northern Ireland. How can they say that? Murder is murder. They are trying to create a hierarchy of victims.
    just like his post election speech Big Tom tells it as it is..

    Fianna Fail justice spokesperson Niall Collins said: “In response to requests for a similar apology for the murder of some 273 police officers in the North at the hands of the Provisional IRA, Sinn Fein moved quickly to dismiss the idea, claiming that the murder of a policeman in one part of the country was ‘vastly different’ to the murder of a policeman in another part of the country.
    273 more apologies due for a shared future...

    SDLP policing spokesperson Conall McDevitt said: “Sinn Fein keeps telling us they want to build reconciliation but yet refuse to acknowledge that truth and reconciliation are two sides of the same coin. You cannot build a reconciled society on historic revisionism and retrospective justification of indefensible acts.

    “It is frankly sickening that Sinn Fein would now seek to make a differentiation between the murder of a garda and that of an RUC officer.”
    indeed Conall but sure it's getting hard to differentiate between SDLP and SF/IRA...

    DUP MLA Arlene Foster said the comments expose “just how hollow Sinn Fein’s reconciliation calls actually are”. She said: “Declan Kearney appears to be as removed from reality as Gerry Adams with these attempts to differentiate between murders on different sides of a border which Sinn Fein claims not to recognise. Those who serve their community as police officers are no different whether it is in Northern Ireland or the Republic of Ireland.

    “Similarly, the murder of anyone who stepped forward to serve their community and uphold the rule of law is equally wrong whether it took place in Northern Ireland or in the Republic.”
    Our future FM with words of wisdom...

    Sinn Féin will eventually appologise for all IRA violence one day, the IRA will be chipped off for political confidence the way Ruairí Ó Brádaigh was.

    I'm only surprised they started this early.

    SF/IRA think that by the time they admit that a UI will never happen, there will have been so many u-turns no one will notice...

    The British are experts at this. They'll apologise for Bloody Sunday but not other acts of terrorism, violence and injustice it has bestowed the Irish people in their struggle for liberation.

    Will the British apologise for ALL their acts of imperialism and brutality worldwide?

    The RUC enforced British imperialism, state terrorism, sectarianism and bigotry. The Gardai didn't. The Provos were at war with the British state

    Will unionists apologise for their misrule, collusion and terrorism? Hypocrites.

    Typical fascist response from our resident fascist anti fascist, who always responds in similar fashion when confronted with uncomfortable truths and facts...

    It is quite frankly sickening that Connall's party for decades called on nationalists to lend their support to what was a paramilitary police force engaged in a murder campaign by proxy against the nationalist people of the north.
