    Default Unionist Posters

    Since I've been reading this Forum I've noticed a very strange anomaly which I'd like to get to the bottom of. How is that whilst nationalist posters are quite content to disagree with one another and "call out" someone that has said something fanatical or out of order, Unionist posters never do likewise amongst their own? In all the time I've been posting on this Blog, not once can I recall an instance where a Unionist poster, many of whom would claim to be moderate and reasonable people, has condemned a bigoted or sectarian rant from the likes of Covenanter, Bilko etc.

    Right now, as we speak, there are arguments between moderate and more radical "CNR's" on another thread. I myself have had it out with a number of radical republicans in the last few days and its a pattern that's repeated regularly on this Site. Why then do Unionists not seem to disagree with any of their fanatical nut cases? Is is because in reality they really agree with these people? Are all Unionists really just haters and supremacists beneath the surface? I personally don't believe that they are but there has to be a reason why they keep rolling in behind one another regardless of the extremist content of some of the material from certain "PUL" posters who contribute to this forum.

    It really doesn't show that community in a good light when it appears that they refuse to speak out for what is right when one of their own is expressing downright sinister, dogmatic attitudes.

    Unionists have always made it easy for nationalists to occupy the moral high ground.

    Seriously Legolas, when was the last time you personally checked a fellow Unionist poster for saying something untoward?

    Surely what the Republicans keep telling us - "all Unionists are bigots" etc - isn't really true?

    You're a Republican are you not? keep telling yourself that if you want.

    I haven't seen any sectarianism so far from Unionists.... Link me too it please, I've seen half hearted condemnation from you towards the inflammatory posts by GJ..... You're the only 'Nationalist' who's complained about any such statements. I haven't seen such inflammatory comments from Unionists on here.

    No of course not......but then it would be practically impossible for an admirer of a convicted loyalist murderer such as yourself, to understand what the word sectarian even means......
