    Default Charlie Flanagan's disgraceful attack on pro-life activists - 'like the KKK'

    Putting up anti-abortion posters outside the homes, offices and local churches of FG TDs makes those involved "like the Klu Klux Klan", the once powerful U.S racist group renowned for beatings, murders, and arson attacks on African-Americans.

    That is according to Fine Gael party chairman Charlie Flanagan TD who took to Twitter to express his anger at the appearance of the posters:

    "Abortion posters with FG TDs appear in the night. Nobody admits to putting them up. Promoters hide their faces. Just like KKK"
    TD claims pro-life extremists acting like Ku Klux Klan - Independent.ie

    Meanwhile, no politician has commented on vandalism by a pro-choice extremist group and death threats to Archbishop Diarmuid Martin after his intervention in the abortion debate earlier in the year.

    Perspective

    Proves once again that abortionistas cannot defend their postion and always have to resort to personalised attacks as a distraction.

    Ah get off your high horse. Most anti-abortion people are decent people who are doing what they think is right. But there are certain groups(one in particular) who take go too far and their intimidation of TDs is unacceptable.

    Funnily enough its the KKK who would have recycled the pro-choice arguments swapping foetus for negro.

    The people who are engaging in the type of activity outlined here are very little different to the kkk adherents in the United States irrespective of what horse you are on.

    I don't know - if you look at the photo of the Hillybillies in the OP, they bear a remarkable resemblance to the YD mob.
