Commentary on the Provisional sell-out
Since 1986, the leadership of Provisional Sinn Fein has continually reasserted the legitimacy of partition and in doing so, have shown their curtailment of Republican ideals that have been held true since 1916 and before. They have betrayed the memories of fallen United Irishmen, Fenians, Young Irelanders, and all of the other brave souls who gave their lives for the ideal of a completely free and United Ireland. Even family members of the 1981 hungerstrikers have made known their contempt for the sell-out that continues.
Men who once held legendary status within the movement have become no more than pawns and sycophants in game of political chess that has rehashed itself a slew of times in modern Irish history. From Parnell
, the British political system has chewed up and spit out many of Ireland's patriots.
Provisional Sinn Fein
has fallen away from Republican ideals and has adopted a sort of Constitutional Nationalism as a pathway for their politics. They have assumed their place on the avenue to uselessness and the outmoded. They’ve joined the "Republican Party"[sic] of Fianna Fail
and the Irish Parliamentary Party
as archaic and worthless political porticos.
The Provos in effect have reinforced the illegitimate puppet states formed by an illegal treaty of surrender. They are getting paychecks from the same governments that they had so vehemently opposed since the British government propped them up over 80 years ago. Hypocrisy at its zenith.
Handing over weapons that no longer rightfully belong to them, the Provos are committing an unforgivable act of treason and betraying the trust of the nationalist people of Ireland. The weapons that they are decommissioning to the Brits are the warranted property of the people of Ireland and to hand them over to the enemy is an act of surrender that is untenable. The enemy has NOT
left our country, and there is absolutely NO
conceivable way that a Republican should ever support a surrender of arms while the Brits still have a single foot on our island.
The facade that the Provos represent the fighters for Irish freedom needs to be surrendered along with their claim to legitimacy as a representative of the Republican community. Those who gave their lives for the ideals of Republicanism would be ashamed of the current process of concessions.
STOP THE SELL-OUT!
