Germany acknowledges the crimes of the Holocaust.
Stop any 100 random Americans — or Canadians, or other nationalities for that matter — and ask them what all the fighting in “northern” Ireland is about. Those few who venture an answer will tell you it’s all religious fighting.
“Catholics versus Protestants” they’ll tell you.
Hmmm…. a bunch of self-described British loyalist, living in part of Ireland, fighting to keep part of Ireland ruled by the British. Their opponents are a bunch of Irish people, living in Ireland, fighting to bring Irish rule to their part of Ireland.
People are brainwashed into thinking of the U.K. as one of the more civilized nations on Earth, but they occupy a neighbor. They’ve resorted to military rule, death squads, and the British government itself is implicated in a number of terrorist bombing attacks.
Germany recognizes the crimes of the Holocaust while even ‘til this day Britain insists that their first genocide in Ireland, the one under Cromwell, was no big deal, and their second genocide never even happened. Nope. It was all a natural disaster — “The Blight” — forgetting that a million (conservatively estimated) Irish starved while Ireland was producing plenty of food… only it was all getting exported to England.
Sure this happened a long time ago, sure you can argue that it’s all ancient history, but think of this: Ireland’s population has yet to recover. It’s been 150 years already, but Ireland’s population still hasn’t recovered from the genocide it was dealt under British rule.
Like I said, there’s no acknowledgement. Forget about apologies, forget about reparations, forget about even asking the British nicely to stop occupying part of Ireland. They can do whatever they want, without explanation, without responsibility, and you’d have to be a radical to say otherwise.
After all, it’s only a “Religious Conflict” anyway. Yup. “Catholics versus Protestants.” Or so I heard.
