Proclamation 1916

It is fashionable for LetsGetAlongerists to equate unionism and nationalism as equally sectarian. It is fashionable for “liberal unionists” to think that nationalism is as sectarian as their more hardcore unionism.

Nothing can be further from the Truth.
While acknowledging the historical questions…as to whether the 1916 Easter Rising was a good idea or a bad idea, there is no question that it was MORALLY justified and that the Proclamation is non-sectarian.
The Republic of Ireland is entitled to the allegiance of every Irishman and Irishwoman.
Needless to say it has mine.

    Is it the right event to capture Irish liberation? my feeling is the time is yet to come. It was a step in a journey. Was the start of the Anglo-Irish war not a bigger step? They are all touched with the result of a partitioned Ireland. My parents didn’t say much about the Easter Rising, more about songs and cieli, myths and red branch knights.
