Irish racism, Ctd

Newton Emerson wrote in the Irish Times of Saturday November 16 2013:
"The supposed republican principles of the anti-agreement 1916 Societies are somewhat underaxsmined by the language of their latest recruitment drive, which is replete with sectarian references to "planters", "colonialism" and "occupation"."
Newton Emerson continued, and asked a critical question:
"One of the mysteries of Irish politics is why, unlike in the rest of Europe, people who speak like this are not immediately recognised as ethnic fascists."
