    Alas, poor Northern Ireland–two generations of Ians.He certainly has the civil right; since his “morals” are based on mythology, there might be some question in that area. Still in the assembly; still able to commit mischief.

    Bye Bye Mr. Paisley! I’m sure the Northern Executive can replace you easily enough with a retarded monkey… in can only be an visual improvement on your repulsive car-crash of a face.Its one thing for Mr. Paisley to be ignorant, but to be ignorant AND ugly is an simply an abomination. Especially in this day and age when education and plastic surgery could so easily correct both these hideous defects.

    Ian Paisley Jr.’s position as deputy First Minister for ‘equality issues’ was a sick joke. The Paisleys are leaders of the DUP, a conservative hate group camouflaged as a political party that’s often compared to extremist christian groups in the US for promoting ‘bible fascism.” The DUP has deep roots in fascist politics and a long history of promoting violence against the Irish and GLBT folk. Their perverted ultraright views were best described by Irish President Mary McAleese. Speaking at an observance of the 60th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz by the Red Army, McAleese compared their bigotry to the Nazis and the KKK. She said the Nazi’s “gave to their children an irrational hatred of Jews in the same way that people in Northern Ireland transmitted to their children an irrational hatred of Catholics, in the same way that people give to their children an outrageous and irrational hatred of those who are of different colour and all of those things.”Sinn Fein is the best hope to eradicate the bigotry of the DUP and like minded ‘loyalists’.

    IAN SAYS:”Personal criticism, unfounded allegations, innuendo and attacks on me personally … this relentless period of criticism by those who have decided on this path has been unceasing.”************************************What a moron! Now he must have some sort of feeling what Gay Bashing is all about. Only Gay Bashing is truly from innuendo, and unfounded allegations!You’re lucky to be rid of him, though not entirely as I see.
