Sinn Féin Juniors Create A Stink

It seems that Sinn Féin Juniors have been at it again- fresh from being banned from Trinity before Christmas for an alleged hate mail campaign, the Mini-Provos have now turned their attention to healthcare.

A group of activists/ troops, some as young as 50, was apparently involved in a protest at Ireland's first private healthcare conference at the Berkeley Court Hotel in Dublin. They did this through ‘direct action protest’ AKA ‘making tits of themselves’ and attempted to read (it is not yet clear whether this was inhibited by interference from hotel security or their abnormally low IQs) the following statement to the conference delegates:

"We are here to protest against the blood sucking parasites here assembled; those who seek to make a profit from people's pain, profit from people's suffering and profit from people's fears and their ill-health. I refer to those in the so called private health industry who are here today in an attempt to further Americanize* and commodify the health of the Irish people. They collude in this with our corrupt right-wing Government, which sees the enrichment of the corporate elite as preferable to the well being of the Irish people.

"We in Ógra Shinn Fein believe that health is for people - not for profit! Corporations such as GE make everything from light bulbs to cars, now they wish to treat sick Irish people; as long as they have money. There is a smell in this room, the smell of corruption, the smell of greed, the smell of capitalist pigs swilling at the cash trough that the Government so willingly provides for them. The Irish people are not only paying for their health with their taxes, they are also paying with their suffering and death.

"We believe that access to health care is a universal and inalienable right for all; not a privilege for the wealthy, nor should the lack of such universal provision be punishment for the poor."

Onwards towards to Socialist Republic!**"


Indeed.

You may notice the * symbol, used to highlight the irony of how they focus on the ‘Americanization’ of the healthcare system by using American spelling themselves. You may also notice the ** symbol, noting the extraneous use of the word 'to' and the lack of an 'a'. It seems they don't even bother reading their own statements after writing them.

Apparently, in an act which I’m sure Pearse and Connolly would have been proud of, they also planned to set-off stink bombs during the protest. Classy.

No doubt this selfless act by Ireland’s Young Patriots will go down in history alongside the Easter Rising, the Good Friday Agreement, and em, Gerry Adams getting a new pair of glasses…

The above quote is taken from the SF Statement by The Council of Tits
===================================

Yes have republicans not profited a lot by peoples pain. The Shinners are able to wear Armini Suits and designer shirts and ties while the Innocent Victims are living hand to mouth. What about the thousands of Innocent Victims both Catholic and Protestant who were going about their legal and lawful way of life when they became Victims of what is now proving to be a very dirty war, and you have these SF twits making tits of themselves.

If you attempted to write a farce involving the self-parodying oratory of Marxist ‘student-type’ demonstrators, you couldn’t do it any better in fiction than these clowns have done it in fact. What a load of past its sell-by date brain-washed unthinking gibberish!

This Marxist crap – if it goes up the political hierarchy - will be the buffer that brings Sinn Fein’s train to a complete stop. Thus far, and no further.

Does this mean that baby 'ra has ruled out joining a coalition government?

Fair play to OSF for highlighting this issue. What are the baby stoops up to in the world, if indeed such a thing exists, baby stoops obviously, not the world? (Grammar okay for the stoop snoop?)

Apart from the snideness and abuse are the SDLP in favour of private healthcare, opposed to free universal healthcare or just ignorant of life in the 26?

Maybe this was the type of attitude that so outraged former vice chair EE and led him to resign in a welter of abuse for the party misleadership. Any stoops got a thought on this?
