Use-Of-The-Word-Terrorism-In-Relation-To-Northern-Ireland-Watch

Recommended Posts

Policeman killed by a bomb in Omagh. Enda Kenny goes as far as to call it an "act of terror"; not a bad attempt but he can't quite bring him self to add 'ism' to the end of the word. Let's see how our own press gets on in describing this act for what it is - Terrorism.

ITV - Nope (Sorry, can't figure out how to link to their story)

Sky - Not likely

BBC - Course not!

Daily Mail - Well done!

Telegraph - Well obviously they say it

Daily Express - Yup

Guardian - Yes even the Guardian manages

So the question is, if it's terrorism, if the whole country knows it's terrorism, if all the papers EVEN the Guardian call it terrorism, if Ireland's Prime Minister nearly calls it terrorism, then why don't our TV news broadcasters?

Maybe they will update their articles when a group claims responsibility. Ofcourse everyone knows it was a terrorist attack, why do you think news sources are not reporting it as such?

I really haven't got a clue but the avoidance of this troublesome word seems to have been going for a good few years now. I'd estimate that we stopped calling Northern Irish terrorists terrorists around the time that we started getting worried about Islamic terrorists.

To be fair, I'm not sure at the moment that the word has been completely banned by the BBC, ITV and Sky, so the purpose of this thread is to look for instances of its use by these organisations.

Because if what the IRA were doing in the 70s, 80s and 90s was terrorism, then one would have to explain why the government needed all those wonderful new powers to deal with islamic terrorism.

More on the BBC's ban on the use of the words 'terrorist' and 'terrorism' when referring to Northern Ireland:-

Massereene Barracks

Soldiers' relatives in plea for information on Antrim killings - No

999 call from Massereene Barracks on night of murders - No

DNA detail at the centre of Massereene murders case - No

But wait...

Brian Shivers guilty of Massereene soldiers' killings - Yes!! (but only quoting the words of a policeman)

Bombs in Londonderry

Security tight after two bombs explode in Londonderry - No

Dissident republicans blamed for Londonderry bombs - No

Naughty naughty dissidents!

If we called them terrorists, the 'merkins would invade NI and Eire, then kill half the civilian population as part of their ongoing quest to install McDonalds and Baskin Robbins everywhere... ;)

this is because the overall plan is to "catholicise" the US and UK....as per EU directive.(and just look at how many of the last few lots of presidents and their aides have come from stables such as georgetown uni,theres a hell of a lot)

that is why northern ireland is now referred to more like a domestic disturbance...best kept quiet as there are still political machinations afoot(or rather demographic warfare)

the bolshevik problem is actually reverse psychology.

throw in lots of immigrants(create problem....as done by blair(jesuit)....reid(jesuit),straw(bolshevik))...then provide a convenient scapegoat(this time mad mullahs...although if you now have a good look at WHO owns the media,major companies etc you will see a TOTALLY different picture......and the media can be used to incite hatred against a particular section of the target populace).

then you blame it all on the liberal lefties,and look for a saviour to sort it all out(sounds familiar?).

good news is that the fascists and the bolsheviks hate each other,they both want total domination and will end up fighting each other,after this marriage of convenience between them turns sour.

The Londonderry bombs barely even made the headlines. Just imagine if two bombs had gone of in, say, Leicester, and Muslims were suspected. Schedules would be scrapped to make way for extended news programmes.

Surely it's the other way round? We (UK) would be forced to invade the US as they have a long alleged history of aiding the former terrorists...

Aiding a terrorist when they are in the pre-terrorist stage (a.k.a "freedom fighter" mode) is perfectly allowable. As soon as they are re-categorised as a terrorist everything changes and you need to wage war against them (and install your culture and businesses at every available opportunity). Apparently.

Looks like they like bomb making in the mainland too

I always thought that in my day "the big book of mischief" was mandatory reading for every 13 year old in the country.

In much the same way that you hadn't had a right of passage as a man unless you had seen both versions of animal farm.

I guess times have changed.. [except for this guy :lol: ]

Newry bomb had 600 pounds of explosives and was fully primed

Police have said that a bomb found at the border near Newry contained 600 pounds of explosives and was fully primed.

BBC

Yes it was a 600lb bomb ready to explode but don't worry folks, it wasn't terrorism so everything is absolutely fine.

Well it's obvious the Irish can't be terrorists (no matter what they do), they don't have long beards and aren't dark skinned! :rolleyes:
