Not defending it, but I'm sock of people like you who view the troubles in the North through the lens of anti nationalist propaganda, whether that is because you are too young to remember the 50's, 60's and 70's or from the safe haven of the Irish Republic.
The selection of men for execution on the basis of their religion is a sectarian act and cannot be defended or excused by any true Republican.
And do you know what precipitated Kingsmill?
Theres no confusion in the minds of the vast majority who came out in their thousands to celebrate the centenary by taking the Rising back from the murder gang who besmirched true Republicanism for the last 40 years by their sectarian campaign.One word. Kingsmill.
No one pays much heed to the revisionists.
Theres always a but. I condemn Greysteel and Loughlinisland as well. I don't differentiate between sectarian slaughter.
I have no doubt there are Loyalists who are like you except they defend Greysteel and condemn Kingsmill.
I take exception to this, I do not and have never condoned or supported violence against any target, whether state or civilian. However if you are going to condemn Republican violence in the current era 1960 to now then be consistent and condemn Tone, Pearse, De Valera, Collins et al. You also need to view it in context which you have blindly failed to do. Understanding the origins of a conflict or violent act is not the same as condoning it. But you with your biased analysis are obviously incapable of doing so.
