Sunday World Dirty Tricks And Strabane Sinn Fein

Sunday World Dirty Tricks And Strabane Sinn Fein

Strabane IRSP recently became aware that Sunday World 'reporter' Hugh Jordan had contacted members of Strabane Sinn Fein requesting a meeting as he wanted to write a story about "the Irps in the local area".

Following his initial contact, a number of Sinn Fein members have met Mr Jordan on several occasions over the last few weeks. Strabane IRSP are aware of the identities of all involved.
We have decided to make this public at this time because we suspect that these meetings between Jordan and Strabane Sinn Fein will result in yet more sensationalist black propaganda aimed at members of the IRSP.

Some time ago another journalist Anton Mc Cabe wrote a story in La (Irish Language paper) alleging that Willie Gallagher lived in luxury with a big fancy car etc etc. Each and every one of Mc Cabes allegations were disproved with evidence at a later meeting between senior members of the IRSP and Mr McCabe and his NUJ representative Eamonn MC Cann. Anton McCabe indicated that his source for the story was a local senior member of Sinn Fein.
We not not know what stories and lies will be printed but we suspect that Mr Jordan is targeting Strabane IRSP at the behest of one of his Special Branch friends.

The enemies of the working class fear the positive contributions made by the IRSP; that is why they slander their charactar and avoid discussing politics.

Solidarity with our comrades under assault.

It's both sad and strange to hear that 'Sinn Féin' Strabane have joined the 'Sunday World' investigative team - strange because the Sunday World and its ‘Lord of the Crime Reports’, Mr. Paul Williams, never had anything good to say about 'Sinn Féin' at all.

Most people in Ireland don't believe the majority of the articles written in the Sunday World. Nobody buys the Sunday World to hear the truth or an honest and fair report, because the Sunday World does not do honest and fair reports; it thrives on sensationalism and there’s feck all sensationalism in a fair and balanced report (boring!) and, sure, it wouldn’t sell the newspaper anyway.

No, the Sunday World can’t do honest and balanced reports about the IRSP, as Sunday World readers would be outraged to find out that the IRSP might actually be engaged in activities that are just, worthwhile and good - jaysus, that wouldn't do at all, we can't have revolutionary movements doing good things, it's much more comfortable to label them as the evil warlords, and the Sunday World as the good messengers of bad news. Of course, there is the added bonus for the Sunday World reader, it makes them feel good about themselves on a Sunday, unless of course they look inward at themselves and question what sort of people they are, sitting there reading such malicious and vicious shite about real people on a Sunday (very unchristian of them too) in order for them to feel a sense of ‘good’.

Perhaps, the Sunday World would be better employed doing an investigative report on the extreme good fortune of Bertie Ahern and the ‘8th Wonder of the World’: Bertie’s generous landlord, Mr. Wall’; and more importantly, on the on-going destructive works that he is permitting to occur at Tara and how its surrounding lands came to be lost to a motorway!

So long as newspapers like the Sunday World keep reporting on revolutionary political organisations that are not in power, such as the IRSP, it diverts the general public's attention away from Bertie and his band of corrupt warriors who are in power - and have the potential to do so much harm to the majority on this island.

Maybe a miracle might happen and the IRSP might get a fair and balanced report from the Sunday World after all, and the IRSP are prematurely up in arms for nothing, and maybe Bertie was just lucky with his generous landlord and all that money he received for no apparent reason was because he was really such a charitable case?
