What right does this super-deluded, super-inflated “Belfast County Grand Master”
have to dictate what academic or leisure choices people make?.
Maybe he’s annoyed about the new Irish language centre that opened in east Belfast (Loyalist stronghold until it voted Alliance) to cope with an increasing number of learners.
The Turas centre, based in the Skainos building on the Newtownards Road, houses a classroom, offices and a library/social area.
Maybe he thinks Protestants shouldn’t learn anything apart from what the Orange Order approves so that they will stay stuck in 1690 –
Did no one ever tell him
George Chittick said he was misquoted.
What he actually said was
“A word of warning to Protestants who go to school to learn. No. Don’t do school, kids. Education is part of the Fenian agenda. Sinn Fein/IRA are infiltrating our schools and indoctrinating our children”
In fact the Protestant Coalition has just intimidated a teacher out of her job. SF Councillor
25-year-old Catherine Seeley,
who sits on Craigavon Borough Council and teaches at
in north Belfast, was subjected to online abuse after her political affiliation became known.
Threatening graffiti was daubed close to the school telling her to quit her post.
Willie Frazer condemned threats made against the teacher, but said “her role at the school should be “looked at” because of her political views“.
The Protestant Coalition’s website states it is an “anti-politics, political party” whose priority is “the empowerment of the PUL (Protestant Unionist Loyalist) community”.
It’s enough to make
Trying to ban plays like
because it was ‘blasphemous’ really empowers the PUL
Typical joke in the play:
“Good news – I got Him down to only 10. Bad news – No adultery is still in there!”
had to be wheeled in to say “the cancellation of the play interfered with freedom of speech” which “could only be restricted “in limited circumstances”.
The ‘artistic board’ of Newtownabbey council backtracked quickly
Here’s what other Protestant Unionists think of this type of behaviour
