Star Wars theory
Does anyone speak fluent Sinn Fein? As usual I am having trouble trying to understand the recently described master strategist party. The Star Wars theory is amusing coming from the Banquet man: ‘the dark forces are at work.’ When exactly was it that the dark forces ceased to be at work in the North?
It looks like their own policy of cooperating and insisting that republicans public pass on information to the dark forces has returned to bite them on their chief’s arse.
Mc Guinness, a former Provo, is now boasting that senior members of the security forces don’t agree with the “minority of the dark forces” on Adams detention. There has to be some irony in this as he outs himself as hobnobbing with senior members of the crown forces.
The privilege of betrayal? He gets to phone the head of the dark forces’ at number 10. I would assume that only dedicated high level cooperation with the foreign government that occupies the North would grant such privilege. I can’t recall him questioning the arrest of other republicans.
I am perplexed at SF supporters who don’t question the extent of Mc Guinness’s involvement with the British government and the security forces. If he is pro- Irish unity he has me fooled as he appears very comfortable with his high level British friends.
It’s all in the timing and of course it was the “dark forces” that mysteriously manipulated Adams’ mind and told him to show up at Antrim cop shop with his solicitor. And prior to that they told him to inform us all that he is more than willing to cooperate and vindicate himself.
Adams and his brief arrange this and the SF spin-a-yarn factory goes into overdrive blaming everyone and thing apart from Adams who voluntarily presented himself to the crowns cops.
Why did the master - strategically advanced - mind of Adams not wait until after the elections? Sounds like the romance between Adams and Mc Guinness might be straining. Did Adams pick the time deliberately? With the Banquet man hobnobbing with their queen and apparently running the neo-republican North is Adams feeling the pressure of being usurped by the Banquet man?
You would think they were as thick as thieves and would have discussed the issue of Adams voluntarily handing himself over to the cops? It would appear that is not the case perhaps Mc Guinness is too British for Adams likings.
Is this a sign that the SF leadership are splintering and is that the reason they are blaming everyone else? Did Adams not discuss his voluntary intentions and the possible ramifications it may have on the elections?
From the Banquet man down through the ranks, from all their ranting it would appear they were caught on the hop by their own leader’s decision which is highly suspicious as one would believe something this potentially critical would have been discussed amongst the “trusted” leadership.
The less likely possibility being that it is an pre-election stunt to make sure SF are the news and can sell the sob story to the Free Sate that they are being hounded by the British in an attempt to weaken SF and push them further away from achieving their goal of Irish reunification.
Something for the hard line Shins to chew the fat on: did your leader have himself arrested pre-election is he out to sabotage the rise of banquet man number 2, Marty. I.5?
Odd the shins are as usual blaming everyone and not asking why their leader volunteered and arranged his own arrest. Oh, that’s right, it was the dark forces, the same dark forces that arrest other republicans. The same dark forces that the neo republicans can never praise too much.
Strange how they use language from the days they swear they have left behind. Very threatening language that disagrees with their commitment to peace persona.
Wind your necks in show faith in your leader, obviously he knows what he is doing. Calm down, this is all part of his master plan.
‘There is no place in our society for such militant language.’
Why the lack of faith in your leader’s decision and why look to blame “others” for his voluntary action?
If I was an SF follower I would be asking why the leader made himself available to the crown forces pre-election, why was he in such a hurry to assist the cops as to my knowledge they didn’t appear to be in a hurry to question him? Why was it done in the clandestine manner? Being the leader of SF he should have made it public that he intended to arrange his own arrest.
Reading what SF and their followers have to say they seem a little over eager to lay blame with “others” taken the focus away from the leader’s action, spinning yarns and crying “tout(s)”. By using the same nonsense I could easily say that Adams arranged his own arrest therefore he is a collaborator.
On this issue I don’t believe the hype and don’t believe that number 2 was not aware of Adams intentions. I would take a wild stab in the dark and assume some of his high ranking cop friends would have informed him even if Adams didn’t.
Could it be just a show to keep the unionists happy with Adams extended stay and if he walks away a vindicated man that will be a boost for him and the SF public image?
I am not gloating over his voluntary arrest as the crown forces’ record speaks volumes when it comes to the law and republicanism. It appears more staged than anything else and given the commentaries from the shins that refuse to question Adams’ decision only adds to the suspect circumstances.
Either way, staged or not, perhaps the SF camp may now understand that to the Brits if you have outrun your service to the crown then you are no longer an asset to the occupiers.
Hypocrisy is a strange state. SF shouldn’t be inciting hatred and anger towards others and shouldn’t be questioning the PSNI for doing their job, the same job that SF tells people to support.
On this issue, Adams for his own reasons decided to promote himself and brought the issue to the fore. Perhaps he was informed the PSNI were going to seek his arrest, and his ego and need for control made him jump the gun.
