Bloody Sunday 1972 - A Critical Reassement

category international | irish social forum | opinion/analysis author Thursday November 01, 2012 14:35author by Nuala Report this post to the editors

What was really going on back then?

I don't read much but as far as I know, commentators and historians have been avoiding the obvious truth about Bloody Sunday 1972

BLOODY SUNDAY 1972

That ridiculous film about Bloody Sunday 1972 keeps repeating on ITV3 TV channel, UK. It came up again a day or two ago. It’s a bit irritating to people who understand what is really going on.

Bloody Sunday 1972 was preplanned and arranged by the ruling group, because the ruling group was desperate to increase support for the Provisional IRA and desperate to increase recruitment to the Provisional IRA.

THE PROVISIONAL IRA WAS THE RULING GROUP’S ABSOLUTE 100% GUARANTEE THAT EVERYTHING WILL ALWAYS REMAIN THE SAME AS IT IS.

And that was the only thing the Provisional IRA was ever fighting for, even if they were too stupid to see it.

The Provisional IRA was always fighting TO KEEP EVERYTHING THE SAME AS IT IS FOR ALL ETERNITY, although they didn’t know it.

When Patrick Hackett and Harry Duggan went over to London, obviously they were too stupid to understand that the Provisional IRA had been founded and funded and armed and strengthened by the ruling group, and that by bombing innocent civilians in London they were fighting TO KEEP EVERYTHING THE SAME AS IT IS FOREVER. That was always the EFFECTIVE aim of the Provisional IRA - to keep everything the same as it is for all eternity.

Dotty O’Connell in Dublin was just an automaton, not knowing that he was fighting TO KEEP EVERYTHING THE SAME AS IT IS FOREVER.

Bobby Sands starved himself to death. Why?

TO KEEP EVERYTHING THE SAME AS IT IS FOREVER.


It’s terribly sad that I wasn’t there to explain it to him - that if he starved himself to death he was fighting for the aim of the Provisional IRA, which was always TO KEEP EVERYTHING THE SAME AS IT IS FOREVER. That is why the ruling group founded, funded, armed and strengthened the Provisional IRA.

The ruling group desperately needed PIRA.

In particular, the Haughey gang in the south of Ireland were ABSOLUTELY SCARED SHITLESS by the NICRA / Summer of Love / Non Violent Civil Disobedience approach.

What if that caught on in the south of Ireland……… ?


The Haughey gang in the south would have been finished if the NICRA ( Northern Ireland Civil Rights Association) approach spread to the south of Ireland. The Haughey gang’s gravy train would have been derailed by the NICRA approach if it spread to the south.

The Haughey gang in the south of Ireland was desperate to get the Provisional IRA up and running, funded and armed, so as to eclipse the non-violent civil disobedience approach, which would have spelled the end of the Haughey gang.

=================

Bloody Sunday 1972 was pre-arranged by the ruling group, in their desperation to increase recruitment to the Provisional IRA, to completely eclipse the NICRA / non-violent passive civil disobedience approach, which was such a deadly threat to the ruling group in the north, to the ruling group in the south and to the ruling group on the British mainland. All three ruling groups desperately wanted and needed to increase recruitment to the Provisional IRA, to keep everything the same as it is for all eternity. So they arranged Bloody Sunday 1972.

The books that have been written about this event make me sigh with weariness.

How can they not see it?

WHEN THE HAUGHEY GANG IN THE SOUTH OF IRELAND HELPED TO FOUND AND FUND AND ARM THE EMBRYONIC PROVISIONAL IRA…….DO YOU THINK THE HAUGHEY GANG CARED ABOUT DEFENDING THE CATHOLICS IN THE GHETTOS OF BELFAST?

The Haughey gang in the south of Ireland were fighting for their survival. They desperately needed to get rid of NICRA and substitute the Provisional IRA.

THE PROVISIONAL IRA WAS THE HAUGHEY GANG’S ABSOLUTE 100% GUARANTEE THAT EVERYTHING WILL ALWAYS REMAIN THE SAME AS IT IS…..BY ECLIPSING THE NICRA APPROACH AND PREVENTING THE NICRA APPROACH FROM SPREADING TO THE SOUTH..

=========================

Sad to say, Harry Duggan, Patrick Hackett, Brendan Dowd ……..etc… when they bombed English cities……. were unknowingly fighting for the ruling group, unknowingly fighting TO KEEP EVERYTHING THE SAME AS IT IS FOR ALL ETERENITY.

The Provisional IRA was a creation of the ruling group, intended to keep everything the same is it is for all eternity.

[I make no apology for writing repetitively because - as far as I know - no one else has been stating this obvious truth and it’s time someone stated it loudly in a public place. I’d love to be told I’m wrong about that.]

And the Provisional IRA have certainly made a very good job of making sure everything will always remain the same as it is for all eternity.

That is why the ruling group created the Provisional IRA - to fight to make sure everything will always stay the same as it is, by eclipsing the NICRA / Summer of Love / non-violent civil disobedience approach.

The Provisional IRA succeeded brilliantly in achieving their aim on behalf of the ruling group, their aim of making sure that everything will remain the same as it is forever.

That is why the Haughey gang founded and funded and armed the Provisional IRA.

That is why Bloody Sunday 1972 was prearranged by the ruling group, to increase recruitment to PIRA, because PIRA was always fighting to KEEP EVERYTHING THE SAME AS IT IS.

That is why the Haughey gang was so anxious to help to found and fund and arm PIRA.

And that is why the ruling group in the north of Ireland and the ruling group in the south of Ireland and the ruling group in Britain colluded quite cold-bloodedly to bring about Bloody Sunday 1972, to increase recruitment to PIRA, because PIRA was always fighting to KEEP EVERYTHING THE SAME AS IT IS FOR ALL ETERNITY………………… unlike NICRA.

It’s like peeling an onion….. the layers of self delusion fall away one by one and a person becomes more and more enlightened as they overcome another layer of self delusion. You can say that NICRA members were a bit naïve in 1968, but they were learning. If NICRA had not been eclipsed by PIRA, the layers of self delusion would have fallen away one by one, and the ruling group in its present form would have been finished.

So that is why the ruling group arranged Bloody Sunday 1972, because they were desperate to increase recruitment to PIRA to eclipse the NICRA approach, which was a ticking timebomb that would destroy the ruling group if not supplanted by a strengthened Provisional IRA. Hence the ruling group arranged for Bloody Sunday 1972 to happen.

The books, the newspaper articles, the dramas and the TV documentaries about that event - are all terribly naïve.
=============================================

It’s perfectly simple, if you have the courage to face it.

Why was JFK murdered?

Why was Bobby Kennedy murdered?

Why was Martin Luther King murdered?

Why did the ruling group arrange quite premeditatedly and quite cold-bloodedly for 14 innocent civilians to be murdered on Bloody Sunday 1972 in Northern Ireland?

The answer is the same in each case.

---------------------------------------------------------

NICRA was modelled on the Martin Luther King approach: non-violent civil disobedience to get rid of bad laws and unfair practices.

This was a deadly threat to the ruling group.

What if it caught on?

The civil rights march in Derry on that day in 1972 had been declared illegal.

Illegal?

If the ruling group bans peaceful protests against injustice, where does that leave us?

Quite correctly, NICRA decided to go ahead with the protest.

But where did that leave the ruling group?

Think about it.

From the ruling group’s standpoint, they had to draw a line there and then in Derry in 1972, TO KEEP EVERYTHING THE SAME AS IT IS FOR ALL ETERNITY, just as they drew a line when they murdered Martin Luther King.

Why the First Battalion British Army Parachute Regiment?

The Parachute Regiment is a killing machine, not a police force to control a non-violent civil rights march.

The RUC and the ‘B Specials’ knew the area and the populace, and were the obvious candidates for policing a non-violent, though ‘illegal,’ civil rights protest march.

I think the reader gets the picture now, if you were a bit slow to see it.

Bloody Sunday 1972 in Northern Ireland was the same type of event as the murder of Martin Luther King, who had inspired the process of non-violent civil disobedience in Northern Ireland. When NICRA decided that they were going to go ahead with their protests when the ‘government’ declared them ‘illegal,’ they ‘crossed a line,’ just as JFK, Bobby K. and Martin Luther King crossed a line, and threatened the ruling group’s monopoly of power.

Bloody Sunday 1972 was completely deliberate and completely pre-planned by the ruling group in the north, by the ruling group in the south and by the ruling group on the British mainland, although only some elements of the three ruling groups were in on the plan.

The Haughey gang in the south were particularly in favour of Bloody Sunday 1972, because they were desperate to increase recruitment to the Provisional IRA, to protect their gravy train, which is the only thing the Provisional IRA was ever fighting for - just to protect the Haughey gang’s gravy train, and generally to KEEP EVERYTHING THE SAME AS IT IS FOR ALL ETERNITY…….that is the only thing the Provisional IRA - a creation of the ruling group - was ever fighting for.

Can you see it now?

The ruling group desperately needed to INCREASE RECRUITMENT TO THE PROVISIONAL IRA so as to completely eclipse the NICRA approach of non-violent civil disobedience and self regulation outside the fake ruling group authority structure, because the NICRA approach was the death knell of the ruling group.

Everything is false.

Forget the FAKE DEBATES in the mainstream media and the books by glory-seeking FAKE ‘historians.’

Just see the world as it actually IS.

Bloody Sunday 1972 was preplanned and fully intentional, because NICRA had crossed a line by marching when the march had been declared ‘illegal.’ So the ruling group had to stop NICRA and substitute PIRA.

NICRA was destroyed by Bloody Sunday 1972, as recruitment to PIRA soared, AS INTENDED BY THE RULING GROUP.

And so, the Provisional IRA spent the next few decades FIGHTING FOR THE RULING GROUP………..

…..above all for the Haughey gang’s gravy train in the south…………..

Remember the satisfied smirk on Charles Haughey’s face when he was acquitted in the ‘arms trial’ in 1970?

He had armed the provos to fight for him and his gravy train in the south…….. FIGHTING TO KEEP EVERYTHING THE SAME AS IT IS FOR ALL ETERNITY,

which was always the only purpose of the Provisional IRA……..

…….an organisation founded, funded, armed and strengthened by the ruling group, to fight for the glorious cause of KEEPING EVERYTHING THE SAME AS IT IS FOR ALL ETERNITY.

In that sense, the Provisional IRA has been a great success!

And that is the only reason why those 14 men were murdered by the ruling group on Bloody Sunday 1972 - TO KEEP EVERYTHING THE SAME AS IT IS FOR ALL ETERNITY and - in particular - to keep the Haughey gang’s gravy train up and running by eclipsing the NICRA approach.

When something like this happens, THE ONLY REFUGE IS DENIAL.

The face-saving efforts are hugely embarrassing to me. For example, I could not bear the pain of reading those books written by Gerry Adams. The pain would be unbearable.

It was bad enough to read the attempts to whitewash Eamon de Valera.

Dorothy Macardle and Thomas Pakenham tried so very hard to whitewash Eamon de Valera……. Some of us see through the whitewash.

Oh, that’s enough for today…………..

REMEMBER BLOODY SUNDAY 1972, THE RULING GROUP’S ASSASSINATION OF NICRA VIA 14 INNOCENT VICTIMS, TO ACHIEVE THE GOVERNMENT’S AIM OF INCREASING RECRUITMENT TO THE PROVISIONAL IRA, TO MAKE SURE EVERYTHING WILL REMAIN THE SAME AS IT IS FOR ALL ETERNITY, WHICH WAS ALWAYS THE ONLY AIM OF THE PROVISIONAL IRA, WHO WERE THE DARLINGS OF THE RULING GROUP; IN FACT THE PROVISIONAL IRA WAS A CREATION OF THE RULING GROUP - NORTH, SOUTH AND EAST!

THE THREE RULING GROUPS IN THESE ISLANDS LOVED THE PROVISIONAL IRA, WHO WERE ALWAYS FIGHTING FOR THE STATUS QUO, UNLIKE NICRA.

Bloody Sunday 1972 in Northern Ireland was the assassination of NICRA, corresponding to the assassination of JFK, Bobby and Mr King, and for the same reason.

You're right on the money Nuala. You could put your words to some music and do a peformance piece ( not being sarcastic ).

author by Red Jedpublication date Sat Nov 03, 2012 12:02Report this post to the editors

A disturbingly accurate assessment Nuala.
You state the obvious, which has quite remarkably remained under-stated over the years.
Everybody too distracted fighting their own corner or being smoke screened by the puppet masters I guess.
But no surprise.
The ruling parties, be they the so called legitimately elected ones or self-appointed paramilitary ones, involved in Irish and British affairs have always been ruthless c**nts when it comes to preserving their powerbase and lining their own pockets.
The deaths of 14 innocent people was a very small price to pay for them, as was the thousands of subsequent casualties that ensued.
And nothing has changed.

Non violent movements are no real threat to power either.

When you start to gain traction, they send in a bunch of black clad gardai to kick the shit out of you at 4am when nobody is around, then tear down your camp, confiscate and dump all your stuff, and in the morning your non violent movement is gone / in disarray

And nobody gives a shit. Too busy watching xfactor, tallafornia and playing with their phones.

Apparently, most people are just too stupid and cowardly to get behind a movement or stand up for themselves these days. They get the government and country they deserve.

I see Fianna Fail are even rising in the polls again. Land of the lost!

Armed Struggle was not PIRA's weakness. The weakness of the Provisionals was that they had little or no political philosophy. They built nothing, no civilian institutions, no soviets, nothing. When they called a ceasefire, all they could think of doing was taking jobs from the enemy, in the enemy's institutions. Listen to Adams or McGuinness, complete blandness and lack of thought - low level footmen.

Armed struggle, combined with Marxist theory, has won many victories, all over the world, and will do again. It would be very naive to think the ruling class will be displaced without a fight.

There is obviously much truth it what you have stated.

However, the "Non violent movements" (in the Republic of Ireland) you refer to are ones (it seems to me) who have little or no knowledge of Article 6.1 of the Constitution of the Republic of Ireland (the supreme law of the Republic of Ireland); and, neither have they any worthwhile knowledge of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights: and/or all of the vast array of national and international legislation based on the socially benign and peace-promoting UDHR principles.

Generally speaking, I don't believe the members of the "Non violent movements" are to blame in any major -- at least not up to now -- for such ignorance regarding such socially important matters: for the simple reason that such subjects are STILL not taught at school: thanks to the "ruling elites" (I believe) who have a vested interest in making sure that total ignorance of such subjects amongst the vast majority of the population is not only in their best interests, but essential for their survival.

Fortunately, the Internet can now provide an informal remedy for the many who have been short-changed during their years of formal education regarding such extremely important aspects of what a good-quality education needs to include (as I see things, at least).

Republic of Ireland citizens might also usefully keep in mind that the Vatican, despite much encouragement to join the United Nations, declined to do so: which is possibly why the Roman Catholic Church, which demands and gets such an enormous amount of influence over the Republic of Ireland educational system, has completely ignored the following excerpt from the PREAMBLE of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights:

"Now, Therefore THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY proclaims THIS UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS as a common standard of achievement for all peoples and all nations, to the end that every individual and every organ of society, keeping this Declaration constantly in mind, shall strive by TEACHING AND EDUCATION to promote respect for these rights and freedoms and by progressive measures, national and international, to secure their universal and effective recognition and observance, both among the peoples of Member States themselves and among the peoples of territories under their jurisdiction."
