NI is: 99 percent white Far right wing No feminists No SJWs allowed guns and open carry permits Proud of their cultural Patriotic no gay marriage or abortion everyone is religious best primary school education in Europe Ireland: filled with feminists bringing in loads of non whites not allowed to be patriotic not allowed guns legalised gay marriage and abortion not religious
>>596910 Considering NI was a terrorist filled shithole for years and is now one of the poorest parts of the U.K. and Ireland has one of the highest HDIs and standard of livings in the world I wouldn't be quick to praise one over the other because one is more traditional
Because for the most part it's populated by Scottish and Northern English settlers (often referred to as Ulster-Scots) who identify as British rather than Irish, a largely religious island still; the protestant north would rather stay with the United Kingdom than be subject to the devoutly Catholic Republic of Ireland.
All those Yanks and Micks who claim that Ireland should have the territory because they were the majority a few hundred years ago, are usually the same lot who will be the first to denounce Israel and support Palestine despite the fact that in this case the Israelis would have the same historical claim as the Republic of Ireland
25% is the number who actively vote for Sinn Fein in Northern Ireland (50% or less turnout in elections though) , and probably 99% of people in the Republic of Ireland want it, so thats pretty much a clear majority.
>>596969 Many of Northern Ireland's 'protestants' are non-practicing and the Protestant church is split into multiple denominations, whilst the Catholics in Ulster are more militant and devout in their support due to their minority status, while those who identify with neither catholicsm or protestant are more likely to support the status quo than joining the Republic of Ireland owing to their more socially conservative status, cultural and family ties, as well as the better performing British economy.
>>596958 Well, probably 99% of people in the United States would support annexing the isle in its entirety as the 51st state. Compare our 320 million to your 6 million, that's pretty much a clear majority.
I've seen and met loads of obviously gay people in northern ireland who are married and have kids and everybody is in denial about their gayness despite being blatant flaming queers, its only an ad hominem if you are one yourself or your dad is.
>>596998 I should mention your source is the Irish times, a paper based in the Republic of Ireland, and that 57.6% Catholic figure is radically different from the census result only 1 year earlier with the country classed as only 40.8% Catholic
57.6% of school children are Catholic and Catholics are the majority in every age group below 40-44, so obviously Irish Catholics will be the majority very soon and will likely climb to 65% of the population in some time, and then inevitably vote for unification since only about 2% of Catholics vote for actual Unionist parties since those politicans are heavily involved in the Orange Order which is KKK style anti-Catholic organisation.
There is pretty much no scenario where Irish unification wont happen, the predictable resurgence of Unionist terrorist violence against Catholics due to the unstoppable demographic shift will only speed the process up.
>>596954 >despite the fact that in this case the Israelis would have the same historical claim as the Republic of Ireland >steppe nigger khazaris, spaniard sephardis and ashkenazis have the same claim to israel as the irish do to ulster schlomo pls go
Most catholics I know are pretty passive about it these days and just want to keep the status quo, I would even go so far to say if anything they lean towards the UK. As for Sinn Fein, pretty much everyone has lost faith in Stormont these days. Only the die hards vote really.
Perform ethnic cleansing by transplanting a bunch of Protestant Britons to Ulster and then pretend like it belongs to the UK because the "people" who aren't Irish in the first place would rather stay British
How do you define a "republican"? And anyway how is some anecdote evidence of truth, a couple of people said something so everybody feels the same way? If I was a "republican" or anything else I would not tell somebody I was when there is a high chance they would get offended. Would a racist actually tell black people they are racist, etc?
>>597253 Telling someone you're a unionist/nationalist really isn't a point of conflict outside of places like the Shankill Road, contrary to what some would have you believe. >>597279 I get that my one experience clearly doesn't represent the entire country, but most people who actually look into the whole issue would see that it's just logical to stay in the UK
>>597331 >Telling someone you're a unionist/nationalist really isn't a point of conflict outside of places like the Shankill Road, contrary to what some would have you believe. This. I even call my taig friends taigs
>>604238 >their ancestors migrated first to Scotland before coming make to Ulster, making them the true natives This bit isn't very contentious. There has always been very strong cultural and ethnic exchange between Ulster and western Scotland. It's not all a product of the Ulster Plantation.
