Movies the English will never understand

Never seen it before, is it good? I find sometimes films that center around Ireland or Irish people feel corny in how they ham up that 'proud Irish' aesthetic.

Colonialism creates a "they're savages, we need to civilise them (oppress and kill) and take their stuff" mindset. When you dehumanise people, as the English did to us, you can do anything and it will be justified.

Catholicism and repeated Irish attempts to get rid of the English/being 'stubborn' in the face of colonialism only increased the hatred.

I dunno man. Unless you're counting some shitty Boston cop movies or something, there's really fuck all genuine hits (ie both commercial and critical) like The Guard or The Wind That Shakes The Barley (even then "hit" is a relative term).

I mean, not many people came away from Patriot Games with "muh Celtic pride", did they?

I'm sure a few did, on both sides of The Atlantic, mind you, but to even imply the existence of these people is slander and attempts to undermine my growing political base which threatens the hegemony you've held on the Dáil for too long

Just like with Canadians and Americans, Russians and Ukrainians, Aussies and.kiwis etc

>90% of these countries speak English now

colonialism is a hell of a drug, your Frankenstein's Monster of the US is responsible for the modern growth in the use of the language, and even then nobody is as monolingual as the Anglos

Irish is growing, even the most ardent of Loyalists in East Belfast are taking up Irish classes. The language will grow

You, however, have lost control of your language. Americans will always dictate what the rules are in the future, and the subculture of Black American slang will hold more water on the global scale than your own indigenous dialects.

That in itself sounds quite sad

hearing foreigners try and tell you about your country in general is pretty annoying. Most young brits especially though are normally pretty ignorant about ireland and the troubles. I don't think we were ever taught about it at school and i did history until i was 18.
I suppose it's kind of a good thing in a way. It's not even a thought in most young brits heads when they meet Irish people. I dunno how it is for you guys though, probably a more sensitive issue.

>>65043468
But literally no one will ever speak Irish outside of Ireland
The reason English is even spoken worldwide is because of the Brutish Empire
The Irish couldn't make an empire for shit

well that's true too.

When I was in second year this Scouser girl was moved to our school and we had our own residential Nationalist (from Tyrone, even though we were in the Midlands) question her about her allegiances when she first came over. She honestly said she'd kill the Taoiseach for England.

After a while, she said she didn't realise how the English were such cunts and came over to a more Republican train of thought

Colonialism was a good thing. In hundreds of years, it will get to Roman Empire status - modernising these countries and forcing them into the modern world. Building a reliable infrastructure.
Look.at pre colonial USA, Australia, Canada compared to those countries now. Heck, even look at India or Egypt

after a while, yeah

you start to see the difference between Northerners an Southerners as you grow older and the Northerners seem alright
They seem to have that soul, especially Mancs and Scousers (but then again that might be the Irish influence)

either way, they come out with songs like this which I can see being written by an Irish person

Yes it's a universal taboo I agree. And I don't blame most brits for not knowing when there is no education on anglo-irish relations but there is a lot of ignorance that really isn't conducive to peace. There is a similar porblem in the Irish Republic who largly escaped the troubles and don't wish to know anything about the issues in the north. Because of the legacy, we are rightly educated on it and less prone to repeat the same mistakes

Anyone who uses political views as the basis of their identity is almost certainly a wanker desu, that goes for anything, unionist, republican, communist whatever. Fine to care about something or be passionate but still.

the Irish language is FOR the Irish people. Language and culture are intertwined, why would you want other cultures speaking your language?

is your obsession with making everybody else speak your language and your indifference to losing your capital city connected?

Why would we want an Empire? It means short-term economic gains and long-term indigenous loss, as you have so wholeheartedly shown

Yeah it's kinda sad in a way. Similar to how South Koreans basically couldn't give a fuck about reuniting with the north anymore. It's a tricky spot for the british though, i'm surprised its not mentioned more

I'm a republican with family who suffered at the ends of the british state in the conflict but I have a lot of respect and love for British people and culture. We're not the same nation and it was right to fight to make that distinction but there is a great brotherly relationship between the islands beneath the painful scars

there were very prominant Republican politicians in the Republic who cared about the North, and there were many instances where the Troubles bled over to the Republic

If I remember right, the disposition of "caring" about the North while not declaring it in an upfront way began with Haughey

don't forget that the Republic almost started an invasion of the North in 1969, and that the Government of the Republic played a very instrumental role in the Peace Process
>>
>>65043525

More people speak irish in the USA than Ireland. So no, you're incorrect
>>
>>65043525
They could if they had the entire island. They would be able to dominate the Atlantic and northern sea with the help of their hiberian occupying government in the upper echelon of the American military.

Keeping the north separate is beyond English pride, it is essential to propping up their longstanding role as vice-moneymen in chief to judes in the west.

well personally I consider the "British" identity to be an artificial identity, forged intentionally to spread the more Germanic aspects of the island to the Celtic areas in order to achieve cultural and political hegemony, maligning regional cultural and religious customs in the process

however, certain areas on the island are alright. Of course, I like the Highlands and the Hebrides and the other West-Coast islands of Scotland, along with Wales, and the north of England, but the south of England and a lot of the lowlands of Scotland just suck

Relations are better now than it's ever been but definatly we need more education and understanding between each other to recognise our conflicting interests in Northern Ireland, for it will always be the elephant in the room, it cannot be overlooked (in the same way as Israel/palestine)

>>65044330
I'm not saying all Irish in the Republic didn't care, the fact the border counties are strongholds for Sinn Fein is proof they know what actually happened. And I know the republic also suffered some spillover but for the majority of people there it was about as far away as Syria is now. There were many good people from the republic who helped in the north, sadly there were also many others who put their heads in the sand because it was too depressing to bear witness

I like Haughy as a populist strong man but there were much opposition to his stance in the Dail. Plus he was a pragmatist over nationalist principles, his concern for the economy was greater than what happened int he north, the same with every Dail party and leader in government

It's not my identity so it's not my place to tell those who do call themselves British their identity is not legitimate, that only breeds ignorance and hostility. The Protestant Unionist community do call themselves British here, I accept that.
