|Ruth Dudley Edwards: Gerry Adams's hate campaign against the Protestants of Ulster shows no sign of slowing|
The methods change to suit the times, but the present guise remains malignant, writes Ruth Dudley Edwards
Belfast Telegraph November 27 2017
Throughout his adult life, though the rhetoric has changed and the IRA has decommissioned, Gerry Adams's malign mission to demonise and demoralise Ulster Protestants has continued unchecked.
The justification of IRA murders by targeting anyone in uniform, or indeed anyone providing them with anything from petrol to pizzas, meant that most of the Protestant population was fair game.
But as the Provos realised that they had to abandon their failed military strategy, they set about undermining unionist culture, and refashioned history to render perpetrators as victims, victims as perpetrators, and all unionists as bullies and bigots.
In the 1990s the objective of the brilliant republican propaganda campaign was to paint every member of a loyal institution as a demon - provoking them to fury by covertly setting up intransigent IRA-led residents' groups to block parades while reciting to TV cameras pious rhetoric about terrified Catholics and supremacist Orangemen.
Catholic fears of loyalist pogroms were whipped up and there were arson attacks on Orange halls and boycotts of Orangemen's businesses.
In 1996, Mr Adams's heartland the Falls Road acquired an enormous mural with the heading 'Not All Traditions Deserve Respect'. It featured a hooded and robed Ku Klux Klan horseman with an Orange sash riding across a green landscape littered with skulls.
It was Mr Adams himself who gave the game away a few months after Orangemen had been vilified the world over when he was recorded gleefully telling a private Sinn Fein conference that the mayhem at Drumcree and elsewhere had been the result of "three years of work by Sinn Fein activists. They are the type of scene changes that we have to focus on and develop and exploit".
And so they did, and so they do, now misusing the Irish language and human rights under the guise of equality as a "Trojan horse to break these b******s" - i.e the DUP.
"The #DUPConference seems like nothing less than a KKK rally," tweeted an obliging Sinn Fein supporter. "Laughing off the denial of basic human rights."
As Mr Emerson chillingly confirms, Catholic schoolchildren have been brainwashed into believing that IRA violence was "regrettable yet inevitable and almost certainly warranted".
Having taught his movement that the IRA could more cleverly attack its neighbours through undermining their sense of culture and identity, Mr Adams claims to be a man of peace.
Mr Adams's hideous mission of hate continues unabated.
Ulster Protestants consider themselves to be a separate nation. This nation they call Ulster
