While it would be easy to laugh of comments made by Boris Johnson in relation to Britain’s illegal border in Ireland, this would be a mistake.
Johnson’s comments, suggesting that policing the British imposed partition of Ireland would be the same as policing the border of two London boroughs, are actually very telling and give an insight into the current thinking of Brit Imperialism.
Johnson’s comments demonstrate what we already know. British Imperialism views all of Ireland as its colonial possession with puppet, compliant parliaments in Leinster House and Stormont.
For British Imperialism, the Free State is still very much part of the empire. As we approach Brexit the British Imperialist establishment will make more and more overtures to ensure it can keep Ireland under its control.
The Free State is completely subservient to the interests of Imperialism, British, EU and US, while the Six Counties remains under direct military occupation.
The only way to end imperialism domination of Ireland is to rebuild a genuine people’s movement, a movement led by the Irish Working Class that challenges capitalism and Imperialism, overthrows the 6 and 26 County states and re-establishes the All Ireland Socialist Republic, proclaimed in 1916.
Play your part- Join the Resistance Today!
It has long been known that elements in the Blueshirt elite and their support base want to see all of Ireland as a part of the Brit Empire. The class interests of the Blueshirt elite are completely tied to the interests of Anglo-American imperialism.
Therefore, comments made by Roscommon based Free State senator Frank Feighan in 2016 that the 26 County State should consider formally rentering the Brit Commonwealth, should not come as a surprise, but should be seen as a kite on behalf on the Blueshirt government and the Free State elite.
Frank Feighan is therefore not an isolated crank, but a representative of the interests of the parasitic pro Imperialist class that maintains itself by ensuring the exploitation of the Irish Working Class and robbery of our wealth and resources.
Since the signing of the Good Friday Agreement in 1998, Ireland’s West Brits, long represented by Fine Gael, have felt comfortable enough to openly advocate there prob Imperialist position and to openly advocate for Free State to rejoin the Brit Empire.
This is open class war. This ‘commonwealth agenda’ has resulted in increased visits to Ireland by England so called Royal family, attempts to normalise the ongoing Brit Occupation and ongoing recruitment of young Irish Citizens to the Brit military and the attempts to equate those who died for Irish Freedom with those who died as Imperialist cannon fodder in World War One.
All manifestations of Brit Imperialism in Ireland must be challenged no matter where they raise their heads.
Irish Socialist Republicans are opposed to British interference in Ireland. We aim to end the ongoing Brit Occupation of Ireland and Reestablish the All Ireland Republic proclaimed in 1916. Any attempts to promote the commonwealth agenda must be opposed.
We would like to take this opportunity to remind Frank Feighan and the Blueshirt elite that the people of Ireland will serve neither King nor Kaiser but Ireland.
