Northern Irish Protestant Politicians are assholes, reject IRA's disarmament as inadequate

News Item:
Protestant politicians rejected the Irish Republican Army's disarmament as inadequate, and said Tuesday they would not share power in Northern Ireland's government with the IRA's political party Sinn Fein for years — if ever.

Today's ascendant Protestant hard-liners said they would not revive power-sharing until the IRA disbands.

Other protestant political demands, not mentioned in the press:
  • All Catholics to wear their underwear on their heads on Sundays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays.

  • Catholics to be given financial incentives to marry Africans, because it is much easier these days to hate people based on skin color than on religion.

  • Catholics to participate in Orange Order marches, as evidence of a willingness to heal historical wounds in Northern Ireland.

  • Catholics to relocate to New Orleans.

Although their demands are not coordinated or consistent, it seems clear that the Norther Irish Protestant Politicians are disinclined to disarm their most fearsome weapon: hate.

Current mood: unenlightened.
