I'm told that in parts of Pennsylvania, the people speak English with an Irish accent. Because c.1850-1900 a bunch of German immigrants arrived and worked as coal miners under foremen who were themselves recent Irish immigrants and still had the accent. So these were people lower on the totem pole than Irishmen.
(And both groups were working with a "company store" situation, with child labor, in coal mines. Obviously very privileged.)
I suspect there were Irish in those mines as well :)
The only privilege any of them received was to be first in line for Black Lung disease.
Can confirm. My father's oldest brother was a miner and dropped dead in the street at a semi young age. By the way, I am from PA and am 73 years old, so do the math. Yeah, I want reparations not only for the Irish, but for the many ancestors I lost in the Civil War. One even died in Andersonville.
Why you are a spring chicken! I am 76 :)
And ok, I think reparations seem fair enough.
Although I could also go with no more Fed taxes, political term limits, an end to war, halving the fed budget each year until its extinction, an end to the UN, an end to WHO, WEF, stuff like that :)
Hey, I like you old timer!
Thanks! I like you too! Happy St Pat's Day Pepe!!!
Lol, such wholesome banter we have. I like both of you. :-D
Thank you, we're here all week.... ;)
Yep! A couple of other European immigrant groups did this too. I was reading an illustrated book of how very privileged they were. If you were 11 or so, you could graduate from picking rocks out of heaps of coal coming down a chute, with your bare hands in the winter, to get one of the cool jobs underground. To protect you from overly dry throat while manning the coal chutes they'd issue you some chewing tobacco.
I remember asking my father what the song about Moonshine was about.
He explained that these people were very poor, the only work available was hard labor for dirt wages in the mines. To avoid the mines they set up stills and sold their own liquor.
The mines got the Feds to go after them with a vengeance to destroy any ability to earn money other than mining. He then told me how he and his brother would make gin in their bathtub with their father during the depression.
He grew up in the Red Hook district of NY, born in 1917, his stories of the Depression would curl your hair.
Which is something to remember the next time some dumbass neocon drones on about Capitalism and muh "Free Market." We've NEVER had a free market, the government has ALWAYS been the enforcer of corporate interests.
Very true, no argument on that from me
Did you ever think to yourself "the Jamaican accent sounds a bit Irishy?" There's a reason for that. The first slaves to Jamaica were Irish Catholics. About 1.5 million Irish men, women, and children were summarily kidnapped and sent to the west indies in the early 1600s. In fact, in 1619 a group of Irish children landed in Jamestown months before the supposed first African Slaves. There is actually a pretty fascinating story about the early settlement of Irish in Florida too but at that time is was occupied by Spain.
Yep, the Irish built the world if you think about it :)
Lol god that statement would put some people on suicide watch.
One can hope, far too many take themselves far too seriously :)
Fuck Oliver Cromwell, may he burn in Hell for all eternity.
Found Thomas More’s account.
[spez] wrong Cromwell. History was never my strong smoot. Imma leave it just to plug A Man for All Seasons (1966).
So you're saying all those middle eastern folks living in the Desert Southwest have just been slave shuffled there by the same folks ?
Ah, the "P" word. The left uses "privilege" to obfuscate the reality that children do better with both "parents".
People with so-called "privilege" are simply standing on the benefits of the hard work of their parents, and their grandparents.
Life isn't fair. Fix your shithole culture and your kids can be just like civilized people.
Lol obviously privileged. Kek.
How dare you flaunt their white privilege like that!!!! I'm actually SHAKING right now!!!
Family story: one great, great uncle came to US from Ireland at the start of the Civil War and was forced into the US Army.
Being good with horses was put in charge of a string. When he got the chance he stole the horses, ran them to Mexico, sold the horses.
At the end of the war, came back to NY, opened a bar. Another great, great uncle was a member of the Honor Guard at Grant's Tomb. This we have docs on, the other guy not so much.
Was waiting on someone to post this information. The Irish were forced to fight for the union. They got off the boat, and a rifle was put in their hand.
Yep, and if you were a US citizen you could get out of military service by paying a fee.
As the family story goes, he was absolutely furious when he got pulled in.
I believe at one time there were signs that said, "No Irish Need Apply."
Not sure though.
Yes there were, many were wooden and hung out side of stores, offices.
The way their usually read was "Irish need not apply" My family has one of the signs.
Why early US railroad volunteers from Ireland are responsible for recent train derailments
How about the staged or at least exaggerated potato famine to hide the mass abductions of the Irish to be forced into "indentured servitude" that most never escaped...
Yep and much of the deaths were caused by the English taking the other crops to the continent to sell because there were bad harvests in Europe.
Didn't know that, thank you.
Pay to play is a feature of these people. Never seen such a level of forelock tugging in my entire life, they are pathetic.
Thank you! Really great links I wasn't familiar with any of them :)
Divide and conquer? Yes.
Thank you, look forward to reading them
Saint Patrick was enslaved
And the Irish don’t get their panties in a wad like blacks and white women by proxy when their culture is appropriated and caricaturized.
Thank you! and -- Dia Duit! (God be with you) My Great Grandparents came here from Ireland in the 1880's, long after slavery had ended. My parents were the first generation to go to college and become middle class, I definitely do not come from a "privileged" background.
I'm so Irish my great grandfather misspelled our family name on the birth certificate of my grandfather because he pub crawled his way to the birth registry. Our family tree still has that misspelling on 4 different continents now.
Irish vote overwhelmingly liberal in the Midwest and east coast. In fact, they are responsible for most of the Union bullshit nowadays
I remember seeing 4chan infographic that lays out how many Irish CEOs occupy massive companies. It never really occurred to me because we always talk about the Italian mafia in the US but the Irish were the OGs. Some boast about the Irish getting kicked out of the mafia business by La Cosa Nostra but maybe they just elevated their place to something less brutal and more hidden.
Don't forget that there's significantly more Irish in the US than there are in Ireland, though. So, statistically they might not be terribly overrepresented.
Damn it's funny to think about that there are only 25% more blacks in the US than there are Irish. If anything they are way underrepresented in Movies.
Let me help you out. There are 9.7% of Irish descent, 14.6% are black.
Irish Americans or Hiberno-Americans (Irish: Gael-Mheiriceánaigh) are Americans who have full or partial ancestry from Ireland. About 32 million Americans — 9.7% of the total population — identified itself as being Irish in the 2020 American Community Survey conducted by the U.S Wiki
According to the 2018 United States Census estimates, the United States population is approximately 14.6% Black or African American
It seems like the Irish, at least east of the Mississippi, have found a way to convert their mob into a more legal one, being that they dominate the positions of judges, commissioners, union bosses, councilmen, and other public capacities. It’s almost like a poor man’s version of Jews
Irish and Jews often are in business together, check out any law firm and you will see it.
The Irish are geared towards politics, careers, businesses that need levels of management and espec ones that generate long term security.
Seems like a blueprint.
Well, f.... seems like I havent been living up to my Irish heritage then
The Irish have a political gift, 800 years of resisting English rule made them very good at organizing.
A saying of my father's. Heaven gave the Irish whiskey because without it, they would rule the world :)
Ireland is one of the biggest cucked nations in Europe. They've imported so much of the 3rd world in the name of diversity and 90% took the covid poison... They're fucking retards.
Yea they organise... Their own demise.
The Irish on the east coast early on took over the police, the fire depts, the utilities, then the political offices.
Famous Irish politicians early on such James M. Curley in Boston (my cousin 3x removed) got a lock on govt and the Irish held it for generations.
That early history is how you get the predominance of Irish in unions and of Irish liberals on the east coast.
The following is a true story:
Kamala Harris's father has kept detailed records of their families history including the amount of slaves which was massive that they owned on their Jamaican sugar Plantation. Not only that there is a curious story of the first shipment of Irish slaves brought over to work on a Jamaican sugar Plantation. Undoubtedly these Irish men were probably way laid or found drunk somewhere and thrown onto a ship because when they sobered up and found out that they would be worked to death on some God forsaken sugar Plantation and burn into blisters in the Sun they had a revolt and they all escaped and the patriarch of the Harris family had to hide in bushes as they searched for him to kill him. No one knows what happened to this shipment of Irishman but it is obvious that they just bled into the regular population of people which is why Genetically speaking a lot of the island blacks are highly mixed with Scott Irish DNA including Rihanna Beyonce and literally most blacks that I know. I believe that I'm owed some type of reparations from Kamala Harris
"Give Ireland back to the Irish... Make Ireland Irish today!"
Sir Paul McCartney
The Irish (government) is trying to give Ireland away to "immigrants". Theve been doing things like sending 1000 migrants to a village with only 3000 residents, basically overwhelming them. Shits crazy.
Last I heard that Ireland will be minority Irish by 2040.
Ireland was my backup plan if shit went completely to hell here cause I could get citizenship through my (late) grandparents, but it looks like that's off the table now. Not that I'd bail on the US, though.
Heres a history of St Patricks Day and the Irish migrants. https://patriotrealm.com/index.php/2699-the-history-of-st-patricks-day
Irish and native American here; first ever Twitter account got banned (years ago) because I "have no place to speak about slavery". Avicenna (old free thought blogs blogger) got me banned, a month later was kicked out of his blog network and cancelled by sponsors because his ENTIRE CAREER was plagaridm after plagiarism.
Even Rock Ridge didn't want the Irish.
And don’t forget the treatment of Irish… they were treated more poorly than blacks, chinamen etc….. it’s pretty wild.
Feminazis are toxic, damaged and ugly women with daddy issues who disguise their hatred of men and masculinity as a noble form of activism for 'equality'.
Modern day Jezebels rebelling against God and male authority.
No one should fall for their bullshit.
A great great grandfather was born on the boat from Dublin to NOLa here during the potato famine
I am irish. Where's my reparation?
They hate us cause they ain't us..
80% Irish. Can I have the gibs?
Add the French, Poles, any migrated families from the hellscape of Europe in the 1800's
And lots and lots of Germans.
Germans have been immigrating in significant numbers to the United States since the 1680s, when they settled in New York and Pennsylvania.2 By the mid-19th century, Germans were the predominant ethnic group in the United States, with some eight million people out of a population of 76 million.01 New York City had one the world’s largest German-speaking populations, trailing only Berlin and Vienna, with about a quarter of its 3.4 million people conversing auf Deutsch.
anomoly's a fag
Can you get past that for the message or is that too hard?
not Irish don't give a fuck. he's a fag.
Yet you graced this post with your presence.
We are all the more enlightened for it.
YEP. AND YOU STILL POSTED A FAGGOT
You sound fun at parties
I don't go to partiers thanks.
This guy is on a daily anti Trump tirade now because of "muh vaccine."
Happy St Patrick's Day! ☘️🇮🇪💚
I became an honorary Irishman by
out-drinking every Irishman I ever met!
Err I mean by supporting Bobby Sands and the secession of every square millimeter of Northern Ireland that votes to secede.
Welcome to our proud and glorious race :)
He left out the fact that the Irish were the overseers on plantations in America and collectively discriminated against non whites as a rite of passage. Read the book How the Irish Became White, before you respond.
