Senator Edward Kennedy. The IRA Supporter with a Knighthood.

“Protestants who could not accept a united Ireland should be given a decent opportunity to go back to Britain”. (1980)

“The British presence on the Island of Ireland is equivalent to our occupation of Vietnam. (1971)

“British insensitivity is the the cause of this (the Hunger Strikes) crisis.” (1981)

In 1978, he successfully pressured President Jimmy Carter’s administration not to allow the U.S. to sell arms to the Royal Ulster Constabulary – sanctions which effectively equated Britain’s Ulster police force with repressive dictatorial regimes in Africa and Asia.

Gerry Adams attended his funeral.

Who is this loather of Britain and the basic human right not to get blown up by terrorists?

Non other than Senator Edward Kennedy, knighted by the Queen on the orders of Gordon Brown who also attended the funeral. 

Kennedy was a pigmy, only enlarged politically by his illustrious surname. Nepotism of the worst kind saw him escape jail in the wake of the Chappaquiddick tragedy and Kennedy, against convention, challenged the sitting Democratic President Jimmy Carter fatally damaging the progressive agenda and handing the Oval Office to the Republicans for twelve years.

"If your name was simply Edward Moore instead of Edward Moore Kennedy,’ one Democratic rival for his Senate seat told him, ‘your candidacy would be a joke.’  A much better epitaph than the cringing praise from Mister Self Loathing in Chief, Gordon Brown whose presence at Kennedy’s funeral is a slap in the face to all the victims of Ulster’s Long War.
