What did these guys do?
Black and Tans are still pretty much alive in the Irish memory, so American tourists occasionally get a dirty look when they order a "Black and Tan" in the local pub. And don’t get me started with the "Irish Car Bomb"…
Winston Churchill brought these scumbags into Ireland
There are so many examples of governments hiring crazies to act as enforcers. So disgusting.
But remember! Let’s not confuse this with the need of government especially when we need government to regulate business! Without government we have polluted water ways, polluted air, no more wild life, child workers, terrible working conditions and more.
Its almost as if the people are held down by both big business AND government, and without collective action in the form of unions and political parties for the masses, we become slaves to corporate interests!
We need a party of socialist, environmentalist, unionists! Tax the uber wealthy corporate powers to pay for universal Healthcare. Force an end to fossils fuels. Move to a 4 day work week. End over seas wars as they only kill the common man but assure NATO dominence through power projection and economic means. Get money out of politics. End corporate socialism.
So there recently was this video from the Great War YouTube channel about the Irish war of independence, and I was informed, interested and kind of sad..
I kind of knew you guys got your independence in the interwar period but I never knew how confused the fighting was.
This is one part of history that I have always wanted to learn about, or at least get a decent understanding of, but never studied it. Is there an accurate documentary around it?
Is it verified it was the Black and Tans who did this? It was the " Auxilary Division" according to Wikipedia. Although the difference for the Irish might have been of the academic sort.
The result of taking PTSD sufferers straight from the tranches and sending them for law enforcement. For fuck’s sake, they destroyed an entire city!
