Celtic Diary Wednesday March 28: Concentrating On The Real Issues

School’s are out just now, and it appears things have changed a little since my day.  In order to keep their little tykes amused, back then at least, teachers would suggest little projects to while away the hours in those days of three tv channels and no internet.

Sure, we’d play football until it went dark, but it was difficult to get a good game going when everyone wore the same strip…

These days, children have all sorts of options when it comes to amusement, and one of them, or a group of them, presumably feeling deeply unloved and neglected,has sent out a cry for attention

Some people are outraged, others are claiming its part of an anti catholic surge amongst the right wing in Scotland, and the cheeky little scamp who put it together will have found another way to amuse himself in front of his computer that won’t need him to clear his browser history in case his mother sees it.

Frankly, looking at the enthusiastic use of capital letters and the lack of punctuation, its probably not worth bothering with.

I’ve met a few people who consider it witty to shout “100 points ” if you run over an Asian, doubled if they have kids and trebled if there’s a pushchair involved.

As you can imagine, these people soon drop off one’s radar and find their level in life’s tropical fish tank somewhere down with the other bottom feeders, and as a result have to blame someone for that, as of course its not their fault, as they are white, protestant and have lived here all their life.

As they become fewer, they need to make more noise or else they will be ignored, and thats what we have in that leaflet.

A wee shout to make them feel all grown up and important.

Its really not worth reacting to, certainly not worth getting all excited about because by May 1 they’ll al be back at school and studying hard for their digging holes in the road and filling them in again diplomas.

As the noise from the dark side gets louder, our reaction should become less, and starve them of the oxygen of publicity. Its what they crave, and just as an addict should be refused heroin, or an alcoholic refused whisky, they should be refused attention.

They might be waving their arms about, but they’re not going to hit anything.

 

There are several other things that need our attention.

Like who will replace Scott Brown as Celtic midfield enforcer, after Stuart Armstrong was caught on camera shouting “not the hair, not the hair ”

Or organising this, as suggested by Tam Sellick on twitter..

Rangers fans are planning to wear orange at the semi-final. I think it’s a great idea. If Celtic fans in the north stand round to east stand F7 wear green and G1 round to the main stand divide wear white we will create a massive tricolour round Hampden.

 

There are plenty of other things that demand our attention, such as allegations that former Rangers players each received one thousand pounds to play in the legneds game at the weekend, which received so much press attention.

I’m sure their top men are on that particular story, as they would not wish to be associated with it if the accounts show it was all a waste of time…

Hah. Accounts, what am i talking about. As if they’ll ever publish anything that has numbers in it.

Like this, from Barcabhoy, which due to UEFA rules, means that “rangers ” should not have been given a UEFA licence last year, which in fairness does mean they are following yet another tradition that made the original club so lovable.

RALPH,

I saw that tweet last night. Showed it to one of my colleagues down here. Astonished doesn’t quite cover his reaction.

What’s even worse,have you read the comments that followed it?

Johnny r

24 hours on and I’m still narked about @cunneen92 the twitter account of the guy who ‘writes’ for Paddy Power and weighed in with his agenda laden bullshit about Scott Brown’s testimonial.. Paddy Power will have a vetting system on social media and they let his puerile comment out into the public domain. Stop betting with them. All of us. They don’t deserve your dollar.

Morto

Even better, get everyone you know to sign up for a Paddy Power account and then all of us delete them at kick off time on the day of Broonie’s testimonial.
That should get the message across.

I presume you were being sarcastic when you wrote ‘an e-mail to Celtic might get the ball rolling’.

Ok Monti

Can we naw make May 1st ” HUG A HUN DAY “. where they all get a great big bear hug, preferably administered to them by one of the Black, Grizzly or Polar family… KTF..

In that letter, the muppet that composed it stated that Protestantism is a religion – wrong!!..

Christianity is a religion – Protestantism is a section of that religion, hence it is sectarian.

Perhaps if our politicians and our police learned to correctly differentiate, then this idiot, and his cohorts, will be brought to book for breaching the laws governing sectarianism.

Brencelt

Good point Steven. But it’ll be lost on the hunnish hordes. They still think rangers exist

Wisnae me

If “rangers” were ineligible last season why aren’t Hearts kicking up a fuss, they lost out European revenue, and would probably have gotten further, and thus increased the co-efficient, slightly.

Monti

Because they will have been got at, threatened and intimidated to shut the fuck up.
Or the bombs & bullets will arrive in the post….
Someone should ask Regan what his specific threats were.

Rebus67

Ralph, I disagree re the sectarian email. If this has not been reported to the police, it needs to be. This is pure hate and is the result of some foul background on the part of the auther. It is the result of a lack of action to quell sectarian singing, marching and other forms of bigotry. The authorities have to start somewhere. This is a clear cut case that has no ambiguity about it. It is clearly an incitement towards violence based on hate. It is a hate crime……pure and simple. If there is any doubt, simply substitute ‘protestant’… Read more »

Weered

Rebus… It is but a recent variation in all of the innumerable anti Catholic bigotry shown by a sizeable number of their fellow thinkers… The only surprising thing that there is no mention of a points score for killing a “Fenian”…which is something they are well versed in also…

I feel sorry for the author and others within that cohort who are blinded by a notion of ascendency by any means.

They have long since been lost to decent society
All that being said…
Fuck them all nevertheless and a curse on all their houses !

Monti

Weered,
As you know at first hand, you have to stand up to these cunts, i’ve done it all my life, at work, in pubs or out in the street.
Catholic, Celtic & proud of it….and i let them fucking know it!
Did it make me unpopular with some? Yes
Did it make things more difficult for me? yes.
Did i give two fucks? No.
Do i give two fucks now? No.
Was it fun? Fuck yes.

Rebus, on two occasions i’ve contacted anti sectarian groups over the singing of the “Billy Boys” at the EBTarena and made the point you did about the furore there would be if you inserted , Jewish, Asian or Black rather than Fenian. Guess what the response was? Again, we’re all Jock Tamson’s Bairns aren’t we?

ROB O'KEEFFE

Know your place you Fenian bass! How many points do I get for this?

rebus67

Noel, Depressing! The problems are deep rooted. I recall at school playing for the football team, if we were drawn against a team from a Catholic school, it was a win at any and all costs.Some of the motivation was fuelled by hate. It just took a few comments from some in the team to produce group think and the whole team went out to kill the other lot. I have to say that our opponents had the same desire! We played Dumbarton St Pats once and we were very motivated to get at them. As it happened St Pats… Read more »

Anti catholicism in the country A Labour Member of the Scottish Parliament has called on Holyrood to recognise the growing problem of anti-Catholicism in Scotland. It follows a government report which suggests that Catholics are the victims of 57 per cent of all religiously aggravated offences reported in the country. Elaine Smith MSP raised the subject in the Scottish Parliament last week, following an incident in which a church near Glasgow was vandalised and the Blessed Sacrament desecrated. Smith noted that not only are Catholics now the victims of more hate crime than all other religious groups in Scotland combined,… Read more »

Thought the Celts did relatively okay last night against a poor team. Forrest was not as good as he could be but played out of position and service was terrible. A new era dawns(again) for Ebt Mc Leish.
