The BBC Northern Ireland news website carries the following headline today:
If you don’t already know about the blinkered, biased opinion of Joe Biden of all things British, here are a few helpful hints about which I was reminded by a reader of ‘The Burning Bush’.
The late Robert Boyer of the Altoona Mirror wrote back in 1985 of Biden’s attempts to shield terrorists:
“The four men for whom the Senators (all Roman Catholics) seek safety here are charged abroad with planting bombs in public places, killing and taking hostages. The U.S. courts now protect them because their heinous acts were ‘political’, so they claim.
If Kerr and Dodd and Biden and their friends succeed, then we would have no legal recourse at all if, for instance, the killers of Robert Stethem, the U S sailor murdered in June by hijackers, were to seek sanctuary in a foreign country, claiming safety because Stethem was a member of the military service, and thus the killers’ crime was ‘political’.

Joe Biden’s anti-British Comments in Jerusalem – reported in the Daily Express, July 2022.
He said: “The background of my family is Irish American. And we have a long history not fundamentally unlike the Palestinian people, with Great Britain and their attitude toward Irish Catholics over the years for 400 years.”

Daily Mail article 3 February 2022.
“Has the Special Relationship been soured by Joe Biden’s English-hating mother? Amid a desperate need for unity against Russia, a new book reveals the loathing of the US President’s Irish forebears for this country, writes TOM LEONARD
A scriptwriter on the comedy drama series Veep, Pritchett had gone to see Biden, then U.S. vice president, to discuss his appearance in a special scene as a surprise for Barack Obama, a big fan of the show.”
Extract from the above article:
‘Noticing I was English, he changed the subject to how much his mother hated the English,’ she recalls in her autobiography, My Mess Is A Bit Of A Life. His parents were Irish and she had written several poems about her hatred of the English. He went off to find them and returned with hundreds of poems describing how God must smite the English and rain blood on our heads.’
The blundering, blathering old man of world politics, Joe Biden (his father was of English, French Huguenot ancestry) is nothing but a ‘self-glorifying son of Erin’ whose southern Irish Roman Catholic mother’s utterly unreasonable and groundless bigotry has been passed on to him in good measure.
This is the man the British (a Hindi of Indian descent) Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak, is inviting to visit Northern Ireland.
No Protestant worthy of that name will wish to ‘celebrate’ the anniversary of the Good Friday Agreement since it but a concocted political devious/package, meant to appease the IRA terrorists and see those jailed released with absolutely NOTHING for Unionists, as the shameful predicament in which the DUP, who bought into the essence of the deal, find them themselves and Ulster along with them today!
If Biden does arrive, no Unionist should be at any gathering at which he is present! For them to do so is like Ukrainians cheering and clapping Putin!
