Social Democracy and the genocide of catholics

category national | rights, freedoms and repression | news report author Tuesday May 03, 2016 19:17author by Mack MacThomais Report this post to the editors

How the Irish State broke of diplomatic relations with social democratic states

Recenly the emergence of a "new party" in Ireland made headlines, however social democracy is not new whatsoever. The legacy of this idealogy has left millions dead across the world however this article will focus on its impact in Mexico and how the Irish government were the only government in the world at the time to break off diplomatic relations with Mexico and its social democracy policies.

The Dept foreign affairs has an intetesting document in its archives which document the stance our fledgling state took during the Calles regime in Mexico and the subsequent Cristero war or Cristiada as it was also known in response 1926-1929.

Plutarco Elias Calles studied social democracy in Europe before he was inaugurated president of Mexico and sought to enforce this political regime on the catholics of Mexico. It resulted in the deaths of 250,000 people when the catholic population resistance movement the Cristetos finally fought back.

Not surprisingly just as the Cristeros started to defeat Calles ,US President Woodrow Wilson decided to broker a peace deal. His aide de camp John Lind is on record as celebrating the murder of catholics in Mexico before the catholic Cristeros gained the upper hand.

Ireland was the only country in the world to break off diplomatic relations with Mexico at the time according to the Dept Foreign Affairs archives published on line. The founders of our state clearly seen their was no place for social democracy in civilised society and made a unique stand internationally against this capitalist regime at the time.

So how on earth could a political party such as this ever be considered by the current registrar of political parties.? Indeed it creates a constitutional crisis regarding the Right to Association articles in Bunreacht na HEireann. Would the registrar accept the nomination of a Cristero styled political wing to defend our Atlantic trading routes for instance??

You may ask reader what old colonial powers of Spain have to do with modern Ireland. Irish citizens for instance have the same rights as Spaniards under the current monarch of the House of Bourbon in Spain. Therefore the Schenegen Agreement does not apply to all groups in Ireland as these concesions were gained following Napoleans defeat in Spain. The famous case in Cadiz where the Irish community petition the Supreme council in Madrid and won demonstrates that catholics can move quite freely beyond the so called common travel area and are not restricted under Schenegen as the current rules would lead us to believe.

So Spain and the Spanish speaking world are important to our constitution and people. We never gave away these rights as equal status to Spaniards they are still recognised in Spain under the House of Bourbon and we can enjoy freedoom of movement and trade contrary to what Schenegen would have us believe. It was also clearly important during the years the Irish constitution was being drafted when we cut links with the Calles regime to oppose facism in that country and the attempt by the US anti catholic sentiments of the time which even seen an ancient Franciscan church adapted to a masonic temple by such a greenback led president of Mexico.

Should we regard this cultural levelling and denial of our rights and trade routes by these failed idealogies? So petition your representative s to abolish social democracy and its party in Ireland as the founders of the state did. And practice your rights under Schenegen and the ruling of the Cadiz case where we have the same rights as Spaniards and Schenegen does not apply to all of us.

As Mary Robinson once said. "A civil right must be fought for, and when gained we must fight even harder to keep them!"

Fight for your trading rights beyond Schenegen.
