However Enda Kenny, pictured above with Scully, has not too long ago had his own problems regarding race relations. In 2002 he told a group of journalists a joke with the word "Nigger" in the punchline. According to The Guardian
Despite a member of Ireland's coalition Labour Party making a police complaint about Scully under Ireland's incitement to hatred legislation, it still behooves the Labour Party to further distance themselves from the Fine Gael party by abandoning their coalition with the lead party in government.
For those of you who don't know their history; Fine Gael is the successor party of Cumann na nGaedheal and was founded on 8 September 1933 following the merger of its parent party Cumann na nGaedheal with the National Centre Party and the National Guard, a.k.a " The Blueshirts". These are the seeds of today's racist and lead party of Irish governance.
The Blue Shirts were led originally by the Hitler and Mussolini loving Eoin O'Duffy frorm 1933-4. O'Duffy later led his Blue Shirts to fight with General Franco with support from Adolf Hitler in the Spanish Civil War 1936-39.
It must be noted that despite modern Fine Gael's attempts to distance themselves from the Blue Shirts, racist attitudes abide in their ranks and indeed in the words and actions of their leader: our Taoiseach Enda Kenny.
It must be noted that Fine Gael's longest serving TD (M.P) the late Oliver J Flnagan is globally notorious for his entrenched anti-Semitic views. Though his most famous outburst came in 1943, it was not long (1954) before he was wooed by and welcomed into the Fine Gael ranks becoming their longest ever continuously serving T.D.. Flanagan never changed his political views. His son Charles Flanagan is a currnet Fine Gaael TD.
In his father's 1943 maiden speech in the Dail (Ireland's parliament) O J Flanagan said:
How is it that we do not see any of these [Emergency Powers] Acts directed against the Jews, who crucified Our Saviour nineteen hundred years ago, and who are crucifying us every day in the week? How is it that we do not see them directed against the Masonic Order? How is it that the I.R.A. is considered an illegal organisation while the Masonic Order is not considered an illegal organisation? [...] There is one thing that Germany did, and that was to rout the Jews out of their country. Until we rout the Jews out of this country it does not matter a hair's breadth what orders you make. Where the bees are there is the honey, and where the Jews are there is the money. http://historical-debates.oireachtas.ie/D/0091/D.0091.194307090010.html
Whereas Fine Gael have attempted to claim to no longer hold such reprehensible views today's events and Kenny's recent racist outburst speak volumes. The legacy of Eoin O'Duffy, the Blue Shirts and Oliver J. Flanagen are alive and kicking especially today. Yet remarkably, Enda Kenny is the political leader of the Irish Nation because of the support afforded to Fine Gael by the supposed champions of the working class and the working people, the "socialist" Labour Party who are under the leadership of former Marxist and former Offical Sinn Fein member, Eamon Gilmore.
It is time for the Irish Labour Party to stand by their alleged principles and leave government or be regarded as the standard bearers a racist elite.
