“They talk about the luck of the Irish. Can someone tell me what the hell is lucky about being Irish? They come to this country in droves, right. There’s signs that say ‘Irish need not apply.’”
I love that he brought this up. This is something very close to my heart (and a huge part of my thesis). I feel like everyone forgets it.
The Irish did not have a happy time when they got here. Being Irish was not a good thing. It really bothers me that people run around on St. Patrick’s day pretending to be Irish and everything. It pisses me off because I bet that half of their ancestors were the ones throwing rocks at the Irish as they came off the boat while screaming “go back home.”
And it really effing pisses me off that history books don’t talk about this and that no one is educated about it in school.
Bob also touched on that and said how on St. Patrick’s Day everyone becomes Irish and claims to trace their ancestry back.
But then Bob goes onto say some stuff that’s pretty stupid. But I still appreciate what he brought up.
And thank you Kimberly Guilfoyle for saying that “the Irish have contributed a lot to this country. They are hardworking, good people.”
Because we are.
You can be a real stupid idiot with your political views, but I love love love you so.
He said this on the Five today (they were talking about how St. Patrick was actually born in Britain and how FNC has some Brits and Scots and someone said they’re Brits) and Bob says “No no no, we have Scots. The Brits have stolen their country.”
I hear a choir of Angels singing.
I’m an Anglophile and all. But they are pretty much holding Scotland and N. Ireland hostage. Scotland even talks about seceding and becoming independent every few years.
