Varadkar defends decision to commemorate Tans and R.I.C
Our traitor "Taoiseach" Leo Varadkar has defended the decision to commemorate the now postponed Black and Tans and the Royal Irish Constabulary commemoration in Dublin, saying “all traditions” should be respected.
The government is facing rising opposition over a controversial service planned later this month at Dublin Castle.
A number of mayors have said they will not attend the event including Waterford mayor John Pratt and mayor for Galway Mike Cubbard.
Mr Pratt said on Tuesday morning that the “appetite does not exist for representation at this event”.
Mr Varadkar lied through his teeth claiming that the commemoration is “not a celebration”.
“It’s about remembering our history, not condoning what happened,” he said.
“We will also remember the terrible burning of Cork, Balbriggan, partition and the atrocities of the Civil War.
“We should respect all traditions on our island and be mature enough as a State to acknowledge all aspects of our past.”
His comments comes as Kevin “Boxer” Moran, the Minister of State responsible for Dublin Castle, said the event should be postponed.
Minister for Justice Charlie Flanagan and Garda Commissioner Drew Harris will be among those attending the event.
