Willie Frazer has long been regarded as a figure of fun; a loyalist clown blethering on about "ShinFayneIRA", IRA horsemeat, engaging in outrageous publicity stunts and that missing money.
Much can be written about Frazer's background and perhaps it is his undeniably tragic past (although questions remain about his family's involvement in the notorious Glenanne Gang) that has instilled in him a demonstrable hatred of all things "republican" or "nationalist" and a distorted view of anyone who opposes his warped world view.
In Frazerworld anyone who contradicts him is either a terrorist, a terrorist apologist or a terrorist sympathiser. Those who he includes in this imaginary cabal include the DUP, the UUP, Alliance, NI21 and of course us here at LAD.
For the record we believe all acts of terrorism and violence are wrong - regardless of the cause. There is no justification. There is no get out clause. Fuck the IRA. Fuck the UVF.
In recent weeks Frazer has really gone to town in his sectarian ramblings both as an individual "victims campaigner" (a term lazily used by local journalists) and as a member of the vile so-called Protestant Coalition.
This "Coalition" seems to consist of himself, Rub (nee Rab) McGee and Sam (So It Is) McCrory following the resignations of founding members BNP fund raiser Jim (Dodgy) Dowson and Bill (Umbrellas) Hill. There was another one but he's not a well man so just forget about him.
(For the record I the author am 'technically' a Protestant - albeit an atheist. I am not a member of any coalition of Protestants)
Frazer's (and the so-called Protestant Coalition's) most recent "victim" has been Catherine Seeley who has the audacity to be not only a TAIG but also a ShinFayneIRA Councillor. Oh the horror.
After a campaign orchestrated by Frazer/McGee & their so-called 'Protestant Coalition' Ms. Seeley left her job at the Boys Model despite support from her students.
Fortunately Catherine has been redeployed to another school but has so far remained silent on the intimidation orchestrated by Frazer, McKee and Co. although she did publicly thank pupils at the Boys Model for their support at Sinn Fein's recent Ard Fheis.
So far so horrendous.
Last night Willie and his entourage (including the execrable and terminally dim Rub McGee) decided to take a road trip to Mid Ulster.
Their target this time was Magherafelt District Council.
Well the bastarbs at Magherafelt District Council had the nerve - the fucking NERVE - to erect a plaque in memory of two Magherafelt Councillors murdered by loyalist terrorists.
Of course they were ShinFayneIRA councillors so that makes it okay in Frazerworld as by definition they were terrorists. And murderers.
Well actually no it doesn't.
Yeah sure both men were republicans and one was named (under parliamentary privilege) by that well known Christian Willie McCrea of being in the IRA, but unless I'm very much mistaken neither was ever convicted of anything (correct me if I'm wrong).
The big question is why people like Frazer are allowed to spread their gospel of hatred while the majority of decent people want to get on with their lives and forget the past. Why aren't the authorities taking legal action against these purveyors of sectarian hatred?
There are those who would say that having "terrorists in government" is wrong.
Frankly we would rather have former terrorists in government as opposed to them running around killing people and wrecking the fucking place. If they have bought into the idea of democracy rather than being murderous wankstains then we say "well done on catching up on the rest of humanity. We'll be watching."
Especially you Billy.
Embrace change Willie.
