a) dragging a mother-of-ten kicking and screaming from her home in front of her kids, brutally interrogating her, shooting her in the back of the head and then burying her in an unmarked grave?
b) using the “N” word in a tweet?
Well the answer if you’re an enlightened leftist is b) obviously. We know this from a cracking article in today’s Guardian by Gary Younge called Racism Is A System Of Oppression, Not A Series Of Bloopers. Younge, being black, has taken on himself to adjudicate on what he calls an “off-colour” tweet by the murderous ex-terrorist Gerry Adams, which made use of the “N” word.
Though he has consistently denied it, it is an open secret that Gerry Adams – now president of Sinn Fein – was a senior commander of the IRA during the Troubles in Ireland and according to several former IRA members has much blood on his hands. There are photographs of him acting as pallbearer at IRA funerals; he was described by former IRA commander Brendan Hughes as a “major, major player in the war”; and among his many alleged victims is Jean McConville, the mother murdered in 1972 – according to at least two witnesses on Adams’s orders – because she was mistakenly believed to be a collaborator.
You might think that, given a track record like that, the odd use of an offensive racial epithet on social media was the least of Adams’s image problems.
