H/t to Ol’ Remus for this link to an (intentionally?) omitted piece of British colonial history.

And do you really think the elites have a different plan in mind for those plebes kept alive after the global economy’s collapse?

Based on what, exactly?

  1. The Irish slaves were hardly the first European slaves. The entirety of Europe, plus the muslim world for almost a thousand years held millions of slaves of any color/race/creed. French royalty had slaves in their stables during the so-called enlightenment! Anyone who was considered the oposition was enslaved. People just out shopping for food were enslaved. Certainly any ship on the high seas that was incapable of defending itself risked capture and enslavement of the crew. There were tens of thousands in each city through nothern Africa from Casablanca to Tunis to Algiers to Cairo. Heck, even today there are millions of people in slavery, and do you ever hear a word about them? Almost never.

  6. I think the point is that the regime, the global order intends to enslave us all. What has happened in the past, is happening again if they get their way.

    Let’s not give them their way………..

  7. My paternal grandmother was in “indentured servant”, a nice phrase for slave. She arrived in America from Ireland in the very early years of the 20th Century, never took a penny in charity and there was no welfare state at that time. She raised 4 children on her own after her husband died. She did it by working 3 jobs. Interesting that none of her childre remained mired in poverty. They were motivated to succeed and did so without any government hand-outs.

  8. Just a little ‘off topic’, found @ Resistor’s…

    Makes one a bit less uncertain about what’s going on.

  9. Kind of puts the Irish units of the Union Army during the American Civil War in a new light does it not?
