Pseud's corner...please welcome another Nationalist bigot...

Well, folks, just as I said. Right on cue, we have yet another fine example of the campaign bigotry of the "Yes" campaign in the recent Scottish Referendum.

Step forward a self-deluder who disguises himself under the honourable title of Alasdair Mac Colla.

The real Alasdair Mac Colla - as opposed to the half-witted pseud who calls himself by that sobriquet on the internet - was a Scottish Gael who lived around 1610–1647 (Alasdair Mac Colla Chiotaich Mac Domhnuill meaning “son of the left-handed Coll MacDonald” and he was often wrongly nicknamed “Colkitto” – left-handed Coll - for short).


Alasdair MacColla "Colkitto" - Alasdair Mac Colla Chiotaich Mac Domhnuill - c.1610–1647
 

He was, like all his clan, Catholic and fought in the wars of the Three Kingdoms, siding – PLEASE NOTE – with the Royalists and Irish Monarchist Confederates. Got that, Mr Internet Pseud? No republican nationalist, he was, in fact, a CATHOLIC MONARCHIST.

He and his clan strongly opposed the Presbyterian Campbells, the turncoat highland Clan who fought for the imposition of the national Covenant and the fanatical Solemn League and Covenant and sought to oust King Charles I, the true Stewart King of the Three Kingdoms.

Mac Colla opposed the settlement of Ulster by Scottish Covenanter planters. He led an Irish force to cross over to Scotland to support James Graham, the 1st Marquess of Montrose, commander of the Royalist army in Scotland and the principal adherent of King Charles I. Montrose conferred Knighthood upon Mac Colla in the name of King Charles I.

So - he was NOT a republican or a nationalist.

Alasdair Mac Colla was a MONARCHIST who supported the Stewart King Charles I (a Protestant and Anglican) and fought for the survival of the Three Kingdoms – England, Scotland and Ireland – all under the rule of the Stewart dynasty.

It was Oliver Cromwell and his band of murderous heretics who were the republicans, basing themselves upon the Calvinist republic of Geneva. They not only murdered their lawful sovereign, King Charles I, but, in typical republican heretical fashion, also murdered Mac Colla after he had been taken prisoner at Knockanauss.



The odious John Calvin, founder of the grim creed of Calvinism, and inspiration of much modern, secular, fanatical, bigoted, racist, nationalist republicanism


Calvin and Cromwell are the true fathers of republican murderers everywhere, including the IRA.

So - the bigot calling himself Mac Colla has wrongly named himself. We shall therefore call him Mr Pseud.

Pseud rants and raves as follows:

"You speak as a nationalist not as a Catholic. Check the actual stats, a majority of Catholics voted yes. Which is quite correct since voting yes was the correct position for traditionalist Catholics (Nostra nacio) Do you have any proof if racist facists in the yes camp. Certainly, the no loyalist unionist anti catholics burned our most sacred and holy cross of st andrew on the night of the result in George square Glasgow. Its nit just Scotland, the flemish movement is more Catholic than secular Belgium. As is the Tyrolian movement. The Quebec independence movement is more Catholic. Same with the Bretons in France. You'd not understand that being an American?"

No, Pseud. I speak as a Catholic who opposes your narrow, bigoted, fanatical, swivel-eyed nationalism.

No, Pseud. I speak as a Catholic Scot, descended from a very long line of Scots, including - directly - Sir William Wallace and King Robert the Bruce - and I am not an American. Never been American. Don't want to be American. And in case you hadn't notice, Mr Pseud, America is a republic and I am a Monarchist (like the real Mac Colla).

Are you getting it, now, Pseud?

And, no, Pseud. There is no "Nostra nacio" (which is neither Italian nor Latin) and no document or concept exists in the Catholic Church under that heading. You are simply making it up, Pseud.

And no, Pseud. The Flemish nationalist movement in Belgium is not largely Catholic but largely secularist, republican, anti-Catholic and anti-Monarchist. I know this. I visit regularly.

And no, Pseud. The tiny remnant Tyrolean nationalist movement in South Tyrol is no longer chiefly Catholic but largely secularist. I know this. I visit regularly. True Tyroleans are Habsburg loyalists, not separatist, nationalist fanatics.

And no, Pseud. The FLQ movement of Quebec are a largely Marxist organisation now and are openly anti-Catholic. And before the 1960s, the Catholic Canadians were fervently pro-British Empire because they recognised the British Empire as having saved them in the war of 1812 from the  invading American revolutionaries and in the 1860s from the doomed Fenian invasion of Canada from America.

You really are deeply ignorant, Mr Pseud.

As for the legions of racists and Fascists in the "Yes" camp, I gave you some evidence of that in my last post. Did you forget your glasses, Pseud?



Another bigoted nationalist fanatic...


Pseud is a liar. There are no stats showing that a majority of Catholics voted "yes" in the Scottish referendum. How could there be since the ballot was secret?

According to sociologist Dr Michael Rosie, a member of the Scottish Government's anti-­sectarianism expert group, rather than the more recent Social Attitudes survey revealing a shift in the "Catholic vote", it showed its near disappearance.

In the 1999 Social Attitudes survey, 21% of Church of Scotland identifiers backed independence, compared to 34% of Catholics, and 31% of those of no religion. By 2012, 30% of Catholics supported independence, compared to 26% among those of no religion, and 17% among Church of Scotland ­identifiers.

Clearly all were less keen on independence and 30% of Catholics is nothing like a majority of Catholics, even assuming that the vote was the same or that we are not talking about believing, church-going Catholics rather than those who merely identify as such for cultural reasons.

Got that, Pseud?

Dr Rosie said attitudes towards independence were better explained "by experiences of secularisation rather than through hackneyed religious truisms".

Dr Rosie further said: "Claims that Catholics are 'more likely' than others to support independence are rather superficial. When we factor in things like gender, class and age, the religious difference pretty much disappears altogether. This does not represent a shift in 'the Catholic vote'. It shows its near disappearance. Scotland's Catholics are not reducible to just their Catholicism, or for many their Irish heritage. They have many potential identities and whatever their Catholicism meant politically in the past, it has far less relevance today".

Got that, Pseud?

Labour MSP Siobhan McMahon added: "I'm surprised that any academic looks at the Catholic population as a homogenous group. It's about individuals and I doubt very much anyone will be voting along religious lines."

Got that, Pseud?

But Pseud then goes on to demonstrate his total ignorance of the facts in his next asinine posts:

"Croats and Poles supported Scottish self determination. Again check the stats. No interest in the awful Stuarts. Never mentioned them. Fools, wasters, mercenaries. Shame on you for commiting such sins by telling such lies about the Scottish Independence movement. We look to Michael Collins in Ireland not The Stuarts. The Irish republicans were sincere and devout Catholics while you sir are an Anglican quisling."

No, Pseud. Croats and Poles took little or no interest in the referendum. You are just lying again.

Historically the Croats and the Poles certainly DID support the Stewarts, and the Bonnie Prince in particular, which is unsurprising since his mother, Princess Maria-Clementina of the House of Sobieski, was a Pole herself.


Princess Maria-Clementina of the Polish Royal House of Sobieski, following her marriage to King James III and VIII, true and de jure Queen of the Three Kingdoms of England, Scotland and Ireland and mother of Prince Charles Edward Stewart, Bonnie Prince Charlie


Shame on you, Pseud. You clearly have no regard for truth.

But then - at last, - out comes the real truth!

He looks to Michael Collins in Ireland, not the Stewarts! Well, of course he does! Because Mr Pseud is the true Quisling - a true nationalist Fascist.

As any fool knows, the Irish republicans were anti-Catholic revolutionaries, opposed by every single Catholic bishop in Ireland, excommunicated by the Irish Church and, in January 1875, by Blessed Pope Pius IX. They were a gang of terrorist thugs who thought nothing of murdering good Irish Catholics as they came out of mass or even when they were in the confessional.

A bigger parcel of cut-throats, murderers, scoundrels, terrorists and hell-bound devils could hardly be imagined than Michael Collin's murderous "Squad".


Michael Collins, ex-communicated murderous republican thug and bigoted fanatic
who thought nothing of murdering his fellow countrymen in cold blood


Michael Collins was a marked and open enemy of the Catholic Church, a secularist, a revolutionary, a fornicator and a rebel who brutally and ruthlessly murdered his countrymen in cold blood for the sake of a bogus, fanatical, contemptible, racist and bigoted nationalism.

And Mr Pseud supports him! There you have it, folks! Need I say more?

I will bet anyone a penny to a pound that this odious twerp, Mr Pseud, is, himself, not of Scottish blood, originally, but is, in fact, of Irish extraction and has, from his childhood, imbibed the green poison of anti-Catholic Irish revolutionary, republican nationalism and now, like so many of his ilk, transfers his poisonous hatred to Scotland!

And THAT is almost certainly why he has no love for the Stewarts. He is probably not of Scottish ancestry, but almost certainly of emigrant Irish ancestry, although perhaps born and brought up in Scotland, as so many are in the "Yes" voting regions of Glasgow and Lanarkshire, the area of the UK with the lowest level of practice of the Catholic religion among those registered as Catholics.

And, by the way, Mr ignorant Pseud: Vidkun Quisling was a Norwegian Nazi and whatever you may say about Anglicans in Britain, the vast majority of them fought against Hitler, the Nazis and people like Quisling. So calling anyone an "Anglican Quisling" is a bit like calling them a square circle.

On the other hand, Sinn Fein, the IRA and the Irish republicans were enthusiastic supporters of Hitler and the Nazis.

The father of Gerry Adams even set lights on the surrounding hills to guide the Nazi bombers in to bomb his own city of Belfast. Yes, true fact!

And, as everyone knows, Eamonn de Valera made a point of going to the German Embassy to sign the condolence book upon learning of Hitler's suicide.


Gerry Adams, Sr., IRA gunman, republican nationalist fanatic, and father of Sinn Fein President, Gerry Adams, Jr., he himself helped guide in by light the Nazi bombers to bomb his own city of Belfast. Accused by his own family of being an abuser, his other son, Liam Adams was found guilty of 10 counts of rape and sexual abuse. Adams Sr. was a Belfast IRA gunman in the 1940s against Britain when Europe was at war with Hitler. He was captured during an IRA operation in 1942 when he shot an RUC police officer in the foot. He was sentenced to eight years in prison and served five. He was interned in 1971 along with his son, Gerry.


But - hey! - don't let anything like facts get in the way of your racist fantasy, will you, Mr Pseud!

And Pseud puts the final touches to his ranting tirade of ignorance in his last post:

"Presbyterianism was, is and always will be unionist. Check the voting stats and learn our history. You are supporting a Protestant state which treats Catholics badly."

No, Pseud. Presbyterianism has frequently been anti-Unionist, not least at the time of Mac Colla, when many Presbyterians opposed both King Charles I and Cromwell and wanted a Presbyterian Scotland, without King Charles I and without Westminster rule by Cromwell and his republican fanatics.

Furthermore, there were many Presbyterians among the Jacobites who sought for the return of the ancient Constitution of the Three Kingdoms, just like the hero of whom you clearly know so little, Alasdair Mac Colla!

In Clan Cameron, for example, Donald Cameron of Lochiel ensured that he had 3 chaplains - one Presbyterian, one Episcopalian and one, his own brother, Fr Alexander Cameron SJ, a Catholic and a Jesuit who later died of neglect, a prisoner in the prison hulks on the Thames. The Jacobite clans were genuinely ecumenical, unlike the bigots and fanatics of nationalism.


"The Gentle Lochiel"
Donald Cameron of Locheil, 19th Chief of Clan Cameron, and one of the best of the Jacobite clan leaders.
It is notable that one of his acts whilst in charge of Edinburgh was to order that there be no reprisals against the Whigs for their opposition to the Prince. He had previously given orders to care for the prisoners after the Battle of Prestonpans, and later he would ensure that Glasgow did not suffer any reprisals for its loyalty to George II. Such acts contributed to his reputation for humanity; he became known to both friend and foe, alike, as the "Gentle Lochiel".


But Pseud doesn't care about the Camerons because he doesn't care about the ancient Scottish race. He only cares about fanaticism and bigotry of the kind exhibited by his Irish republican, revolutionary and murdering hero, Michael Collins.

Pseud claims to be a Catholic. Catholic he clearly ain't. The sad truth of it is that he is a secularist, nationalist, fanatic and an anti-English racist bigot, dishonestly masquerading as a Scottish Catholic which is deeply ironic given that he is almost certainly not even a Scot by blood. Just a drifter with a grudging hatred against humanity and his fellow man.

Let us pray for his conversion from racist bigotry and fanaticism to the true and gentle paths of orthodox Roman Catholicism.

At present he is a million miles away from it, God help him.

7 October - Our Lady of the Holy Rosary and the Battle of Lepanto

The battle of Lepanto, 7 October 1571


On 7 October 1571, Don John of Austria, son of the Emperor Charles V, commanding the navies of the Pope and the Emperor, together with the navies of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta and of Spain and Venice, defeated a much larger Muslim Turkish navy off the coast of Greece at a place now called Naupactos.

To the men of his day this place was called by its Roman name:

Lepanto

How did this extraordinary victory come about?

The answer is simple enough. it was obtained - yet again - by the most powerful weapon known to men: the holy Dominican Rosary chaplet of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Prior to this, one of the greatest naval battles of Roman Christendom, the Pope, St Pius V, himself a Dominican friar, ordered the praying of the Holy Rosary throughout the length and breadth of Christendom, just as was later to be done before the Battle of Vienna in 1683.

As a result the feast of our Lady of Victory (later our Lady of the Rosary) was instituted by the popes for an everlasting memory.

Let us hear what Abbot Prosper Gueranger OSB of Solesmes says of that great battle and feast in his great work, The Liturgical Year (the book read to St Therese of Lisieux when she was a child):

"Soliman II, the greatest of the Sultans, taking advantage of the confusion caused in the West by Luther, had filled the 16th century with terror by his exploits. He left to his son, Selim II, the prospect of being able at length to carry out the ambition of his race: to subjugate Rome and Vienna, the Pope and the Emperor, to the power of the crescent.

The Turkish fleet had already mastered the greater part of the Mediterannean, and was threatening Italy, when, on 7 October 1571, it came into action, in the Gulf of Lepanto, against the pontifical galleys supported by the fleets of Spain and Venice.

It was Sunday; throughout the world the confraternities of the Rosary were engaged in their work of intercession. Supernaturally enlightened, St Pius V watched from the Vatican the battle undertaken by the leader he had chosen, Don John of Austria, against the 300 vessels of Islam.


Don John of Austria

 
The illustrious Pontiff, whose life's work was now completed, did not survive to celebrate the anniversary of the triumph; but he perpetuated the memory of it by an annual commemoration of our Lady of Victory.

His successor, Gregory XIII, altered the title to our Lady of the Rosary, and appointed the first Sunday of October for the new feast [now celebrated on 7 October, the actual day of the battle - ed], authorising its celebration in those churches which possessed an altar under that invocation.

A century and a half later, this limited concession was made general. As [now Venerable]Innocent XI, in memory of the deliverance of Vienna by King Jan Sobieski, had extended the feast of the most Holy Name of Mary to the whole Church, so, in 1716, Clement XI inscribed the feast of the Rosary on the universal calendar, in gratitude for the victory gained by Prince Eugene of Savoy [commander-in-chief of the Imperial forces] at Peterwardein, on 5 August, under the auspices of our Lady of the snow. This victory was followed by the raising of the siege of Corfu, and completed a year later by the taking of Belgrade."

After Vienna, Peterwardein and Belgrade, the Muslim Turks were finally routed and never again troubled Roman Christendom.

Such was - and is - the extraordinary power of the Holy Rosary of St Dominic.

Beads of Paternosters and Aves have been said from very early times and were commonly said by the knights and sergeants of the Military religious Orders when in battle and on campaign, when they could not say their Office.

St Dominic formalised the current Dominican Rosary prior to the Battle of Muret in 1213 (that battle was again won on 12 September - the day after the mysterious 9/11) when he prayed for Count Simon de Montfort and his 700 knights as they sallied forth against a huge army of 50,000 Albigensians - rather like Theoden of Rohan against the massive army of Saruman and Isengard in The Lord of the Rings.

Like Theoden, de Montfort and his knights routed the Albigensians by charging straight into their midst. They gained the Albigensian headquarters and when their leader, the heretic King Peter of Aragon, was slain, the Albigensians fled.

Nevertheless, Count Simon wept over the corpse of King Peter whom he had known and admired as a soldier and whom he had hoped could be spared, powerful heretic and enemy though he was.

Thus the day was won and the tiny Catholic army triumphed over the huge heretic army. This, again, was another great victory obtained by the all-powerful Rosary of our Lady.

Small wonder, then, that our Lady has so often appeared and asked her children to pray the Holy Rosary for victory and peace, as she did to St Bernarde of Lourdes (St Bernadette) and later to the little shepherds at Fatima in 1917 during the Great War.

When we face fearful odds in the cause of right we must turn to our Lady and to her powerful weapon - the sword of the spirit - the chaplet of the Holy Rosary.


 


Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us!
St Dominic, pray for us!
St Pius V, pray for us!
Ven Innocent XI, pray for us!

Bishop Kieran Conry - another prelate resigns...

The distinctly irreverent Kieran Conry, over-promoted ex-Bishop of Arundel and Brighton, and an excessively influential figure in the Catholic Bishops' Conference of England and Wales, has admitted being "unfaithful" to his vows as a priest and resigned.

Here’s his statement, to be read out at Masses in his diocese:

"I am sorry to confess that, going back some years, I have been unfaithful to my promises as a Catholic priest. I would like to reassure you that my actions were not illegal and did not involve minors.

As a result, however, I have decided to offer my resignation as bishop with immediate effect and will now take some time to consider my future.

I want to apologise first of all to the individuals hurt by my actions and then to all of those inside and outside the diocese who will be shocked, hurt and saddened to hear this. I am sorry for the shame that I have brought on the diocese and the Church and I ask for your prayers and forgiveness."

Not illegal and did not involve minors? What? Surely we can do better than that?

Actually Kieran Conry's biggest problem was his heterodox teaching. He was constantly traducing the Church's solemn and sacred teaching.

Time to wake up. Save the Church. Save the Catholic people. From now on, give us good men. Worthy men. Holy men.

When, oh when, is Rome going to give us faithful bishops?

The future of the Church in Britain many depend upon it.

In a very close match, the C of E just wins the cricket match against the touring Vatican side by a narrow whisker...

It was a very exciting, nail-biting finish and a dramatic conclusion to the Vatican cricket team's first ever international cricket tour and match against the Church of England!

In a very close match, the Vatican team scored 106 runs in 20 overs, dragging its feet a little in the middle range of overs when, this being a 20/20 match, striking out was what was needed.
 
However, once the Vatican side went in to bowl they did so very tellingly and kept the home side down to only a few runs in the first several overs.
 
The home team rallied towards the last few overs and soon began to bring the game in to a very exciting and close finish.
 
The Vatican side let through a few extras - wides and no balls - to give the home team an advantage that was crucial.
 
Then, in the very last over, with only 3 runs needed, the Church of England batsman hit an impressive 4 to win the day.
 
The match was a huge success, with probably more Anglican and Catholic bishops together than one sees even at official ecumenical gatherings!
 
The match was followed by a gala dinner in the Kent County Cricket Club's pavilion with addresses from the captains and from the Archbishop of Canterbury and all proceeds went to the Global Freedom Network which campaigns against people-trafficking and modern slavery.





 
Here's a report from the Guardian newspaper

Vatican and Church of England cricket match

And the Canterbury Times:

Anglicans win first inter-faith cricket match

The whole concept was the brain child of Her Majesty's Australian Ambassador to the Holy See, his Excellency Mr John McCarthy QC, well-known Sydney barrister and Catholic layman.

An excellent initiative, superbly well executed. May this be the start of a regular series - perhaps like the Ashes series between England and Australia!

Right on cue: here's a fine example of the "Yes" campaign bigotry...

A "Yes" campaigner posted this comment to my last post, proving my very point:

"Whoever you are, you've understood nothing about has happened. I'm sure you think the question is closed, too. You're in for a shock."

There you have it folks!

The Scottish people may have decisively voted in favour of staying in the United Kingdom but this geezer is not going to let a mere vote of the entire people of Scotland put him off.

Oh no!

He's going to "shock" us into an independent Scotland, whether we like it or not!

How, exactly?

By the kind of intimidation tactics that were used by some of the "Yes" campaigners in the campaign?

And yet this is from a person who claims to be an Eastern Orthodox Christian, judging by his Blogs and links.

In fact, this person does not even live in Scotland but in Hastings or Eastbourne!

Nuts!

Here are some unsavoury examples of the intimidatory tactics used by some of the more extreme "Yes" campaigners.


Huffington post had this to say:

NUJ asks to cover the Referendum story free from intimidation






And here is Bruce Ogilvie, one of the leading activists for Siol nan Gaidheal ("the Seed of the Gaels"), who stated in online postings last week that “we have been following [former Scottish Secretary Jim] Murphy” for “in-your-face confrontations”:


"Yes" campaigning racist Bruce Ogilvy of "the Seed of the Gaels" represents no-one but a tiny few like himself who do not know their own Scottish history.


Notice that this fellow claims the right to wear the blue bonnet and white cockade of the Jacobites, so besmirching the good name of Jacobitism and publishing his own ignorance.

The Daily Telegraph summed it up thus:

Anti-English terrorising the No campaign in Scotland

Campaign tactics that discredit the Yes campaign

There can be no excuse for intimidatory behaviour. Is this the shape of things to come from "Yes" campaigners? One hopes not...

Message to Scottish Nationalists: The Jacobites were NOT Scottish Nationalist Socialists...

Here is the map of Scotland showing how the Scottish independence vote went - red for "No" and green for "Yes"...



I think the noes have it!

In fact, the only part of Scotland that voted yes were the cities of the worst turn-out to vote, Glasgow and Dundee.

These, coincidentally, are the parts of Scotland where one hears the most whining and whingeing and racist nonsense about the English and the most feckless twaddle spewed forth about the benefits of Socialism.

Thank goodness, not all Glasweigans and Dundonians are like that. They are let down by those who are but now it's time to call time on the bigotry, hatred and narrow-minded nationalism.

And above all to learn the basic lesson...

The Jacobites were NOT, REPEAT NOT, Scottish Nationalist Socialists!

National Socialism was tried in Germany and failed dismally as a blinkered, totalitarian, racist, violent and murderous creed.

Any sensible person should reject that kind of creed.

The Jacobites, by contrast, were the supporters of King James Stewart as king of all the Three Kingdoms of Scotland, England and Ireland and they were Crown Unionists, not whining, whingeing Nationalist Socialist Republicans, looking only for perpetual hand-outs from a centralised Socialist state.

The Jacobite programme was as follows:
  • Loyalty to the legitimate Monarch and Constitution.
  • A free people in a free state under a Stewart Monarch and the ancient Constitution of these islands.
  • Devolved parliaments under one Crown.
  • Parliaments of King, Lords and Commons or King, Barons and Lairds.
  • Christianity, the religion of the state but toleration for minority religions following the Declarations of Indulgence of King James (Stewart) II and VII of England, Scotland and Ireland.
  • Christian Social teaching to inform the laws of the state, protecting all the people, rich and poor, of whatever estate, race, creed or colour, in justice.
  • The protection of religion and public morals and both the material and spiritual welfare of the people, including the economy, trade, education, justice, employment, relief of the poor and an adequate defence force.
The Bonnie Prince was a Crown Unionist as is clear from his programme.

He always wore the Garter Star because he was not a narrow nationalist but a defender of our ancient Constitution.

See below the entry of His Royal Highness Prince Charles Edward Stewart wearing Highland dress and the Garter Star, flanked by Cameron of Lochiel and MacDonald of Clanranald:
