Ireland in World War 2

Ireland was neutral in World War 2. While Britain fought hard to save Western Europe, Ireland stood by. It is perhaps the most shameful episode in our history as a nation.

58 Northumberland Rd, Dublin, housed the Nazi German embassy in WW2.
The Nazi flag flew here all during the Holocaust. Because we were neutral.

Ireland was neutral in World War 2


The "chickenhawk" argument


Churchill's 1945 speech

A disgusting editorial in the Meath Chronicle, May 5, 1945, on the deaths of Roosevelt, Mussolini and Hitler, sums up the amoral world of Irish neutrality.

"There is one thing that Germany did, and that was to rout the Jews out of their country. Until we rout the Jews out of this country it does not matter a hair's breadth what orders you make. Where the bees are there is the honey, and where the Jews are there is the money."
- Catholic fundamentalist Oliver J. Flanagan in the Dail, 9 July 1943, as Jewish families are being murdered on an industrial scale across Europe by the Germans.

De Valera's condolences for Hitler in 1945

Both the Taoiseach Eamon de Valera and the President Douglas Hyde offered condolences on the death of Hitler in 1945.

De Valera, a man with no moral compass, called to the Ambassador of Nazi Germany in Dublin, saying: "I certainly was not going to add to his humiliation in the hour of defeat." He threw away all goodwill from the victors of WW2 for years after the war. From a moral point of view it was unforgivable. And from a selfish, self-interest view it was also unforgivable! What an idiot.

Taoiseach Eamon de Valera calls to the German Embassy in Dublin, 2 May 1945, to offer condolences on the death of Adolf Hitler.
Irish Times, May 3, 1945.

President Douglas Hyde also expressed his condolences on the death of Hitler.
Irish Press, May 4, 1945.
Hyde also visited the Nazi ambassador personally.

Ireland's no.1 awkward fact: Ireland is only free because of the British military

Extract from Nazi Germany military atlas and guide to Ireland, 1940 (to help plan an invasion).
"Bergland" is mountains. "Sumpfgebiet" is swamp (bog). "See" is lakes.

The rescue scene in the movie Dunkirk (2017).
Ireland is only free because these men escaped France in June 1940 and Britain was saved.
Does anyone in Ireland care?

Churchill's "We shall fight on the beaches" speech in June 1940 after Dunkirk.
Whatever else he did in a long career, in WW2 Churchill saved Britain and Ireland from extinction.
Ireland needs to recognise this some day.

The strange end of the Battle of Britain, Oct 1940, when the Germans, after crippling losses, basically gave up on the invasion of Britain for the moment. (Though aerial bombing continued into 1941.)
This is the ending scene of the movie Battle of Britain (1969).
Ireland is only free because these men won and saved Britain.
Our democracy would have been snuffed out in a week if they lost.
They saved us too. Most Irish nationalists cannot deal with that. Even today.

Blocked by the regressive left and Islamists on Twitter: I love debate. I love ideas. But the Western left and their friends the Islamic right do not return the favour. Their response to opposing ideas, whether expressed politely or robustly, is often to block. See Who blocks me on Twitter.

I will debate almost anyone. Stick to ideas and I will debate you. But I do have rules. See Who I block on Twitter.

Where to debate? Twitter's best days are over. I am on Twitter at markhumphrys. Twitter was a truly great place for debate before 2016. You could meet everyone in the world, and argue about ideas. Since 2016, Twitter is broken. It is now full of reporting and bans and censorship. In 2019, Twitter even started shadowbanning me for no reason that was ever explained, or could ever be appealed. It is time to find a better place to debate. I am on Parler at markhumphrys.
