Captain B, what you are discussing is your own political views. That's fine but the thread, as I understood it, was about songs that are seen as seditious by the Irish government. When I lived in Ireland (1968-1970), these were the "impolite" songs and singing them was enough to elicit suspicion and attention from the Special Force. This is not hearsay. I received notice from the Castle for visiting an old and placid Cathal Goulding.
And, yes, the Provos did expect the Irish government to come to the aid of endangered Irishmen on Irish soil. They were not placated by Jack Lynch's speeches in Free Derry. They felt betrayed. So they, expressed their disappointment in song, surely, a more humane protest than Michael Collins faced. That is the setting for these songs and, whether you agree with the sentiments or not, they are appropriate entries for this thread. Illegal or "inapropriate songs are, by nature, born in anger.
I have, recently, learned quite a bit about President Eisenhower. It turns out that he was a brilliant and compassionate man who was the first to identify, what he called, the "military-industrial" complex. I have listened to recordings of his speeches and I was moved and impressed by his obvious sincerity but that has not stopped me from singing anti-Ike songs like "The Talking Little Rock Blues" or recognizing complicity of ommision in the matter of Joe McCarthy.
