Planting too early, racist anglos come up with a million "reasons"for famine. When I was young follies in vancouver used to say it was caused by the irish refusing to eat fish. The idea being that on an island there was fish everywhere. Rationalizations worthy of the Nazi paper der sturmer.
They still follow the nzai holocaust denial tactics of minimumizalizing the number. Once an irisman steps on a ship his death is not part of the famine. There are quarantine islands all over eastern Canada. With hundfed"so of thousands of irish grave. Those poor souls died of disease brought on by malnutrition and inhuman transport conditions. A quarter million irish(and some Scotts gaels) are hurried on grosse Isle alone, but they don't,t count. Like all gaels they were not human to the racist militaristic empire. The same empire, I might add, that terrorized iraqi civilians and tortured many people there.
New brunswick has thirty five thousand irish graves on the quarantine island in the mouth of the mirimicl river. The English settlers let them die. Brave acadiens roed over at night to free a few and nursed them back to health. Onfortunatelt the numbers were too big to make much difference in the death rate. There were less than seventy thousand acadiens, and at least one hundred and fifty thousand on quarantine islands in the maritimes(new brunswick, nova Scotia, and prince Edward island).
The cruelty and barbarism of the English has few equals in human history. And some Anglo folk song circles banners singing irish rebel songs. Anglo racism knows no bounds.
