There are some really stupid bastards living among us, normally the majority of the population see them coming and do a body swerve, these are the kinds of people who think nothing of putting other people’s safety in danger.
Apparently, some dumb bastards have started a protest movement against
Orange marches. Having grown
up in Glasgow from
the 1960’s, I remember the ‘good old days’, except that they weren’t good. So,
what is this new Campaign, well, they have given themselves the catchy title, ‘Fight
Noise With Noise’. The idea is that they want people on marching routes to
disrupt marches by playing and blasting loud, crazy, off-putting music” at
The organiser of this group was keen to stress that the movement is a “non-violent protest” but they want you to endanger yourself and your property while they stand back.
What a bunch of heroes, this new group is, and well, let’s be fair, they are simple minded. Such the heroism displayed by the organiser of this new group, that they don’t have the balls to stand up and be counted as they want to remain anonymous.
Having looked at google, I cannot find their website, but there is supposed to be an announcement on Facebook, obviously wishing to do this campaign on the cheap. The anonymous organiser said:
“If you live on the proposed route, I urge you to get your craziest, loudest, and most off-putting music on as loud as you're comfortable with to combat the noise from them.
“I live at Bridgeton Cross and know the annoyance of these people. They shouldn’t be allowed to march promoting their bigotry, racism, and general intolerance of anything progressive. But, while they’re still in operation, we could make this a thing. I do it to as many marches as I’m able to. Speaker on the window with bass on full. Metal/Industrial music works best, System of a Down and Prodigy are good, but anything with a good solid beat works.”
I have a question, what happens if a ‘daftie’ decides to put bricks through windows of the people who play loud counter music?
Does, the Facebook group cover the cost of replacements?
If someone is assaulted does the group have an insurance policy to pay compensation?
Glasgow City Council under the control of the SNP is said to be considering banning future
this is anti democracy in action, it would be a stupid move, but the Sein Fein
lite SNP might, just might go that road. I assume if this does go ahead then
there could be a court case. Then of course counter demos outside the offices
of all elected SNP MSPs and MPs.
Far from being progressive, this type of stupidity could promote Sectarianism.
The right to march is fundamental in a democracy, any curtailment without good reason, and ‘I don’t like them’ isn’t a good reason must be done under issues like public safety. Orange Walks are part of the history of
the organisation to its credit is involved in charity work.
Finally, I hope no one is stupidity enough to follow the advice of the anonymous organiser; they clearly don’t value people’s safety, welfare or understand what it means to have the right to march.
