Owen Jones: Lie-RA

Sackville Street (Dublin) after the 1916 Easter Rising

Owen-Jones apparently thinks the Easter Rising was a peaceful protest that just left a bit of litter lying about after – 466 dead and 2217 wounded just a little collateral damage?

Owen Jones: Lie-RA
by WikiGuido

Fresh from telling the Sinn Fein summer school to “take inspiration” from the Easter Rising, in which 466 died and 2,217 civilians were wounded, Owen Jones, under criticism on Twitter, claimed to his critics: “I vehemently oppose all IRA violence and have never expressed any support for it”.

Is it a false claim? You’ve never supported the IRA? @OwenJones84 @gm_stone

Really? How is that compatible with your statement “I militarily support the IRA against the British State.” @OwenJones84 @gm_stone

@SocialismEvil I’m sorry? I vehemently oppose all IRA violence and have never expressed any support for it, so withdraw please.

“Never”? Oh really?

Actually the truth is that Owen was an IRA supporter and once wrote…

“I militarily support the IRA against the British State”

Owen, who supports votes for 16 year olds, now says:

@GuidoFawkes I was *15 years old*. I was completely wrong about that and many other things. I was a child. This is contemptible.

Owen describes his former ramblings as “stupidity”. At what age exactly did he stop supporting IRA/Sinn Fein? He was at their summer school last month…
