Yes folks they're here at last.
The sort of obituaries you won't see anywhere else.
Ones that tell the truth.
So to begin.
A lot of scum have been dying lately.
Let's have a look at one of them.

Major Tom McDowell: Tom McDowell took over the Irish Times around half a century ago. His chairmanship of the newspaper coincided with a most mysterious nay cosmic shift to the far left in its coverage and commentary on political events. Scholars have yet to map exactly what went on in the Irish Times during the period of his tenure at the top. I would suggest that the newspaper became nothing less than a propaganda organ for pan Sovietism and communist party movements everywhere. At the same time it made open war with the Catholic church in order to promote abortion culture, condom culture, contraceptive pill culture and any other social agenda which it perceived to be contrary to Christian tradition. In fact the only religious belief system which has had a favourable hearing in the Irish Times during this time is the peaceloving psychoticised murderously malign religion of Islam. The Irish Times loves Islam. From their point of view, what's not to love! More of that anon. Tom McDowell's present day apologists in the media are pretending that he was merely a businessman who had no real input on the slanted anti American pro IRA extreme feminist atheistic creeping Islamist tosh that has characterised Irish Times output over the past fifty years. My own assessment of Tom McDowell is that he was the lynch pin through which this leftist hijacking of the Irish Times took place. A key figure in this hijacking was the also dead Douglas Gageby. Douglas Gageby was the first editor appointed by McDowell. Let's be clear. Douglas Gageby answered to Tom McDowell. Not the other way round. Gageby's left wing sympathies again remain largely uncategorised by commentators and critics in the Republic of Ireland. Aside from myself that is. Douglas Gageby, the McDowell appointee as editor, was an off the boards howling at the moon left winger. His sympathies for the IRA and for the Soviet Union were blatent. His recruitment of journalists never failed to match the ultra left agenda. Together Tom McDowell and Douglas Gageby remade the Irish Times in their own image. There were no Christians, no conservatives, no patriots, no pro lifers on the staff of the Irish Times. It was wall to wall fembo commie pinkos against the bomb. Against the Americans and British having the bomb that is. Their attitude to Soviet power was more nuanced. In the face of the Soviet threat the Irish Times advocated that we should all disarm and hope for the best. An interesting strategy. So blatent was Douglas Gageby's left wing bias that Tom McDowell felt at one stage he had to distance himself from it publically. To this end it was deliberately leaked that Tom McDowell vehemently disagreed with the attitudes of his editor. The leak was disinformation but phrased in the strongest possible terms. Disinformation designed to allow the hijacking of the Irish Times as a Soviet propaganda instrument to procede in plain view. The leak specifically alleged that Tom McDowell had referred to Douglas Gageby as a "white nigger," a term intended to imply strong disdain and even revulsion for Gageby's views. It was the sort of comment that would have been expected from a putative pseud member of the British Upper Class like McDowell. The comment was also urgently deniable. McDowell need never admit to having made it since the bigoted element in the phraseology was something no one of his pseudo class could ever admit too. Yet the very crassness of it, gave it crediblity. The comment served its purpose in establishing credible distance between McDowell and the leftists he himself was installing at the Irish Times. Apologists for Douglas Gageby on the current Irish Times staff claim that Gageby was critical of the mainstream government party Fianna Fail. This analysis flies in the face of the facts. While Fianna Fail was being led by the IRA gun runner Charles Haughey, Gageby's coverage of Fianna Fail was hugely favourable to that party. On his retirement Gageby openly remarked that he considered Charles Haughey "the greatest Statesman in Irish history." It cannot be accepted that the Irish Times has ever subjected Fianna Fail to due scrutiny. It simply never happened. Before Tom McDowell took up the Chairmanship of the Irish Times and before he appointed Douglas Gageby as its editor, the Irish Times had occupied an oddly honourable though marginalised position in Irish public life. The paper tended to be pro British and pro the Unionist tradition in Northern Ireland. It did contain an inordinate amount of anti Catholic sneering. But there was an innocence to this. And my countrymen tended to let the miserable damned curs away with it. Catholic Ireland was always far more accepting of criticism than its crassly dishonourable Marxist critics pretend. McDowell's apparatchik Gageby moved the paper from occasional anti Catholic sneering into a mode where the destruction of the ancient church was the number one item on the agenda. During the years when McDowell's protege Gageby ran the Irish Times, the paper pursued an alliance with shadowy leftist figures within the Irish political, legal and judicial professions. This alliance enabled the Irish Times to continually challenge laws banning abortion, divorce and contraceptives. Under McDowell and Gageby the paper hadn't just shifted a gear into the modern world. It had embraced Sovietism, anti Americanism, Feminism and all the debilitating liberal relativisms which have so dessicated the rule of law in Ireland. And the Irish Times coverage of sex abuse was as slanted as its coverage of everything else. Cases involving clerical people were recycled hundreds of times. The 99.99 percent of child abuse cases that do not involve Christians of any hue, were effectively ignored. Sex abuse victims were important. But some victims were more important than others in the pages of the Irish Times. Not the victims who had suffered the most. Oh no. The Irish Times was only interested in sex abuse victims that could help it discredit the Catholic church. The Irish Times committed the worst crimes of which it ever accused Bishops. It concealed sex abuse. It concealed the true nature and extent of sex abuse in Irish society. It did so solely in an attempt to create a false image in the public mind, that most sex abuse cases involve priests. The Irish Times did not have to tell a single lie to land this propaganda coup. It only had to ignore 99.99 percent of the truth. This egregious practice has been perpetrated in the Irish Times to the present day. All these scurrilous activities of the Irish Times in the modern era have come about because Tom McDowell wanted them to. Douglas Gageby and his successors did not fart without Tom McDowell's permission. Nor did any other of his senior staff appointees. The strange collection of atheists, feminists and Stalinist communists who make up the staff of the Irish Times (and whose sons and daughters are currently inheriting their Mammy's and Daddy's jobs there) this shower of faux radicals were always dancing to the puppet master's tune. Ground control to Major Tom. Long live Karl Marx. Death to the Catholic church. Ignition's on. I call them faux radicals because in truth there's nothing too radical about everyone in the room saying exactly the same thing at exactly the same time about exactly the same subjects. Was Tom McDowell a Soviet agent? Was Tom McDowell a servant of atheistic communism? Was Tom McDowell a foul traitor to the Republic of Ireland? His Chairmanship came about at precisely the time when Stalin and friends were murdering 50 million human beings in Russia, Mao was killing 70 million in China, Pol Pot was wiping out one quarter of the population of Cambodia, and Soviet armies were transforming Africa into a veritable charnel house of death. If McDowell was a Soviet agent during this period, the crime and the incompetence and the malignancy is almost beyond measure. I say this. If it walks like a commie, talks like a commie, and infiltrates the Irish Times with commies like a commie, then it's a commie. And what has the death of communism meant for the clapped out old commies who survive McDowell? Did they ever admit their wrong doing? An occasional one maybe. But mostly they just kept their heads down and looked around for new subversions to support. The peaceloving whackjob religion of Islam filled the bill admirably. The subversion of choice now for Irish Times journalists is Al Qaeda and the Muslims. Of course from the business point of view the Irish Times' favourable reportage of Muslim terror has no possible upside. But making money was never the Irish Times' main mission. The political project was always more important. The money they made happened almost by accident. As the paper subsumed power to itself, money flowed with it. And incompetent Board members have squandered most of that money now anyway. Frittered away on a voodoo wind. The great Ozymandiasses of the Irish Times are unlikely to draw a pension. Any of them. And soon they're going to come looking for the Irish government to bail them out. They're going to ask our corrupt kleptocratic Fianna Fail government to preserve the Irish Times as an icon of Irish public life by compelling the Irish people to finance its existence and agendas. I don't want the Irish government to bail out the Irish Times. The Irish Times has moved seamlessly from pro Soviet anti Americanism to pro Al Qaeda anti Americanism. I think they should be let stand or fall on their own merits. If they have any merits. Why are they doing it? Why are they presenting terrorist propaganda masquerading as news in the guise of Robert Fisk and Michael Jansen's Islamist drivellings. Why did they ever do it? No. It wasn't for the money. This advocacy of nihilistic doctrines seeking the overthrow of our free society. It couldn't have been for the money. First the commies. Now the Mussies. Perhaps the Irish Times and its decrepit staff so hate Christian Ireland that they would support any malign excresence from the seventh ring of hell in its place. Perhaps they hate life so much, that what they really want is an end to it all. For all of us. Once it was Stalinist communism. Now it's Shariah law. The ideologues have changed. But the song remains the same. Hey Tom McDowell. Burn in hell.
