This video from Northern Ireland says about itself:
Pastor James McConnell – homophobia
9 August 2014
Why has the media not commented on McConnell’s homophobic comments? Does Robinson condone these anti-gay sentiments as well?
From Metro daily in London, England:
Monday 12 Jun 2017 7:11 pm
The Prime Minister was meeting the 1922 Committee of backbenchers today amid controversy over the government’s discussions with the Democratic Unionist Party of Ulster.
A Tory MP is said to have told HuffPo editor Paul Waugh that the PM had made the apparently flippant comment about LGBT concerns in the meeting today.
The DUP is now infamous across the UK for its extremely conservative, right-wing views.
A ‘confidence and supply’ deal would involve agreeing for the DUP to vote in favour of government policy in Parliament. Such a deal would be necessary for May to pass any policies, as the Tories ended up eight seats short of an overall majority in last Thursday’s general election.
However, there are claims the Scottish Tories could form their own semi-independent group – with its own whip – meaning they wouldn’t be required to vote with May and the government. …
Who are the Democratic Unionist Party?
The Democratic Unionist Party is the biggest unionist party in Northern Ireland – that is, it is against Ulster becoming part of the Republic of Ireland. …
Here’s what you need to know about the Northern Irish party that is now within throwing distance of Westminster.
LINKS TO TERRORISM
Disturbingly, the party has strong historical links to Loyalist paramilitary groups – in particular the terrorist group Ulster Resistance, which was founded by people who ended up becoming prominent DUP politicians. The party’s former leader Peter Robinson, for example, was an active member of the terror group.
The group also collaborated with other terror groups, including the Ulster Volunteer Force, to smuggle deadly arms into the UK.
Although the party has since rescinded violence,
Maybe diminished it a bit, but not abolished it. Read for as recently as 2015 ‘Theresa May’s new partners linked with recent HORRIFIC hammer attack on father-of-three’.
this may seem a bit of a rich move from a party that attacked Jeremy Corbyn for his alleged links to former Northern Irish terrorists.
WOMEN’S RIGHTS – OR A LACK OF THEM
The DUP is notorious for being strongly opposed to reproductive choice – specifically a woman’s right to choose to have an abortion. This makes them the biggest anti-abortion party in the country.
This is why women in Northern Ireland either face a costly and incredibly stressful journey to England and Scotland to have an abortion, or are forced to carry an unwanted pregnancy to term.
SAME SEX MARRIAGE
The DUP are also known for strongly opposing same sex marriage. As a result, Northern Ireland still doesn’t have equal marriage – unlike all of its neighbours Scotland, England, Wales and the Republic of Ireland.
ACCUSATIONS OF RACISM
The DUP is also infamous for pushing for creationism to be taught in schools on a par with proven scientific facts. Creationism is the evangelical belief that Darwin’s theory of evolution is incorrect, and that humans were created whole in God’s image.
