Wokeness requires reinterpreting everything through the lens of race and that includes the IRA which was just too white.
Ireland 1921: how republicans used their whiteness to win freedom – The Guardian
In February 1921, newspapers in London began to publish stories about how military lorries in Ireland were carrying prisoners as hostages in the hope of deterring attacks by the IRA, the guerrilla army fighting British rule since 1919…
Although the Irish revolutionaries worked to forge links with anti-colonial movements across the world, they were increasingly aware that proclaiming their whiteness was a clever card to play. The Irish representative at the peace conference in Versailles in 1919, Seán T O’Kelly, had been bitterly disappointed at his failure to secure a meeting with President Woodrow Wilson. “It seems,” he told an American journalist, “that the blacks and yellows, all colours and races, may be heard before the conference except the Irish.”
By May 1919, Erskine Childers, the former English officer and bestselling spy novelist, who had become Sinn Féin’s chief propagandist, was amplifying O’Kelly’s theme. In Paris, Childers pointed out in a letter to the Times, Britain had set about fixing new frontiers of nations the prime minister, David Lloyd George, had scarcely heard of, while failing to deal with Ireland. Was Ireland, Childers asked, to be “the last unliberated white community on the face of the globe?”
But De Valera made no mention of Ireland’s affinities with anti-colonial movements when he toured the American south in 1920. In Georgia, he shared a stage with veteran Confederate soldiers in their rebel uniforms; in Birmingham, Alabama, he wooed his audience by reminding them that Ireland “was the only white nation on earth still in the bonds of political slavery”.
Does this mean that Ireland is canceled now?
But just wait until the Guardian finds out how few Bolsheviks were black.
