    Irish people are the lowest there is. All they do is get drunk off their asses and dance like idiots when they are drunk and eat potatoes.

    “We’re not Irish, we’re Ulster Scots!”

    A mongrel race of Gaelic Scotii (originally from Ireland before going to Britain after the Romans left and then returning!), Picts, and various English Borderer bandits who are themselves a motley collection of Britons, Romans, Angles, and Norse.

    The Scots-Irish descend from both the Lowlands of Scotland and North England, although there most likely hardly little difference between the two places, being literally right next to one another.

    The Lowlands, especially the south, are very, very Germanic. Angles even settled north of Hadrian’s Wall. Then the Saxon nobles fled there after the Norman invasions. Then the Normans settled there as well.

    Picts dwelled in the north-east of Scotland. I don’t know how much raping and pillaging they inflicted on the Lowlands, but I doubt that they have much kinship with the Lowlanders.

    The Lowlanders also have little Brythonic (Briton) blood. The Angles, Jutes, and Saxons pretty much ethnic cleansed the landscape, and instituted apartheid on the survivors. It’s safe to assume there was next to no mixing in the Lowlands.

    True, the Scots Irish are the mutts of Northern Europe. I wouldn’t have it any other way. ;)

    DNA testing suggests that there has been virtually no infusion of Foreigns, before 1955 anyway…

  8. Time for ya’ll to show,
    we’re all brothers,
    don’t ya know.

    From the Caucus, we all came,
    Caucasian is, our name.
    Ten shofars we call horns,
    Ten virgins, split asunder,
    Ten toes, divided,
    the world is our oyster,
    and hate, our aim.

    The Chosen we did abandon,
    and went our separate ways,
    not lost, but in hiding, until The Time,
    of awakening, in the time of darkness.

    Remember the lesson of the Saxons, as spelled by ‘scholars’, who have deliberately stolen our heritage. For it was ‘Saacs Sons’, as they knew it. They often dropped the leading vowels in those days… and the Sons of Isaac, became Saacs Sons. One of the few tribes to remember their origins. But, we forget, deliberately, because we hated Judah, and their religion of stupid laws.

    God did not want us to have kings, learn the lesson of Samuel and Saul.
    How’s all that centralized government stuff worked out for us, over thousands of years… hmm?

    The darkness is here, sleepers awaken.

    R1b is the dominant Haplogroup in Western Europe and also parts of Central Europe. It also appears in roughly 40% of Germans as well as the populations of the Low Countries. In Ireland, Scotland, and Wales, it reaches 80%. My point being, the so-called “superior” Germainic race has many who share the same Haplogroup with the Irish. Recent genetic studies show that only about 30% of the English have any degree of Anglo-Saxon at all. Most of the English are genetically the same as the Irish. So, while Nordic and Germanic (because the two are NOT the same) people can talk all the sh*t they want, the greatest empire in history was built by the genetic cousins of the Irish. Also, archaeological evidence has proven that the areas of Spain (where the Irish may have originally come from; once thought to be a simple fable though recent gentic studies may lend some credibility to this claim) and France were far more developed than the Germany of the same time period.
