Revolutionary Hymns: There’s no one as Irish as Barack Obama

For your amusement, here’s a little ditty from Berzerkley’s Starry Plough club. Take note of the quotation on the wall behind the singer:

“No Revolutionary movement is complete without its poetic expression. If such a movement has caught hold of the imagiantion [sic] of the masses, they will seek a vent in song for the aspirationns [sic], fears, and hopes the loves and hatreds engendered by the struggle. Until the movement is marked by the joyous, defiant singing of revolutionary songs, it lacks one of the most distinctive marks of a popular revolutionary movement; it is the dogma of the few and not the faith of the multitude”

-James Connolly 1907

Hopefully, the USA won’t become the new Ulster after November 4. Bill Ayers and his buddies will be leading the way (William Ayers’ forgotten communist manifesto: Prairie Fire).

To quote The One himself, this is one of those “ethnic stereotypes that made me cringe.”
