Skip to comments.IRA sympathiser Ted Kennedy was no friend of Britain

It says much about humanitys basic urge to be ruled by dynasties that Teddy Kennedy came anywhere near being elected president in 1980. Whatever his other qualities, his behaviour at Chappaquiddick eleven years earlier, where he might have been able to save Mary Jo Kopechnes life but instead chose to save his own career by waiting until his blood/alcohol level reached a legal level, would have ruled out anyone else from becoming local rat catcher, let alone leader of the greatest nation on earth.
But after the murder of his brothers John and Bobby, Teddy became Americas atheling until the public realised there was little good left to come out of that clan (with the exception of Arnold Schwarzenegger, married to Teddys niece Maria Shriver). Kennedy was no doubt a dedicated servant of Congress and a passionate believer in combating poverty, but his lasting legacy on this side of the Atlantic was to poison Anglo-American relations for a generation. Its not often said aloud but many British people when they first saw United 175 hit the World Trade Centre felt, alongside shock, pity and a sense of solidarity with the American people, also a feeling of now you know what terrorism is like, will you stop funding the murder of our people? For years Kennedy was the bang-drummer-in-chief for brainless Irish-American IRA sympathisers, dimwits who shouted troops out of Dublin! and sang maudlin songs from the comfort of Boston and New York, giving money for strangers 3,000 miles away to murder their neighbours.

Had to look up “atheling” to see if it was a synonym for (oh, I don’t like to use vulgar words) the exit orifice of the gastrointestinal tract.
And that explains O’s disrespect for Great Britain.
No doubt Michelle’s ham handed touch of the Queen was an intended disrespect.
Have to do ole teddy’s bidding.
