Fenian Manifesto

During the middle of the 19th Century, a series of factors combined to create a new Irish patriotic movement. This organization was a revolutionary group dedicated to the overthrow of British rule in Ireland. It had its roots in both the United States and Ireland and was popularly known as The Fenian Movement, in honour of the Fianna, the ancient Irish warriors.

The origin of the term Fenian comes from Irish folklore. It described an ancient group of Knights who were self-reliant and had a passion for Irish land. So great was their passion according to the legend, they gave up a chance for world dominion to keep Ireland. This fit very closely with the beliefs of the modern movement and was taken as the organization name.

Times were hard for the Irish, and had been since England took control of the land. In the middle of the 1840's, however, things got much worse. The potato famine of 1845-1848 was a great disaster to the Irish population. In the space of three short years, the inhabitants of the country declined by over two million souls. Some of these two million people immigrated to America while most starved to death or died of disease.

After the famine ended, times remained very hard for the Irish. They never completely recovered from the disaster and many more Irish immigrated to America during the 1850's. Most of these people were of a very strong patriotic belief in their home country, and only left because they had to survive.

The fenian is a fithy breed from northern ireland who support groups like IRA/Sinn Fein, INLA, RIRA etc whose aim was to kill innocent protestants. You can tell a fenian and a protestant apart because protestants are clean and because a fenians eyes are very close together. One way of telling a fenian for those who are not sure is to do the KEY HOLE test. Basically you ask a fenian to look through the key hole at you and if you can see both his/her eyes then they are a fenian, they should then be beaten to a pulp with a blunt implement (make sure you have a shower afterwards)highly toxic!!!
Most fenians have been buggered or fingered by there local priest and don't mind when a priest is arrested and put in jail for these sick offences. Instead of being disgusted like the rest of the normal people in the world they support the priest/buggerer and send him up cigarettes, alcohol, gay porn mags, an phoblact and a 9mm browning pistol to hold for the IRA.
The fenian has a laughable style that consists of skinhead haircuts with a fringe, bumfluff moustaches, missing teeth, cheap fake gold necklaces and massive pikey/gypsy earings and they were nike air max with everything(they think they're cool LOL)and thats just the girls.
A protestant teaches their kids love and respect and encourages them to work hard and provide for their family,
A fenian however teaches their kids to steal, joyride, not to work and rape elderly people.
A fenian hates the british, but ironically takes his/her brew every week from the british.
A fenian has no respect for the dead and can be seen at funerals wearing celtic tops, tracksuits, jeans and air max. A protestant wears a suit etc
prod "you're a fenian"
fenian " how do you know"
Prod " apart from your stench, hideous haircut, missing teeth, laughable moustache, cheap jewellery, fake designer gear, nike air max trainers and celtic top, you're eyes are far too close together, you soap dodging roman".

inoffensive term used by protestants in the north of ireland to try and annoy the rightful inhabitants of the whole of ireland. comes from the fianna in irish mythology and then was hijacked by irish immigrants in the states to form the fenian brotherhood who fought for irish freedom by sitting in bars in new york and lamented about ould ireland who then went on to ram their country of origin down everybodys throat by having st patricks day marches and thanks to them 90 percent of americans lay claim to irish descent on one day of the year when it suits them.
the fools the fools they have left us our fenian dead.
