A sad reflection of anti Catholic Scotland.
We were alerted to this video last night by a fellow Celtic fan. While most of the attention of the media is on Celtic and Rangers supporters sectarianism and bigotry is rife among many other supports and communities in Scotland.
The truth is that the majority of this bigotry in Scotland is aimed at Roman Catholics, anyone of Irish decent and Celtic supporters regardless of their religion or ethnic origin.
The video is from a Motherwell supporters Scottish Cup Final pre-match party. Motherwell are one of many Scottish football clubs who publicise themselves as inclusive “family clubs” where bigotry, prejudice and sectarianism never rears it’s ugly head. The video sadly shows that this is not the case.
The pre game entertainment was provided by the an amalgamation titled as: Crown Defenders ” Motherwell Loyal1886″. Who are basically an Orange Order band. I doubt that they are sympathisers of the Roman Catholic faith, Celtic Football club or any ethnic minority.
Motherwell will claim that this is a minority and so will Dundee, Hearts, Kilmarnock, St Mirren, St Johnstone etc. However the truth is that we all have a minority but some of us have less of a minority than others.
What Motherwell can’t deny is that their supporters are seen and heard to be singing the line “King James and all his rebel scum” during a renditioning of the Rangers and Orange Lodge favourite “The cry was no surrender”.
I’m dying to hear what Pat Nevin an Rob Maclean have to say on the matter.
This video may go some way to explaining why Motherwell supporters Unfurled a Union flag as they were leaving Celtic Park last month when their team were down 3-0.
We all know the truth that a lot of these “Family Clubs” in Scotland are mainly anti Catholic for the fact that their narrow minded support can’t differentiate between Irish and Roman Catholic.
It’s time that this Government and the Judiciary admitted that that most sectarian related violence is directed towards not only Roman Catholics but any one of any religion who wears a Celtic top or scarf.
Enjoy the family clubs pre game entertainment
So how is this new law going to deal with this ?
Unlike BBC Scotland we provide real evidence of sectarian singing.
