The Blood Sacrifice – heroism and the fight for freedom

The KTI are utterly opposed to the anti-Christian Marxist murderers of the IRA and their political wing Sinn Fein. But that does not mean that we are incapable of acknowledging the bravery and sacrifice of the men and women who fought and died to free Ireland from British rule.

In particular, we are able to see and understand the immense power of the Celtic and Christian concept of the Blood Sacrifice, and the role its revival can and must play in the future Long War to free the nations of the West from the dark tyranny of political Islamism and the even more evil forces of which its rise is but a symptom.

W. B. Yeat’s poem ‘The Rose Tree’ portrays Ireland oppressed as a rose tree withering away for lack of water, and a conversation between two of Ireland’s freedom fighters (‘terrorists’ if you are on the side their followers have spent more than 100 years trying to kill) over what to do to put things right:

‘O words are lightly spoken,’
Said Pearse to Connolly,
‘Maybe a breath of politic words
Has withered our Rose Tree;
Or maybe but a wind that blows
Across the bitter sea.’

‘It needs to be but watered,’
James Connolly replied,
‘To make the green come out again
And spread on every side,
And shake the blossom from the bud
To be the garden’s pride.’

‘But where can we draw water,’
Said Pearse to Connolly,
‘When all the wells are parched away?
O plain as plain can be
There’s nothing but our own red blood
Can make a right Rose Tree.’
