An Irish literary archive treat for #StPatricksDay

That aired on the BBC yesterday — Saint Patrick’s Day. So did this clip:
Our president making #StPatricksDay2023 all about our Patron Saint.
Nah, just kidding.
He made it all about racism and xenophobia..
Apparently, St. Patrick was exactly the same as the welfare migrants who tear up their passports when they land in Ireland to get free stuff 4life pic.twitter.com/4TLFjy9obV

Isn’t it getting a wee bit obvious, Gentle Reader? On one of the most joyous Christian celebrations in the Western world, what do those…people lambaste us with? Nothing Christian, to be sure. Paeans to paganism. Lectures about “racism,” “xenophobia,” and “the contributions of migrants” to Irish history!
There is a full-scale attack in progress on everything Christian, everything Western, and – I must include this, so forgive me if it raises your neck hair yet again – everything white. It no longer attempts to be subtle. It no longer uses the “but” sidestep. It simply effaces and obliterates all the distinguishing characteristics of Christian-Enlightenment civilization. It gives everything non-Christian, non-Western, and non-white pride of place even on occasions such as Saint Patrick’s Day.
I fear for Easter this year. What will they batter us with then? Islamic scripture? The life and loves of Muhammad? Or perhaps a recruitment video for al-Qaeda?
It’s time to get seriously angry.
