John Lennon.The "Peace Activist" who supported murderers.

In this world there are good people and bad people. There are those who will go out and sacrifice themselves for a cause, people like Gandhi, who almost starved himself to death in protest at the sectarian violence that swept India at the time of independence. Then there are those like Winnie Mandela, who gain for themselves false reputations as freedom fighters, while presiding over the murder and torture of their political opponents. But perhaps the worst type of hypocrite would be someone who made a fortune from the gullible masses, by writing and singing about their love for world peace, and then used their fame, and the money they derived from the afore mentioned gullible masses to give aid and support to an organisation which practiced murder on a massive scale. The hypocrite I am singling out for condemnation here is that "icon of the twentieth century" John Lennon, and lest any of you doubt the veracity of what I have to say, you have only to look at the picture I am placing at the head of this article.

The placard that he is carrying offers support to the Provisional IRA. This is an organisation that was dedicated to murder on a massive scale, although this does not seem to have bothered, "peace activist" and hypocrite, John Lennon.


John Lennon's friends did this in Ireland and Britain.

"Killed 1,775 people from 1970 to 2005, maimed several thousand more in shootings and explosions, and devastated scores of towns and cities in Northern Ireland and England with vehicle bombs and firebombs."

Six hundred and twenty one of those murdered by the friends of this "great peace campaigner", John Lennon, were civilians, that is men, women, and children. When you sit listening to "Imagine" or "Give peace a chance", think of that picture, and remember all of the victims.

John Lennon supported murders in Vietnam as well.

Another cause that Mr Lennon adopted as his own was that of the Vietnamese communists during the Vietnam War. In 1969, along with his wife Yoko Ono he staged a "bed in for peace" in a hotel in Amsterdam. He declared that he would maintain his protest until America withdrew from the war in Vietnam. A few years later he got his wish when they did leave that country. Between 1975 and 1980 at least 360,000 people died at the hands of his fellow travellers in that unfortunate country. There is no record of John Lennon making any protest about that. He claimed to be at the forefront of the movement for world peace, but, like the hypocrite he was, he was always highly selective about whose genocide he would condemn.

What chance did John Lennon's friends give these people?

Forgive the vomit inducing song.

Possibly the weirdest book ever. Readers love it though

John Lennon shot in 1980. "Good riddance to bad rubbish".

The world reacted with shock when John Lennon was shot in 1980. World leaders almost fell over themselves to pay tribute to someone considered an apostle of peace. His nauseating anthem "imagine" topped the bestseller lists for months. Since then plaques have been laid, and statues have been erected to his memory. Every magazine and internet publishing site is overloaded with articles in praise of him. How easily are the people fooled. It was sad when Mark David Chapman shot John Lennon dead in 1980. But only because it was not a fitting end. It would really have been better if he could have been brought alive to Belfast, or London, or Manchester, or Birmingham, or anywhere in Vietnam. Then he should have been made to stand with another placard saying "I supported the people who murdered your husband/wife/child/grandmother/grandfather etc. I did it because I wanted to increase my millions by pretending to promote peace, while really lending support to the perpetrators of genocideā€. Leave him there in any of those locations. It would have saved Mr Chapman a bullet.
