How's that hipster pride working out for you.

The whole faux Irish thing is total bull****. Irish people think they're idiots.

Corn beef and hash is good. Guinness sucks. So does ethnic pride and nationalism. Especially when your mascot is Dropkick Murphys.

I'm going to be 100% serious for a bit.

I grew up in the Merrimack Valley in northeast Mass. I have very vivid memories from the late 60s and early 70s of St. Patrick's day. That entire area was made up of immigrants, or decendants of immigrants from mostly Italian, Irish, and French Canadian heritage. By then, the three cultures had spent enough time working and living together that there were really no lines anymore.

Every St. Patrick's day a bunch of the grown-ups would organize a huge dinner at a local American Legion hall. Between adults and kids we're talking upwards of a hundred people all celebrating together. The wives all manned the kitchen and corned beef and cabbage with carrots and potatoes overflowed.

Gallons of beer, great music, dancing, way too much second hand cigarette smoke, and eventually, the alpha males trying to one up each other with boilermakers (drop a shot of whiskey into a beer and then chug it) would end the night and somehow we'd end up home and safe instead of wrapped around a telephone pole.

It was as big as Christmas, Thanksgiving, and Easter.

Snark all you want, but it was a really big thing. There's still some of that left to this day.

Wait, how does that contradict parades and nationalism sucking?

Tradition isn't always founded on the brightest of ideas mate, no matter how fun resulting festivities may be.

Did you really not get what I tried to put across with a genuine experience from actually being there a few decades ago when the traditions were being established?

Are you of the opinion that pride in Nationalism 100% sucks? If no, we can keep the discussion going. If yes, I'm out.

You come across sometimes as smart. Other times you come across as naive and prone to snark talking points instead of sound logic. You always just want to argue for the sake of aguing, without actually considering the dissenting opinion.

Again, Being an ******* just for being an ******** sake.

(you planning on growing up and shedding your pretensious, cynical, pompous, arrogant, and dissmissive persona anytime soon so that you can actually engage in grownup debates?)



Also, **** ***. You are the most pretensious ******* **** I've ever met online. Congratulations.

If the traditions were just being established in the 60s and 70s, they sure didn't last long. I grew up in Massachusetts less than fifteen years after you, am both Irish and French Canadian, and I have no idea what you're talking about.

Sorry you missed it. What part of Mass? Although small, an extremely diverse state.
