All of this would have been written off as a myth if it weren’t for Rebecca Fried, a rising high school freshman—who one of the preeminent scholars on the Irish diaspora in the United States now calls a “hero” and “quite extraordinary”—and who simply couldn’t believe it, either.
Rebecca never set out to prove the thesis wrong. She was just interested in an article her dad brought home from work one day.
You cannot trust any "scientific" information that comes out of a Leftist. Social Justice Warriors ALWAYS LIE.
As an aside, if you want to know how much the Irish (and Catholics) were hated, look up the Mass Rocks. The Irish were forbidden by the English from celebrating their faith in their churches. So they had to say Mass on rocks hidden from view of population centers. And often, when the Brits would find a priest saying Mass, they would slaughter him and as many of the congregation as they could.
Think about THAT as you ponder how much you're willing to suffer for your faith in America today.
