McAleese Apologises-Bigots Get Their Wish

I'm very disappointed to see that Mary McAleese has apologised for the comments she made while marking the 60th anniversary of the liberation of Aushwitz.
President McAleese expressed her devastation at the comments she made which angered the Protestant community.
Speaking tonight Ms McAleese said she was deeply sorry and her point was clumsily made.

She went on to say that there was sectarianism on both sides of the community and that she should have included the hatred of Protestants by Catholics in the example she used.
An Orange Order spokesman welcomed the apology,but said it was too early to reconsider a decision to cancel a meeting with the President.

So the President has said sorry.You know what?I'm sorry too.I'm sorry she has bowed to these extremist bigots who saw things in her words that clearly weren't there.
By bowing to the pressures of these hardline narrow-minded hypocrites I have lost alot of respect for her.
Trimble never apologised for his comments about the Irish Republic and no one cared.No one cared that Paisley never apologised for his comments or actions.
Yet this woman's crime is not what she said but what she didn't say and what she implied.
Ridiculous.I hope the people who got their knickers in a twist over this non-issue are satisfied.
Personally,it makes me sick to my stomach.
