The BBC has been slammed for attempting to make a terrorist, Martin McGuinness, into a ‘peacemaker’.
The IRA terror boss once nicknamed the ‘Butcher of Bayside’, died earlier today reportedly from a ‘rare heart condition’.
During his life he commanded the IRA which carried out attacks across Ulster and mainland UK, during three decades of terrorist campaigns, claiming nearly 2,000 lives.
The BBC published a gushing obituary of the IRA boss, omitting any reference to his major role in directing terror against the British Government and civilians. There was one slobbering commentary going as far as to compare him with the one-time terror commander and left-wing pin-up, Nelson Mandela, of whom there is a statue placed outside the Houses of Parliament.

Despite his decades of activity with the terrorist IRA, McGuinness was simply reduced to being a ‘Sinn Féin politician’ by the BBC.
Adam Walker, BNP Chairman, and British Army Veteran had this to say:
“McGuinness was an unrepentant terrorist with the blood of many British squaddies and innocent civilians on his hands.
“He never apologised for all those murdered by the terror group because he had no repentance.
“His stint as a politician came about because terrorism no longer had sympathy in the West, not because he and his murderous ilk decided that terror and murder were wrong.
“The September 11th terror attacks on the World Trade Centre twin towers was one of those catalysts which changed everything.
“In the light of that, the considerable support afforded to the IRA from the Irish-American community – erroneously viewing the IRA’s plight as something romantic while being far removed from the horror and violence – and the US Government’s Universal War on Terror forced the IRA out of the business of terrorism.
“McGuinness had no other recourse but to take on a new role as a politician.”
Following widespread outrage at the public-funded ‘British’ broadcaster, the BBC added to its story quotes from Norman Tebbit who branded the dead terrorist as a ‘coward’ and ‘murderer’.
Lord Tebbit was one of many of those injured in the bombing of Brighton’s Grand Hotel in 1984 which killed five.
Hundreds took to Twitter and other social networks to register their disgust at the BBC.
