British Imperialist Quotes By Liam Mellows

The Free State is British created and serves British Imperialist interests. It is the buffer erected between British Capitalism and the Irish Republic. — Liam Mellows

British Imperialist Quotes By Steve Almond

They make us feel specific things we might never have felt otherwise. Every time I listen to "Sunday Bloody Sunday," for instance, I feel a pugnacious righteousness about the fate of the Irish people. I hear that thwacking military drumbeat and Bono starts wailing about the news he heard today and I'm basically ready to enlist in the IRA and stomp some British Protestant Imperialist Ass, hell yes, bring on the fucking bangers and mash and let's get this McJihad started. — Steve Almond

British Imperialist Quotes By David Harvey

The British imperialist logic that led to the Opium Wars reflected this: there was a lot of silver in China, so the idea was to sell Indian opium to the Chinese, get all that silver out in that lucrative sale, and thereby pay for all the goods that were being produced in Manchester and sent to India. When the Chinese resisted opening their doors to the opium trade, the British response was to knock them down with military force. — David Harvey

British Imperialist Quotes By Grigor Dimitrov
