"To be a Ranger is to sense the sacred trust of upholding all that such a name means in this shrine of football. They must be true in their conception of what the Ibrox tradition seeks from them. No true Ranger has ever failed in the tradition set him." - William Struth  
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

The Hypocrisy Of The Obsessed Part Three

Written by: Aces High
Wednesday, 8th April 2015

Our third article focuses on another bigot named Robert Bruce Kilpatrick.

Kilpatrick is a Dundee United fan who works for HMRC in East Kilbride, and generally goes by his middle name.

Before he closed his account in a panic, shortly after our earlier HMRC exposures, he spewed his bile on Twitter as @disgruntledegg, and is very close to other known haters such as Paul Belton and Michael Lynch:

Open Letter To Stewart Regan

Written by: Concerned Fan
Thursday, 26th March 2015

Dear Mr Regan,

The actions of a large number of the Scotland support at Hampden last night (Wednesday 25th March) brought great shame on our nation by their politically/racially motivated behaviour in the booing of the National Anthem of Northern Ireland (and the UK).

This game was covered by current legislation.

The Hypocrisy Of The Obsessed Part Two

Written by: Aces High
Wednesday, 25th March 2015

Last week we exposed Apex Scotland employee Paul Belton, a closet sectarian bigot, hater of all things Rangers and close friend of Celtic Chief Executive, Peter Lawwell and his family. With this article we will concentrate on Belton's family.

Paul regularly tweets to his cousin, Michael Lynch, a.k.a. @Sgt_trousers on Twitter. The cousins both grew up in and around the Newton Mearns/Barrhead area of Glasgow. Much of their communication is made up of their salacious hate for Protestants, Rangers and anything to do with the club.

Michael Lynch is a senior employee within HMRC and if we are to believe he has an understanding of the Civil Service Code of Conduct, he should know better than to use Twitter to wage his bigoted sectarian, and at times homophobic, views under the guise of his @Sgt_trousers alter-ego.

Lynch also wears the "Obsessed" badge of honour emblazoned on his profile, fixating on the idea that Rangers fans are "zombies".

A Tribute To Davie Cooper

Written by: Moody Blue
Monday, 23rd March 2015

On 23 March 1995, the footballing genius that was Davie Cooper suddenly passed away.   His death was a tragedy not only for his family and friends, but also for thousands of us Rangers supporters who stood awe-struck on the terraces almost unable to believe the sheer genius of the man.

The fans of his former clubs, Motherwell and Clydebank, also felt extreme sadness at his passing but it is the Rangers fans, his fans, the ones that he thrilled for so long that felt the greatest loss. “Super Cooper” was one of ‘The People’.  He was the embodiment of what it is to be a Ranger and will forever be revered as that in the hearts of those of a generation who were fortunate enough to have witnessed his sublime talent.

Extinguishing The Flame Of Liberty

Written by: NathanRobert86
Sunday, 22nd March 2015

"A man jailed for four months for singing a song. Despite this, the media stays silent."

No, this is not from the page of an Orwell novel. It is an event which recently occurred in present-day Scotland. Jail time is now given out by the SNP (via the OBIF Act 2012) for a variety of so-called 'offensive' behaviours' (ostensibly to prevent 'public disorder').

I personally see the act responsible for the criminalization of songs such like 'The Billy Boys' as nothing but an authoritarian assault on civil liberties. Freedom of expression, and effectively thus freedom of thought, is now a memory in Scotland. What shall not be forgotten by many readers is that Scotland is the crucible of political liberty; with a tradition of individual expression stemming from the Covenanters down to such seminal Scottish Enlightenment figures as Hume and Adam Smith.
