GENDER EQUALITY….HERE WE GO AGAIN…..

The Irish Government has proposed the creation of senior academic posts specifically for women at university level. The Government is aiming to address the scarcity of women in senior-level academic positions in Ireland under its Gender Action Plan. The plan is in response to slow progress when it comes to boosting female representation in academia and higher education at senior and management level.
Over the next three years, it plans to fund dozens of women-only professorships in an effort to “eradicate gender inequality” in third-level institutions across Ireland.
Under the scheme, up to 30 women-only professorships will be established, which will cost approximately €6m over the next three years.Minister of State for Higher Education Mary Mitchell O’Connor, TD, said she hopes to see women holding 40pc of professorships by 2024.
The Gender Action Plan report notes that progress in Ireland has been slow compared to other countries in Europe. If current rates of progression are maintained, it could take two decades for the 40pc goal to be achieved.

ENJOY THE REST OF YOUR LIFE…….

I don’t do a weekly shop , If I did do a weekly shop it would mean that there would be no necessity for me to leave my flat from one end of the week to the other and , as an older man living on his own , that would not be a good or particularly healthy thing. So every day I hop onto my small wheeled , fold-up bike and cycle into the city centre to buy whatever I need and thereby get some fresh air and exercise.  Today I went into Dunne’s Stores and picked up some burgers , cheese and other food stuffs – When I arrived at the check out a young man ( and I think , gay man ) smiled and said hello as he checked my items after which he gave me my change.  As I turned away from him with my bag of goodies I heard him say , ” enjoy the rest of your life ” , an expression I had never heard before. I left the supermarket , walked through the Stephens Green Shopping Centre and out into the street with a vague sense of something like unease.   I was not quite sure if I had just had a pleasant experience or if I had  been insulted by a sarcastic bitchy SJW gay person.

You see , I never leave my flat without putting on my Trinity College beanie ,  my little hat or cap thing with the Trinity crest on the front. Everywhere I go it sits on top of my head for all the world to see……..but people don’t see the Trinity crest  due to the fact that it is obscured by a large round Donald Trump campaign badge.  It is very visible and very obvious and quite unmistakable and sits between two smaller but equally visible and  obvious Star Of David badges which no one could avoid noticing or understanding the significance of. I can state with confidence that there is not a single human being who , coming into contact with me , does not know exactly where I stand on certain issues. And so – given the fact that millions of people have managed to convince themselves that Donald Trump is building concentration camps all across America for immigrants , black people , lesbians and gays and God knows what else , I can’t help but wonder if the young man at the check out was simply being nice or perhaps just responding  negativity to what was literally staring him in the face as he looked at me.

But I have also been wondering about something else. Why do I seem to be only one doing this – wearing my politics , my status as part of the resistance , on my beanie rather than my sleeve and in as public a manner as possible ?  I have two other bikes apart from the one mentioned at the beginning of this article , both of which have Pegida decals on the frames – it is my way of saying , “You are not going to intimidate me “. So why is it that I have never seen a Trump bumper sticker , or badge , or decal or indeed anything to indicate that there are people out there who support Trump or brexit or any of the other things people like me believe in ? There are certainly no shortage of people in Ireland who support Trump , brexit and such causes – social media is full of them and their brave and forthright opinions which , of course , are invariable given behind the anonymity that platforms such as Twitter and the likes afford. There are plenty of Tommy Robinson supporters and quite a few people who follow the For Britain YouTube channel but you would never guess this if you were not active in such matters yourself. There are no street protests defending free speech on the streets of Dublin , no pickets outside the headquarters of Google just down the road from where I live. There is in fact nothing………not a hint or whisper of discontent , nothing.   For myself , I’m an old man and by no means as healthy as I once was , but I do the little I can.  I pay my modest monthly subscription to the For Britain Party , I wear my badges , to let others who feel as I do know that they are not alone and to let the so-called anti racists and anti fascists  know that they are not going to intimidate me or shut me up.

I am not going to enjoy the rest of my life. I am going to die knowing that everything I believe in , everything I value is doomed to destruction. I am not optimistic for the future and all the indicators suggest , strongly suggest , that we are going to lose this war. I would like to believe that Anne Marie Waters is right when she insists that it is not too late but I think it is or at least it is too late for things to change peacefully. Donald Trump’s election as president has changed nothing in any fundamental way and neither has brexit.  The enemy within is brainwashing the next generation and closing down more and more websites and YouTube channels , Gab is under attack and these things are only going to get worse , they are getting worse by the week and the multiculturalists have made it crystal clear that they have no interest in compromises – and why should they consider compromise when their total victory is in plain sight.

sure isn’t bigotry a terrible thing

President Michael D. Higgins has just been re elected as the president of Ireland. The final result is not in just yet but it seems he has received 70% of the vote. Peter Casey , a business man and political outsider who along with two of the candidates did a stint on the Dragons’ Den TV show in Ireland is expected to get about 23% of the vote which is a victory for him considering he was predicted to get 1 or maybe 2% at most at the start of the election campaign.

During the campaign Casey had been critical of the travelling community and had spoken out against the splintering of Irish society into ethnic , religious and other groups  and had behaved in a generally politically incorrect manner as a result of which he had , of course , been called racist and intolerant by the media and the chattering classes as a whole , all of which it is generally agreed , helped to deliver him the relatively high vote he has ended up getting.  I had intended voting for him myself untill , in the middle of a RTE interview , he casually referred to President Tump as a lunatic……..which , it must be said , probably had nothing to do with him jumping on the bandwagon but was simply a reflection of the man’s particular style of expression.

But the fact that this man ended up getting nearly 1/4 of the popular vote is significant and has created a debate of sorts about that section of Irish society who feel they can no longer express an opionion without running the risk of being called racist or bigoted and it is the first time I personally have heard the Irish media discuss or even acknowledge this . A few months ago a new political party was formed here with the express purpose of achieving an Irish brexit. It would be wrong of course to read too much into all this as the Irish have , for the most part , bought into the whole multicultural nightmare and virtue signalling and all the rest of it but it is perhaps a glimpse , a very faint glimpse of something going on in the background. – And speaking of the background , I am listening to my radio as I write this and in that same background the media and sundry guests who are discussing the election result are warning about bigotry and Trumpism and intolerance without a single dissenting voice so it seems they really just can’t help themselves and are totally captive to their own narrative ………….I must admit that I find it nothing short of painful to listen to Irish radio these days  where even the arts programmes  are contaminated with this endless virtue signalling.  It is literally like living in some science fiction ,  dystopian , futuristic nightmare that I vaguely remember reading about in comics and seeing in the cinema as a child back in the ’50’s except that this is all too real and it is in the here and now and is getting more dystopian and nightmarish by the day.

Meanwhile , our president Michael D. Higgins will continue to serve – all the people of Ireland in a spirit of inclusiveness – to help build a truly tolerant and caring society. He is a great man for diversity and inclusion and tolerance and gender rights and what ever you will have yourself.  And sure isn’t it a grand little country – we were the first to introduce gay marriage after all  …………….and we are practically bringing in dark-skinned people from africa by the boat load. Indeed , indeed we are a marvelous people – we are so good , so inclusive and tolerant that we are running out of words that truly express how wonderful we are…….We carry our goodness like a cross , a burden we accept without a though for any reward. It is almost painful to be so good.  Don’t you agree ?   You do agree , don’t you.

THE RACE CARD IN IRISH POLITICS

On the 26th October the Irish people will elect a new president. There are six candidates one of whom is the incumbent President ,  Michael D. Higgins.  Peter Casey , who is also a candidate , is a business man with a national profile due to his stint on RTE ‘s  Dragons’ Den programme – but Peter is in trouble…….. Peter , it seems , is a racist…..

It all began when six Irish traveller families were offered accommodation in six brand new council houses which they immediately  refused because the houses did not have stables or a 1/2 acre of land which the travelers had demanded. It should be noted that there is a huge homelessness crisis in Ireland today which is getting worse by the day and which now  has reached the level of a national scandal.  Casey made the mistake of describing the situation as ‘ bonkers’ and stated in an RTE interview that the houses should be offered to the next people on the housing list. He also made the mistake of explaining that he believed that all the people of Ireland should be treated equally as oppose to being treated differently because of their ethnic background.  This of course was the proverbial red rag to the Irish media who immediately denounced Casey as racist , divisive and lacking compassion etc etc. as , of course , did all the other candidates including the President , Michael D. Higgins. He was even accused of playing the Trump card.

Remarkably , Peter Casey stood his ground and refused to apologize which of course poured more fuel on the media flames. Funnily enough the Irish people seem for the most part to agree with him or at least a significant portion of the Irish people do. Today Casey stated on the radio that he may withdraw from the race due to the attacks on his character and he reiterated his belief that all people should be treated equally and with respect and as individual Irish people rather than as members of an ethnic group.

Warwick University reschedule Anne Marie Waters

A talk by far-right politician Anne Marie Waters organised by the PPE Society has been postponed today. The “Far Right Off Campus” protest planned in response to the event has also consequently been postponed.
This afternoon, Warwick PPE posted on the event page: “This event has been rescheduled to a later date. Please look out for further information.”
When asked about the reason for rescheduling the talk, the PPE society told The Boar: “With the event occurring so early in term, some logistical issues were unable to be resolved to the high standard that we require for all our events. While the rescheduling is unfortunate, it is important that this event is done right.
“As we have previously stated, none of our speaker bookings are indicative of an endorsement of their points of view. However, we would be surprised if there were no negative responses to some of our events. The mission of our Speaker Series is not to provide only viewpoints that few will disagree with, but to provide a range of ideas to stimulate debate. We are deeply concerned with the concept of students acting as moral arbiters, deciding what is and isn’t allowed as an idea.
“This being said, we welcome and encourage all peaceful and legal protests, as these carry just as much weight in a free and healthy democracy as free speech does. However we condemn in the strongest possible terms any personal attacks on individuals within PPE Society or the Executive Team. Sending an invitation to a speaker is certainly not an act that is deserving of online abuse.”
The talk, the first in Warwick PPE’s Speaker Series, was originally scheduled for 6:00pm today. The event was entitled “Culture, Politics and Free Speech: British Society” and according to the event page, Anne Marie Waters would discuss “the state of rights and freedoms of women in the UK, the importance of defending free speech, as well as the contemporary issues of immigration and multiculturalism.”
Anne Marie Waters has been known to hold controversial views in the past, as the founder and leader of the anti-Islam party For Britain. She was also part of the UK Independence Party, standing for the party’s leadership in 2017.
The “Far-Right Off Campus!” protest, originally scheduled for today at 5:30pm, was organised by Warwick Labour, Warwick Pride, Warwick for Free Education (WFFE), Warwick Anti-Racism Society (WARSoc), and a number of other societies. As of 1pm today, 127 people had expressed they would be attending the event and 299 were interested. The event had been shared 51 times.

ANNE MARIE WATERS ON EDUCATION

” The national curriculum has to change and change drastically. Instead of telling how children how wonderful Islam is, why don’t we tell them how wonderful Britain is? Why don’t we teach children the value of free speech, of liberty, of democracy, and of critical thinking and objective truth? If we are to build a society of intelligence, justice, and freedom, that is exactly what we must do.
For Britain’s education policy is clear and concise – we want British children to be taught how to think, not what to think. Schooling should prepare children for a life of productive self-sufficiency and instil respect for their society, for themselves, and for each other. We want a thinking country, not a nation of zombies. If you want this too, you can vote for it. ”

BRITISH ARMY SUBMIT TO ISLAM

 

A few days ago Tommy Robinson was photographed in the company of some very young british soldiers who wanted a few ‘selfies’ with him. It was obvious from the video of the event that this had nothing to do with politics but was simple a case of some 16 year olds wanting a photo with a celebrity but following a complaint by the Muslim Council of Great Britain the army authorities came out with a statement condemning ‘extremism’ and ‘hatred’ etc etc.  They condemned Robinson as a far right figure and said there was no place in the army for anyone who shared his views. A few days later this video appeared on YouTube and it is certain that this Sergeant Major would not have put this video out without the permission , if not the blessing , of his superiors.

The message to clear – Anyone who speaks out against Islam is the enemy. Anyone who speaks out against the new world order of open borders and hate speech laws is the enemy. Who  is going to protect the people from dhimmi soldiers like this ? This man sees  people like Tommy Robinson ( and presumable the For Britain Party ) as the enemy. He has been well trained and brainwashed by his Muslim masters…….There can be no more pretence or denial – Britain is at war and the state , the police force and now the army are the enemy of the people. This is war and the state has turned on the people and it is time for people to accept and acknowledge this fact and act accordingly…..
