“ANTI RACISM” IN IRELAND

Roosky is a very small town in Ireland which , like many other small towns in Ireland has had it’s local hotel turned into an asylum centre for ‘refugees’. In Roosky the hotel /asylum centre has been the subject of two arson attacks by persons unknown which has not gone unnoticed by Irish ‘anti racists’. Grand Torino , an Irish Alt Media Youtube channel went down to Roosky to film these fine people in action ……….

MIGRATION PROTEST OUTSIDE IRISH PARLIMENT : IREXIT FREEDOM PARTY

The Irexit Freedom Party and supporters held a Vigil this evening outside the Dail against government plans to sign Ireland up to the Controversial UN Migration Pact later this month which requires countries to give illegal migrants the same entitlements as legal migrants and also requires governments to fund Media outlets and training for Journalists who will promote and propagandize the issue of Migration in a positive light to their citizens while punishing any media that is critical of immigration.irexit-vigil-dail-against-un-migration-pact

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.

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.

BLACK IRISH FAR RIGHT RACIST BIGOT FOR PRESIDENT ?

No one in the Irish media has called Kevin Sharkey a racist bigot – yet.  He is currently   seeking a nomination as a candidate in the upcoming Irish presidential elections later this year and while the media don’t like him or what he says , and are becoming more hostile and critical towards him , they don’t have the moral courage to actually say what they think of him.  The original of this video and many other excellent videos related to Ireland and immigration and Donald Trump can be seen on the Orlared Youtube site.

TRANSPORT COMPANIES UNITE TO TACKLE RACISM

Dublin Bus, Iarnród Éireann, Bus Éireann, Transdev, Local Link bus services and the taxi industry are uniting today to launch a campaign to challenge racism on public transport. Coordinated by the Immigrant Council of Ireland in partnership with Transport for Ireland and Dublin City Council, it is the biggest anti-racism campaign of its kind in Europe with over one thousand posters displayed during a two week period.

Brian Killoran, CEO of the Immigrant Council of Ireland, said, “The Immigrant Council is proud to link up with national transport agencies to promote a message of solidarity and zero tolerance towards racism. The public transport system is the perfect partner as it both serves and represents the cultural diversity in Ireland. To read full report visit the Transport Authority website.

I was sitting in my kitchen this morning having a cup of coffee when this issue was raised on Newstalk FM radio.  The female presenter gave a brief general introduction and then proceeded to introduce her guest …. Dr. Ali Selim , the spokesperson for the Clonskeagh Mosque in Dublin . I have heard Dr. Selim speak before on radio here in Ireland.  I have heard him on Newstalk FM and on RTE , the state broadcaster – in fact I have heard him interviewed no less than three times on which occasions he has openly stated that he believed in the death penalty for homosexuals and the stoning of women for adultery etc.  Dr. Selim is very forthright and perversely honest in his views and when on one occasion he was asked if all the thousands of gays living in Ireland would be put to death in his hoped for Muslim Ireland ,  he reassured his host by explaining that there would be no need to kill all the gays in Ireland as the law would act as an effective deterrent.

Dr. Selim is a respected figure in Ireland. He is educated and articulate and often in the public eye ……………. He has never been called homophobic or indeed even intolerant. He is , as I have stated , a respected figure and , of course , he was treated as such during his stint on Newstalk FM when he made the point that Ireland was in need of hate speech laws to protect people from those who wished to spread hatred and division………… I feel I must pause here for a moment just to assure you that this is not a comedy script and that I’m not just making all this up as I go along.  – No , this is real life here in multicultural and inclusive Ireland.  Dr. Selim expressed concern at the rise of the ‘far right’ in Europe and was worried that this might embolden ‘far right’ individuals here in Ireland. Needless to say , the female presenter was equally concerned with the rise in ‘far right ‘ hatred and intolerance and obviously agreed with Dr. Selim that ever more hate speech legislation was required.  She was also deeply concerned with the growing racism on public transport as were the legions of Irish radio listeners who could not wait untill the end of the broadcast to signal their virtue and their fidelity to the new inclusive , tolerant and diverse Ireland.

At no point did anyone mention the trivial matter of Dr. Selims advocacy of the death penalty  for homosexuality much less  the stoning of women ( and apostates )……..nor was there any consideration given to the fact that hate speech laws would , of course , have the effect of criminalising anyone who tried to discuss Dr. Selims pathological hatred of gays , jews and women…  This is the state of things here in Ireland……. and it is getting worse by the day.   Anne Marie , we need you back here in Ireland and we need you now.

IRISH DON’T WANT MUSLIM IMMIGRATION

A recent ESRI report shows that Irish people have a very negative view of muslim immigration – the worst in Europe in fact.  In spite of this there is no anti immigration party in Ireland and no protest movement either. There is no Irish Tommy Robinson or Anne Marie Waters. Needless to say the media , those involved in the arts , pop stars and just about everyone with a public voice think mass immigration is the best thing since sliced bread. In recent times Irish people have voted for gay marriage and abortion just to show how inclusive , tolerant and diverse they are – they are in love with the idea of Ireland as multicultural society or so it seems but the ESRI report revealed that while 58% of those surveyed showed support for immigrants of the same ethnic group as the majority population in Ireland,  only 41% supported  Muslim immigration and 25% supported  Roma migration.  The devil , as usual, is in the detail and as immigration , and especially muslim immigration increases , people are privately becoming more and more  concerned.

 

POPULATION PROJECTIONS: IRISH CENTRAL STATISTICS OFFICE.

The Central Statistics Office (CSO) has today (20 June 2018) released the Population and Labour Force Projections 2017-2051 report. Commenting on the report, James Hegarty Statistician said: “Ireland’s population, which stood at 4.74 million in April 2016, is projected to reach 6.69 million in 2051 (a rise of just under two million persons) if there is high net inward migration and high fertility. Even with low net inward migration and declining fertility, Ireland’s population is still expected to reach 5.58 million in 2051.”
The report presents six population projections under contrasting scenarios for each year from 2017 to 2051 and three labour force projections are presented up to 2031. Mr. Hegarty explained. “The report is not an attempt to predict the future but rather presents how the population could evolve under different scenarios. By making assumptions about future trends in mortality, migration and fertility, we can project the population forward and examine the possible outcomes for demographic groups such as the school-going population, the working-age population and the elderly.”

Primary school-going population (ages 5 – 12) set to decrease from the year 2021 to 2031
The number of primary school-aged children is projected to increase from its 2016 level of 548,100 to between 555,500 and 562,000 by 2021. Thereafter, the number of primary school pupils is expected to fall to between 510,900 and 457,600 by 2031. This represents decreases of between 6.8% and 16.5% on the 2016 figure of 548,100. In 2051, there will be between 453,900 and 607,600 primary school-aged children, depending on the scenario chosen.

Children of secondary school age (13 – 18) set to increase to the year 2026
The secondary school-aged population is projected to increase by between 67,300 and 75,700 persons by 2026 depending on the assumption used, equating to increases of between 18.2% and 20.5% on the 2016 level of 369,900 persons. By 2051, there will be between 330,300 and 439,600 secondary school-aged children.

Substantial rises in the older population
The CSO publication reveals that, irrespective of the combination of assumptions used, there will be between 1.5 and 1.6 million persons aged 65 years and over by 2051, compared with 629,800 in 2016. Therefore, while around 13.3% of the population was aged 65 years and older in 2016, this will rise to between 23.9% and 27.4% in 2051.

The number of persons aged 80 years and over is projected to rise from 147,800 in 2016 to between 535,900 (+262.6%) and 549,000 (+271.4%) in 2051, depending on the scenario chosen.

Labour force growth set to continue
Assuming net inward migration of 10,000 people annually (M3), the labour force is expected to grow from 2,338,600 persons in 2016 to 2,628,700 in 2031, or a rise of 12.4% over the period.
With the more optimistic M2 scenario there is a rise of 397,800 (+17.0%) to a labour force of 2,736,400 persons in 2031 while the most optimistic scenario M1 has a rise of just over half a million (504,300 persons or +21.6%) to 2,842,900. These equate to annual labour force increases of approximately 33,600 under M1, some 26,500 under M2 and 19,300 persons under M3.
Mr. Hegarty concluded: “The CSO are assisted in this work by an Expert Group consisting of representatives of government departments, as well as the universities and other relevant bodies, and we would like to put on record our appreciation for their time on this work”.
Editor’s Note:
The following is a summary of the assumptions underlying the projections:
The high fertility assumption (F1) envisages the Total Fertility Rate (TFR), remaining at the 2016 level of 1.8 for the lifetime of the projections. The low assumption (F2) would see a decline in the TFR from its current level of 1.8 to 1.6 by 2031, remaining constant thereafter.
Life expectancy is assumed to increase from 2015 levels of 79.3 years for males to 85.6 years by 2051. The corresponding figures for females are 83.3 and 88.3 years.
The high migration scenario (M1) assumes annual net immigration of 30,000 over the projection period. Migration scenario (M2) assumes a more modest net inflow of 20,000 per annum to 2051. The third scenario (M3) assumes net inward migration of 10,000 for the entire period.
The labour force participation rates of males will recover to 2006 rates and there will be increases in the labour force participation rates of older males. The labour force participation rates of married and unmarried females will continue to converge while there will also be increases in the labour force participation rates of older females.
