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.
