Explosive interview with Love/Hate Star John Connors

Actor and Film Writer John Connors chats with Grand Torino .
 
John is well known for his role as Patrick Ward in the crime drama series Love/Hate and was the writer/actor of the 2017 box office hit film cardboard gangsters .

John Grew up in coolock and ended up living in Darndale but was born in London to an Irish Mother and Father which gave him a keen interest in Irish Culture and History ... "because I was born in England , I became extra Irish in my culture and history , I'm obsessed with it" .
 
John says he suffered depression while living in Darndale and became suicidal , but "found acting as a way out" .

During the abortion referendum , John describes how he was persecuted for his pro life stand even by close friends . He describes how his pro life stand resulted in him being axed from certain roles and had venues cancel him .

I put up a picture saying pro life. The hate I was getting was unbelievable , people I knew who I was friendly with coming after me publicly, then I put it on twitter and again all these z list celebrities quoting me and tweeting me with their little whitty rebuttle , virtue signal cunts , thats all they were , making me out to be the bad guy who has no compassion for a womens right to choose .. Choose What ? they dont like answering that question .
 
I was getting constant hate , I remember one tweet from someone with a repeal top telling me I hope it goes through so traveller children can be aborted . We have the highest level of suicide in the world out of any group , My own father committed suicide and shes coming out with stuff like that . 
 
Good friends of mine attacked me publicly . 10 speaking gigs cancelled around the country . 2 roles I got were cancelled . one of them outside of the country , a huge role , both of them cancelled , that sent me into a few months of depression .
 
 After a few months everything died down , I looked back at that time , at least no matter what , I kept my dignity and pride and stood up for the most vulnerable life on planet earth . I can sleep . There's been a media shutdown for me since . Before that I had journalist begging me for interviews . 
 
This is what I notice about the left in general , they have extreme empathy for subjects until you disagree with them , and they believe in equality until you disagree with them , you disagree with them its hate and apathy , their the exact opposite of what they're meant to represent . 
 

 
  



John describes how he has been subject to public abuse and branded a fascist for agreeing to be interviewed by Grand Torino even by fellow actors like Donal O'Kelly . 

I remember when I said I was coming on to your show , Donal O'Kelly who's an actor and an activist , a man who I would have previously respected . He put out a tweet hitting at me , because I agreed to sit down and talk to you , I'm suddenly a fascist for agreeing to talking to you and actually insulted me as well telling me to check my ego etc .
 
It is frustrating for me to deal with that because I grew up in a culture where there was consequences for your words and you have to stand up and be a man , when you try to smear someone and defame them like that because thats very serious what he was doing to me , you have to stand up and be accounted for and if you dont , your going to found out . thats what happens in my culture , you have to go out the road and box the face of each other and theres nothing wrong with that . I totally love that part of our culture . so its frustrating when you get someone like Donal , With one sweep they are trying to ruin your career , just like the abortion referendum . exact same thing

brilliant interview . Connors should get involved in politics . run for office . excellent speaker .
#
Thank you Grand Torino for a superb,interesting,informative interview with John Connors.He is a MAN, with backbone and integrity,articulate yet down to earth.I wish him well for the future despite the TURNCOATS that tried to scuttle his career,the measly F..ks are still using their SELF-ELITIST INFLUENCE on IRISHMEN to this present day,IRELANDS INDEPENDENCE DAY ANNIVERSARY. ☘💚🇨🇮💚🇨🇮☘🇨🇮💚☘.
At one stage in the interview he touched on a very important point,that STILL has major consequences for IRELAND TODAY. The Nomadic Irish, that was been wiped out of history is happening again today but this time they are TAKING AWAY THE HOME, THE BIRTHPLACE, THE VERY FOUNDATION OF IRISHNESS. So after 101 years of so called independence we will again resume OUR NOMADIC LIFESTYLE, LEGALLY,with the help of a Traitorous Dail,EU,UN.....but have NOWHERE TO CALL HOME?....Makes one wonder what all these scheming conniving runts have been up to FOR ALL THAT TIME OF SO-CALLED INDEPENDENCE...OUT...OUT...OUT...YOUR TIME IS UP....scum!
#
one of GTs best interviews . connors is a real man . not afraid to speak up for the most innocent and vulnerable in society , the unborn child .
#
Didn't know Grand Torino could sing as well . He has a great voice . Have a listen to this . GT for X-Factor .

#
nice to hear connors is voting for Hermann Kelly , I'm voting Hermann Kelly , Gemma O'Doherty Ben Gilroy and Eamonn Murphy.. probably vote Gemma first , then Hermann . So sad to see RTE blanking independent candidates though. shameful
