The rise of communism and end of freedom of expression in Ireland

The rise of communism and end of freedom of expression in Ireland
On Saturday 10th of August , a twitter based group called #speakersunicorner run by artist Robert Bohan and LGBT activist Izzy kamikaze (also known as Izzy O'Rourke) held a protest in Dublin demanding that the Google Protesters who are now in their fifth week of protests be removed by Gardai and political parties such as Anti Corruption Ireland , Irexit , national party etc be deplatformed from Irish Society accusing them of "spreading hate on our streets" describing them as "racists" and "fascists"  and called on the Government to take action against them . 
 
In their event Notice circulated on twitter the event organisers write .... "Dublin says no to hate on august 10th . We invite people to gather at irishtown garda station at 2.30pm on saturday august 10th . we intent to vocalise our anger at the Gardai's inaction against the ongoing open incitement to hatred taking place on the streets of dublin . We will demand of the social media companies , headquartered locally , that they end the platforming of the far right white supremacist organisers associated with ACI . We also will call on our government to take effective action and immediately address the willful fuelling of racism and hate by groups like ACI , the national party and Irexit , their rhetoric is already having a dangerous impact in communites around the country" . 
 
As an ordinary person , I cant help but wonder where the hate is . Three Weeks ago , I Joined with Gemma O'Doherty and her supporters outside of google and what I saw were ordinary people
 , playing music , singing and having a good time . They were ordinary people , brothers , sisters , mothers , fathers worried about the future of Ireland , worried about their children's future , worried about freedom of expression in Ireland and the direction we are heading . There was only love , no hate whatsoever .
 
But then suddenly on the day of the "no to hate rally" , as the counter protesters arrive at google armed with mainstream press behind them , supposed gemma supporters who have not been seen before at any of her protests are conveniently filmed making nazi salutes to the cameras as if to justify the accusations against her . The Pictures are spread accross social media to justify their claim and its job done , game over , the public have been persuaded that these people must be evil and the government has the justification it needs to begin the process of removing their right to freedom of expression and assembly . Fine Gael Councillors such as James Geoghegan‏ immediately spring into action and announce a special meeting of city councillors with the Gardai to discuss ways of removing Gemma and supporters from outside of Google .
 
The whole thing stinks of communism and thats exactly what it is .  The American Communist party issued a directive to its members and supporters in 1943 which stated that .. "When certain obstructionists become too irritating, label them, after suitable buildups, as fascist or Nazi or anti-Semitic, and use the prestige of antifascist and tolerance organizations to discredit them . In the public mind constantly associate those who oppose us with those names which already have a bad smell . The association will after enough repeitition, become fact in the public mind .  Members and front organizations must continually embarass , discredit and degrade our critics ". - American Communist party directive 1943

  
Supporting Bohan and Izzy were Trade Unions such as Mandate .
 
Mandate's general secretary John Douglas was an active speaker at Communist Party of Ireland meetings such as the Madge Davison memorial lectures . Madge Davison was a leading member of the Communist Party of Ireland in the 1970s . The Mandate Union also publishes articles from the Communist Party of Ireland on its website .  Also lending their support to Bohan and Izzy were representatives of Fianna Fail, Labour, Sinn Fein, the Social Democrats, Greens, People Before Profit and a number of Independents all pushing for the removal of our fundamental right to freedom of assembly and expression in Ireland .

excellent analysis by the Don on this topic
#
when it comes to the old Sieg Heil salutes I think fine gael need to look closer to home



#
even the GAA are at it now

#
the thing I notice about the neo communists is that they only hold rainbow flags , they hate our national flag for some reason .
#
freedom of peaceful assembly is a fundamental right of bunreacht na hEireann . If they stop gemma , whos next ? very scary times . The EU Commission is pushing all this . Lets not forget that Jose Manuel Barroso who served as President of the EU Commission was a communist . only communists would appoint another communist .
#
or the manifesto of Communist Altiero Spinelli, whose name is over the doorway to the EU Parliament. Merkel laid EU coloured flowers at his tomb. Spinelli wrote of abolishing private property and having a European army to help impose the dictates of the central administration
#
still cant think of a single thing she said thats hateful , have asked her accusers but get no response . they cant name a single thing she said thats hateful yet they are organising rallies against her .
#
we all have a duty to stop communism , defending free speech is one the ways we can do this
#
only matter of time now before we end up like china ,taken away by police for expressing a different opinion to allowed one . Bohan , Izzy and O'leary and people like them have a lot to answer for .
