Martin Kenny - Views of Older People "isn't relevant to new Ireland"
Speaking to Fiach Kelly and Harry McGee of the Irish Times , Martin Kenny , Sinn Fein TD for Sligo/Leitrim says older people's views are not 'relevant to the new Ireland' , we have to be 'inclusive and tolerant' .

He explains :  

In the debate around Marriage Equality and the 8th amendment it was young people that convinced their parents and their grandparents and their uncles and aunts and older people that you know the views you learned when you went to school in the 60s and 70s isn't relevant to the new Ireland and we have to look at a different place and be inclusive and be tolerant .

   


Kenny's speech raises a number of concerns about the kind of society we will live in under sinn fein .

Society should be  "inclusive and tolerant" yet exclude the views of many people because of their age . Some might call that age discrimination . 

What about the republican tradition . If the views of Older people are no longer relevant under sinn fein how can they pass down the republican tradition to their children . Indeed , would we even have the 26 Counties back .

In relation to abortion which began in communist Russia in the 1920s followed by Communist North Korea in the 1950s , probably two of the most backward and barbaric regimes in history . Should we proud to have it in Ireland . How does it make us a new Ireland , tolerant or inclusive when its an ancient practice which 'excludes' an innocent human being from ever entering the world . 

Finally , in relation to tolerance , Is being tolerant turning a blind eye to Facts , the fact being that top 5 Countries of Origin for asylum seekers entering Ireland are SAFE Countries . Albania , Georgia , Zimbabwe , Nigeria and South Africa  . We will spend 120 million this year on accommodation for these people while our own homeless freeze to death or are beaten to death like that poor man in Cork . Is that being 'inclusive' and 'tolerant' . 

Is this really the kind of New Ireland any of us want to live in  .

Martin Kenny " tell your parents that they are not Relevant today in Ireland" go on...and realize that adopting your warped ideology that your children will pass the same judgement on you...your a Traittorous Sellout Puppet of Ireland and its People

to think I used to respect sinn fein until i realised their goal is to reunite Ireland under EU rule . the party held a joint meeting recently with EU officials to make sure EU rule prevails in northern Ireland . crazy

very sorry to hear him say this . He might be old some day himself !!!

Great article! and very much deserving of our attention.

Thanks Charlie

TD Martin Kenny IS CORRECT!
Older people DO NOT COUNT!

NOT because they have nothing to say OR nothing to contribute, BUT BECAUSE (as all our political parties KNOW) THEY, the older generation are the keepers of the faith, history, knowledge and above all, MORALS!.
This is something the political parties HAVE TO destroy at all costs, the link between the youth and the older generation, for if the younger generation were to take note of their elders, they MIGHT just change their opinion of this so called new Irish society being constructed by GREED, HEDONISTIC DESIRE and frankly SPEAKING, IMMORALITY.

Throughout the history of Mankind the VERY THING that kept society solid, Moral and just, was and has always been it's ELDERS!. NO tribal system can be destroyed, and No tribe is weaker than when it's Elders are absent. This is scientific FACT, NOT my feelings, wishes or wants, Just Fact!.

Since the 1980's in the West the political establishments of almost every country has done their collective very best, to remove the Elder system from our cities, counties and countries. This is and was done in the name of progression, our youth were told then that this was the first steps towards absolute freedom.

In Ireland there is still a link between our Elders and our Youth, sadly it has now become a very tenuous link, fragile and ever weakening, But nevertheless still obviously viewed as a threat by our political masters. To further weaken this important social link, politicians like Mr. Kenny must do all he can to make our Elders less and less important in the minds of our youth and HIS statement above is designed and presented to the press for this very reason.

ha ha martin , the views of sinn fein aren't relevant to the 'new new' Ireland , the one after this new Ireland .
^
SF want to unite Ireland under Brussels rule . swap one empire for another . Maybe they should have listened to some of their older members who are getting out before the ship sinks .

If these people in labour like communism so much why dont they go live in North Korea ?? why do they want to bring north korea to Ireland . the first thing to go in a communist regime is your ability to change your government , the next is your right to disagree with them , the next is your standard of living , everyone ends up in poverty while their government get rich
