Senator hits out at name-calling tactics used to silence dissenting opinions

Senator Sharon Keogan

Meath Senator Sharon Keogan has hit out at the increased use of labels such as 'far-right', 'racist' and 'xenophobe' for the purpose of silencing dissenting opinions describing it as ... "political and intellectual laziness"  which has "infiltrated irish politics". 

Speaking to the Seanad earlier this week, Ms Keogan explained : 
 
 In 2016 Brexit and the election of Donald Trump upset the ruling elite to such an extent that they changed tactics, no longer would there be individuals, there would only be the labels placed upon them based upon what they supported or choose to support
 

its a cheap trick, its political and intellectual laziness and its a crying shame that this low level of discourse has infiltrated irish politics through social media
 
 
 

While such tactics are relatively new to Ireland, the origins of such can be traced back to the Communist Movement in America.

In 1969 ,  American Documentary Film Producer and Writer - G. Edward Griffin read a passage from the American Communist Directive of 1943 which called on its supporters to .. "constantly associate those who oppose us with those names which already have a bad smell.. the association will after enough repetition become fact in the public mind".

 When certain obstructionists become too irritating, label them as fascist or nazi or anti-semetic and use the prestige of anti-fascist and tolerance organisations 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 repetition become fact in the public mind.

- 1943 American Communist Directive

while kalergi didn't have a racial plan as such, he was a clear racist, he describes caucasion reproduction as "inbreeding" and says the offspring is inferior to hybrid offspring. the man was a racist , a racist who was at the heart of the creation of the european union. who knows there could be many in the EU who still share his views, I mean the EU set aside a record €9.9 billion for Asylum, Migration and Integration (AMIF fund) for the period 2021 - 2027 , a 200% increase
