The Racism and White Privilege Of The Irish People
Leo speaks of racist Irish, Statues and Nazi U-boats
The Racism and White Privilege Of The Irish People

Recently among our political class and even more recently again among the general public, the subject of discussion has been that of Irish historical and cultural racism.
 

In fact, I had the displeasure of over hearing a conversation only a weeks ago, while attending my local hospital, which took place between two foreign women.   I have no idea where these women came from originally.  But I was both surprised and frankly insulted to hear the conversation.   It started with one of the young women speaking about the Taoiseach (Irish PM.),  saying to the other woman that Leo Varadkar had brought up the subject of historical racism in Ireland and that at some point in the near future, there was to be a lengthy debate in the Dail about this very subject.
 

That evening on arrival home, I have to admit to feeling so unwell that the very last thing on my mind then and for 2 or 3 days later,  was Leo Varadkar and Ireland’ alleged historical or cultural racism.   I had the full intention of asking my friend and neighbour for her opinion and also if she had heard about the alleged comment/s, made by the Taoiseach.  But I was so out of it, after the procedure that we actually had little or no conversation on the journey home in her car.
 

Anyway,  jump forward three days,   I woke early in the morning and the first thing to enter my mind (apart from a deep desire for strong Coffee)  was the part conversation between the two women about racism and the alleged comment/s made by the Taoiseach.  So after several generous sips of coffee, I powered on my very aged laptop and waited for it to come to life,  in order to search out said comments on Irish racism.
 


Comments of alleged racism made by the Taoiseach (Irish PM)
 
I came across an article in The Irish Mirror   which stated that
Ireland has a racism problem and some statues of racist figures may need to be removed,  Taoiseach Leo Varadkar has said.
 

In recent days, statues of people linked to the slave trade have been taken down around the world Mr Varadkar said a statue of Sean Russell, an Irish republican who fought in the 1916 Rising and was a leader during the War of Independence,  may need to be removed.  Russell's legacy is controversial as he died in 1940 on a German U-boat after travelling to Nazi Germany in an effort to secure support for the IRA's efforts to overthrow the Free State and reunite Ireland.

"We have a few of our own statues we may need to take down. There is a statue in Fairview Park in Dublin of an Irish republican man who was also a Nazi collaborator... I think any statues that come down should come down legally... let's not engage in violence." Mr Varadkar said as a mixed race person growing up in Ireland, he has experienced racism. -  "It is not something I speak about too much but it has not held me back - it has probably pushed me on. I have had a lot of privileges that have helped to counteract that." "It does worry me that young people of colour who grew up in Ireland are being treated as though they are not fully Irish."
 
Mr Varadkar said the Black Lives Matter Movement is similar to the Me Too campaign. "People are no longer ashamed to talk about their experience of racism and to shame the racists and it is almost like a switch has gone on for a lot of people." He said Ireland needs to bring in new laws around hate speech to combat racism. "It is not easy to do as you don't want to shut down freedom of speech but we need an anti-racism campaign and to raise awareness about it," he said.

Asked on RTE 2FM (Ireland’s National broadcaster) if Ireland has a racism problem, he said: "I think we do. Every country in the world has racism to some degree. "Thankfully we do not have the kind of problems with police brutality that we see in the United States, we have a very professional police force and we're grateful for that. "If you look at the Traveller community and how they are treated and spoke about - that's a form of racism. "Anyone who grew up in Ireland mixed race like me would be aware of the fact that when you look and sound different - people treat you differently and it is not nice."


SORRY, I DO NOT BUY IT ! 
 

In my humble and personal opinion,  the statements made to the Irish Mirror and then later to RTE 2FM.   Are nothing more than Mr. Varadkar shamelessly playing to his Woke audience.  This is OUR P.M. the Irish Taoiseach, playing directly to his audience. The very same audience which he called upon (again on Radio) to descend upon anti - abortion folk holding banners showing the damage done to the fetus, during the abortion debate.


It all boils down to JUST two things:
 
(1).  Gauge the likely reaction of the people,  if statues such as those mentioned in his speech are taken down by the government, thus also appeasing the NGO’s and ANTIFA.
 

(2).  Re-ignite the debate on Freedom of Speech / Anti-Racism and satisfy ongoing demands from the hoard and ever growing number of NGO’S. And so called human rights groups & SJW’s..
 

Oh, and to add further fuel to the fire.  Varadkar said he had role models like Paul McGrath and Phil Lynott growing up and it was important that young people of colour growing up today have similar role models.
He also said the government would consider new laws around hate speech and an anti-racism public awareness campaign in future.
 
Last week in the Dáil, the Taoiseach spoke about the killing of George Floyd in America and said that “we don’t need to look across the Atlantic to find racism”.

I agree completely with Mr Varadkar,  Indeed  “we don’t need to look across the Atlantic to find racism”.   

 

On this first and only occasion,   I am in absolute agreement with the Taoiseach !.  Beyond ALL doubt, Leo Varadkar has repeatedly showed disdain for the people of this country, for the Irish culture and in particular for the very lives of our Elderly!.
 
With almost teenage girl like light headedness, Mr. Varadkar has been more than happy to vilify the people of Ireland, the Catholic Church and it’s faithful followers, in some misguided attempt to seek favour from the less than palatable and over represented NGO sector, the EU & the UN which like the very best of Mob like enterprises keeps it’ friends close and it’ enemies closer still.
 

As head of state Mr. Varadkar has wilfully Neglected the elderly people of this country.  Instead concerning himself with his image among other EU and UN member states.   His comment in the Dáil quoted above goes even further in proving my point, and his failure to curtail (at the very least) if not outright forbid attendance at the BLM protests in Ireland,  which were openly advertised and promoted in the Left leaning press,  again goes to prove outright neglect of the elderly, disabled and the sick in this country!.


Ironically, Mr. Varadkar is happy to salute such protests & protestors which in fact are little more than token gestures for the sake of appearance and the collection of Woke points among community peers.
 
If it were otherwise, then we would have witnessed thousands march in protest at the lack of PPE equipment for our front line hospital staff , Yet there were none!.   Protests heavily attended for the killing of Detective Garda Colin Horkan, yet again there were none!.  Even protests outside care homes where our elderly were left to simply die of Covid-19 on instruction of the Varadkar government ,  Yet there were none!.
 

IF Mr Varadkar shows so little care for the people of the very country he professes to lead, and the so called concerned attendees at the BLM protests, show so little concern for the people of their own country, who may very well lose their lives as a direct result of the protesters disregard for covid-19 restrictions.  Then I suggest that Mr. Varadkar and these protesters show only FALSE concern for their own people, their own Grandparents, their neighbours, their Parents and relatives.
 

As I pointed out above IT ALL BOILS DOWN TO TWO THINGS, and if things don’t appear to be going so well, remember to include some anecdotes of personal hurt feelings, while growing up in Racist Ireland!.  
   Hypocrite! 

Sadly, on the darker side, Varadkar and Co, I suspect have full intentions, of completely satisfying ALL the demands made by the NGO’s last year (2019) and the year before (2018).  Such as defined and restricted areas outside Abortion centres, the establishment of anti Free Speech laws and so on. 
 
I have the absolute feeling in my guts that all this “The Irish are Racist “, “ we need to remove offending statues” talk, will all lead very soon to a state fashioned after 1984.  Where thought and word can and will, be viewed as crimes.

 
The overall goal being Left Wing, Socialist / communist rule in this country, disguised as democracy by virtue of differing party names,  all serving the very same brand of socialism.

Don’t think so?, then answer this, what is the difference between Varadkar lead FG, Martin lead FF, Labour, The Greens, SocDems, SF and PBP ?.     --    Answer : There is absolutely None !

So ready yourself, for elderly ladies being arrested for racist remarks, because the elderly lady gestured by waving at a car in front at a queue for petrol.   And was approached by Police and given an official warning, after being accused by the driver of the vehicle in front of her, of being Racist.
 
Or perhaps the 80 odd year old dear, who was told off by Police in her own home, for simply stating the opinion that a bearded male in a dress is not a woman!.  These are two cases of very many brought against mainy elderly folk in the UK.


The Conclusion  

The conclusion is, I honestly DO NOT know what to conclude from this absolute nonsense. Claims such as made by Mr Varadkar about Irish endemic racism,  are absolute and total justification for what ever he, or Mr. Martin, or whomever is stupid enough to take the reins of this country, as it teeters on the verge of deep recession, IF not all out depression,  might inflict on the nation by way (most likely) of taxation and cuts.
 

May I suggest the following:  ANY country that has been enslaved by it’s nearest neighbour for hundreds of years, imprisoned, lands stolen and in many cases sent in to slavery in the new world (indentured OR otherwise) and up to as recently as the 1980’s,  it’s people considered to be the Blacks of Europe,  by the nations of Europe.

Has not had a history of freedom or free will,  long enough to be either racist of mindset or to have attained ANY so called White Privilege!.

Sadly Ronan,

People like him do not see crimes against white skin folk as crimes!. Ergo he would also not perceive of acts of racism against white folk as racism!..

Which is Ironic when ALL of us here on the tricolour. com would view racism against either BLACK or WHITE, ASIAN or HISPANIC as nothing other than RACISM!

YET his followers would and DO, call all against his hate like views, (US) Nazi, Racist and Bigots.

Hi Ivaus, thank you for your reply.

My opinion is that a huge majority of them are in it only for financial benefit!.

Sadly, the one time power houses of Irish Politics like FF and FG are having their long fought for and at one time cherished principles simply washed away by pure greed!.
Martin has literally put the last nail in the coffin of Fianna Fáil, along with Cowen, now ensuring that the one time Republican, Family & Conservative party of politics will be assigned to the dustbin of history.
Varadkar is no better, the back bone of FG may still be Conservative or at least Young FG. BUT having failed in EVERY post assigned to him except that of henchman who sold out his leader, He also has insured that his party FG will suffer a similar fate.
Thus leaving Ireland with NO Family, Conservative or Republican (politically) party and thus no representation for almost 50% (give or take) of the Irish population!.
Martin instead of feeling Shame, is feeling proud and claiming to have been elected Taoiseach??

and the award for biggest racist of all goes to Richard von Coudenhove-Kalergi , the EU founding father who talks about replacing the peoples of Europe with a "Eurasian-Negroid race" .

Quote from his 1925 book - Practical Idealism

.."Parents and ancestors of farmers usually come from the same, sparsely populated area , the nobles from the same small upper class.

In both cases, the ancestors are mutually related by blood and therefore mostly physically, mentally, spiritually similar.

Consequently, they pass on their common traits and there is a tendency for will, passions, prejudices, inhibitions to occur at heightened levels in their children and descendants.

The traits that result from this inbreeding are loyalty, filial piety, a sense of family, caste, resistance, stubbornness, energy, narrowness , power of prejudice, lack of objectivity, narrowness of the horizon.

Here there is no variation from the previous generation but simply its repetition . conservation takes the place of development

In hybrid families the children differ strongly from each other: each forms a new variation of divergent parental and ancestral elements.

Man will be hybrid in the distant future. Today's races and castes are increasingly falling victim to the fact that space, time and Prejudice are being overcome.

The Eurasian-Negroid race of the future, outwardly similar to the ancient Egyptian, will replace the diversity of peoples with a variety of personalities "

Great point Dublin Lad,

I remember reading the article back last year I think.

Ironically, it's not only racism but the dilution of democracy by virtue of extending the population number. Instead or creating opportunity for all view points and voters by actually governing with consent, and therefore providing opportunity for all. These Fascists believe its better to increase the number of voters and thus the number of votes.. It's actually Nazi race principles reversed!.

the Seán Russell statue was attacked before by Antifa which has had links with sinn fein



would be interesting to see the reaction of Sinn fein to the statues removal

on one hand sinn fein love to play Identity Politics and are so Politically correct , they would be really confused about this one , should it stay or should it go, if we say stay would people think we are Racist . Its sad but Ireland has come down to this , people are so conditioned that everything is decided now in terms of how others might think of it

Hi Charlie,

Ironic don't you think?, that Mr. Varadkar should talk of the removal of the statue as though the Blue Shirts of FG were as pure as driven snow!.

Meanwhile a FG councillor in Dundrum is celebrating (so to speak) the FG - Blue Shirt relationship 😁.

Mr. Varadkar should be made aware that people who live in glass houses must never sling stones!.
^
yes "Nazi Scum" is their favourite slogan , the fact that they helped the Nazis come to power in the 1930s is lost on them
^
Hi Roy, & Thank you.

I have just read Charlie's excellent article. I am however, not surprised!. As I inferred above, racism goes both ways and Mr Varadkar has gone out of his way to show his distain for the Irish People!.

Point of note: I grew up in Crumlin and knew well the family of Phil Lynott and his Mother. Phil NEVER considered Dublin or Ireland or her people, in the way like Mr. Varadkar does!. Even when living in L.A. Phil, when asked were he came from would ALWAYS say "Crumlin", "I am first a Crumlin man, A Dubliner and an Irish Man". Phil came from Little, unlike Mr. Varadkar, Phil literally clawed his way to the top, through Hard Work and pure Bull headedness. He like most kids of the time, had NONE of the benifits or privileges that Mr Varadkar so proudly boasts of!.

You Lun Lan ,

Hope you don't mind me replying to your reply!.

Just picking up on something you mentioned. A very good friend returned to Ireland after being 15 or 16 years in the UK, A successful businessman, He lost his business due to becoming ill with Cancer and during lengthy periods in hospital, one of his partners ripped him off selling everything and leaving him in total ruin. Anyway as the Cancer advanced and the end became closer and closer, his Daughter brought him home to Ireland. When here they sought state assistance for medical equipment and so on. His Daughter went begging ( her description) on his behalf. At one point a welfare officer told her that her Father should get assistance from the Queen!.

Her words to me were, they just didn't want Irish people like her and her Father returning home!.

have through greed and cronyism become the same ffg .
The public purse has been far to generous in salary and
pensions( multiple per ministry ),in truth it was plundered
The Carrot and Myth, that we had to pay grotesque amounts in salary and pensions to attract Qualified People,yes,no wonder the GRAVY TRAIN derailed.In all

Thank you Ivaus,

No argument from me my Friend. At one time the LA Times even commented that the Irish PM (Taoiseach) was paid more than then President Obama!.. Now in all honesty Obama was not worth much, but then neither was the Taoiseach.
PLUS as you point out in the Ireland of greed, these people can actually have 2 or more pensions!, for serving in government alone.

Add to this the fact that Varadkar & Martin are selling out their fellow Country men & women and their history to secure some very high paying jobs in Europe or CEO positions in the Banking industry.

Martin just like Cowen could not give a Fu*k about your kids or grandkids nor mine. It's all about ME, ME, ME!

Hi Dublin Lad, Thank You.

That is reparations for our racism & White Privilege!.

Come on, that is why Varadkar is trying his best to make every white Irishman and Woman feel bad about nothing other than being born white, or I guess really a kinda sickly grey.

Then of course like Mr. Varadkar, they are free to insult, belittle & piss on the heritage of all the pale folk they meet OR attend WOKE / Feminist meetings and tell us to F-OFF & mind our own business.

RACISM !

transgender therapy is much more damaging than conversion therapy . with trans therapy you have bodily mutilation , irreversible medication to stop the natural development of the body and serious side effects from drugs such as puberty blockers . why dont they ban transgender therapy .
