(This looks a lot more ANTIFA than it does freedom protests)
The following is Global News. Take with all the salt your blood pressure will allow.
C. offers an explanation: The rioters are protestant loyalist unionists, and they’re rioting over Irish sea border rules after Brexit.
If ever there was a reason to recite that exhausted poem about the Nazis, coming for us all, its now. While I have a lot of uncertainties about Britain First, and some of our readers have deep objections to them, as a liberal I cannot allow the arrest of Britain First’s most public figure for giving an unacceptable speech in Dublin go unreported.
Please watch that. Listen to her description of the line of questioning. The UK is totalitarian for all but the elite. Looking for her speech now, ill post it as soon as I can find it.
As an ‘unrelated’ reminder, The Gulag Archipelago is on sale at Audible as an audio book for under $4.00. Really strongly recommend reading/listening to it. Not that the chapters on arrests have anything to do with these two videos or the destruction of basic individual rights or anything.
Interestingly that title doesn’t appear to be available at Audible in the UK. I wonder why?
This may be her speech for which she was arrested:
The operative, a Syrian in his thirties with a close-cropped black beard, said ISIS is sending covert fighters to Europe — as did two smugglers who said they have helped. He smuggles them from Turkey in small groups, he said, hidden in cargo ships filled with hundreds of refugees. He said the fighters intend to fulfill ISIS’s threat to stage attacks in the West. He views this as retaliation for U.S.-led airstrikes against the group that began in Iraq last summer and Syria last fall. “If someone attacks me,” he said, speaking with BuzzFeed News on condition of anonymity, “then for sure I will attack them back.”
On reports of pro-Islamic slogans being shouted by the attacker, Mr Campbell said: “Comments made by the suspect at the scene will form part of the investigation.”
Mr Campbell said a flat in India Street had also been cordoned off.
“It appears there has been some sort of altercation, possibly in that flat, which has then spilled out onto the street and ended up with the murder on Botanic Avenue,” he said.
The relatives of four Irish siblings who were trapped in a besieged Egyptian mosque have said they feared for their safety.

Omaima Halawa, 21, her sisters Somaia, 27, and Fatima, 23, as well as their younger brother Ibrihim, 17, were among hundreds of people forced to leave the Al Fateh mosque in Cairo by Egyptian security forces.
It would seem that the Obama admin has been secretly training Syrian ‘Rebels’ with anti tank etc. weaponry since 2012

The six-acre site in Clongriffin will be able to cater for up to 3,000 Muslims during festivals.
One condition of the planning permission is that there is no call to prayer audible outside the complex.
The development will consist of a three-storey domed mosque with minarets, a conference centre, primary and secondary schools and fitness centre with swimming pool.
Check out this newspaper article from the Irish Sun:
It refers to the gardai, an Irish police force, who are looking for the makers of this video:
The article goes on to say:
The “nationalist” nuts are anti-Muslim, anti-Jew, anti-gay and want to end all immigration into Ireland.
without so much as offering any evidence whatsoever that this is the case, and more importantly, without explaining why any of that is a matter for the police.
Clearly now one’s feelings about ethnic groups and actual government policy such as immigration is a crime in Ireland of such magnitude that it can be stated that police need to be involved without so much as an explanation or evidence.
Also, speaking in terms of very general trends, I notice that what people now commonly refer to as ‘right wing newspapers’ such as Canada’s Sun chain or canada’s National Post, allow comments to appear immediately as posted and if something is way over the top, incites violence or breaks laws then it is removed. Left wing papers and Muslim ones tend to check all posts before approving them lest they interfere with the narrative.
This paper seems no exception as I posted 2 comments, both of which as of the time of writing have been held for moderation despite using their own sign in procedure using face book.
So I shall paste those comments here now. It will be interesting to see if they ever appear over at the Irish Sun.
1. Burning a Koran is no more racist than burning a copy of Mien Kampf or burning a copy of Marx’s communist manifesto. Islam is not a race it is a hate fueled ideology of political domination. Burning a Koran is merely a cheap device to bring attention to that fact.
Muslims en masse committing acts of violence in response to anyone showing contempt or even questioning their dogma and symbols is mere proof of what I say. If it was benign then they would argue against opponents or, as the Catholic church does, ignore it as the democratic right of all people.
People who claim that Islam is a race and opposition to it or its dogma is racist have eaten the most dangerous kind of pudding and drank the most leftist kind of misleading Kool-aid available. It will result in real racism as people grow weary of that weapon being wielded at every convenience irrespective of biological reality.
“The revolution will not be complete until the language is perfected” George Orwell 1984
2. I should also mention that this article is in serious error. The video depicting (accurately) the life of Islam’s founder, Mohamed did NOT go viral until AFTER the protests started. In fact it had less than 200 views before Sept 11 2012 when Muslims started the riots and claimed it was the cause.
“Being “historically the prominent enemies of the Jews”, Mr Gadahn said, Catholics offered “fertile ground””.

OSAMA bin Laden was urged by a fellow leading al-Qa’ida member to send a message to the Irish people to urge them to convert to Islam.
Adam Gadahn, al-Qa’ida’s American-born spin doctor, proposed an ambitious new front in the global jihad in January of last year.
He called for the group to “prepare a message for the Irish” who he said tended to be sympathetic to the cause of the Palestinians.
He also noted “the increasing anger in Ireland towards the Catholic Church” after “sex scandals and others” and urged the group to persuade the disenchanted to turn to Islam rather than secularism.
Being “historically the prominent enemies of the Jews”, Mr Gadahn said, Catholics offered “fertile ground”.
Ibrahim Michael Noonan from Co Waterford, who is the first Irish man to become an Imam, told the Irish Independent last night he had become aware of a small, militant element of Islam creeping into the country and called for increased vigilance.
“I have become aware in the last year or so of a radical wing of Islam converting young Irish men who have become disenchanted with Irish society.
Couple the clampdown on free speech in which only the views from one side of the debate are ever heard, and the complete brainwashing of society with that one sided view, and you’ll have an Ireland completely at odds with Jewish self determination and the right to defend itself.
Here’s a film maker who has chosen to walk a lonely path in Ireland’s artist community, due to his awakening to the truth behind the Arabs’ conflict with Israel, which speaks greatly of his courage and moral compass. He’s been confronted with a reality that runs counter to the one carefully prepared for him by his peers and society at large.
Nicky Larkin not only challenges himself, but his countrymen as well, by sharing this completely different Irish perspective on the conflict. It’s a perspective rarely discussed in Ireland, let alone mulled over, which speaks greatly of the vice-grip hold anti-Israel forces have on that society. Larkin’s efforts offer a ray of hope that rational and reasonable debate on the conflict is indeed possible in Ireland, lets hope that his colleagues take up the challenge.

Nicky Larkin: Israel is a refuge, but a refuge under siege
Through making a film about the Israeli-Arab conflict, artist Nicky Larkin found his allegiances swaying
I used to hate Israel. I used to think the Left was always right. Not any more. Now I loathe Palestinian terrorists. Now I see why Israel has to be hard. Now I see the Left can be Right — as in right-wing. So why did I change my mind so completely?
Strangely, it began with my anger at Israel’s incursion into Gaza in December 2008 which left over 1,200 Palestinians dead, compared to only 13 Israelis. I was so angered by this massacre I posed in the striped scarf of the Palestinian Liberation Organisation for an art show catalogue.
Shortly after posing in that PLO scarf, I applied for funding from the Irish Arts Council to make a film in Israel and Palestine. I wanted to talk to these soldiers, to challenge their actions — and challenge the Israeli citizens who supported them.
I spent seven weeks in the area, dividing my time evenly between Israel and the West Bank. I started in Israel. The locals were suspicious. We were Irish — from a country which is one of Israel’s chief critics — and we were filmmakers. We were the enemy.

A Turkish youth is expected to be formally charged with the double murder of two Irish women in western Turkey on Thursday night.
Marion Graham and Kathy Dinsmore were found stabbed to death in a wooded area off a road near the port city of Izmir.
The dead women were both 54 years old and from the Newry area of Co Down. Both were travelling on Irish passports.
The killings followed Ms Graham’s attempts to prevent her daughter Shannon from marrying a 17-year-old youth she had met in the country.
The youth was detained by police yesterday, and is the only suspect for the double murder. His father and a local taxi driver were also helping police with their inquiries.
The suspect yesterday appeared at a preliminary hearing in Turkey and charges are expected to follow. A spokeswoman for Department of Foreign Affairs said today no plans have yet been made as to when the bodies of the two women will be brought home. Continue Reading →
VIOLENCE IN CITY: Rampage in Temple Bar area
Thursday July 07 2011
A MOB went on a wave of random race violence on Temple Bar, which left five Dubliners with horrific injuries.
One man — a Dublin DJ — was almost killed in the attack as he suffered serious head injuries when he was set upon by the gang.
The level of violence has shocked gardai and the many witnesses to the race hate orgy — believed to be the first of its kind in the city.
One member of the African gang was arrested today in pre-dawn raids by detectives across the capital.
Five Dubliners, all aged in their 20s, were left with horrific injuries in the October 2010 attacks, which have only come to light now.
The gang — all aged in their late teens — savagely attacked six Irish people in the Temple Bar area of the capital in the early hours of October 10 last.
The gang, who are heavily involved in other street robberies and beatings, are all expected to appear in court.
Sources say that even seasoned detectives were left “horrified and shocked” by the extreme level of violence used in the attacks which occurred in the Eustace Street and Curved Street areas of Temple Bar at around 3.30am on the date in question.
A senior source explained: “We believe that what happened on the night was motivated by racism — that is racism against white people.
Here are a couple of items on the likely collapse of the Euro and the EU. The upside, its likely short term pain for long term gain, while the continued existence of the Eurozone as it is, long term pain, loss of freedoms and increased totalitarianism to manage impossible Soviet style economic planning.
Banks that sold insurance on the debt of Allied Irish Banks will have to pay out to investors in the nationalised lender’s debt despite complex legal manoeuvres by the Irish authorities to avoid putting the lender into default.
While the Allied decision was in line with market expectations and covers only a relatively small number of bonds, it sets a precedent for upcoming decisions on Bank of Ireland debt. Photo: Oli Scarff
