Ireland's Political Class is Tripling Down: You Are Not Allowed to Say That the Permanent Welfare Case Who Went Into a Stabbing Frenzy in a Nursery is Foreign-Born and Was Due for Deportation in 2003

Below, a journalist (a real one) named John McGirk questions by what authority the media may decide that some facts cannot be reported. Or must even be lied about -- the BBC and other media organizations repeatedly claimed the nursery knife terrorist was not an immigrant, though he was.

Here's the transcript, via David Strom's piece:

Ciara: Your website, John McGuirk, has received a lot of criticism for...

McGuirk: For reporting the news.

Ciara: For choosing to highlight the nationality of the suspect in this knife attack at a moment in time when there's hostilities in the city center. I'm wondering in what way did you feel his nationality had a bearing on this incident.

McGuirk: It was entirely relevant because, as subsequent facts have shown, he was somebody who came here, was granted...was given citizenship after being issued with a deportation order. And has never, according to some [garbled], worked a day in his life. And rather than what happened with Josef Puska*, what happened in Sligo with Yousef Palani**. It is further relevant, I would say...it is fascinating I'm being asked this question because no one is saying the story is untrue. Essentially the story...essentially the position...[interruptions]

Ciara: Is it relevant?

McGuirk: Essentially now the position seems to have gone from we're worried about mis-information and dis-information to where we can no longer report true information or you're whipping up fear.

McGuirk goes on to challenge her, journalist to journalist.

"What power do you have to decide what facts the public should or should nor know?"

She sputters about responsibility and inflaming situations. And McGuirk pins her to the wall.

"If YOU decide they can't handle it, he finishes for her, "You don't give it to them."

That, of course, is the whole point! Actual lies are not very dangerous speech to The Regime. Lies tend to be disbelieved.

But the truth -- that's compelling.

That's what must be ruthlessly censored.

The former mayor of Dublin admits that is the real goal here.

So there it is: the former mayor of Dublin, Hazel Chu, "says the quiet part out loud," telling the fake journalist hosting this program that it is "journalists'" duty to bury some "facts" in order to push a message of "unity."

You're not allowed to report the fact that Muslim immigrants to Europe commit a disproportionately high amount of crime. That's a fact which must be suppressed in the interests of unity.

The Irish government, through its own Stasi the Garda, demanded that social media companies censor "hateful" messages, like people accurately reporting the fact that the knife terrorist is an Algerian migrant who has apparently not worked a single day in his worthless life.

Instagram and FaceBook and TikTok were more than willing to censor the truth.

Twitter/X refused, and so the Irish government is demanding the EU punish X/Twitter and take away its power to "self-govern." Substituting EU bureaucrats' preferred lies over the uncomfortable truth.

By the way, here's the sort of speech the Irish government not only permits, but is itself responsible for: A councilor for Limerick with a non-Irish name called for all the rioters protesting unending mass migration "to be shot in the head."

Fianna Fáil will 'engage' with one of its Limerick Councillors after he suggested people who took part in last week's Dublin riots should be 'shot in the head.'

On Newstalk Breakfast this morning, Fianna Fáil Minister of State Jack Chambers said the comments from Limerick Councillor Abul Kalam Azad Talukder were 'totally inappropriate'.

The Limerick Post reports that Cllr Talukder told a meeting of Limerick City and County Council (LCCC) on Monday that 'not even an animal' would act like the rioters did in Dublin last week.

He said they should face public punishment - noting that they should be "shot in the head" or beaten by the public "until they die".

He immediately withdrew the comments - noting that the words were "only an expression of my emotion".

It seems as though some people in Ireland still have their rights to speak their mind.

It's just not the Irish who have that right.
