FATHER TED STYLE PROTESTS INTENSIFY AS
GOVERNMENT UP THE ANTE ON THE PEOPLE!
SO WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON IN ACTIVISM AND PROTEST LAND?
The number of protests being held on Saturdays, Sundays, Mondays and every day except the 3 days that the Government is sitting in the Dail i.e. Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays has increased.
This is nothing short of astonishing and it would explain the Government’s increased arrogance towards the people, for the Government know that opposition to it’s dictatorship is now so controlled that it is indistinguishable from what Ted, Jack and Dougal staged outside a Craggy Island cinema during the screening of a soft porn movie.
Headless chicken style marches on Saturdays and even on Sundays, between the Garden Of Remembrance, the GPO, the Central Bank and Leinster House is now the norm as it pertains to protest in Ireland. It would appear that the controlled opposition, which has been lying dormant within the controlled opposition, has finally taken control of the anti austerity and anti government movement.
The people of Ireland are being badly served by those who have taken control of these protests. The numbers attending anti water charge protests are already dwindling and the fact that those leading these movements are on election footing should sound alarm bells for anyone who claims to be a protester.
Many good ideas have surfaced in relation to the genre of protest required. Many good people have stepped up to the mark. But alas, such people and their ideas have been swiftly silenced, publicly discredited, neutered and negated by so called fellow activists.
If we were the Government, we would be throwing regular parties in celebration at the deliberate infiltration and destruction of the protest movement from within.
Fighting Irish our ass!!!!!
