We’ve seen an explosion in far right movements in Europe and the USA but somehow we’ve managed to prevent this taking root in Ireland. For how long though. The rumblings in Oughterard have given them a cause to latch onto and this is squarely because of a insidiuos and misguided government policy on refugees and immigration. They are wellknown to have close ties to the anti abortion movement too.
Direct Provision is manna from Heaven for the parish pump politics and the likes of Noel Grealish and Peter Casey will prey upon the genuine fears of ordinary people. It is only in such climates of fear and ignorance where the far right prosper. Examples of their attempts to reach up from beneath the cracks can be lodged here. Feel free to explain or defend this movement if you are so inclined
Oughterard was a warning. Next time these guys will be more than ready
