    Delighted there were only 9 of the Anti-Islam protestors. Well done to everyone who turned up on the counter protest

      They weren’t protesters. Illiterate scumbags is all they are who hide behind masks. Not very big or brave are they.

      Ironically, the only people wearing scarves on their faces were the anti-Islam thugs. Is there somewhere we can send them?

    el cid the 60s epic with Charlton Heston has a subtle political message. It’s not anti islamic at all. if any of you have 3 hours to watch it you should. I find it extremely offensive to see those eejits holding a tricolour. the republic is inclusive not exclusive. an Irish citizen is in an Egyptian jail and his magnificent sisters are fighting a lonely battle calling for his release that is irish republicanism 2015 not these intolerant ignorami!

      These guys protesting against the right to be Muslim and Irish are disgraceful idiots who undermine the values of our republic. That lad in an Egypt who tore up his Irish passport and supports the theocracy of Muslim Brotherhood is also an idiot that undermines the values of our republic. It works both ways….

        “That lad in an Egypt who tore up his Irish passport and supports the theocracy of Muslim Brotherhood is also an idiot”

        Apart from the Egyptian authorities, who says he did that?

        1. Odis

          Don’t know about the tearing up of his Irish passport.
          But as far as supporting the theocracy of Muslim Brotherhood. That’s pretty much the empirical case. Seemingly, his father, who is big in the Muslim Brotherhood, sent him out as a proxy, presumably to avoid his own arrest by the Egyptian authorities.
          The notion that “B” proposes, above, that supporting one particular brand of Sunni sect extremism over another, or indeed over a secular Egyptian state, is somehow related to “Irish Republicanism 2015”, should be treated with the contempt this rubbish deserves.

    Hey look Joan
    There’s a lad there with a fancy looking phone

    You better get onto it so you have more filler for Minister’s questions

      1. Anti-Frilly Keane

        Idiocy away all you like Mister

        I’m too busy being preposterous with preposterously preposterousity

        I’ve loads on

    Despite so many attempts by the do-gooder-chin strokers to depict us as racists, this indicates once again why Ireland is one of the most tolerant countries in the world. No wonder other countries visit to see how we successfully handled such a radical shift in our demographic make-up in such a short time. Our systems may be flawed, as they are relatively new to us, but the people are great. Céad mile fáilte agus shalom.

      1. Bluebeard

        Nope. Just talking wooly crap about their ‘concern’ and ‘racism rearing its ugly head’ especially before budget time so they can get their grants.

    1. Joe the Lion

      that’s a bit of a leap – mindless self-brainwashing and stereotyping

      we have racists, Maries and Larries (and now even fairies that want to marry! Fancy!) like everywhere else

    2. Bluebeard

      I see none of you are actually disputing my point. Too busy finding something to give out about. And yes, we will be in the first 18 countries in the world to allow fairies marry fairies. That just vindicates what I’m saying. We are a much better country than the haters would have us believe. Then again, their think tank/task force/quango depends on finding problems to justify the money wasted on them.

      1. Sham Bob

        Are you insulted by the existence of anti-racism groups, because it suggests that there may be racism in Ireland? Is that insulting because you know that there’s not, or because you think that whatever racism is there is at an acceptable level.

        1. Bluebeard

          I just don’t like a bunch of liberal hairy heads sitting around telling me what an awful racist country I live in while I look around me and the world and see that its blatantly not true. A certain number of people will always be racist, thats just the bell curve. I prefer concentrating and celebrating the overwhelming majority who are not and encouraging them to promote their views. OK?

          1. Lorcan Nagle

            Maybe you should look at what is being said, instead of what you believe is being said.

            Ireland does have a rascism problem. That does not mean everyone is a rascist, nor does it mean the people who are rascist are some sort of stereotypical KKK thug. Rascism can be expressed in many subtle ways, which are far harder to combat than overt displays of violence.

          2. Bluebeard

            So Im just not looking hard enough is it? You’re right. Im too busy celebrating diversity and increasing it. You’ll get what you look for Lorcan.

      2. Joe the Lion

        I see you’re getting up on the oul self-aggrandising soapbox again.

        Will ye ever whist with that vapid bunkum?

        We established last week that in terms of marriage equality we’re on a par with Saudi Arabia.

        This vote has not been passed yet and I for one would not be at all surprised if it fails in spite of your stellar and unflagging support.

        1. Bluebeard

          You poor thing. Living in a country you hate surrounded by people you hate. Homophobes and racists everywhere. The referendum will be lost because of people like you driving away the middle ground instead of attracting them. When you stop hating yourself so much, you’ll find that the world seems a nicer place. Good luck with it.

          By the way, we are on a par with Germany and France.

          By the way, in terms of marriage equality we are on a par with Germany, France and 170 other countries. Its how you look at things.

    1. Odis

      No I don’t approve – but why exactly do you think we “should name an shame these knuckle heads.?

  5. Ms Piggy

    according to the RTE news report last night, the anti-Islam protesters ‘requested the Guards to accompany them’ when they left the protest. Presumably because their Mammies weren’t there to walk them home :-)

  6. fluffybiscuits

    Irish Voice (who were threatening a friend of mine on facebook with splashing his personal details around) have said they are recording names of people etc. So much so they have made themselves now a private group on facebook. These bigoted cretins should be exposed for who they are…fu**in islamaphobes

    “Whats that now, Should we all be fascists now father ! Whats the official line of the church?”

    Knobs!, and worse to even entertain them with an Anti- Anti- Islamic Protest… hold on this is getting silly…

    1. Formerly known as @ireland.com

      I was going to say that. I would have avoided the whole red and black thing. A few pastel colours might be more suitable.

  8. Dubloony

    There were only 9 protesters vs about 80 ant-racism protesters.
    I guess the Belfast contingent couldn’t make it.

    1. smoothlikemurphys

      They mustn’t have been swayed by the ‘day out for the family’ and the ‘few drinks afterwards’ that was on offer!

      1. edalicious

        I don’t know, it looks pretty cheap and brand new for self-styled patriots. You think they’d have already owned a decent flag if they were so patriotic.
