Meanwhile, In Montrose


This afternoon.

Montrose, Donnybrook, Dublin 4.

Anti-maskers, within close proximity to each other, gather outside RTÉ studios protesting at what they claim is the station’s ongoing ‘one-sided’, ‘government-biased’ and’ ‘fear-mongering’ coverage of the rona.

      Missred, if you know that the virus has never been isolated and if you know that the PCR test cannot test for the virus and should not be used for that purpose – according to the inventor of the PCR test – for which he won a Nobel Prize – you’d realise that the Covid test is a scam. Asymptomatic my ass.

      1. Rosette of Sirius

        This is the kind of horse manure that was fact checked and debunked. The quote to which you refer and falsely attributed to the inventor of the PCR test – Kary Mullis – was taken out of context to falsify its original meaning.

        So. To quote. Go sell crazy somewhere else. We’re all stocked up here.

          1. GiggidyGoo

            Hey Rosette – please indicate a nationality that you would take heed of. In fact, maybe specify what nationality ticks the boxes of what you take heed of. Or maybe it’s colour of hair or eyes that matters. Or willie size maybe?

      2. Rosette of Sirius

        Oh. One more thing before I forget. He died last August. Before rona hit. Ya big rube.

          1. Rosette of Sirius

            He is either dead, not dead or some Bulgarian with a crystal ball have channeled him from the grave. Wooooooo.

          2. Rosette of Sirius

            Snopes?! I’ll go with the AAP and an article on Reuters.



            ‘M’ claimed that Kary Mullis said that PCR testing for the virus – COVID in this instance – does not work. And presented his Nobel winning credentials to back it up.

            Presumably because he/she’s reading the same woo on Facebook as the rest of you wooAnon types.

            He never said any such thing. Because he’s dead. And some other fella made those comments years back in relation to HIV and not COVID.

            Yis are either really stupid or utterly malicious.

          3. Pat Mustard

            So rueters and aap.. Literally no difference than snopes.



            Both have been rented out by the Gates Foundation.

            Meanwhile, the European society of pathology, the Royal college of pathology, the RCPA, the ICCR, the CAP and many more sponsor the “Bulgarian” effort.

            And the Mullis said that statement re avian flu which falls in the same category as c19.

            In summary, you’re wrong.

      Maybe let’s wait and see what realise that it’s about quality of life not locking people down like rats in a cage

  1. realPolithicks

    I wonder if soq is there pushing his latest snakeoil remedy. Get your hydroxychloroquine, two for five euro!

    1. Frilly Keane, Rebooted, Live and Dangerous

      I might regret this
      But feck it

      SOQ isn’t wrong about the principal reason hydroxywhatyamacallit hasn’t got the big swing behind it

      It’s got nothing to do with whether it works or not
      It’s because it’s available as a generic
      Like paracetamol

      Labs can’t get grants to look for the next new big thing
      (And there are currently just over 170 engaged worldwide)
      And Big Pharma can’t get horny

      So then neither can the next tier in the real money game;
      The regulators and the legislators

      Then the medical profession, corporate employers, industry, whatever you’re having yourself

      They’ll probably get another month out of the masks
      After that if this Country hasn’t reopened there’s a Nuclear Winter we are never coming out of ahead

      Then there’s the leaving cert results and a third level athatvwad on its last legs even with full fee paying foreign students

      It’s going to get ugly

        1. SOQ

          The main report which said it didn’t work was subsequently proved to be fraudulent- near all trails are saying it does work.

      1. SOQ

        Oh it goes further than that- according to Simone Gold, if there is a recognised effective treatment available then vaccines cannot be fast tracked so they have to go thorough all the standard testing first- and that takes years.

  2. Rosette of Sirius

    Looks like the fella in the first pic is sporting a MAGA hat. It’s all-out wooAnon in Montrose today.

      1. scottser

        I wouldn’t sully myself, but a body could make a nice few quid selling such tat at these sorts of shindigs.

  3. Scundered

    Look at all those internet medical experts. Surely they could all be charged with offences against the state of willingly putting people at risk of infection?

    1. Nigel

      At a minimum they should be expected to resign from any of their positions on European Commissions.

      1. Nigel

        There are no causal relations between the two types of protest, but wasn’t there an anti-covid/anti-mask protest or two before BLM? And then there were the Debenhams demonstrations.

          1. Nigel

            Just trying to keep the timeline straight, since I’ve seen you and others suggest the BLM protests gave permission or license or pretext for other protests, and that breaks causality.

          2. SOQ

            In terms of potential prosecutions, the oldest ones should be investigated first surely? Otherwise that infers a particular bias on the part of the authorities.

          3. Ben

            SOQ it’s rampant in the M&S orgaready meals but marks and Spencer’s ready made meals and gas flushed organic treats

        1. Scundered

          There is a connection between all 3 protests, absolutely everyone who attended any of them is an utter muppet who can’t accept facts.

          1. f_lawless

            Sounds to me more like the reaction of someone who’s unable to rationalise the fact that all these protests in Ireland and across Europe haven’t led to any resurgence of the virus. Instead deaths and hospitalisations continued on their steep decline, now at near zero for several weeks. As a consequence you lash out at others for the thing that disturbs you about yourself: “an utter muppet who can’t accept facts.”. It’s called projecting.

          2. Boj

            Whose facts? My facts? Your facts? Media facts? I believe you will see a correlation between em all. It’s called a clusterfupp and the fake news agenda has been conditioning us all up on this for a while. Now no one knows what to believe and now we are turning on ourselves…nice one! Keep hating…you’re not being manipulated at all! Humans in charge would never do such a thing…

          3. Boj

            So we haven’t been bombarded with fake news/true news, confusion with a dash of divide and conquer? Get up off the floor!!

          4. Boj

            I agree V. In my mind, fake news IS manipulated news… true facts are tampered with or an overemphasis put on something else while other much more relevant things are happening.

          5. Nigel

            Only one of the protests is about denying the existence of the virus. The other two were about weighing up the facts of the pandemic against their own sense of urgency about what they were protesting. You may see them as being muppets for their sense of priorities, but they weren’t denying facts.

          6. Scundered

            F_lawless, you need to give up watching the David Icke videos, there’s a reason why the government take advice from doctors instead of conspiracy theorists. In winter you could be surrounded with people with the flu and you might still not catch it, that doesn’t mean it’s harmless or that you’re safe. You have no idea if anyone was carrying the virus at the protests, or several or many, so your statement is pointless unless you know those facts, however we can be sure people will be safe if they don’t attend. It’s not that difficult to understand.

          7. SOQ

            there’s a reason why the government take advice from doctors instead of…OTHER DOCTORS???

            Every time we talk or even shake hands we exchange little things- that is how life and death moves along.

            Now you can do a Howard Hughes and indefinitely lock down or just boost the immune by not eating processed crap and, hope for the best.
            One of those buggers is going to take you at some stage so why live in fear of the inevitable?

            You are most definitely going to die and probably a lot sooner that you think.

          8. f_lawless

            Some good insights on David Icke and his persona in this piece:

            “David Icke has done more to discredit reasonable critiques of the world-system than any conservative MP or corporate CEO could ever do. If he didn’t exist the elites of the world would have to invent him. Any reasonable fear expressed by sane people is instantly discredited by his association. Take 5G. Okay, David, it’s destroying our immune systems, implanting mind-control worms in our pituitary glands and shattering our testicles with gamma rays. Whatever. Voice an entirely realistic doubt about it — that 5G is a technology that nobody asked for, that nobody needs, that does nothing but enhance state-corporate power and, given that it is an extremely powerful new technology, will have disastrous unforeseen secondary consequences (on human and natural health). Point this out and hahahaha! David Icke says the same thing! You anti-vax, anti-science, irrational, chakra-sucking conspiracy theorist you!..

            ..David Icke’s reach and popularity, have, to some extent, ‘helped the current struggle,’ and maybe there’s an argument for ‘any port in a storm’, but here’s a conspiracy theory for ya. Why has he been trending for three days on twitter? Why was he invited to speak at the anti-lockdown rally in London? Why was his channel being taken down from YouTube reported across the MSN? As with all conspiracy theories ultimately it doesn’t matter if it’s true or not, because the system automatically and unconsciously allows intellectuals who are superficially plausible but fundamentally risible, or whose work is full of irrelevant speculation, into the limelight anyway; for the same reason that, first of all, so many people share facts that back up their argument without checking them out first (or at least without offering a proviso, as I do — because I don’t have time to check them all out — that facts must always subject to doubt), and secondly, why we all seek out conspicuous idiots who share viewpoints we disagree with. You believe industrial technology has autonomous power over the earth? Hahahaha! So does Ted Kaczynski! You believe Jesus of Nazareth made sense? Hahahaha! So does Jordan Peterson! You believe coronavirus figures have been inflated? Hahahaha! So does Jair Bolsonaro! And so on. Guilt by association it’s called. Elites are quite happy for Ted Kaczynski, Jordon Peterson and Jair Bolsonaro to get air time, to promote them as figures of ridicule, because they are at best harmless and, to the extent they can be laughed at or reviled, actively useful. They want truth-shaped clowns like David Icke in the spotlight.”

          I firmly believe ALL Liverpool fans should be flogged for even watching that game v atletico madrid.

      1. Scundered

        I simply believe in taking my medical advice from doctors instead of David Icke. It’s not really a controversial position.

        1. Daisy Chainsaw

          Why on earth would you take the advice of medical professionals over a beshellsuited, ex sports commentator who said he was the son of god?

        2. GiggidyGoo

          And the doctors that don’t agree with the ones you take your advice from? They’re doctors too, are they not? Why not take their advice?

    I wonder if they’ve ever posted much on their various facebook feeds about being anti face recognition software? Hard choices in life…

    1. Lilly

      This made me laugh:

      ‘Gemma is hired by intelligence agencies to denegrate all those who are fighting for the real concerns surrounding our freedoms. Labelled a “crazy conspiracy theorist” by everyone in Ireland weakens the cause of those resisting the States over reach. Classic Psyop operation.’

    1. Scundered

      Jaysus, that guy stating it’s mass genocide, needs to be sectioned. Big tech needs to take some responsibility for the brain washing that takes place when people read only one political narrative in their social feeds. This is dangerous and depressing to see. Always choose multiple news sources covering all angles, left and right, the truth is somewhere in the middle.

          1. Ian-O

            They actually said scrabble, not scramble. So you get 5/10.

            As Jebuus Of The Shire said “let she who is without sellping mastakes throw the first rock.”

    1. Ian-O

      I suppose psychological scars are not as obvious.

      I do hope that child had access to a decent therapist later in life.

    2. Daisy Chainsaw

      She’ll be home schooled by uneducated zealots and be the next GemGems.

      Poor wee girl hasn’t a hope.

  5. CE

    I text with a stick by reaching out to my phone which is situated just outside my Faraday cage… all is well

    1. Ian-O

      Leave them at it I say. Most of them have literally nothing else to be doing and they are annoying RTE.


      Ideally I’d like to see Tubridy go up against Waters in a stake lined pit with slash hooks coated with weils disease.

      Doesn’t matter who wins, so long as both “score” off each other.

  6. Just Sayin

    Just because those rotestors are a bunch of loons, that doesn’t mean that they’re not correct about
    ” the station’s ongoing ‘one-sided’, ‘government-biased’ and’ ‘fear-mongering’ coverage ”

    Also it’s clear that the governments policy has been a total shambles and we will be paying for their mistakes for a long time.

    I believe that a significant minority of sane people also see this but don’t want to be associated with the loons.

    At some point when enough people have copped on, there will be a huge push back.

    The media will devour the government and their advisors in an attempt to make it look like they themselves weren’t complicit in the chaos.
