      Dee Wall tweeting very favourably about this. She (and her crutch) will be there.

      Big question is will Gemma show her face. Jury is out. Few folks hope she and John will make the journey in.

      1. Daisy Chainsaw

        Dee still pretending she needs the crutch! How many 5k walks from the GPO to RTE has she done this year alone?

      1. ReproBertie

        People who think the restrictions are purely to stop people attending their protest would be among those I’d consider loons right enough.

    1. E'Matty

      Because they’re actually correct. The country is being destroyed by this government and the idiot class who follow anything that comes from a supposed “voice of authority” You know, the dumb herd types who cannot analyse data for themselves and abdicate repsonsibilty for critical thought to voices they consider superior to themselves.

      Well done Broadsheet for being a media provider that isn’t trying to silence the truth.

      1. M

        A summary of that Journal.ie article today:

        Position A: COVID – 19 is a conspiracy pushed by the WHO etc.

        Position of the Journal.ie: FALSE – We asked the WHO and they said that it isn’t.

        I’m sure glad they cleared that up.

  1. ReproBertie

    Don’t forget your 2x4s wrapped in a tricolour. No self respecting paytriot would be seen without one.

      1. SOQ

        Well if they are so far right then why is The National Party calling for a boycott- because of alleged links to SF?

        1. ReproBertie

          Justin Barrett fails to gain support on the anti-mask platform so starts a campaign against them. Did they deny him the opportunity to speak?

          It’s not necessarily Health Freedom Ireland who are right wing. It’s the knuckle dragging paytriot crowd who attend, and sometimes even speak at, these events trying to convert people to their racist nonsense that are right wing. There will be a lot of misguided people in the crowd who are frustrated with lockdowns and lost earnings and confused by FB posts which deny the science. They’ll be the targets of the likes of Barrett. So far the more right wing speakers have struggled to garner support, thankfully, but they’ll keep trying.

          1. SOQ

            The National Party ARE calling for a boycott Bertie- as per this tweet.

            https://twitter.com/NationalPartyIE/status/1311339278736199682

            As for the rest of your ramble- If back in the day we in the gay rights movement had held your blinkered views- we’d still be illegal let alone having equal marriage. Its called single issue politics and it is VERY powerful.

            Please don’t insult people’s intelligence. That they are on the streets in such numbers is living proof that they are well capable of critical thinking and most will be way more educated on the subject that a lot of those throwing such slurs.

          2. ReproBertie

            I didn’t deny that Justin is calling for a boycott. I’m suggesting his stated motive is baloney.

            Attempting to compare the gay rights movement to this is pathetic.

          3. ReproBertie

            I’m not making it partisan Pat. It’s the right wing paytriots who are trying to do that. Reading comprehension really isn’t your strong point.

          4. SOQ

            Attempting to compare the gay rights movement to this is pathetic.

            Well obviously you were there as a srt8 supporter yeah? I didn’t think so.

            Back then it was called gay liberation and up pops that word again- ‘LIBERTY. You may not see the correlation but there are plenty who do.

            Freedom is not something to be gifted to law abiding citizens in a democratic society- it is a constitutional right.

          5. SOQ

            I know enough to see that YOUR definition of gay liberation is the only one to be considered.

            There were Black Asian and gay at the last protest and there will be more this time around but- If YV allow that donkey to lead again then there won’t be another.

          6. ReproBertie

            “I know enough to see that YOUR definition of gay liberation is the only one to be considered”

            Like I said, you know nothing.

      2. bisted

        …seriously disappointed Broadsheet…thought you might have learned your lesson with Gemma…instead you are promoting marching behind her…wrong side again…

        1. E'Matty

          nope, you’re on the wrong side aligned with the sociapath billionaire class. But wait, you actually think they care about you and your family. Jesus Chri….

  2. TypeONegative

    Is Broadsheet’s stance officially anti-lockdown?
    You sure seem to lean towards it in your coverage, beyond reasonable impartiality.

      1. E'Matty

        Good man Bodger!! Great to see someone in irish online media who isn’t following this idiotic group-think the rest have fallen prey to.

        1. Itchysays

          Define ‘Group think’ E’Matty….particularly the bit that distinguishes between your ‘shared view’… which in no way could be considered ‘group think’…and those that share an opposing view to you and your ilk.

          Yours is merely an expression of ‘ like minded opinions’ yes ?

  3. Just Sayin

    The march is for people who think the government have made poor choices in how they dealt with this.

    It’s not a march for people who like Gemma.

    1. Commenter #1

      Well, it’s also for people who believe that “our fundamental constitutional freedoms are being eroded under the guise of a public health crisis.”

      Sounds like people who like Gemma to me!

      1. E'Matty

        Yeah, anyone who thinks our Constitutional Rights aren’t being eroded is totally like Gemma. What kind of an imbecile are you?

          1. Commenter #1

            Pretty much!

            However, I will point out that “people who like Gemma” (although similar!) is not quite the same as “people who are like Gemma.” There’s a tricky little extra word in there. Can catch people up!

          2. Commenter #1

            Maybe! It’s also pretty weak to be called an imbecile by someone who gets so cross that they forget how to read, but “E’Matty” can only play the hand he’s been dealt I suppose.

  4. E'Matty

    It’s amusing to read the comments of the idiot class condemning these protesters. These types read only mainstream media and then think themselves informed about the world. They have been conditioned to view anything that steps outside the msm overton window as “conspiracy theory nonsense” or “Far-right” propaganda no matter how many times those supposed “conspiracy theorists” are proven right. Do these idiots stil think the Iraq invasion was about liberating Iraq and “spreading freedom and democracy”? Do these idiots still think the NSA isn’t harvesting data from populations around the world en masse? Do these idiots still believe there was a wonderful pro democracy group of “moderate rebels” battling for freedom in Syria? Do these idiots stil believe Russia “hacked the US election” (whatever the hell that’s even supposed to mean) to get Trump elected? All BS pushed by the msm that this idiot class swallowed whole.

    Now, on Covid we see the tide turning. Those who have been condemned and labelled conspiracy theorists for daring to challenge the governments narrattive, are by the day, being proven right. They said from day one that PCR tests provide 2-3% false positives and the more you test, the more positives you will necessarily get. They said from day one that this was a virus that affected almost exlcusively the very elderly and already ill, and from the stats this much is now clear. They said from day one that the government was exaggerating the death count and the media was amplifying this with hysteria inducing headlines and fearmongering reports.

    What we see now with Leo V, and will see with this idiot class, is that as the tide turns and public opinion moves towards the positions promoted by those crazy “conspiracy theorists” they will go mainstream and the idiot clas will then act like they have held those beliefs all along. At that stage, one would look like an idiot not to have, and what these people fear most is looking foolish. That is how they are generally controlled. social and peer pressure. They are terrifed of standing up and speaking out against the tide of popular opinion, preferring to hide behind voices of authority and sneer at those who bravely speak out.

    1. ReproBertie

      You’ll certainly win a lot of supporters by starting off calling them the idiot class. Only an idiot would disagree with us. Is that the social and peer pressure you’re using to try and control people?

        1. ReproBertie

          No I didn’t. You might want to look at the times of my comments again. The comment where I mentioned loons, in a reference to the comment I was responding to, was 23 minutes after my opening comment.

          It’s amusing that you’ve become so obsessed with me and all based on your own lack of simple comprehension.

          1. ReproBertie

            I was right though, wasn’t I? My opening comment doesn’t mention loons.

            You know what they say about he who laughs last.

            LOL!

      1. E'Matty

        Not at all. You’re the idiot class. I am not looking to pursuade you. You hold no value to us creating a movement against the restrictions. There is a whole cohort of people though who have long had suspicions, at least, that all was not right with this Covid narrative BS. They have been silenced for too long and now are ready to make their voices heard. People like me are here to agressively challenge the idiot class who try sneer and silence anyone challenging the government line to create the space for these people to feel confident enough to voice their opinions and make a stand. You guys are going to find that those who aren’t buying what the gov is selling are far greater in number than you currently believe, with your media conditioned perspective on the world.

        1. ReproBertie

          You say all that but I look at the election results and see that you’re full of hot air and sock puppets.

          Enjoy your day out. Don’t forget your mask.

          1. Pat Mustard

            Hot air is what I’d call your Justin Barrett rant up above.

            But enjoy your day also, even if you’re not at the protest (I won’t be as I’m on shift work).

          2. Alexander the Great

            What is a fella with a load of degrees doing working in a meat factory or similar?

          1. Pat Mustard

            I didn’t side with anyone..

            But so typical of you to jump out of the blocks and self own.

          2. SOQ

            Diasy- you are like the old spinster aunt, after too many sherrys, sitting in the corner of a wedding, hurling abuse at anyone who walks by- and just as relevant to the proceedings.

          3. Daisy Chainsaw

            And yet you can’t stop yourself from reading and commenting. Another new head residence for me. I’ll use your little squishie brain as a bean bag while watching a box set.

    2. bisted

      …as you were…the tan speaking down to the ranks seems to be de rigour at the moment…anyway, pro-sickness brigade will be relieved that E’Matty has been assigned to Broadsheet…

      1. E'Matty

        the “Tan”? I’m afraid you’re the Tan aligning with the Anglo Amercian ruling sociopaths. You’re kind of like the people who attacked the 1916 men after Rising and made tea and sandwiches for the British soldiers who arrived in DunLaoghaire as they made their way into the city centre.

        1. Alexander the Great

          its true what Bisted said though
          Your “movement” doesn’t hold you in very high esteem if they assign you to menial flag waving duties in a nothing burger outlet like the Broadsheet and all of its ten regular readers

          1. E'Matty

            @ Alex – “Your “movement” doesn’t hold you in very high esteem if they assign you to menial flag waving duties in a nothing burger outlet like the Broadsheet”. Yeah, because I was “assigned” :-) hilarious. Yeah, my superiors gave me the order to go comment on Broadsheet. You’ve some imagination but even that
            betrays your mentality. You think one needs orders to take action on something. I’d imagine you don’t have an original thought on any subject that wasn’t handed down to you by someone or some organisation you perceived to be superior to you. I feel sorry for you with that mindset, such low self esteem.

          2. Alexander the Great

            They assigned you to this remote Siberian outpost comrade because you are an embarrassment even to them, which is some kind of special badge, only afforded to the truly beautiful

    3. Lilly

      ‘They said from day one that this was a virus that affected almost exlcusively the very elderly and already ill, and from the stats this much is now clear’

      @E’Matty – I’m all in favour of people questioning received wisdom but the above statement is patently untrue. I know otherwise healthy – and not at all elderly – people who have had months of their lives ruined by this virus, with no certainty as to long-term repercussions.

      1. E'Matty

        @Lilly, and these people likely suffered cytokine storms. That is when the immune system goes into overdrive and attacks the body’s organs, hence the after effects being suffered by some. What causess cytokine storms? Well, coronaviruses have a long and well documented histroy of cytokine storms through vaccine interference. Might your friends have, like the elderly and healthcare staff (whom we see trotted out for the press), have been recipients of the flu vaccine in the past two years? My sister is a senior nurse. She says many of her colleagues have been badly affected by the virus. All she spoke to had recevied the flu vaccine in the autumn. Consider this when the government, for the first time ever, is seeking to have the whole population receive the flu vaccine, even young kids, which was never the case before.

        1. Lilly

          No flu vaccine in these cases, E’Matty. No hospital either – probably regarded by medics as moderate cases – but months of debilitating after effects.

          1. E'Matty

            Do these debilitating after effects outweigh the catastrophic impact currently being imposed on the mental health of hundreds of thousands of children, teenagers, young adults? Does it outweigh the thousands who will die due to delayed cancer diagnosis or those who die from cardiac issues, too afraid to go near a hospital before it’s too late? Perhaps some will suffer after effects, but we cannot kill off Irish society to protect a few from some after effects. This myopic view of reality where only Covid effects are deemed relevant is destroying this country and the lives of millions. Life has risks, we must balance those and no perfect solution exists. This obsession with a virus, the threat from which is grossly exaggerated, is have a devastating impact on the country. People are utterly ignorant of what we will be facing in the coming years due to the damage already inflicted, nevermind what will happen if we continue on this destructive path. The same people will be crying about the poverty, deprivation and suffering, as if they played no role in its creation.

      2. Lilly

        That’s a whole different set of questions, E’Matty, important ones, I agree. My original point stands: stop downplaying the severity of the virus and claiming that it only affects the elderly. Have an honest conversation about the balancing act that faces us.

  5. RobbieF

    Lots of comments about the “loons” nothing about “Covid-19 death rates are being inflated as a way of justifying continued restrictions on the public.”

    This was one of their far out conspiracy theories. They were right about this one..What else are they right about?

    Anyone??

    1. ReproBertie

      Were they right about that?

      HIQA’s Chief Scientist, Dr Conor Teljeur, said the official figure of 1,700 deaths as a result of the virus is correct and while it may be a slight overestimate it is nonetheless an accurate estimate.

      He said some of those who died were frail and close to the end of life or others had pre-existing conditions made more severe, and in some of these cases their deaths may have been accelerated as a result of contracting Covid-19.

      However, he said, the reality is that those people did die as a result of contracting the virus.

      https://www.rte.ie/news/health/2020/0703/1151127-virus-report/

      That’s from the report Graham Neary includes in the first tweet above.

      1. E'Matty

        “their deaths may have been accelerated as a result of contracting Covid-19.” What a load of BS. They died of chronic heart disease, chronic neurological diseases (Parkinsons, Alzheimers, MS), Chronic Respiratory Diseases, Cancer/malignancy, and diabetes, which 95% of thsoe who died were confirmed as having (HSE). You know, the awful illnesses that normally kill the elderly. You don’t die with a bloody virus. It’s a complete crock of BS.

        The only ones who can rightly claim death from Covid might be those who suffered a cytokine storm but then that begs the questuion, what caused them to suffer the cytokine storm. Nobody wants to ask that question. The answer doesn’t sit well with current gov policy.

          1. Daisy Chainsaw

            Donkeys don’t do science and HFI will tell them that a bitta zinc and magnesium would have cleared that Alzheimers right up.

          2. E'Matty

            oh right, such trust in a person of authority. Therein lies your problem. You think the man in the important looking uniform is an arbiter of truth, an infallble source, a vocie of authority. So herd-like…that’s the behaviour of sheep.

      2. f_lawless

        @ReproBertie

        “However, he said, the reality is that those people did die as a result of contracting the virus.”

        You’re quoting directly from the RTE article but you have to be careful with RTE -It’s not a trustworthy source on the matter. Dr Teljeur says no such thing. Watch the video embedded in the article to see what he actually says.

        Of the 1709 figure, he says it’s a slight over-estimate of those who were actually Covid-19 positive. But in order to explain why 1709 was about 500 more than the number of all-cause excess deaths for the period of March-June (put at 1,200) he says:

        “we think a lot of the (Covid) cases were people who possibly died with Covid-19 than necessarily because of Covid-19.”

        1. ReproBertie

          That quote not being in the video clip used in the report does not mean it’s not an accurate and direct quote.

          1. f_lawless

            Say wha?

            Dr Teljeur was asked by the presenter to explain the discrepancy between the 1709 figure and the lower excess deaths figure for the period (watching it again, he says “there was a difference of more than 630 cases”). The answer he gives is what I quoted before:: “we think a lot of the cases were people who possibly died with Covid-19 than necessarily because of Covid-19.”.

            This is in contradiction to the text of the RTE article. Quote:

            “He said the official figure of 1,700 deaths as a result of the virus is correct and while it may be a slight overestimate it is nonetheless an accurate estimate.”
            “However, he said, the reality is that those people did die as a result of contracting the virus.”

            “as a result of” means the same as “because of”

            Surely you don’t think it’s credible that he said something else to contradict himself but they decided not to use it? Notice the article has no quotation marks where they claim he said the 1700 deaths were as a result of the virus.

    2. SOQ

      It was never about politics and theories- it was about science and data and now people are demanding to know why their lives are being ruined because of it.

      Fortunately one country held its nerve and that was Sweden. No matter how much they spin, no matter how much they slant- Sweden has no ‘new normal’ because there is never any need for it. SWEDEN IS THE VACCINE because the real virus is fear.

      1. ReproBertie

        Oh sweet Jesus. Sweden again? Every time you say Sweden someone says Norway and you pretend like Norway doesn’t exist. Sweden sent an expert to talk to the Irish government and he said that Ireland are doing the right thing.

        1. SOQ

          Norway does exist but so does Belgium- the history of all three being of little relevance.

          What is happening right now and what is being planned for the future is what is of real importance- and Sweden is the only one who is not restricting their citizen’s civil liberties and has an exit strategy.

          Where is Ireland’s exit strategy eh? Or is it the case that they are just going to continue to hype dodgy “cases” and play ‘hit the mole’ with local lock downs until there is no economy left?

          That is not what this government, ANY government, was elected to do.

      2. MacGafraidh

        SOQ.. Did you do a masters on ‘Sweden’.. Everything comes back to no masks, Sweden is amazing and ‘the people’ wanting answers.. That’s your time on Broadsheet summed up in three headings.

    1. Micko

      And so you should, they work and make sense.

      I mean it’s not like cases have been going up since we introduced masks at the end of July… oh wait.

        1. Micko

          Ah man, come on. It’s 99%

          People just don’t use em right and they’ve completely stopped social distancing

          The whole thing’s a disaster.

          Edit: I of course understand causation and correlation – but it is mega suss how the two coincide.

  6. Cian

    I still don’t know what the march is for…. “protect our civil liberties and constitutional rights” is so vague… they can (and most likely will) claim that the people were there because XXXX {whatever they decide}.

    It is also a carte blanche for the Yellow Vests, as march organizers, to say everyone there supports them too (e.g. to end fluoridation of the Irish water system).

      1. Micko

        Honestly, looking at those of positions there. They are misguided and unrealistic, but which of their 27 demands would you class as fascism?

      2. Daisy Chainsaw

        The yellow vests who encourage protests against asylum seekers being put in their towns, the yellow vests who stood with known bigot Gemma O’Doherty outside Google, intimidating and threatening residents of Barrow St?

        1. Micko

          I’m not familiar with them really. I’m just asking which of their demands are fascist?

          They seem silly and misguided but not fascist.

          But I’m sure you all know better.

    1. GiggidyGoo

      It’s in the first line of the document in the post. And what you’ve written isn’t in that line. You’re not diverting or distracting again are you?

      1. Cian

        Ah, thanks GG! I’m not getting twitter pictures appearing on posts like this.All I can see is the text from the tweet.

        @Bodger – two things:
        1. can you also repost their press release on BS as an image?
        2. is anyone else said that they can’t see tweets? I just see plain text *I’m using Firefox on Win10
        “Let’s give this one last push before we get to some housekeeping for tomorrow. There are still people out there that share our concerns and would make the journey to stand with us if they knew this was happening. Tweet and retweet, spread the word! pic.twitter.com/qgbvNjkb7h

  7. Micko

    I love how “I don’t agree with your March or opinion” now equals “you’re far right”

    Nothing in the statement above indicates a far right leaning. They seem just be concerned about the restrictions being too severe and the lack of debate. Which I agree.

    Don’t get me wrong, if they were marching about keeping immigrants out or similar, then yeah that’d be mental. But they’re not.

    Will some fascists heads turn up? Maybe.

    But the fact that so many of you are willing to throw so many ordinary people under the far right banner when they clearly aren’t – is just disappointing.

      1. Daisy Chainsaw

        I know! They’ll be back out with their flags, leading the donkeys to bray outside media and newspaper outlets, hee hawwing about how they don’t like it when they print reality and not the YV woo versions.

        Make sure your brown shirt is covered by a yellow vest!

        1. Micko

          You know that trying to stop anyone from protesting or speaking their mind is basically fascism 101” right?

          You might not agree with them, but if it’s peaceful – let them at it.

          Also, I’m sure you’re heavily involved in stamping out fascism in real life. I mean your not just some sort of anti fascist keyboard warrior that complains about fascism online, but does nothing to achieve any positive outcome in the real world… right?

          Sure you’re not ;-)

          1. Daisy Chainsaw

            If you’re happy to be led around by the nose by actual self declared bigots, then good for you. Organised by fascists, led by fascists, but you’re going because you’re not a fascist… Yeah, keep telling yourself that when you’re standing outside RTE or the Journal threatening the people inside.

          2. Micko

            Oh, protesting a not my thing Daisy.

            I like individuals but not a big fan of groups. Humans in groups always seem to make a mess of things.

            But just as I suspected, you do sweet FA about anything

            You’re just a keyboard warrior. .

            I hope you think about that.

          3. Daisy Chainsaw

            I’ve been to many protest rallies and marches going back to the last century and I have no intention of heading to Plague Central in Dublin to watch a pack of disease spreading donkeys be led around by a gang of bigots because they think they’re protesting masks/5G/vaccines/chemtrails/whatever they believe is happening, as opposed to what’s actually happening.

          4. f_lawless

            Daisy sorry to be frank, but you come across as so hate-filled much of the time on here. Surely there’s other healthier, more productive ways to express yourself rather than spreading such negativity on the internet. It can’t be doing you any good in the long run.

          5. Daisy Chainsaw

            Better spreading negativity on the internet than superspreading disease and killing people with your willful ignorance.

  8. M

    A summary of that Journal.ie article today:

    Position A: COVID-19 is a conspiracy pushed by the WHO etc.

    Position of the Journal.ie: FALSE – We asked the WHO and they said that it isn’t.

    I’m sure glad they cleared that up.

    1. E'Matty

      @M. I know, the Journal really are a disgrace. Their “Fact checking” is absolute garbage. Pure propaganda. Most of their “Checks” are simply rejecting somnething based on an assurance or claim from an offical sounding source. Oh, they said it, it must be true. The hold the WHO up as if they are some indepdent arbiter of truth, some infallible organisation serving the interests of the people of the world. The WHO are heavily funded by BIg Pharma. Their two leading sponsors in 2019 were the US and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Now that Trump is pulling US funding (actually just redirecting through the Gates Foundation), this will leave auld Bill as the prime sponsor of the global health body governemnts the world over are using as the vocie of authority to follow. I’ve posted this before but I think it’s worth repeating.

      “Here’s a guy who’s organisations have been calling for a decade of vaccines (The Global Vacine Action Plan 2011-2020), global mass vaccination campaign (launched at Davos World Economic Forum Jan 2019), with a global biometric ID for every human (ID2020 – “an electronic ID program that uses generalised vaccination as a platform for digital identity). The ID2020 Alliance held their Summit entitled “Rising to the Good ID challenge” 19 September 2019. A month later in November 2019 The John Hopkins Center, World Economic Forum and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation ran a pandemic table top exercise involving top global business, government, military and public health leaders that simulated a global coronovirus pandemic.

      When the coronavirus “pandemic” did emerge towards the end of 2019 and into early 2020, who did the governments of the world turn to for guidance? The World Health Organisation of course. Who were the top sponsors of the WHO in 2019? No.1 the United States. No.2 the Gates Foundation. The Gates Foundation is now the prime financial donor for the global health organisation calling the shots.

      Just by pure coincidence, Bill has been free to focus fully on his “philanthropic work” having resigned from the Microsoft board in March 2020 (what timing!) and has since predicted that things won’t “go back to truly normal until we have a vacccine that we’ve gotten out to basically the entire world”.

      “We feel there’s been over a 20-to-1 return yielding €200 billion over those 20 or so years” Gates told CNBC’s Becky Quick on “Squawk Box” from the World Economic Forum in Davos when discussing the return on investment made by the various Gates entities from vaccines. All those fools who think he’s “giving his billions away to help the poor”, how deluded. It’s extremely profitbale for him, and far more so than tech or energy, according to Bill himself.

      People may be interested to note that Irish man Michael Ryan, who we see on our tvs speaking on behalf of the WHO, worked with the Gates Foundation in Africa on their vaccine programmes. The prominent vaccine being touted by our media is the Moderna RnA therapy vaccine. Moderna was co-founded by Julie Sunderland after having led program-related investments for the Gates Foundation which provided financial support to Moderna.

      Conflict of interest anyone?”

      But yeah, some just want to believe that Bill the ruthless billionaire just really really cares about the poor of the world. Best keep quiet about his family’s historical involvement with the eugenics movement…

    I hope it won’t be the case, but I think it’s reasonable to consider that there may be some people there tomorrow acting as ‘agent provocateurs’ with the intention to cause some sort of scene and give the media something to latch on to. The use of this kind of tactic to discredit protests which are perceived as potentially threatening to state authority is known to be fairly commonplace in this day and age. Have to be mindful of it.

      Some of those people may even be part of the platform party. The last time there was a colour party led by the Donegal donkey. Gilroy addressed the crowd. Croft was in attendance putting his slant on things and Webster, as usual, was roaming around seeking attention. The storm troopers were also there, including some beauties like the gentleman from Dundalk who is the proud owner of a substantial criminal record.

    There is great irony in these fools standing at a march waving their little flags and wearing a uniform and cheering a speech from some puppet master, and then accusing others of being idiots for following/believing some unspecified “billionaire class”…

    What does annoy me is these “protesters” waving the tricolour. You do not speak for the people of Ireland and you are not patriots. You are the opposite in both cases.

    To all the rational people reading this article, the best thing is to ignore and avoid these people. Very small noisy bunch of sadly misinformed and manipulated people who enjoy indignantly reading nonsense on the internet and blaming the government for all their ills. Your attention is like the fire in a hot air balloon, when it runs out the whole thing will slowly sink to the ground.

    Enjoy your little day out guys. Bit nippy out there so pack the tin foil hat.

      “You do not speak for the people of Ireland..”

      Isn’t it great that an anonymous poster on Broadsheet does?

        Your logic doesn’t really hold up. I am an Irish person and these flag waving protesters don’t speak for me, nor for many Irish people I know, therefore I am, by definition, correct in saying they don’t speak for the people of Ireland. So stop associating our flag with your marches / organisation / movement etc.
