Gaslighting Ireland

If you wanted to convince white people of an elite conspiracy to replace them, you could hardly improve upon the response of the Irish state and media to Thursday’s horrific stabbing in Dublin. A five-year-old girl is fighting for her life after the brutal attack outside a primary school. As of this writing, the suspect’s name and face have not been released to the public, but one could easily deduce from the caginess of the authorities that he is not of European origin. The attacker, in fact, is said to be a middle-aged naturalized Algerian who has been living in Ireland for 20 years.

This latest bit of information has been cited by The Washington Post and others as proof that the suspect is as Irish as a pint of Guinness. But it proves nothing except that Ireland, like other Western countries, has been failed by its own government. What was this man doing in Ireland in the first place, and how did he become a citizen?

The Irish government is not interested in such questions. The head of state police, Drew Harris, blamed the riots in downtown Dublin on a “lunatic faction driven by far-right ideology” and “misinformation” about the suspect being an immigrant, which turned out, actually, to be the truth. Prime Minister Leo Varadkar, who is half-Indian and not a huge fan of white people, declared, “this is not who we are” and vowed to go after the “far-right” with greater censorship. “We need laws to be able to go after them individually … They’re to blame and we’re going to get them,” he said.

But whose fault is it, really? Over the past year, the government has flooded Ireland with “asylum seekers,” many of them unvetted single men. Ireland is a small country; its population is just 5 million, 20 percent of whom are foreign born. Those most impacted by the influx are, of course, working-class people already struggling to survive. Now they are being pushed aside, in their own country, by a government more concerned with policing backlash against newcomers than keeping the people safe. Who can blame them for being angry?

It isn’t the rioting per se that the government condemns, but the sentiment driving it. In Ireland as in much of the Western world, even peaceful advocacy for immigration restrictions is proscribed as de facto Nazism. Those who want secure borders have little recourse but to seethe on social media (supposing they aren’t banned), or keep their views hidden and vote for “far-right” politicians who may or may not deliver on their promises. In Ireland, there is no charismatic figure to channel these frustrations like Donald Trump. The Irish prize fighter Conor McGregor is the closest approximation; he has been condemned by the Irish government for “spreading hate” with his impassioned commentary on the riots and the attack that precipitated them. But it doesn’t show much love to the people to dismiss their concerns as belonging to a “lunatic fringe,” does it?

The chaos in Dublin speaks to deep and repressed national feeling; it is only unusual because Westerners are normally so passive in the face of enormous, unremitting hostility. Despite their troubled history of being subjugated and dehumanized, the Irish have somehow become “oppressors” in the perverse anti-Western narrative that makes all whites into devils.

This experience is relatable to all Western people, especially in America, where the passionate rages of the racial underclass have become part of the rhythm of life and are treated as such, like the changing of the seasons. All manner of atrocities are excused and kept hidden to keep the program of racial retribution moving forward. It was just two Christmases ago that a massive terror attack in Wisconsin targeting white people was downplayed and blamed on a self-driving car. How many times have Americans been told that their southern border is “secure,” even as illegal immigration notches all-time highs under Joe Biden? What other conclusion should Americans draw, than that their government is not for them, that it actually hates them, and that it wishes them ill?

The globalist project of replacement is treacherous and unnatural, and it cannot be accomplished without constant, Orwellian deception. No one is persuaded when the media describe an Algerian man who stabs Irish children as an Irish national. The aim is to reinforce a narrative and demoralize the Irish people. But ironically, it may end by radicalizing them. A country can only take so much abuse.
