It has been suggested that religious events in Ireland simply add the prefix “Black Lives Matter” to planned celebrations and commemorations in order to deter the Gardai from taking any action against them.
The Catholic Arena has highlighted in the wake of heavy handed crackdown on faithful who gathered to pray at the grave of St. Brigid on the eve of the second most important saint in Irish history’s feast day, that future such events should market themselves with as BLM protests.
The media outlet pointed out how BLM protests were allowed to go ahead in Dublin, Louth and other places around the country in wake of George Nkencho’s death Gardai have allowed BLM protests to go ahead without any interference.
Just as BLM events during the Level 5 lockdown in 2020 were allowed to proceed without incident, with thousands of virtue signallers marching through Dublin City Centre.
On New Year’s Eve, Gardai even refrained from interfering when a mob of “Justice for George” and “BLM” thugs attacked Blanchardstown Garda station before rampaging to Blanchardstown Shopping Centre and on to Hartstown Eurospar.
While brave Gardai dealt with the dangerous rosary praying Catholics at Faughart, no such courage was displayed when gangs of African youths animalistically assaulted innocent Irish women and children in broad daylight while stunned onlookers filmed.
As gatherings to protest continued for two weeks into the new year, even a daily gathering outside Blanchardstown Garda Station, saw no reaction from Gardai.
So, the Catholic Arena suggests framing upcoming celebrations as BLM affiliated, such as a “BLM St. Patrick’s Day Parade” or a “BLM Easter”, as it appears as if Gardai are under orders to only enforce the lockdown on certain groups who enjoy less privilege in our society.
