ISME getting in bed with the far right

    I see on Facebook ISME , GRIPT and the Edmund Burke Institute have linked up to do a Covid video together. Seems very odd. Good for GRIPT I suppose as it gets them out to the 10k+ ISME membership. I wouldn't have thought all that 10k+ membership would be happy though. :eek:
    What's next, ISME features in theliberal.ie

    Dunno, but the comments under the video are fairly extreme.

    EDIT: Seems Gript are a right leaning Youtube channel. 3 videos from John Waters. Looks like they promote themselves as a "news" channel, but it looks more like they just find some random right wingers, set up a mock studio and shoot a video.

    Jaysus, the far right are everywhere now in Ireland.
    Quick, check under the bed :pac:

    i regularly read articles on Gript ( its not a youtube channel btw ) , nothing " far right " whatsoever about it , its funded by Declan Ganley and offers opinion with a conservative slant certainly

    GRIPT is a right wing web-site with extreme views and ISME is a representative body for small business. God only know what the Edmund Burke Institute. They say they are in to education but very little info on them.

    Are "extreme views" just views you dont agree with?

    I don't quite understand what smoking gun you think have here? Extreme right wing is not someone with conservative views and it does no-one any favours by presenting it as such.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,301 ✭✭✭ John Hutton


    "They don't agree with me" = extreme for some people. Just shows how much some live in bubbles.

    Gript is a conservative media publication, they are not extreme, or the far right.

    They might be a crap publication who you don't like (although I think they have showed considerable journalistic courage in recent times, particularly around trans issues) but that doesn't mean they are extremest or far right.

    Everyone entitled to their views but why are ISME linking up with them. Seems like GRIPT will get more out of this.

    I'd be wary of anything that Declan Ganley is funding.

    Nothing wrong at all with being wary of any news organisation, they all have their own slants.

    Capitalist running dogs in Isme.



    Paul Murphy and his far right political vehicle RISE will surely be linked.

    we should ban everything except readings of the communist manifesto, excerpts from Martin Luther King's speech that time the one with the judging people by the character not skin, and some thoughts for the day from a BIPOC trans activist, and whatever WexTipp thinks is correct thought.


    EDIT:

    The Martin luther speech is now racist, as not seeing skin colour is racist. I apologise and hope that WexTipp and the League Of Correct Thought will forgive me, and I can skip the gulag this year.

    I'm so left that even the centre is far right from my viewpoint.

    Ireland's fairly right wing. I don't know why anyone could be surprised about it.


  • Registered Users Posts: 689 ✭✭✭ JPCN1


    I see the readers of this far right threat to society and indeed civilisation have voted Peadar Tobin (60%) as their favourite party leader... Aontu being a party of the left.

    Yet I have seen Aontú called fascist and far right by many on the Left.

    Obviously they are a left wing party.

    If you aren't Che Guevara these days you are far right and even that would not be enough.

    Basically if you discuss immigration ,trans ideology , Gangs based off London and LA street gangs your far right


  • Registered Users Posts: 326 ✭✭ Gentlemanne


    It's funny that everyone on here acts in unison, absolutely incredulous that Gript has been called extreme right.

    It's literally just an irish version of Breitbart. There's a reason there's no paywall or advertisements, it's funded by pro-life groups and grifters like John McGuirk. It's not a business nor a proper journalistic enterprise but an easy to digest and share source of right wing propaganda.

    But yet they post stories mainstream media have been utterly silent on
