Forget the opposition or alt right, just stop being poisonous to those 3.

That's not going to happen.
There's a difference between the political left, and the social left, which is what the woke movement consists of. But, sure, politics has turned into a cesspit of behaviors.

As for capitalism's worst decade, that's due to failed economic models, and the application of dodgy financial ideas. Debt financing is a cancer in western business, just as the debt bubble was for banks. Short term gains for long term downfall. Capitalism is suffering because hard lessons weren't learned, but were merely shifted across industries. The same can be said regarding social policy, where failed systems were simply applied to other concerns, thinking it'll be different this time, even though the same practices/processes were applied.

The farmer in Fox & The Hound is a terrible stereotype of white, country farmers in America. I really hope they right this wrong and remove it from the kids section.

Mfaco is on Twitter threatening to out the very people who reject the appeal for the review of the asylum interview process, calling on Justice Minister McEntee through the use of coercion.

The arrogance on display from a failed asylum seeker whose application has been denied 3 times. How and why is he even being entertained by this country.

So they want someone who they know will automatically accept their claim without any concern or doubt nor thought of questioning them in line with our Irish Law.

Actually, and this is denied now, ‘woke’ was initially not a pejorative when appropriated from its original usage. I recall media publications use it quite unironically circa 2017. The most well-known example of it being used as a complimentary word was that Kendall Jenner Pepsi ad. That ad was probably the point when the term curdled and started to be used pejoratively because it was such a pilloried advertisement.

It must be nice to be able throw accusations of racism around knowing there will be no repercussions if it's found to be false.

I wonder if the actions of Bulelani Mfaco are winning regular Irish people over, or pushing them further away?

Makes little sense to me... aren't most of the civil servants white? They're already observing the proceedings. Seems an oddly worded paragraph.

He also calls the Civil Service officials who make these decisions as having unbounded bigotry. Astounding. Bulelani Mfaco knows that no matter how more rejections of his asylum application will take place, he is going nowhere. While he should be deported back to South Africa, it looks like we have him for keeps. This is also the man who demanded his own home (for himself) instead of Direct Provision accommodation ..... as a failed asylum seeker.

Even with all surreal stuff that is going on with Covid, this man's story tops the list of insane and bewildering situations that are allowed to fester in this country.

It's all about Mfaco first and foremost.

They want full and completely unrestricted admission into Ireland, full protections (and financial supports) retained, but also have all the rights and benefits that "others' receive, while having complete freedom to live how they please. Oh, and deportations of any kind are horrible, and show how disgusting Ireland is as a nation.

Full and tuition free access to education. Hmm... I'm pretty sure that for any other person, they need to be a resident in Ireland for three years before they become eligible... and they still have to pay for tuition.

Yup. Taking the Irish to the cleaners.

Twitter wants YOUR help in flagging misleaading news.
It takes a parody account to point out the consequences of the wokey hold on the public square of the internet

Most Irish people know that immigrants from a certain continent are mostly work shy chancers. There's 50 odd other countries on that continent if they were feeling oppressed to move to . If our welfare system wasn't the most generous in the world they wouldn't have came here .
