White lefties get slapped around and humiliated by blacks and other non-whites. Other whites may tolerate their disruption but the immigrants will just batter them if they dare get in their way.


The irony is that those lefties are probably pro-mass immigration as well yet it's the immigrants who are beating them up.

I'm a lifelong activist and I will be the first to condemn activism which disrupts peoples' daily lives rather than drawing attention to a cause in a way which elicts support and sympathy from members of the public. It's childish, moronic, and utterly counter productive.

I've always used my local area as a good example of this, versus the kind of protests we tend to get in Dublin City Centre - I live in the Dun Laoghaire area and throughout the 2000s we had a very drawn out campaign against the council's plan to sell off a large area beside the seafront to a developer, infilling a bunch of foreshore and allowing it to be closed off to public access by the owners of a prospective private apartment complex. This campaign enjoyed massive local support, and one of the things we always did was to plan out our routes and protest venues a long time in advance with the Gardaí, ensuring that various streets would only have to be closed for the minimum possible amount of time, and ultimately assembling our rallies at the end of the protests on Newtownsmith Green (Sandycove Green), away from the roads and pavements. For this reason, we never caused widespread disruption to traffic or pedestrians in the local area.

Contrast this with Dublin City Centre, where almost every protest gets hijacked by a small minority of militant idiots who decide to plonk themselves down on O'Connell bridge, one of the biggest intersections for city centre traffic (public and private alike), and thus throwing the entire inner city into often day-long traffic chaos. Think about the number of bus routes which begin and end on either O'Connel St on the north side or Westmoreland and D'Olier St on the south side, and cross the river during their route, and you'll easily see why such a blockade is perhaps the single most disruptive thing a group could do to traffic in Dublin city. As a result of this, headlines which otherwise could focus on the message of the protest, the success of it in terms of numbers, speeches made at it, etc, tend to instead be dominated by "traffic chaos as protesters shut down main city thoroughfare at rush hour".

Going back to my Dun Laoghaire example, imagine if instead of holding our rallies on the pavement outside the town hall or on Newtownsmith Green, we had a bunch of eejits sit down at the intersection of Marine Road and Crofton Road, thus blocking all traffic bus to and from Dun Laoghaire Dart Station. There wouldn't be any headlines about the size of our protest, our message, the council's response, etc - all there would be, would be very justified headlines saying "Traffic chaos throughout South County Dublin as 46A, 75, 7A, 45A bus routes shut down". such a move would, just like the O'Connell St twattery, cause disruption to public transport with consequences stretching right across the south county, far from Dun Laoghaire or its immediate environs. And thus we didn't do that, because doing that would have been an idiotic way to haemorrhage support from people who would have been on our side if we hadn't made them miss having dinner with their families by f*cking up their commute home from work or school.

Obviously that's just one local example, but how is this not blindingly obvious to anyone organising a protest? You don't win support by disrupting innocent peoples' lives, FFS - and it's extremely easy to have a large, hard hitting protest without doing so if you make some extremely simple decisions ahead of time about where you're going to have it, and how you're going to organise your route in order to minimise disruption to others. These people seem to be going out of their way to intentionally cause disruption, in a misguided application of the "all publicity is good publicity" principle - that principle simply doesn't apply to politics. And anyone with two brain cells to rub together should be able to easily recognise why.

Any black person I knew when I lived in London wasn't an immigrant. This is the level of stupidity we're dealing with with people like you and people on Stormfront. F*cking hell.

Stormfront is full of hate I would not deny that and there is a serious anti Irish bias on there.

However the post says blacks and other non whites look at a picture of London from the 60s and compare it to the present only and idiot could think immigration has noting to do with the changing demographics of the city.

Look at London stabbing after stabbing covering up the truth forces people to places like Stormfront and Political Irish.

Pardon the pun the world is not black and white for the most part there is good and bad everywhere but opening ones boarders and offering welfare to those with no intention of working and their eventual children is suicide for a society.

I have met people of all different races and nationality in work and found them to be good and decent people.


I have seen people from different races and backgrounds work really well together abroad again the key is work.

Back to the subject of this thread people blocking others getting to work with their so called protests should not be tolerated and the quote from Stormfront exposes the Irony of these deluded peoples mental state.

I made the mistake of attending an organisation meeting for a water protest a few years ago and giving my mobile number I get nothing but texts for protests even when I block the sender they come in on a different number.

I have always said people on these protests should be cut off from social welfare.

Mother of god, climate change activists stopping public transport, the idiocy of this is amazing. Block single occupancy cars or private vehicles all you want but blocking public transport and cyclists, loo lahs. The ones in Dublin seem grand.

The only thing I disagree with in you post is the amazing bit these tree huggers take the meaning of stupid to a whole different level.

That's some stretch of the imagination...
Then you don't know anything about the organisation of said fall of the Berlin wall or the 1916 rebellion, (which was even mote of a hindrance to Dublin, as XR is to London), but my guess is that you do, and the whole point of your post is misdirection; and it won't work because I'm just going to drag you back to the question which was:

Guilty ISH

My exe girlfriend was one of these SJW liberal lefties...

You know the type, goes to yoga extremely attractive looking, fit and couldn't work because she was working on her spiritual growth and development projects.

It was all brand new to me, what did this spiritual gorgeous goddess see in me the rugged gardener from the Burren.

Anyhow I never got involved in herself and her protest's but as time went on I found myself getting sucked into the madness, it starts with a trickle and basically you think you're eating a delicious meal, but instead it's poison.

A lot of them come from old money where daddy gives them a credit card and they have an endless supply of cash, even into their 40's and 50's and might have a job like a waitress or work in a cafe or woo health store.
Maybe the local co op, you know 20 hours a week..so they can sign on for the rest of the week and dad and mum will wire them at least 300 a week too

700 if the clutch goes.

Also these lefty's kid's are usually caught up in addiction and then they might have one who's an embarrassment because he or she is normal and want to get the fock out when they're 18 go get educated and prosper.

But the kid Who's strung out of it and his teeth are rotten to the core at 24 is their angel, the irony of it is they left their son or daughter do drugs from the age of 14, sure it's only grass...

Anyhow back to the protests, it's down to just being brats and a lot of the time they're living well away from what they're protesting against.

The worst I ever seen was the Shannon Airport skangers they left their camp in sh l T there was cans, bottle's and nappies everywhere after them.
They didn't care about the locals, vandalized an aircraft and had no respect for the local tourism industry, bunch of liberal loons with nothing else to do only crave attention.

They claimed the dlr was going to the financial Docklands area but it’s not like everybody who works there is a banker.

These twats never try and stop private jets. Why not?

Therein lies the answer.

Imagine you're sitting in a restaurant enjoying a juicy rib-eye and suddenly the doors are burst open and a gang of vegans comes in with placards and shouting and screaming at you, berating you for eating your choice of food and demanding that you start eating leaves instead.

Or trying to get to your workplace and being prevented from doing so by people gluing themselves to roads, footpaths, the sides of trains, doors, windows, revolving doors and just about anything they can get their hands on including roofs of planes or performing yoga on mats laid out on busy thoroughfares or locking their bodies to objects and/or each other with bicycle locks et al.

You couldn't make it up. The fact is that these people plainly have no brain cells at all and that's why they're lunatics and should be locked up.

I know parents in their 50s raising a daughter like this. Daddy makes good money and Grandad signed over the inheritance early so mommy is lashing money on her Art grad daughter who of course can't find a job. Stupid thing is she did a good LC and easily could have done something productive but she is a terrible artist. Been living in London the past 2 years on the parents money. Goes on about white male privilege and doesn't see the irony.

I know and ironically a lot of these Social justice warriors are really well educated and never get a job only living off the parents.

They'll never be effected by climate change or will they ever be cold.

Do you ever see those dirty hippie's protesting ?

They are dressed from head to toe in designer clothes but it's the more rugged thread's they'll be wearing.

Railcar Jean's and shirts, redwing iron rangers boots etc
Worn looking bellstaf wax Jackets etc
Patagonia jackets etc

So there they are protesting against the system and the clothes on them would be twice the weekly wage of the average person.

And they would have wardrobes full of these threads..

So don't be fooled by these cretins, they have it easy.

Can the average person take a month off every year and fly all over India and exotic islands ?

What are you suggesting, executions maybe?

Protests usually effect daily lives of citizens. The recent beef farmers protests saw produce disappear from shop shelves. Nurses strikes effect citizens, airport strikes effect citizens. The Hong Kong protests are clearly effecting peoples lives there, the Catalan protests will effect more and more citizens.
