Peter Casey believes Travellers should not be recognised as an ethnic minority

https://m.independent.ie/irish-news/...-37428508.html

Pretty bold statement...not a bad strategy though, unlikely many travellers vote, if any. The vast majority of voters despise them but can’t say as much.

“His comments were last night described by Pavee Point as “ill-informed and grossly insulting and offensive”.

And David Joyce, a member of the Travelling community and the Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission, told the Irish Independent: “He should withdraw from the campaign. He’s shown he’s not fit to represent all the people of Ireland.
“This man is a racist. He is scapegoating my community.”

What does scapegoating my community mean in relation to his opinion that they should not be recognised as an ethnic minority? In fact what does “scapegoating my community” even mean?

Neither a fan of his nor theirs, but status as an ethnic minority is not defined by how much tax you pay or don't pay.

Really doesn't matter what he thinks as the president doesn't get to make decisions like that.
More populist bull**** from the man with 2% in the opinion polls.

You can bet on it. Straight from the Bannon playbook. Ireland has a void in the hierarchy for people expressing these sentiments, I'm gonna say he will get 20% in the polls if he carries on like this.

Besides the controversial statement, why are any of these jabronis even going for the presidency? It's a dead race already and was always going to be. You'd think so-called "Dragons" would realise these trends ahead of everyone else. Then you've the Sinn Fein candidate saying she'll wear a poppy. These folks are trying desperately at the last hurdle to conjour up something, anything but the other wee fella in the big house already had it wrapped up before the starting gun went off.

Purely for self promotion. They’re blissfully aware of this and know they haven’t a hope. And it’s working, who even heard of any of these ars*holes before they put themselves forward as candidates.

Higgins was in full on shocked and appalled outraged mode over this on his RTÉ interview earlier so I looked up Casey’s comments to see what the fuss is about.

He disagrees with them being recognized as a ethnic minority.

Says they avoid tax and that house prices drop when travelers move onto an area.

Says they camp on other ppl’s land.

Says the Tipperary situation with travelers demanding stables with their new houses is ridiculous.

Quote:

He cited an ongoing dispute in Tipperary where six new homes are lying empty in a €1.7m development because families living on an unauthorised site nearby are refusing to move in until they get stables for horses.

“I mean how ridiculous have we become as a society where they are turning down beautiful, four-bedroom houses because there’ll blackmailing the county council into giving them stables for their horses.

“I’m sorry, there’s something seriously wrong with society when we’re at that stage,” Mr Casey said.

Nothing overly controversial there so what’s the fuss ?

Update: lots of criticism directed at him -he says no apology for his comments and he’s planning to visit the Tipperary housing development tomorrow
