Ireland, which used to be a colony of England, is now a colony of the European Union.
The country has fallen victim to the internationalist and multicultural values of the liberal West reminiscent of a child walking into the arms of a kidnapper holding an ice cream cone.
Much of the great collapse occurred after the country walked away from its Catholic roots. To a large degree, Catholicism was the anchor that held Ireland together. Then came the clergy sex scandals, causing understandable anger and sadness, but what did the Irish do?
The Catholic Church was thrown out with the holy water, and then the rudderless nation clamored for another savior: the European Union and the high-tech giants like Google, Facebook, Apple and Twitter, all of whom have made the country their European tax haven headquarters.
The end result has made Ireland wholly reliant—a slave–to the dictates of these ideological multinationals.
Curiously, Ireland’s transition from “the most Catholic country in the world” to a sycophant for the EU seems to have been prophesied in a work of literature, namely James Joyce’s ‘A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man.’
In this book, published in 1916, Joyce’s alter ego, Stephen Dedalus, refuses his dying mother’s request to kneel and pray at her bedside. The young artist, who no longer believes, was not about to sacrifice his ‘superior intellect’ for a sentimental, superstitious old Irish woman, even if she was his mother.
The 22–year-old artist tells his mother he will not pray for her. She will have to go to her death “alone,” without his prayers.
Joyce himself revisits the scene in ‘Ulysses,’ published 4 years after ‘Portrait’:
Stephen stood up and went over to the parapet. Leaning on it he looked down on the water and on the mailboat clearing the harbour mouth of Kingstown.
“Our mighty mother!” Buck Mulligan said.
He turned abruptly his grey searching eyes from the sea to Stephen’s face.
“The aunt thinks you killed your mother,” he said. “That’s why she won’t let me have anything to do with you.”
“Someone killed her,” Stephen said gloomily.
“You could have knelt down, Kinch, when your dying mother asked you,” Buck Milligan said. “I’m hyperborean as much as you. But to think of your mother begging you with her last breath to kneel down and pray for her. And you refused. There is something sinister in you.“
Yes, Buck Milligan, there is something sinister in overturning everything established by Saint Patrick and reverting to the Emerald Isle’s old pagan ways.
Let us count the ways.
After the 2020 George Floyd riots in the US, educated young people in Dublin copied American BLM protests, buying up the nation’s sharpies and writing incendiary protest signs while shouting “F-ck you” at police.
Next on the Irish import list—straight from the heart of American academia– was the language of ‘white privilege,’ critical race theory, and gender ideology, each delivered with an equal wallop to young people who would otherwise be sipping Guinness in the local Irish pub.
Next on Ireland’s list was the random destruction of historic statues.
As a 2020 RTE report declared:
“In Ireland today, ‘People Before Profit’ called on local authorities in Galway to remove monuments, which the party claims glorify slavery and racism…..It wants a monument to Christopher Columbus in Galway to be taken down and it is also seeking the removal of a plaque in Tuam, honouring Major Richard (Dick) Dowling, who served with the Confederate army in the US.”
A statue of Major Dowling, commissioned in 1905 for the city of Houston, Texas, was moved into storage during the George Floyd riots of 2020.
In 2015, Ireland passed the Gender Recognition Act, which permitted trans people, beginning at age 18, to have their preferred gender recognized by the State. In 2007 however, Ireland was cited by the EU’s Convention on Human Rights as being behind the rest of Europe on this issue, and informed the country to correct the infraction. Ireland obeyed its colonial masters and was thoroughly on board by 2015.
As a model EU colony, Ireland is now poised to obey another EU command: the eradication of emission gases from the planet, which in practical terms means the slaughtering of 200,000 cows to help save the planet.
Ireland’s Climate Action Plan, engineered by the same people who brought you gender ideology, the legalization of abortion, and 1,000 and one ways to open doors to illegal immigration, made it known that they wanted to halve carbon emissions by 2030 and reach net zero by 2050.
The slashing of carbon emissions by 51% by 2030, the government’s goal, was called “hugely significant” by Eamon Ryan, the country’s environment minister and Irish Green party leader.
And since agriculture causes about 37% of Ireland’s emissions, the woke target was put on cows, the same moocow that Joyce writes about in the opening pages of a “Portrait of the Artist”:
“Once upon a time and a very good time it was there was a moocow coming down along the road and this moocow that was coming down along the road met a nicens little boy named baby tuckoo…”
Tuckoo, however, is not a very nice boy.
He’s an EU agent with a sledgehammer and he stands ready to knock the moocow in the head and then slit its throat. His job is to kill 65,000 cows a year for three years in order to meet the United Nations plan to cut a quarter of emissions by 2030.
The Irish slaughtering plan is part of a much larger EU war on European farmers. Farms in Ireland and throughout Europe are facing bankruptcy because of this war, although recently Dutch farmers and fishermen took to the streets and blocked roads to protest the new emission rules.
“Reports like this only serve to further fuel the view that the government is working behind the scenes to undermine our dairy and livestock sectors,” Tim Cullinan, president of the Irish Farmers’ Association was quoted as saying.
Cullinan also stated that the target of the EU was “about the survival of the government rather than the survival of rural Ireland.”
On the other hand, super colonialist Oisin Coghlan, director of the Friends of the Earth Ireland, insisted that agriculture in Ireland should “face higher targets.”
The shape-shifting truth regarding Climate Change—it’s a myth; it’s a half myth; it’s partially true; it’s three-quarters true; it’s so true it’s Apocalypse-time and you better say good-bye to your children– has a sizeable number of scientists offering different opinions and solutions.
But slaughtering cows is not one of them.
In 1895, a New York Times headline ran: “Geologists Think the World May Be Frozen Up Again.”
‘The Times’ in 1932, announced: “Melting Polar Ice Caps to Raise the Level of Seas and Flood the Continent.”
Harper’s Magazine in 1958, predicted: “The Coming Ice Age.”
Conversely, the Capital Research Center in 2023, filed a report on “The Global Warming Scan: Carbon is Not a Poison.”
The EU, United Nations and most globalist progressive equity superpowers will naturally take extreme views, such as they did with the Covid lockdowns and the (mandatory) necessity for vaccines.
All of which means: climate change is the end of the world as we know it, and those moocows in Ireland will be slaughtered.
“If we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle,” Carl Sagan wrote.
“We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozie has captured us. It’s simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we’ve been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back.”
It’s hard to know how Ireland’s future as an EU colony will unfold, although it’s certain that that future, sans a miracle, is not in the direction of Saint Patrick.
