Nigerian lads not long in Ireland being drug dealers and beating up members of the local police with baseball bats

Quote:

The violent scenes began at 7.30pm when gardai attached to the local drugs unit attempted to search a known criminal on the Ballyogan estate.

However, the suspect fled and ran into a nearby property in Ballyogan Avenue. As a garda attempted to arrest the suspect, the door of the house was slammed shut.

Moments later, two teenagers emerged with a male in his 50s who was armed with a black metal baseball bat.

The garda was struck at least three times around the head, face and body as a large mob arrived at the scene and tried to assault the injured officer and his female colleague.

Unarmed assistance arrived a short time later, but gardai were forced to retreat due to the size and viciousness of the hostile mob.
Not a word of it on our state run broadcaster of course...

Sadly violence against police on council estates is a daily occurrence; no longer classed as news! :(

Try googling this!

Wasn't long ago when a drug dealer would lose a knee cap or two in Ireland with out any help from the police. They were white, catholic and Irish, it wasn't in the news very much then either. What's your point Parnell, all non white European immigrants are criminals?

He never made a point that ALL non-white "European immigrants" are criminals.

However it is a fact that in Europe most of the serious crimes and terrorist attacks are committed by Africans, Southern Asians, and Muslims.

Or are you going to argue that the astonishing amount of rapes in Sweden are committed by Johanssons, Anderssons, and Karlssons? :rolleyes:

2205 post on this thread. I read the last one and started humming "may the circle be unbroken ...." (happens to me all the time, my brain seems to think in songs, even if sometimes only a line or two really fit LOL).
Same ol', same ol'. In German it's called 'Parolen dreschen'. Dreschen is threshing - you hit the crop until it's farina.

So I wondered if it started as primitive as it has become and wow! How pleased was I to find the first post. :)

olygirl, the fear of US people frightened you? Well, we can just be frightened. Full stop.
Or we could go back to discuss what your original subject was (you did chose a bad title for it though ..... or has it been changed by someone who - as so many - did not get what you meant?)

The way I understand your first post - I was not active on here when you posted it - is that you wanted to discuss the phenomenon of what fear can do to people and that even though there is history to learn from (and it's not only the Nazis, it's other cases in the past as well) some people just keep reacting the same ol' way.

Or am I the one who misunderstood your intention?

When little children feel uncomfortable with something, they just sit down and scream, scream, scream. Refusing to listen to any reasoning. Does anybody see the resemblance?
Only the children grow up. Well, some.

When I look at the first post, it could have become an interesting discussion. But maybe we should just use this therad as a playpen? :msnsarcastic:

Curley,

Appearances can be deceiving as with this thread. It was started by a mod who felt my post in another thread was worthy of creating its own thread. In hindsight, the decision was a good one since there's been a lot of discussion on the topic. Please remember the thread was started in a time when extreme Muslim terrorists were stirring fear in the hearts of mankind with attacks throughout Europe.

I'm a huge fan of discussion and I've found Muslims are quite open on the topic of extremists. It's a bit like asking US citizens what they think of US gun-toting radicals who will do anything to defend their rights; the general consensus is a major shake of the head in disgust.

As for the title, it was a mod who wrote it with the best of intentions. Perhaps it's oddly worded but it seems to do the job.

Thankfully Ireland has not (yet) been ruined by a disastrous migration policy (although they certainly are going that direction) - so assaults on the police are CERTAINLY classed as news - the source is the largest selling broadsheet newspaper in Ireland.

You missed my point that violence against police in council estates is not a migrant issue but due to the locals so are frequent but usually not reported..

Some old and yet extreme examples;

Thanks for the links - not one occurred in the Irish republic - the bit that as I stated has not yet been entirely ruined by the UK's immigration policies. Shall we compare violent crime stats ??

And withdrew it from the guy who was holding the child all along, I hope.

Fox News reports that the building-scaling, child-rescuing Malian "could only have developed such climbing skills as a seasoned cat burglar. Most African immigrants arrive in Europe with just one aim: to profit criminally from their new hosts. Gang members devastate formerly peaceful, law-abiding communities, routinely turning quaint, cobblestoned corners of Europe into no-go zones for police and respectable citizens".

Breitbart adds that "the only solution to this infestation is guns, lots of them, in civilians' hands".





OK, so it's fake news, but it's probably not far off...

My first thought was of Cary Grant as John Robie 'The Cat' in 'To Catch A Thief', because I love that film. Second thought was, "I bet he's brilliant at Parkour!' Then, "You brave, slightly mental bugger!!!". I don't care how he got those skills, he used them for good and put his life on the line for a kid.

Wonder what Fox will really say... ;)

Wonder no more.

Of course, they did point out that he was living illegally in France. But that kind of ruins their argument against illegal immigration.
