Some.... interesting opinions from my local representative here:

Quote
Celtic Tiger immigrants made us better-looking, says Mitchell

A veteran Fine Gael TD has said immigration has been good for Ireland as the country needed to “expand our gene pool” . Olivia Mitchell claimed immigration in the Celtic Tiger years has already resulted in physical improvements.
The deputy for Dublin South, warned of the dangers of reducing the diversity of the population’s genetic stock during a Dáil debate on the new requirement to register father’s names on children’s birth certificates.
“It is unacceptable that even as recently as last year, 2,675 children were born and registered without a father’s name on their birth certificate. I presume the number is roughly the same every year,” she said.
Ms Mitchell said if fathers remained living in the same area over a number of years and had more children it was quite likely two of those children might meet without being aware of their shared parentage.
“[This] raises the possibility of relationships outside the permitted degree and certainly outside what would be wise. As a small island country we should be expanding our gene pool, not reducing it,” she said.
Contacted by The Irish Times about her comments , Ms Mitchell said she believed that the “mobilty of races” had had a positive impact on Ireland.
“I think as an island country cut off from the rest of Europe, it’s a good thing that we have a certain amount of immigration. Mobility of races is a good thing,” she said.
“You can even see the better-looking and taller children now as a result of the Celtic Tiger years. I think it’s a good thing to keep our IQs up there; it’s not just about appearance.”

This could have been a interesting discussion if not for the poster who start it, with his ridiculous inability that how we see and practice religion is a social construct and that every culture build a different construction.


No it couldn't because this 'event' isn't happening.

I share Mechaman's sentiments. The desire to end Columbus Day strikes me as an ineffectual gesture that allows white liberals to forget about the awkward past; the cause of so much guilt in the lives of whites with college degrees. Meanwhile, Zapotecos and Nahuas are abused as waged slaves before being deported to Oaxaca or Puebla and Lakota children are stolen from their mothers to be raised by white foster parents for specious reasons. The indigenous peoples of the Americas are not noble savages or cultural artifacts or mythical beings, they're still oppressed and immiserated and the "once a year" Native American activists are silent about the plethora of everyday problems facing the indigenous in the US and ancient farming communities in Mexico. Ultimately, this is because "once a year" Native American activists are brand activists: they don't care about living Indians, they care about their identity as self-aware Americans.

What Oakvale says is completely correct but I'll add one more point - that sort of Americanizing language, speaking of religion in terms of 'market share' and applying American narratives to Irish experiences where they don't belong is typical of the sort of right-wing concern troll 'pundits' that Ireland has (a small population). Keeping that in mind, would it be at all surprising to note that Kenny wrote articles supporting the war in Iraq and thinks that the British Empire was an objectively good thing whose role in Ireland should be particularly proud of?

There are now six Trotskyites in the Dail, representing three different political parties. Two of these have been elected in by-elections thanks to conservative voters preferring them to SF.

Seven and four if you include Séamus Healy.

FGers know on which side their bread is buttered, and which set of insurrectionists are most likely to implode into a mess of warring factions.

I was thinking of including Healy, but I don't think he's a trot so much as associates with them.

On the other side, there is John Halligan who as an ex-member of the WP was (is?) a tankie.
