To Ireland in the Coming Times

An Irish reader who asks to remain anonymous sent us this email yesterday. It concerns the second Irish referendum on the Lisbon Treaty, which will be held on October 2nd:

Dear Baron and Dymphna,

Please ask all of your readers to pray for us as this referendum approaches.

Nay!Our economic fears are being played like a violin. We were always a very poor country in monetary terms, but good in our souls.

Nobody wants to go back to the poverty and emigration of the past, but unfortunately the fear strategies of the EU and the yes-people are likely to succeed.

It took us eight hundred years to get rid of the Brits, and it looks like we will abandon our hard-earned victory just to hand over our country to unknown, unelected, and corrupt bureaucrats.

Many of our people died to make us a nation. Some were good and some bad, but eventually we emerged as a nation of the world. We are about to throw away the sacrifice of these great men and women who lost their lives and fought and died for us. After many hundreds of years of being treated like slaves and serfs in our own country, we will now be voting to put ourselves once more in the same position.
- - - - - - - - -
The forces of Multiculturalism have targeted us, and it looks like we the people will lose.

Keep up the good work and pray for us.

Those of us who are not Irish can do no more than pray.

But our Irish readers, in addition to praying, should remember to bypass the media propaganda blanket and spread the word to family, friends, co-workers, and acquaintances: this vote matters. It is about affirming a traditional Irish identity and remaining autonomous. It demands a rejection of control by distant power-hungry elitists — those unaccountable Brusselcrats who have no interest in the well-being of Ireland, but desire only the further accretion of their own power.

As a postscript, here is the final stanza of “To Ireland in the Coming Times” by William Butler Yeats:

While still I may, I write for you
The love I lived, the dream I knew.
From our birthday, until we die,
Is but the winking of an eye;
And we, our singing and our love,
What measurer Time has lit above,
And all benighted things that go
About my table to and fro,
Are passing on to where may be,
In truth’s consuming ecstasy,
No place for love and dream at all;
For God goes by with white footfall.
I cast my heart into my rhymes,
That you, in the dim coming times,
May know how my heart went with them
After the red-rose-bordered hem.

"Brusselcrats." That is a fitting neologism. It sounds just like a certain vegetable I cannot abide.

If the Irish fall for this and vote Yes then they should forever shut up about 'British oppression' and the like. It is crystal clear that the EU, led by Sarkozy, is bullying the Irish into this second vote. To give in would be an act of cowardice. The Irish don't know how lucky they are to get to vote on this as governments everywhere else in Europe won't permit it.

If the Irish decide to surrender most of their sovereignty then we can assume that the whole struggle against the British was really about hating Protestants rather than a love of freedom.

So the fate of Europe or Eurabia as the case might be, will be decided only a fortnight from now. All our fates is in the hand of the celts now. May they vote right again. May they vote NO once again.

We get fresh threats from Sarkozy, our opposition against EU can only deepen. We scheduled several (3) demonstrations in support of the Irish in front of your Embassy.

Because of our delay - waiting for others to decide - I think they have to postpone already the new rules next month and abide by Nice for the next term or artificially prolong the current term for EU Commission.

If Sarkozy feels nervous to the extent to feel compelled to issue threats against one EU state - threatening with some economic sanctions, it is a good sign.

These days it is hard to find someone in the Czech Rep. supporting EU. There is a new wave of public disgust connected with the EU plan to force us to take over immigrants, getting some miserable 4 000 EURO for each to take care of them indefinitaly.

Plus we know exactly what means islamization of Europe. The people connected the dots already.

Sarkozuman The White will fall as will EUsengard. So will The Great Eye (masonry) eventually. So finally we have come to the great battle of our time. The filthy orcses and the uruk-hai's will be driven out.

The Irish have saved Western Civilization before, and they may yet do it again.

Afonso Henriques said...

I won't pray. I won't mess with my relation with the Divine for this.

This in in the hands of the people. It's not about God. Irish, do what you must! All of us have faith in you.


P.S. - Nice to hear complaints about the Masonry here.

We will see whether the Irish value (sham) security at a low standard of living over traditional liberty of the individual with its risks and rewards.

The reason it's sham is that it is temporary. Welfare states (and that's all the EU is, a Welfare state with countries as its clients) always collapse because they redistribute money from the golden goose (capitalism) that they eventually bleed dry.

It appears that it's human nature across most cultures to prefer to be looked after with no responsibility for making one's own decisions.

In the form of the American Republic, individual liberty had its best shot and for a brief golden period did provide the most good for the most citizens throughout history and the world.

However, the poisonous stream of statism went underground and sapped the pillars of the Republic.

There are countless socialist backwaters in the world, many dependent on the successful Euro-Christian nations now being dragged down to the lowest common denominator.

The same people who are very exercised about "diversity" when it comes to some obscure insect or language dying out are fanatic about homogenizing our political systems toward the failed model. Go figure.

Small minds must always scythe tall poppies.

I am praying for you. Don't allow the EU to swallow you.

Sean O'Brian said...

Barroso is in Ireland today. He has predicted a 'No' vote and said it would create uncertainty on Ireland's position in Europe.

We all know what happened to Balrogso in the end.
