A little off topic...

A little off topic...

Hi folks, I thought I would go a little off topic for today’s entry, which is always good to do every once in a while! Anyway it is a pretty deep and controversial issue but it really should resonate with everyone. So I wanted to discuss the issue of terrorism, immigration and the deep routed racism that seems to spill over from these two issues. Ireland has had its fair share of social and religious clashes and I for one have always been an atheist but try to keep a fair, understanding and liberal mind set. That isn’t easy in an environment where a big proportion of the population is Catholic!!! Anyway, being a techy I spend a lot of my time on the internet and use all manner of social media outlets. It is therefore impossible to not get drawn in by the mixed ideologies and ignorant intelligence that people advocate on the net.

 

 

If you ask a white right wing supporter they will advocate that immigrants from such countries as the Middle East have no place in the West, are here to cause problems and are probably linked to some sort of terrorist activity. The recent rush of refuges from the middle east are perhaps considered a threat to the hold white people have over the planet. Even though the vast majority of white Australian and American citizens are in fact immigrants themselves and have forcibly and unashamedly stolen land from the native people and continue to treat them like lepers. But, white supremacy and hypocricy prevail yet again and we hear nothing of these goings on in the media. What people fail to see is that no one ever really has any right over the land on this planet because our ancestry will always lead back to a migrant. People have to blame someone though; politicians and media outlets will create a victim and paint someone else as the monster, never blaming themselves for any of the worlds problems. Unfortunately, it seems that migrants have now become the new scape goat.
