67 year old, taunted on video, falls over and is sat on

Monday, April 21st, 2008

But good ole Slugger O’Toole take the word of the makers of the heavily edited video of Prionsias de Rossa getting assaulted and decide that he’s a liar, it wasn’t an assault or an attack. Stupid old codger is just old. Oh no, they added a question mark, that’s ok then. Assholes? How very Ron Burgundy.

Prionsias de Rossa is by definition an old man. Whatever his build, (which apparently is crucial for the understanding of what happened) it is ignorant to taunt anyone, let alone a pensioner and if he tripped or was pushed it is a fact that when he fell they didn’t help him up but instead they fucking sat on him and taunted him further. It was an anti-Lisboner too who called the cops over this shameful incident. This of course is left out of the video but many witnesses were there to see it happen. If this was done to any of my grandparents or relations or neighbours I’d go mental.

With the lack of murderers blowing people up in the North, Slugger O’Toole obviously needs to reposition itself but it’s a shame they’ve decided to get all gutterpress about it with the way they presented this to their readership. The Cedars have gone and actually researched who these people are. That’s good blogging but then it is the Cedars, the best political and cultural bloggers we have in Ireland.

Jazz covers this too.

Meanwhile Labour’s Kathleen Lynch writes a sicknote for a child rapist

Sunday, April 20th, 2008

Kathleen should resign over this.

Trevor Casey from Closes Road, Fairhill in Cork was sentenced on Friday to 13 years imprisonment for the rape and sexual assault of the two teenage sisters of his former girlfriend.

The girls were 14 and 17 at the time. The Courts aren’t finished with him yet. He’s up for the sexual assault of another girl too.

Labour TD Kathleen Lynch wrote to the Judge on behalf of his family as did Labour Councillor John Murray. Who fucking cares if his parents are good people. Many evil people have good parents. The parents were not on trial here, their son who raped kids was. There’s war in the Northside of Cork over this with Kathleen Lynch refusing to talk to the press for a long while. It seems Eamonn Gilmore when asked to comment on it would not til he talked to her and said he couldn’t make contact. Then Kathleen released this statement:

I have received a number of queries about a letter I wrote, which was referred to by Mr. Justice Patrick McCarthy when he was today imposing a sentence of 13 years on Trevor Casey for a number of extremely serious sexual offences.

I do not know Treovor Casey personally, as I made clear in the letter. I do know his parents as good and decent people and when his mother asked me to write a letter to this effect, I agreed. It would have been cowardly of me to refuse to do so.

These are horrific offenses, for which Trevor Casey has been found guilty and the judge has imposed what he considered to be the appropriate sentence. I have no issue with the court process or the sentence imposed.

I have always been an advocate of proper support for victims of sexual attacks and believe serious offenders should receive and serve appropriate sentences.

My letter did not and was not intended to understate in any way the offences committed against the two victims in this case. I deeply sympathise with them and hope that in time they will be able to make a full recovery from their ordeal.

Kathleen Lynch T.D

Not good enough. Kathleen Lynch needs to follow what her own party said when Bobby Molloy resigned. Will Brendan Howlin ask Kathleen to resign?

Green TD Paul Gogarty: Clap harder gays clap harder

Sunday, April 20th, 2008

Update: Paul Gogarty has left his version below, which I believe and I’m altering the post to reflect this.

Via email from Deputy Gogarty:

I would suggest that the so-called quote be altered as it is factually incorrect and maliciously slanted. I never said keep putting pressure on the Green Party. ‘They’ refers to Fianna Fail, although the rest of that passage was not what I said.

It’s a bit like Peter Pan isn’t it? Apparently Paul Gogarty of the Green Party told someone that gay people need to make more noise if they want equal rights. He complained not enough gay people have been contacting the Green Party Fianna Fáil conservatives to beg and grovel for equality.

they (Fianna Fáil) as a party have had little input from members of the gay community, and that there has to be pressure from all of us in order for any changes to be made.

So we all clapped harder and louder to help tinkerbell so maybe all the gay people have to work that little bit harder for the hard of hearing Green Party Fianna Fáil. I know LGBT Noise are useless but they do what they say on the tin and Christ almighty David Norris never shuts up. How exactly should the begging letters be addressed to the Government? Glitter envelopes? Fabulous handwriting?

Eamon Ryan – Green Party Sex God

Thursday, April 17th, 2008

It was in the Indo so it’s beyond fact.

The young wans in the Green Party are hot for Eamon and the lads are gay for him (in the gay way).

During a discussion on how to attract more young people to the party, Louise Archbold of the Young Greens got a bit frisky. “When all else fails, we just put up some Eamon Ryan posters and watch the girls — and some of the boys — sign up,” she said naughtily.

When he was winding up his speech on Saturday, Eamon got a bit passionate. In order to wrap the world in green cloth, he was prepared to take drastic action. “I will take off my jacket. I will take off my shirt!” he announced to a bit of lusty cheering.

Sadly for the womenfolk Eamon kept his shirt on, even when a spot of serious disco shapes were being thrown in the hotel bar late on Saturday night. The minister left the dance floor to vegetable-loving junior minister Trevor Sargent who made like a Mexican jumping bean during ‘Leim Thart’, Des Bishop’s as Gaeilge version of ‘Jump Around’.

Here’s Eamon in all his, er, glory. Of course his Kitt runs on vegetable oil. The fumes after the turbo boost are quite noxious.
Eamon Ryan is the HOFF!

God bless you Green Ink.

Check out these Bebo pics, here’s a good one. The puppet is the pink one. Bottom, middle.
Eamon Ryan is no puppet.

Forgive them lady-god for they do not know what they do

Uh oh. The UCD All-male Oogling Society aka Students Union have been found out for the women-loving pigdogs they are! Pigdogs I say. Oink oink woof woof.

Pictured above is one of the lovely ladies that will be taking part in the Miss UCD Beauty Pageant tomorrow. Rounds include:

  • Best tea making round.
  • The makeup application round which is judged both on depth of makeup as well as orangeyness.
  • The sports round which involves hula hooping using your own hoopy earrings.
  • The handbag lifting round for those giant handbags.

But women that enter this competition are apparently “sheep” so there will be a protest and an alternative beauty pageant held too. (No, that does not mean a drag queen event, there’s like one of them a week in UCD). We wonder, like men, do real women not wax or shave?

Here’s a quote from the Fundymedia page:

This year see’s the first (and hopefully last!) Miss UCD beauty pageant, sponsored by UCDSU ,alongside trashy tabloids The sun and News of the world. The first Miss UCD takes place on Thursday 17th April. The winner of the ‘competition’ will win automatic entry to Miss Ireland as well as winning beauty makeovers , clothes and a gym membership. Miss Ireland and hence Miss UCD bans all mothers, wives and women under 5’4 from entering.These sexist competitions have no place in Ireland and particularly in UCD. These types of competitions are demeaning and are an excuse for putting sexism on parade They encourage the idea that women should be seen as sex objects to be judged by men, as well as making women believe that to be desirable they have to conform to unrealistic types of ‘beauty’.

To oppose union involvement in Miss UCD, UCD students against sexism are holding a mock Miss UCD beauty pageant where the REAL Miss UCD will be crowned. At the event,which will be held Thurs 17th April at 1 outside the arts block, we will be distributing leaflets to highlight some of the challenges facing women in modern Ireland. There will also be speakers present from the Equality department , the Socialist party and more.
We ask all students and staff from all univeristys who oppose sexism to get involved.Come along on the day,show your support and say NO to sexism!

Tell you what, I will give 100 quid to any man who turns up to it with a “Woman, iron my shirt and make my dinner” placard. Yes it’s been done before but still. Pigdogs!

Sandal John versus China

Monday, April 14th, 2008

Yeah the whole lot of em.
Jazzbiscuit has more of John and his bike versus the might of China. Fair play for what he said. Now how about speaking out closer to home about samesex couples and their right to have rights to their kids?

Stoled this from Jazzy, but it’s actually recycling. Go Greens!
John Gormley takes on China, c'mon maofos!

Grab your balls like the guy in the poster

“No Lucinda, I meant Barry. Barry stop fucking playing vroom vroom.”

Ball grabber

Meanwhile, the branez of Young Fine Gowl said that this is marketing and all the people talking about it are spreading the word about Lisbon. Jesus, isn’t that what those idiots in RockTheVote said? There was more talk about the whackery of the campaign than the election but apparently that’s still classed as a positive key performance indicator. Oh I got the word wrong. Sorry, let me try this is a Lucindkar accent: “Morketing, yaw”. There we go.

Anyways, the branez are now pictured below. Apparently the idea to put an emasculated hairless man just wearing tight underwear was decided by these guys as well as a fairly bland picture of a woman. Do the branez of Fine Gael honestly think a man showing some of his pubic area (also hairless) is a good image of masculinity or is attractive to a woman? Real mean have body hair. I doubt real people exist in the universe of any youth wing though if this is the carry-on.

If you wade through the childishness of some of their comments on you’ll see that these kids actually think that any publicity is good publicity. Noise is as good as volume and quality? Even sitting in a four wheeled bike looking like a gimp is good publicity?

Libertas are sooooo scared now. This is FinePower unleashed. Genie and bottle, Pandora and box. Even if Libertas secretly are the CIA. Oh you didn’t know that? Yeah, Libertas even have their own private jet whisking people from Dublin to Galway and back. Dec Force one. Waterboarding happens on the short flight using the complimentary Ballygowan fizzy water. But as the below photo shows, Team FinePower gets the last laugh.
