Well, Ireland has officially gone overboard with their latest draconian move. The woke country has declared that uttering the phrase “Irish Lives Matter” is now deemed an official “hate crime” and is illegal.

What is happening to this world? Everyone’s gone mad.


Conservatives in the United States are outraged over police in Northern Ireland treating a series of anti-immigration signage in west Belfast as a “hate incident,” including a graffiti message that read, “Irish Lives Matter.”

The incidents in Northern Ireland, which is a part of the United Kingdom, follow less than a week after anti-immigration riots broke out in Dublin, Ireland. The violent protests, which Irish police blamed on “far-right” ideology, were sparked after an Algerian man was identified as the suspect behind the stabbing of five individuals, including three children, outside of an “all-Irish”, Gaelic-speaking school earlier that same day.

Signage in Belfast included a statement hung near Tildarg Avenue that said the community “will no longer accept the re-housing of illegal immigrants,” according to a report by the BBC. The poster also reportedly used an offensive term to refer to “other communities” as well, read the report.

Roughly a day later, a graffiti message that read “Irish Lives Matter” was also spray painted on the side of the Kennedy Centre in Belfast. The statement appears to be an adaptation of the phrase “All lives matter,” which gained popularity after the rise of the Black Lives Matter movement in the U.S. in 2020.

Andrew Matson, a spokesperson for the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI), said that law enforcement was “treating the matter as a hate incident,” according to a report from the British broadcast network ITV. Politicians in Northern Ireland also spoke up on the matter, including People Before Profit lawmaker Gerry Caroll, who said in a post to X, formerly Twitter, that there was “no place in our society for this kind of racist poison”.

How on earth can it be labeled “racist” or a “hate crime” to say “Irish Lives Matter,” when in the US, American tax dollars have been used to create large street art with the message “Black Lives Matter”?

It seems that, according to some, only black lives matter, while the rest of us are left to fend for ourselves, right?

Here’s a closeup of the images:

Don’t let anyone ever convince you that saying “Irish Lives Matter” is wrong or illegal. It’s not. This is precisely the kind of tyranny that needs to be challenged, with unwavering passion and a commitment to our patriotic values, here in the United States and beyond.

Ireland is, in the meantime, in the process passing a truly insane “hate speech” law.
