Not an Irish Republican born in 1897. He would think you were freaks. He wouldn't want to be flying an international rainbow flag used by British cultural imperialists either.

Certainly not devout Catholic Sean South. And why would a Irish Patriot want the Irish to become an ethnic minority in their own country?
Shinners have to pay homage to the flag of the SanFranciso ass bandits. Indeed make one of that dieased lot a Senator, to prance around inhis speedos for the delight of posit load donors. Though fair play, i have no respect for the free state's senate either.

His livestreams are a bit too long and drawn-out for my liking but however misguided his fixation on America may be.. to my mind that might best be reguided to a more focused and outspoken form.

What does he stand for?! I still don't really know.
The guy is trying to break the USA market. I think the guy is a chancer and he sees it as a chance to make a few bucks and a sort of career out of it. He only spoke about Islam or immigration only up to a few years ago. Where was he when all the raping that went down in the UK and Germany? He's youtube channel is around since 2009 and only became political after trump. That's a red flag for me

Your first paragraph sums it up well. I was so relieved when I found the Irish Patriot's stream. It was like a raft of common sense in a sea of madness. But I can't listen to his streams anymore either.

Maybe the topic (Irish Nationalism) doesn't suit the forum of livestreams, it gets too repetitive. Maybe a more general Irish news stream with a nationalist bent could sustain interest. At one stage GT was doing 2 shows a day, what was there to talk about at that frequency!

I still admire these guys' bravery to put their head above the parapet but I don't know how sustainable talking about US politics, 5G, and the New World Order is going to be for them. I think they'd be better off covering Irish news with a nationalist bias. That's why I read this forum.
You fail to understand that GT has a (paying) American audience he needs to take into account (ditto IP)

I'm sorry to say it but there isn't much in the way of "Irish nationalism" on video platform sites, YouTube or elsewhere

He's long gone from YouTube. He's Odyssey streams are sporadic and a total mess. There's no way he has a paying audience nowadays.

Yeah he does work out and the routine of exercise seems to be there. But he does the weed and drink and has been homeless during the boom years. Not a role model. Yes getting out of bed and sticking to routine is good.
People have their ups and downs. So I'd say a person striving to turn their lives around deserves some credit.

So it's about a paying audience then and not nationalism. We agree on something

Good ol' Rowan. Like Herman Kelly, Rowan and I have been friends on facebook for several years now, although I might have un-friended him. I can't remember for certain. Anyhow, Rowan has a lot in common with the folks at RTE, The Irish Times and each and every media outlet across the length and breadth of Ireland (not to mention Gemma O'Doherty), which is that Rowan's never mentioned me, nor supported my right of return.
The guy isn't a nationalist. He is a chancer

You understand how avatar and profile pics work? like they are not literally you. For example i am not really Theobald Wolfe Tone.
Use this handy guide.

Thank you for pointing this out. Some people don't have the congenial capacity.

One of the problems I notice with the Irish Anti Establishment/Patriot/whateveryou'rehavingyourself scene (and I'm as guilty as the next person) is its all very negative coupled with a certain amount of anti intellectualism.

When you look at the American dissident scene it's so full of vigour, vitality, youthful energy, positivity, humour and intellect.
All of the aforementioned is very attractive to the youth and thus a lot of the youth flock to it.
They promote good health both of body and mind, honing your intellect, reading books, outdoor activities etc and stand in sharp contrast to the physical ugly, intellectually bankrupt and physically weak neurotics that make up the Antifa/Progressive left types.

In saying that, being Yanks and somewhat lacking in a genuine 'culture' means they're free to latch on to any type of cultural and historical strands they like such as Ancient Greeks, European paganism, Catholicism the Orthodox Church and any type of Philosophical movements.

Keith Woods is the exception to the rule here but even he has a certain amount of typically Irish negativity and a kind of snideness and tendency toward mockery about him.

We in Ireland for example are burdened with the negative associations people have with Catholicism so its very difficult to promote Catholicism in terms of vitality and positivity whereas Americans are to a large degree unburdened by this, so you see something like the burgeoning 'Tradcath' movement amongst the youth there and this I believe would be very difficult to achieve over here.

Another major problem I think we have here in Ireland is that the gatekeepers of our history and culture, the Professors and academics of History, mythology, archaeology etc are hopelessly woke, feminists, progressives, Pseudo Marxists, hyper materialists and they are essentially destroying the essence of our nationhood and our culture, they're consumed with ethnic self loathing and are completely devoid of romanticism, mysticism etc
The Americans are free to lose themselves in romanticism and mysticism which again promotes vitality whereas in Ireland it's an embarrassment to consider ourselves and our culture in a romantic and especially mystical sense.

The Irish also (as we all know) have a tendency to 'talk bad about each other' and we see it here on PI all the time with people dissing Gemma, The National Party, Grand Torino, Dave Cullen etc and this is ultimately very self defeating combined with the fact that we always fight amongst ourselves.

A Well written and thoughtful piece.
