One point.
The libel law in this country has totally stifled any investigative journalism for a long time.
So things are reduced to the current state.

Sorcha Pollak is daughter of Andy Pollak, an immigrant Jew to Ballymena who at some point got jiggy with Doireann Ui Bhriain who presented Eurovision the year Bucks Fizz whipped their skirts off in the RDS and produced the boul Sorcha.

I have no comment to make other than this: They'll miss us when we're gone.
Makes sense. Sorcha has bounced around from one expensive university to another. You dont need brains to get in, just lots of cash.

You support paedophilia?
About as much as Roderic allegedly "supports" it.

It's a modern day witch-hunt, Hans. Basically because the man is gay.

It's no coincidence that the the majority of the potbellied overweight gimps strutting around like their fat is muscle on the videos of the event are probably homophobes.

It's no surprise that you would find so many bigots, catholic fundamentalists, and the like in this mob.

As Justine well sets out, the evidence for the pretext of this witch-hunt is utterly, utterly laughable. But does that matter? No, the mob cry is all the justice you need.

You know your little rejoiner there, "You support pedophilia?" is typical of ideologically-driven, cult-like behaviour in the way it seeks to demonise and excommunicate dissent. "You must be a pedophile, then" etc.

Another problem, Hans, with many of your merry band of internet warriors (coalescing in these type of mobs and witch-hunts) is that they would be excessively suspicious of other men's feelings about children precisely because they themselves have been spending too much time watching horrible internet porn and degrading their own sexual instincts and capacity for normal adult sexual relations.

Of course they need to look to themselves first, before condemning others, but isn't it ever the way.

This is not to get into analysing O'Gorman's position, which may well go too far. But to characterise it as "supporting pedophilia" is just too stupid for words.

There are also many echoes of previous pedophile hysterias whipped up by tabloids, not just in the UK, in the US you had say the McMartin preschool scandal in the 80's, the more recent Pizzagate, and Putin's Russia is absolutely rife with extreme pedophile hysteria. The common denominator always seems to be right-wing demonology.

Now Ireland to its shame is going on a round of it.

I wonder much role the Troubles played in getting journalism in the Republic of Ireland into the sewer it is in now?

Republicans were always the bad guys. The golden circle were terrified of the south getting involved. History was rewritten to down play British atrocities. The leaders of 1916 were regularly denounced. We are seeing this being played out again. Gangs of Africans are attacking Irish children but it's the indigenous people who are the bad guys. Irish history is being rewritten so that we now are the beneficiaries of "white privilege". Google tells people that Irish slavery is a myth. British aristocrats who owned slaves are now Irish.

McCarthys bias in favour of O Gorman is beyond dispute, on reading her article.

Of course none of her cohort chose to report who O Gorman was consorting with. None of the churnalists bothered themselves to report O Gorman's relationship with Tatchell.

The MSM refusal to refer to the O Gorman Tatchell relationship stinks.

Instead civic minded posters such as Kershaw here had to research and compile the evidence and bring that evidence to the attention of the general public. Doing the job which churnalists should have done.

It was only after the evidence was highlighted here that the facts of the O Gorman Tatchell connection became more known publicly.

McCarthy is part of the problem.

RUBBISH , There was a gay speaker Paddy Manning condemning the government and their paedophilia program for the sexualisation of small children at the Dail on Saturday, but bet you weren't there or haven't a clue about that.

No speaker there stated that Roderic "supported" paedophilia but that he ADMIRED and was pictured at a Dublin Pride march WELCOMING Tatchell specifically ( all the photo evidence is there) a leading British paedophile campaigner which is FACT and TRUTH.
Justine has fallen down a long road from being an objective and impartial commentator on the Irish political scene, she's basically a literary prostitute for several years now.
The rest of your outpourings here are just your own fanciful opinions, and very misled too, might I add.

None of those you mention involved the country's MINISTER FOR CHILDREN.

Indeed you are right that there were a few Nutters there , mostly from the National Party with their noose signs, who were more injurious to the veracity and the justice of the event than the unfortunate ANTIFA delegation.

The vast majority of the huge attendance were concerned young parents, and rightly so.

@MichaelMcGrath I respect Paddy Manning but he's a bit cracked at times. He's also the token gay of the right.

Anyway, you've moved the goal-posts here. Can you outline for us the Irish government's "paedophilia program for the sexualisation of small children". What's in this program exactly? Or can you refer me to the relevant policy documents? Cheers.

And the discussion threads on this forum are certainly talking about Roderic being a "paedophilia sympathiser" and worse, and I know many of its members were in attendance at this event.

Neither is Tatchell "a leading British paedophile campaigner", that is not "facts and truth", it is hyperbole. What he is actually guilty of was much more honestly described by Justine McCarthy in her article, in truth.

There may well be unsavoury elements to be found in all this if you follow the dirt-digging logic that Justine McCarthy well outlined. However quite clearly these elements are being duplicitously and wildly amplified by a right-wing agenda that has scant heed for either verity or justice.

Everybody is laughin at Tatchellite McCarthy deliciously overplaying her hand.

Everybody is also laughin at the Ziomatrix getting caught with Weinstein, Epstein & Maxwell- just a warm up. :ROFLMAO:

We are the World- untermensch...

Look, I could never communicate properly with a mind that describes Justine McCarthy as honestly describing anything as she is the pamphleteer of the ultra liberal classes of Ireland.

The fact is that there is a group mostly centred in the Green party, British and Irish, that wants to foist the Sexualisation of small children on society for mistaken Reichian purposes, based on their own childhoods that were confused because they were gay feeling that they would be criticised at every hands turn as straight kids were not ( like Roderic) . That's my own humble attempt at the psychology of the matter.

Sorry but I have to head on contradict you - Tatchell is considered, even by those in the Centre and not just on the Right, as the leading exponent of paedophilia in these islands - and Roderic is suspected of being a disciple of his, and when it comes to children in Ireland suspicion of paedophilia is enough for a necktie party.

This alone will destroy the Greens for a decade. And it won't be because the minority Right opposes them, it's because the Centre will not hold for them with transfers. And this won't go away in one or two or even five years. The Greens will now be seen as a party risky on account of pushing paedophilia based on the Sexualisation of Small Children.

OK? As the Yanks say, have a nice day.

ANTIFA themselves have admitted publicly in an official statement that they want this, based on the anti-fascist teachings of Wilhelm Reich.
