Two Catholic Statues Decapitated in Ireland

Desecrations part of trend sweeping Europe.

Published

on

Two more Catholic statues have been decapitated, this time in Ireland, as part of a trend that is seemingly spreading across Europe.

The marble statue of Catholic Archbishop Patrick Leahy situated outside Thurles Cathedral of the Assumption in County Tipperary was decapitated and the head stolen.

The beheading was described as a “needless act of vandalism” by authorities.

“I have been moved by the reaction of the people of the town of Thurles, and throughout the diocese, arising from this act of vandalism,” said Archbishop O’Reilly. “It is my hope that the statue can be restored as soon as possible.”

Another statue located in a rural location was also beheaded.

The perpetrators remain unknown. Speculation that the culprits could have been gypsy travelers was dismissed by commentator Gemma O’Doherty, who said this was highly unlikely because many gypsies are Catholic.

As we have highlighted, these two latest incidents appear to be part of a trend that is spreading across Europe.

Back in April, a statue of the Virgin Mary was decapitated in a small French village, one of a deluge of anti-Christian attacks in France which numbered almost 900 in 2018 alone.

Later that month, a Catholic church in Glasgow, Scotland was trashed by vandals in yet another random act of desecration.

Two more Christian statues, one in Germany and one in Canada, were also beheaded in May.

Mexico: Furious Farmers Drag Mayor Through Streets For Not Delivering on Campaign Promises

Irate mob kidnaps politician.

Published

on

Furious farmers in Mexico dragged their local mayor through the streets from the back of a truck for not delivering on his campaign promises.

Jorge Luis Escandón Hernández, the mayor of Las Margaritas municipality in the state of Chiapas, had vowed to improve roads and bring drinking water and electricity to the rural community.

However, having failed to deliver, irate locals kidnapped him, tied him to the back of a pick-up truck and dragged him through the streets as a mob followed.

Shockingly, Hernández suffered no major injuries and subsequently appeared in the local square, vowing to press charges against the Santa Rita community he held responsible.

The gang who kidnapped the mayor also got into a fight with the police, injuring 10 people and leading to 11 arrests.

The area is dominated by left-wing social movements such as the ‘Zapatista Army of National Liberation’ (EZLN) and the ‘National Front for the Struggle for Socialism’ (FNLS).

Erdogan Threatens to Send Millions of Refugees to Europe Over EU’s Opposition to Syria Offensive

“We will open the gates.”

Published

on

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has threatened to send 3.6 million refugees to Europe if the EU doesn’t end its opposition to Turkey’s offensive in Syria.

On Wednesday, Erdogan announced the beginning of ‘Operation Peace Spring’ against Kurdish forces and ISIS terrorists in northern Syria.

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker responded by demanding Ankara “must cease the ongoing military operation” in the area.

“It will not work. And if Turkey’s plan is to create a security zone, do not expect funding from the European Union,” Juncker told the European Parliament.

Erdogan responded with a stark threat to flood Europe with refugees if the EU doesn’t back down.

“We will open the gates and send 3.6 million refugees your way,” Erdogan said during a speech to lawmakers from his AK Party.

This is not the first time Erdogan has threatened to use refugees as a weapon.

He has repeatedly invoked the threat, including back in 2016 when the EU tried to freeze talks on Turkey’s accession to the European bloc.

Hong Kong Government Considering Internet Ban to Stop Protests

Mimicking how Chinese authorities routinely block web to stifle unrest.

Published

on

The Hong Kong government is considering an Internet ban as the latest tactic to stop protests and riots that have been ongoing since June.

As violence continues to escalate, a ban on face masks that was put into effect before the weekend failed to keep thousands of demonstrators off the streets who defied the new law.

Now authorities are refusing to rule out blocking the Internet in an effort to stop protesters organizing.

“Currently, the government is considering all possible legal options to halt the violence, which couldn’t rule out an ‘internet ban’ in the future,” Ip Kwok-him, a member of the Executive Council of the local government, said today.

Any such Internet ban would be particularly controversial because Chinese authorities routinely block the web in parts of their territory that are experiencing unrest.

Restricting Internet access would be viewed as more direct interference from Beijing and is likely to stir further anger.

Meanwhile, a protester in Hong Kong explained how the demonstrations have moved way beyond the issue of an extradition bill and are now about the existential survival of freedom in the region.
