Anti-Islamisation group Pegida, which was founded in Germany, will formally announce an Irish branch at a protest rally in Dublin next weekend. It is among a series of Europe-wide demonstrations against the growth of Islam in Europe.
Peter O'Loughlin of Identity Ireland confirmed that Pegida Ireland would be unveiled at a rally on February 6th in Dublin. He said Ireland would become the 15th country to establish a branch of the organisation.
"Pegida [Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of the Occident, in German] is making international headlines," Mr O'Loughlin said. "It is giving the people of Europe a chance to speak out and have a voice against the absolutely disastrous policies of the EU and of the German government and the various puppet governments around Europe."
Mr O'Loughlin, who will be running for Identity Ireland in Cork North Central, was speaking at a press conference where he introduced Pegida UK co-ordinator and former English Defence League founder Tommy Robinson.
Mr Robinson said he was delighted to have an opportunity to warn people in Ireland about the dangers of radical Islam. He said Ireland should look to Britain to see the mistakes made by allowing in large numbers of Muslims who fail to integrate.
"We have polarised communities, we have segregated communities, we have Islamic ghettoes -- we have an epidemic of jihad rape gangs targeting English girls . . . these are the realities which are on their way to Ireland."
Mr Robinson, whose mother is from Dublin, said when he founded the English Defence League six years ago, British politicians said he was extremist; now they recognised the dangers posed by radical Islam.
"The majority of the world accepts this mindset -- which we called Isis and which is a literal interpretation of Islam -- is a danger to us all. You have a population of 4.5 million people, you cannot sustain open borders, you have to close your borders as does the rest of Europe."
Mr O'Loughlin, who won 930 votes for Identity Ireland in the Carlow-Kilkenny byelection last year, signed a pledge committing Identity Ireland to join anti-migration organisation Fortress Europe before Dan O Loinsigh read a statement on behalf of Pegida Ireland. He claimed Identity Ireland has 400 members in Ireland.
"Despite the obvious chaos engulfing Europe, our liberal leaders bury their heads in the sand and their outright refusal to engage in practicality or common sense is nothing short of treasonous," he said. "We hope to give the Irish people the opportunity to voice their concerns in a peaceful, proactive manner against mass migration, EU economic madness and Islamic extremism."
If you want to be on this right wing, monarchy, paleolibertarianism and nationalism ping list, but are not, please let me know. If you are on it and want to be off, also let me know. This ping list is not used for Catholic-Protestant debates.
put me on it.
I’m not Irish, but this rally has my eyes smiling.
I think that after the rape of Cologne things are beginning to change in Europe. At least I hope so.
Truth, Justice, and the American Way.
“If you want to be on this right wing, monarchy, paleolibertarianism and nationalism ping list...”
What is a right wing, monarchist, paleolibertarian nationalist? I’ve failed to keep up with Irish politics. Is it a good idea to send them guns and ammo or simply trade sheperd’s pie recipes? Seriously...fill in the blanks and inform me.
I think I might like this... add me, please.
What would be the American version of Pegida and UKIP? Pagida? USIP? Hmmm. Must keep thinking.
Thanks. I’ve passed this on to the County Kerry side of the family
Right wing usually refers to the understanding that a healthy society goes by a number of rules, whether codified in law or not, and whether democratically popular or not. For example, no amount of voting and legislating can redefine moral sexual behavior, or abolish private property, or muzzle the voice of established religion.
Monarchism really comes in two flavors: in a country that has a legitimate monarch (like for example, in France) that would be support of him or her, and generally the support of the institutions of the crown. In a country like ours where there is no legitimate monarch, monarchists simply point out that eventually, over great length of time perhaps, we as a nation shall produce monarchic institutions alongside our democratic institutions; no American monarchist that I know of calls for a royalist revolution.
Paleolibertarianism is a form of libertarianism that conforms with the original Austrian school of economics, and values individual rights over the needs and desires of a government. It is, however, also in opposition to moral libertinism that also calls itself libertarianism.
Nationalism is the understanding that a healthy society is a national society, where the institutions have a distinctly national character; where national cohesion exists in the culture and possibly also in the laws. More specifically, the problem of public square: real estate not owned privately, — should be resolved in the sense that it is an asset that belongs to the nation and not automatically available to anyone wishing to express himself.
Of course we should arm the Irish. Also the English, the Germans, the French and ourselves. We don’t have governments that would protect us any more.

Thanks for reading. Tell them I said hi.
Please add me.
Thank you for the detailed response. You’re a scholar and a gentleman.
I think a lot of eyes (and minds) were opened. Even the many of the nuts on lib websites like DummyUnderground were dismayed.
Done, thank you.
