“An Irish Solution to an Irish Problem”

 

Before I say what I have to say I want to put some contact details and numbers up, and for anyone that because of the topic I am about to addresses finds themselves hurled back into time, a painful time that stripped them of their innocence, that allowed them to become prey for evil and malign bastards – I am so sorry.

***********************************************

Many of you having been carrying this pain, this anguish for many many years – you have lived your lives in the shadows, and tried to do whatever you could do to numb that terrible pain.

NOTHING that happened to you was your fault – NOTHING – you were a child – an innocent – those people who did this to you – May they Rot in Hell.

Ireland is and has been place that hides and connives with evil – THIS State for many many years threw its innocents to the wolves – wolves dressed in clerical garb. And this all happened in not so distant past.

THIS State allowed vicious evil men and women to abuse innocent children, mostly boys, but also girls, and fucking paid them to do it.

Then as those children finally escaped – those that survived – from this nightmare “childhood” threw them – some of them – literally out onto the streets. When those first brave souls – having survived that nightmare “childhood” somehow found the courage to reveal their nightmares – to stand up and say the truth of what had been done them – what did this State do?

It tried to protect these monsters – it tried to wash its hands of responsibility and complicity in the vileness, the evil, the malignancy that festered in this State for many many years.

No – not way back in the mists of time – not in some faraway time that no one who is living now doesn’t remember. In our lifetimes.

IN LIVING MEMORY. In the 1980’s and 1990’s. When those damaged and wounded souls started to come forward – I was there – I remember the horrors that began to emerge – how these damaged and wounded innocents were treated.

For those who did come forward they found themselves caught in another nightmare – a nightmare where THIS State failed them again.

Then the suicide rates started to climb – men who could no longer live with the pain of what had been done to them – gave up.

There are men living in this State NOW – who wake with nightmares, who try to numb the pain of what was done to them, with alcohol – with anything that help them forget – but they don’t forget.

Feminism isn’t “the cause” of the toxic roots of this State’s most egregious and evil deeds RELIGION is – RELIGION endorsed by, protected by and condoned by THIS STATE.

For decades this State connived with a poisonous and evil malign force – from the foundation of this State between 1916 – 1937 – THIS STATE embraced that toxic, malign and evil force and gave its adherents its innocent children to abuse, to harm, to dispose of, to damage.

Right up until the late 1970’s – for any child who found himself, and in some cases herself trapped in this nightmare – they would have entered adulthood in the 1980’s and 1990’s carrying the scars, the pain, the anguish of what was done to them.

When the first “women’s libbers” made their appearance onto the public stage in this benighted country in the early 1970’s – the vast majority of people in this country – both women and men REJECTED it – why would we need ANOTHER toxic doctrine, when we already had the most vile and evil one?

At first, there was an awareness raised of LEGITIMATE women’s rights issues – and yes – there were LEGITIMATE issues – women DID have unfair and biased laws and policies to contend with – LEGITIMATE issues that needed to be addressed – and in spite of what “feminism” would have you believe – they were – albeit reluctantly and albeit grudgingly – as this happened – the “women’s lib” movement faded away – became more or less irrelevant – except for a few – for a few nasty and indoctrinated women – this wasn’t good enough – so they began “importing” those who would and could make sure that as we struggled to shake off one toxic vile and evil doctrine – another one was ready to takes its place – another one that with determination and a concentrated and focused campaign began to infect and infest our state – WITH yet again, the connivance of THIS State.

What was and is to my mind, looking back at that period a horror show– the 1980’s and 1990’s – was watching two opposing and equally vile and evil doctrines vying for supremacy in the hearts and minds of Irish people – as the horrors of the results of one toxic vile and evil doctrine were revealed – another one waited in the wings to take over.

We exchanged one cult for another – one religion for another – one set of poisonous “beliefs” for another.

We sent our own to be “trained” in the tenets of this new toxic doctrine – to the US – to the UK – to Canada – and they came back – armed with the tools they needed to begin their work – and as with history – a convergence of events created the absolute perfect environment for them and this new toxic doctrine to take root, to spread and to solidify its position as the “new religion”

The Celtic Tiger started to roar – all of a sudden – we had arrived – now the time was ripe for this “new religion” to step up and start manufacturing “grievances” to start demanding “funding” and boy did they ever get it – millions and millions of Euros were poured into “Women’s Programmes” millions and millions of Euros were “up for grabs” – I know – I was there – I worked in adult education – I worked on some of these programmes – and no – my preference was to work with men – because it didn’t take long for me to realise that women – women were – obnoxious – and now they were encouraged to be even MORE obnoxious – more greedy and grasping – all of a sudden – this STATE was awash with “victims of the patriarchy” you know when was the first time I heard that phrase? 1986.

The first time I heard this? “women have been oppressed for centuries by all men”? Around 7/8 years or so later – you who said it? Germaine bloody Greer – you know what my reaction was? Oh fuck off you dozy twat.

Feminism replaced Catholicism in this State as the “religion of choice” FOR women – feminism did what it has always done – it hijacked a LEGITIMATE civil rights movement and imposed its own toxic doctrine ON that movement till there was nothing left of that original and LEGITIMATE movement – it happened gradually – it happened in fits and starts – and it took till the late 1980’s early 1990’s for it to have its claws deeply embedded enough into not just the consciousness of the people of this State, but into every policy area, every government department, every civil society organisation and “charity”.

THAT is the “History of Feminism” in Ireland – THAT is the “back – story” to the CAUSES of so many problems, so many “issues” so many layers of Human Rights abuses IN Ireland.

We are not dealing with the toxic fallout of ONE “religion” we are dealing with the toxic fallout of ironically, two opposing but equally nasty, equally vile, equally malign forces.

For a very brief period in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s there was an overlap – as these two toxic doctrines vied for supremacy – and we all know which one emerged “the winner”

THAT is why – when it comes to “fighting feminism” IN Ireland – it is too simplistic to say that “feminism is the cause of all our problems” it is beyond ignorant and ill-informed to try and impose either an American model or even a UK model of “men’s rights activism” onto this complex and multilayered mess IN Ireland.

Neither of those countries ever allowed RELIGION to dictate – the workings of The State – neither of those countries ever would have allowed its Head of State to be hauled before a bloody bishop – Charles McQuaid – if you’re interested – and TOLD what “Government Policy” was acceptable to that RELIGION, and have that government comply.

Nor would Canada or Australia – THAT is why “fighting feminism” or fighting the toxic influence of feminism IN Ireland – requires that you know your bloody history – you understand and acknowledge the more complex, more multi-layered CAUSES and factors that operate in and have operated IN Ireland.

Feminism isn’t our only problem – our fucking history is our problem – feminism is a factor.

    Anja, As someone who is both personally and presently fighting the intransigence of the UK Criminal Justice system in order they take action against the abuser of my own children, it is bewildering how many times I’ve been assured that this evil “is taken very seriously indeed” yet they want to do nothing about it despite the overwhelming evidence.
    In my experience, Feminism protects females at every turn.
    As you say, children’s lives are, at best, of secondary interest. Cast to the wolves.
    May I add that the “One in Four” charity name sends shivers down my spine as this is based on the ubiquitous and odious Feminist Mantra of abuse (ONLY against females).
    I note that the charity you refer to does not appear to have that hidden feminist agenda.
    I ponder, therefore, why they chose such a foul name for a platform or good?
    A mistake, an oversight, a deception… or perhaps it has simply morphed from its original intentions and now has become respectable and supportive, despite the “Brand” it chose as a name.

      I agree with you totally that feminism “protects females – including female abusers of children” absolutely.

      Has created a toxic and vile paradigm that turns a blind eye to the abuse of children by females – and peddles this malign doctrine with the sole purpose of maintaining its grip on the levers of power.

      With regard to the One in Four charity here in Ireland – I will of course delve deeper into its inner workings – so far I have found nothing that rings alarm bells for me – but – I will probe deeper.

      This is the statement that the Irish One in Four has posted on its website:

      Our vision & work

      One in Four professionally supports men and women who have experienced sexual violence, many of them during childhood. Our aim is to reduce the incidence of sexual abuse by intervening in key areas of the cycle of abuse. We do this through psychotherapy, advocacy and prevention services.

      Why we exist

      In Ireland research has shown that one in four children (27%) will experience sexual abuse before the age of 18. Despite well publicized scandals and reports, many Irish people remain unable to respond to this problem and the long term damage it creates individually and at societal level. Our determined aim is to change this.

      Statistics source material:

      SAVI Report, The Ferns Report , The Ryan Report, The Murphy Report

      Our vision

      One in Four’s vision is an Irish society where children are safe from the threat of sexual abuse. We want Ireland to move from a society where one in four is sexually abused, to a society where nobody is abused.

      Our ethos

      One in Four gives voice to the people who have experienced sexual abuse and provides a space that by its very existence challenges feelings of shame, isolation and self blame. The passion to protect future children drives us day to day and we work to the Children’s First Guidelines.

      Our work

      From our Dublin offices we support individuals, families and groups with expert and specialised psychotherapy. One in Four’s team of skilled and knowledgeable advocates support people dealing with the practical aspects of the aftermath of abuse, e.g. accessing the criminal justice system, child protection services. The aim of our client centred services is to bring people from surviving life to living life.

      Our work in prevention covers campaigning, offender treatment and public awareness. Our team of psychotherapists works to protect children by running individual and group offender programmes.

      Who we work with

      Our service users are men and women who have experienced sexual abuse. The context of the abuse is widespread as reflected by our 2010 therapy clients: familial (45%), clerical and institutional (27%), community (19%), professionals (7%), strangers (2%).

      Charity history

      One in Four was established as a charity in Ireland in 2002. Set up by Colm O’Gorman, it started out as a public voice for people abused in clerical and institutional settings and provided therapy. Since then, as more people have come forward for help the range of clients and the required services have expanded. We now run a wide range of therapy programmes (individual, group, family, couples and prevention treatment), and an increasingly busy advocacy service, often providing vital support during the criminal justice journey from initial reporting through to trial.

      Status

      One in Four Ireland is a registered charity (CHY 15289) with offices in Dublin, Ireland.

      Edit:My apologies – the links to these reports didn’t “transfer” when I copied and pasted the text into the post – here are those links – with a note – that the link to the Ferns Report on the One in Four Website appears to be broken – but I accessed another source which gives the complete report.
