Dublin FG Councillor Brian Murphy has aired opinions on the migration crisis and Muslim Integration on social media which the FG hierarchy have taken issue. He pointed out facts about integration problems with Muslims in Belgium and France and also the Irish navies assistance of human traffickers.

He will know be dealt with internally by FG a "progressive party of the centre" for speaking the truth. FG was supposed to be a party of the right, it now appears to be a neo liberal, europhile snowflake party. FG has said the comments are "unacceptable" the Councillor has responded saying he speaks the truth.

Have we no free speech anymore? Are the baying pc mobs on social media now going to decide what opinions should be heard? It's an awful indictment of the lack of backbone in modern FG the way they folded so easy to the pc baying mob.

In fairness when was there ever a time FG weren't pro EU, all Irish political parties except SF who have completely backflipped on it have always been strongly in favour of the EU project.

What does being pro or anti Europe got to do with facts about Muslim integration? Is one "anti European" for pointing out facts ?

FG doesn't do tolerance or diversity - it's the Party way or the doorway. Just ask Lucinda Creighton.

Of course not i fully agree with this guys sentiment i was merely pointing out when you said FG now appears to be a Europhile party when it never wasnt a Europhile party thats all, but yes this is another case of the pc mob wanting to shut down free speech.

It's dumped its party of law and order stance to follow the current EU trend.

Speech has consequences. Freedom of speech doesn't require freedom from the consequences of what you say.

Many Islamic communities implement it behind closed doors they no links with local services or people it goes undetected. It is going on just not openly as numbers are small here for now, but growing very fast. We all know what will happen as the numbers get bigger the calls will get louder.
