RTE Backing a Dead Horse?

While much of Europe is taking steps to curb and reduce migration, and doing their best to reduce the amount of spending on NGOs and on Migrant's benefits, the Irish Government and their national PR broadcaster RTE are pummelling the country with blanket coverage of good news stories about Syrian Illegal Migrants Refugees.

Just this morning we have Sean O'Rourke who many used to see as a serious journalist do a good 30 minutes of drivel about the only (alleged)Syrian Migrant who was housed in Ireland by the Red Cross after they pleaded for people to stick a migrant in their spare room.

What a load of puke inducing blather! Why are RTE putting so much effort into the wrong horse in this race when the rest of Europe appears to have woken up to their own folly in allowing Arab/Islamic migrants free reign in Europe?

Is this a good use of Taxpayers and licence payers money?

FG FF SFLab Greens etc all back this.

How many seats do they have in the dail?

Unfortunately this is what the public voted for.

Can the mods come up with some form of sensible quota limit for anti immigration topics
Maybe 10 a day?

Or maybe create a separate forum for such
Maybe call it the "I'm not a racist but..." forum

And even the independents and PBP would sell out everything they stand for to get a Dail seat! How would baldy Murphy feel if his partner was quizzed about her entry to Ireland and her support for many many migrants through her work as a solicitor/lawyer?

Have you seen numbers killed in Syria?

Are you seriously suggesting that most of them are not genuine refugees?

Because, given the facts on the ground, that assertion is either absurd or unethical. Probably both.
I am saying that the Syrians are Genuine but that due to no checks or proper vetting we in Europe are getting every criminal from the middle-east and Africa and very few Syrians!

There was a clip on RTE showing one of the migrant boats and the African who could not speak arabic as they were from some African colony all had "Syria" written on their hands lest they forget where the NGOs had told them to claim was their homeland!

Clearly they are not genuine refugees. Ireland does not have a border with Syria. Genuine refugees do not tramp through 10 or 11 other safe countries before settling in Welfare land. Once they are safe they have found refuge. If they give up that refuge they are by definition not refugees.

Most of the Syrians have been relocated to here by the State.

The fella on the radio this morning was a credit to his nation and family. A better person than the racist OP.

Scrap the PRAVDA tax. Let the Montrose Millionaires live off their already considerable accumulated largesse.

And give the working families their money back.

The PRAVDA tax, for pumping out propaganda, that people are increasingly ignoring is an insult to the public.

If they have refugee status then they're not illegal migrants.

There are stories of people begging for money in Dublin with a sign saying Syrian refugee, in the most cases these people are not Syrians as my Mum tried to to speak to one of them and it was clear that the woman was not a Syrian.

We have almost 300 Albanian asylum seekers in Direct Provision here at huge expense to the country. Albania is an official accession country, Albanians have no legal entitlement to asylum. Albanians are turned back at every country they try to seek asylum in yet we even brought one in from Greece because she claimed asylum after having a row with her boyfriend, or so she said. Now she's being housed in Lisdoonvarna. What in the fookety fook is going on?

Any election material to back that assertion?

That's not what most people believe asylum centres are about.
Is the EU about to allow membership to a country from which we're accepting political refugees?
