Political propaganda disguised as academic comment seeks to shut down immigration concerns – Gript

The increasing unease felt by communities around the country regarding the consequences of uncontrolled mass immigration has led to all sorts of actors rallying to the cause of diversity and multi-culturalism – though preferably not on their manor.

Following years of censorship and even bullying, as noted by Laois Offaly TD Carol Nolan in the Dáil yesterday, immigration and in particular the influx of young men from countries where there are no wars or recognised human rights crises has become a key political issue. And it is right to stress that it is political because it highlights the extent to which the state media and state funded NGOs have taken a side in that debate.

This has extended now to the education sector. Yesterday, the official Twitter account of Dublin City University reposted a piece the state broadcaster RTÉ had published by Professor James Kelly and a DCU post graduate student Kirsty Park on how references to the English and Scottish plantations of Ireland were being misused by the “far right” in their arguments against accommodation centres.
