Another is Justice Minister Charlie Flanagan and his denunciation of George Hook. https://irishsalem.blogspot.ie/2017/10/justice-minister-charlie-flanagan-and_3I do know that I am a nobody in this world and never will be, making my comment very unimportant to the Irish people but I will make it.
For the last ten years I have worked between Ireland and Europe, I am currently back in Dublin now working on a project in the city.
We are living in the times of greed and without God, today I'm ashamed to be Irish.madness i am renting privately 5 years and i can't get mortgage I'm carer i do not get rent supplement nothing and i am on housing list with my dependent son this just mad if people borrowed and now can't pay the house you loose it simple not fair the y get to stay in dream homes I am disgusted that a totally fair comment/observation spoken by George Hooke recently has been hijacked by the feminist sisterhood and used to bully an excellent presenter off the air.
George Hook entered a proviso in his initial condemnation of rape and confirmed that the people who have been convicted of this crime should be made face the full rigours of the law.
On Monday 12th September 2017, Newstalk 106-108 fm kicked off its new schedule which includes a host of newly-appointed full-time presenters including Colette Fitzpatrick, Paul Williams, Alan Quinlan, Sarah Mc Inerney.
The new schedule sees a number of changes for existing presenters including a longer broadcast of the Pat Kenny Show from 9am-12noon and George Hook move to the 12-2pm slot for his new show, ‘High Noon’.
We listened to the programme and it was evident to us that George Hook was simply stating the facts as they exist and most certainly did not condone the rape in any way.
Freedom of speech should be applauded and not censored.We are all obliged to assess our surroundings from time to time and avoid going where we feel our personal safety is likely to be at risk. The management of Newstalk will show their metal or lack of it in how they face up to or cave in to the bullying tactics of the feminists pressure group.My family and I are totally disappointed and shocked at Newstalk for suspending George Hook.Nobody said at any point that it was the victims fault, but the simple fact is that there are nasty people out there in the big bad world and we should all be wary for our own good.The bleeding hearts and artists would love to live in a lovey dovey world, but it doesn't exist, unfortunately.
