the majesty of democracy

Media reports in the Republic of Ireland are already suggesting that Michael D Higgins is to be our new President.
I am frankly stunned.
This afternoon a lady millionairess Fianna Fail financier approached me in Quigleys Cafe, Newbridge, and announced: "Michael D is a good man. He'll be a good President."
I asked her what was good about him.
She said he had a long career and a solid track record.
I told her he was an atheistic, abortionist, Maoist who had spent his entire life supporting communist dictatorships around the world and that the only reason Irish people aren't generally aware of this is because our leftist anti Catholic media groups don't consider it's news.
I added that the only time his support for such dictatorships had wavered, was when those dictatorships occasionally showed signs of wishing to improve their relationships with the United States of America and the Free World.
The lady millionairess stared.
"Is Michael D really an atheist?" quoth she.
"He's an atheist, abortionist Maoist lifelong supporter of tyrannical communist regimes worldwide," I reminded her.
"But I'd say he's still a spiritual man," she inisted musingly.
"Would you?" I smiled. "Would you really? A spiritual atheist abortionist communist. And he's about to be our President. Well, I suppose we could consider self worship as a form of spirituality. Maybe we should register Michael D Higgins' worship of himself as a new religion. As a practicing Higginsist, he'll be entitled to tax exempt status of course. And extra holidays from his new job as President of Ireland in recognition of his religion's official feast days. Presumably his birthday would be one. The anniversary of his first dramatic proclamation at Galway University in favour of the extermination of unborn children might be another. The formal commemoration of his early denouncements of America and the State of Israel and democratic countries in general would be a third. And then a magnificent month long fast to mark his lifelong excoriation and detestation of Christianity. That'll be the Michael D Higgins religion version of Ramadan. And he'll have his own Christmas. Only it'll be called Marxmas. And his Easter will be Mao-ster. Oh this should be a hoot. Spirituality indeed. Come back Mary Kenny, all is forgiven."
"But he was good for the arts," proclaimed the lady millionairess Fianna Failer with a look of modest confusion on her finely moneyed features.
(Chiseled surely. - Ed note.)
"Listen," sez me. "In government Michael D Higgins did indeed lavish public money on various arts projects. He set up an Irish language television station using State funds and gave it to his friends in the Galway Irish language movement to run. They haven't stopped worshipping him since. And he established a film production company using State funds. Of course true to form, he established it in his political heartland of Galway and gave it to his friends to run. He used State funds to produce dozens of films. None of which ever made money. None of them. And all of which were publicly funded. And on all of which he was remunerated as Executive Producer. And hoo baby he provided generous funding to the Arts Council, did he ever, from State funds of course. And the Arts Council used that generous funding to publish a plethora of woeful turgid sub prime poetry books written by none other than Michael D Higgins. That was good for the arts alright. Then there was the woeful unreadable sub pornographic homsexualist Hot Press magazine which was edited by Michael D's friend Niall Stokes. Michael D ensured that there was any amount of State money available to keep Hot Press going without readers. And Michael D's friend ensured Michael D was a highly valued nay remunerated contributor to Hot Press, famous for his platitudinous hate speech against the Catholic Church. Sure we were all priveleged to finance Michael D's journalistic career through State money that Michael D was awarding to Hot Press to pay himself to write for Hot Press. Who on earth could cavil about such a noble sponsorship of the arts? And Michael D also ensured there was even more money to help Michael D's friend Niall Stokes and Hot Press establish an unvisited pop music museum which haemhorraged public cash right up until the moment it ceased to exist. And then Michael D established something he styled an Independent Radio and Television Commission, through which anyone wishing to set up a radio station would have to get official permission and governmental approval. And of course Michael D Higgins put Michael D's best friend Niall Stokes in charge of that commission. Safe pair of hands you understand. We couldn't risk any evil Catholics setting up radio or television stations. A good solid atheistic abortionist friend of Michael D Higgins like Niall Stokes could be trusted to never let that happen. And that was his sole qualification for the job. He was a friend of Michael D Higgins and he shared Michael D Higgins' contempt for the Catholic Church. A few good men indeed. Michael D and co. They've rode us rigid. We are farm animals to them. Oh Michael D Higgins was good for the arts alright. In the sense that he had absolutely no shame in rerouting limitless sums of public money to his friends and to himself whenever one or other or all of them wished to pose as artists."
The lady millionairess Fianna Failer looked a bit nonplussed.
It's hard for members of the corrupt kleptocratic Fianna Fail party to pretend they cannot abide corruption or kleptocracy.
She bid me adieu and beetled off.
She was polite enough about it.
But she had heard enough.
I was left alone to contemplate what my country had become.
A report on the satelite screen overlooking the cafe drew my attention.
A member of the Labour Party was eulogsing Michael D Higgins.
"Michael D didn't engage in negative campaigning," said the preening socialist atheist abortionist Labour Party apparatchik. "He didn't smear his fellow candidates. The Irish people have recognised this and rewarded him for it with the Presidency."
A wry smile coursed across my handsome features.
Michael D Higgins might be said to have absented himself from negative campaigning.
For whatever reasons.
But he had benefitted from it nonetheless.
For there can be no doubt, that if the Sinn Fein candidate Martin McGuinness hadn't exposed the then front runner fake Independent Sean Gallagher as a ringer for Fianna Fail, Michael D Higgins would have continued to languish down the polls.
There would have been no President Michael D Higgins.
I sat in the cafe contemplating the vicissitudes of fate.
It seemed to me that my countrymen had most shamefully traduced our country.
And there's more.
Michael D Higgins while championing Communist regimes around the world, had in the 1990's pronounced himself particularly close to the dictator of Nicaragua Danilo Ortega.
Danilo has recently reinvented himself as a democrat, winning an apparently fair election in his toilet of a nation.
But Danilo is more famous for having been denounced by his daughter in law, who claims he raped her throughout her childhood.
Michael D, for all his Mini Mouse sneering and malicious vilification in attempting to label the Catholic Church an abusing institution, has never quite been able to bring himself to repudiate his old pal child rapist Danilo.
And there's more.
The Irish people have just elected a President against whom allegations of personal sex abuse exist.
Incredibly the preponderance of Irish voters remain unaware of any such allegations.
How can this be?
I'll tell you.
The citizenry are unaware of the allegations because again these things aren't relevant to our atheistic anti Catholic media.
That is to say our atheistic anti Catholic media doesn't consider it relevant to report and question and analyse and pursue allegations of sex abuse against an atheistic abortionist anti Catholic Presidential candidate.
But the allegations were made and should have been answered by the candidate himself.
We all should know what they are.
In the past two weeks a radio presenter went to the police with allegations of sex abuse against Michael D Higgins.
One division of police refused to investigate the allegations since the allegations were what the police called "third hand."
This division of police maintained that since the radio presenter had not been abused himself by Michael D Higgins, and since his source had not been abused, that the allegations themselves were not worth investigation.
The radio presenter took the allegations to another police division.
This division went through the motions of listening to the complaint, recorded the allegation, and announced that there was nothing to it.
Their rationale for holding no further investigation, was again that the complaint had come to them "third hand."
The subject merited scanty paragraphs in the atheistic newspapers of our country.
It was barely mentioned on radio and television.
But the allegation should have been specified and the motivation of the radio presenter should have been clarified.
Was he running pass defence for Fianna Fail's ringer(s)?
Was he simply passing on a nonsense story he'd heard at the office bash?
What the hell is going on here?
The radio presenter's attempts to have Michael D Higgins investigated over sex abuse allegations foundered at the first frivolous hurdles presented by the police ten days ago.
Would Michael D be suing the radio presenter?
Would Michael D be suing the radio presenter's source?
Would Michael D care to clarify the origin of these allegations of sex abuse against him?
Like hell he would.
Oh sure folks, Michael D Higgins didn't get his hands dirty by fighting a negative campaign.
Give him credit for that if you think he deserves credit.
And the media, as is their wont, have failed to follow up in even the most cursory manner on the sex abuse allegations against him or even to question Michael D Higgins about the specifics involved.
And tonight Michael D Higgins is President of Ireland.
