Some of you may notice I'm getting a hard time these days from a number of trolls who claim to be from #Ballinamore (maybe they are, maybe they're not.) They all accuse me of lying, but none of them can identify a single lie I've told. There is a reason for that: I haven't lied.
WHY WOULD I LIE? Why would I do this to myself? The place that was always my sanctuary feels safe no more. Why? Not because I've lied, but because I expressed an opinion some bullies didn't want expressed. Not because I lied, but because I told some truths they didn't want told.
You people know better than they do, this is not my first rodeo. I've been down this path before & I'd much rather not do it again, but I've told the truth & I'm not standing down from that. So watch them & notice how absolutely none of them can identify a single lie I've told...

The Open Borders ‘anti-racism’ Cult have caused the rise of the *Four Roish*#Oughterard #Ballinamore #Achill . How? By erecting borders and thinking like racists.
They’ve tried very hard to put a blanket (border) over the whole asylum seeker/Direct Provision issue. They’ve been lobbying Government for hate speech law so what people are allowed say and therefore think about the asylum seeker/Direct Provision issue
will be contained strictly within the bounds (border) of legislation.

They’ve never met them but the limits (border) of their ideology sensed trespassers when the people of #Oughterard #Ballinamore #Achill protested.

So, this is going to be a long one. I'm going to powerlevel a bit and talk about where I live, my family history some and what's going on and why I'm absolutely disgusted and angry right now.
I've lived a lot of places over the years. 3 countries. Something like 40 some odd towns, cities, villages. This is not unusual in my family. At last count, I'm like the 4th generation who has migrated. When I moved to Ireland though I actively avoided where my family is from.
Why? I dunno. It seemed so cliche? I didn't want to be that girl. But, here I am, a mere 40ish miles from where we first left, where we kept coming back to. Where some of us still leave, with less and less of us over the years coming back.
