#Incoming- One of the first #fakenews propaganda stories was concocted by the British in Ireland. It’s caught on camera and emanates from Waterford 1920-courtesy of PATHÉ news during the Tan war. This was for a British audience at home in Blighty #FalseFlagStory...Stayed tuned..
"No One Can Insult Are Flag" screams the caption of events around Armitice Day 1920 in Dungarvan, Waterford. Shown in cinemas across Britain it encapsulates for their home audience a false narrative about Ireland-a sort of modern day Pathe news Cambridge Analytica. What happened?
1/Basically-Dungarvan Castle had an Irish Tricolour flying from it at the time, the area was a strong area for the IRA activity, they had the better of the Brits on the ground war so the crown forces wanted to show a bit of bullying muscle to the locals, show them who’s boss if -
2/ if you like. The Brits hatched a plan to storm up the town in the morning and slap a few locals about and grab a couple of them to go up and take down the tricolour flying defiantly over the town and it’s occupiers. After this was done they brought the flag onto the barracks-
3/ within no time they appeared with a huge Union Jack from the barracks and again marched up the town again looking for some hapless locals to make a fool of and send a lesson to the local IRA and this stage the #fakenews story. They found two innocent local men and with the
persuasive jolt of a bayonet they tied the flag around there necks and paraded through the town as they made their way back up the to castle and hoist the union flag.(The first two locals who were made to take down the tricolour in the first place refused to hoist the union flag
5/ one was called Dan Fraher, yes you guessed Fraher Field GAA stadium in Dungarven named after him-but that’s another story) so after humiliating the local lads for the Pathé news reel and staging the scenes they sent a message to the local ‘Paddies’ and ofcourse to those in
6/Blighty that this is how we treat those rebellious Irish who dare disrespect our flag by ripping it down from its pole above on a castle belonging to HMG, they also made it clear that if anyone feared take the union flag down they’d be shot dead as the barracks covered the
End- Castle with a machine gun. So a staged event to feed an empire loving audience at cinemas at the expense of all truth and reality was born...

Today the Irish tricolour flys proudly and free over Dungarvan Castle.
#Finally .. thanks to David Toms and other sources that verified and dug up this research... here’s the nitty- gritty, enjoy.. 🇮🇪 thedustbinofhistory.wordpress.com/2014/11/06/no-…
#Note—Discovered that the two Local men forced to parade around Dungarvan by British troops with a British flag tied around their necks were later badly beaten and dumped outside the town In badness later on-as part of the message to locals!
