(1/6) So there is a TON of disinformation going around today regarding a man named Pat Sweeney in Longford, who had his kids taken from him yesterday following a welfare call to Gardai indicating the children were in danger due to the man's mental health issues/aggression issues.
(2/6) This case has been disgustingly jumped on by the very small but active pocket of far right Disinfo spreading accounts active here in Ireland. Attempting to frame this as a "retaliation" for this man videoing Gardai breaking up an illegal gathering in a church recently.....
(3/6) This is a complete lie and another example of these craven scum jumping on an unrelated issue to push their agenda. They are taking advantage of a mentally unwell man & his turbulent home life broadcasting it to the world & it is just reprehensible. Make no mistake ......
(4/6) that man's kids wers taken from him because Gardaì received a credible call their welafre was in danger. The fact that he is 1 of these down the rabbit hole filming the Gardai types (also ranting about Muslims in that video) should tell you all you need to know about this..
(5/6) man & his true mental state & why Gardaì would find a welfare call for kid's safety to be genuine. The guy is not being "punished" for filming Gardai he is just a man in poor mental health who has made bad life choices probably due to having his mind filled with poison....
(6/6) from Facebook or here. THAT is why he is out filming Gardai in the 1st place, because the Internet told him to do it. That this man's private life breakdown is being hijacked/broadcast/reframed for political purposes by the usual scum and chancers is disgusting & shameful.
Just please be very very aware of highly emotionally evocative disinformation doing the rounds about this case. It's designed to shock you and overwhelm you emotionally and make you not think or question the specific incongruent details that keep jumping out about this story.
