Irish Leftists Blame Violence Against Women On Misogyny To Hide The Real Cause: Open Borders

Ireland’s rate of deadly violence against women could fall dramatically through sensible migration policy and other basic programs.

A 2022 report by RealClearPolitics confirmed what many Europeans had long suspected but could not prove because of data obfuscation by individual governments: Europe has a massive immigrant violent crime problem.

The 10-year data study showed that across the EU, “each one percentage point increase in immigrant population is associated with a 3.6 percent increase in the homicide rate.” In Germany, where police and politicians fiercely guard immigrant crime statistics, an academic study found that asylum applicants were responsible for a massive 10.4 percent rise in violent crime in Lower Saxony alone in 2015 and 2016, an apparent effect of Angela Merkel’s 2015 open-doors migration policy. It is a familiar pattern across Western Europe’s industrial hubs. In the first half of 2022, foreign nationals committed 70 percent of the violent robberies in Paris. Another academic study in Sweden found that in 2017, immigrants accounted for 73 percent of all cases of manslaughter, murder, and attempted murder.

To the residents of Ireland, however, the human carnage unfolding on the continent had been abstract. Traditionally protected from the dangers of mass unvetted migration due to being an economic backwater, the spectacular economic boom of the ’90s and early ’00s spurred a massive influx of migrants to such a degree that now more than 20 percent of the Irish population is foreign-born. In 2022, Ireland had its reckoning with migrant crime. Predictably, the government attempted to cover it up.

A Brutal Murder

On the afternoon of Jan. 12, 2022, Ashling Murphy, a talented musician and teacher, was set upon and murdered in brutal fashion. The 23-year-old was stabbed 11 times in the neck while walking along the bank of the Grand Canal in Tullamore, County Offaly. The savage nature of the attack and the fact that it occurred in broad daylight sent shockwaves through the country.

Three days after the murder, The Irish Times printed a piece quoting “an epidemic of femicide” and “a culture of misogyny” in Ireland. Similarly, The Guardian asked if Murphy’s murder would change Ireland’s “culture of misogyny.” National soul-searching had begun, and the narrative that emerged was that Ireland’s men were to blame.

Dozens of vigils were held across the nation, promoted by the Women’s Council of Ireland (NWC). Speaking to a crowd of thousands outside of government buildings in Dublin, the head of the council, Orla O’Connor, stated, “The death of Ashling Murphy must be a watershed moment to end violence against women.” Helen McEntee, Ireland’s minister for justice, tweeted, “I am working to ensure we have a society that does not tolerate this any longer.”
