Charlie Flanagan should not have banned such an obvious idiot as that American preacher from Ireland without even giving a precise reason on the banning order. Flanagan today preaches “Ireland of the Welcomes” – even for dangerous terrorists who are not likewise checked and banned as the Baptist preacher was. We feel that this is a weakness of Flanagan, that he is so contradictory in his utterances. His father, Oliver J. Flanagan, the notorious anti-semite and pro-nazi was just as indiscriminate as to where he would turn and who or what he would blast next in the Dail.
So Flanagan can’t talk. We recall probably the worst day in Irish politics when Flanagan’s horrific father, Oliver J Flanagan, condemned the election of Ben Briscoe as Lord Mayor of Dublin on the floor of Dail Eireann – on account of the fact that he was Jewish!
Could it not be argued that Flanagan’s Dad should have been banned from Ireland for racist anti-semitic speech in Dail Eirea
