Conor McGregor Sounds Off On Criminals Who ‘Should Not Even Be In Ireland’

Open borders aren’t just making the U.S. less safe, they’re also linked to a troubling spike in violence and other types of crime across Europe where migrants are pouring into nations from Africa and elsewhere around the globe.

Although the details haven’t been confirmed, some early indicators suggest that could have been the impetus behind a savage knife attack on a group of people in Ireland by an assailant who targeted children.

UFC legend Conor McGregor weighed in on the matter with a blunt call to action, as Breitbart reported:

Social media reports indicated the man was Algerian, but that has not been confirmed by the Gardai, as the Irish police are known.

McGregor took to social media outlet X – formerly known as Twitter – to voice his anger at the stabbing, telling his followers “we are not losing any more of our woman and children to sick and twisted people who should not even be in Ireland in the first place.”

His post got plenty of people talking.

The heinous attack sparked widespread protests across Dublin, some of which reportedly involved violence and property damage.

According to the Daily Mail:

Police are mounting a significant security operation in the area and a number of people were taken away in police vans following sporadic altercations.

In a post on X, the Garda said: ‘Dublin City Centre is open for normal business. We have an enhanced policing plan in place this evening and look forward to seeing shoppers, match goers and all those that will be socialising in the city over the weekend ahead.’

Signs on nearby shops and restaurants declared they would remain shut due to concerns for staff’s safety.

Ministers met on Friday evening to discuss the response to violence which flared in Dublin city centre on Thursday evening.

Justice Minister Helen McEntee told the meeting that Garda are trawling 6,000 hours of CCTV footage and further arrests are certain.

She also briefed that the Recordings Devices Bill will be fast-tracked and enacted in the near future, allowing body-worn cameras to come into use for gardai.

Taoiseach Leo Varadkar told ministers he had spoken with the principal of the Gaelscoil Cholaiste Mhuire school, outside which three children and a woman were stabbed on Thursday, as well the manager of the Children’s Place Nursery and Montessori and representatives of the Dublin business community.

Here’s a clip of Ireland’s prime minister denouncing the knife attack as well as those who subsequently came out to protest.
