Fianna Fáil TD Cathal Crowe has filed a Garda complaint after a “sinister” video of him surfaced online in recent days.
An anonymous video branded a “warning” by its author includes a clip of Clare TD speaking in the Dáil chamber and ends with the sound of a gunshot.
The video includes a clip of Mr Crowe speaking on hate crime legislation in the Dáil, in which he says the Irish Freedom Party uses “hate speech” and campaigns on issues such as gender, transgender issues and immigration, and that this not the case is an electoral mandate.
“Any form of incitement to people or incitement to hatred in this regard is also a form of illegality,” he told the Chamber.
This clip plays in the video, and the narrator then calls it a “toxic, inarticulate piece of shit.”
The Voice then goes on to say that “men cannot be a woman by a declaration”, that “Ireland should control its borders” and that, in its interpretation of Mr Crowe’s comments, anything contradicting these statements is “hate crime”. .
“Crowe also believes that the Irish government should enact legislation that would make it impossible for those inclined towards conservatism or freedom to organize and have a representative voice in politics,” says the narrator.
The video includes photos of gay pride flags and black activist and academic Dr. Ebun Joseph.
“The level of left-wing or Marxist representation in prominent and powerful positions in Irish society has reached a turning point,” adds the narrator.
The narrator ends the video by saying he will “defend the property I have accumulated through years of hard work, including by force if necessary.”
“So go ahead and make your laws, but don’t be surprised if those of us who are willing to die for freedom and individual liberty do something that might be frowned upon along the way,” adds the off -Commentary added while viewing an image of the Dáils 160 TDs are displayed on screen.
The video then ends with the sound of a gunshot.
Mr Crowe described the video as “sinister”.
“Politics is tough business, but if someone is outraged by what a politician has said, there are many legitimate ways they can express their displeasure,” he said.
“Threatening any person or persons online is absolutely reprehensible.”
Mr Crowe said the video now has thousands of views and has been made aware of it by friends and constituents.
“I especially found the shot at the end of the video to be pretty spooky,” he said.
