Do your job Beasley, you fuckin muppet

Propaganda Alert: Irish Times say, don’t watch the news because we get too worked up. And they are tired of listening to us whine about austerity, so save it for when we don’t have ambulances anymore.

Jay-sus Arthur Beesley the economics editor at the Irish Times says:

“Paul Murphy TD invoked the language of fear. ‘People are no longer afraid of the Government. They’re increasingly aware that the Government is afraid of them.’ Now is not the time for us to feel fear…Fear was appropriate too when the State could not fund itself, which could have led to the closure of hospitals, schools and the like. Not now. ”

I’m sorry Arthur but are you in government? coz Paul wasn’t talking about the citizens there but you seem to think he meant you should be afraid.

This muppet goes on: Talking about the eurozone crisis “Lamentably, hardly anyone has been held to account for all that. ” – Eh can somebody explain journalism to this gobshite coz that’s your fuckin job you muppet. You are supposed to hold power to account Arthu Beesley do your job. If people can’t do their jobs they get fired. But Arthur seems to think he’s part of the government so I suppose that’s why his job is safe even though he can’t seem to be able to do it.

He also uses words like febrile which I had to look up, he could have said excited or feverish. I think he does this to make certain people read it and feel clever and part of the group. An to make “ordinary people” feel as though this is how their ‘betters’ feel and maybe this is too complicated for them. Sorry Arthur all you did was look up the word feverish on google and then click on thesarus you can’t fool us anymore.

Then and I’m not making this up, he tells us not to watch TV or follow the news because seeing as we’re all worked up now the news might get us overly excited, oh sorry Arthur febrile, we might get febrile.

he goes on to basically say: The crash happened there’s nothing we can do about it we just have to keep paying this money back so we might aswell put our heads down and stop complaining about austerity.
He’s tired of listening to us complain about austerity, did anybody see Vincent Browne last night? That horrible woman said the same thing.
I don’t know about you but I’m not ready to shut up yet.

Lets take this into our own hands, we can play ‘whats not being said’ with the papers. i think what’s not being said here is ‘The author is having trouble reconciling the poverty him and the rest of the Irish media have been ignoring since 2008 with his wealthy lifestyle. With the extra coverage of the water protests and the reasons for them they are faced with cold hard facts. facts about children in food poverty, homelessness and a million differnet acts of violence hidden behind economic policy. rather than face up to the reality of deeply cruel and unfair society he resorts to stereotypes and putting people back in their place sorry’ for ya love but it doesn’t work anymore. If an article sounds like it was written by a middle class liberal afraid to lose their job then that’s probably the motivation behind it.

Lets get educated.
Water charge hysteria a pseudo-crisis
Opinion: State has faced three crises since crash but this is not one of them
