So what exactly did I say?

I called bvllshit on ONE article shared on “In her Shoes” where the girls real time blog completely contradicted her Irish Times interview.....her blog has since been removed

I also said that some on the Yes side were attempting to stifle debate by jumping down the throat of anyone who didnt completely agree with them on EVERYTHING
And you were correctly called out for being a bullshitter.

Your claim to be a Yes supporter is about as convincing as Dougal Maguire's claim to not be an anti-semite.

LOL.....thanks for proving my point
Stop trying to shut down debate.

Haha....good one......Im not the person jumping down everyones neck and insulting them for not agreeing with them.


You're just a troll with nothing to say.

He's correct on that score.

Some people just dont like to hear opinions they disagree with

As No supporters have proved conclusively on this thread with their reactions to facts they don't like.

That actually looks like I was agreeing with Sid. I was agreeing with your point, whitey.

Thanks.....its kinda bizzare.....Im probably in agreement with him (and Syf) 90% on this subject, but because I have the audactity to have a dissenting opinion on one facet of the campaign (about the Yes side also making $hit up) and because I think that the NO side have “some” valid points hes out with a burning pitchfork

At the beginning of the campaign I argued that the sometimes hostile approach of not all, but many on the Yes side, more precisely those associated with fourth-wave feminism, will do little to convince the many undecided in the middle, that is, those which the opinion polls tell us remain undecided, of which I am one.

I suggested that science and fact, rather than rhetoric on social media, would do more to convince the middle ground than the occasionally smug approach adopted by some on the Yes side.
You know who you are.  ;D
The bigger the t**sers on the Yes side, the more likely that No will win.

The No side whooping, hollering, booing, shouting and talking over other speakers at every opportunity here on the RTE 1 debate.

That's been the modus operandi of their campaign from the start.

Maria Steen giving a masterclass in swatting away the Yes mob.
A great point from the audience too. If people actually witnessed what happened during an abortion, they wouldn't be voting for it.
Sid and Syferus will never address this. Instead they'll dress it up in cuddly language like 'compassion' and 'healthcare'.

It's surreal to think that we put Rhona Mahony and Peter Boylan in charge of the country's largest maternity hospital when they have expressed their utter contempt for the unborn child.

Way to demonise people because they don’t agree with your zealotry on abortion.

The chick in the red? She wouldn’t be out of place on Fox News, such is her level of shite and absolute balderdash. She actually needs more stricter moderation from the host.

They've demonised themselves with their anti-child opinions.

We'd the Catholic Church running the country and we know their contempt for women and children.

She wiped out Mary Lou at the very end.
Peter Boylan is probably the best recruiting sergeant for the No side. An absolute liability for the abortionist side.

You see didn’t wipe anything. She threw bluster and hyperbole and mud. She won’t have converted anyone that’s not equally as entrenched in emotive, unsubstantiated, terminology.

If you’re looking for people to swing voters, place your enjoyment and confidence in the GPs who actually asked considered questions, such as the conscientious objection question.

RedSweater chick was a dose.
