Ireland: did the pro-abortion side win the referendum thanks to massive fraud?

8d509f_i1It is well-known and undisputed that the shocking outcome of the referendum held in Ireland to strip unborn children of their human rights was the result of a huge imbalance between the pro-abortion and the pro-life in terms of political and financial support, with all of the four political parties currently represented in the Dail and all of the countries mass media supporting the pro-abortion campaign, which also received lavish (but illegal) funding from foreign political entrepreneurs such as George Soros. The decision of Google not to allow any campaigning on its website was also a perfectly example of indirect discrimination, because it disproportionately (and intentionally) affected the pro-life campaign. But all this does not suffice to explain the massive shift towards the repeal of the pro-life “8th Constitutional Amendment”, so keenly desired by the country’s political and media elite, within the last 24 hours of campaigning. 

As a matter of fact, opinion polls had predicted a neck-to-neck race all throughout the campaign, and nobody had expected a two-thirds majority in favour of baby slaughtering. Also, given the strong support for the abortion campaign both politicians and media, common wisdom would expect that there would be many “shy Nos”, i.e. people who would not publicly state their voting intentions in an opinion survey, but vote “No” in the secrecy of the voting cabin. As a result, an outcome that deviated from opinion surveys in favour of maintaining the abortion ban would  have seemed far more likely. Given the huge affirmation they received from mass media etc., “Yes” voters had no reason to be shy.

Clearly, there is something very fishy going on – and given that the political class is nearly unanimous in its pro-abortion stance, it may well be that they expected that even a massively biased voting process would go unchallenged and uncontrolled.

There are now increasing allegations of irregularities that have directly affected the voting process (and not “only” the campaign that preceded it), including reports that  large numbers of potential No voters have been de-registered from electoral registers, so as to prevent them from voting. These included convents of nuns and, more generally, elderly people (e.g. residents of nursing homes).

There are also allegations that thousands of students were flown in from the US and other countries to register as voters, even though they had no right to vote. There appear to have been almost no controls, which resulted in many of them casting more than one vote.

Will Ireland soon have to be investigated by the Venice Commission?
