“There is grave danger among us in Ireland that should never be here in the first place, and there has been zero action done to support the public in any way, shape or form with this frightening fact”
Former Ultimate Fighting Championship fighter Conor McGregor was born and raised in the Dublin area. When the Dublin riots broke out last week, he made numerous comments on social media criticizing the leadership of Ireland and the city of Dublin over their response to the violent crime that caused the riots.

Conor McGregor criticizes Irish leaders’ response to stabbing: ‘Not good enough’
Former UFC fighter Conor McGregor criticized the Irish police and other leaders for their response to a stabbing this week in Dublin, arguing Ireland is facing danger from crime and authorities have failed to combat it.
McGregor, who is Irish, weighed in on social media as Irish authorities condemned rioters for taking to the streets after rumors spread that a foreign national was responsible for the stabbing outside a school in Dublin…
“There is grave danger among us in Ireland that should never be here in the first place, and there has been zero action done to support the public in any way, shape or form with this frightening fact. NOT GOOD ENOUGH,” McGregor posted on X, formerly Twitter.
“Announce our plan of action!! What are we waiting for? Your statements of nothing are absolutely worthless to the solving of this issue,” he wrote in another post while dismissing statements from Ireland’s president, prime minister and other officials.
Now Conor McGregor is being investigated by the Irish police for supposed hate speech.
FOX News reports:
Irish police investigating former UFC fighter Conor McGregor’s tweets about Dublin riots: report
Former UFC fighter Conor McGregor is reportedly under investigation for a series of tweets addressing last week’s riots in Dublin, sparked by the stabbing of five people, including three children.
The riots exploded after rumors circulated online that the man responsible for the attack outside a Dublin school, was a foreign national. Authorities have not disclosed the suspect’s nationality.
McGregor did not condone the rioters, but took aim at Ireland’s leadership and its immigration policies, saying a “change” was necessary.
“Innocent children ruthlessly stabbed by a mentally deranged non-national in Dublin, Ireland today,” McGregor tweeted in response to a video of Irish Garda commissioner Drew Harris condemning the violence as “disgraceful” and pushed by a “hooligan faction driven by far right ideology.”
“Drew, not good enough. There is grave danger among us in Ireland that should never be here in the first place, and there has been zero action done to support the public in any way, shape or form with this frightening fact,” McGregor tweeted. “NOT GOOD ENOUGH. Make change or make way. Ireland for the victory. God bless those attacked today, we pray.”
Here are some of the offending tweets:

He clearly did not condone the riots.
I do not condone last nights riots. I do not condone any attacks on our first responders in their line of duty. I do not condone looting and the damaging of shops. Last nights scenes achieved nothing toward fixing the issues we face. I do understand frustrations however, and I do… https://t.co/FFx7d0ZROb

Prime Minister Conor McGregor would fight for the Irish people and against the corrupt Irish Government that is now investigating him for speaking out against the stabbing of 5 people including 3 children.

McGregor should consider it, because the current leadership in Ireland is beyond parody.
"We are restricting freedom…for the common good" – Irish Senator Pauline O'Reilly on Ireland’s “hate speech bill.”

I’m so glad I visited Ireland before they joined the European Union.
