On Saturday, 24th December 2022, I published a holiday special year-in-review video on YouTube and Odysee, well sort of.
I had intended to publish it on Halloween (31st October 2022), which marks the end of the Celtic new year, but time got away from me and I didn't get it finished on time to meet that deadline.
As I explain at the start of the video, between Family, work and community commitments, I just didn't have the spare time to make videos as frequently as I used to during the lockdown.
Truth be told, the video actually begun to be made as a "March update," but as spring as summer sped on into September, I resolved to make it into a Halloween video, so I edited out some of the stuff that went on earlier in the year and focused on the spookier elements for Halloween.
Basically, the low hanging fruit of Limerick Antifa got the chop and I focused on the more politically significant and my three favourite witches-not-witches became the main stars.
I missed my own deadline and after Halloween I thought that I might be able to edit it into a Christmas special, but as you will see, the content really was more suited to Halloween. I had a few hours to spare on Christmas Eve, so I sat down at 5pm to finish the video and published it at 8pm that evening.
On Tuesday 27th December I published the video on BitChute and Rumble, where I have considerably less subscribers, but it got a few views nonetheless.
Ever since the Houses of the Oireachtas tried and failed to get my "Together for Lies" video removed from YouTube last March my videos just don't get the views that they used to and this one was no different, getting just over 200 views on YouTube in three days.
I suspect that I have been shadow banned; this means that most of my subscribers don't get notified and my videos don't show up in searches.
Then on Wednesday 28th December the video started to climb, reaching over 600 views in a few hours. What was going on?
It would seem that someone was good enough to advertise it for me on Twitter, well sort of..
As if wishing to prove the point that I made in the video about her narcissistic tendencies, the Social Democrat's Councillor. Elisa O'Donovan makes a double-barreled tweet about my video, without actually naming me or the video.
The only lines that have been crossed were the ones crossed by O'Donovan when she lied about me and others. As much as I abhor her twisted beliefs I don't want her out of politics, I just want an admission of wrongdoing and a public apology; I want her to be truthful.
It is truly is amazing to see the blind allegiance of her a sycophantic followers; here's a link to the tweet, so you can check it out for yourself:
I am beyond appalled to learn a new video was uploaded on Christmas Day about me. I am very happy to be criticised but a line is crossed when my friends and people close to me are publicly abused for “entertainment”. Nothing is worth my friends being distressed and (1/2) pic.twitter.com/CAbvl3RYCz— Cllr Elisa O'Donovan (@elisaodonovan) December 28, 2022
"No such proceedings were ever issued, I didn’t even receive a solicitors letter threatening legal action against me. Not once has O’Donovan or her solicitor ever attempted to contact me; she prefers instead to have hit pieces written about me by her newspaper pals."
O'Donovan is given free reign to say whatever she likes without question, none of her statements are challenged and she is portrayed as the helpless victim of racist, transphobic, and homophobic extremists.
This would-be White knight zombie journalist provides O'Donovan with even more narcissistic supply. O'Donovan claims that my videos are a "bingo card of misogyny" yet a no point does she say where in the videos this misogyny is located or what it even says in the boxes of her imaginary misogyny bingo card.
Tutty had told me that she didn't find my videos to be misogynistic and her article brought over 200 new subscribers to my YouTube channel. The article that was initiated by O'Donovan had backfired and she ended up shooting herself in the foot with the attempted hit piece; neither O'Donovan nor Tutty shared the article on any of their social media accounts.
"Ms O’Donovan believes that the content creator wishes to “isolate” her as they are now targeting people who are not in the public eye. These people are contacting Ms O'Donovan 'upset and distressed' about the online material, she said. 'Why on earth would anyone want to support or be involved with a politician when your public life could be up for entertainment?'Ms O’Donovan said over the last two years there have been multiple videos, which she has reported. None, however, were taken down, except for one being restricted to viewers in Ireland after she hired a solicitor. "
I'm not trying to isolate O'Donovan, I'm trying to expose her lies and that is the real reason why she wants my videos taken down.
All those people mentioned in the video are in the public eye by virtue of the very public statements they have made, which are shown in the video.
The more pertinent question is, why would anyone want to support or be involved with a politician when they are proven to be a narcissistic self-serving liar and an incompetent public representative? Even the most blind ideologue would find it difficult to continue supporting a politician that has been exposed as a liar and a fraud.
There has indeed been "multiple videos" and none of them were taken down because they haven't invaded anyone's privacy, or broken any laws with regarded to "abuse" or "harassment" as O'Donovan has falsely claimed.
O'Donovan did succeed in getting one video on YouTube blocked in Ireland (it can still be viewed if you have a VPN), and that video is called "Elisa Lies: The Hypocrisy & Mendacities of Councillor Elisa O'Donovan."
O'Donovan got a solicitor to make a false defamation claim to YouTube as they would have had to provide the social media giant with proof that they were taking me to court for defamation. They would have had to lie to YouTube because as I stated earlier, I have never had any direct contact from O'Donovan or her solicitor and I would happily defend everything I have said in a court of law.
Bizarrely, according to my YouTube Studio, there are no restrictions on the video, yet it remains blocked in Ireland:
That video was the exposé on Cllr. O'Donovan and her antics which was starting to go viral. Some say it was the best video on O'Donovan that they've ever seen (and thankfully it was not totally suppressed as it's still available to view without any restriction on Bitchute, Odysee and Rumble).
It is sad to see how low the legacy media has sunk; this zombie journalism will only serve to destroy what little credibility they have left in reporting the news. There might some political gain to be had in the short term, but in the long term the truth will out, it always does in the end.
You can read Jack White's fake news article here:
White's article doesn't mention me, but it does provide a link to another piece of zombie journalism in which I am identified through O'Donovan's tweet, which they embedded in the article, so I think I'll see if this time the Irish Examiner will give me a right to reply, but I won't be holding my breath for it.
SWEET INNOCENT ELISA
O'Donovan claims that she is a "good person" and likes to act as if she has done nothing wrong; she is upset that I am exposing her and in a tweet from last year that I referred to in my Halloween Special, O'Donovan wonders "when does it end,"
Well, it all started when she lied about me, claiming that I harassed and intimidated her, and then she got her far-left extremist pals in Limerick Antifa to start an online hate campaign against me and my children, who they claimed I was raising to be white supremacists, a hate campaign that was publicly endorsed by O’Donovan...and it'll end when she stops lying and issues a public apology to me and the other people she has lied about;
As I clearly explain in the video, Councillor O’Donovan is more than aware of this as I emailed her and the other Councillors in 2021. asking that she issue a public apology through her various social media accounts, the wording to be as follows:
"In 2021, I made several false claims on social media that I was harassed and intimidated by a cameraman and by the congregants of the Sacred Heart Church as they prayed the Rosary on Palm Sunday. I later revealed the cameraman to be a local community activist in my electoral area of Limerick City West, Cathal McCarthy. I also shamefully endorsed an online hate campaign organised by far-left extremists against Mr. McCarthy and his children; I acknowledge that this was wrong and I unreservedly apologise to Mr. McCarthy for any hurt that I have caused to him and to his family. I was not doing my job as a Councillor when I disrupted the Holy Rosary and shouted at the congregants; I did not have the authority of Limerick City & County Councils to behave in this appalling manner and I unreservedly apologise to the congregants of the Sacred Heart Church for my outrageous behaviour"
This is the unedited footage of O'Donovan's unhinged antics outside the Sacred Heart Church; afterwards she claimed that I had intimidated and harassed her, so I uploaded the footage to show that she lied.
O'Donovan tried to get that video taken down by claiming that it was an invasion of privacy, even though she was public representative in a public place making a public spectacle of herself while claiming to be doing her job as a Councillor. Needless to say the video wasn't removed because there was no validity to her complaint.
The complete set of the Elisa O'Donovan Chronicles videos,(8 videos, not 9 as O'Donovan claims) unblocked and uncensored, can be found here:
Throughout 2022 O'Donovan has doubled-down on her lies and as long as she continues to so, I will continue to respond with videos; you can expect plenty more in 2023.
2022: OVERALL I HAD A GREAT YEAR
With all the hate been sent my way in 2022, one would be forgiven for believing that i had a miserable year. The reality is quite the opposite, overall I had a great year. I started a new job, which I really enjoy. I got a lot done around the house early in the year and I had a fantastic summer with my family and did a lot of snorkeling and wild swimming around the country. This is one of my favourite and most frequented spots:
I took an extended break from social media during the summer, not that I was ever on it much to begin with, but it was good not to be even looking at the toxic bile of my detractors. In September I took a look at all the links and screenshots that were sent to me by supporters and started to compile my Halloween Special video, I was very lax when it came to working on it, hence the lateness of its release.
My priorities for 2022 were Family, Work and Community and those will continue to be my priorities for 2023. However, I may decide to become more involved in community politics through the Public Participation Network, I'll see how the mood takes me.
2023: THE CHALLENGES AHEAD
On a personal level I will continue to strive to improve the quality of life for my family and community to the best of my ability.
It's hard to know what surprises that the Irish state has in store for the Irish nation, but given the ideological state of the political establishment we can expect more of our freedoms to be eroded.
All of the mainstream political parties support the introduction of "hate speech" legislation, no doubt this is because they all want to silence all voices that are concerned with illegal immigration and question the sanity of current government policy.
The neo-liberal coalition government of Fianna Fáil, Fine Gael and the Green Party are virtually indistinguishable from the pseudo opposition parties of Sinn Féin, the Labour Party, the Social Democrats, Solidarity and People Before Profit.
They are all pro abortion, pro open borders, pro carbon taxes, pro lockdowns, anti Irish nationalism and anti free speech. They only difference between the current neo-liberal government and the far left so-called opposition is that those government-in-waiting parties think that the current shower don't go far enough.
All of them want to delimit private property and there is every possibility that we might see a referendum on "the right to housing" to trick people into voting away their property rights and giving the government the power to control all property. Some of the current neo-liberal gang have already floated the idea that older people living in big houses could hand their family homes over to the state in exchange for smaller accommodation. If a "right to housing" referendum were to pass they wouldn't be anything voluntary about it.
If such a referendum is held then hopefully enough of the electorate can be convinced to vote against it, but with the legacy media totally in thrall to the ideological aims of the establishment it will be an uphill struggle.
HAPPY NEW YEAR
I do hope that everyone had a peaceful and merry Christmas; I was fortunate enough to have spent mine surrounded by family and good friends #BestChristmasEver
I wish you all a happy new year, even my detractors; such hate-filled people need to find happiness the most.... the truth will set you free lads
Until the next time....be seeing you.
