The world’s highest paid MMA-fighter, Conor McGregor, has put out a strong statement criticizing the Irish government’s tyrannical response to Covid-19.
In particular, McGregor condemned Ireland’s Deputy Prime Minister, Leo Varadkar, for using the divisive language of blaming the un-vaccinated in a nation that is highly vaccinated.
This is an important moment that will hopefully lead to other athletes and public figures bravely taking a stand against the authoritarian rise of global governments.
For Leo to come out today on foreign soil, and directly blame the non vaccinated, is the most divisive comment I’ve seen yet.
It is neither the vaccinated, nor non vaccinated, nor any Irish citizen for that matter, that is responsible for this unpreparedness. It is government!
