(by Rhoda Wilson | The Exposé) – The West’s Awake wrote an eye-opening article detailing the near granular online surveillance of Irish citizens who dare to challenge the official narrative. The monitoring and surveillance, including keeping a record of individual tweets and Telegram posts, is being conducted by the London-based think tank Institute for Strategic Dialogue (ISD) which targets individuals who speak against their chosen narrative.
ISD is also keeping tabs on the disagreements and feuds within the freedom movement. “You don’t need to be a rocket scientist to figure out … that globalists are probably dedicating resources to infiltrate online and offline groups with a view to destroying their credibility,” wrote The West’s Awake.
Two of the significant financial backers of ISD are The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the Soros-funded Open Society.
The following text has been extracted from a longer article titled ‘Irish anti-lockdown activists targeted by Soros and Gates-funded report’ by The West’s Awake. You can support The West’s Awake by subscribing to their Substack HERE.
The Institute for Strategic Dialogue (ISD) is a London-based think tank allegedly founded to initiate discussions to help improve police responses to extremism. It is a non-Irish entity.
Now, in more recent times this think-tank has taken on the self-appointed role of guardians against disinformation. Curiously, in 2021, the good people of ISD Global developed a sudden fascination with all things Irish and at the end of the year produced a report. It goes without saying that this is yet another, progressively left-leaning, and heftily funded non-governmental body claiming responsibility for defining the “Truth” of the world around us.
The corona age has ushered in an era of a new concept though. Single arbiters of truth. Worryingly, these single arbiters of truth and facts have a pretty terrible track record in their supposed area of expertise. For example, early in the pandemic, the Prime Minister of New Zealand revealed the following to a group of reporters. With a straight face.
“We will still continue to be your single source of Truth….unless you hear it from us it is not the truth”
Politicians all across the globe were allowed to get comfortable with this type of rhetoric unchallenged. If any western politician uttered these words, on any subject, to a group of reporters even as little as five years ago – belly laughter would’ve ensued. Instead, today, journalists are lapping it up without as much as a raised eyebrow.
Into this world step global think-tanks like ISD Global armed with research on conspiracy theories and dangerous extremists around the world. Monitoring of Anti-lockdown and anti- mandate activists. These non-governmental agencies are funded by the same people who fund the WHO, WEF and any other two and three-letter global organisations you can conjure up in your brain. Simply put – the people funding the mainstream narratives are also the people funding the research into counter-narratives. You can imagine how objective the results of any such research will be, I’m sure.
2021 ISD Report
At the end of 2021 ISD Global compiled a report on all the prominent anti-lockdown elements in Ireland. Of course, almost all are tarred with the same far-right brush. We’ll go through some of the names in this report and you can make your own judgement on the rights or wrongs of that tattooing. Suffice to say, I don’t believe any of them deserve the label.
Interestingly, one or two big hitter Irish names were omitted from this report and I find that almost as interesting as the people that were targeted for inclusion.
The overall subliminal messaging of this report is that all anti-lockdown and anti-mandate activity equates to far-right extremism. My experience of people at the grassroots level of what I prefer to call the freedom movement is that they straddle both sides of the traditional political spectrum.
The ISD global report that is the subject of this article today is entitled: Anti-Lockdown Activity: Ireland – Country Profile.
Monitoring and Targeting Counter-Narratives
This 16-page document gives a stunning insight into how meticulously and methodically this global elite think-tank is monitoring and targeting groups of counter-narrative people in Ireland especially advocates for the protection of individual freedoms and bodily integrity.
Let’s start with just listing a dozen or so names that come under scrutiny in this report or have popped up on their radar. Incidentally, many more groups, parties and individuals are mentioned by ISD Global but I’ll focus on some names that are familiar to me for the purposes of this piece.
- Ivor Cummins
- Dolores Cahill
- Gemma Doherty
- Rowan Croft AKA Gran Torino
- John Waters
- Dolores Webster “ Dee Wall”
- Lawyers for Justice
- Ben Gilroy
- Tracey O’Mahoney
- Barbara Barrett AKA ‘Shakti Ji’
- Rise up Eireann
Now, in any list of ten people, you’ll find one or two that you don’t necessarily agree with or whose content doesn’t resonate. One or two above I am not particularly fond of but to list any of them as somehow involved with dangerous extremism is plainly ludicrous. What I particularly dislike is that the authors of this document attempt to link the combined output of all these people and groups to one death.
The report maliciously and erroneously tries to associate the social media output of all the various people in the Irish lockdown movement with the death of Joe McCarron. A hideous lie and with absolutely no basis in truth. It does this subtly but the first sentence of the extract below leaves the reader in little doubt about where these arbiters of “truth” believe a good chunk of the blame lies.
“The effects that these movements have on individuals was catapulted into the public consciousness in September 2021, when a video went viral online showing a man, struggling to catch his breath, being persuaded to leave the intensive care unit of a hospital in Letterkenny, Co Donegal where he was being treated for COVID-19. In the video, an individual identified as Antonio Mureddu, a sovereign citizen extremist with links to the Italian far-right party Lega Nord, can be heard telling the ill patient, Joe McCarron, that if he stays in the hospital the doctors will “fucking kill you”. McCarron, who was unvaccinated and had bought into many of the claims made by those spreading COVID-19 misinformation, left the hospital that day but was rushed back to intensive care two days later after the disease had spread to his brain. Joe McCarron died on September 24, 2021.“

As you can see, in an attempt to cover itself the report eventually names the actual individual, Antonio Mureddu, who allegedly took the video encouraging poor Joe McCarron to leave the hospital. Yet, the introductory sentence invites the reader to blame everyone from this mythical beast that is Ireland’s “far-right”.
Extreme progressive ideology already controls the three main government parties and the institutions of our state. It’s already in our Department of Education and Department of Environment. It’s already in our third-level academic sector, multi-national sector and media. It’s pervading now through our Department of Agriculture as I write. It already is attempting to control our finances on an even more individual level. In short, the far-left has already won and taken over this country. And nobody’s even taken a blind bit of notice of it happening. I mean all the far-left needs now is to continue distracting and dividing the small minority of people alive to what is going on. And to stop new people from noticing the silent transfer of power that has already taken place right under our noses. The only outstanding issue is to monitor any potential grass-root uprisings of people that begin to question this transfer of power collectively. And that is where entities like ISD Global come into the equation as monitoring tools.
The more I think about it, the more I come to the conclusion that this is the sole reason think tanks like ISD Global are interested in applying resources to a country like Ireland. The globalist poster-child of the West.
What other grounds are there for applying the resources and effort that goes into the production of a report like this one?
The goal must be to extinguish any groups of people highlighting what is going on in Ireland and who are also producing intelligent content online or activating themselves in communities offline. George Soros and Bill Gates are not trying to infiltrate Ireland with a new ideology. They’ve already succeeded in doing that over the last ten to twenty years. The present game must then be to simply protect their winnings and ensure no one or no emerging group stands in their way.
So, at this point, it will come as no surprise when I reveal that two of the significant financial backers of ISD Global are The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the Soros-funded Open Society. See the full list of financial backers below.
