The Irish left - GowlBlocker


GowlBlocker was a fascinating insight into Irish far left mentality.

In 2019, some Irish leftists started using a Block Together block list on Twitter called "GowlBlocker" to block non-left thought.

By 2021, Block Together itself was closed. But for a while, we could see who was on the "GowlBlocker" list and it was fascinating.


The GowlBlocker list blocked me.

List of some of the people blocked by GowlBlocker.
See above as an image.


Aidan O'Brien

GowlBlocker appears to be linked to a guy called Aidan O'Brien ("artimusfoul").
And yes, he is just what you expect.

O'Brien calls me a "festering bin bag of racism & bigotry."

O'Brien tries to link me to all sorts of random Nazis I have never heard of.
He used to be faceless, by the way. Now he has a face.

O'Brien calls me a racist for criticising a racist organisation, the Muslim Brotherhood.
This was the last straw for me and I blocked him.
I was willing to debate him, but all he wanted to do was abuse me.


The Rubber Bandits

Tedious musicians/pundits The Rubber Bandits promote GowlBlocker. Because they do not like debate.

July 2017: Rubber Bandits have terrible politics.
I still wouldn't block them though.

Mar 2019: Annoying musicians have annoying politics.
Here they support a boycott of the 0.6 million Jews who live in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.
I still wouldn't block them though.

Mar 2019: My reply references the Limerick boycott of 1904.

Nov 2019: Rubber Bandits promote GowlBlocker.


I think the GowlBlocker people appear in this video.

Banned in Iran: This site is banned in Iran.

Blocked on Twitter by the regressive left and Islamists: I love debate. I love ideas. But the Western left and their friends the Islamic right do not return the favour. Their response to opposing ideas, whether expressed politely or robustly, is often to block. See Who blocks me on Twitter.

I like debate. But I do have rules. See Who I block on Twitter.

Twitter is broken, 2016 to 2022: I am on Twitter at markhumphrys. Twitter was a great place for debate before 2016. You could meet everyone in the world, and argue about ideas. Starting in 2016, Twitter became increasingly broken. It became full of reporting and bans and censorship. In 2019, Twitter even started shadowbanning me for no reason that was ever explained, or could be appealed. By 2022, everyone was looking for a better place to debate.

Twitter is saved, 2022: In 2022 Elon Musk bought Twitter and started to end the censorship. It looks great so far. Twitter seems to be saved.
