Love to hate, hate to love

Just as American right-wing sorts somehow expect immigrants to become good, assimilated, conservative voters at the same time they are to be campaigned against as moles and security threats to be deported, Irish right wingers were looking to get bailed out by black immigrants and Muslims (note blogger Joe.My.God's demographic reality check at the end of the post):
"To the very end, opponents of same-sex marriage in Ireland held out hope. Yesterday they were reporting high numbers of immigrant Africans and Muslims standing in line at polling stations and hoped they would balance out the hordes of young people who were expected to make Ireland the first country in the world to vote for same-sex marriage. The campaign was marked by charges of hatred and homophobia against gays, often made by officials of the government. Those charges continued on the morning of the victory. On the Marian Finucane radio show this morning in Dublin, voting 'no' was described as a 'homophobic act.' The vote in Ireland will likely embolden similar efforts around Europe. With the addition of Ireland, same-sex marriage is now allowed in 18 countries around the world." - Hate group leader Austin Ruse, writing for Breitbart. 
NOTE: Muslims make up barely 1% of Ireland's population. Immigrants from African nations comprise 0.9%.
