The Irish government has reportedly launched an "inquiry" into Irish MMA legend Conor McGregor over his posts speaking out against mass immigration and the stabbing of children outside a school in Dublin by an alleged Algerian immigrant.

"McGregor's posts are being assessed by the gardai, the Irish police, as part of an inquiry into the dissemination of online hate speech," The Sunday Times reported. "The inquiry is being led by Justin Kelly, an assistant garda commissioner."

McGregor made multiple posts on social media condemning the attack at the hands of a "deranged non-national" and demanding the government act to prevent similar attacks in the future.

"Innocent children ruthlessly stabbed by a mentally deranged non-national in Dublin, Ireland today," Irish boxing legend Conor McGregor commented on X. "Our chief of police had this to say on the riots in the aftermath."

"Drew, not good enough," McGregor continued. "There is grave danger among us in Ireland that should never be here in the first place, and there has been zero action done to support the public in any way, shape or form with this frightening fact. NOT GOOD ENOUGH. Make change or make way. Ireland for the victory. God bless those attacked today, we pray."

Irish authorities responded to the mass stabbing event by condemning the people who complained about it and protested the attack.

Breitbart reported that PM Leo Varadkar spent only "seconds" condemning the mass stabbing of children but "minutes" condemning the protests that followed.

X owner Elon Musk condemned Ireland's Prime Minister Leo Varadkar on Thursday for demanding new thought crime legislation in response to the protests.

"Ironically, the Irish PM hates the Irish people," Elon Musk responded.

Musk said Saturday that he would investigate the Irish government's censorship requests on Twitter:

Musk also spoke out against Varadkar's push for new "hate speech" legislation:

"Suppression of the Irish people is the real crime," Musk said.
