  1. Hello

    Is it possible to suscribe to a blog where it’s possible to read your articles?

    Cheers

    ps I don’t expect you to be “flattered” if I connect you with Melanie Phillips but both of you denounce the alliance of a certain left with Islamism.

  2. Has Nick C followed Mel P into the conservative right? Mel P’s anti-Islamism / anti-Leftism is driven by a egregious right-wing agenda whereas I had hoped that Nick C represented the voice of an authentic democratic left. My mistake?

  3. @John Germain; What is Leftist about defending fascism, cheering on imperialism, excusing sexism, sugar coating totalitarianism, and tolerating monoculturalism? Yet we find many Leftists do just that when it comes to Islamists.

    If they even admit Islamists are real at all, and not just a CIA conspiracy, they’ll find excuses, rationalise the Islamists’ irrational acts, ignore the religious drive, change the subject back to Western crimes to make it seem these Islamists are actually anti-imperialists when in fact they’re fighting to reinstate the Caliphate.

    People like George Galloway who seem to think Capitalism/America is The Enemy, therefore the West can only ever be hypocrites when they charge others with acts against humanity. People who would never hold non-Western people or societies to the same standards they demand from the West, because demanding others to respect human rights would be “cultural imperialism” to this particular kind of Leftist. Yet they don’t see this double standard as condescending and racist.

    Leftists for whom “the enemy of my enemy is my friend” is the true extent of their principles. This is not the Left I grew up with, whose principles of solidarity and equality in the fight against exploitation and repression were meant to be universal, not restricted according to culture and tradition. It’s a glaring contradiction which has led many people from the Left and Right to denounce the obvious.

    Yes, you’re mistaken. This is utter nonsense. So are you saying that because he has deviated slightly from liberal orthodoxy on one issue, you can say he’s now a conservative and has therefore also changed his views on gay marraige, sufferage, social welfare, immigration, taxing the super-wealthy, etc.? Why are disgruntled liberals always so trigger-happy with the word conservative, or neo-con, and so eager to throw a critic from within their own ranks under the bus?

  5. Miserabilist! Misanthrope! You’re not on the side of Freedom, Reason and Humanity AT ALL. Down with Cohen! Three cheers for Life, Liberty and Robotic Obedience!
