Gaia has drawn my attention to another magnificent comment from the British blogosphere, this one from Guido Fawkes.
A caveat: I decided to link and post this quote because I admire the writing, agree with some (not all) of the sentiments expressed, and want to help it reach a wider audience. It’s from a comment on a blog, not from a post, and I have no idea what the opinions of the blog’s regular posters are. They may be Nazis, Fascists, Troofers, Flat-Earthers, Moonies, or some combination of the above. If so, it doesn’t concern me. I don’t care.
Now enjoy this rant by “Minekiller”. It refers to a snide remark published recently in an opinion piece by David Aaronovitch in The Times, describing the dangerous “influence of potty-mouthed right-wing bloggers”:
So we are all potty mouthed bloggers? Umm. Perhaps, but I don’t claim for a second home that isn’t, fly my family around the country at taxpayer’s expense, start illegal wars, collude in torture, commit demographic terrorism against my fellow citizens by encouraging unrestricted immigration to buy votes in marginal and safe seats, betray the armed forces, announce defence cuts in the face of Russian re-armament, engage in ludicrous social engineering projects (that inevitably fail), politicise the police against the public, restrict civil liberties to the point of shredding Magna Carta and the Bill of Rights in the name of a “War on Terror” which is a false construct since they are the party that rely on the radicalised Muslim vote in key seats… etc etc.
…so “Potty mouthed maybe”… but not a thief, incompetent, mendacious, war criminal, traitorous scum… like new labour, its Cabinet members, MPs, Councillors, the party infrastructure… the rotten, corrupt edifice.

They will of course try and further restrict free speech in their totalitarian way since it is all they know, having grown up under the wings of loony Marxist professors at university — I saw these types myself and what never failed to amuse me was that the clever people spotted the subversion straight away, but I suppose most of us never expected the nutters from the Labour Students/SWP/CND to be actually ‘running’ the country. Try as they may it is too late, I am amazed at how important the blogosphere has become to politics. Thanks to this, new networks have been built, views and ideas exchanged, much of supposed objective role of the MSM (especially the BBC) in holding government to account has been exposed as a lie, since it is loaded with their cronies and acolytes.
I hadn’t realised the extent that our political ‘leaders’ (filth all), took this blog seriously and I am delighted that it strikes nerves. It should do. These lousy people have been troughing at taxpayers expense in return for nothing but failure after failure for too long, living behind the sycophancy of the Westminster village, SPADs [special advisors], MSM journos and the whole false construct of their Matrix like existence.
The game is up and they should be thankful that we are only at the blogging stage, if things get any worse in this country, these horrible, traitorous people may get something that makes them yearn for the days when being a bit pissed off at bloggers was all they had to get riled about.
