"Left" and "Right" - What am I?

Who would I vote for?

The Irish economy

The Irish left


The Irish right

The use of the term "right" here is to have a way of referring to these people, in the absence of a better term. The left uses "right-wing" as a pejorative term, but obviously I do not regard it as such. I would be happy to describe myself as somewhere on the "classic liberal" right, for example. I have elements of both left and right in my beliefs.

What this page is about is listing some of the defenders of the West in Ireland - the people who broadly support the democracies against the non-democracies. Whatever this makes them, it makes them not "left".

By "right" on this page I mean people that broadly support the democracies against the non-democracies - that broadly support the West against its enemies.

Not all the people on this page could definitely be called "right-wing". In fact, I'm not even necessarily "right-wing" myself. But we need some term for these people, and for people like me.





Politicians

  

Other politicians

I am not sure if these are really on the "right", on foreign policy at least:



Academics

Ian O'Doherty

Other

  

Pro-west organisations


USA


Israel




George Dempsey

George Dempsey, former US diplomat in Ireland, is a good critic of the Irish left.




Summary - What can you read in Ireland?

What should someone who is centre-right on foreign policy (anti-jihad, anti-sharia, pro-West, pro-Israel) read in Ireland?



Pro-West media in Ireland




The Irish media's lowest moment: The Irish presidential election, 2011.
The Irish media failed to vet the winning candidate Michael D. Higgins.




Who am I like?

If you're confused as to who am I like, I'm like these people:

Who I block: I will debate almost anyone. I love ideas. I will not debate (and will block) people who: (a) target my job, (b) target my appearance, or: (c) libel me (such as call me racist). I will not debate such people. I will block them.
