The modern right - The Irish right





Pro-Israel activism in Ireland

"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.




It is sad to see people who see left-wing nonsense on economics and crime for what it is, and then sign up to left-wing nonsense on foreign policy.

I prefer Ian O'Doherty when he is being serious, rather than when he is trying to be funny.



Pro-west organisations



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:

Blocked on Twitter: I am blocked on Twitter by Sarah Abdallah and Ali Abunimah and Nadeem Ahmed and Lexi Alexander and Umar Al-Qadri and Mo Ansar and Frankie Boyle and Brendan Ciaran Browne and CAGE and Allan Cavanagh and Tom Clonan and the Clonskeagh mosque and Stanley Cohen and Juan Cole and Ruth Coppinger TD and John Cusack and Clare Daly MEP and Stephen Donnan-Dalzell and Cllr. Paul Donnelly and Alaa Abd El-Fattah and Joyce Fegan and Mary Fitzgerald and Tara Flynn and Clementine Ford and George Galloway MP and Roxane Gay and John Gibbons and Sofie Hagen and Harry's Last Stand and Cllr. Sarah Holland and the IPSC and Charles Johnson and Owen Jones and Joanna Kiernan and Andy Kindler and Carlos Latuff and Joe Loughnane and Frank McDonald and Rob McDowall and Ruairí McKiernan and Philip Nolan and Colm O'Gorman and Donal O'Keeffe and Aziz Poonawalla and Angela Rayner MP and the Rubber Bandits and Mubin Shaikh and David Sheen and Richard Silverstein and Mark Sleboda and Jonathan Sugarman and Vian Tahir and Ronan Tynan and Cllr. Matt Waine and Mick Wallace TD and Ben White and Sarah Wilkinson and Asa Winstanley. What a shower. The reactionary part of the Islamic world, and their western allies, the regressive left.

Who I block on Twitter: 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. Also, since 2016, abusive reporting has become a thing. I was targeted with abusive reporting by an Israel-hater pretending to be "Jewish". So I now also block: (d) any account that even hints that it reports its enemies, and: (e) any Israel-hater that claims to be Jewish. It is just self-defence.
