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

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.

What a shower. Islamists and Islamic right-wing conservatives. And their western leftist enablers and fellow-travellers.

Who I block: I will debate almost anyone. I love ideas. I will not debate (and will block) people who do the following: (a) Make threats. (b) Accuse me of crimes. (c) Comment on my appearance. (d) Drag in stuff about me not related to the topic. (My professional career, my personal life.) (e) Complain to my employer. Yes, people do all these things.
