The Total Politics Top 50 Right-Wing Blogs


This just goes to prove that the people cannot be trusted: decisions of such magnitude and importance must be left to a committee of experts. Or, to quote the wise counsel of Pope Benedict XVI, you can't determine truth by democracy.

The complete list of the Top 50 Right-Wing Blogs may be found HERE.

His Grace is profoundly humbled and deeply appreciative of all who voted for him.

Extremely well deserved Cranmer.

All the more remarkable given the fact that yours is a solitary affair and follows your retreat into silent orders last year. [And not to mention your lack of corporeal presence of course]

I hope that gives you more faith in ePetitions ... the people are not always fools you know.

James Delingpole isn't right-wing.
He's (just) a complete loony!

G.Tingey @ 14:44 : it increasing appears that you enjoy the company of ''loonies'' - ''complete'' or otherwise, eh?

Your Grace: well done.

Superlative news, Your Grace

The Inspector maintains yours is not just a blog site, but a place of education too.

And your communicants are par excellence.

Indeed, as well as the erudite, we have the roguish, a sprinkling of odd-ball characters and at least one lunatic…

Top spot beckons soon, my lord archbishop.

The previous 2 were me, deleted for stupid typos.

Congrats, Your Grace, and a question.

In what way could you possibly be described as 'right wing', apart from the fact that you are not gay, nor a rabid Commie?

Beloved Cranny should be No 1, in my humble opinion, but why does he not appear on the Religion blogs, also as No 1? Being guided, as he is, by the Heilege Guist rather than the Zeitgeist?

Make that 'Heilege Geist'

Oops typo

Kol HaKavod, Your Grace! (All honour!) Well-deserved.

Your Grace,

If Ariadne is permitted to congratulate in a foreign language, then have some of this:

Seig Heil!

How apposite for a right wing blog, eh?

PS Do you ignore me out of mere habit, or because I offend you? Perhaps you disagree with me? Maybe you hope I'll go away?

I doubt you are simply ignorant?

Is it because I am uncouth?

"Seig Heil"

Dear me, you're in for good a kicking if you utter that in Norway - You've been at the floor polish...

" ... to quote the wise counsel of Pope Benedict XVI, you can't determine truth by democracy."

Very true. Is the wisdom of Benedict XVI consistent with Anglicanism?

Well done!

I endorse the Inspector's comment about the educational nature of this blog and while my IQ may still give cause for concern my knowledge has been improved by the experience.

Blogger Atlas shrugged said...

Well done and richly deserved, although I strongly object to the terms right-wing, left-wing, and all various positions in between as being almost completely meaningless, and helplessly divisive.

What we desperately need is to far better define what is RIGHT, and WRONG, GOOD and EVIL, MORAL and IMMORAL, CORRECT and INCORRECT, TRUTH and UNTRUTH.

For without correct information, and a yard stick to measure our moral standing by, opinion is all but worthless at best, and damned right dangerous at worse.

It is clear to me that the vast majority are good, and desperately want to do the right thing for themselves and their wider community, yet do not as a general rule simply because their heads are full of lies, or not much else worth having.

IMO, and in that of an ever increasing amount of others, one of the biggest, and most dangerously murderous lies of all time is Darwins theory of Evolution. Never has such a worthlessly outdated piece of utter fiction had such a profoundly damaging affect on the world as a whole. Worse then even socialism itsle, as without Darwinian evolution, socialism, and even more so Communism and National socialism, would never had seen the light of day, never mind become the most murderously insane doctrines ever to haunt humanity.

How are our children expected to concentrate their minds on the higher levels of conscious thought, when they have been taught that they are simply the ultimate product of infinitely lucky pieces of inorganic rock?

I would very much appreciate your grace spending a little time investigating this subject, given the findings of more enlightened modern day science over especially the last 10-15 years.

Having done so myself it would appear that Darwinian Evolution has all but been abandoned by the majority of scientific disciplines with the only possible exceptions of biology and Zoology.

It would appear that modern science has managed to accumulate all but no evidence whatsoever to support Darwins theory. This in spite of spending much cash and human resources ever more desperately trying to fine any at all, for now 150 odd years.

Even Dawkins himself has now resorted to claiming that life may have originated from an extraterrestrial higher intelligence, which IS Theism in all but name.

As a fellow Theist, I hope you can also see that Darwinian Evolution goes right to the very heart of the matter. For if there exists no evidentially based natural explanation for the origins of life itself, then quite suddenly we would seem to be playing a whole new ball game. Or more accurately, back to playing at least a 6 thousand year old one.

I do not pretend to know the whole truth concerning this matter, and have never taken The Bible at all literally on this as well as many other matters. However even the methods used to scientifically determine the approximate age of this planet are highly debatable to say the least. The Earth being estimated to be around 4.5 billion years old, is most clearly based on very many highly dodgy assumptions, backed up by remarkably little hard evidence of any kind.

Atlas is right and we have had discussions on this blog about evolution and in particular I have focussed on the idea of evolution by chance. Lot’s of Christians believe in evolution directed by the hand of Almighty God. Genesis itself suggests that the universe and all it contains came into being over a period of time and although it mentions 6 days this is clearly not intended literally because the sun by which we measure days does not appear until the third or fourth day. We also know that evolution within a species can occur - the black and white gypsy moths being one of the examples we were given in school. However if we only use the term ‘evolution’ instead of ‘evolution by chance’ i.e. naturalistic undirected evolution, people assume we reject any idea of changes occurring over time. I have tried to specify that in this blog.
The other things is that we are talking about things that happened before any human existed so both sides in the debate are speculating and cannot ever provide 100% PROOF. There is evidence and I have included some of it on this blog. There are lot’s of books on the subject including my own published by However, I have asked on this blog not so much for proof from our opponents on this issue but evidence which is more than just the fact that tulips are similar to trees or that humans look like chimp which I do not consider to be adequate on its own. As it stands, we are asked to provide categorical proof whereas they cannot even supply evidence beyond the similar appearance of different life forms.

"Sieg Heil" is hardly a grace note.

This blog is a great achievement and work-in-progress.

Atlas says “The main reason that they ALL believed they were ultimately fighting for PEACE, was that they had ALL been lied too, and so were most cruelly deceived.” I have just finished reading John Pilger’s book “The New Rulers of the World” which makes the same point and argues that we are continually being lied to today. For example we are told that we are in Afghanistan to defeat terrorism but Pilger suggests that the reason is that America wants a pipeline from central Asia through Afghanistan because otherwise the only other routes are Russia, China or Iran. That sounds to me like a more logical reason than what our politicians of different parties tell us.

However, I don’t understand Atlas’s reference to a lie detector test. The Pope’s quote did not appear to me to argue for undirected evolution or even for any form of evolution. I think Atlas, you need to answer a couple of questions i.e. Do you believe God Created everything instantaneously? If not, do you believe he created everything over 6 days? If so how were the days before the creation of the sun and the moon measured.? You also say the “RCC are falling short of a belief in Darwinian Evolution, however not by much, and not enough for my liking.” I’d be grateful Atlas if you could give a bit more detail on that so that I can understand your position. Our universities may have been founded by the Catholic Church but in the modern day they are very much controlled by Pilger’s “New Rulers of the World” such as organization like Monsanto which promotes the use of GM crops and bribes scientists to lie about their efficacy and deny critical research about them.

It simply means 'hail victory'.

When we start proscribing words on the basis that someone we don't like once used them, there won't be any left.

They came for the German speakers, but I didn't say anything, because I am not German.

Cranmer über alles!

16 September 2011 at 19:30  
Blogger Ariadne said...

I know what it means, of course. English Viking. My view is that Nazism tainted certain words forever and that's a matter of taste rather than proscription.

16 September 2011 at 20:44  
Blogger English Viking said...


So I should order my speech according to your taste?

Think again.

Why are the Nazis the 'go to guys' when it comes to righteous hate?

If we are going to go down that road, Stalin slaughtered far more; Pol Pot was an equivalent; Mao, well, Mao was Mao.

How many are Blair, Bush, Brown and Cameron responsible for?

OOOOH! That's different, eh?

Bit sad really, that you cannot think any further than what you've been indoctrinated with.

We did not receive Germany as a gift, but our own fathers built it by their own work, their own perseverance, their own dedication, their own strength.

Have you ever received a medal (a high one, too) for bravery? Ever been gassed? Shot at? Bombed?

In the face of extreme odds?

No wonder he thought like he did, and I speak as one that has served on the other side, but still has respect for another soldier, no matter the flag.

You really have NO idea what you are talking about.

None whatsoever.

I thought IDF service was compulsory?

Please tell me you are not a draft dodger.

I suppose it is better that you dodged, than that you have served, and your 'service' was the norm.
