About Fahrenheit 211
Welcome to fahrenheit 211 – the temperature at which I believe piss boils
(although I’m willing to be corrected about that)
I’m a centre right, reasonably free thinking person with interests in theology and politics expressed in an eclectic and often poorly spelt manner. I won’t always be right (who is?) but I’ll try to bring here both my wibblings and the considerably better contributions of other bloggers.
To get the profile stuff out in the open this blog is:
Not racist but has a profound distrust and dislike of political correctness and the use of speech codes in order shut down debates (for examples visit any Left wing blog). If you want racist political and religious extremism then Stormfront and Islamic Awakening await you.
Concerned with the growth of Radical Islam.
Concerned about the infiltration of institutions by the leftists and their fellow travellers (who are making the radical Islam problem worse IMO). Sadly the Left has behaved almost treasonable with regards to how it constantly bigs-up Islam.
Definitely anti Labour, sometimes anti Tory and often anti Lib Dem. If someone was to ask me who to vote for I would urge them ‘Don’t Vote Mainstream’ – vote for the Monster Raving Loony Party if you so wish but try not to vote for a fascist, those of us who’ve had the misfortune to see the BNP in local government wouldn’t trust the BNP to run a whelk stall. If enough people give their votes to the smaller parties although it may not unseat the Establishment LibLabCon MP it will give the political class something to worry about.
Reluctant Monarchist (it’s better than the alternatives -President Clegg anyone?)
I’m a supporter of British Troops and believe that they are treated scandalously by all governments. I wouldn’t want the military to run the country though. Democracy although imperfect is better than that. To paraphrase Churchill it’s the least worst option.
I’m a supporter of liberal (in the classic sense of the word not the left-wing appropriation of the word) religious causes and although I admire those who have the personal strength to follow strict personal religious rules I know that it’s not for everyone and these extra rules shouldn’t be applied to everyone. I happen to think that having a good old row about politics is a suitably intellectual exercise even if it is done on your particular Sabbath when others think it shouldn’t be done (yes you over there in the black hat and sideburns I mean you and you up there in the Western Isles tying up the children’s swings on a Sunday I mean you as well. )
I’m a great supporter of the State of Israel and I admire it’s people and the way it manages itself. It is not perfect (what nation is). It is however the only working functional democracy in the Middle East and therefore needs to be supported. I do wish that one day however the Children of Israel and those who call themselves the Children of Ishmael may one day live in friendship, but the ball is in the court of the Children of Ishmael on that one. Israel needs a partner for peace, at the moment there appears to be no peace partner either in Gaza or in the West Bank.
Although I have spiritual beliefs of my own I am an equal opportunities attacker of all religions including my own. No one should be killed because of their beliefs but openness and honesty even if it offends, is vital in gaining understanding and eventually building trust between different faiths. If a faith acts in bad faith then it can expect NOT to be trusted. Sadly all too often it is Islam and most specifically Islamic groups that have acted in bad faith, sometimes saying one thing to one audience and something totally different to another. I don’t gratuitously take the piss out of people’s faith but on the other hand I don’t really care if your offended at reasonable criticism of the way that you follow your particular sky pixie, as far as I’m concerned taking the piss out of Islam is justified.
I ALWAYS however take the piss out of Lefties.
I don’t trust local govt and believe it needs radical reform including making it do LESS.
I don’t trust those who mindlessly promote expansionist religious ideas (Mostly this concerns Islam but Christians do it too but in different ways however a Christian is less likely these days (unlike in the past) to kill someone because of their beliefs. The Reformation, better bible scholarship and much else helped Christianity grow up in that respect.
I believe in low taxation and personal freedom and responsibility.
Oh and the inclusion of a link from this site doesn’t mean that I agree with all or any of what the link is going to. I have no time for our glorious Failed Führer Griffin but a link for information purposes to a site that is similar to one of his doesn’t mean I support said party. There may sometimes be a link to a Left wing site but that sure as anything doesn’t mean I’m a raving commie.
I don’t encourage violence but non violent self-defence in the first instance is to me morally acceptable. In challenging things like expansionist religions or dodgy politicos or whatever I would always advise that people take the peaceful legal road. Protest, use freedom of information requests, shout at your MP’s and Councillors and rant but don’t call for others to be killed. That way madness lies. I’ll leave the rabble rousing to others, it’s not my style. Let the other guy smack you first then hit him back but don’t throw the first punch it ruins the morality of your argument if you do.
I also look around my nation and sometimes weep in grief and desperation when I see what has been done to it, too often by socialists trying to create a utopian short cut to heaven.
There will also sometimes be the odd BFP (not British Freedom Party but ‘Beer Fuelled Post’)
Why this Blog exists
Because: ’I’m as mad as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore’.
Moderation policy basically there isn’t one but I will delete stuff that is gratuitously libellous, is porn is spam, is rabid conspiracy theorist rubbish, or which has links to the David Icke or Alex Jones sites or posts that I take a random dislike to although I will try to explain why I dislike a particular post or comment. I have a very low threshold for conspiracy theorists as I believe that quoting them kills your credibility. Also on the limited list of that I don’t want to see on this blog are those who push discredited theories of ‘racial science’, the world has moved on and I’ll leave the ‘apes and pigs’ comparisons between different Humans to the Islamists. It is not wanted here.
Islamists, Hitler worshippers (sometimes coming in the same package with certain Islamists sadly) tin foil hatters and similar loons can expect their textual frothing rubbish to be either deleted or seriously ripped to shreds. Eventually there will be a ‘tossers and sockpuppet’ gallery for these commenters
That’s my gaff and my rules any amendments to these rules I’ll try to post as and when although I hope I’ll not need too many rules.
Finally I’m not responsible for the content of comments made by visitors but I will say this if you comment then be responsible and own what you say. Also, please note, if you make a comment on here please don’t assume that I agree with your comment just because I don’t delete it.
