I have recently had an altercation on my blog between two contributors. It was lengthy and at times venomous. Hell, the only other time that I have had 20 comments was when I upset the gay community so I was quite pleased to attract the attention.
This blog normally attracts only friends and family and a few people who have found it independently but 'Captain Ranty' has also given me a platform which I have always appreciated.
I do however express opinions which are controversial. I read, I research and I know when something is wrong with our society. I have consistently claimed that there is a malign influence in British society which is being created without public approval. Our politicians have a disconnect with the British public which is unhealthy. Our police now have a disconnect with the British public which is unhealthy.
Our army is engaged is an inexplicable war in Afghanistan which has never been explained. Our soldiers have been constantly repatriated in hearses and we don't know why? So I question? I cry when I see the families mourn their dead because I share their grief. Who has deployed our forces into a war that cannot be won?
How can our presence in Afghanistan be justified? So why are we there? We are there because people who control and order our politicians require our troops to fight on their behalf. The British are brave and the British are malleable so let them be the bankers' mercenaries.
The power of the blogosphere allows me to express my honestly held beliefs. So back to the point of the post...I attracted a guy who holds highly controversial opinions. He calls himself 'Harbinger' and comments on many blogs. He has a lot to say for himself but then he has also done a lot of research.
I have another contributor 'Newsboycap' who I believe knows 'Harbinger' (I don't know either of them) but they have regularly encouraged this blog. I know that our society is under threat. We really have to fend off the threat of being a second East Germany.
We have accommodated mass immigration, We have accommodated a European judicial system (Human Rights) and we have lost our fishing industry, our manufacturing industry and our British humour. We can no longer mock each other in jest.
Someone or something has attacked our society which at one time attracted anyone who valued fair play and democracy. We now have to watch what we say, our children cannot play outside unmolested and we whisper in corners if we want to be honest. Tell me honestly that the views of 'Harbinger' are not well placed.
He is actually voicing an alternative voice. Something entirely different from the mainstream media and he can be challenged. I believe that he should have a voice because some of what he has to say has a resonance. We have major problems of perception in our society and we need people to project an alternative opinion.
So I can understand people being upset by what Harbinger has to say but let him have his platform because somewhere in the ranting is an enlightenment. He really is trying to tell us something... just read between the lines. (Neutrino please don't regard this as a criticism...I so agreed with so much that you challenged but some things have to be aired).
