Fletch Ouch!


I'm not a sports fan, but I saw this image on the net which made me think of the English.

This is NZ Conservative isn't it? Why would I come here for posts on novelty graphics? No wonder you people are losing on very front. You practically lie down and beg for defeat. Pathetic.

Crusader Rabbit is run by one person and he makes you lot look like complete lamers.

When the hell are you going to to harden up and take the fight to the left? Or is victimhood your preferred status?

MrTips said...

Perhaps you'd like to get your own blog Redbaiter and take on the left all on your own?

Communism wasn't taken down by swearing a lot you know.

Redbaiter's heroic efforts at eradicating socialism by complaining about it a lot on the internet are an example to us all, Mr Tips. We should all be grateful that he spares the time from his epic task to offer helpful editorial advice for our blogs.

Redbaiter, perhaps it's just a cunning trap to lure in the progressives/leftists that then are exposed to other posts. Works every time :-)

Equally, all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. It doesn't hurt to leave a little time in one's life just living.

And with Crusader Rabbit (and don't forget MK!) we can roster in a decent break every now and then.

I didn't watch that match, i don't watch much soccer, too boring, but i saw this in the highlights.

At least now i know it's not only us who are getting shafted unfairly. Those morons at fifa really need to get with the times. Stuff like this makes the world cup a joke, you might as well just flip a coin and decide who the winner is.

Nice comments from the German goalkeeper. He doesn't mince words:

Goalkeeper Manuel Neuer admitted Frank Lampard's seemingly legitimate goal "was close", and appeared to acknowledge that Germany were fortunate to escape conceding an equaliser.

"I tried not to react to the referee and just concentrate on what was happening - it was difficult," Neuer said. "I knew it was close.

"Then I saw it on the television in the doping control office and what actually happened. I knew it was tight - probably about two metres!''

Gee, RB, I just thought it was funny :|
We may be conservatives but we don't froth at the mouth all the time with bayonets ready to attach.

We still like to have a giggle or two.

" Communism wasn't taken down by swearing a lot you know. "

So completely intimidated by the left's strategy of political correctness, their most successful evil, you scurry like spineless custard coloured little lemmings to do their work for them.

Again, utterly hopeless.

MrTips said...

I think RB that you and PM should get a room.

You are more alike than you think.

Redbaiter,

This blog's purpose is not to take down Communism. It is to introduce to New Zealand, in a gradual way, an alternative, ancient viewpoint that is best expressed using the political concept of "Conservatism". Hand in hand with that, this also a Catholic blog. Catholicism is older than Conservatism. As a religion, it has been around for nearly 2000 years. It is in direct opposition to Communism, which promises heaven on earth, while as the religion of God promises Heaven, eventually, for those who love Him.

We are not here to create a wonderful place on earth to live in - because that is impossible. It impossible because of human nature which is fatally flawed by Original Sin.

There is a prayer to St Michael on this website that articulates where the real battle lies right now. It's not a physical battle, it's a spiritual one. I explain more about why I put the prayer here in this post.

This blog has been around for a long time, and a number of us have been blogging for a lot longer. We've probably said the same things over and over again, and when it comes down to it, the time spent on our real lives tends to take precedence (hence the quiet here lately).

When it comes down to it, I far more interested in saving a person's soul than I am in saving the world. The world will eventually end, while as our souls are immortal.

Then we shall fight in the shade


Even against the greatest odds, we are entitled to keep our sense of humour.

Andrei said...

It would be kinda dull to just post rants about the left all the time - I think.

Variety is the spice of life wouldn't you say RB?

Melva said...

Redbaiter - Don't be an idiot.

A little bit of fun on the net goes a long way. There are far too many people in the blogosphere who take things way too seriously... like you. That brings the whole tone down. It doesn't take a genius to realize that no blogger on the left or right is going to bring down the other side and so there's no use getting your undies in a twist because you think a post such as this may have hurt your chances of seeing the other side suffer.

"It doesn't take a genius to realize that no blogger on the left or right is going to bring down the other side"

So wrong. Not one of course, but a combined effort.

If this site is just going to be lightweight mush, updated every three of four days, then maybe they should drop the title, (given its political inferences) and resign themselves to extinction at the hands of the Progressives.

Before they go the way of the Dodo and the Moa, they could call themselves the PCCs-

"a conservative who yearns for the goodwill of the liberal elite in the media and in the Beltway—who wishes, always, to have their ear, to be at their dinner parties, to be comforted by a sense that liberal interlocutors believe that they are not like other conservatives, with their intolerance and boorishness, their shrillness and their talk radio. The PCC, in fact, distinguishes himself from other conservatives not so much ideologically—though there is an element of that—as aesthetically."

Anyone who truly wishes to understand redbaiter should take a look at this - http://www.leftycartoons.com/the-24-types-of-libertarian/

Warning: I followed Leftrightout's link and the site messed with Firefox while trying to get me to download some kind of malware. Best avoid...

Lucia Maria said...

Since the weekend, I've been dedicating a decade of the Rosary every night for everyone that visits this blog.

I've found when I pray for some people, that they have gotten grumpier than usual. Not sure exactly what this is. Normally, if I keep at it, it resolves over time.

KG said...

Leftrightout, you'll never understand Redbaiter because he stands uncompromisingly for liberty, a concept utterly alien to collectivists such as you.

The best argument you can muster is to refer people to a cartoon...and as PM points out, on a dodgy site at that. Pathetic.

KG said...

Thank for your prayers, Lucia Maria.

Lucia Maria said...

You're welcome, KG.

I've had a rough couple of years (in real life, lots of stuff happening), so my prayer life has been very up and down lately.

But when I do pray, I find it helps me enormously as well.

I.M Fletcher said...

Awww, thanks Lucia. Very kind of you.
