Sorry, FFF will be late. Irish had to take his shillelagh(1) to the woodshed for a bit...

 Regarding the "Internet Friendships" meme I posted earlier. We (< see anon that is reference to community ) had anonymous leave the reply below.

 

 Anon, I'm not quite sure how to take it since you started off with "apologies".  I will though provide rebuttal to some of your statements. 



 Here is the comment:

 Apologies but this is the craziest statement that I have ever heard! And just goes to show that no matter what anyone says on here, the "deep state" and globalism have won! Anytime ANYONE makes such a statement is PROOF that they had completely LOST the understanding of what constitutes a community! People can portray themselves as anything on the internet and thus what you see on here IS NOT what people are!

If all that's left of conservatism is ridiculous statements such as this, then conservatism is well and truly dead! True Conservatism says: If you cannot see it with your own eyes, hold it with your own hands, then it is not real! The "Deep State" and Globalism would love it if the only expression of Conservatism was rantings on a blog, then The "Deep State" and Globalism can take control and own what is real!

  

and now...a reply.. *sips beer*... *logs off pornhub* (2)....

 "Apologies" ( Ok, anon, so that lead off might soften the blow of my rebuttal)

 but this is the craziest statement that I have ever heard! ( First off it's a meme, relax Francis. Secondly, Really?, that is quite sad given the fact that you obviously don't know what really goes on when many of us communicate outside of this interface. Oh, and you choose to post as anon. If blogger didn't allow you to post your name or nic. then you should have signed the comment with a screen name. Here's an example. Many moons ago my nic, Irish, was coined by Kenny over at Knuckledraggin. I've never met him. I've never heard his voice. I wouldn't recognize him in a line-up ( I think he may have been in a few) BUT, we have emailed and shared blog comments for many moons. He is the one that gave me the nic of "Irish". I choose not to use may real name #fuckerswatching and I need to be gainfully employed for a few more years. This blog has evolved for over a decade so I have a feeling that long time readers have an idea of my psyche. Probably more than the "boss" does.)

 (This is my hobby, I make no money, my time spent here is the enjoyment I get from posting the shit I post. If someone stops by and doesn't like it, fine. IF they do, they stick around. Example, I'm sitting here right now thinking and forming the words and sentences that I 'm typing without caring whether or not anyone reads them. There are many that will. Check out the side bar. 315 followers, and how many linked blogs? Have you been here before? Do you read the comments? Did you see how many people reached out to let me know their thoughts about places I might like to live later in life? You don't know how many private emails I got and phone numbers and offers for a place to hang my hat while they showed us around. THOSE, are internet friendships. Will they last? Who knows. BUT in that moment the best will be made of it. I do know, in all honesty, my "internet friends" will probably give you a time out because you are taking away my time prepping the Friday matinee..... That will now be late and some of them are older than I and will have to go to bed.)

  And just goes to show that no matter what anyone says on here, the "deep state" and globalism have won! ( Fuck that. I am a free man. They have not won. For now there are many many millions of my fellow Americans that get up everyday and have a job and family and responsibilities that we burden on a daily basis. As other's have noted, in multiple posts, below the surface there is a cold anger and we, those like minded that are readers here, are all feeling it. We go along day after day living life, incrementally being bled of our money and blood and sweat and tears just wanting to be left alone. Whatever is coming down the pike for the showdown will be epic. I will say that history has not be lost on those that come here. If / when it goes bad, which no one wants, it will be ugly.)

 Anytime ANYONE makes such a statement is PROOF that they had completely LOST the understanding of what constitutes a community! ( What is a community?  Let's see what the dictionary says... "a feeling of fellowship with others, as a result of sharing common attitudes, interests, and goals."   Fuck, if that don't define what goes on here then nothing does.   Have you spent time here? IF you did you would see the constant comments and camaraderie of all the readers that visit my sooper sekrit bunker and virtual pub. I have "internet friendships" with some great people I have met by creating this blog)

 People can portray themselves as anything on the internet and thus what you see on here IS NOT what people are!  ( Ok, sure, I can understand that comment to a point. Do I drink as much whiskey and beer as I portray? No. Do I eat only brisket, grilled cheese, pepperoni pizza and mac and cheese like the pictures I post? Well.....  No.    If I did any of those I would be 500+ lbs or dead, your pick. Do I wish I could hang out with all the fine FFF babes? Yes, but then again, at my age, they would probably drive me nuts. Is there embellishment sure. Are things adjusted or tweaked to incite emotions like laughter or sadness or shock and awe? Absolutely. Again, It's entertainment. Anon, do you watch TV or movies? How fucked up are those actors once you hear about their personal lives? I know most of my "internet friends" ain't fucked up because they ain't pretendin'.  The internet has allowed communication across the globe. I have gotten emails from international followers that say they stop by to enjoy what I post. I did a somewhat lengthy post about a "friend" in Portugal. One day, out of the blue, L. from Portugal sent me a long email about how much he enjoyed the blog and how he agreed with what I posted. Since then we email and he will send me fodder to post. Have I met him? No. Would I like to someday? Yes. I bet if he reads this he will email. I will also bet that if I told him I was going to vacation in Portugal he would tell me the places to go and meet me for a beer. Again, anyone that follows a blog, for awhile, will get a "feeling" of what the blog owner is like. Scroll my sidebar or look at the commenters. I would break bread with all of them. That's why they are there. Would it turn into a great friendship? Who knows? The whole idea is you can have your "internet friends" and enjoy them and what they bring to your life when your in the ether)

If all that's left of conservatism is ridiculous statements such as this, then conservatism is well and truly dead!  True Conservatism says: If you cannot see it with your own eyes, hold it with your own hands, then it is not real! (I found this:   The conservative as conservator guards against violations of our reverent traditions and legacy, and is, in fine, a preserver, a keeper, a custodian of sacred things and signs and texts…)( So, I would say there are a LOT of  "Conservatives" in this country by the above definition. I will also note that most readers here are conservatives, meaning "not libtards" .)

 (Let's run a test and see who want doesn't want to hold things sacred, " Raise your hand if you want some transgender dude with a dick to piss next to your daughter in the high school bathroom"  Comment if you do.)

   The "Deep State" and Globalism would love it if the only expression of Conservatism was rantings on a blog, then The "Deep State" and Globalism can take control and own what is real!   (The post about friendship isn't "ranting on a blog" IT's about like-mindedness, community, a sharing of what ever one wants to share.  Do you know what a blog is?  >" a regularly updated website or web page, typically one run by an individual or small group, that is written in an informal or conversational style." 

INFORMAL or CONVERSATIONAL STYLE... <<< read that again. That right there is all this is.

If I was sitting in a bar and someone next to me was talking about machining to the hot chick with cleavage next to him I would probably strike up a conversation with him, not her. See, now you know a little more about Irish.)

 

 (1) I used this to illicit a laugh as I don't own one, BUT, those in the know about Irish folklore will understand

 (2) embellishment. I wasn't on pornhub it was redtube.

    1. When I moderated the comment I was at work. At first I wasn't going to but I figured it needed a response.
      As edutcher noted, most likely a sock puppet and anonymous troll. No worries.

  2. ...as I've said in the past in comments and in emails, you're a good man Irish. You were a lot kinder and gentler with "anonymous" than I might have been. I also understand that this was also a teaching moment, which you made good use of. Let's hope the object of the moment takes the message to heart.

    as to "some of them are older than I and will have to go to bed", yeh THAT'S ME! I'll be embarking on my 74th trip around the sun (hope you don't mind that I stole your line) in a couple weeks and usually log on Friday night to fuel sweet dreams both literally and figuratively AND THIS GUY IS HOLDING UP THE WORKS!! ;-)) Nemo

    2. Irish, Maybe you and I and Nitzakhon could get together over a portion of Woodford, Gentleman Jack or Black Label. Perhaps a nice hoppy, foaming brew produced by Smuttynose or a local brew pub either here or up around your neck of the woods would be more to your liking. There's several good pubs in the Queen city from what I've read, although I don't know of any personally. A Queen city meet would make the drive to a meet up easier on all. There are several good ones in the Gate City, although I don't know what they're doing about inside drinking and dining at this point. But if a meet is proposed, I can find out.

  3. FWIW This is the same Anon that haunts Don Surber's blog, first calling himself Anon and then Big Jake and Susie Malon, among others. He is known on Pirate's Cove as Elwood P Dowd, among other sock puppets and cartoon characters he employs.

    He thinks he's smart.

    He isn't.

    He thinks he fools people.

    His "style" is about as sublte as a crutch.

    And, yes, you're right, he's a jerk.

    2. His style is copy and paste which means has no style.

      Now when I tell my kids "I have no style is my style and I am referred to as no style style"it is a wholly different meaning.

    2. I have a few blogs that I regularly follow. Mostly for entertainment, but also to kind of stick my wetted finger in the wind, to see how it blows for others. I learn the actual boots on the ground thoughts and feelings from those who are really living in Las Vegas, or California, New Orleans, Virginia, etc. I trust the actual people who are living there more than I ever would trust any media outlet, no matter how conservative, because most bloggers don't seem to have a political agenda.
      After awhile, you get to know those whom you can trust to give you the real truth, and those who are toeing the party line. There is one blog in particular that I used to engage in discussions with the people in the comment section, but finally I had to bid them good bye, since they were not interested in facts, but rather, in placing their head up the backside of the Democrat of the day's backside. I am always for truth, no matter if I am proven to be wrong. I have been corrected on several occasions, and have always thanked the person for pointing it out to me. But I require proof from primary sources and not just from some talking head on a news show or a politician who is being interviewed on said show.
      I used to watch Faux News sometimes, but with the change in their position from conservative to more liberal, as signaled by bringing on Donna Brazile, and firing Lou Dobbs, just in the last few days, has made me no longer watch them anymore. The only place that you can actually find truth is to seek it out for yourself, via primary sources, and only then can you know for certain the truth about climate change, or Covid19 and the mask mandate, etc. Of course if you want to have fun, look into Dr.Fauci's background sometime. It was him that gave the money to the lab in Wuhan, via the CDC to study the Sar's/Covid virus that somehow managed to escape, setting the United States back perhaps 50 years economically, when Trump had it soaring.

  6. I have had the actual pleasure of meeting our host. Hell, I have dropped into the Sooper Sekrit Bunker several times, as well. We've had breakfast a time or two, and a few kick ass lunches. He is very much, in real life, as he portrays himself here. Were it not for Theo Spark linking to TFI, I may not have ever have found this place. Though to be honest, I'm sure I would have found my way here eventually. Irish and I worked in parallel industries, which initiated the conversation. Since then, we have been each other's sounding boards, in one aspect or another. I am proud to call Irish an actual friend of mine. A person I would not have known without The Feral Irishman blog.

    Oh, and to be clear, most people pay no heed to a post that is propped up with an "anonymous" tag. If you don't have the balls to stand behind what you said, then why should we give any credence to it? I have always owned what I said, and signed off with who I really am. Others may not use their real name, and simply use a nom de plume. At least they are consistent with that identity and are accountable with it.

    The people that inhabit this Virtual Pub, are our community. We provide support and humor to each other online, but there is so much more than that. We provide strength and support to each other in the real world as well. More often, than not, no one ever gets to hear about it. Why? Because we aren't in it for the applause, or to win approval. It is who we are.

    If you don't understand that, Mr Anon, then there is no way that you ever will.

    1. Leigh, Well said. Some people can be taught or persuaded to change their mind. Maybe Anonymous will be persuaded to change his mind. Maybe he's reluctant to join a community when all one has to go on is the other person's writing style and expressed beliefs. Read enough of those things and you begin to draw a picture. Not physicality but personality and beliefs and whether the person is right or left of center. Friendships have been formed on less.

  7. Here’s something that we can do.
    Groups of 1-3 people.
    Get a printer.
    Get a sheaf of 500 pages of plain paper.
    Print out the Declaration of Independence.
    Spread it everywhere.
    Simple.
    Effective.
    Destructive.
    Do it smart and your and your buddies are anonymous.

    Call it the anonymous Declaration of Independence initiative.
    Everybody can participate.

  11. Irish: you, Leigh, Phil, etc. are Salt of the Earth. Anon(ymous) are usually Slime of the Earth. They are blown to and fro with every change of direction of Society, having no moral anchor to keep them grounded. Their feewings overwhelm their morals almost every time. When times get froggy, and they shortly will, they will wither and die because all they hold dear are ephemeral. They stand for nothing and fall for everything.

    I will kneel for the Lord and stand for the Flag. "Society" can go hang, they are on a downhill slope headed faster and faster towards Hell, and I want no part of them.

    I could say more, but I express myself poorly - I am not a wordsmith. I'm an Engineer.

  13. Winners don't live behind barb wire and armed guards in fear of someone coming to get them. Democrats and biden are demonic Anti-Christ's who will one day be revealed for what they do. I already read the book on how the story ends. I enjoy this blog and the others linked in the side bar. The stuff that is posted is sometimes funny, like the unbelievable perfect harem that Irish let's us see. The food he finds as he goes out and forages, yum. And sometimes talking about the what the leaders of this country are doing. I get a kick out of all that. That's why I read it all daily. You are what spend your time doing. I wouldn't be here if I thought this place and people were fake, who would? What will be so cool, is when I make it to the other side of eternity, heaven and meet these internet guys and gals, including the harem, in a perfect place with plenty of the best of the best. That's right, thanks Irish for letting me visit and hangout at your place.

  14. I was surprised to see that anonymous fellow's criticism, just indicating to me that there are people who really don't understand things. Your reply was right on the money, and reflects real world experience. If you ever do have a blogmeet, keep us posted. As the line in Jimmy Buffet's song goes "we got a lot to drink about"

  17. Anon, I hope you return and read these comments. Irish is 100% correct. I have never met Irish, probably never will, and that is sad but OK. It is OK because of it wasn't for the power of the internet, we never would have met at all, so I am grateful to have the connection that many of us have here at the blog. You do NOT have to touch it to have it be real. We are all real here. We love our families, our country, and our freedom. We share that one the blog. While I would love to one day tip a pint with Irish or many of the regulars, I will accept this for at least an opportunity to laugh, joke, and commiserate with like-minded people. So anon, it is sad to say that you are missing the real point of being here. Or you are just a simple libtard troll. I don't know which one, but I really don't need to know. I have move important things to do. Like FFF.

  20. Bravo Zulu (BZ = Navy speak for Well Done) Irish. First of all, I rarely comment here but I read this blog every day (sometimes twice to catch up on any late post). I have many friends on blogs and Book of Face, and I have met quiet a few in person or on the phone. ALL of the are great people who have a great since of humor and love the USA. Some are Dems and we have a few good discussion, but rarely result in bad words or feelings. They know they can't change my opinion, nor can I change theirs. But we do communicate. And, finally, anyone who signs as Anon or Anonymous, are, IMHO, cowards and/or bullies who do not have the balls to come out in the open... therefore what they say is irrelevant.

    4. What you do not see me doing is posting empty words on a blog about how I am just waiting to "give them a fair chance" And whatever I am doing it sure as heck wouldn't be published on the internet via a blog! Or do you not know the entire internet is compromised?
