Lucyna di Lammermoor

As a service to readers, the Fundy Post really ought to have a Blogs of Interest section, where some of the more peculiar blogs can be brought to your attention. So let me introduce to you the one and only New Zealand Conservative. It is the creation of Lucyna, who used to reside in the right-but-readable Sir Humphreys.

Lucyna is not so much Conservative as Catholic, and not so much Catholic as Ultramontane. Here is an example of her thinking:
A while back, I came across a commenter on TBR who wholeheartedly believed that it was possible to be both a Christian and a socialist. If that were not bad enough, this person also believed that Jesus Christ was a socialist.
She is also a big fan of a book called the Pink Swastika, a deranged rant which alleges that the Nazis were not just followers of Adolf but friends of Dorothy (see here for the politically corrected version). For Lucyna, socialists and homosexualists are the source of all ills.

On the other hand, Lucyna is a big fan of Poland, whence her folks exited, pursued by a bear. So it is hardly surprising that she should be urging her readers to sign the petition to keep homosexual hands off Poland. As I mentioned earlier, Poland is becoming increasingly nasty under the rule of Doug and Dinsdale Kaczynski and the European Union is trying to do something about it. Persecution of homosexuals is not new to Europe, as Terry Davis, Secretary General of the Council of Europe, reminds us.

Meanwhile, the Maxim Institute is quite excited that the World Congress of Families will be held in Warsaw. The title of the congress, 'Springtime for Europe and the World' might remind you of a musical number.

I haven't read much of the NZ Conservative, but I used to lurk at Whale Oil and still regularly check in with Adolph Fiinkenstein. They're wacky! They're pompous! They're the new victims!

I'd say they're the best in pure unadulterated wingnuttery, but the US brand, as ever, has them beat hands down.

We in NZ are catching up, however. I just adore Not PC for Peter Cresswell's self-important stabs at trying to make the teachings of Ayn Rand (!) a blueprint for life. Seriously, he's the cult follower who doesn't know he's a cult follower.

...exited, pursued by a bear...

I'd never realised that scene was a political allegory before.

I think we can safely infer that Woody Guthrie thought Jesus was a socialist.

He also seems to have liked red cats a great deal...
