I want to make a blogring and form an alliance...

  1. Hi. I want to form an alliance to gather those people who are against Anti-Americanism no matter what political party you belong to. I've taken advantage of the blogroll that WordPress.com provides us with to create all sorts of categories. Anyway, my question is how do I form an alliance that is similar to a blog ring? How can I provide a script for these people that join? Blogrolling.com uses javascript, so we cannot take advantage of that convenience. Does anybody have any good ideas?

  2. I'm quite sympathetic with this (I owe the very fact of my birth to Reagan's strong stand against the Reds).

    I'd suggest gathering such blogs in a del.icio.us account or another social bookmarking service and including them via an RSS widget.

  3. Thanks for your reply, delta. That's a good idea because we can ask the widget on WP to just pull up those blogs under specific tags if I'm not mistaken. Ok, and next, how and where do I begin to find people to join? Can anybody recommend a site where I can pimp this alliance? I just ran a google search and didn't get to lucky.

  4. I'm not into this topic online but try this

    http://medienkritik.typepad.com/

  5. Thanks delta, I actually had him already blogrolled. He has an awesome blog. I sent him a message about creating a group. I hope something works out. If anyone's interested, just send me a message.

    Thanks again, delta. :-)

  6. Ewwww.... David's Medienkritik? Ewwwwww!!!!!

    For just one example of how that site twists reality to suit a certain point of view, read my post from a while back:

    http://lettershometoyou.wordpress.com/2007/05/25/in-the-land-of-the-blind-the-one-eyed-man-is-king/

  7. Ok. I know that I can use del.icio.us for creating an entirely new blogroll for alliances. But what if I want to join a blogroll that already has about 300+ members? I'd hate to go to the trouble of having to add 300+ people into my links or my del.icio.us.

    Has anybody found a work-around for this? o_O

  8. Anybody?

  9. Blogrings are a little old-fashioned, so there's not going to be much advice out there about using del.icio.us or other newer things with it, at least not here. You could try their forums instead, if they have them.

  10. "people who are against Anti-Americanism"

    So that's anti-anti-americanism?
    Like being pro-usa?

  11. Hi Mark, I don't know what "Pro-USA" means.

    I have this in my glossary section, but I'll copy and paste it here:

    <i>Q: What is Anti-Americanism?

    A: Anti-Americanism is not about the disapproval of Bush and the Iraqi War; it’s not about the disapproval of past wars and whatever our government has failed to do right, and it’s not about hating the Republican Conservative individuals in America. Anti-Americanism is the indiscriminate hatred toward the American people (the white folk only) as a whole regardless of any American’s political positions and voting preferences. For more clarification, watch this video. It defines Anti-Americanism in depth.</i>

    That, for me, is Anti-Americanism.

    Anti-Anti-Americanism is the opposite. And neither do any of these terms have to do with politics.

    I have a feeling people are thinking that I'm some right-wing nut job, but I am actually quite the opposite.

  12. Let me clarify. Anti-Anti-Americanism isn't exactly the "opposite" rather, judging the individual and not the group. Being against AA (Anti-Americanism) means that you're tired of people just blindly hating 300+ million people with the assumption that they're all neo-con, bible-thumping, gun-toting, Bush clones. More information can be found on my blog's introductory pages and on the sidebar etc...

  13. Then you got me on your side. But none of my blogs ever discussed anything about anti-anti-Americanism yet. Well, maybe I will. I'm from Indonesia. Anti-Americanism is well-flourished here. And I don't really like the idea.

  14. I'm pro-anti-Americanism, given that my ancestors looted and burned the White House.

  15. RC, Aren't you more anti-American government or do you just hate all Americans? Being pro-Anti-American means you hate the American people as a whole - and yes, including liberals!

    Q: What is Anti-Americanism?

    A: Anti-Americanism is not about the disapproval of Bush and the Iraqi War; it’s not about the disapproval of past wars and whatever our government has failed to do right, and it’s not about hating the Republican Conservative individuals in America. Anti-Americanism is the indiscriminate hatred toward the American people (the white folk only) as a whole regardless of any American’s political positions and voting preferences.

  16. This sure has a lot of potential, uh, no, I mean

    LOFUUCKINGL! Damn! Oh Baby, does this thread have a lot of potential!!!

    hee hee.

  17. I think that the words "All Americans" do not actually mean what you think they mean. You can't say "indiscriminate hatred towards the American People as a whole" and then discriminate by restricting it to white people. But hey, it's your philosophical movement, and it can have any internal contradictions you want.

  18. The reference to "white people" is because when the US is bashed, it doesn't refer to anybody but the whites. When people say that they hate all Americans, they don't count minorities as they are the ones said to be oppressed by the big, fat, rich guy.

    THAT'S what I mean.

    So, there's no contradiction or racism in that. But I respect your interpretation as I have interpreted Anti-Americanism in subjective terms myself.

  19. When you define anti-Americanism as anti-WHITE Americanism, you're being racist.

    Take it from someone who has been known to bash Americans: we don't generally care what colour you are.

  20. And as exactly the person you're talking about, I object to you calling me racist. I am not racist.

  21. Anti-Americanism is the indiscriminate hatred toward the American people (the white folk only) ?

    what a load of shyte. whats your source?

  22. Not as crappy as you might think, amandzing: That's exactly the way it works in Germany e.g.

  23. Anti-WHITE Americanism is not the same as anti-Americanism. By defining anti-Americanism as only discrimination against white Americans you are yourself subscribing to racism: ie you define Americans as white.

    If you don't want crap for that, pick another term. This is something you've brought on yourself.

  24. The reference to "white people" is because when the US is bashed, it doesn't refer to anybody but the whites.

    That's depends on who's doing the bashing.

    As for Reagan's role in the fall of Communism in the east bloc, John Paul II had as much, if not more, to do with that and they worked in concert.

  25. I don't know how this makes me dislike non-whites. I am not a racist. And I don't appreciate the knee-jerk "race-card" being drawn at me - when it can't be any further from the truth.

    And RC, for someone who claims to hate Americans, you shouldn't be talking about bigotry.

    Ellaella, yes, I agree - it does depend on who's doing the bashing.

    So, carry on now - debate this topic all you guys like. Everyone's going to read into my definition of AA differently, and I refuse to make that my problem.

  26. Anti-Americanism=Anti-White-Americanism? That sounds vague don't you think?

    I'm not a racist, i appreciate all whites but americans...
    Does it mean i'm off of your list? Heeheee

  27. I think the point virgomonkey wants to make is that ordinary Ant-americans are quick to exclude minorities from their sentiment if they're challenged.

    It's a stupid ideology so we shouldn't expect it to be coherent.

  28. But what I'm saying is that I AM anti-American. Why does no-one listen to what I have to say about anti-Americanism?

    If you define anti-Americanism as only hostility towards white Americans you are very obviously equating Americanism with white Americans, and specifically excluding all other groups. That's a racist definition.

  29. I certainly never said I wasn't bigoted; I said I wasn't racist. It's perfectly possible to be a sexist, for instance, or a nationalist, without caring one whit about somebody's race.

    See, the argument here is whether anti-Americanism is racial bigotry (and my position is, of course not; whites aren't even a majority of Americans) or whether anti-Americanism is a form of chauvinism, <i>national</i> bigotry.

    If you commonly abbreviate it to AA, however, you're going to get a whole new kind of confusion happening.

  30. Isn't the U.S. big enough to take a bit of stick? doesn't it come with being leader? I love the yanks BIG time. hey you yankee doodles, you're great stop being so sensitive.
    Tell ya what I mean, I was on a forum [mostly yanks] and someone asked me "what state am I in?" I said "a terrible state" [meaning all fouled up] and it brought forth such a tirade of angry patriotism from americans who knew I wasn't a yank. "there are no terrible states! how dare you! etc." That is so sad. We Brits we take it on the chin.
