yes

Whenever I hear a progressive person bemoaning the "intolerance" of Christians / Republicans / rednecks / anyone not progressive,

then this:


Of course you are free to substitute anything for progressive:

liberal

leftist

Marxist

communist

agitator

activist

it's all pretty much the same thing.  My way or the highway. 

Me = truth
Me = the only one who understands reality
Me = righteousness
Me = enlightened

while

You = lies, all lies
You = delusional psychopath / sociopath / misanthrope
You = misogyny, bigotry, homophobia
You = so ignorant you should die right now to save us all from the effects of your ignorance

So you hate activists, agitators, liberals, leftists, Marxists, communists, progressives but you're not a reactionary and not a conservative and not a Repthuglican.

Lies, all lies.

Go die in a fire.

I love the massive blind spot, that's excellent.

Sounds a lot like the Crowbar.

Sounds a lot like Hugo Schwyzer.

Or PZ Myers.

Or any one of the many squawkers who adopt a victim stance on behalf of some allegedly oppressed category of humans, and then proceed to berate anyone imagined as the terrible oppressor.

Facts are irrelevant, and adopted victimhood is not at all bogus.

I hear ya, Hal.

Oh how terribly, horribly tiresome. I suppose you have an alternative way of handling social injustice?

Shaming people for their immoral views is the only way to progress our society.

I know a lot of progressives, and none of them is intolerant. They work tirelessly to help the less privileged.

Apparently you didn't realize that Karl Marx devoted his entire life to fixing the problems caused by reactionaries like you, and so mocking Karl Marx or Marxists simply demonstrates irrefutably that you are a reactionary thug who wants to see people die of poverty, malnutrition, and infected toenails.
