"Starving Russian mothers eating their dead children? Doesn't get more progressive than THAT!"
Once the term progressive has been dragged through the mud by right-wing pundits, a new term will again be chosen.
Wants to take away the money you worked your ass off to earn and give it to some welfare leech that doesn't even try to get a job. Because "That's fair."
Will try to restrict your right to free speech if you disagree with them. Because "That's hate speech!"
Wants to take away your right and means to defend yourself against violence and force you to be a victim. Because "That will make you safer."
Wants to eliminate your freedom of religion. Because "Churches are intolerant."
Wants to deny you the right to raise your children the way you choose, and instead forcibly indoctrinate them to their way of thinking. They call it "Education."
Often have never existed outside of a media studio or university classroom, but will quickly denounce anybody with actual real-world experience.
Go on and on about "Free/Independent Thinking" and being "Open-Minded," yet do everything they can to censor anybody who doesn't toe their party line.
Are quick to call anybody who disagrees with them a "Racist," "Homophobe," "Bible-Thumper," or "Redneck" but call this practice "Tolerance and Civility."
Rational person: "Look, I got nothing against gays. I have gay friends. But my religious belief says homosexuality is wrong. I don't hold it against my gay friends. I just don't think that a church should be compelled to do something that we believe is a sin. They can still get married at the courthouse, or city hall, or whatever. I'll attend their wedding. But it's wrong to force your belief down somebody's throat."
Progressive: "You're an ignorant racist homophobe redneck teabagging Bible-thumper! You're intolerant of anybody who disagrees with you!"
Rational person: "Really?"
1. The new Derogatory term for "Libtard" aka "Liberal" aka "Commie" or "Socialist".Because Republicans have ruined & destroyed the name "Liberal". When people think of them as "Liberals", it is the equivalent to 'Rapist' or 'Child Molester'. Hence, the name-change.
2. Someone terrified by the idea that someone, somewhere, might be earning money.
3. Someone who wants to move the country progressively closer to Socialism or Communism. See Marxist, Communist or Socialist. They call themselves "Progressives" because using "Communist" would give them a negative connotation in the public eye.
4. Liberal + Communist/Socialist beliefs = Progressive
I mean....... uh.. (think fast... they're on to me!)
I'm a progressive!
