Can we please stop pretending that Liberals Progressives are decent people?

The good folks over at have compiled a list of responses from the nutroots on three different Progressive sites. As they say, it ain’t pretty (Warning: Language).

You have to wonder how some of these people can justify their ideology, when what they propose is nothing short of German Fascism, e.g. propagandizing. Case in point:

MHB: What we’re witnessing is the product of a corrupt media and a dumb, distractable electorate. I’m not sure that anything can be done at this point, but one thing I am sure of is that continuing to operate on the premise that the majority of Americans are reasonable, intelligent people who will do the right thing if the facts are presented to them objectively is not going to work. I know that it’s not what most people who come to this site want to hear, but most Americans need to be manipulated into doing the right thing. Reasoning with them might be the morally correct thing to do, but is simply not going to get the job done.

And let’s not forget the tolerance and “bi-partisanship:”

Joe the Liberal: It absolutely sickens me… to see this solid blue state have some sleazeball, degenerate, scumbag filth republican as their “representative”. I’m even more sickened and disgusted to see Ted’s seat, that he held for decades on end go to this piece of garbage, cookie cutter, bottom feeding, dirtbag republican.

Someone’s off their meds:

TwixVoy: They are chanting like Nazis at his victory rally. Chilling. A glimpse of things to come.

I guess for TwixVoy, the chanting of “Yes, We Can!” signifies Nazism…but wait, didn’t we hear that same chant at all the Obama rallies and victory parties? Oh yeah, we did.


I pulled a couple of great quotes from Scott Brown’s victory speech. He’s saying the right kind of things:

“In health care, we need to start fresh, work together to do the job right…we can do better!”

I will work in the Senate to put government back on the side of people who create jobs, and the millions of people who need jobs. And remember, as Pres. John F. Kennedy stated, that starts with across-the-board tax cuts for businesses and families to create jobs, put more money in people’s pockets, and stimulate the economy. It’s that simple.”

“Our Constitution and laws exist to protect this nation. Let me make it very, very, very clear: they do not grant rights and privileges to enemies in wartime.”

“Our tax dollars should pay for weapons to stop [terrorists], and not lawyers to defend them.”

Some Conservative commentators and pundits have expressed caution in regards to Scott Brown because he is so new to the political arena–we just don’t know that much about him. But if he continues with rhetoric like this, and if he can follow it up with the walk to match the talk, then I think we have a new hero in the GOP.
