The progressive liberal agenda isn’t about being nice. It’s about confronting evil, violence, trauma, and death. It’s about acknowledging the ways systemic power, systemic oppression, systemic evil, work in our world around us. I’m not fighting for diversity. I’m not fighting for tolerance. I’m fighting to overturn horrific systems of dehumanizing oppression.
Precisely why progressives find common cause with radical Islam. This quote could have been pulled directly from a radical recruitment brochure. All I have to do is swap out “progressive liberal” with some shibboleth about “real Muslims”.
So, from your tome…..you seem to be going down the same path as Roger Baldwin and Angela Davis, eventually (if not already) embracing totalitarianism, embracing coercion, perhaps even violence, as the only way to stamp out inequality.
Let us know when you make that leap. The sane, sensible people will prefer to be ….. elsewhere, when you do.
