dr_blasto: So, I gather from the comments here that this article might even be dumber than usual?
I_Am_Weasel: dr_blasto: So, I gather from the comments here that this article might even be dumber than usual?The basic argument is this "If they're going to call themselves Progressives, they shouldn't be allowed to bring up anything from the past".
hubiestubert: Why won't Liberals remind people of all the good things from the past? You know, like women who had dinner on the table and knew their place? When folks of various colors didn't mix with good, white women because they knew that they'd see the end of a noose? When children were given the opportunity to help their families put bread on the table by working in factories or in the fields without regard for their schooling? When a man could walk down the street without fear of being competed out of business by some immigrant taking his job? When Congresscritters were only white, and a Congressman didn't have to worry about offending someone of color, because they weren't going to be able to vote? When the Chinese were seen as a invading force, and kept to their own ghettos so that the railroads could roll? When America didn't have to apologize for Interring citizens? When there were only a few religions that had any pull in this country, and we told the ones that we didn't like to sod off and take to the hills and go where there weren't any decent people to bother? Why won't people leave these things alone? It's almost as if they're obsessed with the "rights" of all citizens, instead of the rights of the only people who truly matter...

WI241TH: The public school system has dumbed down our kids so that more who cannot read or do arithmetic are graduating form high school. How is that for progress?I would like to see the data on that, because I have my doubts.
Dr Dreidel: I wonder how he was able to type all that with Reagan's balls in his face, under his "Goldwater was right" poster, one tab over from infroming a liberal on a 9/11 memorial website that "the party of Lincoln" is not racist but "the party of Byrd" was, secure in his belief in what a horrible president Carter was.// don't conservatives love reminding progressives that super-racist Woodrow Wilson was one of the first big-name progressives?// or is it just a reminder that The PastTM is the exclusive domain of the GOPTM and its subsidiaries (all rights reserved)?
