Enter Pat Condell (see video below), who offers a 6 minute description of the nauseating, sanctimonious, intellectually-lazy movement called progressivism.
Have you ever had a discussion with somebody about an issue which then turns into a debate? Throughout the exchange of dialogue you find yourself employing reason, built up from years of reading, personal observation and just being well-informed. You begin to score points against your opponent, who after all, has a completely different perspective of the world than you do. In a sane society, this is called "diversity of opinion." And in the land of freedom, such as freedom of speech, religion, the press, this is a good thing.
But suddenly the conversation takes a strange, truculent turn.
"You're such a racist!" scoffs the other person.
You are incredulous. All your points were well documented and a matter of researched fact. You protest their bogus opinion of you. They grimace, their faces scrunch up, and then they make that babyish voice before saying in an accusatory tone one more time, "You're just a racist."
If this has ever happened to you, the chances are very good that the other person is a progressive (or at least a liberal).
His vacuous style of arguing accomplishes two things inside his corrupt mind. First, he has declared himself the winner of the argument. Second, he has declared that he is morally superior to you.
And that's a progressive, Charlie Brown.
