The Progressive Blog Alliance
I was doing my daily reads and ole Ferdy the Cat had a post about The Progressive Blog Alliance. After reading the post by Ferdy I went to the PBA's homepage and started reading. Progressive?? I saw nothing progressive posted. Only the same old complaining with no solutions to offer. I did notice that it was stated "We are not Bush bashers"...Then the Mission Statement:(excerpt from)
- We demand our members to show complete intolerance for oppression, bigotry, ignorance, violence, corruption, and exploitation. We may choose to deny membership to individuals who support certain politicians; for example, George W. Bush. However, we will never require our members to subscribe to any list of creeds, tenets, or dogmas. We are not a political cult. Progressive libertarians are just as welcome as progressive socialists.
We do not represent any particular ideology. By "ideology" we firstly mean political opinions which are based upon the assumptions and biases of philosophers living between the 17th and 19th century".....
And blah blah and so on and so on. The irony in the above statement is clear to a 10 year old. Real progressives accept ALL points of view. The PBA will not accept you if you support our elected President. It will support you if you are a "progressive socialist". . No thank you.
