Message to Teabaggers

From Ray Pensador at Dkos:

...You will never find a hate-filled racist Progressive. You will never find an anti-intellectualism Progressive. You will never find a Progressive who does not have a clear understanding of the importance of the concept of separation between Church and State. Look as hard as you want, and you will never find a Progressive that does not accept the scientific proof that human industrial activity has a negative impact on climate change.

There are no neo-Nazi Progressives. A Progressive would never cheer upon hearing someone mention the high count of state-sponsored executions of prisoners by a State. You would never find a Progressive that, blinded by a deep-seated hate and racism, would believe that the duly elected president of the United States is not a citizen.

And, yes, even though there are Progressives that hold religious beliefs, you will never find an in-your-face bible-thumping Progressive wanting to incite the beginning of Armageddon in Israel in order to precipitate the Second Coming.

You will never find Progressives that believe that the best way to deal with a state that's literally burning is by praying for rain.

You see, Progressives believe that many of those battles were fought after the Middle Ages, and that the age of reason and enlightenment, and the renaissance, won the day.

So, to my dear teabagger readers, think carefully about these things. Are you really that proud that only within your ranks can you find racists, and extreme religious fundamentalists, and sadists who cheer at the thought of an uninsured man being left to die if he gets seriously ill and can't afford to pay for healthcare?

And, please, don't misunderstand me. I know that not all of you teabaggers are like that. But it is a fact that only within your ranks can you find such despicable characters. Think about that. And thanks for reading.

Even the dumest teabagger should understand this

Between the years 1980 and 2005 80% of all new income generated in this country went to the richest 1%. Let me put that in terms that even you fatass teabaggers, sorry, can understand. Say 100 Americans get together and order a 100 slice pizza, the pizza arrives, they open the box, and the first guy takes 80 slices. And if someone suggests "Why don't you just take 79 slices?" THAT'S SOCIALISM!
