Yeah "liberals" are like "Do you believe in gay rights?" "Nope" "You're an evil person that should be locked up" "Umm, I have a right to my opinion" "No, no you don't, your opinion is wrong" "But..." "Shut up, or I'll have you arrested for hate speech" "I have the right to say what I want" "No you don't, you might offend someone" "So you're a liberal?" "Yes and a progressive" "So why are you trying to curtail freedoms and individual liberties?" "Because it's the right thing to do" "Ohhkay......but don't you believe in moral relativism?" "Yes, yes I do, no-one should be judged on their particular morality" "You just judged me though" "Yes because you're a bigot" "But by your own standard you can't make that judgement. I mean sure you can think that but if you say or do anything then by your own argument you're oppressing me with your personal morality which you admit is no better than mine so you can't claim an ob<x>jective basis for any action you take. In fact to be in accordance with your own stated views you'd just shut the hell up" "ummmm...............shut up you're a bigot".
You have them nailed, Ketsan.
Yes. They are interested in coercion, not in liberties. (Don't whoop it up conservatives. You just want to coerce different behaviors out of me.)
I believe so.
If I am not allowed to push my thinking or beliefs on someone else, then neither are they. They are no better than anyone else.
No! Liberty, Liberal, perhaps you catch the similarities.
Perhaps the ideologies are mislabeled themselves.
