Response to ConservativeDemocrat (Reply #193)

Wed Jun 3, 2015, 02:16 AM

194. If what you say is true, one would be able to point out a purity troll.

So have at it. Give me examples of what you've seen.

All I have seen is accusations and ridicule such as the pony comment. I don't see anyone coming close to demanding purity at all. What I see is people fighting for what they believe in. What's wrong with that?

From another post I wrote yesterday I believe:

Well, the history of this country is full of rights that were won by those you think will never be satisfied. That's a good thing. As soon as you get complacent the corporatists come in and take things over. And the fight is far from over. Look at all the systemic racism/sexism/homophobia in this country. Should we settle for that? No! We keep fighting. Look at the income disparity. Should we settle for that? No! We keep fighting. That's what democracy is about. You want to sit back and be happy with a few bread crumbs, have at it, but don't chastise people who are continuing to fight for equality and justice for all and who continue to fight for our constitutional rights.

You tell us we will never be satisfied and then tell us we have to be part of some larger movement. We are part of a larger movement. But you resent us for it. I believe it's because you are fine with corporate/RW policy. Progressives are not. Progressives seem to never be satisfied because we have a Dem POTUS who is enacting/enforcing/FIGHTING FOR Republican corporate policy. Why should we be satisfied with that? We should not be and so we continue to fight for what is right for the American people, not for global corporations.
