And Another Example…

Gay dude raised as a Democrat dogma drone starts thinking for himself, personally experiences the failures of Democrat policies, realigns as Republican. When he comes out as Republican, his Democrat family and friends reject him. (HT: Runningrn)

When, in my adulthood, the liberal policy agenda became problematic for me, I found myself at a loss. I began to raise questions with my family and friends, and met resistance. It was not because my concerns were particularly inappropriate; I was just not supposed to be questioning at all.

One could disagree with nuances, but not the judgment of the (then) president, or the party. Period. The irony of this apparent intolerance for diversity of thought by the party claiming to champion the rights of groups underserved by the status quo was not lost on me.

For the first time in my progressive life, standing up for the values that I most strongly espouse—truth, morality, self-reliance, boundaries, tolerance, and a healthy dose of Jewish skepticism—was damaging my reputation and character. When I publicly opposed my dad’s support of the Iran deal, I was admonished. I had few friends with whom I could have a civil political conversation: one stopped all communication with me for two weeks because Trump won the presidency.

If Republicans are bad, Trump is nothing less than Satan embodied. Post-election family gatherings devolved into group Trump-bashing, which intensified as more rumors of my dubious views wafted across town. I did not even bother going to gay pride because it was fused with a Resist march. If you do not want to impeach our president, you have no place in gay life.

I was labeled a white supremacist by a friend I’ve known my entire life, and completely dropped with no explanation by another dear friend and self-anointed giant of the gay civil rights movement to whom my father had introduced me 15 years ago.

If the left were secure that their policies worked and their ideas were the right ones, would they have so much hostility toward people who question them?

Progressives: Sugar Is Bad, Heroin Is a Personal Lifestyle Choice That We Don’t Want to Judge

In its purest form, social progressivism means using public funding to provide Viagra to people with AIDS so they don’t have badfeels about not being able to have sex. Seattle, the booby hatch on Puget Sound, is planning on spending two million dollars to help heroin users shoot up (They are calling their tax-funded shooting gallery, in a beautiful exercise of Orwellian Bureaucratese a “‘Community Health Engagement Location.”) while simultaneously charging a “sugar tax” on beverages. Because progressive compassion means facilitating heroin addiction (“it would be MEAN to stigmatize drug addicts 😢😂😭😪😥😰😩”) but punishing those filthy low-lifes who want to drink a Coke or a Gatorade. (“People who drink Soda probably voted for DRUMPF! 😡😡😡😡😡😡”)

Maybe it’s because heroin makes you skinny, but sugar makes you fat. That sounds pretty similar to the way a progressive would think.
