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.
