The Anti Progressive Thread

So, it seems that some want their own little safe space where they can all bask in the glow of socialism without reproach, 'cause everyone who shows up with facts automatically qualifies as a "lecturer" and a "troll" & the micro-aggressions give them headaches. Wah frickin' wah...

Fine.

This thread is where we'll dissect that little utopia into it's distinct parts & feed it back to them, tenfold.

Everyone welcome here. If you can defend your position with facts, post something. If you can't, consider yourselves beat & go back to the feel good place...

So, the first topic I'd like to dissect is, what the hell took the NDP so long to decide to do nothing, diddley-squat, with the Royalty Review?

There are some on these boards who feel that doing nothing & taking the better part of a year to do it has not chased off investment. They do not understand that the longer indecision reigns, the less confidence investors will have & they will go elsewhere to find a safer place to invest. As investors, their job is to invest money, not wait while some green, inexperienced government vacillates & waffles over Royalty Rates until the cows come home. What is so difficult with that concept? How long should investors wait? A day? A week? A month? A year? Too late...

So, here we are, months later & the decision is "no decision, we're not gonna do anything" & somehow that's hailed as progress? WTF?

The people in this province who were not NDP supporters in the first place could have told them that very thing on day one! And saved investment in the process!!!

The next one I'm going to tackle is the BS concept that the Knotheads are somehow supportive of Big Oil. However, offerings of beer have been made & that takes priority over the Knotheads.

If you have something to offer in the mean time, feel free.

In other words, everyone is not welcome here. Why beat around the bush?

Hey, if you can defend your position, feel free. You haven't been able to anywhere else, I don't see that changing here. You avoid answering questions &, when the going gets tough & you are unable to respond to facts, you accuse people of trolling & lecturing & start doing the "Progressive Squirm", red herrings, ad homs, strawman arguments, whatever you can do to distract from the topic at hand. Your latest incarnation is that goofy thread you just started...

The thing is, I've been using kid gloves everywhere else. This thread, it's open season. Prepare to be offended.

(Haven't forgot about the "Knotheads supporting Big Oil" BS...)

So, over the course of the last few years there have been a number of left based or oriented news sources either editing comments or outright banning comments. Granted, there are trolls on both sides of the argument but by selectively editing or outright banning comments, any legitimate criticism is immediately sent to the bit bin. How does that further the discussion?

The Grunion is the latest to fall into this ever-widening hole.

Quote:
The Guardian has announced it will close comments underneath articles on race, immigration, and Islam. The reason, according to the ultra-progressive newspaper, is that such topics attract an “unacceptable level of toxic commentary.”
In other words, they can't defend their position.

Curious that the ones who preach "Freedom of Speech" the loudest are the first to knuckle under...

On New York City Council's proposed pay raise.

Council clowns’ modest pay proposal

This one line paragraph sums it up perfectly:

Progressive leadership in action.
Yep...

Did you see the "progressive" rant against the Doritos Superbowl ad featuring an unborn baby:

Abortion Rights Group Attacks Doritos Super Bowl Ad for "Humanizing" Fetus - The Gateway Pundit

Quote:
The pro-abortion rights group NARAL Pro-Choice America attacked Doritos for “humanizing” a fetus depicted in ultrasound imaging in an ad promoting the popular snack chip that aired during the Super Bowl on Sunday night.
Humanizing a human baby? Perfect!

+ YouTube Video

Can you blame them Macfury? They've worked really hard to build the reality distortion field that makes those little clumps of tissue expendable. Ultrasound to a progressive is like sunshine to a vampire. I'm sure that commercial burned their eyes.
