good versus evil

A newcomer to this blog left an interesting comment on my post thank you, which was about the House’s passage of the health-care reform bill. Hoot Gibson writes: In the words of our Assclown VP…”I’ve just found a fucking idiot’s blog”. You Marxist freaks really do exist….
You can read it yourself, I don’t delete comments. That First Amendment thingy, ya know…
Now, I’ve always considered myself a moderate progressive. Sure, I almost always vote democratic, but I thought Bush 41 was decent enough. Anyone who listened to Obama’s campaign rhetoric must have known that he’s not the most progressive guy in Washington, by a long shot. The health-care reform bill he signed looks more like the proposals set forth by republicans in 1993, in opposition to HillaryCare.
Point is this: There are a growing number of far-right folks who see everything as either good or evil. Right or wrong. Godly or Godless. That’s not the way the real world works. Especially in politics, where compromise is an essential aspect of the game.
These far-right folks spit on people, use racist and homophobic epithets, and threaten – sometimes even commit – acts of violence. All in the name of patriotism. All in the name of God. How the hell can they get away with that?
