This fits in with his hardcore extremist followers being cultists.

This video is very instructive on just how the left “argues.”
After the progressive leftist Joe Klein babbles on about a “national sugar rush”, Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin points out that his theory has been disproved by actual research on the subject. Firearm related violence has gone down over the past 40 years and, the federal ten year ban on certain semi-automatic rifles inflicted on law abiding US citizens had no effect on violent crimes committed with semi-automatic rifles (crimes committed with semi-automatic rifles didn’t go down during the ban and they didn’t go up after it ended).
How did the members of the “reality based” progressive left react to actual facts from carefully researched data?
They denied reality and repeated their talking points. Which is fairly consistent behavior pattern for “progressive” leftists. Reality is less important than their political agenda.
Keep in mind they are discussing the Colorado theater shooting. It came out later that the murderer was a progressive leftist. A staunch supporter of the so-called “occupy” movement and a volunteer campaign working for Barack Hussein Obama. It’s a fairly safe bet that he is politically aligned with Joe Klein.

A self-described Obamacare “cheerleader” is upset that she actually has to pay for health care.
“I’ve been a cheerleader for the Affordable Care Act since I heard about it and I assumed that it was designed for people in my situation,” she told KOIN. “I was planning on using the Affordable Care Act and I had done the online calculator in advance to make sure I was going to be able to afford it.”
Her husband works for a non-profit organization that pays for his health care, but the couple is unable to afford to have her and their son covered under his plan. And she’s been told their combined income is too much to qualify for a subsidized health care plan under Cover Oregon.
“It wasn’t until I started the process and got an agent that I started hearing from them I wasn’t going to qualify for subsidies because I qualify on my husband’s insurance,” she told KOIN.
Mr Green sums up this tale of angst and woe:
In other words, Miss Anonymous supported ObamaCare when she thought you were going to pay for it.
Scratch a prog, find a greedy, grubby thief.
One of the comments to the post gets to the heart of the matter:
…the article says the combined income disqualified them from subsidies (in addition to her being eligible for her husband’s plan, I assume). I believe that’s over $94,200. Cost of living aside, that’s decent money.
Now here’s what happened: Husband previously insured everyone on his plan. Obamacare came along and they decided they would drop the wife and child from his policy during open enrollment. The expectation was that, according to the online calculator, they’d be able to get insured free or close to free. This saving the family ~$125 a month. So he dropped them with the expectation that they would have coverage on January 1. Unfortunately for them, the agent actually appeared to do his job and confirmed that their income was too high and she had qualified for her husband’s plan. Now it’s too late to add them back to his policy.
Basically, it’s not that they CAN’T afford it, it’s that they don’t WANT to pay for it – at our expense. I feel sorry for the child. It has to be raised by a couple on unprincipled degenerates.
I’ve often pointed out that a good way to find out what leftist are up to is to listen to what they are accusing those they see as their political enemies of.
Case in point, racism. The left has been playing the so-called “Race Card” so often since our Dear Leader started his run for his “Occupy the White House” gold tour, that even the self-identified “fake journalists” at Comedy Central have called them on it. It has been become their default reply to anybody who dares to disagree with their far left extremist ideology.
Now if you were to look for actual examples of racism, you would find the “progressives” who toss out the charge, guilty of what they accuse other of, more often than not. Case in point, democrat election campaigns pay their white staffers more than black or hispanic staffers.
“African American staffers on Democratic federal-level campaigns are paid 70 cents on the dollar compared to their white counterparts; Hispanics are paid 68 cents on the dollar,”
The study goes on to point out, while Republican campaigns tend to hire more white men than the democrats, they are much better at paying their minority staffers what they pay the white staffers.

Here is what you probably know, kid brings a shotgun to school (a “gun free zone”) and shoots another student before killing himself. The student he shot later died from her wounds inflicted by the kid who ignored the numerous victim disarmament laws in place.
Here is something you probably haven’t heard, because it doesn’t fit the media narrative. One of the law flaunting murder’s fellow students described him as ”a very opinionated Socialist.” He also was, like our Dear Leader, a Keynesian.
He was also a strong proponent of so-called “gun control” laws. Yet, he decided to advance his political views through the barrel of a gun. Guess that makes him a good progressive.
Which is the message the “traditional” main stream media doesn’t want getting out.
Now imagine how they would have handled this story if this murderer had political leans anywhere to the right of center.

“That eugenics was part of the progressive agenda is one of the most heavily-airbrushed features of history.”

Replace “racism” with “communism” and I defy you to tell the difference between MSNBC and a 1958 John Birch Society newsletter.
