Quote# 7594

There are no conservative extremists. Religious extremists (liberal churches, Islamism), communists, Nazis, fascists, etc., all have one thing in common--their primary political trait is fundamentally progressive.

Um...does this guy know what progressive even is? That is, beyond the use of it as a generic insult by right-wing radio hosts?

Holy shit! I had to read that about 5 times becuase my brain refused to acknowlege it and kept on sending back messages to re-read it and that I must be misreading it.

I think without a doubt, that's the first time ever the Taliban's been called progressive.

This guy has no idea what world politics is like.
Many of the Conservatives in America would seem like left wing liberals in Iran. Many conservatives in Europe would seem like left wing liberals in America.

If Islam is progressive, then I dont know what the word progressive means.

Sure. Just like all these raging hardcore liberals below:

Jim Adkisson.


Scott Roeder.


Paul Jennings Hill.


Eric Robert Rudolph.


Michael F. Griffin.


Stephen John Jordi.

Liberal churches as religious extremists? Man, that mirror is so shiny, it makes the flash of a nuclear explosion look like a black hole.

There are extremists of all kinds. Many religious people are conservative. Liberalism is kind of in the middle of the political spectrum, a bit to the right of the middle. Many liberals are religious.

Communists, Nazis and fascists are indeed extremists, but none of them are progressive. Many of them are religious.

If there were no progressives, we would still be sitting in caves, close together to keep warm, eating berries and twigs. We would certainly not have computers and the Internet.

Please look up "extremist" in the dictionary.

There is no such thing as a non-extremist conservative. There is no such thing as an extremist liberal church.

Also, there is no such thing as a non-conservative Nazi or fascist.
