    This is self-abusive. What's the ideal solution? What's the goal? What action does the diarist want to happen?

    Eliminate the Bush tax cuts Eliminate Afghan and Iraq wars Do these things first before considering any cuts

      will begin to notice the way the systematically shout down and marginalize folks who point out some of the hateful, disrepectful, and non reality based rants they so casually produce on the daily.

        White progressives are not going to police themselves.

        Any more than white racists, or non-white racists, are going to police themselves.

        Valid, reasoned, and practical arguments are the only way. Even then there are no guarantees.

        H'mm. I'm not terribly into this, anymore.

        That's the way it works here.

        Were there instances that did not happen?

        If you honestly wish to influence some change here you'll have to present a more specific and cogent case than "white progressives". In the absence of that, it's hare to distinguish your contributions from the proverbial "boy crying wolf".

        hateful, disrepectful, and non reality based rants...casually produce[d] on the daily.
        Always has been true, every day, from the beginning. It's like the poop in a beautiful woman, or an average good looking one, or maybe an OK looker....

        But the "white progressives" part is wrong IMO.
