    If this woman were not Latina, and not from PR, she would not have been shouted down. She was not disrespected because of her politics, but because of the color of her skin, and her Spanish accent. And because the Neanderthals assumed she was an immigrant.

    We -- the progressives who inhabit this site -- don't shout people down and treat them like dogshit just because we disagree with them. And we shouldn't condone those who do. That's not how we roll. We're better than that.

    Do you know this woman personally? Is that how you would treat her yourself? Really?

      or what the Republican Party has become nor anyone who aligns themselves with them.  And while it's not my style to shout people down,  in fact it's one of the things I despise about right wingers on tv,  this woman deserved to have her eyes opened.
