Some years ago, I put an essay on my Web site titled Progressive Voice. It was a call for progressives to speak up and counteract the shrill volume of the right wing. I also said that progressives are the real Americans, and we have to make that clear to the country.
I’ve had the occasional supportive e-mail in response. Today I got one from the other side. It demonstrates just how dangerous the right wing really is:
I glanced over your manifesto with complete shock.
Al I can say is Are you fucking kidding me?. You and any that think the way you do MUST be hunted down and permanently removed from Society.
Progressives are a cancer that has infected our great nation and MUST be eradicated. YOU are the Enemy, YOU are the traitors YOU MUST be eliminated.
