All well and good, but the problem comes when people actually identify with some place on the political spectrum, resulting in the caricature of the 'lefty' that the OP gives. Sadly there are people who just appropriate a political 'style' without ever attempting to critically reflect on issues, or come up with novel ways of framing problems (which, is precisely what a progressive left should be doing, if such a thing exists today).
On the other hand, the OP fulfils the caricature of the reactionary goon with every post: a shit-flinging chimp whose intelligence is inversely proportionate to his neo-McCarthyite paranoia.
