Marin County resident Bookworm observes:
To Progressives, politics is no longing about people espousing different approaches to achieve the same overall goals. Instead, it’s become an existential battle against the forces of evil incarnate. That is, in their own minds, they’re not just battling evil ideas (or foolish one), they’re battling evil people. And what’s really frightening is that, to Progressives, the evil people aren’t him, they’re her.
