Over recent twitter debates with vulgar Obamabots, we’ve come across the term “emoprogs” or “emo progressives” a lot. I am not a progressive but I certainly think this is a load of bullshit. Taken from Urban Dictionary:Note: This term was seen as divisive and has been superseded by …
Some of the brightest people I respect apparently fall into this category of “emo progressives.” Emoprogs are—according to partisan hacks in the Democratic Party—liberals who are consistently for or against certain things regardless of who is in charge. Prominent “emo progressives” include Glenn Greenwald, Noam Chomsky, Naomi Wolf, and all of Code Pink.
What is even more disgusting is the fact that the attacks being levied against Greenwald by Obama supporters are dripping with so much homophobia that if Rush Limbaugh were to utter them, the partisans at Think Progress and all of the Internet would convulse in outrage.
It appears that partisan Democrats who pretended to care about war, torture, and the rule of law and then ignore them under a Democratic president find it acceptable to mock the sexuality of prominent liberals still brave enough to question the Empire.
The same Democrats who are rejoicing that their guy in the White House is a manly terrorist-killer—who has the “balls” to use military force whenever and whether—are the same Democrats who find it so offensive that a bunch of “sissy faggots”—like Bradley Manning and Glenn Greenwald—are embarrassing Barack Obama.
In other words - “emo progressives” are people with ETHICS and MORALS and understand concepts like JUSTICE and LAW, things that RepubliZombies and DemocraZombies will never be able to comprehend. Obamabots and (the previous incarnation) the Bushbots don’t care about law, humanity, rights, and justice etc.- to them it’s all about cheering for the right team.
One more thing: if Glenn Greenwald is a “sissy” SIGN ME UP. I admire that man a lot.
