I'm specifically not saying 'Republicans are EVUL'. I'm saying that you're judging a group of millions of people based on the behavior of one person who may or may not be a member of that group. You're doing that for "progressives" Why aren't you doing that for Republicans (more than one of whom is a sheepfucker), or right wingers (more than one of whom thinks Hitler did nothing wrong), or lunch ladies (more than one of whom is married to her cat)? Why do you only do this for progressives? And even if Spice Weasel is right and there are hundreds of people who also think this way, hundreds is still 0% of the total group. Personally, I try not to judge groups by the behavior of the 0%.
