There is plenty of hypocrisy to go around. In one sense you are right that the thread would be more civil without Napa as there wouldn't be anyone who is willing to voice views different from all the progressive bullies here with to bash.
Ew, progressives, (By they way I'm not) evil wicked people. However, if the definition means being against (here we go TT, one day you'll really have to try and refute some of them) racism, bigotry, sexism, know-nothing-ism, anti-science, mocking of the disabled, mocking of POWs, demagoguery and lying daily on a monumental scale, then I guess I'm one of them. Didn't think any of those things I've been against for all my life could be taken to be controversial EXCEPT for people who support, or engage in, one or more of those things.
