The Queer Left's Answer to the Tea Parties

Posted by Gregory of Yardale at February 21, 2010 10:02 AM

A self-proclaimed Queer Left blogger has outlined her answer to the Tea Party movement: The Cocktail Party Movement. And its agenda is one of the most straightforward admissions of what the Progressive Left actually believes that you will ever read.

  • Nationalize the banks
  • Soak the rich with high taxes
  • Abolish the Senate
  • Abolish the Electoral College
  • Free public education through college for all
  • Free day care for elders and children
  • National health care
  • Universal accessibility
  • Abolish all student loan, credit card and mortgage debt
  • Withdraw from Iraq and Afghanistan, shift resources to the Arts, and to an independent Haiti
  • Forgiveness of all debt of developing countries
  • Outlaw invidious discrimination
  • Abolish prisons for all non violent crime, prioritize community rehabilitation for all crime
  • Decriminalize sex work and drugs
  • Open borders
  • Abolish marriage

And, of course, all of this is possible because money is an infinite resource, criminals and terrorists are simply misunderstood and need to be hugged, and traditional moral values are tools of patriarchal oppression and not the result of thousands of years of Judeo-Christian experience in what works and what doesn't.

Is this satire? Browsing other posts, I am pretty sure this person is serious, and the comments indicate that these sentiments are much supported.
