Leaving the left

Keith Thompson in SF GATE (thats Frisco in the PRK) I can no longer abide the simpering voices of self-styled progressives -- people who once championed solidarity:
"These days the postmodern left demands that government and private institutions guarantee equality of outcomes. Any racial or gender 'disparities' are to be considered evidence of culpable bias, regardless of factors such as personal motivation, training, and skill. This goal is neither liberal nor progressive; but it is what the left has chosen. In a very real sense it may be the last card held by a movement increasingly ensnared in resentful questing for group-specific rights and the subordination of citizenship to group identity. There's a word for this: pathetic. "
Absolutely. Welcome Keith. You've seen the light (or found your senses).
