59. True, but
when someone proclaims themselves to be a progressive, and then expresses views that are totally lacking in empathy - I will call them what they are: a hypocrite.

Just because you claim to be a Progressive doesn't mean you are. Threads like this shows everyone's True Colors.

I don't have to call anyone a hypocrite, your own words will show if you are or are not.
