A Big Welcome to the Back Porch

Progressive Alaska welcomes a new progressive blog, The Back Porch, to the Alaska Progressive Blogs blogroll.

Ryan Knight is a young educator, and like John and Heather Aronno, from The Alaska Commons, Ryan is a student at the University of Alaska Anchorage.

Here's Ryan's short description of what she is now doing:

By day I'm an educator making a difference in the lives of my community's youngest citizens, and a senior at the University of Alaska Anchorage. By night I am a human rights activist, and political commentator.


Welcome to PA, Ryan.

Your comment was removed as overly offensive and hurtful to somebody you obviously don't even know.

But it's OK for you to call Andrew Breitbart a racist and Palin a slut ?
And it's OK for you and your cronies to call millions of us "teabaggers"? Your hypocrisy is overwhelming.

BTW anyone who writes "By day I'm an educator making a difference in the lives of my community's youngest citizens," is an egotist.

us "teabaggers"

So, you are agreeing that you are a teabagger?

"WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report) -One week after their first national convention, the self-styled Teabaggers are facing an identity crisis after one of their members finally Googled the slang term "teabag."

"I was wondering why every time I told people I was a Teabagger they kind of started giggling in an embarrassed way," said Tracy Klugian, a Teabagger from Elyria, Ohio. "I was like, what the heck? Maybe I should use the Google and see what this is all about."

After Mr. Klugian Googled the word "teabag," he was shocked by what he discovered and shared his information with the Teabaggers' leadership, who are now actively looking for a new name for the group."

Yawn. Nothing you say in that tone is going to help your cause, not now, not ever. Why bother? Go vent somewhere else, and maybe throw in a few hours of volunteer work for the candidates of your choice. Much more productive!

I really don't want to fall into painting political conservatives with a single brush, so do your party of choice a favor and get to work instead of whining on progressive blogs.

And yet you are apparently a supporter of a blog that uses the kind of "tone" that calls women "sluts". Is that helping your cause ?

It's funny , all I did was hold up a mirror and yet "progressives" don't seem to have the awareness to recognize what they are seeing is a reflection of themselves. Go figure.

Yowch! Well Anonymous, I am sorry you feel that way, but ranting isn't going to make a difference. If you feel strongly, do as I have, write your own blog, and share your opinions with the rest of us. Just try to do so in a calm and respectful manner since it will go a long way in helping others to consider your point of view. In the meantime, have a great night, and God bless.
