Is it just me or does this article seem like it was written by a right-winger? If it's a parody, it should be more clear. Mr. Anon (talk) 19:56, 23 September 2012 (UTC)

The "Vast Left-Wing Conspiracy" section is clearly parody. The rest is accurate criticism of this group from the left, not the right. Secret Squirrel (talk) 21:25, 23 September 2012 (UTC)
There's definitely some accurate criticism from the left. However, many lines, particularly the opening passage (how can someone be "liberal" but not "progressive"?) seems like it could easily appear on some rightwing site. I do think the article is in need of a rewrite, or at the very least, an update. Mr. Anon (talk) 00:51, 24 September 2012 (UTC)
I'm not sure, but from my very limited understanding of American politics, "liberal" here seems to mean any position on the left including Rawlsian liberalism, while "progressive" mostly means democratic socialism or post-Marxism.
