Who knew the left had a Joe McCarthy? Better question, wonder if the Black community knows about its' self-anointed protector, the POG, acting as the vanguard against economic progress?
Yeah, that's right you hippie jackasses, economic progress. I'm really hard-pressed to figure out how you sniveling bastards have the nerve to say that black communities shouldn't have coffee shops, or theatre, or art, or groceries, or anything. I understand your desire to get back at daddy Warbucks for your cul-du-sac childhood and college education, but why do you have to do it by keeping poor communities poor?
"Where will the poor live if they're chased out of Garfield?" Give me a break... when was the last time you've been in Garfield? 20% of the housing stock is vacant, and the average house sells for pocket change. There's plenty of affordable housing to go around in a dying city like Pittsburgh. Better question, why is it imperative to keep poor communities poor? Why is it so important to you to make sure that hipsters can't get a cup of coffee with a work-a-day Joe from Garfield. Or is your version of progress a stagnant ghetto, forever poor, forever segregated.
Bill Peduto can be a progressive, and liberal, and oppose you. After all, your version of a liberal quotes Lucy Parsons, whose maniac rants are the same that rally facist crackpots to arms in the streets of Gaza and Sadr City.
