PC Thought Police

An interesting phenomenon among progressive blogs is a refusal to reexamine the effectiveness of running a PC thought police. As an example, even on a post highly critical of President Obama over immigration, my comment which linked to an article questioning the progressive credentials of Sotomayor was removed because the human rights organization that owns the blog had taken a strong stance against her right-wing critics. My question, of course, is how can progressives ever learn anything if they are so rigidly doctrinaire that they won’t even entertain respectful discussion of issues they themselves raise?
