By all means, let's call things by their real names

IOZ sez:
To the extent that we continue to bear political responsibility, I'll argue that it has mostly to do with calling things by their true names and seeing them truly.
While we're at it I've a few things to get off my chest:

1. Let's make note that what often passes for "left" or "progressive" often isn't.

2. Ethnic cleansing is ugly and intolerable, no matter who does it (such as the perps portrayed in the picture at the top of this post at Marisacat's place.

3. Although the word genocide should never be used lightly, there are indeed far too many contexts in which its use is all too appropriate (including post-Katrina New Orleans).
