Part of the essence of being a "progressive" "liberal" left-winger.
Like Barack Hussein Barry Soetoro Obama II.
A good-sized, but far from exhaustive, listing of "progressive" hypocrisies. Do read it all.
One of the most blatant, intolerable hypocrisies is that of those stupid young (and also old) "progressives" who claim to be "anti-war". Of course, they're only like that when a Republican is in the White House. When a Democrat, like Bill Clinton, and currently Barack Obama, is in the White House, anything goes, absolutely anything, for any reason or for no reason at all. Hell, Obama could become the next Hitler or Hirohito or Saddam or Arafat and the "progressives" would STILL NOT take to the streets, calling him a horrible, evil monster-terrorist, a murderer, a Nazi, a barbarian, and they sure as hell won't lynch and burn an effigy of him... whereas they did all of that crazy crap when Bush had just a couple of wars going (today I've literally lost count as to how many Obama has going now, and I see he's getting ready to start a war in Syria too).
