Progressing Back to Hatred

The thing you have to love about progressives is that they’re ceaselessly progressing into the past. Bigotries and hatreds that should have been left behind long ago continually resurface among them.

Jew hatred went out of fashion for a while after the Holocaust, but leftists are struggling hard to bring it back again.  Note the leftist use of terms like apartheid and genocide in describing Israel – a nation that never commits anything even remotely resembling apartheid or genocide even while it is surrounded by nations that routinely practice religious and sexual apartheid and openly long for the chance to commit genocide. When left-leaning organizations like the Presbyterian Church USA divest in Israel — Israel alone — they are resurrecting an age-old foulness under the cloak of piety, its age-old disguise.

And take a look at this, via our Breitbart friends. The New York Times allowed the Freedom From Religion organization to run a full page anti-Catholic hate ad essentially demanding fewer Catholics be allowed on the Supreme Court. A religious test for government service! One would have thought we’d seen the last of such stuff a century ago. But thanks to the progressive Times, a century ago is right where we’re headed.

Maybe it is a a good idea to get rid of the airy fairy language and use a more specific term like totalitarian sociopath instead of "progressive".

Some of them are more benign than others.

Joe Biden just said that "tea baggers" are the main impediments to gun control. Joe's a go along to get along kind of guy, apparently thinks making such PC noises will provide him some kind of meaningful political future. (remember when Joe gave advice of his wife Jill holding a shotgun on the balcony of their home to hold off intruders ?) Nancy P and Harry R are vile sycophants whose brains are incapable of any independent thought.

But Barack, just down there in Austin raising more cash for his hoped for lying successor to continue the whole deal of disassembling America, he's the real deal.

When someone has convinced himself, deep down, that those with whom he disagrees aren't simply wrong or ignorant...but are in fact evil, it becomes perfectly acceptable to hate. It becomes hatred for a good cause...it's not the bad hate...like the “hate” from those evil conservatives. It is righteous hate and you are probably a racist for criticizing that righteous hate.

Before the stain of political correctness engulfed America we were essentially a forward looking nation. We laughed at old world feuds.

As immigration increased, almost all of it from the Third World, it mingled with PC and feminism and produced intersectionalism, an ideology of rainbow payback that never shuts up about the past, but a past selectively edited - by race.

One can't have Columbus Day or the Fourth of July without having colonialism and slavery shoved in our faces by an ideology that makes no secret of wanting to tear down America's structures, it's white demographic and even openly questioning why it should be beholden to a Constitution written by slave owners. On the other hand Islamic colonialism and African slavery simply never happened.

Allowing such a huge influx from the Third World is the stupidest thing this country has done since the Civil Rights era.

Hatred, Envy, Jealousy are the driving force behind the Marxist Left. It's not that they are progressing backwards towards old hatreds, they are driven by hatred, hatred is at the very core of their being....their life force....essential essence.

The Freedom From Religion organization is a a Hate Organization filled with vile individuals. Luckily the Supreme Court seems to be on the way to making them irrelevant.

"...rule by force"

Rule by force is OK if it's for the Greater Good. You can't create a brighter future for people by letting them make their own decisions.

That seems to be the theory, anyway.

As of this date I am proud to be called a racist, bigot, homophone or any other aspersion by a liberal.

Because I know that the liberal has nothing to say, and just resorts to name calling.

Now if we can get more people to grow a spine, something Trump and a few others have, we can stop this nonsense by not ignoring and cowering but by embracing and showing how evil and ignorant these libs are.

Leftist progressives are ENTITLED to their hate, class envy, and distortion of history, economics, environmental conditions, justice or anything they perceive a threat to their moral servitude to the state... equal rights to pleasure without pain.

Why does Joe Biden think Anderson Cooper is against gun control?

Kindness, compassion and "caring" are ruses and masks for progressives.

Literally a form of subterfuge.

They wear these masks in pursuit of their only common and unifying goal, as you outline...rule by force.

"Progressives" twist reality to fit their narrative. They live inside a self absorbed bubble where rational ideas and meaningful conversation does not occur. As we see with Obama, he has a rigid list of changes to be make in this country. The fact that his changes do the most damage to the people he pretends to care about does not occur to him. It not that he won't think; he can't think.
