Progressively backwards.

Indeed, organizers of the march had a list of economic imperatives that drove them out onto the National Mall that day. They weren’t simply interested in equality based on the color of their skin; they wanted a system of fairness in employment, in federal programs, and in the economy as a whole. Their demands included “A massive federal program to train and place all unemployed workers — Negro and white — on meaningful and dignified jobs at decent wages” and “A national minimum wage act that will give all Americans a decent standard of living.”

Of course, blacks experienced suppression in these fields at an unparalleled level. As King reflected during his famed “I Have A Dream” speech during the march, “One hundred years [after the emancipation proclamation], the colored American lives on a lonely island of poverty in the midst of a vast ocean of material prosperity.”

Fifty years from the day he said those words, the same holds true.

There’s so much wrong with the post that a book-length response would be more in order. The minority voter suppression myth is trotted out, of course, despite coming off an election where a vulnerable incumbent who had no business winning prevailed because of the turnout of African-American voters. This is something progressives have to cling to in order to keep up their goal of institutionalizing voter fraud.

Many of the poverty statistics regarding the black population are true but the author commits some errors of omission in failing to mention that much of that crushing poverty is occurring in places where leftists have held sway for decades or that things have gotten worse while an African-American has been president.

Of course, the notion that the bloated federal bureaucracy can systematically introduce fairness into, well, anything is where progressive thought fails utterly.

Think Progress espouses progressive ideals and this post is pretty much a catalogue of just what miserable failures those ideals are when expressed as public policy. Thankfully for them, another hallmark of progressivism is a complete inability to recognize the real parts of reality so they can continue on their blissfully unaware ways.

Point of fact: institutions can institutionalize something that does not exist. From Karl Rove in 2005 to the Pennsylvania legislature in 2012, no one has been able to assert that any widespread voter fraud exists in this country. You can keep making the argument, steve, as long as you are comfortable with lie.

What we do know is that the Department of Justice looked into these voter suppression efforts by several states and blocked them prior to the election of 2012 (apparently won by a guy who didn't deserve to win because of this magic, unproved, and undocumented voter fraud) because of their "disparate impact on minority voters."

So, lets play a game. The next time you accuse people of voter fraud, why don't you give us an election stolen by voter fraud. On the other hand, don't. People who believe such undocumented things are generally like to cite the oh-so-important Seattle mayor election where no fraud was ever proved, but smoke = fire when you're to keep poor Democrats from voting

It's only undocumented because the government refuses to document it.
It's on you tube, for pete's sake.
And here's your example: Norm Coleman lost to Al Franken in the Senate race in Minnesota. After the first canvass, Coleman's lead was down to 206 votes. That was followed by months of wrangling and litigation. In the end, Franken was declared the winner by 312 votes.

But: comparing criminal records with voting rolls, the group identified 1,099 felons -- all ineligible to vote -- who had voted in the Franken-Coleman race.

That's 1,099 KNOWN fraudulent votes- that's not even the scope we'd catch with more accurate controls looking for non-resident or non citizen voters.

And that 1,099 far exceeds the spread in the return.

So there you have it. A sitting United States Senator may very well be in office because of voter fraud. And you don't care.
