“Progressives” would like us to believe that “progressivism” is forward thinking; just liberalism by another name. For anyone with observational and memory skills however, it is clear that there are generally three possible manifestations of “progressivism”. They are:
Clearly, these three manifestations are more similar than dissimilar. Just read Hitler’s Mein Kampf in which he explains the similarity of his own Fascism and Stalin’s Socialism.
While I detest all three manifestations of “progressivism”, I have come to believe that it would be almost a complement to President Obama and his band of followers to define them as Socialists. In reality, they represent actions and attitudes more closely matched with Fascism.
How can I say such a thing, you might ask. It is easy and it is correct. Look at the use of the power of the IRS to restrict the actions of those opposing the will of Obama. Look at the hacking of reporters of the alternative media. Look at the lies being told by the administration regarding the terrorist attack in Benghazi and the implication that the President was and is at least partially sympathetic with islamist terrorists.
As if that those examples are not enough, how about this? According to the New York Times (June 6, 2013), “The Obama administration is secretly carrying out a domestic surveillance program under which it is collecting business communications records involving Americans…The order…signed in April…directs …Verizon Business Network Services to turn over ‘on an ongoing daily basis’ to the National Security Agency all call logs ‘between the United States and abroad’ or ‘wholly within the United States, including local telephone calls’ “.
Of course the Obama administration declined to comment but did not deny the report.
Meanwhile, Obama has appointed U.S. ambassador to the U.N., Susan Rice (the woman who lied about Benghazi to help Obama be re-elected) to be his national security advisor. He also nominated Samantha Power to replace Rice as U.S. ambassador to the U.N. Power is known for blaming America for not allowing other countries to be as successful as the United States. Both of these people are bad for America!
This is extremely scary stuff, very similar to what happened in previous nations such as Stalin’s Russia, Mao’s China, and Hitler’s Germany which became “progressive” under messianic and ruthless leaders. We will continue on that same road until we, as citizens, pull our collective head out of our collective derriere, and throw these “progressive” bums OUT!
