Progressivism Has Been “Outed”

by Arnold Ahlert - February 25th, 2011 - Canada Free Press

Many Americans, perhaps for the first time in their lives, are beginning to recognize the contemptible nature of progressivism. How does one defend the total abandonment of the democratic process, occurring first in Wisconsin and then in Indiana, where Democrats legislators have literally run away from their responsibilities? One can’t—without revealing the bankruptcy of one’s own convictions. The most satisfying aspect of it all? Americans are getting a daily dose of progressivism’s only unalterable tenet: the ends justify the means.

For those of us who have long been paying attention, this isn’t news. Yet plenty of Americans scoffed at the idea that those who have long engaged in class warfare, stoked racial divisiveness, and fanned the flames of national self-loathing were anything more than people expressing a different viewpoint.

It is a different viewpoint, just a contemptible one. It is a viewpoint of self righteous rage and hate aimed at anyone who dares disagree with their ignorant and childish views. The reality is that nothing they believe can be defended. Socialism HAS been tried, even if they childishly insist it hasn't and "we just need to do it right this time." The reality? Socialism always fails. It always will. The concept itself is corrupt.

As Mona Charen noted in her article about this same subject, had Republicans dared do the same things being done in Wisconsin and other states where Democrats lost, they would be condemned as “anti-democratic,” “obstructionist,” and “radical.”

Progressives show no class. They tell constant lies about anyone who opposes them. They even tell lies about what they believe. Now they are running away like a little five year old holding his breath to "stop the votes" of the legislators who won the elections. They proclaim they believe in Democracy and yet the minute they lose they subvert Democracy with every power they can bring to bear.

It is obvious to anyone with a brain. Progressives stand for nothing except tyranny.
