Let's Remember What the Word REALLY Means...

Anti-Democracy "Progressives"
By Lowell Ponte

"I prefer the word progressive," replied New York Sen. Hillary Clinton to a YouTuber who asked during the July 23 CNN Democratic presidential debate if she considered herself a Liberal.

The word Liberal, Clinton said, has in recent decades come to be seen as a label for those favoring bigger government.

But the label progressive, she said, "has a real American meaning, going back to the Progressive Era at the beginning of the 20th Century. I consider myself a modern Progressive . . ."

From the 1920s onward, famed progressive Robert LaFollette, who served Wisconsin as governor and senator, slid deeper and deeper into a psychopathological hatred of capitalism.

By 1948, the Progressive Party presidential campaign of Henry Wallace, a former vice president under President Franklin D. Roosevelt and lover of everything Soviet, became a dust magnet for Marxists.

The label progressive became a mask worn by socialists and Communists of many hues, from pale pink to blood red, used to disguise their anti-American radical politics.

Today, kids learn NOTHING of communism and what it is and what it can do.

What it HAS done.
