The media loves them and Colin Kaepernick would play for them if he could. They are out of the closet and in your face. They are on the march, determined to change America into a bright, shining beacon of socialism where white men are guilty and everyone else is a victim.
Say hello to your little friends, the progressive cadre now dominating cable news and the democrat agenda. It is a George Soros pity party where you get to bash the Founding Fathers and every American who respects them.
The progressive wrecking crew wants reparations for all injustice, not just slavery. They are “woke” to the fact that women are always mistreated, blacks are targeted by police, LGBT folks are persecuted, and babies can be killed after birth in the name of “reproductive justice.”
Above all, the progressive Huns want to loot, they will ride into the village and take 70 percent of your stuff. Don’t like it, you’re a racist, homophobe, misogynist, bigot who does not deserve to be heard. In fact, if you open your mouth, we’ll take more of your stuff.
The enlightened progressive well knows the planet will die from climate change denial unless we follow their directions explicitly. America is the problem, of course, because we don’t provide citizens with free healthcare, education, decent housing and food, a guaranteed job at a guaranteed wage where you can never be fired and where you get family leave and disability payments simply upon asking. What does any of that have to do with global warming?
Shut up or we’ll boycott you.
And what’s with these borders? What about migrant justice? All persons have the right to live in the USA! It’s only the bigots who oppose that!
Ten years ago, the progressive movement could not have fielded five presidential candidates. They are now running wild, passing out the pitchforks and whipping up the groundlings. Backed by mobs of Twitter assassins and financed by shadowy groups like MoveOn and Media Matters, the far left can hurt you quick. And will. Happily.
But what the progressives don’t know is that a backlash is coming. They surely have intimidated corporate America and have the support of the corrupt media. But fair-minded Americans understand what is happening and they don’t like it.
It is a matter of time until a group forms that will confront the totalitarian left and fight for real justice.
It is just a matter of time.
