One thing that will never cease to amaze me about the liberal/progressive mindset is when they express sheer astonishment at what’s happening in our society today. Much like when President Obama blames “Washington politics” for problems facing the American people, the left acts like they played no role in the process. Think about the insanity of that for a moment. Progressives and liberals can’t seem to wrap their minds around the fact that decades worth of policies purposely aimed at turning American society into a liberal utopia are the very reason we’re in this mess to begin with. The definition of “progressive” is pretty straight forward. It’s defined as “happening or developing gradually or in stages, proceeding step by step.” So, that’s the definition, but what does it look like in real life? Well, it looks a lot like this…
That’s right, progressive policies have led our society down the path where black Americans are no longer responsible for…well…anything. Watching this video reminded me of the saying “even a blind squirrel finds a nut once in a while.” I say this in regards to how Hillary Clinton handled the exchange, she was spot on! If only white Americans are to blame, why even address the black community? In the exchange with the black lives matters movement, you heard Clinton being accused of “victim blaming,” for pointing out that if only white people are causing the problem, then she would only speak to them. Isn’t it funny to watch a progressive fall into the very trap that they themselves have created? When you create terms like “victim blaming,” you really shouldn’t be surprised when you’re accused of it. And when you convince an entire race that all their problems are caused by another race, one that you happen to belong to, don’t act all indignant when you aren’t able to escape your own creation.
Although the words have become somewhat interchangeable over the past decade, “progressive” was a term created by the left at a time when the term “liberal” began to take on negative connotations. We all know how the Democrats like to change words to better serve a narrative (think victim blaming). We also know how Democrats savor every opportunity to divide the American voters into small groups. And they do this under the guise of “tolerance,” and “equality.” But what happens when you lose control of these groups? The answer is simple; the groups take control of themselves. Just look at what transpired this week.
So, there you go, now only black “transgender” lives matter. Just a few weeks ago, we actually had former Governor Martin O’Malley apologize for making the outrageous statement that “all lives matter.” No word yet from the former Maryland Governor on whether or not he now plans to apologize to non-transgender black Americans, you know, since the rules have changed again. The more we allow politicians and activists to divide us, the weaker we all become. But this is not happening by accident. Everything happening in our society today has been planned out in advance. This is what progressive means, and it’s not even close to being over.
In a Rasmussen poll taken in 2005, 68% of Americans were opposed to the legalization of gay marriage. Progressive policies and activism took a mere 10 years to turn the tables to the point where 59% now support the cause. In fact, merely holding the view that marriage is defined as the union between one man and one woman is now considered bigotry, the terms mother and father are being banned in schools, and Bruce Jenner is now officially a hero for wearing a dress and high heels. And if you have a problem with any of that, well, then you have the problem. Think about that the next time a liberal/progressive tells you “that will never happen.” Not only will it happen, but it will be far worse than the initial concern.
You don’t need to look any further than what happened this week in Virginia to understand the movement. Vester Flanagan was a career victim. He embodied everything the progressive movement stands for. He was black, a sodomite, and saw racism everywhere. Within minutes of the tragic shooting, activists were actually attacking “whiteness.” Black lives matter activist DeRay Mckesson Tweeted “some say disgruntled employee, others say terrorist. Whiteness will explain away nearly anything.” This is where we’re at as a society. As far as Mckesson is concerned, compassion should only apply when black Americans are the victims. When they perpetrate the crime…not so much.
Here’s the bottom line. We’re heading down a very dangerous path. The left will continue to push issues further and further. It’s the very definition of who they are. It doesn’t matter to them what’s happening to our society. It doesn’t matter how many lives are lost. It only matters that they win. Anyone who thinks that the SCOTUS decision on sodomy-based “marriage” ends the fight is sadly mistaken. Has the anger of the LGBT community diminished since the ruling? Of course not, and it never will. The one thing that always remains constant is this. When it comes to liberal/progressive activists, there’s nothing you could ever give them that would be enough.
