Those who know me know that I bash Progressives. I don’t go off too often, and usually I just dismiss their idiocy out of hand without much discussion. The problem I run into a lot is that people have to be taught history before they can understand the point that needs to be made. And they usually don’t have a long enough attention span to hear it.
For instance, if I tell you that abortion rights people are “anti-life” you might just roll your eyes and say “Sure, you are a 212 Dad, but you don’t have to over exaggerate all the time.” The problem is, I rarely exaggerate (unless it’s in obvious satire), because exaggeration really drives me nuts. I say what I mean.
The truth of the matter is, the abortion movement in this country (which is responsible for 10’s of millions of deaths – no exaggeration) was headed up my the Progressives. People who wanted to wipe out the Blacks as a race, kill the handicapped, sterilize the poor, etc. People like Margaret Sanger, George Bernard Shaw and Woodrow Wilson. (read End of Days or read here for more examples if you are too wimpy!)
Al Gore (who was already obviously in their camp) laid bare some of his belief in Eugenics the other day as he explained that Progressives have just evolved more than Conservatives. The implications are clear.
Anyway, read this article, or at least watch this video…
