Why Are Progressives So Dangerous? Well, Because They Are + I Can Prove It

Progressive Parents Refuse To Tell Child Its Sex...The Onion

  • I've often said I don't have a problem with liberals. Many liberals are simply misguided and stupid. Progressives, on the other hand, can be dangerous.
  • Recent data from New York State's Department of Corrections reports some very disturbing facts. In 2012 alone, 250 murderers and sexual predators were set free. Some of those freed had been arrested over 40 times. And who exactly are these people? One woman beat her 4-year old to death for drinking out of the toilet. She was sent to jail in 1994. She was released this past December. Another man strangled a 16 year old to death with is bare hands then he raped her corpse. He was sent to jail in 1981 and released last August. NY State has long been run by progressive politicians.
  • But one does not have to stop at NY State to see evidence of what distorted progressive ideology does to major American cities. Just take a few moments to look at the current state of cities like Detroit, Chicago, Philadelphia, Camden, Cleveland and a host of other cities run by progressives for decades. The murder rates in many of these cities surpassed the rates of troop deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan over the same period during the wars.
  • Just last week, the progressives at the FDA decided that a young girls, as young as 15, can purchase the morning-after pill without a prescription and without parental consent. Yet, these same children cannot get into a movie theatre to watch an R rated movie or purchase cigarettes. Forget the fact, that many young teens engage in reckless sex---41% of children are born out of wedlock today the rate is almost double for young black women. Forget the fact that the morning-after pill has some dangerous side effects such as excessive bleeding, nausea and vomiting.
  • And look what we're witnessing coming out of the Gosnell abortion murder trial. One of the many reasons the progressive media has not reported on this story for the last two years is quite simple to understand: they know there are hundreds of other Gosnell's out there.
  • Columbia University, a major progressive institution, actually hired a former domestic terrorist, Kathy Boudin, who is a felon. One of her crimes: being part of a gang that killed two police officers and a Brinks armored  car guard. Her group also planned on bombing the Officer's Club at Fort Dix, NJ.  One of her cohorts in crime said Boudin wanted to use "anti-personnel bombs" because she wanted to kill people as well as damage property. She was paroled in 2003.
  • And since the Boston bombings, we've learned that our intelligence agencies were warned about the Tsarnaev brothers well in advance.  But it's clear now that progressive political correctness was complicit in these crimes largely due to our administration refusal to connect the dots to radical Islam. We saw the same warped political correctness among our own press and our own government with regard to the Ft. Hood shootings. His own colleagues called him belligerent and paranoid. We learned he communicated about suicide bombings with Anwar al-Awiaki, the American born al-Qaeda leader. But it didn't end there. The Ft. Hood shooting, to this day, is still considered "workplace violence" by this administration, not terrorism. Michael Goodwin, NY Post
  • We are also learning that our warped political correctness and progressive ideology toward illegal immigration actually kills. In addition to the Tsarnaev brothers who were given asylum, Ramzi Yousef, the mastermind of the first WTC attack in 1993, was granted asylum. Gazi Ibrahim Mezer, plotted to bomb sites in NYC, also tried to get asylum. He missed his asylum hearing and a judge ordered him out of the country. Mezer ignored the order. He was arrested in 1997 after a roommate tipped of the police to the bomb plots. There are countless other examples. M. Malkin
  • And, of course, there was the attack on Benghazi. Three reports, two non-partisan, pointed to significant systemic failures including the failure of leadership at the top. In other words, Hillary Clinton bears much of the responsibility for the attack.
  • And how did these progressives respond to questions about Benghazi? If you recall, Hillary famously bellowed: "What difference, at this point, does it make?" And just last week, the fake, phony and back-stabbing progressive fraud, John F. Kerry said of Benghazi: "I do not want to spend the next year coming up here talking to you about Benghazi.
  • Just as disturbing, after every terrorist attack, we have the same responses from the administration. These people were either "lone wolves" or "radicalized" in America. We always find out later those claims were absurd. When it comes to terrorists, there is no such thing as a lone wolf.
  • These are but a few examples of the dangers of progressive ideology. I didn't even touch on the massive killings and slaughter of innocents  associated with the likes of Stalin, Pol Pot, Castro and other progressive tyrants.
  • And for those who might counter it's absurd to connect progressive ideology to the likes of Communism and Socialism, it's not. Socialism and Communism are largely economic systems while progressivism is just the political side of the same coin.
And I don't even have time to get started on the progressive media. But, if you are interested, read some of my previous posts. I take them to task on a regular basis

Postscript: Since this posted, the progressive political class in NYC passed bills to give sanctuary to illegal aliens with felony records. In addition, they will ignore ICE warrants. Moreover, Al Sharpton is now considered the shadow NYPD police commissioner. NY Post

In addition, the Obama administration negotiated an Iran Deal, one of his biggest blunders to date. Moreover, these warped policies have led our enemies not to fear us or respect us.
