The Disturbing Embrace Of Dangerous & Destructive Progressive Ideology

Join the Democrat Party!
We have two Socialists running for president and a president who's about to fly to Cuba to embrace the Communists...WH Press Secretary Tweet (satire)

History has long shown Progressives have blood on their hands. Their  embrace of brutal dictators from Soviet leaders to the likes of Castro and Che have been well documented.  Even Mr. Obama's intent to close Gitmo is more evidence of this dangerous ideology. For example, the recidivism rate for the terrorists released from Gitmo now stands at about 30%. Brutalizing their own citizens doesn't seem to phase progressives (although they pretend they are outraged).

And we are now witnessing this toxic ideology permeate American society with two progressives (some argue a Socialist and Marxist sympathizers) running for president on the Democrat ticket.  The fact that so many Americans support these two candidates should send a shiver down the spines of most reasonable and patriotic Americans.

As Michael Goodwin of the New York Post recently wrote: "Standards and excellence are now demoted to make way for race, class and gender claims...The rights of American citizens are demeaned as unearned privileges that should be offered to all comers regardless of legal status or behavior...The leaders of this assault on decency are self-desbribed warriors for social justice and income inequality. In truth, they are power-hungry elitists who enjoy considerable private wealth and the fruits of taxpayers..."

Goodwin is right of course.  Clinton---who regularly assaults Wall Street---holds it hostage to speaking fees in the $600,000.00 range while Sanders has been on the public payroll for four decades.  Even more disturbing,  Sanders rarely holds Clinton accountable for her conspicuous deceit. As I recently pointed out in a post,  Clinton has more smoking guns that the gunfight at the OK Corral.  Yet, Sanders keeps giving her a pass. While I'm not a conspiracry theorist, I find myself wondering if Bernie's run is all a ruse.

Perhaps the intent of Obama's transformation of America was to try to make us a nihilistic nation. Some of his lawless behavior would give one that impression.  And then there is the "revolutionary" angle so popular among Democrats who support Sanders. Whatever the reasons, this is clear: their embrace of progressive ideology is both dangerous and destructive to this great Republic.
