I detailed in my previous blog how the Progressives were using a methodology of forcing acceptance of perversion on society called THE OVERTON WINDOW. Progressives are the TRUE danger to society, and have been putting the pieces of America's downfall in place for almost a century now.
A BRIEF HISTORY - Woodrow Wilson started it all with the first progressive income tax (Revenue Act of 1913) and the 17th Amendment to the Constitution, which basically removed the power of the individual States to control their representation in Congress and placed it in the hands of Washington lobbyists and political power-brokers.
FDR furthered the cause of the Progressive Agenda with the federal spending on the NEW DEAL programs during his four(!!!!!) terms as President. Harry S Truman and Conservatives fought back and won a small battle in the bigger-government culture war by ratifying the 22nd Amendment to the Constitution limiting the Presidential reign to 2 elected terms.
The mainstream media, as well as our higher education system, began their radical leftward shift in the 1960s during the Viet Nam conflict and the "don't trust anyone over 30" drug-hazed counterculture.
What do Progressives want? In summary, quoting from the Socialist Party USA Statement Of Principles, they "strive to establish a radical democracy that places people's lives under their own control - a non-racist, classless, feminist socialist society...for democratic revolutions - radical and fundamental changes in the structure and quality of economic, political, and personal relations..."
The Progressives are a distinct minority in this country, yet their agenda is succeeding. How? First, by gaining elected office. They are scattered throughout Congress and the Supreme Court, and now the Presidency. Second, by controlling the mass media and entertainment industries. Third, by controlling the higher education system.
The key to the whole thing is Liberals...they think a lot like Progressives, they just don't want to take it as far...if they do, they lose their power! Progressives know that Liberals can take our society, our way of life, to the brink, but don't have the stomach for the necessary (sorry, Tony!) revolution. The Progressives are just waiting for us to get to the brink, then they will eat the Liberals up and spit out the carcasses as they shove us into a very dark abyss.
