The New Regressives

A High School History Lesson

          I remember it like it was yesterday. As a freshman in high school my World History and Geography teacher, Mr. Curtis, described the spectrum of political systems and organizations by drawing a large circle on the black board. On the very top at 12 o’clock he placed democracy with the Democrat Party just to the left at a minute before 12 and the Republican Party just to the right at a minute past 12. As he moved down the circle on the right he went through the various right wing political systems until he got to the Nazis and their National Socialism (fascism) on the very bottom at 6 o’clock. Then he moved down the left side of the circle adding in turn socialism, Marxism and finally communism also at the very bottom. But how could fascism and communism both occupy the same spot at the bottom of the circle, we wondered? Mr. Curtis explained that both the right and the left political extremes invariably ended up as totalitarian regimes and therefore shared the same point on the political spectrum.

It’s Not Your Parents’s Democratic Party Any More!

          Fifty years ago the Democratic Party of President John Kennedy may have clocked in at one minute before 12 on the political spectrum, but the current Democratic Party is hovering around 9 o’clock. Some liberals have slipped so far down the left side of the clock that they are actually embracing the clearly recognizable tenets of fascism. In so doing they have actually become regressives rather than progressives. If you doubt this assertion, consider the following examples of how the Democrats have become diametrically opposed to the guiding principles of a once great party to become the new face of fascism.

Resurrecting Jim Crow and Its System of Segregation: Black students on campuses throughout the country are demanding separate functions and spaces. It should be no surprise that spineless college administrators are caving in. At Harvard, America’s once premier college, black students will have their own segregated graduation separate from white students. Will they soon have separate drinking fountains, too?

Involuntary Castration of the Mentally Disabled: Today, children with the psychiatric condition known as gender dysphoria are being chemically castrated before puberty to suppress the secondary sexual characteristics of their God-given sexual assignment. This devious form of castration is being performed on children who are too young to advocate for themselves. Forced sterilization programs were abolished years ago, although, ironically, the ultra-liberal state of Oregon was still practicing eugenics until the 1980s.

No More Free Speech on College Campuses: Mario Savio, the founder of the 1960s Berkeley Free Speech Movement, would turn over in his grave if he could see what’s happening on college campuses throughout the country today! Only those who parrot the communist tripe fed to them by their depraved America-hating professors are allowed to openly express their views. Any mention of American values will likely incite violent rioting.

Love and Diversity Replaced by Hate and Conformity: Peace, love and diversity were once the mantra of the liberal left, but it has been nothing less than shocking to see the display of hatred for diverse opinions by the left since the election of President Donald Trump.

Blind support for Anti-women Islamic Extremists: We constantly hear the insulting and false epithet ‘The Republican’s War on Women’, yet the leftists in America blindly support a culture that disrespects women in the most vile ways.

Claims of White Privilege Insult all Races: The claim that Caucasians have the advantage of so-called ‘white privilege’ implies that Blacks are inherently inferior. It seems the leftists have been reading Herrnstein and Murray’s ‘The Bell Curve’ and taking it seriously.

Climate Change-Climate Justice: In their futile attempt to keep up with the real science that has debunked their hysteria, regressives have gone from global warming to climate change to climate justice. The once proud progressives are now against all progress in order to stop CO2 emissions and prevent the sky from falling. And the last thing they want is for women in Africa to have the convenience of washing machines and dryers. Now that’s climate justice!

These are but a few examples of the utter hypocrisy of the socialist-fascists who are now trying of overthrow our government.
