Have Progressive Socialists Destroyed the Democrat Party?
REGIONAL – In case you haven’t noticed Democrats are on the warpath with President Donald Trump and his administration, and there doesn’t seem to be an end to the conflict anytime soon. Even before Trump took the oath of office, Congressional Democrats were already ringing the bell of impeachment and it continues to resonate today.
Certain media outlets are responsible for fanning the vitriolic flames, but many believe the Democrat Party as a whole is quickly evolving from Classical Liberalism into something dangerously radical.
The basic philosophy behind Classical Liberalism is actually not far from values held by Conservatives. Classical Liberals are historically Constitutionalists and staunch advocates for due process, civil rights, and human rights. Unlike the modern Progressive Liberal, Classical Liberals believe in smaller government, a free market, and self-responsibility. But things began to change around the turn of the century, and all hell broke loose when today’s Progressives learned that half the country wanted Donald Trump to run against Hillary Clinton. And since his 2016 victory over Clinton, the majority of the Left has abandoned all desire to work harmoniously with Republicans; instead, they are full steam ahead on a daily rotation of conspiracies and unfounded scandals.
Today’s Democrat Party, especially U.S. Congressional Democrats, have thrown Classical philosophy to the wind and are now demonizing anyone associated with the Trump administration. California Congresswoman Maxine Waters made it very clear what the “Resistance” should do when they see Trump supporter or members of the Trump administration. Waters said, “If you see anybody from that cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. You push back on them. Tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere!” But her comments pale in comparison to post-election statements made by far-Left entertainers like Madonna who said she felt like “Blowing up the Whitehouse,” and Kathy Griffin holding up a likeness of Trump’s bloody severed head. But it’s not the hyper-emotional outbursts of angry Progressives that has Conservatives and Classical Liberals concerned – it’s something much more sinister.
Republican Party of Florida Chairman and State Representative Blaise Ingoglia tells RNRF, “Today’s ‘progressive liberals’ are just socialists in disguise, except they aren’t disguising it anymore. They are running openly as self-described democratic socialists.”
Socialism is no longer a dirty word in America and you need look no further than former Presidential Candidate Bernie Sanders or newly-elected U.S. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a self-proclaimed Democrat Socialist.
Socialism is in many ways a lesser form of Communism. For example, Socialists believe in equal distribution of wealth, free healthcare, Internationalism, and tax funded socialized education. Communism is typically an oppressive political system where a central government control everything and capitalism is nonexistent. The former Soviet Union, Nazi Germany, North Korea, Cuba, and Venezuela are all examples of Communist/Socialist nations, where its people live in impoverished conditions and at the hands of ruthless dictators.
Rep. Ingoglia says, “Anyone who runs on the platform of government run healthcare for all and abolishing the agency that is charged with protecting our borders is not a classic liberal, they’re just dumb. The sad truth is today’s Democrat party has become the party of grievances, protests and confrontations. It’s a far cry from the Democrat Party of JFK who said, ‘a rising tide lifts all boats,’ which referred to tax cuts helping everyone.”
Rep. Ingoglia praised President Trump, stating, “I will say that the Trump administration is doing what he promised everyone he would do. It’s refreshing to see someone actually follow through on campaign promises. President Trump promised to put America first, and he’s doing just that. He is “Making America Great Again” by standing up for our country internationally, creating jobs and economic wealth, and appointing great conservative judges.”
An overwhelming number of RNRF viewers recently polled say Radical Progressive Liberals are to blame for near-Civil War conditions in America, and the same majority believe President Obama did more to divide the nation than to unite.
Only time will tell if Progressive Liberals will remain the face of the Democrat Party or if Classic values will return.
