Do Progressives have nothing more than "Racism" claims ?


Will the Progressives ever figure out that the "Racist Claims" just don't work anymore ?

Name-calling is the last refuge of the scoundrel. The left can't sell their ideals, so they hurl ad hominem attacks and insults against those who disagree with them.

The definition of progressives and conservative is in itself a very bad idea.. a person need not necessarily have a blanket view on all issues as progressive or conservative. The ideas of the self proclaimed progressives might evolve reactions from one quarter that its in line with ideas social justice equality before law while in some quarters might be seen as socialist communist ideas being propagated with various baiting techniques being employed. This is infact mainly because politics and media debate has become way too partisan and polarised.. the ability of people in politics and media debate who spearhead forming public opinion and sentiments cannot swallow their ego and pride and come to a consensus as to how decisions can be made for greater good of the people.

We must only remember the fact that abolition of slavery and universal suffrage were not mere victories of disenfranchised people. It was the coming together of all sections of society to level the playing field. It was empathy and demand for the dignity and respect which brought society together. Few 100 years back one might call lincoln or washington a progressive for enshrining rights and equality of all men and bringing people into the axis of democracy.

But it was 100s of years back. Which is precisely why time is the key to seeing through those ideas bring better a society. It is not just merely hiding behind baiting people with stereotypes and calling oneself a progressive that will.better society but through the will of persuasion,humility ,debate and compromise and consensus that we can make a prosperous society

Progressives are not bound by any moral sense of honesty or integrity.

Their moral values drift with the times. They will lie and deceive to get what they want because dishonesty is their only hope. Their failed policies have proven not to work, so their only recourse is to slander their opponents.

Their moral values drift with the times, on point! They only say what people want to hear and not hold on to their promises. Their policies have proved useless but some people still seek hope from them lol

It is hilarious that you come up with a strawman argument with 3 different things progressives can do, then ask if progressives only have 1 thing they can do. So dumb.

Only a fucking idiot would think a conservative agreeing that progressives have no argument is hilarious. Could you be any dumber?

There are two types of progressives, the cleaver ones who are slowly inching us toward Socialism/Communism.

And of course the stupid ones who created our thriving welfare state and don't know why it has failed.

Which are you 😜

Why has this comment been disputed? Oh, wait...it must be because only progressives possess the right to freedom of speech. After all, there is nothing disrespectful, rude or hateful about this comment. It is not only indisputable - it is irrefutable!

So, it is an ad hominem about the opposite incurring in ad hominem, nice one! My political position feel more validated now, being represented by this women with such a strange expression in such a masterfully executed demotivational poster meme sure is great. Are you sure Bush doesn't have a hand in this?

Also, you are all racists! Bye.

Thank you for your kind words. In reply, I will simply say that...were I not baffled by your baloney, I'd be blown-away by your brilliance. I'll be your huckleberry; yes, it is another right-wing conspiracy. George and possibly even Vladimir have a hand in this. I will notify Julian.

If they do have anything more, they're not claiming it. A factor contributing to the declining health of our society is the false consensus that only minorities and special-interest groups can be victims of racism, and that only majorities and non special-interest groups can be racists. Since the Progressives have no steadfast platform or anything beneficial to offer society, they have chosen to pander to those who lean on the crutch that is the adulterated use of the word "racist" and the adulterated idea of "racism". This, of course, plays-out as "votes" by those in that growing constituency who do not know any better and who, by the way, most often are the ones exhibiting true racism.
