It is decisively clear that the Democratic Party has enfolded into the very leftist protocols esteemed by the likes of Eugene McCarthy and George McGovern. Although the deal points of contention are dissimilar, the political philosophy of progressivism and its ultimate goal remain steadfast. There is however one poignant exception to the progressivism of the past: The strategy and tactics of today’s progressives, insofar as implementing and injecting progressive ideals into American culture and government is stubbornly much broader in scope, refinement, and substance.
For example, as the Republicans have elected representative majorities in local, State, Congress, and the presidency, the liberal progressives employing the political wherewithal of progressive ideals and thought have dominated (throughout) the political philosophy of academia’s unions, teachers, administrators, and students.
Bolstered by a predominance of liberal predisposition amongst the governors of academia’s managing régimes procedural discretion is the justification for denying variant thought on campus. The prevailing leadership of Academia has surreptitiously redefined the spirit and meaningfulness of the 1st Amendment of the Constitution to service their political philosophy.
Interestingly, these intellectually endowed progressives are very flexible when it comes to Constitutional interpretation. But then, I must remember they are omniscient; therefore it follows that their sense of moral righteousness predominates. As a credit to their intellectual superiority, they are able to maneuver thru the twists and turns of their own contradictions and hypocrisies, achieve reelection, and passionately endorse socialistic answers to today’s problems. Neo-Marxist Saul Alinsky would be very proud of the ideals, formation of rationale, and especially the measurable influential advancement of today’s progressive movement upon America’s culture.
All was going so well for these progressives until November 8 of last year… and then came the unbelievable: A Donald Trump electoral win! Baffled, confused, and strenuously disorientated, the progressives abruptly lost their intuitive skills. They wandered about, mumbling and rubbing their bellies, hoping to comfort their inners. After multiple attempts at blaming this, that, and the others, the progressives have settled on “résistance” as their stratégie du jour.
As a conservative, I am very pleased. If their strategy was to direct their energy toward the betterment of the nation, not necessarily abandoning their Democratic Party values, but putting indifferences aside where it was possible, well, that could siphon off some voters in the next election… Thankfully, revenge is their motivation.
As an extra bonus (for the Republicans) toward the next election, the Democrats elected DNC’s chairman Tom Perez…
