The Lefties are at it again. Having completely destroyed that fine word, "liberal," along with the enlightened 18th century sensibilities that went with it, they have now moved on like locusts through the lexicon, and want to be called "progressives." An astonishing number of conservative commentators are going along with it.
It is always easy to point out the flaws in liberal ideology so big you could drive a truck through them. But recent events keenly expose the utter absurdity of referring to liberals as "progressives." The policies they advance, the behavior they display in support of them, and their inevitable consequences are taking this country backward, not forward, as these same policies have every time they have reared their ugly heads throughout human history. If liberals want a new moniker, they should be called regressives.
