The difference between Liberals and Progressives: Pat Condell- Cultural Marxism

By Jim Campbell

Most consider them the same but they are completely different.

One thing worth mentioning, the country would be far better out with them and their delusions.

Both groups are for larger ever bloated slothful federal governments.

This would also include the avowed socialist, Bernie Sanders who believes education should be free but no one has explained to him that things aren’t free, they represent redistribution of wealth, a concept that both liberals and Progressives adore.

 

 

Trying to differentiate between the two groups  before the great input from Mr. Condell is no different from trying to decide which end of a dog turd is the cleanest to pick up.

Conservatives want the government to leave them alone.

As a rule they are for strict interpretation of the United States Constitution and  are pro-Second Amendment.

They are for a smaller less intrusive government, lower taxes, and a strong military, that’s simple enough isn’t it?

 

 

Pundits use the words liberal and progressive interchangeably.

Those two words are not synonyms.

They do not mean the same thing.

And people should stop using them as stand-ins for one another.

Both groups favor gun control when as politicians it’s in their best interest.

As individuals they don’t understand guns or gun control but believe they should be banned as the recent talking head on CNN or MSLSD told them they should be.

Liberal and Progressive do NOT Describe the Same Things.

The word liberal usually describes two lines of thinking in modern US Politics.

People often times describe themselves as “social liberals”. Sometimes they’ll say, “I’m socially liberal but fiscally conservative.”

Social Liberals believe in balancing liberty with social justice.

They tend to support gay marriage, legalizing marijuana, protecting the environment and improving equality.

They allow certain liberties to be sacrificed (like not allowing landlords to refuse someone based on their race).

 

 

Alternatively, Liberal can also be used (usually negatively) to describe someone who believes that the government can and should use tax dollars to play an active role in improving communities and promoting the general welfare of the country.

In short, the government should collect taxes and spend it to improve communities.

Neither description accurately describes what it means to be a Progressive.

What Makes Progressive Different From Liberal

Progressives recognize problems and try to define and address the systemic rules, laws and traditions that enable and empower the problems in the first place.

Additionally, Progressives share a general belief in the interconnections of individuals and the philosophy that “when you hurt, I hurt”.

“Examples of Differences Between Liberal and Progressive Views”

Liberals will pay for body cameras on Police.

Progressives may like that idea, but they also want to address the  training the cops receive that necessitate the need for the cameras.

Liberals will vote for a stimulus package.

Progressives might too, but they’ll also plead for an investigation into why it’s needed, how it will be spent, and if the system will allow for the same problem to happen again.

Liberals will raise millions to beat Republicans despite Republicans having more big donors.

Progressives think large donations fundamentally corrupts politics.

Liberals will promote after school programs for inner city youth.

Progressives might too, but will also  address the minimum wage, lack of jobs, historical housing discrimination and the over-arresting of black youth across the country.

Liberals will raise taxes to pay for our social programs.

Progressives will increase tax revenue by closing the tax loopholes that allow corporations to pay little to no income tax. (Source)

Liberals might watch MSNBC or CNN.

Progressives generally agree that the mainstream media is a part of the problem.

 

“The Most Important Issue is Money in Politics”

The most important issue in most Progressives circles is money in politics, though the climate crisis, social justice and income inequality are pervasive as well.

Because money in politics is so influential on our candidates and elected officials, Progressives collectively recognize that our broken campaign finance system affects all issues.

Literally, almost no issue goes unaffected by money in politics.

Private prisons, gun control, education funding, the climate crisis, the military industrial complex, the over-prescription of pain killers, etc.

Very few issues escape the grasp of our oligarchic campaign finance system.

About JCscuba

I am firmly devoted to bringing you the truth and the stories that the mainstream media ignores. Together we can restore our constitutional republic to what the founding fathers envisioned and fight back against the progressive movement. Obama nearly destroyed our country economically, militarily coupled with his racism he set us further on the march to becoming a Socialist State. Now it's up to President Trump to restore America to prominence. Republicans who refuse to go along with most of his agenda RINOs must be forced to walk the plank, they are RINOs and little else.

  1. Malarkey! Progressive & Liberalism are false fronts for Socialism which is a false front for Communism. Marxism, like Islam, is not a matter of degree, it is a matter of how much they can impose & enforce immediately..
