I disagree with this guy who will go nameless only, because he doesn’t seem to have a name. Even though his basic point is solid. But Neo-Progressive, I believe in an insult to actual Progressives. True progressivism is about progress and moving forward. Not making someone else’s life worst, so someone else can live better. And when you try to shut someone else up so someone else is not offended, you might be improving the life of someone, which is debatable. Especially when they don’t have to hear negative facts about them and don’t have that opportunity and self-improve. But you’re definitely regressing, because you now just infringed on someone else’s Freedom of Speech rights. There’s certainly nothing liberal about political correctness and I would argue progressive as well. Because it is a form of fascism which is regressive and hurts people simply for expressing themselves.
I prefer the term New Marxists to describe the New-Left in America. Karl Marx, is not older than dirt, he’s actually older than the modern American Republic, but Marxism as an ideology is fairly new in America, as far as having base that supports it. If you think Donald Trump is a big narcissist, well you’re right, because he certainly is. But he’s almost minor league compared with a Marxist who believes in their ideology so much that anyone who disagrees with them on anything must not only be wrong, but probably immoral as well and don’t have a right to be heard. Fascism on the Left, is Marxism. If you think Marxist is insulting on the Left, don’t try to shut people up for simply disagreeing with you, or contradicting you. When someone says something negative about anyone and its true, they’re not hating. They’re simply pointing out negative truths about whoever they’re talking about.
We now have a millennial generation of college students who are not only drowning in debt. but not getting much out of the education they can’t afford, but who believe that people who say negative things about any minority group in the country even if they’re correct, are bigots. But at least they have the latest smart phone and i-pad. So everything is awesome in their world. And this is actually a real problem in America. Because we have a generation of this country who believe Freedom of Speech should either not exist, or doesn’t exist. Because they either failed social studies in high school and got promoted to the next grade anyway, because their teacher didn’t want to hurt their self-esteem. Or they were too busy texting the student who was sitting right next to them to learn about social studies and the U.S. Constitution and everything that is actually important. And this will be real problem if they ever come to power in America.
