Lanterns: The Liberal Progressive Paradox


The Liberal Progressive Paradox

A common theme during the Obama campaigns and his presidency has been change. In many cases it has not been just simple changes in governmental policy but rather fundamental cultural change. Obama even said prior to his 2008 election that “we are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America”. It has been highlighted by many pundits since Obama’s election that you do not fundamentally change something that you love.

To many this may seem innocuous. Obama even mentioned in an interview with Bill O’Reilly that it was taken out of context as he denied the need to fundamentally transform the country. While many point to this interview as evidence of Obama’s good will to maintain the fundamentals of the United States - namely the United States Constitution – Obama’s actions and the actions of his administration prove otherwise.

Obama, like other true Liberal Progressives, adhere to an evolutionary philosophy that embraces the relativity of truth and the destruction of the current cultural hegemony. In other words, Obama believes that truth is relative and there are no absolutes. This provides the boundless and unconfined ideological frame work needed to justify any behavior that produces the Progressive desired outcome. The framework is destruction of Western cultural norms or a Judeo-Christian Hegemony aimed at protecting individual sovereignty in order to erect a new set cultural norms aimed at shifting the individual sovereignty to the state.

One of the primary weapons of this Progressive evolutionary effort is the embrace of political correctness. As the erecting of the new norms that deviate from the current set of cultural norms there are many dissenters that reject it. The dissenters of the Liberal Progressive effort attempt to logically explain the virtues of Western Culture and how the efforts to deviate from it have been an absolute failure. While Liberal Progressives ignore the past failures by those that have attempted to create a utopian state and are incapable of logically supporting the successful path to this utopia, they work to shut down any logical attempt to dismantle their ill-conceived plan by accusing the dissenter of resurrecting sexist, racist, homophobic, xenophobic, stereotypes.

Recently Obama explained in a commencement speech at Rutgers University. He said,

And just as America is better, the world is better than when I graduated. Since I graduated, an Iron Curtain fell, apartheid ended. There’s more democracy. We virtually eliminated certain diseases like polio. We’ve cut extreme poverty drastically. We've cut infant mortality by an enormous amount. Now, I say all these things not to make you complacent. We’ve got a bunch of big problems to solve. But I say it to point out that change has been a constant in our history. And the reason America is better is because we didn’t look backwards we didn’t fear the future. We seized the future and made it our own. And that’s exactly why it’s always been young people like you that have brought about big change—because you don't fear the future.

That leads me to my second point: The world is more interconnected than ever before, and it’s becoming more connected every day. Building walls won’t change that.

Obama’s mentioning of tearing down walls extends beyond the criticism of Donald Trump’s main policy position of building a wall at our southern border otherwise he would have not mentioned “walls” as a plurality. Obama’s mentioning of “walls” expands into ideological and cultural walls or seasoned moral norms. This same call for progressively removing cultural barriers or walls was echoed in Loretta Lynch’s address threatening the North Carolina’s “bathroom law” HB2.

This is not the first time that we have seen discriminatory responses to historic moments of progress for our nation. We saw it in the Jim Crow laws that followed the Emancipation Proclamation. We saw it in fierce and widespread resistance to Brown v. Board of Education. And we saw it in the proliferation of state bans on same-sex unions intended to stifle any hope that gay and lesbian Americans might one day be afforded the right to marry. That right, of course, is now recognized as a guarantee embedded in our Constitution, and in the wake of that historic triumph, we have seen bill after bill in state after state taking aim at the LGBT community. Some of these responses reflect a recognizably human fear of the unknown, and a discomfort with the uncertainty of change. But this is not a time to act out of fear. This is a time to summon our national virtues of inclusivity, diversity, compassion and open-mindedness. What we must not do – what we must never do – is turn on our neighbors, our family members, our fellow Americans, for something they cannot control, and deny what makes them human. This is why none of us can stand by when a state enters the business of legislating identity and insists that a person pretend to be something they are not, or invents a problem that doesn’t exist as a pretext for discrimination and harassment.

This is the typical response that Progressives have used to try and map out civil rights achievements of the past in an attempt to attach current Progressive cultural evolutionary agendas as the trajectory of the future. To fabricate some type of parallel between the struggles of segregation based on physical appearance to that of human behavior and alternative lifestyles is not only illogical, it is irresponsible and insulting to those that suffered under segregation. It is also insulting to the historically educated Americans that are aware or even remember that Progressives were the champions of segregation and eugenics aimed to destroy American blacks. It wasn’t until Progressives realized that they could use American blacks to progress their Marxist agenda that they embraced American blacks. Now they aim to do the same with homosexuals, those that identify as transgendered. Women, Latinos, immigrants, or whichever segregated class they can conjure up.

Liberal Progressives have evolved along with the attempt to further fundamentally transform the nation with one final push before Obama leaves office. The attempt is encapsulated in the politically correct efforts of the transgender rights polices being forced upon states through blackmail by the Loretta Lynch and the Executive Branch. A full throated threat has been issued by Obama and his myriad of executive subsidiaries to schools all around the nation that do not aim to remove the walls or barriers between male and female privacy.

The attempt by Progressives extends beyond those that are confused about their gender identity often called someone who is transgendered. Some reports show that the number of people who do not identify with the gender assignment at birth is around 700,000 Americans or 0.3 of the population. In the illusionary effort to protect the feelings of 0.3 percent of the population, Progressives will pursue the removal of all barriers between men and women.

While this may seem a bit hyperbolic, this is the true trajectory of these Progressive efforts. Progressives have always claimed that they were the champions of equality and social justice. This includes all of the disparities between men and women. Do not think that this stops at the physiological evidence that the differences between women and men present within nature. After all of these differences can be managed, ignored, and even changed to achieve the utopian ends of a physical and sexual androgynous culture. Remember we own our future even if it includes rejecting our physical, sexual, biological, and even spiritual nature.

What is interesting is the existence of all the paradoxes that exist in the Liberal Progressive agenda and the trajectory of their efforts. I call it the Liberal Progressive Paradox. First, Liberal Progressives claim to embrace the virtues of nature but reject it at every turn. Male and female is the most significant dichotomy that exists in the entirety of nature and the Progressive left will not stop until all of the attributes assigned by nature to these two categories have been stripped down to insignificance for the sake of social equality. Secondly, they reject any form of barrier or wall between members of society while at the same time attempting to eliminate them. This attempt requires the fabrication of walls within our social strata between any observable physical differences of the members of society so that social justice can be administered by the social science vanguard elite in government. Thirdly, the process of eliminating these barriers by creating new barriers perpetuates a schizophrenic dialectic cycle that we embroil society in perpetual class conflict for the sake of human evolution.

Liberal Progressives are enslaved by their ideology. They are constantly trying to deflect the unintended consequences of their policies by doubling down on what created in the first place. They have embarked on an ideological jihad against Judeo-Christian values because these values are in conflict with their world view. That Jihad requires the repudiation of Christianity and Judaism alike as these religions are what Western Culture was formulated on. Instead Liberal Progressives wish to replace the foundation of Judeo-Christian culture with a new failed foundation of Secular Humanist culture. Secular Humanist principles, otherwise known as Secular Socialist principles, embody the radical egalitarian struggle perpetuated by denying nature and what or who has created it.

Barak Obama even struggles with disguising his anti-western world view as he tries to invoke the founders of our nation that rejected the European Idealistic views that Obama has religiously embraced. In his Rutgers commencement speech he said,

Look, our nation’s Founders—Franklin, Madison, Hamilton, Jefferson—they were born of the Enlightenment. They sought to escape superstition, and sectarianism, and tribalism, and no-nothingness. They believed in rational thought and experimentation, and the capacity of informed citizens to master our own fates. That is embedded in our constitutional design.

While this is a pretty accurate statement, Obama’s ideology is built on the foundation of nihilism (nothingness) and class warfare (tribalism and sectarianism). There we witness the Liberal Progressive Paradox once again. Obama and his Liberal Progressive counterparts are the ideological progeny of Darwin, Hegel, Kant, Nietzsche, Marx and Engels all of which recognize the need for conflict to nihilistically destroy old norms in order to evolve and “progress”. Their efforts call for the conformity of the masses to eliminate conformity. They call for emphasizing and galvanizing of stereotypes in order to eliminate stereotypes. It is maddening. All of this social schizophrenia result in the destruction of civil society.

Recall the ideological points of the Feminist movement. The movement that began in the 1960’s was intended to empower women so they can stand alongside of men or even above men. The attempt was to eliminate the stereotypes applied to women by nature because those stereotypes, regardless of their physiological relevance, were oppressive. In the attempt to liberate women from the bonds of the male dominated culture of oppression, they have effectively fundamentally transformed womanhood out of existence.

This is no better witnessed by the Liberal Progressive embrace of Bruce Jenner now known as the transgendered Katlyn Jenner. The female species, if I should invoke the saint of evolution, has so been diminished that even a man can claim to be one; the same stereotypical type of man that oppressed them in the first place. What better champion to carry the torch of this flaming degradation of the female being than a former very masculine male Olympian. At the hands of Liberal Progressivism and as a result of the schizophrenic ideological paradox, Liberal Progressives have officially made women insignificant to society, a sexual tool of humanity, and a being physiologically less than men. After all, men only have to cut off their penis to become one.

So the next step in this evolution is questionable as the trajectory is clear. What barriers remain between members of our society? The only barriers that remain are those between adults and children. Liberal Progressives have championed massive spending to benefit our children within the realm of education. They have championed massive spending within the welfare system to prevent them from starving. They have championed sexually educating our children as a type of passion to prevent them from making the mistakes witnessed by the curse, scourge, and consequence of sexual intercourse. These Liberal Progressive efforts are not void of the same paradox. The innocence of children can be protected by simply removing the essence of “child” and innocence from the equation. Children are no different than men or women. There is only an oppressive cultural barrier and that barrier must be torn down. So how can the innocence of children be stolen if innocence doesn’t exist to begin with. Innocence is a barrier and Liberal Progressives will seek to remove it.
