BRONX TIMES REPORTER, MARCH 2 BTR 9-APRIL 4, 2019 67
The success Progressives have enjoyed
on several fronts may be their
undoing. 2019 may, despite of or even
because of those successes, prove to be
the start of the reversal of the left-wing
The Left has dominated the media’s
coverage of America’s economic picture.
However, despite dire predictions
of economic disaster following President
Trump’s election in 2016, the U.S.
economy has surged ahead, freed of
the high taxes, excess regulations, and
timid trade policies of the Obama Administration.
Stocks posted their best
January in thirty years. The Bureau
of Labor Statistics issued an excellent
January jobs report, indicating that
jobs, particularly those in the manufacturing
sector, have rebounded. Additionally,
thanks to a rejection of restrictions,
The U.S. has become a net
exporter of energy, further shoring up
the fi nancial picture.
The Democrat’s overwhelming obsession
with abortion without limits is
garnering increased opposition. New
York State adopted a measure which essentially
justifi es infanticide, allowing
the destruction of a fully formed, completely
viable baby up to the moment of
birth. Even while celebrating the victory,
many observers realized that the
extreme nature of the new law would
strengthen opposition to the abortion
without limits cause. Virginia attempted
to pass a similar piece of legislation,
but failed to do so.
In New Jersey, the LGBTQ movement,
a bastion of the Progressive movement,
has similarly overreached. ABC
reports that “New Jersey has become
the second state in the nation after California
to pass a law requiring schools
to teach LGBT history in their classrooms.
Under the new measure, public
schools must include lessons about the
political, economic and social contributions
of the LGBT community.” De-emphasizing
the teaching of U.S. history
which the educational establishment
has done, while increasing concentration
on this topic may result in substantial
Two openly anti-Israel Progressives,
Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar,
took their place in Congress this year.
Combined with other Democrats( such
as Keith Ellison who has served as vicechair
of the Democratic National Committee)
they have essentially mainstreamed
the left’s anti-Semitism. A
crucial constituency of the Democrat
Party, Jewish voters may well become
increasingly alienated. Catholics, too
are becoming a target of key Democrats.
Senators Kamala Harris (D-CA) Diane
Feinstein (D-CA) and Mazie Hirono (DHI)
have essentially questioned the fi tness
of practicing Catholics to serve on
It has long been a Democrat Party
mantra that claims of voter fraud have
been untrue, levied essentially as a
means to suppress leftist voting blocks,
a position the media generally favors.
But on January 25, Texas Attorney General
Ken Paxton reported that “…about
95,000 individuals identifi ed by the Department
of Public Safety as non-U.S.
citizens have a matching voter registration
record in Texas, and roughly 58,000
of them have voted in one or more Texas
elections…” Judicial Watch reports that
“The integrity of our elections is under
systematic assault by leftist activists
and politicians whose objective is
clearly to manipulate the elections for
their own gain… And as Judicial Watch
uncovers more and more evidence of
the breadth and scale of this effort, it
is becoming clear that the objective of
what we are seeing is to get leftist candidates
The left’s advocacy of open borders,
its’ attempts to downplay the “caravans”
and its staunch opposition to border
safeguards is beginning to wear
thin in the face of facts. A dramatic
combination of crime, cost, health, and
population data may begin to convince
the U.S. population that illegal immigration
is presenting a dangerous and
unaffordable challenge to the nation.
As socialism becomes more dominant
in the Democratic Party and a
key part of the Progressive identity, the
manifest failures and dangers of that
political philosophy become more evident.
Despite the clear disasters caused
by the implementation of socialism
throughout the world, American socialists
continue to push the idea. The latest
example of how socialism ruins a nation,
Venezuela, may fi nally awake the
public to how bad an idea it really is.
