"History of American Progressivism" Glenn Beck Show 01-29-10


In the 1980's and 90's conservatives were very effective at turning the word 'liberal' into a pejorative….so much so that liberals stopped calling themselves liberals.

Liberals had to rebrand themselves so they reached back into their past and dusted off the 'progressive' moniker. Eager to adopt the new/old name liberals were overjoyed to shed the liberal image.

But who were the progressives? Teddy Roosevelt was a progressive. So was Woodrow Wilson. Margaret Sanger and George Bernard Shaw and journalist Walter Lippman were also progressives.

In the 2008 campaign Hillary Clinton referred to herself as an early 20th C. style progressive. John McCain said his hero was Teddy Roosevelt. McCain is a progressive. So is George Bush. Most of the Democratic majority in Congress is progressive. Some of the journalists and republican elite posing as conservatives,such as David brooks, David Frum, Peggy Noonan are progressives. Barack Obama is the Progressive-in-Chief.

Unfortunately many Democrats and some Republican have adopted the new progressive identity without knowing, understanding or caring what the original progressives stood for. Without giving away the store suffice to say that, given their support of eugenics, admiration for Mussolini, the early American progressives could very easily have morphed into full blown Nazis or Communists, had the political situation in Europe in the 1920's and the 30's and World War II not happened. After giving us the Federal Reserve, the income tax and Prohibition and the New Deal, the public began to reject them. They went underground and re-emerged as liberals for the next fifty years.

Now that liberalism is a dirty word we once again find ourselves in the middle of a progressive surge. But things are different this time around. The death grip of the liberal media has been broken. The distortion of the Constitution and U.S. history, for a hundred years controlled and written by progressive historians, is being unmasked. The NEA controlled education system developed by progressive John Dewey, is finally under attack.

Glenn Beck is in the middle of a series of programs exposing the cancer that is progressivism. Go to school every Friday night with Glenn Beck on Fox News or catch it here. We will be posting the shows as long as he keeps this series going. We will also be posting important books on the side of this page that go even deeper into the history of the Progressives.
