Today’s Progressives just like David Horowitz’s communist parents

An interesting observation on the phenomenon of Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton trying to outdo each other in their attempt to be more Left than each other.

In a rousing speech at the University of Minnesota last month, David Horowitz, founder and chairman of the David Horowitz Freedom Center, told students, “I don’t see anything different in the agendas of the people who call themselves progressives today and the Communists I grew up with in the Stalin era. They were for income redistribution and the coddling of criminals; their sympathies were with America’s enemies – and have remained so ever since. They were for totalitarian solutions to ‘make the world a better place.’ How is this different from today’s progressives except that they don’t have the power yet to impose their utopia by force? The so-called liberal professors at this university, as at the other 400 or more I have visited, have purged their faculties of conservatives who are now rarer than unicorns. No true believer in democracy could make a peace with this.”
