Clinton, Sanders and Progressive Racism

Presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernie Sanders seek to claim the “progressive” mantle. Both claim the other is not a true progressive. Clinton teased Sanders as being the “self-proclaimed gatekeeper for progressivism.” Bernie Sanders said that Hillary Clinton can’t be both a moderate and a progressive and that most progressives don’t take millions from Wall Street. But let’s talk about the origins of progressivism. It’s only historical ignorance that could explain black affinity for progressivism.

  • This is very much in line with what we studied in Anthropology concerning early Darwinism and racism. Although the study was quite brief — anthros don’t like to admit that they believe that first there was the monkey, then the Black man, then the Red man, then the Yellow man, then the “highest” intelligence the White man.

    Personally, I reject 19th Century Darwinism completely — it was rendered practically obsolete by the 20 Century science of evolutionary genetics. I especially reject the monkey to humans hypothesis. I’m willing to accept “micro-evolution” — evolution within a species — but not species to species evolution, which cannot be objectively reproduced under controlled conditions. Even David Suzuki’s “fruit fly” lab experiments were only on the micro-evolutionary level, with a minuscule change that could at best be described as scarcely a sub-species. In other words, Suzuki’s fruit flies didn’t evolve into eagles!

    And of course we see Social Darwinism alive and well today everywhere (the most racist application of the theory). When we start saying that chopping off your dick and pretending you’re a woman is “natural”, or that homosexuals are a “race”, then it’s pretty clear that natural science has clearly gone off the rails.
