Now that global warming is being exposed as a gross manipulation of junk science, it is important to remember that this is not the first time in our nation’s history that the Progressive community has used junk science in order to force their social agenda on an unsuspecting population.
Back in the early 1900’s, up through World War Two, the progressive movements of America and Europe committed large scale genocide with their progressive Eugenic “science”. In fact the term genocide was coined to describe what the Progressive Eugenic movement did in this country and in Germany.
Not many people understand the crime these American Progressives committed, because public educators and other liberal professors just can’t wrap their rigid minds around the concept that the origins of their current religion are soaked in the blood of their own dark history.
The whole ugly truth about how American Progressives directly inspired Adolf Hitler and his Reich, is contained in a masterpiece of writing by Edwin Black, War Against The Weak.
From the book’s website:
Ultimately, 60,000 Americans were coercively sterilized — legally and extra-legally. Many never discovered the truth until decades later. Those who actively supported eugenics include America’s most progressive figures: Woodrow Wilson, Margaret Sanger and Oliver Wendell Holmes.
American eugenic crusades proliferated into a worldwide campaign, and in the 1920s came to the attention of Adolf Hitler. Under the Nazis, American eugenic principles were applied without restraint, careening out of control into the Reich’s infamous genocide. During the pre-War years, American eugenicists openly supported Germany’s program. The Rockefeller Foundation financed the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute and the work of its central racial scientists. Once WWII began, Nazi eugenics turned from mass sterilization and euthanasia to genocidal murder. One of the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute doctors in the program financed by the Rockefeller Foundation was Josef Mengele who continued his research in Auschwitz, making daily eugenic reports on twins. After the world recoiled from Nazi atrocities, the American eugenics movement — its institutions and leading scientists — renamed and regrouped under the banner of an enlightened science called human genetics.
To see just how involved the American Progressive movement was in the global effort to murder the “inferior” in the name of their junk science of Eugenics, we dare you to click through to this Google Books page for Black’s book, War Against The Weak. The link highlights the word Progressive everywhere it appears in the text.
And before the folks at Media Matters try to destroy the source of the detailed research which reveals how America’s Progressive movement collaborated with the Nazis to commit genocide, we would simply like to wish you good luck with that.
In 2005, Black won the World Affairs Council’s award for the Best World Affairs Book for Banking on Baghdad, and the Doña Gracia Medal for Best Book of The Year. In 2004, he won the coveted Rockower First Prize Award for Investigative Journalism from the American Jewish Press Association for “Funding Hate,” his acclaimed, syndicated investigation of the Ford Foundation’s systematic funding of hate groups. In 2003, he received the top two editorial awards from the American Society of Journalists and Authors: Best Book of the Year for IBM and the Holocaust and Best Article of the Year for “IBM in Auschwitz” in the Village Voice. Also in 2003, Black received the International Human Rights Award from the World Affairs Council for War Against the Weak.
We would also like to direct Neo-Progressives doubters, who still don’t want to believe the truth about their movement’s blood stained history, to listen to this interview Tavis Smiley conducted with Mr. Black on NPR.
Edwin Black is unimpeachable! His reputation as a consummate researcher is undisputed by every liberal rag in the land. He doesn’t care about the politics of his discoveries. He only cares about finding the truth.
The Progressive movement in this country is so fond of highlighting the darkest elements of the history of these United States, but for some reason, they always leave out the significant role the Progressive movement had in all of those ugly chapters.
That’s probably because if people were educated as to the history of Eugenics, they might make the connection that the anti-miscegenation inspired Ku Klux Klan was a direct product of American Progressives, who loathed the idea of interracial breeding. Golly that would be embarrassing!
People might also come to the conclusion that the National Socialist movement in Europe was a Progressive movement. None of this makes for very good PR.
None of this is to say that Neo-Progressives are Nazis. They are not. Obama is not Hitler and we have said as much on Founding Bloggers. But when the government proposes a federal mandate requiring everyone to buy a product or service, or face jail time, that sure does feel like some flavor of social fascism.
Either way, the Neo-Progressives should at least be held to their own standard, and have their racist history hung around their necks like a scarlet letter.
The Progressive movement owns the Klan.
The Progressive Movement owns Nazi Eugenics.
The Neo-Progressive Movement owns Global Warming.
As a side note, how ironic is it that so many Jews and Blacks lead today’s Progressive movement, when the same ideology murdered millions of them throughout the previous century? I would think Progressive is the last thing a Jew or Black person would want to identify with. Despite the abysmal track record of the movement, they are embracing the newest flavor of scientific fraud, global warming, perpetrated in a recycled effort to socially engineer society according to today’s Progressive standards.
The more things change, the more they stay the same.
