Today, the "Progressives" threaten your life, if you don't consent to them taking our liberties and no one seems happy.

Of course they do.

But libertarians and anarchists are the only people who don't threaten peoples' liberty.

In truth, the policies they are peddling in order to make every equal, regardless of ability, intelligence, motivation, decent values, etc. (such as reparations, housing downpayments for blacks, health care for illegals, sanctuary cities, and wipe-out of student loan debt), would bring about economic collapse within a decade.

What we be a more apt label for them? I'll start.

1. EQUALIZERS
"How did we end up labeling ultra-leftists "progressives" in the first place?" They called themselves LIBERALS FIRST. When that became such a "bad word" with negative connotations, they changed it to progressive. Same people, different name.

We don't need a "catchy name" - Just call them what they are ..... RADICALS

WRONG!!!

"Liberal" used to mean people who believed in limited-to-no government. You might know them as libertarians. The correct term is "classical liberal."

The "progressive" movement was championed by Teddy Roosevelt, who was the leader of the Republican Party at the time. It ushered in an unprecedented era of big government, loss of civil liberties, and an imperialist foreign policy.

Contrary to corporate media and what is taught in government schools, Republicans are still progressives. They just go about it in a different way from Democrats.

One thing I want to say is that Progressives aren't liberals. Progressive like the SJW types have conservative tendencies based on morality to protect the collective rights of gays, illegal immigrants, blacks, native Americans and women. Liberals are supposed to protect the small man or the individual from the government.

The best term we can use to describe the so called left progressives would probably be best to use social justice activist.
