miscasts the previous

Christopher Andrus’ letter “Division is coming from the progressive left” (Web page A16, Oct. 16 https://www.mercurynews.com/2022/10/14/letters-1015/) claims at this time’s political division is because of “rising radicalization and vitriol of the progressives.”

Andrus writes, this division began within the Nineties. That was when right-wing radio, Fox Information and Newt Gingrich’s “no compromise” politics took off.

Republicans have turn out to be so radicalized and mired in bigotry and concern they suppose Attila the Hun is a radical leftist.

Progressive concepts haven’t modified since FDR’s 1941 4 Freedoms(https://www.americanrhetoric.com/speeches/fdrthefourfreedoms.htm) speech which included financial alternative, employment, social safety, and ample well being care. Andrus says that “Conservatism is about conserving what has labored prior to now.” Sadly, that previous consists of bigotry and oppression. Conservatives are caught prior to now and haven’t any concepts for twenty first century issues. If it have been as much as historic conservatives, we might nonetheless be residing in caves.
