Progressives are anything but
The “progressive” movement, was so looked down upon, that the term “liberal” began to be used instead.
Woodrow Wilson was indeed a “progressive” and morally corrupt. He re-segregated the military, screened the racist screed “Birth of a Nation” in the White House, opposed Women’s Suffrage, believed the Constitution of the United states to be unwieldy and corrupt and thought that all nations should be under one “international law”. Is it really that far from what radical Muslims actually believe?
Yes, progressives like their big government.
Another “progressive” icon, Margaret Sanger was a proponent of Eugenics. She wrote that coercion should be used to prevent the “undeniably feeble minded” from procreating. Demonstrating another progressive thought... “we are better than you.”
