Progressivism is the support for or advocacy of social reform. As a philosophy, it is based on the idea of progress, which asserts that advancements in science, technology, economic development and social organization are vital to the improvement of the human condition.

Progressive stances have evolved over time. Imperialism was a controversial issue within progressivism in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, particularly in the United States where some progressives supported American imperialism while others opposed it.
In response to World War I, progressive President Woodrow Wilson's Fourteen Points established the concept of national self-determination and criticized imperialist competition and colonial injustices; these views were supported by anti-imperialists in areas of the world that were resisting imperial rule.

Question: what does Antifa have to do with progressivism?

Like how the clan and nazi have killed minorities for more than a century, thereby keeping all the good white conservative safe ?? Antifa are hooligans. But they are also a response to many decades of violence and threats from the extreme right.

That is bullshit. The Klan has killed 26 people since 1945. I have no numbers on American Nazis. Do you? I do not consider it an alarming number. Anti-Fa is the Left turning to violence because the politicians they back cannot get the votes they need. So violence and intimidation are used.

IMO, that is not an accurate description of the politics of American Progressives in 2019. I think therm "Progressive" here an now is just about synonymous with "Democratic Socialist."

Even the definition you cite here is not very helpful as Progressives are far from the only ones who believe "advancements in science, technology, economic development and social organization are vital to the improvement of the human condition." Where schools of political thought really tend to differ is not in their objectives, but in the desired means for achieving those objectives. Progressives lean heavily toward government solutions to problems; conservatives toward those that market-based.

Yeah, I know you redefine everything to suit your tortured bias.

According to YOUR link the cluckers have kill nearly 5000 people since the end of the civil war. That’s JUST the lynchings. That doesn’t cover those murdered by other means. Probably just as many if not more.

Tell us again how antifa who have killed NO-ONE are the fucking same ????
