Not surprised modern liberals have come to work inside the system seek modest and insufficient reforms; and even support war while many progressives seek radical transformational change and challenge the system. O'Reilly and many liberals are part of the system while progressives see it as corrupt, dysfunctional and non-responsive.
Sad to hear that Bill O'Reilly rejects such good progressive Republicans as Abraham Lincoln and Teddy Roosevelt...
After doing this little project, I finally got around to interviewing Bruce Levine on my radio show: Learned Helplessness in America; Bruce E. Levine Author of Get Up Stand Up; Uniting populists, energizing the defeated and battling the corporate elite
He writes and talks about how many Americans have been victims of learned helplessness. I think the liberals O'Reilly approves of are among these. They are cowed and beaten down and have lost hope that they can do much of anything. Good liberals. Well behaved liberals, not the same as progressives liberals.
Are you a liberal and think I'm wrong? Prove me wrong. DO something! Get active.
Are you a progressive? Aren't you proud Bill O'Reilly despises you?
