Obama and Progressivism

Posted by Jack Stephens on March 3, 2008

Margaret Kimberley, an editor for Black Agenda Report, writes:

The rush to tag along with Barack Obama’s presidential juggernaut shows beyond doubt that progressive “movement” politics is “on its death bed” in the United States, on both sides of the racial divide.

It doesn’t seem to matter that as a United States Senator his votes on Iraq are the same as Hillary Clinton’s. It doesn’t matter that he once opposed establishing a deadline for withdrawal. It doesn’t matter that he parrots the words of Republicans when he speaks of “the excesses of the 60s and 70s.” None of what he says matters, because speaking up would mean fighting back, and there is no movement left to do that.
