Think Progress was created by Clinton Insider John Podesta. It sold itself as an independent outlet but primarily existed to protect the Clinton’s and ruling class Democrats and their policies. But no more. It shuts down today.
The outlet, which served as an editorially independent project of the Democratic Party think tank Center for American Progress, will stop current operations on Friday and be converted into a site where CAP scholars can post.
CAP created Think Progress, Media Matters, and with David Brock and money from George Soros, a web of well-funded inter-connected digital and on the ground activist groups to advance the Democrat Socialist agenda. But Think Progress was never editorially independent but it has been a loud voice on the left for years.
Think Progress is an Internet blog that “pushes back, daily,” by its own account, against its conservative targets, and supports the APAF agenda: to transform “progressive ideas into policy through rapid response communications, legislative action, grassroots organizing and advocacy, and partnerships with other progressive leaders throughout the country and the world.” Think Progress promotes an agenda identical to that of the left wing of the Democratic Party.
The Center for American Progress will continue to use the webspace for more so-called think-tank-like scholarly work. How to convince blacks that Democrats are not trapping them on urban plantations. Killing babies in the womb is like removing an appendix. Biology is a social construct. How being wrong about climate change for 30 years proves you are more right than ever. And don’t forget, “we can make socialism work this time,” trust us with your rights and your money!
Crap like that.
It’s a clearinghouse for legalized theft and justifiable homicide.
And while Think Progress is gone, effective today, the Center for American Progress will continue. Well, at least as long as liberals have money they’d rather spend to convince the government to make you pay for their agenda instead of just donating directly to causes about which they claim you should care.
