Progress isn't removing anything that offends a group, such as Confederate flags or statues. Progress is when their presence, or the presence of a statue or flag of an otherwise opposing group (such as Martin Luther King) no longer trigger violence. Until then, no progress has been made, people are only pretending their hatred disappeared by erasing their past or covering it up, pretending that it doesn't exist along with any and all negative feelings (rather than expressing them fully).
Never trust someone that pretends they have no negative feelings, or that erasing all external signs of them is progress, since these are the biggest cynics you will ever meet. Not everybody has to pretend to be an optimist all the time about everything, since there is reason not to be sometimes.

The Progressives, also called cuckolds, soy boys or groomers, are a wild species discovered in Germany in the 1840s. The species is currently most prevalent in the United States, Canada and parts of Asia, having major packs known as China, North Korea and Cuba. Progressives are somewhat related to the human species.


The first Progressives were discovered in Germany in 1848, and were known as Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels. In the early 1900s, Progressives spread across northern Asia and Eastern Europe, in a pack called the Soviet Union. This was one of the biggest Progressive packs recorded to date. The pack took over many Eastern European and Central Asian nations.


Progressives behave quiet oddly, as they attempt to blend in with humans, get easily offended and love to complain, even in positions of power. The species hold belief that females should dominate the world and that all males should be killed. This has been linked to the species’ love for extremism and ideological colonisation.
While not fully dangerous to adults or teenagers, Progressives may cause mental harm to children. A Progressive will attack it’s prey from a young age, feeding it misinformation about the human body and sex, until it’s prey is old enough to be fully consumed into the Progressive species.
Human: Ayo, what the fuck are you wearing? 🤭
Progressive: Umm, I’m expressing myself! 😠
Human: If that’s expressing yourself , then please stop. Look in a mirror. 🤣
Progressive: I don’t care what you think! Besides, why are you so upset over what I’m wearing?! 😡
Human: Damn Progressives 🤣

Later that day…

Progressive: Did -they- really mean that? Why does everyone hate me? 😭

A political platform defined usually by, but not limited to, the developmental advancement of American society through pragmatic and practical means. Contrary to right wing beliefs, Progressives are not the second coming of communism and the russians, instead they seek to improve the lifestyles of the vast majority of Americans by providing tax funded benefits that would help the country grow as a whole.
