Dedicated to the Restoration of Progressive Democracy

Backpfeifengesicht, that wonderful German word that, in English, means "a face in need of a fist." Today it's a perfect description of the Giant Orange Serial Sexual Predator and Republican presidential nominee, Donald Trump.
I'd like to punch De Niro in the face. This guy doesn't think Trump has the character to be president? But Hillary does?
Hillary called Black youth "super predators" with "no conscience; no empathy." Said they must be "brought to heel" like dogs: i.e., she was calling for a police crackdown on inner-cities.
This kicked off the "era of mass incarceration", produced a militant police force filled with racist thugs and cowards and eventually created the Black Lives Matter movement. All for kickbacks from the private prison industry.
And this is just one thing. The Clintons have taken bribes to deregulate Wall Street which produced the 2008 financial meltdown; have taken bribes to export weapons to the Saudis; have taken bribes to allow the use of child soldiers to secure African mining rights; have taken bribes to drum up business for the military industrial complex killing thousands of civilians.
De Niro can ACT like a tough guy. But he's just another shallow vacuous empty-headed liberal.
BTW, I used to consider myself a liberal. But no more. This word has lost all meaning. Now I consider myself a progressive. I.e., I support the policies of the progressive New Deal era (1933-1980) based on Keynesian mixed-market economics back when even Republican leaders were progressive (like Ike.)
Liberals can pretend to be progressives. But they can't hijack and destroy this word.
(I like Ike. Under him, the top tax bracket was 90%. He spent huge on a mega-government interstate highway system. Warned about the growing influence from the military industrial complex -- which Hillary, Bush and Obomba would later see as a "business opportunity.")
