Cop Block Gets Exposed as Radical Hate Group Following Dallas Mass Shooting

Before going forward, this article isn’t about me taking a “side” between cops and African American males who, far too often, are murdered by police officers. I have no “side” in any of this except to see that murderers face justice and we come together as a nation to do what we can to fix […]

This Profound Video Explains Why Clickbait Is Destroying Our Political System

To start with, let me first disclose the fact that I am not a traditional journalist, and yes, I used a “clickbait” title. I have never taken a single course in journalism, and I was mostly disinterested in politics for years after being raised to be a conservative activist, before leaving the GOP as a […]

Cop Block Is Disgustingly Defending The Oregon Militia

Here at Forward Progressives, we have published a number of articles exposing the anti-government organization Cop Block and others like them. Posing as police accountability organizations, they have tricked many people into following their social media pages and sharing their articles which try to paint all members of law enforcement as villains. Admittedly, there are […]

5 Websites Liberals Really Need To Stop Sharing From

I often see people who call themselves liberals or progressives claim that they’re so much smarter and well-informed than Republicans. Over and over again, they tout their intellectual superiority while pointing to conservatives as being ignorant for believing “news” sources like¬†Fox News or The Blaze. As much as liberals are right about those sources, many […]

These 6 Groups Are Stopping Us From Ending Police Brutality

People on both sides were quick to weigh in on the McKinney, Texas police officer who slammed a girl into the ground and pointed his service weapon at two teenagers. Naturally, the usual folks started screaming at each other about who was right and who was wrong, as is the case whenever a viral police […]

Texas Gun Activist: Lawmakers Who Voted Against Open Carry Should be Arrested and ‘Hung’

I’ve reached a point with gun nuts (especially open carry advocates) where all I can really do anymore is laugh and pity them. What kind of sad, pathetic life must someone lead to be so paranoid that they feel they need a gun with them at all times? And on top of that, these people […]

Gun Activist Kory Watkins Warns TX Lawmakers ‘Treason’ Is ‘Punishable By Death’ (VIDEO)

Apparently the perceived right to open carry a weapon is more important than life itself, according to Cop Block and Open Carry Tarrant County coordinator Kory Watkins. Watkins has been the face of the open carry movement in Texas and has not only been actively protesting for the ability to carry a weapon in public […]

The NYPD Demonstrates The Very Real Problem With Law Enforcement

I’ve been a supporter both of law enforcement and legitimate police accountability groups since the police brutality issue began. Recently, I marched in a #BlackLivesMatter protest and met the family of Victor White III who allegedly died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the chest while in the back of a New Iberia Parish deputy’s […]

The Media Shoulders Some Of The Blame For The Divide Among Police And Civilians

Police accountability and justice shouldn’t be a “left vs. right” issue, but sadly, that’s exactly what it’s turned into. It’s individuals with agendas based on personal feelings rather than facts, who are out trying to “win” an argument. At the end of the day, both sides agree that bad police officers should be held accountable. […]

Why More Americans Need to be Skeptical of Advocacy and Accountability Groups

I applaud anyone who devotes some of their time to advocating for a cause in which they strongly believe. That’s why I got into studying and debating politics¬†to begin with. I want to do what I can with whatever gifts I’ve been given to hopefully make some sort of a difference. But I would never […]
