Do Blacks and the Left Really Believe This?

I wish, I just wish, that the next time a liberal in a debate accused his conservative opponent of racism, that the conservative would respond with ridicule instead of treating the absurd criticism seriously. Say something like, "Oh, am I expected to respond in kind? Okay, Your mother wears army boots. Now that we've traded juvenile insults like a couple of third-graders, can we get back to an adult conversation of the issues?"

I just wish Saul Alinsky had not taught people to ridicule others.

It is so juvenile.

Saul Alinksy was a "fellow traveler"-not officially enrolled in the communist party but of the same ideology. Let's stop with this "Alinsky-ism" and just call it the Marxism it is.

Because it's Marxism in it's purest form. That's the whole point of progressivism, keep grinding down society until it falls to the most corrupt forces known to mankind.

marxism philosophically created progressivism, socialism was institutionalised as a political system

capitalism lead to socialism which lead to communism.

The Republican Party lead by TR created the Progressive Movement.

Capitalism, socialism and communism are economic systems.

Progressivism was (temporarily) adopted by TR after he left the Republican Party, when he formed the (failed) Bull Moose party.

You are right.

But the Democratic party did not originate the progressive movement.

Correct. That happened when it was hijacked by the McGovern wing.

President McGovern did not do so well.

Losing 49 states is definitely "not doing so well".
