First of all, it's pretty dense for the CEO of McDonald's to criticize the parents of children who just lost their lives and he deserves criticism for it but listen to the last part of this video:

McDonald's CEO apologizes for messages to Chicago mayor



It sounds a little too uncomfortably like this:

'In a few weeks, all of Mao's major opponents in the Party had been denounced and driven from public life, and government offices throughout China were occupied by gangs of Red Guards declaring themselves to be 'Chairman Mao's little soldiers'. Government bureaucrats and politicians at all levels were called in for 'revolutionary self-criticism and struggle sessions'. These sessions could take any form from a midnight debate in the culprit's house with a few Red Guards to a humiliating public show-trial attended by thousands. The fate of those called out for 'struggle sessions' varied considerably. Some were let off with a caution after making a suitably abject apology for their ideological misdeeds, while others were sent into internal exile or imprisoned.'

Conservative implies preserving history, "MAGA"implies getting back to
the past, "progressive" means improving and moving on to the future.

No, that is the meaning of the word. Science, technology, medicine,
human rights, anything you can name within the human realm undergoes a
progression. The root of the term is "progress", to improve, become
better, more advanced, more efficient, more equitable, etc..

You oppose all that because you perceive that change threatens some
wealth, privilege or pride of yours. Conservatives want to conserve
those things, I don't. I have every advantage and privilege a person
could want and that does not sit particularly well with me.

Is returning to communism/socialism/fascism progress? Is that moving forward?
Do you know who the original Progressives were? Do you understand that there
is very little difference in their thinking and today’s Progressive
thinking? They were sick people, the eugenicists, among other things, and
nothing much is changed. You should do some research. Oh - LOL - *you* do
research? *You* try to learn something? I guess I had a brain fart.

OMG, you are full of humor today. It doesn’t sit well? So what are you
doing about it besides your usual logorrhea? How much does your guilt compel
you to give to charity every year? About zero? How much volunteer work? About
the same? You are the very definition of virtue signaling. Lots of talking,
zero doing.

Are you kidding? Dutch never stops telling us what a saint he is. He always
says the “right” things, never offends the oppressed among us. Everyone
knows that about him. He is just such a good person. Every mother would be so
proud of him... if he were still 5 years old.

perfectly formed needing no improvement, which explains the overt
hostility he displays when confronted with change.

No. A person who tries to be a better person is by definition admitting
to their shortcomings. That is the opposite of claiming to be a good person.

No. A person who tries to be a better person is by definition admitting
to their shortcomings. That is the opposite of claiming to be a good person.

How about a person that hates others so much, he’ll sacrifice his own family’s home,
health and life savings, by voting to give up his healthcare; just in hopes of having that
happen to another? (THAT, is one sick person).

"progressive" means improving and moving on to the future.
Only to the truly ignorant. In other words, you and your ilk.
No, that is the meaning of the word. Science, technology, medicine,
human rights, anything you can name within the human realm undergoes a
progression. The root of the term is "progress", to improve, become
better, more advanced, more efficient, more equitable, etc..
Is returning to communism/socialism/fascism progress? Is that moving
forward?
Do you know who the original Progressives were? Do you understand that
there
is very little difference in their thinking and today’s Progressive
thinking? They were sick people, the eugenicists, among other things, and
nothing much is changed. You should do some research. Oh - LOL - *you* do
research? *You* try to learn something? I guess I had a brain fart.

You oppose all that because you perceive that change threatens some
wealth, privilege or pride of yours. Conservatives want to conserve
those things, I don't. I have every advantage and privilege a person
could want and that does not sit particularly well with me.
OMG, you are full of humor today. It doesn’t sit well? So what are you
doing about it besides your usual logorrhea? How much does your guilt
compel
you to give to charity every year? About zero? How much volunteer work?
About
the same? You are the very definition of virtue signaling. Lots of talking,
zero doing.
Do you live next door to 'dutch', or something? You seem to know more about
him than the whole world knows about 'Bill Bradley' (none of which it wanted
to know).
Are you kidding? Dutch never stops telling us what a saint he is. He always
says the “right” things, never offends the oppressed among us. Everyone
knows that about him. He is just such a good person. Every mother would be so
proud of him... if he were still 5 years old.
Interesting that you consider calling someone a good person to be an
insult. That says more about you than it does about me.
As always, you misunderstand. What I’m calling you is a person who thinks
he’s a good person. The other point is that talking “good”, does not
make you good.
I challenge you to show where I ever claimed to be a good person,
That is pretty much the definition of virtue signaling, and virtue signaling

It's not about me, I'm piss poor at it, but I know it's the right thing
to do. Why should self-criticism be a taboo topic? I didn't bring it up
but I do think it illustrates a difference between liberal and
conservative attitudes. Do you think women would have achieved as much
as they have if conservatives had their way? Would gays have gained
acceptance as much as they have? The advancement of human rights
requires people to constantly re-examine their beliefs. Conservatives by
nature don't do that very well. They get all offended and defensive when
the subject is raised, as you are demonstrating.

Are you endorsing this, then:

'In a few weeks, all of Mao's major opponents in the Party had been denounced and driven from public life, and government offices throughout China were occupied by gangs of Red Guards declaring themselves to be 'Chairman Mao's little soldiers'. Government bureaucrats and politicians at all levels were called in for 'revolutionary self-criticism and struggle sessions'. These sessions could take any form from a midnight debate in the culprit's house with a few Red Guards to a humiliating public show-trial attended by thousands. The fate of those called out for 'struggle sessions' varied considerably. Some were let off with a caution after making a suitably abject apology for their ideological misdeeds, while others were sent into internal exile or imprisoned.'
