18. FDR was forced by circumstance and expediency to adopt "progressive" policies. But he was

not progressive and a closer look at his record shows racism and anti-semitism permeated his policies.

It is time that the left stop adulating FDR.

If you insist on doing so, at least provide a caveat acknowledging the lethal harm his racism and anti-semitism did during his presidency despite his policies helping white people.

As president, Roosevelt is widely celebrated by American 菟rogressives for fathering the New Deal, which encompassed financial regulations, union rights and a number of social programs. While FDR痴 extramarital affairs are well known, what is less known is his racist and anti-Semitic worldview and white supremacist loyalties, which contributed to the suffering and death of millions of the most vulnerable people.
