Why “Progressive Penguin”?  We’re fond of penguins, frankly.  But add to that the symbolism of the penguin as spirit animal.  It represents determination, patience, sacrifice, endurance, and purpose.

For those of us who are progressive, these qualities are necessary today as never before.

This blog is dedicated to writing as resistance to the policies and politics of the far Right.  We take on Donald Trump and his coterie of White House interlopers.  We take on Republicans in Congress.  We take on regressive state governments such as our own North Carolina’s General Assembly.  We act as watchdogs – or rather, watchbirds – for what fresh alt-Right hell is looming in our paths.

Along the way, as penguins love to slip and slide on the ice, we plan to have fun.  Rise up and join us!
