Woodrow Wilson, self described imperialist

On February 23rd, 1903, Woodrow Wilson said:
I am of the class of men who are described as imperialists, and yet I have had such an intense sympathy with the men on the other side who are getting sat upon that I could almost have wished that my opinions were different that I might join their ranks.

From The Papers of Woodrow Wilson, Volume 14, Page 367. Also, here.

Progressives don't want you to know, and many of them don't even know, that when they lament and bemoan "imperialism" they are more often than not indicting themselves and their own ideology.
