Tolerance from the Left: agree or else
One of the things – among the ever-growing number – the Left preaches is tolerance. They are constantly spouting on and on about the need for open mindedness, inclusiveness and listening to those with whom there may be disagreement.
Not to sound too much like our misguided friends on the Left, but tolerance is a good thing. Before you close the page, and go back to scrolling through your Facebook newsfeed, let me explain.
Listening to other viewpoints and perspectives, allowing others to live their lives as they see fit – if they aren’t bringing harm to someone else – is a good thing. Who could really argue against that? A society can’t function without some form of tolerance. Let’s face it, you’re likely not going to agree with everyone, 100 percent of the time.
Let’s remember, though, that just because I tolerate something, that doesn’t mean I agree with it. People tolerate a screaming child in a public area, but that doesn’t mean they like it. I can believe the work of Will Ferrell is complete and utter garbage, but he can still continue to churn out films, if enough people are willing to pay to watch. I can hold diametrically opposed opinions on an individual’s lifestyle, their religious and/or political beliefs and still not hate or hold any personal animosity towards that individual.
However, step out of line with the Left, present a differing opinion and watch the hateful insults fly. A few of their favorites include: racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, transphobic or just generally anything else you can attach an “ism” or “phobic” to.
Basically, the Left is using tolerance as a way to beat you into submission and if not, fine, then they will just attempt to use force to get what they want.
Check out what Leftist darling and Hollywood idiot, “comedienne” Chelsea Handler had to say about using the military to remove Pres. Trump from office.
Also, the head honchos at Google are extremely tolerant of everything….except different opinions. Google engineer James Damore was fired for stating how biological differences between men and women can lead to men and women being better suited for particular positions.
Ironically, Google’s vice president for diversity and inclusion responded to Damore’s dismissal by saying:
“Many of you have read an internal document shared by someone in our engineering organization, expressing views on the natural abilities and characteristics of different genders, as well as whether one can speak freely of these things at Google. And like many of you, I found that it advanced incorrect assumptions about gender. I’m not going to link to it here as it’s not a viewpoint that I or this company endorses, promotes or encourages.”
In a funny twist of events, some funny posters recently began showing up near Google’s office.
So again, basically when the Left says tolerance, diversity, inclusion and the alike, they mean you better be in total and complete agreement or else. Not opinions that challenge the status quo here!
Not real tolerant, huh?
