Liberal Tolerance: An Oxymoron
We’ve all heard it; conservatives need to be more tolerant. Of course, we are always being told that by the ever so tolerant liberals aren’t we? I looked up the definition of tolerance before starting this and here it is:
“A fair, objective, and permissive attitude toward those whose opinions, practices, race, religion, nationality, etc., differ from one’s own; freedom from bigotry.”
Sounds just like all your liberal friends, doesn’t it? I’ve experienced some liberal tolerance firsthand this past week. Here are some examples:
“She should have been a do-over, aka abortion”
“If you were to be treated in an emergency room, due to a grave accident and in need of large amounts of blood transfusions of your type of blood, let’s say, AB Negative… I guess it would NOT bother you or your father at all if they did not fact check what type of blood you needed. Oh well who are you to most of Americans?!! We don’t need to do any fact checking for you! So I guess all conservatives really don’t care if you die Jackie.”
Ah! Yes, it appears to me tolerance means getting rid of people who’s opinion are different that yours. Don’t get me wrong, these people have every right to say these things. That’s the beauty of the first amendment and living in America. But don’t you dare accuse me or anyone, whether they be on television or radio of not being tolerant when you yourself are anything but the poster child for tolerance.
It all boils down to hypocrisy. Liberals preach about how they are such tolerant, accepting people but then someone has a different view of them and all of a sudden liberals go on a tirade. Liberals like to call anyone who disagrees with them a bigot, racist, hatemonger, or in some cases (not all) they even go to the extreme to wish death upon a person.
But, hey tolerance has gotten us SO far in America. I mean we have to be tolerant of terrorists who killed 3,000 Americans so let’s give him a fair trial. Because, that’s what the families of those victims would want. Right? WRONG. I can assure you an overwhelming majority, if not all of the families of the victims feel this to be a slap in the face. And if Mr. Holder is so sure KSM will be convicted, why not save NYC the circus, save us the time, save us the money and just get rid of the guy. At the very least send him to a military tribunal and have them take care of it, which would be the correct thing to do.
Kids are being told they cannot bring a Bible into school or even simply pray in school. Now let’s imagine it this way. Say a kid comes to school holding a handful of books on homosexuality, maybe some pamphlets from NAMBLA. Do you think if a parent who is against gay marriage were to go to the school and ask that the child be told not to bring those in the school would grant that request? I think not. That parent would probably be called a homophobe. And we cannot forget to mention that if you are against same sex marriage you are a homophobe. It’s amazing that in this country we had to pass a Hate Crimes Bill. Someone explain to me how we are supposed to be able to tell if someone beat someone up because they hated them for their sexual orientation. Tell me this also, will gay people be charged if they beat up a Christian? Who are we to judge and say a person beat up someone because they hate the other persons lifestyle?
For some reason there is a growing movement in America to remove God from everything not just schools. We are being told that we have to be tolerant of other people’s beliefs at the expense of having to hide our own. Why can’t others be tolerant of our beliefs? It’s an incredibly sad thing when this Nation is trying to remove God, or others opinions. People come to America to express their beliefs, speak their mind and worship as they please.
Merry Christmas has become Happy Holidays, Happy Thanksgiving is Happy Turkey Day and Christmas carols are being banned in schools. Oh, but the children can sing about their fearless Commander-in-Chief.
And we cannot forget the shooting at Fort Hood. I’d call him a terrorist but I don’t want to jump to any conclusions……………mm yep he was and is a terrorist. We couldn’t “jump to conclusions” about a terrorist attack but the President was awfully quick to point out how a white cop acted “stupidly” in arresting a black professor.
You see, the simple fact is that tolerance is preached widely among liberals yet rejected by those very same people. I firmly believe the whole idea of tolerance and political correctness will do more to harm this country than anything.
Check out this story about a Best Buy Ad. America meet political correctness.
Or check out Keith Olbermann’s Countdown to see just how tolerant our left-wing friends are.
*Update: I realize not all liberals are like the ones I’ve portrayed but I think we can all agree there is an overwhelming amount of li berals who preach “Do as I say, Not as I do.” Take Al Gore for example, Mr.Enviornment, yet he refuses to stop eating meat (which according to PETA is the #1 cause of global warming), he flies around on private jets, and his 20 room mansion is fueld by natural gas and his home uses 20x the normal amount of energy, and his electricity bill for one month is $2,400. We can also chat about Mr. Michael Moore, the man who despises capitalism yet if it weren’t for capitalism he would not be as successful as he is.
