I find it incredibly interesting that the people who say that they are for “tolerance” and that they just want people to “follow the science” are both incredibly intolerant of those with differing opinions and also intolerant of real science (as in using the scientific method).
Or maybe I’m just being too hard on them, and those “tolerant” people simply want someone else to tell them what to do instead of thinking for themselves.
Regardless of the cause, some of the actions taken by those leftists are completely over the top and out of proportion to any disagreement with someone else. Today’s example of that insanity involves a pastor and his family. Ella Kietlinska and Joshua Philipp write,
Pastor Brian Gibson, who has been a target of cancel culture for resisting draconian lockdown measures as well as for exercising his First Amendment rights, has received hundreds of death threats. He and his family have experienced various forms of harassment.
“Just for being a vocal proponent of the First Amendment, just for being someone that supported President Trump, and someone that spoke out actively, I received close to 1500 death threats. People broke into my house, kicked my gate down, hacked all of our accounts,” Gibson said on EpochTV’s “Crossroads” program.
“It’s amazing what they can do and how coordinated some of these intimidation rings can really be. I think I underestimated what that would really be until it happened to me.”
Gibson and his family were threatened on social media, and received intimidating phone calls or mail. It affected his three kids ages 9 to 15, the pastor said.
“My kids had to leave their house—weren’t able to go home for over a month. And then … we found out we couldn’t go back to our house, we had to sell that home and relocate.”
The thing is, I can bet that none of the people threatening Gibson and his completely innocent family were upset about Starbucks being open. Wouldn’t want to inconvenience the leftists, would we?
This nonsense has to stop. Leftists are consistent hypocrites, and they’re going after completely innocent people. Instead of keeping a bunch of peaceful January 6, 2021 Capitol Hill protesters locked up for six months (see here for more about that), the Department of Justice should be doing their job of upholding the Constitution by arresting the people threatening the lives of these innocent people.
