Those on the left have some really bizarre definitions for certain words. Take the word “tolerance.” Leftists like to say that they are the tolerant people, that people should be able to just live their lives without being oppressed by other people. I agree with that sentiment. The problem is that leftists don’t mean that at all.
No, leftists mean, “If you agree with what I tell you to believe, then I won’t harass or assault you. This time.” Leftists have no tolerance for people that they disagree with even if the other party is being peaceful, even if the other party’s stance is simply that they want to be left alone. No, for the left, active participation and celebration of their pet cause is the only thing that is “tolerated” by them.
If you needed more proof of liberal intolerance, a recent story out of California will show it to you. Vanessa Serna writes,
Organizers of an upcoming America First rally featuring Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) and Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) say they were forced to move the event to a new venue after being bullied out of Orange County, Calif.
“Due to the vile threats received last week, we won’t announce the [name of the new] venue until a couple of days before the event,” Greene told The Epoch Times on July 15.
Gaetz and Greene have been holding America First rallies throughout the nation since May, but hit a snag when the Pacific Hills Banquet and Event Center in Laguna Hills, Calif. backed out of hosting their July 17 event.
Greene said the Laguna Hills venue was “harassed and bullied into canceling.” However, in a conversation with The Epoch Times on June 9, the event center claimed it never confirmed plans to host the rally.
Yes, those “tolerant” people are so brave, so understanding. So pathetic.
Let’s just say it in the open: tolerance begins with peaceful tolerance over disagreeing ideas. Without that, tolerance is meaningless word.
