Tolerance - "I Do Not Think That Means What You Think It Means"

Th continuing kerfuffle over Hillary's diatribe against the so-called “basket of deplorables” keeps paying dividends if for no other reason than it shows just how bad the Left has become in regards to tolerance – they have absolutely none despite their touting their tolerance for other people's beliefs, be they religious, moral, or political.

And so it is with the “deplorables” so disliked by Hillary – we are disliked and minimized because our beliefs differ with theirs.

“Throughout the western world,” author Mark Steyn has observed, ‘tolerance’ has become remarkably ‘intolerant,’ and ‘diversity’ demands ruthless conformity.” As Hillary made much too obvious, progressive multiculturalism may well be the most judgmental, vengeful, unforgiving quasi-religious sect abroad in the western world today, Islam included.

Black author Shelby Steele coined the phrase “zone of decency” to describe the sacred preserve in which progressives imagine themselves clustering. To distinguish themselves from lesser mortals, argued Steele, they are quick to “decertify” those who do not embrace the values du jour. As Steele argued, progressives need “only the display of social justice to win moral authority.”

In other words they don't really have to believe what it is they're putting forth in the way of social justice, they only have to look like they do.

The problem is that the curtain has been drawn back and we can now see exactly what they're doing and why...and it ain't pretty.
