    So very PC cliche misterman_Why am I not surprised______The truth in a nutshell;

    Intolerance of poverty and oppression created "Western Civilization" which resulted from a unification of european cultures, philosophies, christian values, political and economical ideologies and genes, resulting in the creation of one unique society based on individuality, cooperation and a love of freedom which brought about the formation of a unique political/economical system of unprecedented wealth and opportunity for those who were a part of it.

    Tolerance opened the door to people from every continent of every race, ethnicity, religion and culture who wanted a share of the milk&honey and for travel fare or by simply sneaking across a border in the middle of the night could have what western civiliation had created with the sweat and blood of it's creators, and refuse to assimilate, selfishly drain our resources, promote socialist policies, demand citizenship and shout "racism" when their host doesn't comply.

    As already stated, some people criticize political opinions by calling them 'intolerant', implying that intolerance is ALWAYS wrong.

    No, that's tolerance.

    Re: Is Intolerance Wrong?

    In the context of social intolerance, yes, intolerance is wrong. The idea that little divisions should keep us apart and prevent us from cooperating is foolish. This goes for race, gender, religion, cultural differences, and all that. That is the definition that is used in these kinds of debates about tolerance. Trying to push a different definition does not change the overall meaning. The point of tolerance, like many other things, is "Don't be a douche."
    Liberté. Égalité. Fraternité.

    No, that's tolerance.
    Wrong, that's cooperation by individuals who share common goals and interests, for which Western Civilization's would be freedom, security and prosperity.

    The Neomericans bring their socialist baggage, show little interest in assimilation and demand that America conform and cater to their personal goals and interests.

    Tolerance is the wholesale acceptance of such bad behavior, bad policy and immorality, to avoid being labeled a "racist" "sexist" "fascist" "homophobe" or "xenophobe".

    Intolerance is the key to survival of Western Civilization and the American Dream___and time is running out.

    So then the people who use that word that way are lying? The people answering the poll are lying too? and the people posting in this thread?

    No it's not. That's an ludicrous definition. See, that's your problem.

    Re: Is Intolerance Wrong?

    Dictionary definition:

    tol·er·ance

    a fair, objective, and permissive attitude toward those whose opinions, practices, race, religion, nationality, etc., differ from one's own; freedom from bigotry.

    Sounds good to me.
