    So the left is not the Democratic Party?

    This is correct and much of that intolerance is a good thing... but the point is that many of the Left are becoming intolerant of things that should not be a big deal and that they escalate things to a degree that it is really just rudeness.... also, they are dictating their beliefs/ideology as the only valid and correct ones and bordering on suppression of free speech as a result. That **** is just wrong.

    Of course those three (Hannity, Limbaugh, and Coulter) have been shrieking for well over a decade now, so the left still has some catching up to do.

    I don't quite see the pendulum in the middle just yet.

    So, I voted "other".
    surely those on the Left know that those three are nutcases and do not speak for probably the majority of people that support Trump or that are Right Wing... right?

    Were you intolerant of Obama withdrawing our troops from Iraq; arguably the lynchpin for the entire growth of ISIS? Were you one of the "Bush lied, people died" chanters back in the day? Now you're a HAWK?

    Not as intolerant as the right.

    Is the whole of the left intolerant? No. So why the ridiculous title?

    Agreed...

    Right now there are thousands of innocent little children who have been taken from their families and locked in cages. Their parents have been sent half way around the world never to see them again. That is morally impermissible and we have a responsibility to do everything we can to stop that from happening.

    Right now thousands of our Kurdish Allies who fought beside us in the war terror are being slaughtered needlessly while the ISIS prisoners they helped us capture are being set free and allowed to re-engage in the killing of our people and our allies. That is morally impermissible and we have a responsibility to do everything we can to stop that from happening.
    I disagree with pretty much all of this...

    Right now we have a criminal president who is very clearly and incontrovertibly guilty of more than 20 different felonies. All of which should require his removal from office. He regularly abuses the power of his office on a daily basis and has obliterated the credibility of the United States radically reducing it's standing in the world and leaving us with little or no moral authority. That is unacceptable and we have a responsibility as Americans do do everything we can to stop this from happening.
    Pretty much all politicians, including Presidents, commit felonies, have crooked business dealings, commit immoral sexual acts, start or continue foreign wars, etc. Name a President and I bet I can find some horrible thing that they have done...

    I support Ellen... that was the point...

    Clearly, those two are tolerant of each other, no matter what others (who don't matter) demand, which means ultimately the issue is BS. And Whoopi G has always shrieked and bitched.
    She is an example of the problem that I am referring to...

    But you imply that tolerance means allowing others to behave as decrepit as possible without criticism; as in, frowning on a person who wishes to call another a "faggot."
    I am shocked at how many people in this thread can't keep the point in context. The point is the degree of intolerance... not that everybody should tolerate everything...

    What some of "the Left" are doing today smacks of obnoxiousness.
    That is all that you needed to respond with...

    But this is a counter-reaction to how irresponsibly tolerant Conservatives have become
    Yes, of course... they have an excuse to be shouting down speakers, blocking traffic of innocent motorists, etc. I bet you don't just stop with their excuse... I bet you think it is their right to do that... to go into a restaurant and insult a person until they are forced to get up and leave... right?

    But, like I stated, this thread is only about an attempt to denigrate "the Left." See what I mean about people's political extremism?
    Wrong. The thread is to talk about intolerance of differing ideas, etc. from the Left. Those not doing it are not being discussed. I also did the same thin about Conservatives who were being idiots about Obama... but like so many extremists on both sides... you guys forget that and cast incorrect statements instead.
