My concern is with political intolerance. I frequent the Charlie Rose show message boards too. There and here I have found an unreasonable amount of hostility directed toward people of “other than” liberal leanings.
Too often someone will declare themselves of-neither-party only to later reveal themselves as militant leftist: and obviously Democrat.
In Sam Harris’ book he speaks of the evils of religious intolerance, so it is surprising (for me) to find political intolerance here.
No, I’m not disappointed that someone might take the conversation into a different direction, I’m concerned that the direction always tends towards political intolerance from the left. I thought the left was supposed to be the party of tolerance?
Why alienate moderate republicans, they might vote for your guy?
I have learned silence from the talkative, toleration from the intolerant, and kindness from the unkind; yet, strange, I am ungrateful to these teachers. -Kahlil Gibran.
