Liberal 'Tolerance' Escalates! (/s)(Vanity)
Facebook ^ | 12/14/2010 | DWar

Posted on 12/14/2010 3:58:25 PM PST by DWar

The 'tolerance' of the left never ceases to amaze me. For the people who want: an Islamic Mosque at the place where Islamic fanatics murdered 2752 mostly Americans; Homosexuals to marry and also insert (sorry) their tawdry behavior into the minds of American children in the public schools and so much more, they are the most intolerant when it come to freedom of speech for any who disagree with them.

In the last week I had 2 "friends", unfriend me on Facebook. The first, a friend of 30 years, because I posted information about the TSA's groping of nuns and molesting children in the name of anti-terror. The second, a friend of 40 years, because I 'liked' SarahPalinUSA.

The following is the conversation I had with her.


TOPICS: Chit/Chat
KEYWORDS: bipartisanship; liberaltolerance; tsapervs

Her:
Sarah Palin? - P.U. big time. She's an idiot and I can't believe anyone likes that piece of crap. Even my REpublican friends can't stand her. Yuck, yuck, yuck

Me:
They said the same thing about my favorite president of all time, Ronald Reagan in 1978. For such a 'stupid' person she's positioned herself brilliantly to get the GOP nomination and likely the presidency.

Her:
I sure hope she does run because then we are assured of 4 more years of Obama. She is the most pathetic excuse for a politican I have ever seen. Even my strongly Republican friends hate her and won't vote for her. That's just what we need - some bimbo that walks off the job as president too because she's had an affair with some congressman. She will never be president and I sure hope not in my lifetime. The guys that pick up my garbage are more qualified than her and that is why I was so shocked to see anyone say they liked her. You make two people I have ever heard say they like her. She's an idiot than needs to stay home and bring up her children properly or stay on her riduculous reality show which is as big of joke as she is.

Me:
Gosh. Don't hold back. Say what you really feel. ; v)

Her:
I thought that was what I did.

Me:
Perhaps you did at that .... Merry Christmas!

I thought that would be the end of it but after a while I noticed she had unfriended me. So the conversation continued:

Me:
Sharon? Wow! Did you just unfriend me because I chose to like Sarah Palin's Facebook page?

Her:
absolutely - you can't even start to imagine how much I can't stand that puke. I doubt I would have anything in common with someone that likes her. I really mean it and there are tons more people like me that do NOT want our nation put in that idiots hands. We had enough problems with what Bush did to us, we do NOT want to risk this country to her.

Her:
Keeping you on my friend's list would mean I may have to see Palin's name again and it about makes me puke. I don't think you have any idea of the repulsion effect she gives me. So if I remove you, I don't have the chance of seeing her especially since you posted your like more than once. I remove anyone that likes her so don't consider it a personal thing.

ME:
OK. The "tolerance" for view points different from your own is overwhelming! Good luck with that. All the best to you personally.

So much for the ideas of Voltaire as summarized by Evelyn Beatrice Hall, "I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it."

What exactly are your (ex)friends reasons for Sarah Palin being ‘’stupid’’? Can she articulate them?

The absolute searing hatred people have for Palin is unfathomable to me. My personal experience is that the people who really hate her like this are usually women. I wonder why that is?

There are many people like that in our lives and on our Facebook. I just prefer not to engage in that kind of arguement. While I think she’s not the best person to run this country, I can’t deal with people that are adults that keep saying “puke”.

There are millions of similar ancedotes around the country. Family and friends completely and irrevocably rejecting each other over political divisions. This is how civil wars start.

Doesn’t that sort of behavior just blow your mind? I have close family that won’t even talk to me anymore, because I’m a conservative Republican who voted for Bush. Twice.

I can’t imagine their response, if I were to start making positive comments about Sarah Palin to them.

I listened patiently to all of their worship of Barack Obama during the 2008 election, but some of them cut communication with me because I dared to criticize their messiah.

So much for liberal tolerance, eh?

You’re well rid of this “friend” ....very disrespectful towards you.

Tolerance is only for the views that liberals value...never for Conservatives or differing points of view.

This person surely could benefit for a few sessions with a trained therapist.. Michael Savage always says, “liberalism is a mental disorder.” May have something there.

Yes, I stand corrected. But the women who dislike her seem to have some kind of irrational reaction that they didn’t even have to Bush. Maybe it’s just my own potential biases, but it really is noticable to me.

I doubt it. If her Facebook activity is any indication she spends about 6 hours a day playing Farmville. But she is CERTAIN Obama is good for America.

If I had a female Marxist friend like your little trash mouth
“her”, I sure would not admit it, much less post her garbage
on FR.
That being said, I do note that people like her are why America is finished, and off to the dogs.

I can never understand the strange bedfellows that the left and the Muslims have formed. The Islamics hate us for everything the left has brought to our society. They execute homosexuals, they treat women as property, and forbid her to own any. It is the most bizarre thing ever that the left supports that which would gladly slit their throat in an instant.

It is OBVIOUS that your "friend" is a PROZAC zombie! I knew several at work. Talking to them was like someone waving a RAZOR BLADE inches from your face.

It is quite simple and obvious.
Sarah is the strong and competent woman that they can never hope to be.

I believe Todd is a strong man but not THAT strong. What James Carville said about Hillary is also true about Sarah. "If she gave one of her balls to Obama they'd both have two!"

Sorry for the graphic language. :(

You did yourself a favor dropping those two friends. With friends like that who needs enemies. Liberalism truly is a mental illness. You will make new friends. In fact, I’ll be your buddy, I will PM you my email address and you can add me :-)

Don’t feel too bad. I get unfriended every week because I post conservative stuff on my FB page. The people who want everyone else to be “tolerant” are some of the most intolerant people I know.

Yep. I've got some family members that wouldn't lift a finger if they knew that I was being shipped off to the gulag for re-education.

I can see that families are about to start dividing along ideological lines, with liberal kids marrying liberals, and conservative kids marrying conservatives.

I've already told my daughter that when she gets old enough to date, that I'm going to test all of her beaus on their political leanings. She knows that libs are verboten, and that they'll be tossed from the front porch.

One of the things I think I've learned in 6+ decades is anger is an emotion that can often reveal frustration with one's own ignorance.

What it all boils down to is that I don’t see those old Hens on “The View” taking down a Cariboo somewhere in Alaska. Although that would make for a extremely funny reality show watching them try.

Progressive intolerance is a thing to behold. I have cousins that have unfriended me because I told them that ObommieDaCommie is a socialist...last year! I had two liberal friends last week say goodbye because I told them they were intolerant of conservative views.

They are dangerous.....SDS, Weather Underground, ELF, ALF, you name it.

My two daughters (13) already talk about who they will want to date later on. The list is pretty short though as they have limited it down to conservative and Christian, and they can’t be a goofball. Well, the “goofball” part pretty much disqualifies all the boys. For now. :)

I hate to appear sexist, here, but this information came from my dearly departed mother. She said women can be viscous in their hatred of another woman but less so if a man is equally hated.

OK Ladies. Flame me or confirm it!

If you want to know what a person is made of. Bring up Sarah Palin. Their reaction will tell you everything you need to know.

I think our side is too nice sometimes.

I hate to take advice from the President. But maybe we do need to argue with them and get in their faces. chew them out. personally attack them with words. beat them at their own game. atleast get our moneys worth.

they already hate us so its not like we have anything to gain by being so nice.

Hey, I was defriended by a “progressive” friend who tried to compare the Bush administration to McCarthyism. When I pointed out that the Venona papers have proved that McCarthy was actually correct and that there were a couple of hundred communist spies in the Federal government, he defriended me.

They have problems with facts. This guy didn’t even realize that the Progressive party was a collection of communists and socialists. Wow.

Ignorance is free, I suppose.

While this Sharon person sounds like an absolute horror, I, too, have QUIETLY unfriended one or two acquaintances because of their searing, violent comments towards Republicans. Both were gay and never let up on the subject of gay rights and evil right wingers. I never get political on Facebook. I guess I just think life is too short.

You just don't get it do you? Liberals can say and do whatever they want because they believe in 'moral relativism' and their heart's are in the right place.

Conservatives have to be perfect because they believe in moral absolutes, fail to perfectly live up to them and they are rich, selfish, oppressors. (/S)

I've had similar verbal skirmishes with people at work. I keep calm and usually end things with, “Give me one example of something Obama has done that you could say is proof of his supposed intelligence?” I haven't got an answer yet. One lady really gave me attitude and I told her she could think about it for as long as she wanted and get back to me. She hasn't got back to me.

I challenge people on their b.s. at almost every turn. I'm sure they talk about me behind back but they know they have to bring the goods or shut their mouths around me. I prefer it that way because I'm fed up with tolerating ignorance.

She's an idiot than needs to stay home and bring up her children properly

Interesting, because most libs think stay at home moms have sold out and should be out working. Or their children should have been aborted to begin with.

You're better off without her.

It's unwise to take positions taken based on emotion. The more left leaning a person is the more right brain and emotion dominated they are.

My wife is fairly conservative, However, she dislikes Sarah. Says she's a cheerleader=type personality. Which may be. She can a little annoying on a personal level.

But whether she personally grates , or not, is not the point. Sarah has her head screwed on straight, and that is all that counts when you mark the ballot. Will this person's policies conform with your beliefs?

And in Sarah's case, the answer is “yes”. For both my wife and me.

I don't expect her to vote for Sarah in the primaries, but I'm very confident she will vote against Hussein come the general.

My husband’s crazy uncle got our domain blacklisted at from Hotmail simple because I sent him an email expressing a point of view he didn’t agree with. So, instead of defending his viewpoints, he said we were “spamming” him. Now, none of my student’s on Hotmail can e-mail me. All because of one old liberal idiot.

Liberals are the most intolerant bunch of morons you’ll ever run into!
