Yet their much-vaunted tolerance is very intolerant of ideas other than their own. In many ways, they have long been “the people of hate”, who have no limits to how much they can hate.
Some, like Dr. Eric R. Pianka, even call for the extermination of mankind, or the vast majority (90%) thereof. (His proposal was of a pandemic plague of ebola to do it.) This is not unique among the left, as similar ideas are a reoccurring theme. People such as Paul R. Ehrlich, of “The Population Bomb” theory, to Dave Foreman of Earth First!, are just the latest in a long run of such people.
I truly wish I had a recording or transcript from many years ago, when Jesse Jackson was seeking the Democrat nomination for president. He went on a talk show, where he was peppered with questions, obviously flustering him. Then one of the hosts asked him, “What about all those people who would be opposed, some violently, to your presidency?”
Taken off guard, he blurted out that “We would have to build some kind of camps to put them in”, or words very close to that. It goes to a deeply held mindset for such ideas to even exist in a person.
Likewise, before Obama even had the nomination, there was a typical nonsense thread on another forum, as to “What if he is the antichrist?” At one point a liberal blurted out that he actually *wished* Obama was the antichrist.
“Because then he would be powerful, and give us what we want, and hurt the people we hate”, was his reply.
This was even shocking to some of the more level headed atheists, who though they did not believe in God, were not so totally convinced that they would be willing to embrace “the ultimate evil”, for the *benefits*.
That was the other thing that struck me arguing with them was their complete intolerance of other thought. When I laid out absolute proof and another person from their side put out an analysis which basically said the same thing they began their name calling. They would not even consider the possibility the government had fudged the numbers to make it look like a heterosexual disease.
They are the most intolerant close minded people in the world due to their ignorance.
