MSNBC’s Capehart: Tolerance ‘Should Not Be a Two-Way Street’
NewsBusters ^ | May 13, 2014 | Paul Bremmer

Liberals often say they’re big on tolerance, but apparently tolerance must flow only one way – toward liberals and their favored identity groups. So says MSNBC contributor Jonathan Capehart.

Appearing as a guest on Monday’s The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell, Capehart rebuffed the idea

...

[T]olerance, no, is not – it should not be a two-way street. It's a one-way street.

...

That’s the perfect encapsulation of liberalism – they will make you to understand that you are wrong and they are right. You will tolerate whoever they like, but as for you – tough luck. If you don’t share their “tolerant” beliefs, they will not tolerate you. Tolerance, in its true classical definition, is intolerable.

Yet another demonstration of the fact that liberals are hypocrites. They believe in nothing except what is expedient and advantageous for them.

I’ve always thought there was something inherently childish about liberalism. This pretty much confirms it.

So, I should have to tolerate you, but you shouldn't have to tolerate me?
And these are your rules?

“At least he’s honest. An idiot, but honest.”

What’s troubling is why some of them don’t always bother to lie. My thoughts:
1. They have acquired enough power they believe they can get away with it. AND
2. They want to push the envelope further and actually attempt to persuade people they are right and tolerance is a one-way street.

We see similar absurd stunts being pursued by democrats every day.

Yeah....they are sounding more and more diabolical by the day. Libs are genocidal intolerant maniacs.

It’s pretty clear Capehart is a homosexual therefore he’s mentally imbalanced.

In the old days liberals understood what ‘tolerance’ meant - today they’re plain old totalitarian jerks. Eff ‘em.

True. And based on what I just read that only 7% of journalists identify wiht republicans, well, that kind of says it all doesn’t it?

Publius911 to Capehart : Your moronic opinion is beyond self-defeating and irrational.

there’s really only one solution boiling down, and the left’s used it to kill 300 million people last century.

Tolerance, in its true classical definition, is intolerable.

Reads just like Scalia's opinion in that recent case where he said that the Liberals on the Court would interpret the 14th Amendment as prohibiting exactly what its text demands ...

A one way street? Kind of like a colon is supposed to be?

Maybe the left just does not understand the language they are using. When they say they are tolerant, they really mean they are intolerant of any views that different from theirs.

Ditto that!

It's like that creepy guy who follows you home from the market. As if being creepy and following you aren't bad enough, the real scary part is - he's not trying to hide.

I thought the word tolerance inherently was about two way street.
