A new study reveals the most intolerant county in America is not Rabun County in northeastern Georgia, where the film Deliverance was shot.
Nor was it Albany County, Wyoming, where Matthew Shepard was killed. And it was not Tallahatchie County, Mississippi, where Emmett Till was lynched more than a half-century ago, explained a report by the Foundation for Economic Education.
Its Suffolk County, Massachusetts, and its mostly white population of just under 800,000 that includes the heart of the Boston-Cambridge-Newton region.
Politically, Suffolk County is about as progressive as America gets. The countys three congressional districts the 5th, 7th, and 8th are represented by progressive Democrats: Rep. Katherine Clark, Rep. Ayanna Soyini Pressley, and Rep. Stephen Lynch. Just 5 percent of county residents identify as Republican. No GOP presidential candidate has claimed Suffolk County since Calvin Coolidge in 1924, FEE said.
It cited the survey commissioned by the Atlantic to assess the nations tolerance level.
In this part of the country, nine out of every 10 couples appear to share the same partisan leaning. Eight out of every 10 neighborhoods are political homogeneous. This means that people in Boston may have fewer cross-cutting relationships, as researchers put it. It is a very urban county with a relatively high education level. All these things tend to correlate with partisan prejudice.
Most people, The Atlantic notes, discriminate against the political opposition explicitly and implicitly. We do this in whom we hire, date, and marry. We make snap judgments about peoples patriotism, compassion, and intelligence, FEE said.
Some Americans, the results show, are more inclined toward this than others.
The makeup of Suffolk County fits closely with what researchers identified as Americas most politically intolerant bunch: woke white liberals.'

You folks are missing something. Diversity is a strength.
I wonder what audience this is for. Who are they trying to convince that liberals/progressives are the most politically intolerant people?
Asking for a friend?
Not surprised. Lived in the area from ‘94 to 2002. I went from being a very squishy moderate to a HARD RIGHT Repub in that time. The intolerance was laughable.
“We’re just better people...” and “I HATE people who don’t think like me...” were two of the most delicious bon mots ever heard there.
Imagine my shock.
Diversity to the Democrats means everyone looks different yet they are all marching in socialist lockstep with regard to all of the progressive lies that they repeat to each other.
I’m just surprised that the atlantic admits it....
They aren’t called Massholes for nothing.
I hear they’re nice to fake Indians.
Wyoming is where Matt Shepherd was killed. Matt was a homo prostitude meth dealer who was killed by a homo prostitude meth dealer. The 2 guys had gotten together for sex on numerous occasions. The murderer had been awake for 5 or more days with no sleep and needed 10,000.00 dollars for more meth. The bar where they met was homo friendly. The news media was completely lying about what actually happened. The book titled The Book of Matt tells the real story. The county in The movie Deliverance was just simply the location of a movie filmed in Georgia. The TV show The Vampire Diaries is filmed in Covington, Ga. There are no vampires in Covington. It is just a TV show.
ANYTHING they do is okay, because they are the Good People. They can beat Deplorable children for wearing red hats, and they will not bat an eye. If a Deplorable mere says words that makes a Special Person have a momentary bit of uncomfortable self-reflection, the Deplorable should lose their career and they may be beaten in public.
Oh BS. 96% of DC voted against Trump. I presume 2% of the remaining 4% were so illiterate, drunk or strung out that they accidentally voted for Trump.
OK, then, now we know Ground Zero...So, radar fuse set for 1500 feet, air burst, with backup barometric...
Ah, so now we believe what’s in the Atlantic.
The last thing Democrats care about is truth. Truth is meaningless. PERCEPTION is ALL.
Wyoming, Bad, because Gay is Good. Any Democrat would take pride in sucking the chrome off of a trailer hitch, just to demonstrate his devotion to diversity.
Way ahead of them. I’ve had this tagline for years.
The Twin Cities of Minnesota are not much different.
