Another one of the many myths of liberalism is that they, and only they, are open minded and tolerant and enlightened in the glory of their many graduate degrees and minorities (both racial and sexual) and on and on, etc., amen.
Of course, the truth is that they are only tolerant if you share their doctrinaire liberal beliefs. Otherwise, you might get “crucifixed.”
Consider the response of one girl’s classmates to her “McCain Girl” t-shirt, worn, unbeknownst to them, as a social experiment. This experiment was conducted in Oak Park, a suburb of Chicago.
“One person told me to go die. It was a lot of dying. A lot of comments about how I should be killed,” Catherine said, of the tolerance in Oak Park.
But students weren’t the only ones surprised that she wore a shirt supporting McCain.
“In one class, I had one teacher say she will not judge me for my choice, but that she was surprised that I supported McCain,” Catherine said.
If Catherine was shocked by such passive-aggressive threats from instructors, just wait until she goes to college.
Yup, those liberals, so tolerant and open minded.
Look, see how enlightened they are compared to the redneck, backwoods, no-nothing, conservatives living in flyover country.
The message from these liberals (like some of the gay liberals) is clear: Join us in our dogmatic groupthink, or else.
