What is tolerance?

WE are told that religion is the scourge of the world, that all conflict and hatred is bound up in man's inability to come to terms with everyone inherent worth and the desire to make others feel less moral than we.  Yet, in the world that we live, many claim the badge of tolerance and therefore they feel that they are morally superior. They accept everyone as they are, they make no judgement, they do not discriminate, they love everyone. EXCEPT.......

They really don't.

There are many examples of this:

  • Sarah Palin and her Down's Syndrome son Trig have been attacked mercilessly by the left using terns that they themselves say are hateful (ie. C**t, Retard, Imbecile, Batshit Crazy, Bit*h, etc)
  • Rush Limbaugh is a large target because he isn't afraid to tell the truth about what is going on in Washington DC and he must be stopped, even if they need to tell lies about him to get his voice off the air.
  • The TEA Party movement is called traitors and terrorists, because they simply want the size of government to shrink, they want American citizens to be responsible citizens, they want illegal aliens to not be given handout that have been paid for by the Americans who are now being told they will never see any benefits from their years of sacrifice.
  • The military are ridiculed by those who have never offered a single eyelash to defend our way of life, nor protect another human life (and that includes pre-born life).

One begins to wonder how those so intolerant of so much can call themselves tolerant?

Because the term does not mean what it originally meant. defines tolerance as: 

  1. a fair, objective, and permissive attitude toward those whose opinions, beliefs, practices, racial or ethnic origins, etc., differ from one's own; freedom from bigotry.
  2. a fair, objective, and permissive attitude toward opinions, beliefs, and practices that differ from one's own.
  3. interest in and concern for ideas, opinions, practices, etc., foreign to one's own; a liberal, undogmatic viewpoint.
But as we are now seeing, there is very little acceptance of opinions that differ from one's own.
Instead the term has been redefined (a well-used tactic of the left) to mean the complete opposite of its original meaning.  The self-righteous left is now using this term to mean ..........................................

The intolerance of intolerance.

Let that sink in............... Instead of demanding that other's be respected for their inherent worth, we are told that some people are to be more respected and many people are to be disrespected because they supposedly are disrespecting others.  The Moral High Ground is to hate others because they hate.

Doesn't this sound a little like two wrongs being used to try to make right?

I, being a self-righteous elitist get to define who the haters are and then I get to hate them, and not simply with hate, but with


The world  has become a more dangerous place because Tolerance has reared its ugly head in our world.  When those who like to feel that they love everyone, that they are accepting of others', and non-judgemental become the arbiters of the terminology this is the ugly turn it can take. Now Hating has become okay as long as you are hating those who you believe, even without cause, are hating.

Those who claim to speak for the oppressed have now become the oppressors by trying to remove the voice of those they disagree with. It isn't even about helping the oppressed anymore, it has become about: hurting and destroying anyone who thinks differently than you.

Tolerance = Bigotry    How do we un-weave this tangled web of lies and deceit?

A shout out to Alfonzo Rachel for clarifying this for me.
