I am sorry is that not what this entire thread is about? Calling the people at the NAACP intolerant based on the one video of this lady?

No I cant speak for what progressives think as a whole, I am sure there are some that feel the same and there are some that don't agree with her at all.
I am glad that you are able to.

With a membership of over 500,000, the NAACP is primarily a volunteer organization whose strength derives from its deep roots in local communities. It is the nation’s largest and oldest civil rights organization.
Yes. Much of the progress blacks have achieved over the past century is directly attributable to the NAACP. Long before such causes became popular, it led the fight to stop lynchings, to secure the right to vote for all Americans, to end segregation and discrimination, and to insure equal justice for all.
The answer to the question appearing above can be found by looking at your television news programs or reading the papers, or perhaps through personal experience.
The struggle for equality and freedom has not been won. Try imagining what life would be like for black Americans without the NAACP to fight the battles.
Supposed "victims" in a world filled with peril...No class, color or creed withstanding...

“A black kid asks his mom, ‘Mama, what’s a democracy?’
“‘Well, son, that be when white folks work every day so us po’ folks can get all our benefits.’
“‘But mama, don’t the white folk get mad about that?’
“‘They sho do, son. They sho do. And that’s called racism.’”

Amend that to "You better like us or we'll pass some legislation to make you like us!"
