The idea of a tolerant liberal is a myth. Their idea of toleration is stop believing the operating assumptions of limited government, moral absolutes, rational sexual behavior, private property, decentralized civil government, freedom of speech, the right to bear arms, the Constitution and we’ll tolerate you.
And if you don’t do what we demand of you, we’ll shut down your business, take you to court, boycott you, keep you from working in this town again, and ridicule you in the press. If you’re really stubborn, we’ll pray to our inner god and call down your destruction.
Then there was Samuel L. Jackson who said some very tolerant things about Conservative Republicans and their Tampa Convention:
Jackson tweeted that it was “‘unfair’ that Tropical Storm Isaac had spared the GOP convention in Tampa and appeared to be heading for New Orleans. Jackson said in a profanity-filled tweet that he was ‘not understanding God’s plan’ given the fact that the storm was not disrupting the Republican gathering. ‘Unfair s—t’ the Oscar-nominated actor known for his colorful language said on Twitter. ‘GOP spared by Isaac!’” New Orleans “prolly [probably] f—ed again! Not understanding God’s plan.”
Liberals Want You to Die if You Disagree with Them

I would just like to point out that liberals support the Constitution and embrace freedom, even freedom of expression.
Those that want people to die are not liberal.
The ones that want to eliminate free speech, abolish the Electoral College are not liberal.
They are leftists who want to destroy the US. They want open borders, a socialist/communist government, they want anything that offends them banned, including speech.
I am a liberal. I believe in more freedoms, not less. I believe in individual rights and equality. Not special treatment for selected few. I believe in peace through strength and a reduction of enabling foreign countries that wish us harm. I believe in a strong border and an adherence to existing immigration laws. I believe in decriminalizing drugs and eliminating intrusive "common-sense" laws that punish innocent men and women.
I am a liberal that has served in the military and honor all men and women who also have served. I am a liberal who believes in marriage equality for all adults. I refuse to acknowledge bathroom laws.
I am a liberal.
It's not liberals that want more laws and bigger governments. It's not liberals who want higher taxes and a reduction in individual freedoms. It is not liberals who want globalism and a one-world government.
Those are the leftists, the socialists, the communists, the ones who hate freedoms and liberties and ignore individual rights.
Apologies for the rant, but as a liberal, I wanted to speak out.
