What you are labeling intolerance is merely a symptom of the underlying issue of the right's stranglehold on government and policy decisions over the

be, when it is a reaction to what the left considers to be the destructive policies implemented by the far right. In the next election cycle, the left
may walk all over the right, putting the shoe on the other foot and perpetuating the problem. Nice.

What I label as intolerance is this-
The left doesn't believe in personal accountability, shame, etc... They want to be able to do anything they want guilt free, but as soon as someone
says that what they're doing is wrong, then the accuser is labeled a bigot, judgemental, etc.... The left wants rights without responsibilities.
The left doesn't believe in the right to criticize other's choices, actions, behaviors(unless that person is a conservative, in which case it's
perfectly acceptable to demonize them). The left is intolerant of anyone that doesn't share their view, or who they feel isn't tolerant enough.
They believe that diversity is people of all genders, races, origins, walks of life, etc.. that think exactly alike. Anyone who is a free thinker is
dangerous and needs reeducation or sensitivity training.
