Why are liberals so intolerant?

posted at 1:16 pm on August 1, 2012 by Rob Bluey

Mike Huckabee, the Family Research Council and others have declared this Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day. And while Americans should head to the chicken-sandwich restaurant to show their support, they should also take the opportunity to reflect on the intolerant left.

Watching liberals react to Dan Cathy’s comments on marriage and family over the past two weeks revealed their real agenda: shut down and silence anyone who doesn’t agree with them.

Big-city mayors from Boston, Chicago, San Francisco and Washington, D.C., vowed to use their political clout to keep Chick-fil-A out of their cities. When the company’s top spokesman died unexpectedly last week, one liberal friend of mine declared on Facebook, “Oh, karma, you crafty bitch.”

I thought liberals were the ones preaching tolerance?

The Chick-fil-A kerfuffle helped clarify a point conservatives have been making for years. Liberals are interested in debate only when they’re winning. And on the issue of marriage, they’re 0-for-32 in states that have put the question to voters.

That offers some explanation why mayors Tom Menino, Rahm Emanuel, Ed Lee and Vincent Gray promised to punish Cathy because of his differing view on marriage. What’s scary, though, is that individuals with this much clout think it’s appropriate to use that power to exact the punishment.

Never mind that Chick-fil-A takes no position on homosexual marriage, a point the company reiterated during the media firestorm. It didn’t matter. Liberal journalists fanned the flames by deeming Cathy’s comments endorsing the “biblical definition of the family unit“ as anti-gay.

And to make matters worse for the mayors, Chick-fil-A hires employees and serves customers without regard to their sexual orientation. So in this case, the only people discriminating are the mayors.

Sadly, this is a trend that’s played out too frequently of late.

Liberals used the same tactics they’re now employing against Chick-fil-A earlier this summer to attack University of Texas professor Mark Regnerus. He published one of the most comprehensive studies examining the outcomes for adult children whose parents had same-sex relationships. Rather than learn from Regnerus’ study or debate its findings, activists instead have sought to destroy his credibility and banish him from public discourse.

There’s even an ongoing inquiry to examine his work. Anyone can request such a probe of the University of Texas. In this case, it came from provocateur Scott Rosensweig, who uses the pseudonym Scott Rose. He claims “scientific and scholarly misconduct” on the part of Regnerus and has made it a top priority to discredit and silence the professor.

Rosensweig isn’t alone. A group of 200 scholars wrote a letter to the editor of Social Science Research, where the Regnerus study was published, questioning how the journal could print such a thing. The publication’s own audit, released last week, “did not find that the journal’s normal procedures had been disregarded, or that the Regnerus paper had been inappropriately expedited to publication, as some critics have charged.”

The whole affair illustrates, once again, the left’s intolerance of opposing views on hot-button issues. Regnerus could have reached a different conclusion and avoided the backlash. But because his results conflicted with the left’s preferred narrative on same-sex parenting, the critics pounced.

Peter Wood wrote in the Chronicle of Higher Education:

We get it: Researchers take note. Publish only findings that support the gay agenda. Departures from that rule will be punished up to and including career-ending academic show trials.

The summer wouldn’t be complete without an attack on the Boy Scouts of America as well. Earlier this month, after a two-year review, the organization reaffirmed its longstanding position of refusing membership for openly homosexual individuals.

That’s within its constitutional right as a private organization, but it was unacceptable to a group of individuals who would rather impose their own beliefs and trample on the Boy Scouts’ rights. The Human Rights Campaign and Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation immediately condemned the organization, calling it a “discriminatory policy” and “dangerous message.”

Americans have spent more than 200 years debating and disagreeing on a range of contentious issues. That’s why we treasure free speech. But these recent actions — using political threats against a restaurant chain, advocating for the termination of a university professor and attacking a private organization’s right of association — threaten to undermine that very right.

DO NOT call them “liberals”.

They are anything but.

They took lessons from the conservatives in the headline thread about where the center went, and added their own special brand of crazy.

The leftists stole the terms liberal and progressive.

They are neither in their Utopian militancy of any sort of fetishism/s.

because we, Conservatives, have allowed them to.

The radical homosexual agenda is a key piece in the progressives plan to destroy religion and the family unit, with the goal of replacing both with an all-powerful State.

What they have done to Regnerus is criminal. The US government pushes studies as fact, such as second hand smoke, with less credibility than Regnerus’.

Rocks on August 1, 2012 at 1:27 PM

It’s easier to destroy a man than to destroy his ideas. Liberals love to make the false equivalence that the merits of a concept are irrelevant, credibility is all that matters. Destroy the credibility, destroy the concept.

Modern progessivism projects wildly. The intolerance, discrimination, and prejudice is at the very heart of its ideology. It’s also tied to their egos: they’re ideas will create a perfect society and thus cannot be wrong and must be implemented at all costs over opposing views. If they cannot be wrong than anyone who disagrees with them must be wrong and any action against the dissenters is justified due to the danger they pose.

Meric1837 on August 1, 2012 at 1:27 PM

Leftists are despicable, lying scumbags who hate their fathers and need to take that out on everyone that reminds them of their fathers – all of society. They are nasty, stupid people who like to exercise control of others and then make fanciful claims about being “empathetic” and “caring” as they ruin the lives of everyone around them and destroy the value of everything within their reach.

When any society has reached a critical mass of leftists, that society will die. It cannot be stopped because leftists represent and champion stagnation and death. Our nation has gone far past critical leftist density and our fate is thus sealed.

If there were leftist single celled organisms with any power back in the beginning, multi-cellular life never would have been allowed and the Earth would have remained, to this day, nothing but slime … which is exactly what the leftists want and work every day to bring about. Leftists lower entropy with their demise. They are nothing but destructive and forces of retarded chaos to those societies unlucky enough to be burdened with their pathetic existences.

ThePrimordialOrderedPair on August 1, 2012 at 1:28 PM

Liberals are just playing to win, doing what they are good at: being the squeaky wheels, getting personal and in the face of the opposition, trying to discredit and smear and humiliate the opposition in an Alinsky fasion, and however they can. There’s no “fairness” rules for them in this game. Unfortunately, as stodgy or more traditional or more conservative types, we can’t compete with them on the level of personal humiliation.

No, we can’t compete with them on te “humiliation” level. One critical take away, the moral: anonymous donation to political causes is essential to protect conservatives from the militants. Conservatives that now call for “internet transparency” and the like for political donors are misguided and playing into the militants’ hands.

Just returned from lunch. Had to park a block away and wait in a 40 minute line and the staff was literally running to keep up—and they smiled and said thank you for your support. People there were all colors, races and from the folks around me, represented all denominations. I understand the police had to be called to several locations in Northern VA because the traffic circled blocks. Christians are catching on. They know they’re targeted by fascists who call themselves “liberal” Democrats.

Portia46 on August 1, 2012 at 1:28 PM

ATLANTA (AP) — Supporters of Chick-fil-A are planning to eat at restaurants in the chicken chain as the company continues to be criticized for an executive’s comments about gay marriage.

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, a Baptist minister, declared Wednesday national “Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day.”

Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy told the Baptist Press last month that the Atlanta-based company was “guilty as charged” for backing “the biblical definition of a family.” That unleashed a torrent of criticism from gay rights groups and others, who have called for boycotts and efforts to block the chain from opening new stores.

Opponents of the company’s stance are planning “Kiss Mor Chiks” for Friday, when they are encouraging people of the same sex to show up at Chick-fil-A restaurants around the country and kiss each other.

Chick-Fil-A patrons are encouraged to hurl onto smoochers.

Obama’s bla, bla, bla on “the congress didn’t act on jobs, this, that, and the other” only means that they didn’t agree with his leftist agenda.

It’s the leftists’ ‘logic’. They are silly people who’s looters need to be starved so that the moochers get out of the modern day plantations and pitchfork their masters. The looters keep them enslaved, for votes and power only, while said looters live better than emperors.

natasha333 on August 1, 2012 at 1:32 PM

I’ve been by three Chick-Fil-A’s in my town and each one is jam packed with overflow parking onto other store’s parking lots. The drive-thru’s had cars wrapped around each building. I’d say the Appreciation Day has been a rousing success. I don’t believe my town is an anomaly.

Why are liberals so intolerant? One word – hypocrisy. And not just vocal hyprocrisy, but they will use violent means to silence their opposition. One day, the people are going to start pushing back and say enough is enough. No more with the tail-wagging-the dog scenarios. We’re tired of vocal minorities bullying the majority. The citizens are patient, but their patience eventually will wear thin.

With a liberal, you can’t use a rational argument to change an irrational mind. Most would rather believe a lie than support a conservative argument.

I hit the CFA in Lewisville, TX at 11:05 this morning, and it was already completely swamped. I waited 30 minutes to place my order. I can only imagine what it looks like now.

Oh. No gays around—there could, of course, be gay folks who are as repulsed by the fascism as most freedom-loving people, but the activists weren’t there.

On a serious note – liberals are intolerant because the most entrenched of them lack a moral compass and refuse to acknowledge what rational people recognize as truth. Instead, they view the world through the prism of their wrong-headed belief that what they think or feel is the truth and then go one step further by projecting antipathy towards anyone else who does not think or feel as they do – the very definition of intolerance. Oh, and they are all congenitally incapabale of grasping irony.

He published one of the most comprehensive studies examining the outcomes for adult children whose parents had same-sex relationships.

At a glance, the number of statistically-significant differences between respondents from standard families and respondents from the other seven types of family structures/experiences is considerable, and in the vast majority of cases the optimal outcome—where one can be readily discerned—favors standard families
