Video: Liberal WaPo editor explains how tolerance is only for people who agree with him

posted at 8:41 pm on May 14, 2014 by Mary Katharine Ham

A career journalist and one-time Washington Post editorial board member, Jonathan Capehart explains on MSNBC how tolerance, despite its definition, is actually all about judgmenty judgment and forceful reeducation:

[T]olerance, no, is not – it should not be a two-way street. It’s a one-way street. You cannot say to someone that who you are is wrong, an abomination, is horrible, get a room, and all of those other things that people said about Michael Sam, and not be forced — not forced, but not be made to understand that what you’re saying and what you’re doing is wrong.

I love how he backs off of “forced” for the more genteel Orwellian formulation, “made to understand.” Who’s in charge of making you understand? How many will be made to understand? Just public figures who disagree with Capehart? Employees of important national organizations? Regular old private citizens chatting on the Twitterz? By what mechanism will we be made to understand by Capehart and his peers?

Sports writer William Rhoden offered a refreshing position on this, even though he’s firmly left of center himself. This is the controversial notion Capehart felt he had to push back on:

I think that to deal with things openly there has to be an open back-and-forth dialogue. Tolerance can’t just work one way. You can’t just be one way, that anybody who speaks out… this cannot turn into a Gestapo-type situation where if you express discomfort with something, then you’re cast as a homophobe and you’re fined by the league. I think that there has to be a back-and-forth.

It’s a shame that it’s a rare and noteworthy position for someone on the Left to accede that not every single person who disagrees with every one of their views is a bigot. Good on you, Mr. Rhoden.

I’m reminded of Keli Goff, writer for The Daily Beast and The Root, who risked the Left’s ire by making this fair and heterodox point after the “Duck Dynasty” row:

Though nearly half of the country opposes same-sex marriage, the media narrative has become dominated by the storyline that only a small segment of backward bigots who hate gay people oppose same-sex marriage. That simply isn’t true. (Reinforcing bias in reporting on this story is the fact that many outlets caved to pressure to use the term “marriage equality” in coverage, when such a term is an activist creation. Interracial marriage is called interracial marriage, not “marriage equality.” If supporters of same-sex marriage view the civil rights fights as comparable, the same language standard should be applied.)

Polls also show 59 percent of Americans now find same-sex couples morally acceptable. That means there are plenty of Americans who don’t have a problem with gay couples but seem to have a problem with the word “marriage” being used to define their relationships.

Among my family members who oppose same-sex marriage, I have been told to congratulate my gay friends whose weddings I have attended. But I have simultaneously been told that such unions don’t fit my relatives’ biblical definition of marriage. I have further been told that in the context of the oft repeated phrase “love the sinner, hate the sin,” they see gay people no differently than they would view a straight person like me who decides to live with someone “in sin” (as the biblical saying goes). It wouldn’t make me a bad person but one who according to biblical text would be “living in sin.” In other words, they wouldn’t throw holy water on me but also wouldn’t throw me a parade. Most of all, they wouldn’t really care how I live my romantic life at all, as long as I was happy.

There’s a big gulf between the relatives I describe and someone who “hates” gay people. The fact that so many liberals can’t see the difference speaks to the tremendous gulf that has grown in recent years between the increasingly vocal liberal wing of the Democratic Party and, well…everyone else.

But as we see at Brandeis and Smith College and Rutgers and the Washington Post, tolerance is no two-way street.

The roving flash mob of progressive fascists will get you if you get out of line, whether in thought, word, or deed. You will be made an example for others, so that others will fall in line.

Capehart’s line of thinking goes hand-in-hand with the mindset of those in Wisconsin at the ‘White Privilege’ conference. They truly believe that anything position they hold is unquestionable, and anything they can’t be racist, sexists or homophobic because they are so intrinsically pure.

The fact that you end up with a New York Times sportswriter here being the voice of reason shows that there’s still a lot of arrogant, progressive craziness at the WaPo, even after Ezra Klein and his juicebox mafia were sent packing to Vox by Jeff Bezos.

If you can’t cast someone you disagree with as evil and bigoted and a hater, you might just have to admit that they have a right to their opinion without losing their job and being shunned by proper society.

Heck, you might even have to admit that they have a valid reason for their beliefs. Once you start down that slippery slope, your entire edifice of absolute moral superiority might just collapse into rubble.

This is my homophobic rant against Michael Sam

The double standard is so obvious, so inevitable, and so common that I’m bored with pointing it out. Tell Tebow to stop praising his Lord and Savior, and the country will laugh and cheer along, but tell Sam to stop trying to turn his sex life into international headlines, and you’ll be bound, gagged, and tossed into a river.

Make no mistake, what Jonathan Capeheart is saying is that actual ‘tolerance’ is not enough. You must actively celebrate and participate in ‘X’ to not be considered a stupid-racist-sexist-homophobic-Islamophobic-xenophobic-home-schooled-dirt-eating-snake-handling-brother-marrying-deer-shooting-squirrel-eating-hick-n-hustering-trailer-park-living-moonshine-running-meth-cooking-one-tooth-brushing-single-hair-comb-overing-blue-plate-’n-light-special-luvin’-stand-at-attention-WalMart-shopping-ignorant-untravelled-flag-waving-cry-in-my-beers-with-Lee-Greenwood-Teabag-waving-guns-n-Bibles-bitter-clinging Neanderthal by the Left if you deviate one iota from their current orthodoxy.

I support gay rights, but I would have told Michael Sam and his partner to ‘get a room’ and if Capeheart thinks that makes me intolerant, he should just wait and see what happens when you try to force other people to ‘care.’ I certainly do not care what he does or about his relationship, but I could easily become very intolerant of him and his ilk, especially if they are going to act like Fascists.

The problem that I see with a lot of gay people is that it is simply insufficient for me to tolerate whatever they want to do. They seek my approval and acceptance. No one gets my approval and acceptance because they ‘were born that way’ or whatever. There are a whole lot of heterosexuals of whom I will never approve or accept.

And, doesn’t all of this just show how totally insecure Jonathan Capeheart is in his own skin and of his own position?

I mean, seriously, why the fvck should he or anyone else care about whether I or another person ‘accepts’ and ‘approves’ of them or their choices?

Do whatever you want, as consenting adults, in your own bedroom and leave the rest of us out of the societal ménage à trois.

BTW: The first kiss wasn’t really the issue with me. It was the smushing cake in each other’s faces during the NFL Draft. That is something that I’m prepared to see at weddings, but have no interest in watching it during a sporting event. Also, I warned my ex-husband before our wedding that, if he even tried to rub cake in my face or on my mouth, I would leave the reception. Period. Story. End of. So, yeah, I’m that ‘intolerant.’

In fact you usually are.

slickwillie2001 on May 14, 2014 at 9:01 PM

Ok. What was the last thing I was wrong about? Since I am usually wrong I am sure the examples are many. Pick one.

I’ll see you on the QOTD, Mr. Wilde. :) I’ve got to find my bottle of absinthe and my absinthe spoons and tongs. :)

thatsafactjack on May 14, 2014 at 9:35 PM

It feels very weird … I get the feeling sometimes … But I could be wrong.

You need to send her a picture of yourself so she doesn’t forget.

I expect the Rams will change their artwork from the head of the ram to the back end.

slickwillie2001 on May 14, 2014 at 9:19 PM

Oh man, you know what just occurred to me?

During the mating season, what do rams do?

They butt.

Dolce Far Niente on May 14, 2014 at 9:53 PM

I can’t help get a picture of Dr. Smith as the ultimate liberal, with the Robot as the constitution, with flailing arms, shouting “Danger, Will Robinson, danger!”

I would never say that all homosexuals are child molesters, but the homosexual community, as whole, seems intent on molesting my first amendment rights.

RockinRickOwen on May 14, 2014 at 10:05 PM

This guy is right. I disagree with his views but he is right in that he will win this argument every single time.

The gilled one is short on tolerance with Mary Katharine for not initially putting up a photo to go with the post. Tape her mouth shut like the girl in the photo Mary Katharine? Please.

Bmore on May 14, 2014 at 10:22 PM

To claim that you find gay people kissing who they love to be the most disgusting ever and then to claim you don’t hate gay people is so obviously a lie that of course pro-gay side is going to win. Why not just admit that you hate gays? Honesty is the best policy.

You really should add this to every comment you make.
