Demonstrating Tolerance

Just a few of the recent demonstrations from those who continually say that they are part of the party of tolerance and inclusiveness!

This is for all those conservative religious fanatics out there who think "their" religion is the cure all for everything.....Hey, wake up...It's a f*cking crutch you morons.

how did this crackwad ever get elected to office

Another Example Of A Conservative Idiot

These are 3 of the most recent example, yes there are those from the other political stripes who respond in kind.  Yet to see even those who don't use the language cheering the points being made with this language really does nothing to persuade!  It brow beats or shuts down conversation or debate.

    Most of this vitriol is intended to ridicule the ideas and policies of the Republican and Tea Parties, isn’t it? This isn’t like Citizens United, ideologies are not people. Tolerance is for people.

      I hate to burst your bubble but it does not mean I’m reading your postings it means I am turned off by them and don’t even read further than what is shown on the Explore page.

        You got to admit that he does get under the skin of conservatives. That’s what he intends to do. And it is working. You may not read his posts but others do and they sure get there feathers ruffled. He’s a jerk but he’s effective.

    The assumption that it’s ok to tolerate a person’s existence but, not their right to think for themselves or at least think things other than the things “we” find acceptable… is not the most logical I’ve seen.

    I also find some humor in the assumption that as long as it attracts some attention any behavior is acceptable… when it supports “our” views but, none other.

    Whatever it takes is fine for sworn enemies (it simply has to be because it works) but, aren’t we supposed to be countrymen & allies? Tolerance indeed.

    I find I’ve missed very little in my absence from the political forums & can see no reason to return… Howdy & Adios.

    thoughts.com is in general, a kinder, gentler blogging site. Apparently, you are naïve to what takes place on many other blogging sites. You may be upset and complain about these kinds of statements, but that is simply a sign of how out of touch you are within this environment. flamingmouth can attest to the fact that conversations can escalate to a level of vile and disgusting behavior. I’m not suggesting you’re wrong. I’m suggesting this may be a bit of an overreaction. Whether proper or improper, Delmarva’s remarks are not nearly at the level often seen on blogging sites. His remarks are nothing more than a reflection of his passion regarding the unfairness in our system for which one political party is primarily responsible. It so happens, there’s a growing number of people (literally millions of people) who also feel the Right no longer represents their best interests, and it is extremely frustrating to come across people such as yourself who defend the unfairness. We have such a we/they mentality in America and it wasn’t we, they people who created that. We, the people don’t have the kind of power necessary to manipulate the system in that manner. That unfairness stirs anger and that anger is gradually escalating as the unfairness escalates. This country was founded on the premise of tolerance and acceptance. Be careful what you wish for, for you help to perpetuate the anger by judging others, trying to impose your beliefs on others and promoting intolerance. Your attitude is exactly what is sponsored and promoted by those who control our government for the purpose of dividing Americans. Divide and conquer. It is that top tier that has caused the we/they attitude. They are the ones with all the power – power that we, the people never intended for them to have.

    calling bachmann a crackwad is relatively mild compared to the way conservative talkers treat liberals.How many times does she have to behave like a jackmoron before someone calls her out? Bachman is easily one of the most shameful persons ever to be elected to politics at any level

    This post is definitely in SEC’s wheelhouse. It’s about judgement of others. I’ve yet to see a post where SEC tries to suggest solutions to the problems of this democracy, other than to diminish the benefits of the US to everyone. The main idea is to carry on the duties of a ‘hall monitor’ to raise a lantern to find the weak points in people’s morality, so they can be convinced to give up the collective effort to improve the lives of each other.
    .
    The idea here is that those few who continually try to convince the nation – against providing social insurance to make the lives of the majority easier – are morally better because they are able to take care of themselves. It’s a form of self-flattery that lasts only as long as circumstance smiles. It’s a form of insanity in a democracy, as a wise majority will always vote in its own interests, despite attempts of the royalty.

    Funny how many people are pissed about getting their actions judged when they feel 100% entitled to judge another’s thoughts & opinions. “Judge not lest ye be Judged” it’s not so much a religious edict as a syllogism.

      Yes it is funny and not that humorous.

      Good point Munkeyman …
      “syl·lo·gism

      logical argument involving three propositions: a formal deductive argument made up of a major premise, a minor premise, and a conclusion. An example is, “All birds have feathers, penguins are birds, therefore penguins have feathers.” deductive reasoning: reasoning from the general to the specific example of deduction: an example of deductive reasoning

      .
      That clearly explains the posts that have no solution, just defining people with no useful result. Thus, shrinking people into a neat definition is worthy of admonition not to judge.

    Tolerance is a very nice factor amongst the human beings. Those kinds of people, who are knowing the value of the hiring a professional resume writer tolerance and also acting with others with these factors, are also never getting the trouble on their lives about this side.
