It occurred to me that the most intolerant groups of people have always been associated with the Democrat party and their secular socialist political machine.
But, it’s intolerance without judgement. These “progressives” pick and choose those that they actually do tolerate. This choice is not rational.
For example, leftists profess great tolerance for those that are mentally ill, and have worked for decades to eliminate residential treatment and re-integrate patients into communities. These patients are left to their own devices, and professionals assume that they will voluntarily comply with their medication dosing needs.
Democrats have been systematically intolerant of black for the majority of the existence of their party, depending upon and supporting slavery through the Civil War and reconstruction. Once they “woke” to the evils of suppressing blacks and discriminating against them, they became intolerant of other groups. Gun owners, for example. Without any rational judgement involved, they didn’t increase their tolerance of others in society, they transferred it to another group.
Progressive leftist tolerance of the mentally ill has had horrible unintended consequences ranging from homelessness to the destructive behavior of mass shooters. Psychopaths know how to manipulate progressives and everyone else. Since they are so charismatic, typical emotionally driven leftists will leave the psychopath alone, often encouraging them and becoming intolerant of anyone that would stop and contain such mentally ill people. When they become troublesome, leftists disengage, either doing their best to ignore the problem, or expecting someone else in authority to take responsibility for them. But leftists in government often don’t do their job or fulfill their obligation to society because there’s generally inadequate oversight in managing government employees.
Psychopaths start small, slowly testing the waters as they proceed to escalate their damage and domination of others. As children they torture insects, and then move up to puppy dogs and other pets. In school, they charm teachers while they organize bullying of peers that they perceive to be weak. As adolescents, they progress to add sexual abuse to their repertoire.
When you don’t detect and use force to control a psychopath, they will progressively become more and more violent and dangerous. But leftists that allow psychopaths to progress through school, work and life without any bounds or controls just encourage their violence to escalate. Doing nothing is the wrong response. So is preventing others from defending themselves. Thus we have supposed “gun free zones” which have been the massacre target of choice for America’s psychopaths.
Why do leftists routinely tolerate psychopaths? Why to leftists hate responsible citizens? Why do leftists routinely remove the effective means of self defense from law abiding citizens?
It’s intolerance without judgement. Driven by emotional demons more than rationality and responsibility, leftists expect others to solve the problems they’ve created through their politically correct education system, absentee parenting, lack of setting or enforcing limits to their children’s behavior, and destructive attempt to take down law enforcement when police eventually are forced to do the job, and stop violent criminals.
Now, we watch as one of the most intolerant tyrants to ever appear on the American political scene launches his campaign by working to eliminate responsible self defense against the monsters that leftist progressive tolerance has unleashed.
