The left is full of delicious ironies and hypocrisy, one of which happens to center on the topic of freedom of speech and their favorite buzzword, “tolerance.”
Conservatives hear constant preaching from the left about how we’re nothing more than a basketful of hateful deplorables, and only liberals are loving, kind, and accepting of other’s point of view.
What they often fail to mention is the only thing they legitimately tolerate are others who share their own worldview. If you dare to think for yourself, you’re going to get an earful.
A good example of this mindset comes out of New York where a “free speech” bus was given an oh-so warm welcome to the Big Apple — by angry transgendered folk.
Can you smell all that “tolerance” and “acceptance?” Smells a lot like sewage, doesn’t it?
According to The Blaze:
A “Free Speech Bus” — a bright orange vehicle promoting opposition to transgender culture as it travels the eastern U.S. — was vandalized while passengers were inside the United Nations in New York City for an event Thursday.
Two people approached the bus — a promotion of the conservative National Organization for Marriage — and scratched it with a key, cracked its windows with a hammer and spray-painted graffiti on its side that read “trans rights now” and “trans liberation,” NOM president Brian Brown told USA Today.

The bus driver was with the vehicle, Brown told USA Today, and was tackled — but not hurt — by one of the vandals in an attempt to protect the bus.
“This is a hate crime,” Brown added in a letter posted to the NOM website, “and sadly, the way that those who pretend to preach ‘tolerance’ feel about opposing viewpoints.”
Brown made no bones to the paper about the message of the bus: “Boys are boys and girls are girls — it’s very simple. We don’t want men in girls restrooms. We don’t want schools and our law attempting to say that people are bigoted simply because they understand that there’s a difference between male and female.”
He added to USA Today that “if they thought that would silence us, they were totally wrong.”
Spray painting a bus and committing criminal acts to silence those you disagree with is an excellent way to demonstrate “tolerance,” isn’t it?
Conservatives tolerate liberals and allow them to freely express themselves without demanding their opinion be muzzled.
Did anyone ever dream that one day discussing why men shouldn’t be allowed in the women’s restroom would be the cause of so much hatred and vitriol?
