A Tribute to Leftist Tolerance in the 2016 Election

Updated on January 5, 2017

A constitutional conservative, taking on the Left with common sense, armed with truth, critical thought, and the principles of the Founders.

In this final installment of tributes to the 2016 election, we take a look at tolerance, you know something that liberals always preach, but seldom practice. Especially is the case when it is inconvenient to the narrative or socialist agenda.

But before getting too ahead of myself, I want to recognize a few personal accomplishments that were achieved during this election. I am purely ecstatic by the fact that a social studies teacher, who is a friend of mine, and I were able to not only successfully predict the outcome of this election and Brexit, but the majority of events as they transpire, with far greater accuracy than the “professional” commentators and “journalists.”

From what candidate would drop out next, Brexit, Bernie having the rug ripped out from under him, and even down to Pennsylvania being the state to determine it all, we were on fire (not gloating... but it's hard when you give the established powers that be a run for their money. Also, it tends to irritate tantruming leftists).

But successful predictions and tacking aside, I have gathered my three personal favorite quotes demonstrating the intolerant left, complete with commentary from yours truly. Please note, any provided excerpt is in its original, and often raw, unaltered form (not a reflection of my spelling or grimmer skills).

As with my other tributes (Liberal Arrogance & Self-Righteous RINOs) they are all anonymous, as to not upset or embarrass any that are already "suffering" with the reality of Trump's upcoming inauguration. With that said, let's take a look at the intolerance from the "ideology of tolerance":

Source

"Hillary is for us little folk and that should carry her to president and most wives will make husband vote for her… Conservatives are selfish and want corporations to have power.”

First of all, what?! Given all the leaks and everything else we know about the Clintons, how can anyone actually believe that Hillary has ever been for the "little folk?" Mrs. Clinton has done little during her tenure as Secretary of State or the 30 years spent in public office to provide a contrasting perspective (unless engaging in some serious sugarcoating), through a career of self-enrichment and corruption.

Saying she is for the little person is on par with saying Fidel Castro was a true humanitarian (oh wait, the left did that too...). Not only did I call out this little progressive talking point, which clearly failed to gain any traction among Clinton's plethora of scandals, but was fully vindicated by the Rust Belt's working class (typically blue states) turning out for the Donald. This person could surely use some educating, and should probably start with Clinton Cash.

Secondly, what kind of person lets their spouse dictate who they’re voting for? Are we not a society of free thought, critical thinking, and individual success (although some of the questionable collective incoherence I've heard this election says otherwise...). Who let's their spouse tell them who to vote for? If that's not insulting enough for your intelligence, this individual also made the case for women to vote for Hillary because of their anatomy, so no surprise there. Note, this person also claims to be Republican (yeah, sure...).

Source

"The racist retoric I am reading is alarming. 'Drain the swamp,' 'philly fraud we hear it loud and clear."

And no, I didn't misspell "retoric" (rhetoric) any more than I am responsible for the other heinous grammatical errors found here. This is pulled directly from their post, and hilarious enough, these errors and the straw-grasping statement itself were made by a teacher no less. Although "Philly fraud" is quite the stretch to arrive at an association with skin color (what can I say, it's pretty clear Democrats have to look at everything through a divisive lens, but I'm just not wired to think that way), "drain the swamp," racist?

So even from an incredibly limited liberal perspective on any view that opposes their own, or the notion that this was somehow just misquoted to meet their own political agenda, can anyone explain how either of those two statements are racist.

Source

As I was the one they were quoting (and horribly construed at that) on, "Philly fraud," allow me to clear up any misconceptions. Anyone who is familiar with some of my other election pieces has probably already read that there were reports and documented evidence of fraud in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (my home state), not just this election, but also in 2012. Whether it was the ballot box pulled by the inspection commissioner that had votes already cast for Clinton prior to the station opening its doors, Black Panther intimidation, or last election's incredibly shameless display by Democrats where President Obama somehow miraculously received 110% voter turnout, I think it's safe to say there's absolutely nothing inherently racist with the term, "Philly fraud" (maybe I should just be more direct next time and say "Democrat fraud..." But that would probably be racially charged somehow too...").

"Drain the swamp..." Really? We are talking about corrupt elitists occupying Washington DC, who have made countless promises and failed to deliver. The "swamp" is occupied by both parties, made up of all races, sexes, religious beliefs, etc, and implying that such a phrase is somehow bigoted is a pathetic (and simplistic at that) attempt to play on peoples' emotions (this was made on election day after all). It fails all around and demonstrates this person's inability to make a coherent argument.

Pretty bad when even John Stewart knows what's up...

“Why anyone would even consider voting for this guy unless of course they embody his same values, and then well, enough said...”

Classic liberal race card tactic, as they lack facts or evidence to support their argument. Then when pushed, the back peddling began, followed by assertions that they were in no way implying that I in particular was a racist, but rather just, "a broader assessment of most Trump supporters" (hmmm... not quite sure what is worse, as grouping people together is in no way intolerant, right?).

Most astounding is that this person is a family member. Resorting to name calling, labeling, belittling, and arguing in the name of politics is an ineffective method of getting your point across, especially when attacking a relative because you disagree with their point of view. Also, this is yet another teacher that demonstrates a complete lack of critical thought and resorts to identity politics (shameful), as opposed to articulating valid points. You should have seen the poor excuse for defending and making a case for Hillary Clinton that followed (no wonder she lost...).

      Lovemychris, all of that ranting above shows me a few things:

      - you flip on your views when it's convenient to your narrative (as in Russia)

      - you buy into absolutely everything the leftist media outlets tell you, even the most radical ones (911 truthers)

      - you believing Romney supporters created the Benghazi mess shows a dangerously disconnected way of thinking, as you are so inclined to push the liberal narrative that you'll ignore reality and facts (clearly on Obama and Clinton's watch), not a Republicans... Get real!

      - every single point I highlighted so far is even more laughably ridiculous when you go on to say Hillary Clinton's emails, which you can read reports on and are clear major infraction of US law, are "propaganda" (I removed the swearing because it's unnecessary and adds nothing)

      If you take nothing else away from my response, please provide an explanation of this little nonsensical argument of your's:

      "liberty and justice for all.....hasnt happened yet"

      Who does not have liberty or justice in this country? I would love to know who you're trying to victimize.

      ooops!

      Yes Dear 8 months ago from Cape Cod, USA

      you are so far latched to the message, you cant think straight, imo....as i used to be. when i read some of my back comments, its all pro russia: "putins a good guy," "he' fighting the neo-con cabal"...and its because you can make a point for it! you can make a point for anything at all. and i realize what a long master plan this has been. see, i read a lot of rt. press tv, all these things that are banned in usa. and i was ripe for it after the bush/cheney years. and i read rense.com., which was always an equal opportunity basher. but something changed in alterland.

      started at rense. someone tried to kill him, after that, he became a trump groupie. then, i learn that rather than being a true anti establishment vehicle, rt is state owned tv! ....ive been had. i mean, a lot of that info is truthful, but it has an anti american slant. so, if you think usa is devil, while russia is a saint....you have bought the propaganda wholesale.

      anyway, after seeing pics of flynn and stein at rt event, reading steins portfolio...green, my ass! and that general flynn, who believes pizza gate, screams "lock her up", works for turkey and dines with vladimir putin, i said this gd rt pulled my strings.

      benghzai, i believe the other conspiracy, not yours. i think it was done by right wing forces to help romney win. other reasons, of course, but that being one.patreus is the culprit in my view. hes bilderberg now, heads a global corp...the "elite" you people hate, right?

      e mails...thats another example of bullshit propaganda. just what do you think would have been in rnc or trumps campaign manager emails? you dont think it would have turned voters off? that man wont even release his tax returns for christ sakes! that was a direct foreign hit at hillary clinton, and you all are fine with it, beause it helps your guy.

      using a private server...if its a crime, its a brand new one. and if you prosecute her, what about chaffetts, gowdy, rice, powell, etc.

      oh, and speaking of dnc, they ran private server in white house and deleted 22 million emails....wasnt a crime, then?

      goh..as powell said, that was a stupid witch hunt, and a republican on the committee admitted it was only to damage clinton.

      anyway, i believe there IS a vast right wing out there, working together to gain power.

      i believe they did 9/11, and i believe they stole this election....and putin, stein, sanders did their part, but so did operatives who have remained hidden.

      read greg palast. its really simple dirty tricks.

      i will never co sign this presidency, and despite what all of you character assasinating tea party people say, i remain true to the ideals we live under:

      liberty and justice for all.....hasnt happened yet, and il trumpo/gop is a huge setback.

      IMO

      So you don't believe that Hillary compromised classified information (proven, regardless of whether she meant to or not - clearly broke the law under US criminal code) or that the Obama administration let our ppl die in Benghazi b/c it didn't fit the leftist narrative and then shamelessly blamed it on a video, but George Bush pulled off the greatest hoax in world history for oil? Now that's pure ridiculousness...

      Not conspiracy, try just inconvenient truths to the left.

      You sound like every other Cult of Obama follower latching right onto Breitbart and Bannon. I suppose you think all Trump supporters are racist, Breitbart is a front for the KKK and Bannon is an anti-semite, right?

      Labeling things is a sad and small-minded approach of identity politics, something the left relies on, b/c they cannot formulate successful arguments, based in reality.

      yes. alt right. finally, a name for it. the mean, nasty deranged way of dealing in the political world. and yes, im a 9/11 truther from day one. but guess what i dont believe? birtherism, benghazi, e-mails...all the alt right conspiracies.

      this is what i mean. even conspiracy theories are political.and its your boy vlad to blame, and his patsy trump. read the breitbart stuff to know what i mean. you know, from bannon, the leninist. the one advising your president.

      "alt right" - nice establishment talking point label that was recently invented to attempt derailing the emerging populous movement.

      You believe 911 was actually a conspiracy? That must have been the most perfectly executed and sold fallacy of all time, right? Give me a break...

      My own take on fake news has just dropped, so feel free to give your "interesting" take...

    • lovemychris profile image

      Yes Dear 8 months ago from Cape Cod, USA

      i wrote my own in 2010. "9/11, 2001." im no piker when it comes to conspiracy. i just dont buy the alt right ones....altho i did for a very long time....its been a realization that much of what i took as alternative media was anything but. rt, to be exact. and rense.com. in fact, im quite sure what you consider to be fake news will be truth to me. and vice versa. its all politics, all of it.

      If you're gonna try throwing out conspiracy there, try to get it right. Ted Cruz's dad is the one I believe they accused of killing Kennedy... Nice try though lovemychris.

      I have an article dropping on Fake News, so stay tuned, especially as you're so obsessed with conspiracy and such a big fan of mine ;)

      Good points Wba. This is now on full display with how they approached Sen Sessions' hearing the other day and their willingness to push false narratives, through leftist outlets like CNN and Buzzfeed publishing fake news (you know the thing they cannot stop complaining about...).

      You provide great examples of liberal ignorance and intolerance. And why shouldn't the illiberal liberals be intolerant, they advocate the use of government force to accomplish all their goals.

      Many of them despise freedom of speech unless its to spew obscenities or hatred for America. Their preferred method of political discourse is to smear their opponents with accusations in order to silence any opinion but their own!

      Hello, Trump got more votes w/ hispanics, blacks, etc that the previous 2 Republican candidates, so nice talking point. But let me educate you once more, this election was about radical wannabe dictator's ,Obama's failed policies destroying the middle class (pretty much gone after 8 years of fantasy land leftist reconstruction) and working America getting taken b/c of the unaffordable care act.

      If you can't see this election was purely about economic issues and security, you were left behind with the looney liberal talking points, as only ideologues continue to spread the lies.... Open your eyes.

    • lovemychris profile image

      Yes Dear 8 months ago from Cape Cod, USA

      umm hello.

      this election was ABOUT identity and race!

      white race, white identity, and degrading of the female.

      whether u can admit it, or see it, wont change it.

      the world is passing you by. and you will languish in what was, forever.

      we have already moved on. catch up, or slow down the process.

      either way, its happening

      Care to verify your vagueness Saxuary, with something to support your claims? Just saying it does not make it true. The corrupt left elitists have more than proven themselves this past year.

      stop fooling yourself Lovemychris, Liberals have proven to be far more hypocritically intolerant than any other political ideology. Even your previous comment attributes to this claim, as you turn every conversation into identity politics and race.

      But if you need more look to BLM, the mentally disabled young man that was beat up in Chicago for being white, views towards Christians and Jews vs Islam, the racist emails sent by the DNC, etc. Writing has been on the wall and using talking points won't disprove what everyone can now see clear as day.

      Time to join the rest of the adults down here in reality.

      my question was "scathing, ridiculous nonsense"?

      lol, it was a simple question. and valid, given sanders and tim ryan working to change the democrats back into the party of working class white men.

      sorry, that is not going to happen, and if it does, they will lose many. maybe they dont care, idk.

      the time for tolerance is over. its clear the opposition had zero tolerance for others.....what kind of fool would give it to them?

      Readmikenow, good luck with telling a leftist anything. I have encountered a few exceptions, but it's difficult to use common sense, reality, and reason, when they argue with "feelings."

      As far as the liberal Democratic leadership is concerned, didn't you know that tolerance and laws are meant for us commoners? "Do as I say, not as I do," mentality, you know...

      Lovemychris is a good little (although predictable) leftist, immediately seeing everything through those racial and divisively simplistic lens. You do realize that you only reinforce his points, right?

      " left wing minions jump through hoops to come up with more and more scathing, ridiculous nonsense to spew. " - she wrote right into this

      Wesman Todd Shaw - reflective of my own thoughts on the matter. The Democrats, once claiming to be the champion of the working man and middle class, has become a collection of corrupt coastal elitists, the highly uniformed lackeys that blindly follow them, and social justice warriors. The middle class (all but destroyed under Obama), blue collar workers, and even union members fled them in droves this election. Look no further than the Rust Belt for proof.

      They now are lost in the woods, blaming everyone else for their embarrassingly failed candidate, struggling with a branding and image problem. Doubling down with Pelosi and continuing to pass the blame only further cements their disconnect, except with the most blissfully ignorant of misinformed...

      I agree. Liberal hypocrisy is so blatant. Someone once told me "Don't put a standard on me that you yourself can't meet." I've said that to liberals and it's like talking to people in the deepest levels of denial. I have found that liberals preach tolerance when things are easy. When they have to live by what they preach, they get very confused.

      Every single day since the election I have enjoyed watching left wing minions jump through hoops to come up with more and more scathing, ridiculous nonsense to spew. Everything the democratic party claims to stand for these days is nothing more than a feint. I hope the party dies out completely. They need a new party which stands for what democrats stood for a few decades ago.
