Conservatives, what are YOUR ASSESSMENTS of Liberals? Do you believe that Liberals has become more
extreme, even fanatical in their sociopolitical &/or socioeconomic stances? Why?
There has been a rise of the authoritarian left in the last few years, who say they want tolerance but are intolerant of all who disagree with their ever growing and changing list of requirements. Look at the no-platforming of classic feminists like Camille Pagalia for saying a man with breasts and a penis shouldn't get a woman's award for coming out as a woman, other classic feminists decrying a man who recently "transitioned" taking "best paid female CEO" slot after spending a lifetime as a man.
They say they are love and peace, then call to hate the haters, hate mob people online and in person to end their lives for pointing out contradictions or giving facts that contradict an official narrative.
They say they want everyone respected, but reflexively resort to name calling of -ist or -phobic if you disagree with them. They call everyone who disagrees with them ignorant, hence the statement that screaming at someone for not agreeing is "educating" them. (DItto the black girl who stopped a college student in the hallway for wearing dreadlocks and saying we should cut it off, saying I wasn't bullying him but educating him)
They also call themselves smart, hence the labeling of all who don't convert upon education being called stupid or crazy. They immediately label those who disagree as irrational or incapable of rationality, which is a lazy excuse not to debate the facts or points of view. And by smearing the other person, it gives them a sense of superiority while giving others a reason not to listen to the other's answers.
Then there is the new rise of violence in the name of peace, love and tolerance. See Ben Shapiro, Milo Yianapolis, Laura Southern, Trump supporters at San Jose physically assaulted for expressing conservative views. The authoritarian left says your speech is hate speech, equal to violence, so we are allowed to use fists, rocks, bottles of pee (on Laura Southern) against your words. They see their pure selves as so holy, none may hurt their feelings or challenge their world view, express a contrary view in public, it is a hateful evil act that they have the right to challenge by force. It is akin to Muslims claiming the right to kill critics of Islam (Charlie Hebdo, Theo Van Gogh, several poets in the Koran).
The authoritarian left is fascism in the name of feelings, but so out of touch with the reality of their actions they don't realize they are the violent extremists, betraying both "liberalism" and freedom.
