Why Do Liberals Throw Things at Conservatives
Over at The American Spectator, Aaron Goldstein asks this question and then gives a concise summary of the situation. His concluding paragraph is golden:
But why do liberals throw things at conservatives? Because liberals cannot bear to hear impure thoughts. They cannot countenance opinion that differs from their own. People who think differently from them must be subject to humiliation in the name of tolerance. Of course if liberals were really tolerant then they would be curious enough to ask questions of conservatives. Tough questions perhaps but questions that would give the conservative the room necessary to reply. Liberals will tell you that they welcome opposing views provided that such views not make their presence known. Alas, liberals wouldn’t know tolerance if it hit them in the face.
Alas, all too true, as the many examples cited in his essay prove. Go read the whole thing.
