The Intolerance of Liberalism
I’m sitting here thinking more about the ideology of intolerance, the classic liberal. That intolerant teacher in North Carolina was a bully, telling her students that it was criminal to criticize Obama. You know, when you get right down to it, maybe one of the best ways to explain liberalism to the uninitiated is to simply say that it is intolerant. It’s a philosophy of “no.” It’s a philosophy of domination and “no,” and it’s not at all what people think it is.
It’s not open-mindedness. It’s not tolerance. It’s not good intentions. It’s not sweetness and light and love and all that. It’s a philosophy of “no.” It is intolerant. Socialism, fascism, communism, all forms of liberalism dictate behavior. You must conform. Individuals? Private businesses? You must conform to what they say. And if you don’t they’ll pass laws and regulations that force you to. And in order to have uniformity, there must be an enforcement mechanism, because people are not the same.
People don’t want the same things. They don’t believe the same things. But if you are going to have uniformity — which is what liberalism wants, ’cause that’s equality to them: Everybody being the same. Outcomes especially. Being the same. Nobody richer than anybody else. If you are to have that, you must have an enforcement mechanism that shuts down what? Creativity, choice, and innovation. You have to shut down all the things that differentiate people.
