Growing Intolerance of the Tolerant...
It appears as if a portion of the "progressive" camp has become profoundly intolerant of dissent and critiques of their efforts to radically transform the United States. Of course there are some boorish protesters, but the majority are Americans will legitimate concerns and questions. I had hoped that the same "progressives" who so vigorously protested against GW Bush would be tolerant towards other protestors, even if they had different visions.
Here are a few examples of the growing intolerance:
Nancy Pelosi stated:
"I think they're AstroTurf. You be the judge. They're carrying swastikas and symbols like that to a town meeting on health care."--Nancy Pelosi on disruptive constituents, Aug. 5, 2009
According to Harry Reid, the Townhall protesters are "evil mongers."
And the Democratic National Committee produced an ad that labelled protesters as a "mob."
