Intolerance on the left
Republicans are often accused of racism, bigotry and intolerance. But believing we have a right to define and defend our borders is not racism. Believing that marriage is a religious institution reserved for one man and one woman is not bigotry. Fighting to save lives of unborn children is not intolerance.
The left feels if you express your religious beliefs, you're a bigot. But if you force a business to abandon its religion and cater to your desires, you are just exercising your civil rights. If you pray outside an abortion clinic, you are intolerant. If you block traffic, burn buildings or beat people you are just a frustrated protester.
The left and the Democrats have shown they are as bigoted, racist, and intolerant as anyone on the right or in the Republican Party. I don’t know if this will ever change. The country is more divided politically and racially than it has been in 50 years. President Obama was supposed to be the great uniter, but turned out to be the great igniter. It is not people on the right expressing a desire to blow up the White House with Obama in it. It is not white people asking for black cops to be killed. And it is not Republicans blocking traffic, destroying property and beating innocent people because their candidate lost nor have they ever acted this way.
