Are "Liberals" who claim to be tolerant of others really highly intolerant of anyone who disagrees with them, or who thwarts their false claims or harmful agendas?

Here's an interesting report about a LIBERAL who questioned the accepted Lib PC viewpoint about Islam:

    I would have to say that a large number of self professed liberals are among the least tolerant when it comes to people who do not share their ideology. One only need venture into any left leaning forum and dare question a policy or a politician they support.

    Of course, this kind of behavior is hardly limited to liberals, it is just as common among conservatives. The only difference is the liberals are the ones who boast so loudly of their tolerance

    They think they know everything and they're smarter than the rest of us. The Liberal mantra is 'Do as I Say, NOT as I Do'.

    yes, almost all the time. I know they can piss off a conservative, (because they have pissed me off many times) but it usually takes a heck of a lot more to get a con to react as quickly and nasty like, compared to a liberal. Boy are they nasty....! http://images.sodahead.com/pr...

    The word "liberal" comes from the Latin word "Liberalis" which translates to "free." This is ironic because today's liberal in America fights against anything that would make an American free from oppressive government.

    Liberals are full of hate. They stand primarily for two things: homosexual behavior and abortion rights. Anything else is just group think.

    Liberals are intellectually lazy. They are not the truly educated. If they were, they wouldn't feel the need to go around telling everything how smart they are. Only they believe it. Conservatives do not.

    They put their ideology before thoughtful consideration of the truth. I think many of them are brainwashed by the liberal teachers and professors in our educational system. I pulled my kid out when his social studies teacher (grade 6) told the class that marriage is not meant to last for 10 or twenty years, or that gays have a right to marry, etc. He was eleven! I don't want him to deal with these issues, so he is in a private school now.

    If you watch the included clip, it is quite evident that thoughts and speech outside the liberal mindset are not welcome and prohibited.

    Liberals these days seem to want to jump right into bed with the Islamofacists. They apparently are too stupid to realize that the liberal mindset of their brand of canned ideology goes directly against most tenets of Islam.

    Only the mutual hatred of America and Americans provides the synergy necessary for shared end goals.

    I don't really consider myself a full fledged liberal because I do agree with numerous conservatives viewpoints...but I'm open to all thoughts as long as the information is factual and the back and forth does not throw insults. Unfortunately this isn't the case most times on SH. At the same time I will stand my ground with my own beliefs/viewpoints that some people find to be "lies" or "crap".

    I just said practically the same thing but in a different way, although I am a full fledged Conservative. However, I am certainly open to options, other ideas, new ways of seeing a subject.......etc.

    Neither party should be an immoveable object. Opposing opinions should be open for compromise.

    Perhaps you are a true Liberal, not one of the one-world-government commie-socialist types like Obama, Reid, etc. In that case, you should be 180 degrees away from them on many issues.

    Like how that explains DEMOCRAT Congressman getting the HIGHEST rating of ANYONE in Congress from NumbersUSA, an A minus, for his staunch opposition to illegal immigration. Whereas, Obama was rated an F minus, for trying to attract more job-stealing illegals here with amnesty, "free" healthcare and everything else, even college at taxpayer expense. See, for example:

    I was a registered Republican until 2007. I voted for Bush in his 1st term but not his 2nd. I consider myself a social democrat and a fiscal conservative. My views are based on research (always looking for facts or as close to factual as possible), common sense and upbringing as opposed to an ideology. I live in a large city so my world seems to be a little more exploratory then most.
