“I learned that very often the most intolerant and narrow-minded people are the ones who congratulate themselves on their tolerance and open-mindedness.” – Christopher Hitchens
As much as I cannot stand Christopher Hitchens, the above quote is accurate. It is a Liberal rule to tolerate everything except anything they don’t agree with. In reality, the Left tolerates nothing. If one defies a Leftist tenant, such as gay marriage, abortion, or amnesty, they become an enemy of the Liberal elite.
The Left pats themselves on the back for being the most wise and tolerant people, but the meaning of tolerance is completely lost on them. For example, according to Campus Reform:
“A pro-life student group at Central Michigan University (CMU) had a their pro-life display torn down and stolen last Wednesday, Campus Reform has learned. The CMU Students for Life (SFL) chapter, arranged a display which featured infant clothing hanging on a clothesline. One out of every four pieces of clothing featuring a red X to symbolize that a quarter of pregnancies end in abortion. The group discovered that the display was missing on Wednesday, and filed a report with campus police.“
Never would a pro-abortion display be torn down or stolen, and if it were to happen, it would become national news. MSNBC would have wall to wall coverage, putting on display the full hatred of the wicked conservatives who defiled a woman’s right to slaughter her child. Conservatives would be lashed for weeks in the national media. However, since the vandalized display was pro-life, it’s no big deal to Pravda.
Any time an issue of tolerance comes up, one need only imagine if the situation were reversed. If the situation were on the other hand, there is no question that there would be an uprising among the Liberal media elites, demanding answers. The Left despises the pro-life movement so fervently that even in the face of persecution, the depth of their indifference is staggering.
This is the test we must perform. If you are unsure whether or not the media is acting in a biased way, just flip the situation, or find a comparable time when the Left freaked out. You will surely find that the media is unendingly biased in favor of the Leftist agenda.
This story is just one more example in a long list of media bias. The government controls the media, and the media protects the government.
