    …The group acknowledged their error in having Shapiro as a sponsor and issued an apology because of his attendance.

    Because Shapiro was there, one of the attendees expressed concern that they would not be safe while attending the event. They tweeted: “Hey @PodcastMovement what the f***. As a trans person, as a queer person, as someone with a uterus, this does not make me feel welcome. This does not make me feel comfortable.”

    With the apparent exception that this visitor posed no threat, despite their best efforts, they were unable to keep their cool and accept the possibility that a conservative Republican would also be present at the podcast conference. They were not in any danger at all; rather, they were insulted by the existence of variety in the form of someone who holds a different opinion than they do. Strange, since the Left is always preaching about how vital variety is to progress. But when it comes down to it, lefties have repeatedly shown that they don’t mean what they say…

    he sheer intolerance of diversity of thought and belief of the left is well known to us. This is simply the latest example of it. The double standards described here are priceless. They show the extent the secular progressive left is willing to go in order to shut conservatives up and silence us.

    Tolerance liberals being intolerant was proven long before this.

    Anytime a conservative is scheduled to speak at a college there is a riot.

    More then that, it shows the weakness and decay of a society that we have. "As a blank, blank, blank I'm totally uncomfortable". We've raised a generation of intellectually deficient people(who somehow have degrees, don't ask) that believe the world is based around their comfort. Not only is it NOT based on that, but it's never been based on that. Imagine these same individuals signing up for military service. Will they actually tell their commanders "I'm uncomfortable going out in the field against Al-Qaeda, etc."

    We're screwed, totally and completely screwed.

    The right is SOooo tolerant of Liberals ... well ... maybe not ... not even a little bit. And "trending politics" is at the top of the rightie intolerant list.

    Sadly BOTH sides are intolerant of each other. Anyone who says otherwise is lying. Just look in every thread on this site…there are endless posts of both sides bashing each other’s viewpoints.

    This is the truth of it, which always makes these "conservatives are victims of the meanie liberals" threads and posts just plain laughable. People on both sides dish it out, and anyone making any kind of grand claims about which side is "better" is fooling themselves at best or are just plain and totally dishonest at worst.

    Threads like this are just masturbation for those enamored with their own perceived righteousness and martyrdom.

    Certain people on this forum sure do love to play up the 'victim' card.

    Liberals are the intolerant ones. They are emotional snowflakes who cannot handle the stress of being exposed to opposing points of view no matter the topic.

    We are far more tolerant than the left is. As to the source, attacking it does not a thing to dispute the actual content of the thread and the link.

    Well this is a political discussion site with all sides present so flash points here are to be expected. This is an Internet forum where we are largely an anonymous to each other. We should expect different when we are in person at school, church, work, or a community event and interact.

    None of what you said changes the fact that BOTH sides are intolerant towards each others viewpoints...whether on the internet or in person

    The left stopped using the word intolerant when it was shown they are they most intolerant people on the planet. And the left, of course, is offended by everything they disagree with. This intolerant garbanzo (racist and anti Semite?) doesn't want to be around Shapiro because he makes him feel unwelcome and uncomfortable. How does he think little kids feel when teachers make them feel unwelcome and uncomfortable because of the color of their skin or economic status? Once again, it's all about feelings to the intolerant left who are offended by literally everything. And over in the Current Events forum there's a person in the Texas drag queen/groomer thread saying it's conservatives who are offended by everything. Hey libs, guess what? We're not offended by the OK sign, you are, and it faux offense and outrage because it was all made up to show how the left is offended by everything.

    Ahh yes, we all know about the INTOLERANT "party of tolerance" all too well.
    Ben Shapiro likes to rip liberal talking points to shreds so it makes sense they don't want him there. Ben gets too much credit for this stuff IMO because ripping liberal talking points is one of the easiest thing in the world.
    here's an example:
    Should 3 year olds be able to get sex changes?
    See? we all know the obvious answer
    Like I said, EASY

    I’ve explained the Paradox of Tolerance a handful of times around here. I suspect people who say “So much for the tolerant left” are incapable of understanding the idea.

    If the fanatical left was tolerant of the right they wouldn't be fanatical, would they? Being intolerant of opposing views is kind of the definition of fanatic. The fanatic right is just as bad towards the left. The left and right are concerned about their ideology, not what is good for the country.

    Ben Shapiro? Nahh, he's in a class by himself and right into grifting his gullible many marks. Victim mentality and grievance sells to the Trump base. The left has less folk that spew radicalization but I guess that will progress since every action has an equal and opposite reaction, time being the sole variable..

    So, okay, philosophy hat time. It's true that no one is 100% tolerant of anything, and in fact I've long held the position that tolerance=putting up with someone and when you put up with someone long enough, you eventually grow to hate them. So tolerance is far beneath acceptance, and it was nothing to ever truly brag about. IE: No one tolerates murderers, arsonists and thieves because of the damage that they cause.

    Here, people point out the hypocrisy because what liberals aren't tolerant of, are the same things that conservatives are EXPECTED to be tolerant of. In reality, Liberals are not tolerant of opposite views. In reality, Liberals aren't tolerant of those who aren't in their camp. They'll only 'tolerate' people so far as they can actually use them(for votes.)

    And this has now become true whether you're a minority or a majority. Now, this is also parcel of human nature: For us to tolerate something, we have to get something out of it but the true chief complaint is that Liberals should be real with themselves. Don't act as though they give blanket tolerance, if they're not serious about that.

    Don’t you think that would vary wildly on what “opposite views” we're talking about?

    For instance, I am a socialist. I think that would be the best political and economic system for America’s future. I’m tolerant of people who disagree and believe that capitalism is better.

    On the other hand, I believe that LGBTQ couples should have all the same rights as heterosexual couples. I’m intolerant of people who believe that they shouldn’t.

    There’s a lot of things that I tolerate. I do not, however tolerate that which I feels threatens myself and others.

    Does that make sense?

    Makes perfect sense. Not exactly fitting with this particular topic though.

    Using your language, what threat did Shapiro pose? This is the crux of where the 'intolerant' accusations come from towards the left. I think we all agree Shapiro posed no threat whatsoever. They hate him and so they didn't want him there, that's intolerance of the highest order. It's that type of intolerance that the left practices and is why the right calls them out on it so often. Shapiro actively goes to places where he knows the vast majority will disagree with him just to have discussions with them. If he was intolerant, he wouldn't do that.

    Irrational partisan nonsense.

    Shapiro constantly goes, to engage in discussion, to places where he knows the vast majority will disagree with him. That's not a person who is intolerant of those he disagrees with.

    The left hates him so they don't want him anywhere near them....that's intolerance and the left is criticized for it and they'll continue to be criticized for it because it puts on full display their hypocrisy (which, sadly, they're not smart enough to see).

    I’m having a conversation with @AmericanNationalist right now. The topic of the OP very loosely relates at this point.
