I used to say, "the only thing I won't tolerate is intolerance!" Alas, as I have gotten older, the things I find intolerable have expanded. I was reminded of that recently. But, intolerance is still the one that tops my list.

That is why, I think, I continue to react so strongly to the utterances of Trump and his minions (that and their utter mendacity). The latest is Ken (Real Americans are "people coming from Europe") Cuccinelli. Recruited from under a rock, he displays his true nature. He's not even legally in his "acting" position.

Wasn't it Karl Popper who said that the intolerant are marvelously good at leveraging the machinery of tolerance to destroy tolerance, and that as a result, we are not required to tolerate the intolerant?

No Conservatives, I don't have to tolerate your intolerable behavior. That's a straw man that YOU built. smile
