Of all the nonsense liberal slogans and chants from the prior election, “Love Trumps Hate” has to have been the dumbest. Liberals told us that Trump was a racist, sexist, mysogynistic, homophobe…. and couldn’t exactly explain why. Because he opposes illegal immigration? So do most legal immigrants. For those in the media, Trump being just as mean to some women as he is to some men qualified as “sexism” (I’d say equal treatment is more like it).
And is the slogan supposed to imply that Hillary Clinton ran on a campaign of love? That’s hilariously naive.
Despite how much they claim to champion tolerance, they’re just about the least tolerant people out there when it comes to tolerating a diversity of ideas. According to a recent poll:
Nearly one-quarter (24%) of Democrats say they blocked, unfriended, or stopped following someone on social media after the election because of their political posts on social media. Fewer than one in ten Republicans (9%) and independents (9%) report eliminating people from their social media circle. Political liberals are also far more likely than conservatives to say they removed someone from their social media circle due to what they shared online (28% vs. 8%, respectively).
Eleven percent of moderates say they blocked, unfollowed, or unfriended someone due to what they posted online…Only five percent of Americans say they are planning on spending less time with certain family members because of their political views. Democrats, however, are five times more likely than Republicans to say they are trying to avoid certain family members due to their political views (10% vs. 2%, respectively). The pattern among political independents mirrors the general population.
Here’s the breakdown in chart form:
Who can blame them? If liberals didn’t have double standards, they wouldn’t have any standards at all!
