My liberal friend

I came across an article entitled "My Liberal Friend," and it was so well-written and to the point about the differences between American values and leftist-socialist values, that I wanted to mention it here and encourage anyone with an open mind to read it.

For example, on liberal "tolerance," Nancy Morgan writes that her friend will allow no dissent:
Though conservatives have yet to be included under the leftist’s much vaunted ‘tolerance’ and ‘multicultural’ umbrellas, Pam has decided that she will tolerate her renegade friend, as long as that friend doesn’t publicly air any conservative views. Which is becoming a problem for our friendship.
And of course her friend thinks that conservative ideas are based on hate, which any sane person knows is not the truth.
Pam wastes no time analyzing my weekly articles as being motivated solely by hate and 'lacking in compassion.' She has adopted the proven tactic of continually forcing me to proving a negative. And I just don't want to do that anymore, especially since I have lost respect for her.
With great regret, I realize Pam has become like so many of her fellow leftists. Willing to defend to the death leftists opinions (that are formed by others) and dismissing out of hand any facts to the contrary. If I don't agree with her, why, there must be something wrong with me. This attitude is not conducive to friendship.

As soon as I read the title, I knew it was BS. You ain't got a liberal friend. Too bad. We got truth, to lay upon ya.

And so did you read the article that I reference?

If not, it shows how you stereotype conservatives, which is what bigots do.

You don't really know anything about my personal life, which reinforces my suspicison that you do stereotype conservatives, libertarians and even independents.

Maybe I should have mentioned my sister, who is a registered Democrat who thinks Republicans are racist. Other than our difference in politics, which she really knows little about, we are good friends.

Definition of bigot: a person obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices; especially : one who regards or treats the members of a group (as a racial or ethnic group) with hatred and intolerance

Most (not all) liberals fall into this category. How can we help you see this more clearly?
