In progressive communities across America, wear a MAGA cap and get beat up, thrown out of restaurants, or otherwise harassed. The practitioners of tolerance have decided they must be intolerant of intolerance. The problem, of course, is that anything they do not like is deemed intolerant in the same way anything they oppose is racist.
Evil preaches tolerance until it is dominant and then it seeks to silence good. I first heard Philadelphia Archbishop Charles J. Chaput say that and it holds true and is more visibly demonstrated every day.
Progressives insist now that anyone with political views they abhor can be refused service and chased from restaurants, but you Christian bigots sure better provide them goods and services. Or else.
They insist on doxxing or otherwise revealing contact information for their political opponents and even government employees so those opponents can be harassed. They rally mobs to show up at businesses to harass, shutdown, or otherwise vandalize those businesses. They beat up journalists in the street. They weaponize political giving disclosures to harass and punish anyone who supports a cause they oppose. They enlist corporate America to help them.
Their progressive friends in the press justify it, excuse it, or refuse to cover it lest anyone find out. They do their best to make the un-woke seem like the intolerant bad guy who deserved what he got.
Evil in on the rise. Progressive, secular, woke culture takes a hard line against dissent and demands everyone either conform or shut up.
When muslim radicals invaded the offices of Charlie Hebdo to kill reporters and employees, they did so because they were offended by the publication’s depictions of Mohammed.
The radical, progressive left has yet to resort to killing. Give Antifa time, though. The progressive left increasingly is willing to use the power of the mob or the state to destroy the livelihood, reputation, future earnings, career, and business of anyone who does not bow down to their orthodoxy. They will chase their opponents from restaurants and roust them out of bed in the middle of the night to chants and harassment.
The media gives them comfort, cover, and collaboration.
This will not end well. Now, go bake that cake, bigot.
