Aren't liberals supposed to be tolerant?

I caught two middle aged women trying to rip off my Bush/Cheney 2004 bumper sticker in the parking lot Monday.

As much as I oppose John Kerry, I would never consider vandalizing someone's property by tearing off their Kerry sticker.

Yes, those are bad people. They exist on both sides.

Tolerance has become a political tool, not an ideal.

Labeling someone "intolerant" is an act of intolerance in and of itself.




And, as ThatGuy points out, petty acts can be found on both sides of the isle.

I realize that it happens on both sides. At least us right-wing, conservative, war-mongering, rich, uncompassionate, Bible-thumping, republicans don't know any better. But peace-loving progressive liberals tearing off stickers...now that suprised me!

It's fairly easy to tear down straw men on both sides.

Maybe they are on a crusade to rid the world of bumper stickers. I don't blame them I find all bumper stickers to be wrong.

Idiots can rip off Bush *and* Kerry stickers, and do. Mature people don't do things like this.

I thought "compassionate conservatives" weren't supposed to fire people for having Kerry bumper stickers. goes both ways.

It's true that someone got fired for having a Kerry sticker on her car. In fact this happened in my state, Alabama, in another town called Decatur. The people who fired her are intolerant idiots. They should have let her alone with her political views, but they discriminated against Democratic voters and fired her for being one.

I'm a 'liberal', I suppose, and I'm intolerant.

There, I said it.

I just want to know what you said to them and what they did! That must have been kind of surreal!
