Why Everything Progressives Pretend to Believe In Is Bullshit

from a post at Gates of Vienna, via Sergei Bourachaga

Here's what the British novelist Dorothy Sayers (1893-1957) had to say on the subject of tolerance:

In this world it is called Tolerance, but in hell it is called indifference, the sin that believes in nothing, cares for nothing, seeks to know nothing, interferes with nothing, enjoys nothing, hates nothing, finds purpose in nothing, lives for nothing, and remains alive because there is nothing for which it will die.

But, of course, that raaaaaaaacist, right?

Leaving aside for a moment that I sincerely wish that I had framed my contempt for this progressive meme so eloquently, if you take a look at the period during which the author lived, you will quickly realise that this "tolerance" nonsense has been going on for a long time.

Of course, progressives (and other varieties of Trotskyist neo-Marxists and Frankfurt-School addled post-Gramscians) still believe that anyone who challenges their nonsense is Hitler Cartman.
