Progressives are all about tolerance and inclusion and a rainbow of variety whenever it suits their cultural Marxist agenda, but when it comes to tolerating differing political opinions, their exclusion is as absolutist as the French monarchy.
In an op-ed today hyperbolically titled "The Death of Compassion," race-baiting New York Times columnist Charles M. Blow declared that "Compassionate conservatism is dead; Trump and his band of backward-thinking devotees killed it." Trump "is a cancer on this country," he states, "devoid of compassion," and therefore "we must be closed to compromise."
If that sounds a little harsh, don't try to reason with him about it. "No one need try to convince me otherwise. The effort is futile; my conviction is absolute. This is a culture war in which truth is the weapon, righteousness the flag and passion the fuel."
And don't try to make an appeal to the notion of reaching across the political aisle, either. "I have no patience for liberal talk of reaching out to Trump voters," Blow continues. "There is no more a compromise point with those who accept, promote and defend bigotry, misogyny and xenophobia than there is a designation of 'almost pregnant.'"
Blow might want to rethink that analogy, considering that it's the left that believes that pregnancy is a fluid concept. In any case, the hypocritical left, which pontificates about compassion while demonizing the right as irredeemably evil; which exploits minorities while denigrating the right as heartless racists; and which projects its own violence and hatred and intolerance on others, has no moral authority on the subject of compassion.
"Resistance" is the only way to deal with the President's agenda, the self-righteous Blow concludes. "Victory is the only acceptable outcome when freedom, equality and inclusion are at stake." Yeah, we saw what your version of "freedom, equality, and inclusion" looked like during eight years of former community organizer Barack Obama in the White House. So bring it on, Blow. We're mad as hell and we're not going to take it anymore.
