When the exceptions become the liberals' rules.
iberals' version of "tolerance" is that you act, speak, and even think exactly as they say you should. Because, after all, liberals
think feel they know — better than anyone else, of course — how everyone else should act, speak, and even think in an "inclusive society." Excluded from that fascist totalitarian dictatorship so-called society, of course, is whomever or whatever liberals can't tolerate. The chief of which being real, individual freedom, as opposed to some collective perversion of it.
Thus, a character in a Hollywood movie can bed everything with two or more legs, use every four-letter word in the book in practically every conversation, and
think feel every corporation and cop is basically greedy and corrupt, and no one in the audience is allowed to be offended by any of it. But if he's holding a cigarette or eating a Happy Meal while doing it, that is an unacceptable influence on our nation's youth and shouldn't be tolerated.
"There's no place for Ronald McDonald or Joe Camel in our 'inclusive' society!" liberals shout.
- Behold San Francisco, the paradise of permissive sexual attitudes. The city council may welcome flowers in your hair, but they have just voted to ban "Happy Meal" toys unless the "happy" menu is low in fat and sodium, and includes fruits and vegetables.
Apparently, that villain Ronald McDonald has been leading a Vast Child-Fattening Conspiracy.
This is hardly the first step toward dietary dictates in San Francisco. In 2007, Mayor Gavin Newsom banned city-government use of bottled water, and this past summer, Newsom instituted a ban on sugary sodas in city vending machines. And not just sugary sodas, but sports drinks and even artificially sweetened water. The rule insists juice must be 100 percent fruit or vegetable juice with no added sweeteners, and machines should allow the choice of soy milk or rice milk.
Then there's the Big Apple, San Francisco's East Coast cousin, another hub of libertine behavior. New York City schools now regulate the types of foods that students may sell for fundraising inside the school: Acceptable products include Fiber One bars, Soy Crisps and Ayala's Herbal Water. To qualify as an approved item, a snack must meet 11 criteria developed by the city. All products must be in marked, single-serving packages with a maximum calorie count of 200. Artificial sweeteners like Splenda are banned. Less than 35 percent of the item's total calories may come from either total sugars or fat. Grain-based products must contain at least 2 grams of fiber.
After resistance to the city's ban on bake sales of homemade goodies, the city relented partially: Parents may sell cupcakes and cookies — but only once a month, and not in the school cafeteria....
Intolerance, thy name is liberal.
Labels: death of Freedom, fascist totalitarian liberals (BIRM), insane liberals (BIRM), more liberal hypocrisy, more liberal intolerance, socialist injustice, spread the misery around
