The Tolerant Liberal Reaction

The Tolerant Liberal Reaction, by Francis Turner, a Muslim, woman, and immigrant who voted for Trump.

Most of my online friends and acquaintances who aren’t liberals have spent the last few days having what one called a “schadenboner”. …

The mass freak out by the “liberal”/”progressive” part of the (social) media world has been hilarious to watch for the most part. …

There are the ones who show their tolerance by hoping that random strangers are burned to death, … or who actually riot, attack pets or deface property. And there are numerous threats to kill President Elect Trump or suggesting violent revolution.

The liberal reaction reeks of projection and hypocrisy.

This and the fear-mongering about Trump’s intentions towards various potentially oppressed minorities is in strong contrast to the behavior of McCain and Romney supporters in the last two elections. It is also highly reminiscent of the fear-mongering about racist attacks in the UK after the Brexit vote. …

[T]he evidence seems pretty strong that the liberals are projecting their own fears, hate and intolerance onto their opponents rather than basing it on actual facts. For a group who often claim to be evidence and science based, even if they mostly didn’t actually study in a STEM field, this is pretty pathetic.
