You just gave a very good description of political correctness.

Re: Tolerant liberals?

never thought i would see the day when our most historically vile hate groups demonstrate peacefully while our historical champions of tolerance are out there beating the crap out of people and destroying property.

WTF!

"The ecologist is continually having to look at the aspects of nature with which he is unfamiliar and perforce must be an amateur for much of his working time.... professionals may carp at omissions, misconstructions, or even downright errors in these pages. perhaps ultimately they may forgive them for the sake of the overall vision that only the amateur, or the ecologist, blithely sets out to experience."G.

Re: Tolerant liberals?

Speaking for myself only, I do not get my news from InfoWars, Alex Jones, Prison Planet, Facebook, Trump's twitter account, or even Fox News. I venture to as many left leaning sites as well as right leaning sites. I welcome different points of views and am not shy about having my views scrutinized and challenged. I don't need a safe place to shield me from other people's micro-aggressions, lol. I don't need puppy therapy or coloring books to reset my equilibrium, although I do like puppies.

As far as not trusting the media, here is one example among the countless examples I've seen over the years:



It's right now on the home page at Yahoo. Notice the photoshop job to make him look like a monster. No bias there at all. I also don't buy the narrative that Trump has a white power problem. The KKK supports him just like the New Black Panther Party supported Obama, and yet the same media that is blowing this story out of proportion has conveniently ignored the other story about Obama marching with the NBP Party or the club wielding NBP members who intimidated voters in front of polling stations. The media holds Republicans and conservatives to a far higher standard than they do liberals and Democrats, so it's not surprising that many voters didn't trust their reporting. They ignored the many anti-Trump articles from activists masquerading as journalists and who can blame them?

Anyone remember the magazine cover a photographer took of John McCain from the 2012 election? Here's one of the pictures they did to make him look sinister. Obama's picture showed him looking happy and statesmanlike, while McCain came across as dark and warlike.

This thing with the Alt-Right is another boogeyman that the media has created. Alt-Right, as far as I can tell, is a toothless paper tiger that has just emerged during this election, and the media would like for us to believe this group is some nefarious, influential conspiracy to push white supremacy to the forefront of our political landscape. The media and the left still haven't gotten the message from the silent majority, and I surmise they never will. They're too entrenched in identity politics and lack the self-awareness to see the rotting elements of their ideologies.
