“Tolerance” has become the supreme value for the politically correct. It trumps everything, including common sense. In order to be acceptable in our culture, we must tolerate — and even embrace, support, and pay for — almost any behavior or “choice.”
There are a few exceptions. We don’t need to tolerate things like school prayer, Christianity, and unborn babies. Oh, and intolerance. Being intolerant is the ultimate evil. Unless, of course, you’re being intolerant of intolerance. Because intolerance is so heinous that it warrants intolerance. Or something like that.
Yesterday the US ambassador to Libya and three other Americans were murdered at the US Consulate in Benghazi by Muslim extremists who were angry about a YouTube video mocking Islam’s Prophet Muhammad. President Obama called the attack “outrageous and shocking.” Then he spiraled into the twilight zone.
While the United States rejects efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others, we must all unequivocally oppose the kind of senseless violence that took the lives of these public servants.
We have a group of Muslim’s who believe that killing innocent people for unrelated acts they find offensive is a daily good deed. But according to Obama’s tolerance mantra, we can’t denigrate that religious belief.
Obama’s bottom line: don’t tolerate babies born alive after botched abortion attempts; do tolerate beliefs in killing some Americans when other Americans create mean videos.
