The progressive left HAS become exactly what they claimed to hate hate!

Comedian Jim Norton:

“You have become exactly [like] the conservative, religious book burners of the 40s and the 50s and the 60s. You are it!” he said.“You are the speech repressors, you are the hypersensitive ones, you are the ones who want people fired immediately, you are the ones calling for people’s jobs. You have become what you hated.”

Norton brought up a recent story out of Wellesley College where “hundreds” of outrage college students objected after a lifelike sculpture of a sleepwalking man in his underwear was erected on campus. Students ended up creating a petition to have it removed.

“Oh my god,” Hughes responded.“We are raising a nation of pu***es, we’ve been saying it for years.”

In another example, Oberlin College in Ohio and other colleges have considered putting “trigger warnings” in college reading materials so that students don’t get upset or offended about controversial material. The New York Times recently reported that the warnings have “ideological roots in feminist thought.”

In what way? Unlike you, I don't automatically adopt whatever crazy(democrap like) policy or program as my own just because the party endorses it.

Not at all. He's smart enough to realize that there is little or no difference between the two major parties. And ther is even a certain degree of evidence to indicate they are in cahoots with each other to protect their phoney baloney jobs. Whether it's the deomcrats in the senate, or the republicans in the house, congress has become useless. In great part because of people like you who simply vote the party line when they get to the polls. Brainwashed in to believing that voting for anything but a republican or democrat is a wasted vote. In reality, voting for democrats and republicans is the truly wasted vote. And anyone who votes for incumbents is even more

The intolerant left is mad as heII!

Don't Major in Intolerance:

"A liberal arts education must not be an education in the art of liberalism," former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg told an audience of Harvard graduates and their families today in his commencement speech, a barn-burning attack against progressive intolerance and a call for more ideological diversity in academia.

Bloomberg is one to talk. He is ever so tolerant, as long as you see it his way. Yes, he is ever so tolerant. Of his "progressive" values. Not so much for those who diagree with him. He is, at best, a very wealthy hypocrite.

Mars, the maker of M&M’s confirmed that it declined an order for custom candies from a knife advocacy group because of the word “knife.”

“MY M&M’s® made the decision to not print the customized order because it contained the word ‘knife,’ which is not in keeping with the fun, celebratory nature of our brand,” a company.

Do you think they will be sued like the baker who wouldn't make a wedding cake for a gay couple?

I don't know about that. If they are pro knife, it stands to reason they are anti gun and could be useful to the anti gin lobby.
