I've noticed that so-called "tolerant" people are much more intolerant of intolerant people than "intolerant" people are intolerant of tolerant people.
 
Interesting, no?
 
Did you ever notice that it is always the polite and decent people of the world that seem to be required to be tolerant of impolite and indecent people? The peace and silence lovers must be tolerant of the loud obnoxious noise makers. The good people of the planet must be tolerant of the bad. The intelligent people must be tolerant of the ignorant.
 
The jerks of the world are never asked to be tolerant of kind people. The evil-doers are never asked to be tolerant of altruists.
 
"Tolerance" nowadays is just a new-fangled politically-correct term for allowing evil to have its way on the planet. I think it's time for a little more intolerance of evil. It's time for intolerance of ignorance. It's time for intolerance of selfish, hurtful, lying corruption.
 
It's time for the jerks of the world to cease being allowed to have their way.
