It is amazing, no, it is actually depressing and disquieting, that there are people in our country who cannot abide those who have opinions or positions that are in opposition to theirs.
These people are typically found on the left flank of the political spectrum and are more commonly known as “leftists and liberals.”
If you question what a liberal or leftist considers an inviolate truth, you are quickly labeled with any number of malicious sobriquets. These are people who cannot or will not respect another person’s right to express an opinion, belief, or idea with which they don’t agree.
Racist, bigot, fascist, sexist, xenophobe, Islamophobe are a few of their favorite labels they have thrown around during and after the recent presidential campaign.
For example, if you happen to believe that it is a good thing to curtail the unlawful migration of hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants into our country, you are both a racist and a xenophobe.
If you demand that we create a more reliable system of vetting refugees and immigrants from areas of the world rife with radical Islamic terrorism, then you are an Islamophobe.
If you question or criticize the policies of our outgoing black president, you are a racist.
If you didn’t vote for Hillary Clinton for president, you must be a sexist.
If you voted for Donald Trump for president, then you must be all of the above.
Sadly, this is where our country is today.
Our nation is populated by millions of intolerant, whining, malicious, and hypersensitive people who have been indoctrinated by a profusion of like-minded educators, media pundits, and news organizations to despise anybody who happens to embrace the political philosophy of conservatism.
If you are a conservative and if you believe in the principles incorporated in the U.S.
