The word “tolerance” is one that liberals really enjoy throwing around, often accusing anyone who hasn’t adopted their progressive worldview as being “intolerant.”
But as it turns out, some of the most “non-inclusive” people on the planet belong to the the left, as is clearly evident by their hatred for conservatives and any individual who might think differently on an issue than they do.
A good case in point would be this university instructor who got so angry with conservative students he took their phone and smashed it to bits.
via The Daily Wire:
Liberal “tolerance” was in the air at a one-year anti-Trump commemoration protest on Thursday at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. A triggered anti-Trump TA identified as Tariq Khan was arrested after allegedly assaulting conservative students present at the protest, seen in captured video throwing a punch and stealing one student’s cellphone, which he eventually smashed on the sidewalk.
According to Campus Reform, Khan is a PhD candidate and has taught courses like “Constructing Race in America” and “U.S. Gender History since 1877.” He’s also active with “anarchist and communist organizations including Black Rose Anarchist Federation and Antifa, in addition to working with the undergraduate socialist students.”
The protest was apparently some sort of symbolic act against the election of President Trump. In between the “f*** Donald Trump” chants, Khan gave an impassioned speech to impressionable students about resisting fascism in the White House and targeted conservative members of Turning Point USA (TPUSA) on campus who were mocking the inane protest.
Taking issue with Khan’s rhetoric, freshman and TPUSA member Joel Valdez shouted, “Don’t you have anything better to do? Don’t you have kids?”
This triggered Khan. The leftist is seen via cellphone video sprinting over to the students, getting in their faces and accusing them of “threatening” his “kids.”
The students ask how they “threatened” his kids, but were only met with more belligerence.
The TA continues to berate the students and at one point steals Valdez’s cellphone from his hands. After the students call the cops, Khan smashes the freshman’s phone, an iPhone 7 Plus valued at $700, on the sidewalk.
Kahn was arrested and is due to appear in court on criminal charges here soon.
Doesn’t that all just scream “tolerance” and “inclusivity?” What a great guy, right? Who wouldn’t want to adopt such a worldview and be so miserable?
You know, liberals are some of the most angry unpleasant people you’ll come across, and yet, they wonder why so many others reject their belief system?
Freedom of speech is something that just seems foreign to these folks. It’s like they can’t fathom a world where not everyone thinks the same things or believes the same things. Group think is an incredibly important part of their worldview, even though they’ll never admit that.
This professor was unhinged and he definitely needs to be punished in some way. Hopefully this will be a learning experience for the man and will teach him to value differing opinions instead of attempting to silence them.
