'The Tolerant Left'

“One thing you have to say about the Left: They never miss an opportunity to let the mask of hatred slip,” Michael Walsh writes at the Corner:

It’s practically Pavlovian; they are so invested in the myth of their own righteousness that their “tolerance” fetish goes right out the window whenever they suffer the slightest affront to their delusional notion of how the world works.Truly, these folks have the self-esteem of an abused pit bull. From the Iowa Republican:

A University of Iowa professor felt the need to reply to a blast email by the College Republicans on Monday morning. Ellen Lewin, a professor of Anthropology and Gender, Women’s & Sexuality Studies in the Department of Gender, Women’s & Sexuality Studies, sent a vulgar response to a College Republican email about the group’s, “Conservative Coming Out Week.”

The College Republican email, which was sent to the entire University of Iowa Community, had been approved by a number of university officials before being sent out.

Lewin responded to email by writing, “#*@% [F-Word] YOU, REPUBLICANS” from her official university email account.

This is why pushing back against them is so important: Like President Obama, they’re not used to real opposition. They’re unused to being questioned. They consider any challenge to their bogus “moral authority” (based on what, one might ask?) to be tantamount to treason.

And often they’ll double-down when they encounter pushback, just to compound the size of the train-wreck.
