The left is always touting how they are on the side of tolerance, flush with calls for Kumbaya unity with the very same people they have trashed for the last 8 years…all because Obamunity has been elected.
Want a couple of examples of that peace, love and Kumbaya? Just in the last few days we have a seemingly benign, but effective, example and a potentially dangerous example.

The very effective example comes to us courtesy of Catherine Vogt, a 14-year old 8th grader in Chicago. From Chicago Tribune (H/T: Michelle Malkin):
She noticed that fellow students at Gwendolyn Brooks Middle School overwhelmingly supported Barack Obama for president. His campaign kept preaching “inclusion,” and she decided to see how included she could be.
So just before the election, Catherine consulted with her history teacher, then bravely wore a unique T-shirt to school and recorded the comments of teachers and students in her journal. The T-shirt bore the simple yet quite subversive words drawn with a red marker: “McCain Girl.”…
….Immediately, Catherine learned she was stupid for wearing a shirt with Republican John McCain’s name. Not merely stupid. Very stupid.
“People were upset. But they started saying things, calling me very stupid, telling me my shirt was stupid and I shouldn’t be wearing it,” Catherine said.
Then it got worse.
“One person told me to go die. It was a lot of dying. A lot of comments about how I should be killed,” Catherine said, of the tolerance in Oak Park.
But students weren’t the only ones surprised that she wore a shirt supporting McCain.
“In one class, I had one teacher say she will not judge me for my choice, but that she was surprised that I supported McCain,” Catherine said….
“He said, ‘You should be crucifixed.’ It was kind of funny because, I was like, don’t you mean ‘crucified?’ ” Catherine said.
Other entries in her notebook involved suggestions by classmates that she be “burned with her shirt on” for “being a filthy-rich Republican.”
Some said that because she supported McCain, by extension she supported a plan by deranged skinheads to kill Obama before the election. And I thought such politicized logic was confined to American newsrooms. Yet Catherine refused to argue with her peers. She didn’t want to jeopardize her experiment….
……That’s when you know America is truly supportive of diversity of opinion, when children must whisper for fear of being ostracized, heckled and crucifixed…..
…..The next day, in part 2 of The Brave Catherine Vogt Experiment, she wore another T-shirt, this one with “Obama Girl” written in blue. And an amazing thing happened.
Catherine wasn’t very stupid anymore. She grew brains.
“People liked my shirt. They said things like my brain had come back, and I had put the right shirt on today,” Catherine said…
…and she turned her journal into a report for her history teacher, earning Catherine extra credit. We asked the teacher, Norma Cassin-Pountney, whether it was ironic that Catherine would be subject to such intolerance from pro-Obama supporters in a community that prides itself on its liberal outlook.
Second example? Now for the immature, imbecilic nature of the radical, homosexual Left….I wonder when their antics will warrant charges of HATE crime?
Oh, silly me…I forgot….that crime is meant only for those who look at a homosexual the wrong way lest they get their pantyhose in a wad…..homosexuals who act like Bill Ayers in drag are just exercising their rights to “free speech”, I guess…
Message to those inciting violence….Grow up…you are not helping your cause.
Churches Threatened (“Burn the F&*%ing churches”)
Powder mailed to Morman churches
Ahhh…..the sounds of tolerance in the morning!
