Americans today are much more tolerant than in the 1970s
liberalism in action. and since conservatives are literally dying off, the greatness of America is just beginning.

edit: the exact questions asked

For most of its surveys between 1972 and 2016, the General Social Survey asked a U.S. sample to consider the following types of potential public speakers. (They asked about a few others but the following are the ones they asked most consistently.)

“…a person who believes that Blacks are genetically inferior.” (Henceforth “racist.”)

“Somebody who is against all churches and religion…” (Henceforth “antitheist.”)

“…a man who admits he is a Communist.” (Henceforth “communist.”)

“…a person who advocates doing away with elections and letting the military run the country.” (Henceforth “militarist.”)

“…a man who admits that he is a homosexual?” (Henceforth, “homosexual.”)

For each type of person, they also asked, “If such a person wanted to make a speech in your community, should he be allowed to speak, or not?”

Liberalism today is not tolerant in the least.

Nice provocative troll thread, though

Also, how the frick is it “tolerant” to not let racists speak?

“Who should be allowed to speak?”
I find those data to border on chilling.
The First Amendment protects vile, reprehensible, and racist speech.
The answer is an unequivocal, “everyone.”

So if you don’t want a person to speak, all you have to do is label them “racist”. And we already knew that about the left.

That’s the first use of antitheist I’ve seen. Most people inappropriately use atheist when they speak of someone who is opposed to religion. Atheists are merely without religion personally. It’s antitheists who are actually actively against religion.

Racists haven't gotten as much love over the years. Gays, communists, totalitarians and atheists all get to speak, but racists have remained relatively stable. Why aren't racists getting more love?

re: Americans today are much more tolerant than in the 1970s


Gotta love that selection of categories.

Really? Ya think liberals are more tolerant of communists today? The frick you say.

More tolerant of anti-theists? The frick you say!

Basically, every category except the one they attempt to label ALL of their opponents with.

And given that your categories aren't weighted in terms of how many people the answerers believe fall into each category, you can't even assert the thread title based on the data.

I mean, you do realize that, don't you? Or, were you just led by the nose with something you read on a liberal source?

LOL. Of course you were. Who am I kidding.

Pure Idiocy!

Ben Shapiro, Ann Coulter and Milo cannot speak freely at most colleges today.

Who are the Authoritarians/ Fascists/ Anti-Free Speech Types?

A woman, A Jewish Conservative and a Gay Conservative are denied speech.

Whatever dude. We live in reality. Take off the shades and get a dose of it!

It is, but it has NOTHING to do with liberal or conservative

Free speech is a fundamental constitutional right

Believing in it doesn’t make you lib or con, it makes you a constitutionalist

Holy shit, you really don't understand that you're belief system is the reason for the problems in the world today, do you? Wow.
You people are so fricking stupid it hurts my brain. You are no different than the religious a-holes that punish people for being human.
That's what you do, punish people for being human. Are you so stupid you don't understand that?
