I don’t even know where to begin to disagree with you on so many fronts.

I’m not sure why you’re telling me how terrible Trump is—if you pay attention to the logic of my argument, rather than your feelings about its subject, you’ll find that I never ever defended Trump. On the contrary, I expressly stated in the intro to this article that I dislike him and that he needs to be kept in check by the people.

I am defending classical liberal principles, not any political or cultural movement (frankly, I don’t care about any of them).

But I suspect you’re finding this topic too emotionally charged to separate a discussion about how to feel from one about how to act.

You’re trying to counter an ideological position with a political argument. I don’t mind that you disagree with me because you clearly haven’t grasped what this particular conversation is about.

I don’t care whose fault it is that the world is intolerant (because proving fault is a wild goose chase—we’re all at fault). I’m making a case for how we can avoid making it even more intolerant, by responding in like to the proliferators of intolerance.
