The New “Tolerance”: Kicking Students Out of Class for Not Supporting Gays; Rainbow Flag – Yes, Confederate Flag – No
As we’ve long known, intolerance is now the definition of “tolerance.” If we accept Islamic intolerance of Western values and Islam’s wish to eliminate Jews and Christians from the planet, we are “tolerant.” If we accept and are open to homicide bombings by Islamic terrorist groups, we are “tolerant.” If we accept freedom of speech and are open to those whose traditional Judeo-Christian values do not condone the absurd and the deviant, we are “intolerant.”
Detroit Free Press Headline Celebrates Intolerant Teacher Jay McDowell
And we celebrate those who are intolerant as the “tolerant.” Such is the case with Howell, Michigan High shool teacher Jay McDowell. He kicked a student out of class for that student’s “crime” of saying he didn’t accept gays because it was against his religion. To most of us who have a normal allotment of IQ points and some critical thinking skills, what McDowell did was INtolerant. And it violated that student’s First Amendment speech and religion rights. McDowell was suspended for one day without pay. Oh, and that was after McDowell told another student she must remove her Confederate flag buckle. McDowell got upset when another student asked why Confederate flags had to go but gay rainbow flags could remain.
You’d think that the liberals on this earth would find McDowell’s intolerance appalling. You know, the same liberals who forever lecture us that we must allow convicted Islamic terrorists and others to preach hatred of the West and the mass murder of non-Muslims, all in the name of free speech and the open exchange of ideas, no matter how repulsive. But you’d be wrong. Nope, McDowell is being celebrated. Instead, they are celebrating McDowell as “Teaching Tolerance.” That’s the headline in the print edition of today’s Detroit Free Press (the online edition removed that part, apparently). No, not the headline of an editorial, but the opinionated headline of a supposedly objective newspaper article.
Jay McDowell should be fired. He doesn’t know the definitions of basic words like, “tolerance.” Instead, he teaches definitions via his behavior, which are the exact opposite of the meanings of those words. He also teaches students what to think, instead of how to think.
And he’s badly in need of a dictionary. And a case of sensitivity training. Jay McDowell, a tax-paid, public employee, needs to learn tolerance for those with whose positions he doesn’t agree.
Sadly, the mainstream media is celebrating him. So, he’ll never learn. If I were the student kicked out of class, I’d be contacting the ACLU or some other lawyer. And Jay McDowell and the Howell Public Schools would soon be defendants. And if the student is reading this, I’d love to represent him in this case. Mr. McDowell’s intolerance here is illegal and unconstitutional.
Apparently, the only people who get “tolerance,” these days in America, are Islamic bigots and murderers and boys who dress like girls. G-d help the suicidal West.
