Tolerance on Display

Sad that a 14 year old gets it when so many adults don't:

As the media keeps gushing on about how America has finally adopted tolerance as the great virtue, and that we're all united now, let's consider the Brave Catherine Vogt Experiment.
Catherine Vogt, 14, is an Illinois 8th grader, the daughter of a liberal mom and a conservative dad. She wanted to conduct an experiment in political tolerance and diversity of opinion at her school in the liberal suburb of Oak Park.
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."
"I was just really curious how they'd react to something that different, because a lot of people at my school wore Obama shirts and they are big Obama supporters," Catherine told us. "I just really wanted to see what their reaction would be."
"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.
"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.
One student suggested that she be put up on a cross for her political beliefs.
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.

The Politics of Tolerance has been illusory at best. And all of us who have not supported the messiah have been slandered like this.

Since Barack is a "new" politician, any criticism of him has been labelled "divisive", "mean", or downright "raaaaaaacist". His supporters have been fanatics in exporting his "change", by force if neccessary!

Behind each one of these violent little Obama "change thugs", is a big violent Obama supporting "change thug" no doubt. Political stupidity in children comes from political stupidity in parents.

We have 4 years of this crap to look forward to.

This child's experiment seals it.
The double standards and hypocrisy of the democratic party is precisely one of the reasons I converted to conservatism. This is the modus operandi I see from them continually ... they espouse "tolerance," "fairness," etc., yet are abject failures at living it. Every single liberal with whom I am personally aquainted, holds everyone BUT themselves to the standards they claim their party is about. Go check out the posting on "Liberal Niceness" at
