In the days since President-elect Donald Trump’s victory over Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, the self-proclaimed “tolerant” left has proven they are only tolerant when it fulfills their political agenda.
Liberals claim to be very open-minded — but a shocking new scientific study has proven the opposite. Turns out, the left is only tolerant to opinions that align with theirs — and are unwilling to listen to anyone else.
A poll by the nonpartisan Public Religion Research Institute revealed 24 percent of Democrats will silence people on social media because of their political postings, compared to just nine percent of both Republicans and independents who did the same, The Hill reported.
And it’s goes even further than their friends.
The same poll revealed 10 percent of Democrats said they would actually avoid certain members of their own family based on their political affiliation, compared to just two percent of Republicans that would shun their own blood relatives.
The self-proclaimed tolerant and accepting left is quickly losing credibility as we see how they react to not getting their way for the first time in eight years.
Just look at how they’re reacting to celebrities.
Liberals are used to the Hollywood elite always supporting their candidate… and when a few celebrities expressed their support for the future President, the loony left lost it.
Kanye West was the first unexpected celebrity to show his support for Trump when he met with the President-Elect at Trump tower… and his presence was met with insane backlash.
Slate magazine labeled West as a prop for Trump’s transition team to distract from, “Trump’s Cabinet controversies, unkosher business dealings, and alarming links to Moscow.”
West took to Twitter to explain the encounter:
I wanted to meet with Trump today to discuss multicultural issues.

But to liberals, there’s no way this was a genuine meeting to discuss ways to make America great.
And the intense criticism of this liberal rag went even further. Kanye’s actions are compared to that of a fascist, specifically former Italian dictator Benito Mussolini.
So now those who support Trump are vicious fascists supporting anti-American ideals? Please.
One twitter user with common sense called out the hypocrisy:

And West isn’t the only celebrity Democrats were quick to turn on.
Italian opera singer Andrea Bocelli was invited to perform at Trump’s inauguration, an invitation which he originally expressed interest in.
Shortly after, Twitter exploded with the hashtag #BoycottBocelli, suggesting if he agreed to the performance he would lose support from his fans. Due to the bullying and intimidation from anti-Trumpers, Bocelli ultimately backed out of the performance.
And the bullying got personal Thursday, when Ivanka Trump and her children were verbally assaulted on a JetBlue flight by a rabid anti-Trump lawyer.
As Ivanka tried to distract her children from the potentially traumatizing scenario, Dan Goldstein, screamed at her, “Your father is ruining the country! Why is she even on this flight!? She should be flying a private plane!” The maniac was ultimately removed from the flight for his unruly actions.
So much for tolerance.
