Intolerance for the opinion of others. How progressive:
Diversi-Tea Training - WSJ.com: "'Oreos,' 'Uncle Toms,' 'spook at the door': it turns out people are 'lobbing' racial slurs! When Johnson speaks of the assumption that 'the Republican Party is for whites and the Democratic Party is for blacks,' does anyone doubt the accuracy of his perception?
It is Democrats, not Republicans, who hold this race-based assumption. And it doesn't actually go both ways. No white American today suffers the indignity of being labeled a 'traitor' to his race; the supposedly liberal assumption is that blacks, and only blacks, are expected to think a certain way because of the color of their skin. As Bauman reports:
Black conservatives don't want to have to apologize for their divergent views.
'I've gotten the statement, 'How can you not support the brother?'�' said David Webb, an organizer of New York City's Tea Party 365, Inc. movement and a conservative radio personality.
Since Obama's election, Webb said some black conservatives have even resorted to hiding their political views.
'I know of people who would play the (liberal) role publicly, but have their private opinions,' he said. 'They don't agree with the policy but they have to work, live and exist in the community. .�.�. Why can't we speak openly and honestly if we disagree?'"
