Opinion: Time For A Little Intolerance – Buz Williams

Tolerance will reach such a level that intelligent people will be banned from thinking so as not to offend the imbeciles.” Unknown, often attributed to Dostoevsky

Senator Barry Goldwater was one of the original conservatives to buck the Republican Party establishment. As a result, many of the establishment Republicans from the Northeast refused to endorse him in the 1964 Presidential election. They thought he was too extreme in his views. When he ran for the Republican Presidential nomination in 1964, the attacks from the liberal/moderate wing of the party aided the Democrats in labelling Goldwater as a radical, who could get the US into a nuclear war.

The Senator knew that this would be the Democrats main vehicle of attack, so he confronted it head on in his acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention. In his address, Goldwater said,  “I would remind you that extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice! And let me remind you also that moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue!” The eloquent truth of these words did not help Goldwater overcome the vitriolic attacks by President Johnson and the RINO Republicans of that day. He lost the election by a landslide. Yet Goldwater courageously never backed down from those words or the conservative principles that gave birth to them. They paved the path for the Reagan revolution in 1980.

Every left leaning, mainstream media hypocrite keeps crowing about the need for tolerance, while “cancelling” all those with opposing views. Those of us who used to be called the silent majority, need to start vociferously and publicly expressing our intolerance of every half-wit woke policy. We must not let an infinitesimal, lunatic fringe group dictate public and cultural policies. We must confront them on every platform.

These leftist radicals need to be confronted in every media. Letters to the editors, responses on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and every other public forum. When shamed about not following the science on the “crisis of climate change”, point out that the US has the lowest carbon emissions of any developed country in the world, and imposing the Paris accord restrictions on us will do little to lower the world carbon footprint. The reason is China and India won’t have to follow those self imposed restrictions for years, if ever. They should also be advised what simpletons they are when they want to make public policy based on the rantings of a spoiled, indoctrinated Swedish teenager.

When one of the transgenderistas demands that some unstable individuals be referred to by the pronouns that they prefer, even though those pronouns are contrary to their biological sex, we don’t have to play that game. We need to advise them that we are not buying into their psychosis that will prostitute and confuse the English language. It should be pointed out to the wokesters, that it is contrary to the science of biology, that there are as many as 56 or 72 sexes.

Those school officials, teachers, principals, and librarians who promote drag queen readings, fashion shows and other events where children are present, need to be fired. If possible, these so-called educational leaders need to be prosecuted for child endangering and/or pedophilia. So should businesses that promote such events where children are encouraged to attend. Such businesses should be boycotted by people and families that want to protect kids.

Critical Race Theory and similar socialist theories, need to be taken out of all schools. It is divisive. It teaches that one race oppresses the other races. The lessons it teaches bring out all of the negatives of this country’s White race and none of the positive and corrective actions taken. It makes every other race “victims” and generates racial animosity. Other woke educational theories, like “Three and Then Me” mathematics should be eliminated for our schools’ curricula. Parents and taxpayers should insist that our educators teach the basics and not “social justice”. Morality is best taught by parents, families and religious organizations. It is so important for parents, grandparents and taxpayers to study school board candidates and vote in these elections.

The woke progressives continually whine about defunding the police, prison overpopulation, racial inequity, “systemic racism” in the criminal justice arena and lowering or eliminating criminal penalties. All rational people have to do is point out the astronomical rise in crime in the leftist jurisdictions that have done these things, with the help of the District Attorneys who hold these views. The more criminals who are in prison and jail, the fewer crimes are committed. That is an incontrovertible fact.

To paraphrase Barry Goldwater: Intolerance in opposition to idiotic policies is no vice. Tolerance of antisocial, moronic ideas is no virtue.

  1. While I question comparing Barry Goldwater’s loss in 1964 to Donald Trump’s win in 2020, It does draw the RINO camp into a deeper trench in Washington. Our contests to select a US Senator and US Congressman this year becomes more critical as we deplore RINOS in our primary but want a person of strong constitutional character to win November 8th and oppose the Washington Democrat-RINO’s.
    Hopefully, enough Arizonians have there political eyes open as the primary of August 2nd. looms. More than ever before our vote will determine if we can begin to defeat the Biden-Obama regime in Washington

    Mr. Williams, You wrote “the US has the lowest carbon emissions of any developed country in the world”, not sure where you get your information, every source that I could find indicates that the U.S. has, by far, the most carbon emissions of any country on the planet. China is in second place at about half of the U.S. carbon emissions. Thought you might like to know…

      CO2 emissions by region
      This interactive chart shows the breakdown of global CO2 emissions by region.

      We see that until well into the 20th century, global emissions were dominated by Europe and the United States. In 1900, more than 90% of emissions were produced in Europe or the US; even by 1950, they accounted for more than 85% of emissions each year.

      But in recent decades this has changed significantly.

      In the second half of the 20th century we see a significant rise in emissions in the rest of the world, particularly across Asia, and most notably, China.

      The US and Europe now account for just under one-third of emissions.

        Mr. Williams, You wrote “the US has the lowest carbon emissions of any developed country in the world”, I retorted that you were wrong and the US has the highest carbon emissions of any country, how does the information you posted refute what I wrote?

        1. Sorry, George. It didn’t copy but one side of the screen. Let me go back and give you the website, when I get some free time.

  3. Fully agreed Buz, the Radical Left Cash Grabbers need to confronted and brought to heel. The root cause of all the madness we see around us is the Radical Left’s desire to steal other people’s money.

    Electoral theft is a Radical Left Cash Grab (the biggest cash grab of them all)
    Climate change is a Radical Left Cash Grab
    Fake victim-hood is a Radical Left Cash Grab
    CRT is a Radical Left Cash Grab
    Teacher’s Unions are Radical Left Cash Grabbers
    (Free) abortion is a Radical Left Cash Grab
    COVID-1984 restrictions were/are a Radical Left Cash Grab
    Gun control is a Radical Left Cash Grab
    The Jan 6th Clown Show is a Radical Left Cash Grab
    The Russia Hoax is/was a Radical Left Cash Grab
    Climate accords are a Radical Left Cash Grab
    The Green New Deal is a Radical Left Cash Grab
    Defund the Police is a Radical Left Cash Grab

    And now, everyone knows it and the Radical Left will get clobbered in the November election. Just look at the massive number of formerly Democrat voters in South Texas now staunchly supporting Constitutional Conservatives. The Radical Left Cash Grabbers see the freight train heading straight towards them and they know they can’t do a thing about it, except figure out new ways to cheat.

  4. Buz, your data came through a bit garbled, probably because of the limitations of website text boxes, but good on you for providing data.
