The Oh So Tolerant Leftists

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2011/07/15

Chicago had a Literature Festival. You know, where they celebrate literature and get to buy books on the street and neat-o stuff like that. And a group set up shop ostensibly to push for book banning. What came of it is very telling.

The vote totals, in percentage format, came at the end. And it was very telling. What did these Chicago Literature Festival attendees want banned?

Sarah Palin 38 percent
Glenn Beck 23 percent
Ann Coulter 22 percent
Adolf Hitler 0.5 percent
Michael Moore 0.3 percent
Bill Clinton 0.2 percent
Barack Obama 0.1 percent

Do you see what I see? The oh so tolerant Chicago Leftists wanted to ban three outspoken members of the political Right while giving a pass to the political Left — even giving a pass to Adolf Hitler! As Dean said over at Beers with Demo, “Hey, Chicago-landers, why just merely ban books… wouldn’t book burnings be so much more fun?

I’m sure there would be those on the Left who would say “but not everyone voted to ban books, so your numbers don’t mean anything.” That sounds like a nice, neat argument but it falls on its face. Because the Leftists are constantly talking about how the Right is intolerant and into book bannings and book burnings, those who would actually vote to ban books would be on the Right, wouldn’t they? But those who actually voted to ban books were almost solely on the Left, as proven by the numbers. As I said, when the argument about “not everyone voted to ban” is examined based on the actual results, the argument does more to harm the Leftist’s cause than to help.
