Patting yourselves on the back on how open-minded you are while not listening to those whom you consider closed minded, makes you closed minded.
I went to Hampshire College in Amherst MA – the royalty of liberal thought, back in 1990/91. Even at 18 yrs old I could see it: “We’re tolerant unlike those intolerant people.”
But to me, to BE tolerant, you have to tolerate the intolerant, otherwise you’re intolerant of the intolerant making you intolerant.
I lost a few friends when I’d say that, but whatever. tongue emoticon
