Survey Finds, Shockingly, that Progressives are the Least Tolerant Group on College Campuses

Most of them would be very offended to have to share a room with someone who's political beliefs didn't coincide with their own.

This reminds me of a point I think is worth making:

Conservatives used to speak of "moral relativism" derisively, and sometimes still do. However, the bulk of conservative argumentation is actually about tolerant inclusive pluralism -- because they merely want to voice dissident opinions (dissident, though often having firm majority support in the public) without being legally or economically punished for it.

Meanwhile, progressives continue to laughingly speak of pluralism, tolerance, inclusivity -- the idea that their are "many truths," and some things may seem true to you depending on where you stand -- while in fact pushing a coercive totalitarian line that exactly One truth is true, and all other are not only false, but punishable through extra-legal social justice, which may involve some phonied up charges laid against you, or a college kangaroo court, or mace in the face, or a coordinated political campaign to deprive you of your livelihood.

This is strange. People should know what they are really arguing for.
