C'mon! They're the people and party of TOLERANCE

Please. Kudos to this young lady for opening some eyes on one of the biggest knee-slappers that exists today -- that "progressives" are oh-so tolerant of others:

Catherine Vogt, 14, is an Illinois 8th grader, the daughter of a liberal mom and a conservative dad. She wanted to conduct an experiment in political tolerance and diversity of opinion at her school in the liberal suburb of Oak Park.

She noticed that fellow students at Gwendolyn Brooks Middle School overwhelmingly supported Barack Obama for president. His campaign kept preaching "inclusion," and she decided to see how included she could be.

So just before the election, Catherine consulted with her history teacher, then bravely wore a unique T-shirt to school and recorded the comments of teachers and students in her journal. The T-shirt bore the simple yet quite subversive words drawn with a red marker:

"McCain Girl."

"I was just really curious how they'd react to something that different, because a lot of people at my school wore Obama shirts and they are big Obama supporters," Catherine told us. "I just really wanted to see what their reaction would be."

Immediately, Catherine learned she was stupid for wearing a shirt with Republican John McCain's name. Not merely stupid. Very stupid.

"People were upset. But they started saying things, calling me very stupid, telling me my shirt was stupid and I shouldn't be wearing it," Catherine said.

Then it got worse.

Yep, it did.

  • "Go die," was a common remark directed her way.
  • She should "be killed."
  • "You should be 'crucifixed.'" (A stupid liberal! Who'da thought?)
  • She should be "burned with her shirt on" for "being a filthy-rich Republican."
  • That, because she supported McCain, she thus supported a plan by those idiot skinheads to kill Obama.

(Hey! Now we know from what grade this dope must've dropped out of school!)

Needless to say, when young Catherine wore her Obama shirt the next day, the attitude of her peers was quite different. They were ... "tolerant." "Understanding." Even ... "progressive."

Don't be fooled.
