more tolerance of different views from the left.
Governor Cuomo just proved the double standard that the left follows "our views are the only legit ones".

oh and one more thing. Cuomo is RICH and WHITE. I guess because he is a liberal makes
that ok.

I always am baffled at why liberals claim to be such open minded and tolerant people, but yet if you disagree with their political views you are somehow a bad person and have no place in society. It's not very tolerant or open minded at all in reality.

Too bad for Mr. Cuomo because he lives in America where we are allowed to have different opinions and live in any state we want. If he wants to be on the wrong side of the war on babies then that's his own sin, because me and my fellow pro lifers will one day win the war and save the most innocen llives of all, the babies.

EDIT: The source in the OP however does not actually have any account of Cuomo saying this, it's only in the headline. So I suggest taking this with a grain of salt at the moment until it's officially confirmed.

"I have no tolerance for intolerance" seems to be the new slogan of many liberals. That many who spout that fail to understand the problem with that stance is troubling. Who defines what parameters define tolerant and intolerant on any given subject? This is just one example of it.

How odd that your cited link does not contain the actual quote except in the headline.

If this is what the governor said he's off base here. (Without a direct quote here-- It doesn't appear he said this at all and this whole thread is predicated on a lie.) There are certainly two valid viewpoints on abortion. I remain pro-choice, but, understand there is another side here.

When it comes to tolerance, however, there isn't another side to equality...

Racist views, don't deserve tolerance... Homophobic views don't deserve tolerance... I often see arch-conservatives complaining that their views aren't getting "tolerance" after they say something wildly racist or homophobic...

because liberals define anything regarding that is different from their own as racist. Same with homosexuals.
I wonder how many neighbors and co-workers rich white cuomo had to deal with. Usually the ones throwing the racist label
has the issues.

So what you are saying is intolerance is fine so long as you agree with it.

Having no tolerance for intolerance... would be fine. Except that they define "intolerance" as "disagreeing with my politics".

No. Racist is racist. Liberals are no monolith...
