Ah, that vaunted liberal tolerance. The left is all for free speech and the open expression of ideas … just so long as those ideas happen to be theirs. If they aren’t, you’re often going to be told in a very stern manner that what you believe is Not Correct.
And if you’re on Facebook, you’re likely going to find yourself in Unfriendsville.
A new study by the Public Religion Research Institute released on Monday proved what a lot of us suspected: When it comes to politics, the left’s holy jihad against contradictory ideas has extended even to Facebook.
According to the study, Democrat women were the most likely demographic to unfriend people on the social media site over their political opinions. Democrats as a whole are also almost three times more likely than Republicans to have kicked a friend to the curb online, according to Fortune.
“More than one in 10 (13 percent) Americans say they blocked, unfriended, or stopped following someone on social media because of what they posted about politics,” a statement from PRRI read. “Democrats are more than twice as likely as Republicans to report unfriending someone over politics (24 percent vs. 9 percent), and that number rises even more among women. Three in 10 (30 percent) Democratic women say they removed someone from a social network because of a political view.”
When it comes to arguing at holiday dinners, it seems that the left is a bit more reticent to have it out with their friends and family as they fêted at the dinner table than they were when they were sitting behind a computer screen.
“Despite the contentious nature of the 2016 presidential election, only 16 percent of Americans report that their family argued about politics or the election over the Thanksgiving holiday,” the study read. “And while only 5 percent of Americans say they are planning on spending less time with certain family members because of their political views, Democrats (10 percent) are more likely than Republicans (2 percent) to say they are avoiding certain family members this holiday season because of their political views.”
So, basically, no matter what the situation, Democrats and liberals are less likely to be able to maturely handle an open exchange of ideas, even on Facebook. In other news, members of the bear family are known to use forested areas of America as convenient places to defecate.
