Yale Students Whine about Tolerance

Erika Christakis and her husband, Professor Nicholas Christakis, live with undergrads. They sent out an email asking for tolerance on Halloween, asking students under their care to “Look away” if the saw a costume that offended them.

This is the definition of tolerance. Don’t make a scene with something you don’t like.

This video shows a young girl who flips out over being asked to be tolerant, and took it out on Nicholas.

He never raises his voice, while she’s screaming and cussing him out. This seems to be a combination of multiple liberal policies. Among them are tolerance and the whole “you’re special” ideal. If you are special, then others don’t need the benefits you have. So you don’t have to be tolerant of them. Think about where this could lead.
