They are Bigots

There is no surprise, I have answered the comments referred to in my previous post; which I have only recently read.  The one is extraordinary; and shows, I think, a major problem with the left – its intolerance of different ideas; exhibited here as an attack on the common man. 

Why this should be so is not entirely clear, but seems linked to its historical tendency to splinter into many small groups, each following their own theology.  Part of the reason must be its intellectual nature: everything comes to depend on one’s own set of quite strictly demarcated views.  It is a world where relatively simple ideas become formulas; maintained against all criticism.   An intellectual rigidity results; and intolerance naturally follows.
