"Tolerance" is just a mask for suppressing opposing viewpoints... by calling those opposing viewpoints "intolerant" and thus making them intolerable. The irony shouldn't be lost on anyone...
Yes, but the clarion cry against tolerance isn't against a tolerance that defends dictatorships, lies, etc. It is tolerance for viewpoints that those who don't like tolerance don't care for. And they mask their intolerance for those alternative viewpoints in "free speech".
