#WhyWeResist (THREAD) Renowned spiritual leader John Neuhas once said:
"Genuine #tolerance does not mean ignoring differences as if differences made no difference. Genuine tolerance means engaging differences w/in a bond of #civility & #respect." #CampaignforCivility 1/
Neuhas was not completely right. #Fascists, #WhiteSupremacists, Nazis, bigots, etc. lambast progressives for not tolerating their views. But hateful extremists use #tolerance merely as a tool to gain acceptance & obtain power. #CampaignforCivility #WhyWeResist 2/
Once fascists & bigots are in power, they vilify all who are different, all who dare to disagree. They only care about one thing: consolidating their power. #CampaignforCivility #WhyWeResist 3/

It’s not just about what #ToleranceMeans - tolerance is putting up with things you don’t agree with. It’s begrudgingly civil & fine to start.
But it’s being ok to simply tolerate that’s keeping us stuck as a nation.

Intolerance is not to be tolerated. And we need to learn acceptance.
Acceptance mean more than #ToleranceMeans. Acceptance means, I may not agree with your views but I don’t wish to antagonize you either.

Unless you move against me.
