Man in suit: Well, I'm off to lunch, so I'll let you handle this one, Doris.
Caption: The Art of Delegation
Table reads: Tolerance for all parade
Sign on table reads: Registration
Tolerance for all… well except you people and of course them and uh… yeah, they over there, they’re just too uh different…
“Doesn’t matter whether I agree with you or not, you’re okay on Free Speech grounds. We may have some issues with the fire safety code, though.”
I’m sure Doris is up to this.
You’re not allowed in the parade if you’re going to assault random parade participants. Remember, it’s consenting adults only.
Is this one of the “Them” they were talking about in the previous week??
well there you go…you named the parade tolerance for all..fairness can sometimes be so unfair..
Maybe he is from Spain
Either you live up to what you say, or you’re a hypocrite.
If you don’t tolerate my intolerance, then you’re intolerant. Of course, “tolerance” itself is gradually being phased out because you got idiots who said things like, “If you’re tolerant, then you have to tolerate my robbery, my wife beating, my drunk driving … Otherwise, you’re not tolerant.” What they really mean is equal treatment of people and no discrimination against people for who they are, not for the anti-social activities they choose to take part in.
Well, sure.It’s still a rainbow.But the infrared and the ultraviolet cannot be seen.Can’t be too hot or too cold.You have to be juuuust right!
Why a Klansman? Why not someone from the Left? They’re the ones screaming “intolerance” the most…and they’re the least tolerant.
Tolerance does not and should not extend to people hurting other people.
No, not on front lawns. They burn their victims in the media.
Just leave your rope at home.
I heard the KKK gave $ to Ron Paul’s campaign and people demanded he give it back – his response was something like – “let me get this straight – you want me to give money to the KKK?”. That is classic!
Is it Varne’s day off? Or did he deligate?
Courtesy to an intolerant? Well, good luck. Then it could just be some guy who cannot afford clothes or the robe disguises his NRA ikon.
Don’t get a Unitarian mad. He’ll burn a question mark on your lawn.
This trope has been used successfully in other areas as well. Calvin Grondahl is a gifted cartoonist raised in the Mormon faith who had a supreme gift for pillorying the foibles of his ancestral religion. On of my favorites:
I say let ’em march, and let the crowd decide.
" ikon?"~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~As Google Search would say,“Did you mean ‘icon?’"
NOTICE: Today’s Tolerance for All Parade has been canceled do to the lack of Tolerant participants.
Who would recognize a “Left Group” you are implying is equivalent to the Klan? I noticed you did not have one forth coming. But then nothing like the Klan on the Left every existed.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~I can’t argue with you or disagree with you. because I have no idea what you’re saying.
“sorry, sir, but Tea Party registration is three doors further down the hall to the right.”
The lynchpin of tolerance is stopping the lynching. (literal of figurative)
How often missed that radicals so often wear hoods, to hide their cowardice, either physical or intellectual. Power to observe reality would destroy the hatred focused by the headgear.
Except by all those people they Terrorized and Murdered.But they didn’t get to to write their opinions down.That was one of the things they got Murdered for.Or, in many cases, just for Learning HOW to Write.
An old saying from my Grandmother’s time:.Solomon Grundy, Solomon Grundy.Went to Church every Sunday.Went to Hell for what he did on Monday..
Tolerance for their existence is fine. They can and should have the same rights as everyone else. That does not mean we have to condone their beliefs or agree with them. But we can’t treat them differently under the law because we disagree with them. Will be a great day when Christians in the U.S. realize this.
Dr. J….Just didn’t have anything useful to say…That being said..Now I can point out that tolerance never includes violence…Some things can’t be tolerated…
Oh, good line about delegation…
“For all” is an ambiguous, if not fluid, concept for Millennials.
Quite a parade of tolerance.
Do I detect Conflict in the Workplace? He should be prepared for a very uncomfortable time upon returning after lunch.
There’s a misconception that tolerance must tolerate intolerance. It’s a guilt weapon bigots use. I have no qualms being intolerant towards bigots. If you choose to be exclusive, you should have no expectation of being included.
Packratjohn: Would I ever twist a word, or be tongue in cheek? (Granted, I do have my share of missed typos.)
once again..sad how sometimes being fair can be so unfair…
Well, I would say round up all the slave owners and the racist terrorists who lynched or otherwise brought “rough justice” to others and give them a fair trial prior to their execution, but they have all already been dead for quite some time. Would you like a bottle of water and a map to their graves so you can express yourself in a more fluid fashion upon their remains?
Ah, nostalgia! Wiley did a similar cartoon 20 years ago (np950523.jpg), except the speech bubble was “You want to handle this one, Miss Let’s-give-the-parade-a-name-that-will-make-everyone-feel-welcome…?”.
