According to the Left. It seems that liberal actor Mark Duplass had tweeted some praise for the Conservative Ben Shapiro. Duplass committed the unpardonable sin of saying Shapiro was a “genuine person,” and he
encouraged “fellow liberals” to follow Shapiro if they are interested in hearing perspective from the other side of the political aisle.
Oh so tolerant (and loudly and proudly tolerant) Left got on Duplass about that. Rather than going on about his business, ignoring that wind in the trees, though, Duplass cowered under his desk and apologized for his offense.
So that tweet was a disaster on many levels. I want to be clear that I in no way endorse hatred, racism, homophobia, xenophobia, or any such form of intolerance. My goal has always been to spread unity, understanding, and kindness.
As Shapiro put it in response to the diatribe,
…write a nice tweet about someone with whom you disagree politically, get labeled a racist sexist homophobe. Good stuff, guys. Really showing that tolerant streak[.]
Duplass’ cowardice has demonstrated the Left’s hatred and intolerance.
