Tolerance and empathy - but only if you're on the side of goodness and all that is right and tinkerbell

There have been some fairly high profile instances of internet harassment recently, teens killing themselves because the adults in their lives failed to support and protect them. I am sure you heard.

I'm so proud of my fellow progressives, we're risen so far above the hateful intolerance and myopic, self-serving rhetoric of those evil mother fucking UNprogressive spawns of the DEVIL (that we don't believe in)...

In fact, they totally deserve all that's coming to them even if they're teenaged boys encouraged and bolstered by hateful adults. It's a WAR and they're the ENEMY.
