That means this is a war on reason. And the generals leading the attack are mostly conservative politicians and pundits who have characterized our greatest thinkers as “elitists” who look down on everyone else.
Never is there a big pull to force everyone to think and act a certain way, to have opinions that are popular or moral, to push emotional biases and get people to think in line with what is "right". This is done by the left, just as much as the right, under just as much of an emotional-appeal, and with the same consequences.
Of course, one shouldn't tolerate "bigotry".
