If you needed another example of intolerance from the self-described “tolerant” left, then look no further than Kent State University, where two socialist groups on campus refused to participate in a charity food drive with two conservative groups because of their “intolerant, dangerous beliefs.”
Don’t you just love it when the hypocrisy is loud, proud, and documented for all to see?
According to the Washington Examiner, the two conservative groups, Turning Point USA and Young Americans for Liberty, challenged the socialist groups, the Kent State Socialist Collective and Kent State Young Democratic Socialists, to a friendly competition called “The Turning Point Challenge” to see who could raise the most non-perishable food for those in need.
However, the socialist groups were not happy with the proposal, responding in a joint statement with this:

Despite the socialists refusal to join the competition, they still decided to do a food-drive of their own.
But they're not off the hook just yet. The problem with their refusal stems from their supposed claim of intolerance by their conservative counterparts. It doesn't take much to realize that these college socialists are the one's being intolerant. If they truly wanted to model acceptance and care for their neighbors, then they should start with the one's that they disagree with the most.
Since it appears that we’ve been given free reign these days to throw around “phobias” and “isms” indiscriminately, I’m going to go ahead and say that these college socialist groups are guilty of being “conservaphobic” and need to check their tolerance at the door.
