Nah, we tend not to be fans of the death penalty.

Not in policy, but I see plenty of that ilk saying that 'so and so ought to be killed/punched/etc for saying/believing X'.

I mean, I see a lot of people saying we should punch Nazis, which... we kinda had a whole war where killing Nazis was a major goal, and that's peanuts compared to what they'd do were they to rise to power again, so...

That's not really germane. And also what constitutes a 'Nazi' or a fascist is pretty loose on your side, hence where the religion aspect comes in. The anger directed towards anyone not 'progressive' is basically a form of 'burn the heretic', even if only metaphorically.

Nazis are pretty germane, that's where the whole thing started, after all :p

Y'all say that, but...

Ah yes, and we all know conservatives are known for being open-minded and accommodating.

...But we digress.

We're not open minded and accommodating, that's the point. But so called progressivism is supposed to be.

Only to a degree. Paradox of tolerance, and all.
