In response to the inflamed readers who were vexed by the article regarding Stephen K. Bannon's Sarah Palin documentary ("Film highlights Palin's successes," Aug. 12):
Last time I checked, tolerance is a two-way street. But for the left it seems that tolerance is more clearly defined as accepting their way of thinking and keeping one's opinions to oneself if one does not agree. The readers who made such a fuss about the article should really get out more. Do they not read and hear everyday how the mainstream media loves to malign Palin for getting out of bed each morning?
It's unfortunate that just because some narrow-minded readers don't agree with Palin's views they have to complain to the paper for covering a story about a local who made a political documentary. Where is that open-minded spirit to which liberals lay claim? Surely no one would complain if it was another Al Gore documentary — and he does not even live in Laguna. But then again, that's tolerance when you bat for the left.
