Former Romney spokesman Richard Grenell knows a thing or two about liberal tolerance. After the Left falsely claimed bigoted conservatives forced Grenell out of his campaign gig because he’s gay, he said:

Some of the most hateful, mean-spirited intolerant comments about me being the foreign policy and national security spokesman for Governor Romney … were coming from the left.

So when Grenell spotted actor Harvey Fierstein’s obnoxious tweet about Romney, he hit back.

Fierstein tried to play the oh-so-original “humorless conservative” card, but Grenell wasn’t having it.

Shorter Harvey “Pee-wee” Fierstein: I know you are, but what am I?

Wishing natural disaster harm on others? Uh oh. Did Fierstein pull an Ellen Barkin? Or maybe a Samuel L. Jackson?

Here’s what he tweeted on Sunday as Tropical Storm Isaac threatened the GOP convention in Tampa:

Classy. And tolerant, natch. Those icky Republicans were totally asking for it when they bared a little too much conservative leg.

Fierstein’s “what goes around comes around” sense of “humor” shines a spotlight directly on his unwillingness to tolerate different ideas. As with the rest of the open-minded Left, tolerance isn’t actually a virtue. At best it’s a bumper sticker; more often than not, it’s a bludgeon used to beat back opposing views.
