CNN’s Fareed Zakaria: Liberals have an ‘Attitude of Self-Righteousness’

Highlighting the anti-Trump liberal sentiment during this commencement (i.e. college graduation) season, CNN’s Fareed Zakaria [1] said that liberals say that they are tolerant, but their recent actions say the opposite.

He pointed to the walkout protest by about one hundred Notre Dame students [2] during Vice President Mike Pence’s commencement address, violent protests [3] directed at Charles Murray, and boos during Betsy DeVos’s speech [4] at Bethune-Cookman University.

Zakaria criticized the liberals for not protecting the freedom of thought on allegedly-liberal-minded (i.e. open-minded) college campuses. He called it “an attitude of self-righteousness.”

This take is not a hot take, but a common sense take by Zakaria.
