'There Is No Room in This Country for Difference of Opinion'

Andrea Peyser destroys the modern-day stormtroopers of the left. You know them, they're the ones always preaching tolerance. Yet if you say anything against the hard left orthodoxy, why, you must be destroyed.

Carrie Prejean stands head and shoulders above these characters assassins. For that she should expect the venom to get even worse.
It was disgraceful that it had to come to this.

The hoopla began at April's Miss USA pageant, when Carrie was asked a question by a blogger "with an agenda," as she put it. It was a trick question -- there was only one correct answer.

He asked if she favored legalizing gay marriage. Here's what Carrie said:

"We live in a land where you can choose same-sex marriage or opposite marriage. And you know what, I think in my country, in my family, I think that I believe that a marriage should be between a man and a woman. No offense to anybody out there, but that's how I was raised."

She came in second.

Her answer sounds reasonable to me. But from the reaction, you'd think she promoted human sacrifice.

"The president of the United States gave the same answer!" Trump implored yesterday.

No matter. In an awful display of intolerance, bloggers, TV types, and hunt-and-peck letter-writers crucified, tormented and threatened Carrie.

Only then did someone dredge up topless -- from the back -- photos taken when she was 17. Another risqué set taken two years ago by a surfing magazine was posted on the TMZ Web site. Imagine! Sexy, and partially topless, photos of a woman who parades onstage in a bikini.

Finally, the pageant had found a way to get rid of her! Not so fast. No one believed the pics had anything to do with the push to dump her.

The forces of diversity and inclusivity are lying. There is no room in this country for difference of opinion.
