Intolerance occurs when one does not tolerate the ideas, character, or identity of another.

Intolerance is the supposed target of so-called hate speech rules and laws. Various special-interest groups have forced companies, public school values and big governments to define any criticism of their group activities as motivated by hate. Corretta Scott King, for example, conflates homophobia with racial or religious bigotry:

The error in this argument is obvious. Telling someone about a warning in the Bible does them a favor, without expressing hatred toward them. (In fact, it may be a small step on the road to their salvation.) When a teacher instructs a pupil not to steal from others, not to assault them or tease them or bully them, these instructions are for the child's benefit. Similarly, informing homosexuals or others of the sin or immorality they are committing though promiscuity and drug abuse is a case of freedom of speech, whereas a homosexual reacting with intolerant speech toward one's religious beliefs is his/her expression of freedom of speech. It is telling of liberal intolerance that they resort to insults at all.

Many liberals claim that intolerance is purely conservative. However, intolerance is not limited to a side, and anyone can be intolerant. Saying otherwise is similar to calling black-on-white violencereverse-racism.” Racism is race-based hate or discrimination, regardless of the identity of its target.
