"True believers" in just about any cultural, ideological or religious system can be dangerous. Once you start seeing people who have different ideas from you as a "threat" that has to be silenced or neutralized rather than someone either to engage in debate with, passively listen to or ignore, you're crossing a line. And "I don't like what you're saying so I'm going to kill you" is only the extreme end of a behavioural spectrum that also includes "I don't like what you're saying so I'm going to dox you and try to get you fired" (the go-to strategy of millenial SJWs).

I also include on that spectrum the labelling as un-Canadian (implying treasonous) of right-of-centre opinion (and specifically Western Canadian populist conservatism) by the defenders of the old Laurentian Consensus. With Stephen Harper leaving public life, I think this is a good time to acknowledge the service he had done Canadians by demonstrating that a party thinking outside the Laurentian box could form government. Here's hoping the Downtown Consensus proves just as capable of being challenged.
