Chris Christie At CPAC: Democrats Are The Party Of Intolerance, Not The GOP

Chris Christie just told a squealing CPAC audience that Democrats are intolerant because they don’t allow pro-life speakers at their conventions. Brian Tashman rips this apart at Right Wing Watch:

“Tell me, sir, the last pro-life Democrat who was allowed to speak at a Democratic convention – and by the way, don’t strain yourself because there’s never been one,” Christie continued. “They’re the party of intolerance, not us.” Even if we accept Christie’s definition of “tolerance,” his claim is still false: the 2012 and 2008 Democratic conventions included speakers who opposed abortion rights, while 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin refused to share the stage with pro-choice Republicans.
