Moral color blindness

It seems I'm not the only one to use that description. The same term is used here: Pajamas Media » How Should Conservatives Deal with the Left’s Disrespect and Lack of Empathy?

Jonathan Haidt...states:
“I think of liberals as colorblind,” he says in a hushed tone that conveys the quiet intensity of a low-key crusader. “We have finely tuned sensors for harm and injustice but are blind to other moral dimensions. Look at the way the word ‘wall’ is used in liberal discourse. It’s almost always related to the idea that we have to knock them down.”

Great minds...
