> Personally I'm in agreement with Popper's view that societies should tolerate everything except intolerance.

This is incorrect. Popper does not say intolerance should not be permitted, he said that we should not extend unlimited tolerance, and he expands by saying that only intolerance that cannot be countered by rational debate should be impermissible. Clearly escalation to violence is a form of intolerance that cannot be countered by rational debate but it's not clear at all what else should fall under this criteria.

This is clearly a very different claim that does not support your narrative, and instead, shows how your view is just another form of intolerance that we should oppose.
