rationality implies tolerance

The basic premise of rationality is listening to other people’s arguments (or reality’s realness) to develop your reasons. In listening, you must make space for arguments from which to consider alternative realities or models.

Once someone is assured of their rationality to the extent they are intolerant or blind, it is no longer rationality, but belief, which is irrational.
