Why were the Coercive Acts also called the Intolerable Acts?

Answers

Answer:

The Coercitive Acts were also called the Intolerable Acts because the colonists considered that both the taxes they imposed, and the treatment that the British government carried out on the colonies, could not be tolerated and should be faced.

Explanation:

The Intolerable Acts was the name that part of the inhabitants of the Thirteen Colonies gave to the five laws adopted by the British Parliament in 1774. The laws were mainly aimed at strengthening the role of Great Britain in the management of American colonies. Four of the five laws were in response to Boston Tea Party. Using these laws, the king and parliament intended to stop the growing resistance movement in the colonies. However, these measures only aggravated the situation, since the colonists considered them a despotic violation of their rights.

Britain hoped to isolate Massachusetts' radicals and force the colonies to recognize the supremacy of Parliament over local elected bodies. The risky move, however, turned against it. The severity of new laws pushed even moderate colonists, and there were fewer votes in favor of Parliament. On the contrary, sympathy for Massachusetts grew and prompted the previously isolated colonies to convene the First Continental Congress, and then to the formation of the Continental Association to boycott British goods, and if this does not help to abolish acts, then stop exporting to the UK. Finally, Congress announced the mutual support of the colonies, which in the future meant their joint actions during  the American Revolution.

They were meant to punish the Massachusetts colonists for their defiance in throwing a large tea shipment into Boston Harbor.
