I post stuff on Facebook. My liberal friends put links to Fact Checking sites like Snopes. And I offer proof that Snopes are liberals, and their fact checking is suspect. But, they just tell me that I'm stupid. So, how do you deal with this?
You have all the evidence on your side. You site your evidence, and then they make out that you are the bad guy. You are the one who ends up defending yourself. So, how do you deal with this?
The answer is: "You don't." The answer is, "You ignore it." The answer is, "You stay above it." The answer is, "You stay on offense."
You can stay on offense by asking them to list facts. Not just link to other sites. Ask then to name names. Ask them to offer evidence. And this is only if you want to take the challenge. This is only if you want to play with them. Do not engage them thinking you will change their minds, because you won't. If you engage them, do it for fun.
If someone is going to be that stupid, you aren't going to get through to them. All it's going to do is get you upset. So, it's best just to let them go on in their ignorance.
Usually, if I feel I have to say something, I leave one fact and then I never look back again.
Let me word this another way. "Never get into an argument with a fool because after a while no one can tell who's who."
I think there's truth to that saying.
My liberal friends think I put stuff on my Facebook to irritate them. So, they attack me. And, usually they attack me personally. I'm a Nazi. I'm a racist. Or, sometimes I'm just stupid.
But, the real reason I put stuff on Facebook is for my kids. I want my kids to know what I think. And I want my kids to know the facts. So, that's why, if someone says something that is completely not true, I say something. And I leave it at that.
If you feel the need to debate them, stay on offence. Do not start defending your position. State facts if you need to. But, ask them to name names. Ask then to prove their position. Have them show you why you are a racist if you want to enforce the law and defend your country. Make them show how much they don't know.
Make sure they are aware they are just emoting. Rather than using facts, they are using emotion. And then you shame them for being so uninformed. Show them how their attitudes are putting our country at risk, making it more dangerous, etc.
You are dealing with arrogant and condescending people here. But, they are arrogant in their ignorance. They feel they are superior to you. You are inferior to them. So, they think they don't have to prove anything. They are just right.
You are dealing with legitimate ignorant people here. They don't even know it. They don't even know what liberalism is. You know more than they do about their own liberalism. You know it' socialism. They have no clue. So, when you note facts, you are insulting them. You are shaming them. That's why they get so offensive and mad. And when they do, you win. Walk away satisfied.
These people think they are morally superior. They think they are right you no matter what you say will convince them otherwise, even if you state facts. They don't care about facts anyway. All liberalism is is emoting. They see a problem, and the solution is to say, "I feel your pain. I will solve your problem by creating a program someone else pays for."
Keep the high ground. Don't go on defense. Ask them for facts. Make them state their case. And then poke holes in it. Keep asking them questions. Put them on the spot. Their whole purpose for arguing with you is to make themselves look morally superior to you. So, don't fall for their trap by staying on offense.
Do not take the position where you feel like you have to defend yourself. Stay on offence. If they get angry, you win. Walk away. Be done with them. And do not ever apologize. State Facts. Take the high road. Stay on offense. Ask them to show evidence. Shame them. Walk away.
