Bigger issue is that the real world also has few places in which civil discourse between those on each side takes place.

This place is the worst around for it ... yeah you see this coming... except for all the others.

Reality is that it tends to be some of (not all of) the more highly educated who want to have that civil intelligent discussion with effort made to understand why the other believes what they do. And that more highly educated group has a liberal and Democratic bias. There are fewer intellectual conservatives than in days past and fewer of them who are in the Trump camp even if they vote for him for the sake of their agenda. Overwhelmingly (but not completely) Trump supporters are of lower educational levels and with an anti-intellectual bent.

Liberals here benefit from having conservative voices speaking here. But that does not equal a free pass for a conservative to pass off crap as argument and whine that posters were mean when called on it.
