Do Liberals Never Argue from Good Faith? (Public Board)

IOW: are liberals today just plain lying game playing cunts?

I believe the qualified empirical answer to this question is "yes" in the present day 2020. In other words liberals today consistently disregard facts of record, evidence of personal character or the lack of it, and matters of conscience in their argumentation. They focus on destruction of people or institutions they dislike and hold up nebulous new/emerging causes as the only principles to be discussed.

I think it's been this way since perhaps the start of the first Obama term. Prior to that, if you recall, conservatives and Republicans seemed to virtue signal incessantly about patriotism and the need for the American Century and in favor of sacrifice of others as the greatest good.

In 2004 conservatives were the lying self righteous cunts. Liberals were the somewhat oppressed truth tellers.

Today:

The main difference I see in argumentation styles between the two is logic and reason.

Generally, a well formed argument from a conservative is fairly concisely stated, usually involves only a few core principles or ideas, and is easy to understand.

An argument or a response to argument from a liberal always seems to involve personality destruction and blame shifting as tactics. Intersectional logic (IE: kissing the ass more fervently the closer it is to a collection of minorities or oppressed groups) and adjacency of an idea or a person to an undesired and nominally bad belief or person results in immediate blame ("JOE ROGAN A NAZI FOR INTERVIEWING RICHARD SPENCER REEE".)

Facts that a liberal uses in a contentious argument are often deliberately skewed, cherry picked, originate from sources with the same agenda, and/or are fabrications.

I've been observing the arguments that user Morons, a conservative poster on Iritu, makes to the idiots over there. All of their arguments come down to "Morons is stupid and a Nazi". If they don't want to entertain a fact he quotes they just call him an asshole.

We here would at least fact check the assertion as long as it wasn't a self evidently stupid leftie trope.
