This is why conservatives don’t tend to express the same emotional hostility as the Left; a deeper grasp of the world’s complexity has the effect of encouraging intellectual humility. The conservative hears the progressive’s latest demands and says, “I can see how you might come to that conclusion, but I think you’ve overlooked the following…” In contrast, the progressive hears the conservative and thinks, “I have no idea why you would believe that. You’re probably a racist.”I've mentioned this before but the local PBS station had a "dialogue" on race that was anything but. The white audience members absolutely refused to offer a comment or question since they knew there was 100% probability of being called a racist. Why bother?
