The First Liberal Argument: S. I. N.
Those of us who debate the left regularly know that substantive genuine arguments with them are rare. Since we already covered what their last argument is, let us cover their first.
The left’s opening tactics often boil down to a simple acronym S. I. N.
Switch the Subject: They bring up one point and as soon as they can see you are about to answer it with substance they change the subject, start making it all about you instead of the fact at hand, or they move the goal post (EG you cant prove this, oh OK you proved that but you cant prove this, OK you got that but you cant prove…).
Ignore the Facts: This is very common. No matter how many facts you bring up a common tactic is to go on with their narrative as if you never posted and presented them with that fact in the first place. When confronted with facts they will : Switch the subject, attack you, or just repeat what they said before without ever acknowledging you gave them a fact to begin with.
Name Call: You are ignorant, uneducated etc etc. You just hate X and Y. You are a racist bigot sexist homophobe etc.

The lefts campaign and tactical playbook – “Rules for Radicals” by Saul Alinsky, is dedicated to Satan himself by the author:
“Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: From all our legends, mythology and history (and who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins — or which is which), the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom — Lucifer.”
