And since one of the prime ideologies for them is anti-intilectualism, facts dont matter. They dont use resaoned debate, they dont respond to facts, they argue from faith, like a religion, and their faith is hate. You cant give them a platform because they NEVER speak in good faith. Dismantling them with facts is pointless, because the people they are really reaching for when they get a platform, don't respond to facts. As Jean-Paul Sartre so well put. Never believe that anti-Semites are completely unaware of the absurdity of their replies. They know that their remarks are frivolous, open to challenge. But they are amusing themselves, for it is their adversary who is obliged to use words responsibly, since he believes in words. The anti-Semites have the right to play. They even like to play with discourse for, by giving ridiculous reasons, they discredit the seriousness of their interlocutors. They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press them too closely, they will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument is past. THey know how stupid and easily contradicted their arguments are, they dont care, thats not why they are up on the platform, they are fishing.
