    They can't engage in legitimate discussion with the left, so when anyone on our side brings up an issue, they automatically assume we are "whining" or "complaining" and feeling like a victim in our own personal situation.

    Do you remember at the height of Occupy Wall Street - all these chain emails and facebook memes ridiculing the OWS protestors by painting them as lazy whiners? All those "Get a job and work hard like I did!" comments. They assumed that every protestor was an out-of-work loser. They just don't comprehend that someone might be worried about others' well-being, and take up that cause for the greater good.
