These idiots hate new guy so much because they've built so many arguments on the narrative that everyone who opposes them is a vitriolic, hateful, inhuman monster. A Horrible nazi, transphobe, bigot, etc, that would rather they don't even exist.
So when people respond to their vitriol with patience and kindness, it hurts that narrative, and it scares the shit out of them. After all, people only let them get away from their bullshit because they're only hurting heartless, inhuman nazis, right? But once everyone realizes thats not the case, its over for them. No more treating people like absolute shit for perceived wrongthink and indiscretions, they'll lose their favorite pastime.
