And the mode of responding to the points being made is much the same as well. Accuse any critics of holding a strawman position, use that to justify your arguments. Its like being critical of Israel's policy on Palestine and automatically having someone accuse you of being an anti-Semite.

Some people - usually demagogues - will distort your position no matter what you say. One particular YT 'discussion' I have is with someone who accuses me of being a 'kike' because, really bizarrely, I state that I abhor the violence, inhumane treatment, and shocking repression the state of Israel employs on Palestinians.

Some people can't even listen to what you say - they've already practiced their responses to a completely different position, so they don't want to waste time coming up with a new argument to address yours, easier just to keep rehearsing the precanned one.
