Virtue Signaling

If you want to cheese off the left, just talk about Virtue Signaling and that some of that virtue is not exactly the moral high ground. Talk about problems in some groups that the left thinks are protected ([[Racism, Sexism, Homophobia))], talk about bad behavior of the MeToo movement, Fake Hate crimes, Real Hate crimes against conservatives, Fake News and how the lefts sources have a bias/agenda, or anything that contradicts leftist dogma, and you're likely to get a reaction that isn't one of thoughtful introspection or moderation.

Issue Lie Truth
Virtue Signaling Minorities and the left have the moral high ground. The right isn't just uninformed, they're evil, racist, sexist, misogynist bullies that want to "Make America Great Again", by reversing all the wins of the left like Civil Rights, Feminism, gun-control, progressive taxes, education, and so on. Politics isn't just about different ways to make things better, it's about right and wrong, and the other side isn't right. Society wins when society is ready to make new laws or oppose old ones: not because of the laws themselves, but because of the will of the people to live up to them them. (And not before). Most of the "win's" of the left, were not clear wins, certainly not because of the left alone, and certainly not because they were pure. Virtue Signaling is about getting attention, virtue itself is about silent action.
