    those more capable of logic and critical thinking are also more capable of empathy.

    What passes for "logic" from the right is a kind of "internal logic" that's more of a closed loop. It may appear to be analytical and not letting emotions cloud judgment, but there's nothing logical about lacking empathy IMO. It's not really an "appeal to pity" fallacy to show empathy.

    Right-wing "logic" in reality is more like dogmatism that doesn't allow for nuance or counter-examples. A lot of times in their worldview there are no counterexamples.

    liberal bias = failure to validate or sufficiently flatter the conservative narrative on any given subject
