      They just don't care - reality isn't important to them.  To acknowledge a fact that challenges their beliefs would not, to their way of thinking, delegitimize those beliefs - it would invalidate the truth and the "lying eyes" of the person who sees it.  Authoritarianism is a very common mental defect, and endemic among conservatives.
