  •  It is called the backfire effect. Look it up. (4+ / 0-)

    It is a phenomenon that happens as soon as you disprove a conservative lie or a conservative error, they will insist YOU are wrong and believe even more strongly and dig their heels in believing in the lie or the error that they believed in the first place.

That is why Movement Con(servative) can be considered extremely insane.
