Or to imply that, after all, it's "just their opinion," while one's own point of view, neither elaborated nor supported, is "obviously" so much more.
The intentional, greed-driven, narcissistic subversion of levels of public discourse and behavior (around the globe in this case and in the faces of millions) is indefensible on civilized terms.
Hint: anyone who'd like to defend it might start with Rousseau's empty claim that "Man is born free, but everywhere he is in chains." (Maybe he meant "norm-free.")
