Every political party can be guilty of not respecting other people's opinion. Even I at times may be a little close minded when hearing different opinions. In order to be progressive, the first step would be to hear from all sides of a story equally to see what problems are on both sides. Having debates where one person may completely not answer your point of blatantly ignore it by calling you names or offended you personally is not helping anyone. There is a good chance you might not be able to convince someone to change their complete views by calling them bigoted or a cuck. No opinions are right, so it's a better idea to display them respectfully in hopes of convincing other people. (I am so sorry if this is written weird I'm so tired)
