And I've been called a hypocrite, whose arguments are so plainly ignorant
of the issues and basic logic that they can be dismissed out of hand
without any thought, an immoral moocher, and the promises I've made are
dismissed as unimportant products of my inability to read.

I'm not sure why people in this debate seem to think that only whichever
side they support is able to make cogent points, and why they also seem to
think that only the remarks of the opposite side are insulting, demeaning
offensive, and undeserved. Maybe we're all this dense.
