"You're discrediting this....*sob*" cognitive dissonance. When the authoritarian play failed - when that councilwoman just drove through it - she reverted to crying tactics. This is JP's criticism of the far left - they teach these people these concepts as absolutes and give them license thereby to always be the "educated one" imposing a cultural marxist worldview on everyone around them. First it's a virtue blanket, and once a position of authority is reached it becomes a cudgel. But, as you can see, because these people were never equipped for challenge, they crumble into a childlike state very quickly when opposed by forceful rational argument. That usually manifests as hysterical behavior of some kind - typically what looks like an emotional breakdown that may or not be violent.
