If you don’t stand for something, how can anyone respect what you do?
I will stand strong to defend people even if I don’t agree with them.
When you hear someone criticize a policy on the other side, that’s fine. But when you start hearing motive-mongering and demonization, stand up to it just as you would if it were something that was racist or sexist. If we avoid the demonization, disagreements can be positive.
