Those people aren't making a serious argument. And their opinion isn't going to change. You should ignore them.

It's actually the moderate people who you should address. And "you" have to be careful not to assume they hold a position they don't hold. Otherwise, you are establishing that you aren't listening to their comments and make it pointless for them to take you seriously. All that moderates are likely to see is that "you" think they are the ones yelling at you.

Which means you should ignore these people.
