You could engage substantively, or on the other hand dismiss as yapping, blather or stupid looking accurate observation of the distance between what words mean and how cynical people misuse them in order to deceive. That others note this doesn't indicate that they don't understand other important aspects of the controversy.

Accepting deceptions and worrying about what you think of as looking stupid surely doesn't keep anything from being banned now, deprives the public conversation of the dissent that may prompt inquisitive people to discover the deception, and may be taken as agreement with the deception. Good faith conversation should not substitute myopic or shallow judgment for exploration of the topic.
