It seems to me you're stoking that fire as well.

@Real Music,
The clapping is brilliant. It's a clapping style that's quite important in the Middle-Eastern folkloric dance world. Our group spent months learning to do it right. Our larger dance circle is over the moon with joy. Finally, our clapping is getting some love.

How? Don't I discuss issues? If I describe something that is negative, I explain why. If I criticize socialism, for example, it is to understand and discuss socialism with its proponents; not to ridicule them into exile or extinction.

Democracy is supposed to be a forum for reasonable discussion, not a competition for winners to eliminate losers from the discussion. People like Bernie Sanders and Ocasio-Cortez represent other people who believe in socialism for whatever reason, so we have to engage them in discussion to respect their thinking and goals while explaining why we want to solve problems without socialism because of the reasons socialism is bad.

Shouldn't proponents of socialism listen to those who are against it and respect them instead of just dismissing them and trying to overpower their dissent with political maneuvers?

Well, as in your case, a discussion about how Nancy Pelosi claps at a SOTU address has morphed into a side discussion about socialism. It's a fine example you gave in how dismissing and overpowering with political maneuvers is quite frequently used.

What exactly did you enter into this thread to discuss then?

@livinglava,
To see if you're going to spontaneously blow up over clapping. Which, you haven't answered yet...

That's a stupid obnoxious reason to enter into a thread discussion. It's trolling.

@livinglava,
It's a reasonable question to counteract a troll post to begin with.

I think we're equal.

There is nothing trolling about this thread. There was a very interesting news article about Pelosi's applause, which you can google. It's a legitimate issue of political-expression culture.
