If you look a bit closer, it's always a move made after the point in the conversation where one of two things happen:

1) The two disagree and cannot adequately convince the other of their point of view. The goon is unable to live and let live and gets a brain worm over it.

2) The goon is blown the fuck out and loses the argument so badly he is embarrassed into silence. It is easier to sever than to be friends with someone who truly challenges you mentally or philosophically.

When #2 happens it can feel bad, but if you want to truly discuss something intellectually you have to be ready to encounter smarter people and give yourself room to reconsider things and mentally grow. There's never the point where the goon says "I never considered it that way, or considered the view point of the other side. I should learn more." Socrates said "I know one thing; that I know nothing", Goons say "I know everything, my media tells me so. This guy must be an alt-right nazi."
