Facts are fine as long as you are not asking people hobbled by ideology to accept them.
Far too many people reject any fact that contradicts their ideology. If they don't reject the fact they reject the source of the fact as biased or lying.
When people start accusing anything that contradicts what they want to believe as a lie you know their mind is closed.
It has gotten to the point of being so ridiculous that it's not longer worth wasting breath on it. So, why am I wasting breath on it?
