I would hypothesise that, on a form dominated by mostly the Left you may get a small minority of emotional conservatives, and on a forum dominated mostly by those on the Right, you might get a small minority of emotional Leftists.
Not exactly sure what the reason for this is, but that is what it appears like.
Maybe if you have enough people on one side, you will get rational arguments, and the other side, if they are a minority, can't muster the intellectual strength to be able to address those arguments in a logical manner, so they start getting emotional.

On the issue of abortion, they again merely express an extreme dislike at the idea of infants getting murdered. Yet again, they are completely unable to offer a logical argument to prove that infanticide is actually wrong...again they rely purely on their feelings to say that abortion is morally wrong.
Now obviously the most bizarre facet of the illogic of conservatives, is that they seem to project this lack of logic onto their political opponents. You've heard them claim that liberals are illogical who can't think rationally. When a conservative make this claim, what he is actually doing is spewing forth psychological projection, which is a sign of weakness, insecurity, and dishonesty. Because as I've just shown above, they in fact have no rational arguments to support their own views.
Are conservatives incapable of rational argumentation?
