so long as they are within the bounds of community consensus.
Community consensus == lowest common denominator; # your actual goal

I will continue to downvote—and resent—all thought police posts and political hand waving.

    Actually, that's a gross mischaracterization of consensus. Consensus is actually a matter of greatest common denominator.

    Of course you should do what you think is right, but to claim you are waging some sort of battle against "thought police" in relation to me, and my posts here, is to put your agenda before reality. I have no police powers, and I have repeatedly said that people have the right to whatever opinions (thoughts) they feel are correct, and certainly the right to express them in a civil way.

    If you resent a call for civility, well, that's just a genuine point of disagreement between us, and no matter how much you resent that I have no way to change it. It is, for me, and as I understand it after study, the baseline consensus of our community. People should be able to express themselves, civilly, regardless of what they choose to express.

    I am genuinely sorry that we can't find any common ground, but so be it.
