If the ever-irascible Scott Pierce has been watching “Queer Eye” on Netflix, he surely knows that a running theme of the series, “If you can talk to someone and meet in the middle, you can learn about each other and help each other both grow.”

Yet he trashes “Queer Eye” star Karamo Brown for stating this ideal in the context of his co-starring with Sean Spicer on the new season of “Dancing with the Stars.”

Is this the world Pierce wants to live in, attacking people for trying to be peacemakers? For trying to understand someone with an opposing view and, in the process of listening, perhaps open doors?

If we keep treating everyone we disagree with like s---, well, that’s where we are today, isn’t it?
