It's a rhetorical tactic. Both sides use it.
People in general use it. Arguing about semantics is the last resort of someone who refuses to accept that they might be wrong.
Why isn't it important to look at what people actually say and the context in which they say it?
I think "playing semantics" tends to be an excuse by people losing an argument to get out of the argument without dealing with it whatsoever.
It all depends on what you mean by "semantics".

Thesaurians are the worst.
