Refraction (Bent Thinking) #51

Reductio ad Hitlerium (playing the Nazi card) – comparing an opponent or their argument to Hitler or Nazism in an attempt to associate a position with one that is universally reviled. Refutation: This is just a specific type of Argument to the Man. Arguments are like math problems.  It makes no difference who presents them – they stand or fall on their own merit. Example  – Obama is taking away our liberties. He is no different than Hitler when he took liberties away from those who opposed him. His next step will be concentration camps. Side Note: Comparing a leader to Hitler is about the worst thing one can do. Its purpose is to irrationally stir up emotions.
