Contrarian Argument Fallacy Abuse


 
 

Contrarian Argument Fallacy Abuse

Contrarian Argument Fallacy Abuse occurs when a bandwagon fallacy is defended by labeling those who disagree as contrarians and accusing them of the contrarian argument fallacy. This is an example of a fallacy fallacy, a bandwagon fallacy, marginalizing, appeal to tradition, and an ad hominem fallacy. Rather than examining all sides of the issue, one side is defined as true because the majority supports it. Just because most scientists, most theologians, or most lawyers believe something, that doesn’t make it true. Every true breakthrough in technology comes from someone thinking something new.

Examples of Contrarian Argument Fallacy Abuse

uu-uno.org: "Fallacious claims of  climate contrarians /deniers /faux-skeptics along with attacks by the right-wing media and the fossil fuel industry against climate risk management actions and climate science are exposed below"

The label is designed to marginalize and intimidate. It is a form of pressure. "Anyone who disagrees with us is a contrarian." This fallacy abuse is pretty well limited to attacks against anyone who opposes global warming politics.
