Logical Fallacies that Should Exist

heh, found this tumblr funny as hell. There aren't many but they fit DC to a T.

http://logicalfallaciesthatshouldexist.tumblr.com/?og=1

Argument from moral outrage
  • If X is true, then it would be a perfect example of a thing that makes me angry
  • Therefore, X is true

Argument from inconvenient truth
  • If X is false, I will have to do something difficult, expensive, or annoying
  • I donít want to
  • Therefore, X is true

Argument from ability to bullshit
  • There is a subject A about which most people, including me, have very little knowledge
  • I can make up B about A that no one will understand
  • If B seems true, then X seems true
  • Therefore, X is true

Argument from impotent rage
  • If X is true, then a person I dislike might be correct about something
  • Knowing that a person I dislike might be right fills me with rage
  • Therefore, X is false

Argument from Solipsism
  • The whole world probably exists only in my mind
  • I think X is true
  • Therefore, X is true

Argument from baseless extrapolation
  • A is a past event
  • I have acknowledged expertise in explaining what events led to A
  • Therefore, my prediction of X is correct

Probably 50% of DC threads start with this premise.

What about this one:

* X does Y which is seemingly outrageous
* I've never really heard of X
* Therefore, Y is not really outrageous

Around here, we call that the "KC Native clause". Needs language inserted somewhere about tossing profanities at the disliked person.

I don't think that, but it would be no different than 'Obama does X therefore X is bad.'

Person X is an unknown. X says something controversial, therefore it doesn't matter. Unless X is a conservative in which case it does.

Keep trying.

I do appreciate how you tend to simply use the 'flat-out lie' technique.
