"conspiracy theorist" is the new racist... which itself was the new homophobe... which itself was the new misogynist... which itself was the new anti-semite. The left has always required labels to isolate, condemn and silence voices opposed to their power.

It is a logical fallacy!

Ad hominem attack: A personal attack argument attacks the person making the argument while ignoring the argument itself. A personal attack is not the same as an insult. Rather, a personal attack claims that there is something wrong with the person or group in order to cast doubt on their character and discredit their argument.

Lucky for them, their supporters are trained to be braindead, so they don't notice.

It's the old racist, since "that's just a Right Wing conspiracy theory" was used so much back in the Slick Willy days. It always drove me nuts that The Left would discount the argument this way, because while correlation does not equal causation, it doesn't mean you should stop loading.

That's right...and there is a direct connection to the fake news media. Tell 'em what you are going to tell them. Tell them. Tell them what you just told them. Buzz words, Slogans. Media runs on them.
