Another classic tactic used in partisan politics.


The Gish Gallop is the fallacious debate tactic of drowning your opponent in a flood of individually-weak arguments in order to prevent rebuttal of the whole argument collection without great effort. The Gish Gallop is a conveyor belt-fed version of the on the spot fallacy, as it's unreasonable for anyone to have a well-composed answer immediately available to every argument present in the Gallop. The Gish Gallop is named after creationist Duane Gish, who often abused it.

Just make whatever you claim in the short-term and move onto the next. Facts be damned, ya know? It's about locking in that attention, setting that doubt, then move on as if it was never a significant issue in the first place. Classic stuff I tell ya, and certainly nothing new in Trump world as we can see at this very moment with this voter fraud nonsense.

Throw everything and anything until it sticks. That's what we're reduced to now, apparently.

And we're supposed to take him seriously?

Blah blah blah blah....

Add some crappy links and a bad meme...


Then you say...


And we're supposed to take him seriously?


It is a lot easier to take him seriously then it is to take you seriously.

After all, your own OP is a classic example of a Gish Gallop.

From the OP...

Oh the irony....

Why do you care what anyone against Biden has to say?

You evil leftists, you authoritarians won.

Why not enjoy the win unless you want to continue to prohibit free expression.

Using "gish gallop" in a sentence is only permitted if your username is Phage.
Otherwise it sounds pathetic, not nerd-cool.

Thread topic voided on account of You Ain't Phage. NEXT.

You spelled Trump wrong. It's spelled Democrats... and just in case you haven't been paying attention,
[ or very selectively ]
the Democrats have been doing exactly that since 2016.

So you are accusing Trump of doing what you are doing on this website?

This is classic.

The biggest problem for you. No matter how you crunch the data the math keeps spitting out the answer “Fraud”.

People lie but numbers do not.

I clicked on the op and was disappointed by the author immediately.
Next time I click, I will check the author first.
This dude was equally annoying trolling with his Antidilluvian account.

There are zero employed adults voting for Biden.

As expected, the first wave of the MAGA mob are here. I'll give it a few more hours to simmer down.

Be careful of those torches folks.... You may burn yourselves if you hover around each other like that for too long.

Your post demonstrates the typical traits of the TDS troll leftist/dem/whatever.

Several lessons in the following:

Projection
Deflection
Manipulation

And in this case, a Master's class in Irony and Hypocrisy.
Extra credit for a clear demonstration of lack of self awareness as well.

Is it worth the effort to put forth your diatribes of tripe, knowing how rotten in origin they are, before you spew them here on these boards?

Are there no auspicious feelings before posting?
Do you really believe these things you say?

Lol don't forget the trait of knowing absolutely EVERYTHING...and they'll tell you all about it. Hubris to the extreme, yet put it all on other people. I've concluded they have to be smart to act that stupid, or they really are that stupid...either way it's easy to see them for what they are.

We already know about fire on the right.

Unlike the left...



So go sobsterbate for a bit and come back to your current failthread.

seems that the responses to this thread are more about the actual poster rather than the content

ALL politicians (trump/biden/Johnson/farage/corbyn) use the tactic of gish galloping, if you believe otherwise then you have had the wool well and truly pulled over your eyes, they are all full of hot air with little substance

Pretty much.

It's a good way to know whether or not the MAGA crowd agrees. In this case they do, given their wild attempts at deflection and character assassination. No denial of the gish gallop. They're probably happy to take anything they can get.

We've got some new fresh gish gallop by the way:

Trump’s team have German servers, raw data, warn of violence as bombshells will be released

How many 'bombshells' are we waiting for now?

The Trump cult rambles on into delusionary wishful thinking and self-deception.

The method of a master self-deceiver, Trump, is that he deceives others with his delusions and crooked thinking...

It's really a phenomenon the world faces now and then with Hitlerian-like leaders who deceive and rule by ego.

Only the American democratic system has exposed this evil and will defeat it.
