Godwin’s Law

Description

Godwin’s Law isn’t really a logical fallacy itself, but it is a subset of the Strawman Argument. At its core, a Godwin (internet shorthand), was named after a Wikipedia attorney who stated that ” “As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches 1.”

In other words, as an online discussion, regardless of the topic, gets more comments and goes on longer, eventually someone will make reference to Nazism or Hitler. The Godwin is used regardless of relevance or understanding of actual history.

Example

“The very arguments used by today’s vaccine pushers to claim that the government should force everyone to be vaccinated against their will closely resemble the eugenics justifications of Nazi Germany.” Thank you Natural News for making my point.
