Refuting the Gish Gallop or Trump Tirade is a basic skill to bring any Troll to a dead stop. Learn it now.
If I were wrong, then one would have been enough!"
Here's an excerpt from the RationalWiki entry. Enjoy the power that clear understanding and dignified calm brings in the face of a complete load of shite.
Gish Gallops are almost always performed with numerous other logical fallacies baked in. The myriad of component arguments constituting the Gallop may typically intersperse a few perfectly uncontroversial claims — the basic validity of which are intended to lend undue credence to the Gallop at large — with a devious hodgepodge of half-truths, outright lies, red herrings and straw men — which, if not rebutted as the fallacies they are, pile up into egregious problems for the refuter.
There may also be escape hatches or "gotcha" arguments present in the Gallop, which are — like the Gish Gallop itself — specifically designed to be brief to pose, yet take a long time to unravel and refute.
However, Gish Gallops aren't impossible to defeat — just tricky (not to say near-impossible for the unprepared). Upon closer inspection, many of the allegedly stand-alone component arguments may turn out to be nothing but thinly-veiled repetitions or simple rephrasings of the same basic points — which only makes the list taller, not more correct (hence; "proof by verbosity"). This essential flaw in the Gallop means that a skilled rebuttal of one component argument may in fact be a rebuttal to many."
Stopping one means calmly and deliberately taking control of the rant. Here’s what I do, both online and in person.
Troll <insert load of shite here>
Me: “You finished?”
Troll <more load of shite winding down>
Me: You finished now?
Me: “You sure”
Me: “So, If I am clear on what you are saying (be sure to include this), everything is really just <polite libtard equivalent> fault? Yes?
Troll “Yes. and <more repetitive shite staring up>”
Me: (Cutting troll off) : Yes, of course we’ve heard all that, just a moment ago I clearly asked you if you were completely finished and you said yes, twice. So let's move on to my response to your assertion that “Everything is <polite libtard equivalent> fault.” You are aware that <pick the most egregious piece of shite> just doesn’t make sense in light of <basic everyone wil agree simplistic fundamental patriotic principle based language item(s)>?
Troll: <Changes subject>
Me: Please answer my simple question. (repeat as necessary).
