Term coined by Kevin Buchik to refer to a statement given by Mykeru Media originally in reference to the social justice warriors of Atheism+ (though equally applicable to the Clown Car Posse, flat earthers, or any other internet hivemind):

Anything a detractor says will always be painted in the worst possible light.

Basically, this means that once one has been identified as a detractor or harsh critic of any group with strongly tribalistic beliefs, anything one does or says will always be interpreted in the worst way possible, so as to assassinate the character of the detractor while making the target group appear as victims.
