  •  "No True Scotsman" -- thanks for that (1+ / 0-)

    somehow I'd missed that phrase (and the logic behind it).

    Oddly, in this context, the group which it is used for the most in my experience (by orders of magnitude) is Muslims. "No true Muslim would kill innocent civilians." "No true Muslim would blow up a [Shiite] mosque containing Qurans." "Those terrorists, they're not real Muslims." Etc.  The 'un-American' label used to be more common, in the 1950s-60s, but seems less-common now.
