SCAPEGOATING

This often use with Guilt-by-association to deflect scrutiny away from the issues. It transfers blame to one person or group of people without investigating the complexities of the issue. Examples: "George W. Bush got us into Iraq", "President Reagan caused the national debt".

AD HOMINEM ATTACK

This is the propaganda of deflection. It's achieved by attacking the messenger, instead of the argument or evidence that is presented.

TU QUOQUE ATTACK

This technique is when you respond to your opponent by accusing them of committing a logical fallacy or propaganda technique instead of addressing the claim of your opponent's argument and evidence. Ex. "You too are using fear as a propaganda technique".
