Whilst I have experienced just a mild outbreak of this name calling, being called a denier for my postings on the false reporting and poor statistics that are used to justify the faith of the religion of global warming, others have fared far worse. Daniel Hannan "proved" himself evil by not paying homage to the NHS so it seems that the New Statesman's James Macintyre thought it entirely reasonable to call Dan Hannan a racist for his comments about Barack Obama. Of course James Macintyre had to go a step further and state that

Calling someone a "racist" is seen as an easy way of ending debate, no comeback is normally allowed. Calling someone a climate change "denier" is fast becoming the same discussion stopper; it must not be allowed to be.
