"Calling out" - Obama supporters use Maoist techniques to stifle debate (26 apr 13)

"Calling out" is a term used among left-wingers in America. It means "I disagree with you but I can't explain why, so I'm going to try to make you feel ashamed of your views".

Up 'til now, it's mostly been used to 'name and shame' people who don't agree with the dominant paradigm on race, sex, etc.. Now some of Obama's red guards are going to try to use it to silence those who think the evidence for harmful, unprecedented, man-made global warming is less than overwhelming:
