Example of "Moving the Goalposts" provided by my dear friend Ashliy at the Burn Notice

This shows that we need to stand up against all right wing tropes and cliches, just not the really specific ones, but even the smaller ones that are logical fallacies, especially the ones that are logical fallacies. This particular fallacy has also been aimed at Deedra Abboud, who is a progressive who wants to run against Jeff Flake, we need to stand up for her. Ashliy thinks she can find similar statements by other people providing more 'lovely' comments aimed at Miss Abboud and post them every once in a while.

Statement by one person (1): "Muslims are diverse, not 1.8 billion people sharing one brain!"

Response by second person (2): -Like 2 see some of those 1.8 M speak out against the Radical Islamists once in a great while.Otherwise,it looks like "1 brain" in agreement

Response by third person to second person (3): there ya go james (Displays picture of protest against ISIS)

Response by second person to third person: -(1/2)That is a good step! That happened in the United Kingdom! And yes, no one reporyed on that here! When is @deedra2018 going to organize

---

Analysis: Notice how it "is a good step", no admission of it debunking his saying it looking like it being "1 brain in agreement", also notice his new demand of person (1) personally now needs to be involved in these protests.
