* Jim Gaffigan has a bit about this. He claims that his skin is so white and pale that strangers will come up to him and tell him racist jokes. "Gee, thanks for reminding me I look like Hitler's wet dream."

* In [[Franchise/TheDCU DC]]'s {{Elseworld}}s' ''ComicBook/TheGoldenAge'', Al Pratt, The Atom, is among those stunned to learn that the would-be icon Dyna-Man, the former Dan The Dyna-Mite, is not at all who he seems. Pratt, who has never questioned the ever more sinister tone of the movement he's been in, is complimented by Dyna-Man, saying he would have made a perfect Nazi. Note that Pratt was a member of the ComicBook/JusticeSocietyOfAmerica and had been actively fighting the Nazis in WorldWarII.

It's especially prevalent in the book [[spoiler: Literature/TheLincolnLawyer when he finds out his client, Roulet, is an extremely sadistic serial killer. Roulet congratulates Mickey on the great job he's doing in court, but Mickey is just filled with disgust with each comment]].

** There's a straight version in the same book, involving Percy, who had walked out on his family in favor of supporting the corrupt Ministry. After Ron is made prefect (which he did not want in the first place), Percy sends him a letter of congratulations, saying that "I must admit that I have always been afraid that you would take what we might call the 'Fred and George' route, rather than following in my footsteps, so you can imagine my feelings on hearing you have stopped flouting authority and have decided to shoulder some real responsibility." He then advises Ron to "sever ties with Potter" as "nothing could put you in danger of losing your badge more than continued fraternisation with that boy." Ron immediately tears it up, saying "[[PunctuatedForEmphasis he is -- the world's -- biggest -- git]]".

* In ''[[Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire A Dance with Dragons]]'', Roose Bolton tells Theon Greyjoy that the Boltons could never have taken Winterfell without Theon's efforts. Theon takes this to mean that it's all his fault that his home is gone and his former TrueCompanions are dead (because it is). Throughout the book, other members of the Boltons' entourage make similar statements. [[spoiler: This ultimately contributes to Theon's decision to help rescue Jeyne Poole.]]

* Played for laughs on ''Series/TheRedGreenShow''. On the rare occasions when Red does something that his nephew Harold is proud of him for, he's typically even more ashamed than he was in the first place. The same is usually also true whenever it's the other way around. For example, Red and the rest of the lodge members wanted to butcher and eat a cow that one of the member inherited. However, none of them could bring themselves to actually kill the cow, leading to this exchange:

** The 2016 Presidential general election became this, as neither Trump nor Clinton polled above 50% of the popular votes, it was not uncommon to hear voters explain that, while they hated the candidate they voted for, they only did so because they hated the one they didn't vote for more.


Added DiffLines:

** It's not uncommon in Presidential elections with an open seat (i.e. the incumbent has reached term limit or is not running again) for the candidate of the incumbent party to try and minimize any relations with the actual incumbent. Since the former scenario is far more likely to happen, it's often because the general mood of the country is eight years of the incumbent is enough, even if you support the party. This is because the opposition party will usually tie all the problems of the President onto the nominee, whether it's deserved or not, and the Presidential election is normally determined by swing voters, who tend be more susceptible to problems with previous administrations. Tellingly, in the past century, the incumbent party achieved a third term exactly three times (Harding-Coolige-Hoover(R 1921-1933), Roosevelt-Truman(D 1945-1953, 5 terms between the two of them), and Regan-Bush(R 1981-1993, only streak during this time without a death in office)).

* In ''ComicBook/{{Preacher}}'', when Jesse is about to defeat and kill Jody, Jody tells Jesse that he's proud of him. (Keep in mind that Jody killed Jesse's father in front of a young Jesse and then made Jesse's childhood a living Hell, as per the wishes of Jesse's incredibly [[EvilOldFolks evil grandmother.) Jesse seems less ashamed and more royally pissed.
