    A form of Black and White Insanity where one character's opinion is based almost solely on being opposed to an evil character's (as opposed to Hitler Ate Sugar: if an evil character likes it it must be bad).

    For example, in Discworld/Jingo Vimes is certain that an attempted assassination on a Klatchian prince was done by Ankh-Morpork and badly disguised as a Klatchian attempt to start a war between both nations, because to admit the Klatchians did it would be to agree with the incompetent, racist and jingoistic dumbasses that are Ankh-Morpork's military minds (and this is actually spelled out at the end).

      IIRC wasn't that case more "it looked so incompetent Vimes assumed it was a setup, which is exactly what was expected (since he was the one they needed to fool to get away with the assassination)" and not "Vimes didn't want to agree with the idiots".

      Either way, it's still Hitler Ate Sugar, just on an individual level. Or perhaps Jerkass Has a Point / Dumbass Has a Point.

      The line is
      You couldn't bring yourself to think the Klatchians might have done it. Because that'd line you up with the likes of Sergeant Colon and all the rest of the Klatchian-fags-are-made-of-camel-dung brigade.
