It is faulty logic. I've written about the use of faulty logic previously and it's promotion as a means of deception. Refresh or read for the first time at the link directly below. I've included the final paragraphs from the previous post!
The logical fallacy of “blowback”. Intoxication with the blowback mind virus
"Either way? - We have a problem with those we allow to lead us and it is not incompetence. It is evil. Pure evil, manifesting itself in the most horrific anti-human activities imaginable then hiding their criminality behind spin. To break free of this toxic, evil, psychopathic leadership we need to first rid ourselves of this blowback mind virus. Detox or cleanse it from our own brain and stop infecting others with this intoxicant!
Intoxicant- Anything taken into a body by one mean or another that produces a condition of diminished mental and physical ability, hyperexcitability, or stupefaction"
I've noticed the blowback meme getting much use the last week and it's worrisome.

Begging the Question is a fallacy in which the premises include the claim that the conclusion is true or (directly or indirectly) assume that the conclusion is true. This sort of "reasoning" typically has the following form.
- Premises in which the truth of the conclusion is claimed or the truth of the conclusion is assumed (either directly or indirectly).
- Claim C (the conclusion) is true.
