Uncle Adolf Syndrome or UAS for short is a mental condition whereby the sufferer displaces guilt from the innocent to the guilty to protect the guilty. Typically a parent or teacher will blame a child for being unkind or rude for asking a pertinent question about an adult which questions their morality or correctness in some way.
Adolf's nephew asks "Is it really a good idea to use cyanide gas to kill Jews Uncle Adolf?" His mother, suffering from Uncle Adolf Syndrome, snaps "Don't be so rude Jonny. How could you upset Uncle Adolf when he is so kind stroking his dog."
