Top definition
The process of utterly obliterating an opponent's entire (usually religious or political) argument, usually in one or more succinct or terse statements, orally or in writing; employed almost exclusively by Christopher Hitchens.

Examples can be found in nearly every Hitchens debate, occasionally in articles, and in the form of entire books, about subjects or people.
Christopher Hitchen's book God Is Not Great was effectively one long Hitchslap to organized religion.

About twenty minutes into the debate Dinesh d'Souza got Hitchslapped and never really recovered from it.

Hitchens was a guest in a Fox News segment the other day. He Hitchslapped just about everyone on there.

It was funny the other day when Sean Hannity invited Hitchens on the show and tried to be a smartass, but was abruptly Hitchslapped for his trouble.

The inevitable outcome of arguing against renowned author, journalist and anti-theist Christopher Hitchens

The Hitchslap is dispensed usually to morons such as Sean Hannity and Bill OReilly. His 2007 Hitchslap against Sean Hannity on "Hotseat" was made even more entertaining due to the fact that Hitchens was quite obviously drunk at the time, and still made Hannity look like a tool.
Hannity -

"To be an atheist, you have to believe that it is possible, which I think is a far greater leap of faith, that something can be created out of nothing. When you look at the majesty and sophistication, and the intricacy of the universe that we do know and comprehend. You have to believe that somehow this energy could have existed on its own, and i do not believe that, that to me is a leap of faith "


"You give me the awful impression, i hate to have to say it, of someone who hasn't read any of the arguments against your position ever. You want your god to take personal responsibility for the huge number of collapsing stars and imploding galaxies and destroyed universes and failed solar systems that have left us in this tiny corner, on the one planet on this petty solar system that can support life on some of its surface for some of the time. You want a creator who filled this earth with species, 99% of which are now extinct already"

Everyone else -

"oh my god what a fucking Hitchslap!"
