An idea that when your deepest convictions are challenged by contradictory evidence, your beliefs get stronger. Named for writer Gavin McInness who brought idea to mainstream.
Someone posted a video taken out of context of Donald Trump making fun of a disabled reporter . I then posted my own video of the entire conversation that proved trumps flailing was taken out of context and not directed towards anyone disabled, they then said I was wrong and something was wrong with me and then blocked me. Clearly the McInness effect is strong in this person .
