Bam! Heidegger!

I'm in the middle of a nightmarish load of homework, studying, and debate work, but managed to find enough time to waste reading this article about Liberty's debate team in the New York Times magazine:
"They pull the genocide card," one said, "we come back with Heidegger."
"Then blam, Erich Fromm."
"Right. Setting up an accusation of Holocaust triv."
"Holocaust what?" asked O'Donnell.
"Triv. Trivialization."
"Don't use shorthand," O'Donnell said. "Judges don't like it."
