A circular argument

Norther Ireland's Finance Minister, Democratic Unionist MP, Sammy Wilson, is in hot water again. He was previously criticised when, as environment minister, he denied that humans were responsible for global warming.

Mr. Wilson has accused anti-racism groups of exaggerating the scale of the racism to gain public funding. He claimed there was an "anti-racism industry". In return he has been accused by the Northern Ireland Council for Ethnic Minorities of playing into the hands of racists.

Irrespective of the merits of each side of the case I do detect a bit of a circular argument in these exchanges.
