Shoehorning means pretending the facts fit your personal agenda when they don't. For example:

  1. Christian Conservatives shoehorn the teachings of Jesus into their political system ignoring Liberal parts of the New Testament.
  2. Shoehorning political opponents into Nazism and/or Fascism is so frequent Godwin's law was developed to describe it.
  3. The beliefs of Liberals and Social Democrats who both value democratic Freedom are shoehorned into Totalitarian Communism.
  4. Marxists shoehorn a large part of History and modern politics into their view of a class struggle.

Shoehorning often involves Cherry picking facts that can be shaped to fit ones agenda while ignoring those that don't fit however they're shaped. [1] [2]
