Brown-baiting (compare red-baiting) is harassing an individual or group by making claims of associations with National Socialism and fascism (broad sense), often as a form of guilt by association and/or ad hominem.

The word "brown" is derived from the color of the uniforms worn by some National Socialist organizations ("Brownshirts"). The word "baiting" is derived from dog-baiting in which dogs are incited to fight one another.
