English term or phrase: refrains of dismissal
Aus einem Artikel zur Bewegung der Gelbwesten:

It is common to assume that social movements should be issues-based, and to judge them on their progress as relates to discrete issues. What do they actually want?, and, Yeah, but what did they actually do?, serve as common "refrains of dismissal". This tendency is all the more pronounced in an age in which non-profit advocacy and issues-based NGOs remain ascendant amidst a generalized decline of popular mass organizations.
