Logical fallacies occur when someone is presenting an argument. Telling someone to call the police instead of posting on Reddit may imply the existence of a false dilemma in the speaker's mind, but we wouldn’t say that a fallacy is being committed because no argument is being presented.

I mean yeah, anyone with a PhD in biomedical engineering from MIT is quite brilliant (or at least they were at the time), but I don't see any reason to believe that he isn't a bad faith actor. Honestly seems to me to be a combination of a bad faith actor and a complete nutter.
