Logic hates

Is there a name for the (il)logical pattern that goes something like:
"I believe/think/have experienced X. You believe/think/claim to have experienced not-X. Therefore you are deluding yourself"
?

I've been tagging it as "false consciousness" in my brain, but that's a bit of a misnomer.
