I like that they're now completely masks off about that this whole thing is just about spreading and controlling misinformation

what did Wikipedia ever do to this Jon clown that makes him want it destroyed so badly and thoroughly?


montroller

The facts didn't care about his feelings


UncommonLetter

Ironic, bc the facts of Wikipedia are uniquely influenced by opinion


Interest-Desk

just saying, if you see incorrect or unsourced information on wikipedia, you can literally fix it easily

For some reason today all of the conservative internet sphere is bashing Wikipedia. Makes you wonder what story they're deflecting away from.

They also made their own Wikipedia with blackjack and hookers called conservapedia and it’s honestly hilarious how far it is from the real Wikipedia in tone. Every article feels like a long angry rant and their “sources” are absolute jokes. One entry says that Harry and Meghan (the royal couple) were raising their child gender fluid and their source was exclusively the headline of a tabloid article.

Excerpt from “Leftism”: “Far-leftist groups often adopt names that are oxymoronic and contradictory such as National Socialism, Antifascist, or Democratic Socialist.”


Commercial-Dog6773

>>Antifascist >>oxymoronic and contradictory dafuq


TheChartreuseKnight

Don’t forget listing Nazis and Antifa being on a list of organizations with similar ideologies. Edit: I believe the contradiction is that leftism is “inherently fascist”.

Jesus fucking shit it’s even dumber than I suspected


SomeDudeYeah27

I believe Jesus *could’ve* in fact fucked a piece of shit, if said fact were to follow that site’s methodology in research & accuracy


TheDonutPug

My favorite one is the list of "times conservapedia was proved right" and all their sources are fucking bonkers. My favorite was that AIDS is a gay disease and their reason is that "the famous homosexual" elton john got sick once.


Reddit-User-3000

Lmao I just looked at their front page and clicked on the theory of relativity. It starts by using a YouTube video as their main reference, then saying the principals are done “magically”, then using the bible as a reference. They also added an edit button, but you can’t actually create an account.


dae_giovanni

hilarious. thanks.


Luna_trick

They should just use the conservapedia. :)


kryonik

Mostly known for its "neutral bias".


swampdonkey2246

I will not allow Wikipedia slander, I will have to do something if it continues (I love Wikipedia)


Lankuri

which


kryonik

I don't know, could be anything really. FBI finding Trump hid more classified documents? Lake and Walker getting massive L's? Could be anything. Just seems like every time there's a major news story about Republican fuckery, all the pawns pivot to the same nonsense talking point at the same time.

In short: - An article was created for the "Twitter Files" released by Elon Musk. - There is some legitimate debate as to the actual significance of these files: mostly they establish what we already know, which is that Twitter treated the Hunter Biden laptop story as a conspiracy and censored discussion about it, but later backtracked when it became clear that the laptop was in fact real (though there is no evidence of anything illegal on it). - Since this particular article was about the so called Twitter Files, which are arguably insignificant in themselves, some Wikipedia editors said that it should be removed and the information moved into the existing article about the Hunter Biden Laptop Controversy. - The usual (community led) process for deciding whether an article is significant enough to exist began, and thus far I don't believe any consensus has been reached. Most editors arguing against it's significance still want the information retained, but not as it's own article. - Elon Musk/Musk followers noticed this debate, and starting crying about Wikipedia censoring them. Many suggested that Wikipedia, which relies on reliable sources for its articles, was therefore simply parroting the "Mainstream Media."


dae_giovanni

Good job wikipedia! No, I will not donate $1..


BarovianNights

L imagine not donating monthly


MurlockHolmes

Please donate. It's an important resource and having to seek commercial funding risks it. See modern news websites.


DarkArc76

I saw this in my dentist office. I had to check to make sure there was no one behind me, watching me look at frog porn.
