The Bizarro Wikipedia

Bizarro planet htrae

Fans of the Superman comics know about the Bizarro World, a place where everything is the opposite of Earth, where:

Us do opposite of all Earthly things! Us hate beauty! Us love ugliness! Is big crime to make anything perfect on Bizarro World!

While the Bizarro World is fiction, they have a real encyclopedic wiki called the Metapedia. Just as the Wikipedia has an article titled Barack Obama citizenship conspiracy theories, the Bizarro wiki, has its own article on Barack Obama birth controversy, where the conspiracy theories are treated seriously. The Metapedia article’s sources and citations come from such familiar web sites as WorldNetDaily, StormFront, Americas Right, and Atlas Shrugs.

I haven’t had time to dig into the Metapedia; I just looked at some Obama related articles, but what I saw had distinctive racial overtones.  The RationalWiki describes the Metapedia as “a thinly veiled neo-Nazi propaganda site that almost makes Conservapedia look well-adjusted.” The Metapedia describes RationalWiki as “a genetic-egalitarian race-denialist propaganda website.” There is a definite clash there!

    Try reading conservapedia their information is just as crazy. Phyllis Schiafly’s son moderates the site and even the very conservative moderators have called him out for bias and ignoring truth over innuendo.

    The POSFKBC isn’t’ mentioned in the Wikipedia article on Obama conspiracy theories. I want to add it if I can find a good source reference. Unfortunately, the media have given little attention to the SECOND fake Kenyan certificate.

    I capitalize White and Black to show respect.

    Was I being inadvertently racist or appeared to be?

    I suppose it depends on the context.

    I just started reading the piece on Stanley Ann and I was under the impression that it was a gag. Like a Stephen Colbert version of Wikipedia.

    I misunderstood Dr. C’s description. They’re serious. Wow.

    I glanced at the Metapedia article on Wikipedia, read the first sentence and went “WTF???”

    Wikipedia is a far-left and Judeocentric, multilingual wiki project, censured by an internal bureaucracy of tribal editing clans to conform to a largely neo-Marxist and Zionist viewpoint.

    I also notice that the phrase “far-left” appears a lot when bigots and ogres use it to describe their opponents. This leaves me wondering who qualifies as “the left” or “the not-so-far left”.

    It’s wrong to capitalize “White” and “Black” when using the words as racial descriptors? I had no idea; I used them the other day in just that way. I wrote them in lower case then reached a point where I decided to use “caucasian” and MSWord invoked its override power and changed it to “Caucasian”. I assumed MSWord knew what it was doing, so I went back and capitalized “White” and “Black” wherever they had been used as racial descriptors. I know “White” and “Black” are racial constructs but for that matter so are Caucasoid, Negroid, Mongoloid, and Australoid. Now I’m confused about the grammar rule here; I think I should capitalize my new racial identity – Confusoid.

    Thats pretty much how conservapedia came about too. Claiming wikipedia ws far left and hethanistic etc. That’s just how those people are when reality doesn’t conform to their views they create their own reality via conservapedia or metawiki. Same thing for youtube they have now created their own youtube

    I would generally infer something like that to be emphasis (rather than racism or respect), so, at least in my mind, you were not being racist, but I didn’t interpret you as being more than usually respectful, either…

    The site is written by white nationalists. Glad to see the conservative’s movement true colors.

    Who here has seen the episode of “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” called “The Gang Goes Jihad”?

    The discussions about the correct capitalization rules for the words “white” and “black”, based on context, remind me of a running gag in that show about when it is appropriate to use the word “Jew”.

    Of course, I always capitalized white and black when I was working, laying out labels on forms, but it struck me as odd they way it was used in the Metapedia. It just looked like they were trying to increase the importance of them beyond simply being descriptive.

    By the way, 15 minutes after I published this article, I had a HUGE traffic spike. I won’t be able to analyze it until the data is crunched tomorrow.

    Other funny revisionist history from the site….

    “It is claimed Barack Obama was born in Honolulu, Hawaii to a Muslim, black African father from Kenya, Barack Hussein Obama, Sr., and a white American mother, Stanley Ann Dunham. According to divorce records they were married on February 2, 1961 in Maui. However, no guests attended the “ceremony” and there were no witnesses to the alleged marriage.[1] Also no marriage certificate has yet to appear. Barack Obama’s wife, Michelle, said Obama’s mother was “very young and very single when she had him.”[2] Barack Obama himself has questions about the alleged marriage. In his memoir, Dreams From My Father he states, “How and when the marriage occurred remains a bit murky, a bill of particulars that I have never quite had the courage to explore.” [1]

    Some have questioned if Obama’s birth certificate which was provided to the media by the presidential campaign is authentic. (See main article, Barack Obama birth controversy) Also, it has not been determined which hospital in Honolulu he was born and Obama refuses to provide an answer to this question. [2] Some have speculated the birth certificate is a fake and Obama was born outside of the United States, possibly in Kenya. [3] His Kenyan grandmother claims she was in the delivery room and saw him arrive. [4] In addition the Associated Press reported on his 2004 Illinois Senate campaign and described him as being Kenyan-born. [5] If this was the case, it would make him ineligible to be President of the United States since it is a constitutional requirement the president to be a “natural born citizen” of America. [6]

    Barack Obama married Michelle Obama in 1992. They were married by their Black racist pastor Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr. They have two daughters.”

    Look up pretty much anything including science on conservapedia. The funny part is reading the review history. Look for Schiafly and how his own mods call him out for bias

    Glad to see that she also vetoed the bill about people carrying guns on college campuses too.
