Academics Launch Wikipedia Propaganda Blitz

If you think Wikipedia is biased and unreliable now, wait until these kooks are done with it:

Prominent gender and media studies professors from across the country converged recently to help host what was dubbed by organizers as a “Feminist, Anti-Racist Wikipedia Edit-a-thon” to create or influence dozens of entries on the online encyclopedia.

A Claremont Graduate University endowment fund sponsored the effort, which promoted creating and “improving” entries dedicated to: feminists; feminist theories; science studies; science, technology and society; human sexuality; artificial intelligence; and film theory; according to an email that announced the event to the Claremont Colleges community, as well as the “Edit-a-thon Wikipedia Page.”

“This event is … proposed because an increasing number of undergraduates are utilizing digital humanities techniques in their research, as well as studying and publishing their findings using the Internet and online spaces that can be hostile, sexist, hierarchical, overly entertainment-focused, and identity neutral,” states a blog post on the Claremont Digital Humanities website. “The Feminist/Anti-Racist Digital Humanities BLAIS project encourages more complicated expressions of difference and identity in online spaces.”

What the unenlightened think of as reality is actually only a malleable social construct. It can be changed at will so as to assert the primacy of “identity.” For example, two plus two may equal four for narrow-minded white male Christians, but only cognitively challenged homosexual African American dwarves can determine what it may equal for them — although condescending college professors reserve the right to determine it on their behalf.

The professors involved aren’t talking, so it remains unclear what bizarre alterations may have been made to Wikipedia entries. We do know that there is plenty of flakey liberal crap passing itself off as fact on Wikipedia. In the future, there will be even more:

[M]ore “Wikistorms” are in the offing, according to the inaugural effort’s organizers.

Alarmingly, the Wikistorm initiative isn’t limited to social science subjects, where people know to put on their hip waders in advance:

Its agenda also included a roundtable discussion on “feminist, anti-racist approaches to technology,” according to organizers.

Maybe they will explore the topic of how you can get a windmill to produce as much electricity as a nuclear plant by explaining to the windmill that you are historically oppressed and will suffer low self-esteem if it doesn’t crank out enough watts.

Libs are making sure you get what you pay for.

    Two can play that game. Maybe we should do the same thing. Go into these areas and do a little fixing for them. Let the wikiwars begin.

    Not surprising at all. It’s already happening.
    For those interested in how exactly Wiki twists history and facts, see my post at Gateway pundit. It destroys both Wiki article on “Southern Strategy” and the libtarded troll who got caught pushing it. It will also show you how big of a lie “Southern Strategy” myth is.

    “Everything must be different!” or “Alles muss anders sein!” was a slogan of the Nazi Party.

    So they’ll just rewrite history via wiki-lies and pave their way to paradise like Hitler did. Hitler’s evil thugs hated the rich, the capitalists, the Jews, Christians, etc. They tore down the culture and institutions that their society and culture was based upon just like the leftists of today. They’re just like the NAZI’s.

    Unfortunately most conservatives are working…unlike liberal academics who suckle at the government teat.

    Michele Obama promised that they would have to change everything, including history.

    Obama will go down as one of the worst presidents in US history.

    Under his leadership:
    The value of the dollar is destroyed
    The US credit rating is destroyed
    The manned space program is ended
    Unemployment is brought to an all time high
    Rich folks leave the US in droves
    The best medical care in the world is no longer found in the US
    Terrorists shake in their boots
    The US military is destroyed
    Russia is a more free country than the US
    China will surpass the US in economic freedom
    The opportunity to become independent of foreign oil is squandered.
    Private savings are taxed away by inflation
    US leadership is a laughing stock of other nations
    Illiteracy in the US soars.

    Fixed.

    Wikipedia is totally reliable and non-biased – Snopes verified it!/sarc

    I do use Wikipedia a lot, and appreciate its existence, but I stick mostly to technical articles where there really isn’t any political nonsense. These people need to experience the hunter-gatherer existence for a while; maybe they’ll develop an appreciation for what matters.

  • David Morris

    I’m a conservative and a contributor at both Wikipedia and Conservapedia. At Wikipedia, my user name is PCHS-NJROTC; at Conservapedia, my name is DMorris. Personally, I think Wikipedia is a mostly reliable source of information, but you have to watch out for bias in some of the political articles, mostly due to the political bias of the contributors to those articles and the sources used in those articles.

    Some folks here are retired. Some are self-employed. Some just don’t sleep well.

    By comparison, the typical academic has boatloads of time. The average college professor teaches maybe one class, watches the progress of a couple of graduate students. I can’t imagine them working 20 hours in a typical week.

    This crap is everywhere.

    Check out a college textbook.

    It appears that someone has required equal time for blacks and other minorities in each and every book regardless of subject.

    The “equal-time-regardless-of-merit” meme is firmly engrained in almost every textbook published now, from social psychology (where, in the history of psychology, the first black women to receive a Ph.D. at Howard U is given equal acknowledgement to Freud) all the way to differential equations.

    (The latter subject, as well as the history of Vikings, being monumental challenges for the publishers.)

    This is the reason that Obama and the left don’t celebrate the US manned space program. It was the triumph of a bunch of white, capable, trained engineers. There was no room for “tokens.” (Sorry…did I use that word again???)
