Politics

Years ago I read Wikipedia’s page on the Spanish Civil - War, and realized it was absolute BS

Posted: Feb 22nd, 2021 - 5:31 am In Reply to: Inside Wikipedia's leftist bias: socialism pages whitewashed, - communist atrocities buried

(trying to draw parallels between the initial murders of the leftist mobs and the eventual retribution by the military government later). Too many eyewitnesses recorded actual events, too many photographs out there, too many martyrs declared by the Church who weren’t political, military, or clergy - just Catholic; they can’t be allowed to re-write history.

They also whitewash much of China's atrocities.

I am glad this is getting more mainstream coverage. Wikipedia is heavily controlled by leftists who have realized that if they dominate pages in numbers then they can use the site as a political propaganda tool. It’s sad, because the idea of Wikipedia has promise (although it has always been riddled with inaccuracies).

Wikipedia has a “viewpoint neutrality” rule, but it’s very rarely actually enforced anymore for articles with any political content. I still think it’s worth more of our people joining and fighting back with well-researched, sourced edits, simply because the site is so influential.
