[edit] Criticizing Ben Carson is racist, because Obama

No, no, no, Jpratt.img Calling Ben Carson a fucking idiot is not racist. It's fact.

Calling Ben Carson a Kenyan, Muslim, based solely on his ancestry and skin colour and hanging him in effigy would be racist. Luckily liberals aren't as much into lynchings at Tea Baggers. PsyGremlinRunāt! 11:28, 10 May 2015 (UTC)

Cathy Young had a similar comment upon observing people shrieking that it was off-limits to criticize Hillary Clinton because sexism, so I'm not sure it's quite as one-sided as you say. That said, a headshot of Ben Carson would be a worthy picture to put in a dictionary next to the term "lunatic"; no debate there. The Blade of the Northern Lights (話して下さい) 23:58, 10 May 2015 (UTC)

[edit] I'm Thinking Atheistic Terrorism

Amtrak engineer is a facebook user.img My spidey sense thinks "why does the lamestream media not cover his atheism?" cannot be far behind. Whoover (talk) 21:25, 14 May 2015 (UTC)

Getting warmer.imgWhoover (talk) 04:49, 15 May 2015 (UTC)
Hot now.img Whoover (talk) 05:33, 15 May 2015 (UTC)
Hotter, but we're not quite they're yet, but I wouldn't put it past Andy.--Arisboch (talk) 10:39, 15 May 2015 (UTC)
Best you're gonna get will be along the lines of "Why isn't the mainstream media asking if the engineer was an atheist? Are they afraid that atheistic terrorism will be revealed?" Which is what Andy would prefer, because the best part of JAQing off is that you don't need to defend or provide evidence for asking questions. Peace. AgingHippie (talk) 15:52, 15 May 2015 (UTC)
That kind of stuff would be "hot".--Arisboch (talk) 15:54, 15 May 2015 (UTC)
We've now got "accident" in scare quotesimg, o ye of little faith. Whoover (talk) 17:30, 15 May 2015 (UTC)
But a concussion rarely causes amnesia, and afterwards he blackened his Facebook image. Why would he quickly blacken it if he were a victim??img We're so close I can taste it. Whoover (talk) 00:36, 16 May 2015 (UTC)
C'mon Andy, say it. What's the obvious? Is it gay atheistic terrorism?img Whoover (talk) 02:43, 18 May 2015 (UTC)

Andy's starting a revisionist history of the National Traffic Safety Boardimg, probably setting the stage for the NTSB to be a terrorist-enabling wing of the Obama administration. The NTSB was formed in 1967, but he has it formed much earlier and stripped of its ability to investigate airplane accidents in 1940. That's pretty bizarre, even for Andy. The implication is that the NTSB is acting extra-legally. 1940 is when the Civil Aeronautics Board was formed and did the first airplane accident investigation undertaken by the federal government. Responsibility for such investigations passed to the newly formed NTSB in 1967. As a font of misinformation, CP is unimpeachable. Whoover (talk) 15:50, 18 May 2015 (UTC)

[edit] Has CP un-died?

Awhile ago it seemed like it had very few edits, now it pulls maybe 75/day. Herr FuzzyKatzenPotato (talk/stalk) 17:41, 15 May 2015 (UTC)

OMG, CP has risen from the grave! 141.134.75.236 (talk) 00:44, 16 May 2015 (UTC)
No. You read into numbers to much.--Miekal 01:10, 16 May 2015 (UTC)
So then what's up with the upped editcount? 32℉uzzy, 0℃atPotato (talk/stalk) 03:34, 18 May 2015 (UTC)

[edit] Gentlemen

Gentlemen! I will fumble your precious dollhouse, enabling me to destroy atheism on the internet. You should all be deconstructing over Operation Document, which will likely give Conservapedia a top result on a certain search engine starting with G.Ole Ole Ole Ghost (talk) 13:10, 17 May 2015 (UTC)

A word of advice: don't treat gay bowel syndrome with hydrogen peroxide - it destroys tissue. Try rubbing alcohol instead. nobsI'm not from this planet, but let me tell u what I think.... 01:22, 18 May 2015 (UTC)

[edit] Tom Brady

Andy doesn't know Tom Brady is a conservative Republican considering a career in Republican party politics, a possible rival for Elizabeth Warren's seat. Just what kinda advice is he getting from Karajou & Ken on those private discussion lists these days? nobsI'm not from this planet, but let me tell u what I think.... 01:48, 18 May 2015 (UTC)

Oh Nobbykins, surely you of all people realise that liberal in the Conservapedia vocabulary is synonymous with "person I don't like" and has little or nothing to do with their politics. Of course, you prefer the term "commie", but the principle is the same. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 10:10, 19 May 2015 (UTC)

[edit] Data showing christianity is in a slump?

Attention Ken: Google trends indicates: Christianity is a slump! [1] Olé Olé Olé! --Da Observer (talk) 22:25, 18 May 2015 (UTC)

More data showing that 2015 will be the WORST year ever for creationism: [2] --Da Observer (talk) 22:27, 18 May 2015 (UTC)

[edit] Ken's (and Beck's) History 101 "test"

Hey, Ken - guess what - that history 101 test you were bleating about? (link to it on Beck's page) - ACED IT! And I'm not even American (although seriously, if that's the standard of your university history teaching then no wonder China's taken over as #1. Or maybe it's just hard for conservatives. Or for people who believe in magic trumpet sounds from the sky?). Oh yeah, and here's the proof:

UH Hist 101 Blaze.png

Oh, and question 3 is wrong - the Puritans didn't come to the US to escape persecution. They came to persecute. Just ask all the Baptists they hanged. PsyGremlinRunāt! 12:36, 20 May 2015 (UTC)

Uh yeah, I went to State School in the UK, have had no formal education covering US History, and I aced that. It's not exactly taxing, though I have no idea how much history is taught in US schools. Actually not a very high proportion of UK history is taught in our system either, but we have so much more history to cover. Worm (talk) 12:49, 20 May 2015 (UTC)
I also "aced" it. I was very disappointed though. It promised to test my knowledge about the greatest nation on earth, but all the questions were about America for some reason... --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 14:24, 20 May 2015 (UTC)
I aced it too, and I'm both British and an imbecile. I guess if it wasn't so easy it would leave beck fans a little alienated if they couldn't do well. AMassiveGay (talk) 18:00, 20 May 2015 (UTC)
Yep, I aced it as well. Now, I wonder if Kenny would do remotely as well on a test on British\English history. Anyone know if there is a link to such a test? Oldusgitus (talk) 18:30, 20 May 2015 (UTC)
It said I aced it the first time through. Then I went back and answered every question incorrectly, this time it said I passed with flying colors. Talk about grade inflation. Marlow (talk) 20:06, 20 May 2015 (UTC)
Aced it. The questions are grade school level. --TheLateGatsby (The end of the dock )Moderator 20:10, 20 May 2015 (UTC)
Went back and answered about half the questions correctly, still said I aced it. Funny definition of aced I guess. Marlow (talk) 20:16, 20 May 2015 (UTC)
I just intentionally answered all the questions wrong (to the best of my knowledge - some questions are a bit vague) and it said I passed with flying colors. Cow...Hammertime! 22:21, 20 May 2015 (UTC)

Aced it. But where's Ace? Would he ace it? DogP (talk) 18:00, 21 May 2015 (UTC)

Bloody stupid. "Aced It" & I know next to nothing at all bout American History. I was convinced that I'd fail before I started. Then did it again - all different answers - "Passed with flying colours" Really STUPID! Scream!! (talk) 18:18, 21 May 2015 (UTC)
Apart from the first few questions is was very easy. If your average American adult can't ace this then perhaps Ken, Andy and Co have a point about their state school system.--Mercian (talk) 14:49, 22 May 2015 (UTC)
I have no interest in taking such a "test," partly because I suspect it is a way of gathering data. In aid of what? Don't care. Has anybody deliberately given wrong answers, and been told that they screwed the pooch, or does it always dispense a feelgood at the end? Alec Sanderson (talk) 15:04, 22 May 2015 (UTC)
I think there are three grades, "You aced it!", "You passed with flying colors' and "You're missing a few important facts but there's till room for improvement". I got that third mark the second time I took the test when I intentionally answered every question incorrectly. I aced it the first time. It's easy peasy pudding and pie primary school stuff. Ken, passing that test is nothing to crow about if any liberal limey nancy-loving atheist can do it. -Spud (talk) 16:16, 22 May 2015 (UTC)

Aced it. Apparently I've been known to visit Civil War sites and collect World War 2 memorabilia. I must have done that in my sleep. Cardinal Fang (talk) 20:24, 22 May 2015 (UTC)

[edit] Rob Smith: All is forgiven.

Baby, won't you please come back to meimg? Peace. AgingHippie (talk) 15:40, 20 May 2015 (UTC)

This is gold - Rob you have to go back. The return of the prodigal son, it's almost biblical, except this prodigal son will return triumphantly. Tielec01 (talk) 02:19, 21 May 2015 (UTC)
The only problem is he'll have to ask permission in the soopah-seekrit chat room... and as it's only Andy and Kara left in there, and both of them ignore all of Ken's posts, it's not going to happen. PsyGremlinRunāt! 16:18, 21 May 2015 (UTC)
I'd enjoy watching Nobbykins kiss Ken's demonic ring for the chance to get his powah back. If nothing else, it'd get him out from underfoot here. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 20:26, 21 May 2015 (UTC)
Are we like the girl friends who remind Rob he broke up with Ken in the first place? Well, here's Ken in Rob's own words:
CP does have another TK, and it's User:Conservative. TK actually did have some leadership skills, occassionally did listen to others, sometimes willing to negotiate, could persuade and was willing to be persuaded, at times. Ken combines the worst traits of Ken & TK, with zero leadership ability, and zero tolerance to even listen to others. It would be a mistake to say he's ideologically blinded, cause to have an ideology you would be able to discuss and defend it, and he can't do that. He's demonic. Even the demons believe in God, tremble, as the bible says.
Don't crawl back, Rob! You're better than that. Not much better, and you're still not all that great as a person, but at least you're kinda better than Ken and them. --Night Jaguar (talk) 01:06, 22 May 2015 (UTC)
But the Alexa ratings are in the dumpster. If I could generate some interest...it's tempting...nobsI'm not from this planet, but let me tell u what I think.... 03:21, 22 May 2015 (UTC)
"In the dumpster": discarded. "In the dumper": suggestive of crap. Whoover (talk) 02:58, 23 May 2015 (UTC)
I think Rob is adorable. "Oh! A challenge! Shall I apply my wiles and turn this doomed train around? How intriguing..." What a white knight! What a ridiculously inflated view of his own relevance!
Go for it, Rob. Your public needs you. Phiwum (talk) 13:06, 23 May 2015 (UTC)

[edit] Andy has an insight.

Come on August get in there and tear his latest one to piecesimg Oldusgitus (talk) 20:21, 23 May 2015 (UTC)

Five years ago.img Peace. AgingHippie (talk) 20:35, 23 May 2015 (UTC)
Andy is the only "authority" on the planet who maintains that Jesus wrote "Hebrews." I really think the sole point is to troll AugustO. Whoover (talk) 21:52, 23 May 2015 (UTC)
I remember that insight, I thought this was a new one. Has it really taken him 5 years to actually get around to updating the page on the epistle? Oldusgitus (talk) 05:06, 24 May 2015 (UTC)
