[edit] Trump's wife vs daughter

"Melania trump, daughter of Donald Trump" For somebody who follows Trump so closely, apparently TerryH can't tell the difference between trump's wife and trump's daughter. Freudian slip?

Well considering Trump can't either.... ;-) Nil Einne (talk) 15:15, 3 September 2016 (UTC)

[edit] Passing of Phyllis S.

I know that we all morn the loss of Andy's mother. It has made the national news. Perhaps it is time to analyze what impact this may have.

She controversially endorsed Donald Trump, which prompted a split with some of her offspring that were helping to run the Eagle Forum. One could expect that donations will diminish after her passing and perhaps the operation folding. Will her passing force Andy to turn to more remunerative activity than CP and teaching homeschooled students? Hclodge (talk) 08:48, 6 September 2016 (UTC)

Too soon, mate. He might be a shitbag but he's lost his mum. London Grump (talk) 11:37, 6 September 2016 (UTC)
Too soon? Bah, humbug! Reverend Black Percy (talk) 11:38, 6 September 2016 (UTC)
that was done to death when thatcher died. As unoriginal as it is crass. AMassiveGay (talk) 13:11, 6 September 2016 (UTC)
there is something very misogynistic about it, beside the crowing over the death of another human being AMassiveGay (talk) 13:14, 6 September 2016 (UTC)
Something very misogynistic about doing what? Certainly nothing either me or Hclodge have said in this thread, or the thread I linked, has any semblance of misogyny whatsoever. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 13:51, 6 September 2016 (UTC)
famous woman we dont like - lets compare them to witches. If they die, lets roll out the ding dong trope. After all, they harridans not real women. You dont see such specific responses when men die. ~~
"Ding, dong" trope? What? You do realize, of course, that I wrote that because I enjoy making cultural references and dad jokes. I haven't said she's not a "real woman" (has anyone even said that?). And, what? The literal example I used in the other thread was the death of Jerry Falwell, whom — to the best of my knowledge — was not a woman. Speaking of "misogyny", I suppose the mere fact that someone has died — which we all will — somehow outweighs the fact that said person dedicated her life to misogyny and antifeminism? It's going to take some serious todesangst to spin things to where the involuntary action of her dying is more important than a life of voluntary hate mongering. Surely the one thing we cannot blame her for is dying. The rest, however... Reverend Black Percy (talk) 14:09, 6 September 2016 (UTC)
Your lack of compassion for a family in mourning and just common decency says way more about yourself and the causes you represent than inflicts harm on the deceased. What child, or youth with an impressionable mind, would envy you and want to grow up to be such a disgusting person? Or have sympathy for such hateful idealogies and causes you stand for?nobsGary Johnson for Rehab! 14:26, 6 September 2016 (UTC)
"Lack of compassion for a family in mourning" -> meanwhile at the Phillis Schlafly talkpage, I clearly state:
"Regarding the tragedy of others, I will say one thing. I'm not exactly bullhorning Andrew Schlafly about this. I believe in leaving the mourning people to deal with their grief. I wouldn't support people forcing their opinions upon the griefstricken."
Also, "inflicts harm on the deceased"? I don't know that that is even a coherent concept. It would appear you perfer to save your care for the dead that can no longer use it than for the still living who could actually use it. And for the record, if you're suddenly implying that I'm a disgusting person, then you should probably take five and go for a walk or something. You risk being consumed by your own defense mechanisms[wp] — suddenly the totality of my physical person can safely be said to be "disgusting" on the basis of my fairly curt refusal (in text, over the internet) to kiss the feet of an asshole that now happens to have passed on (like we all will in due time)? Talk about dehumanising me. Also — "hateful ideologies"? Which would those be, exactly — if nothing else, in stark contrast to those of overt antifeminism, misogyny, far-right fundamentalism and conspiracy theories perpetuated by the late Phyllis? Reverend Black Percy (talk) 14:49, 6 September 2016 (UTC)
Andy has been receiving messages of sympathy from certain Conservapedians and even by some here at RW., but his 3 biggest goons, Ken, Karajou and TerryH who have posted since the announcements, have offered not a word.--Mercian (talk) 15:39, 6 September 2016 (UTC)
And I'll repeat right now that I don't condone any gloating over the passing of Andy's mom to Andy or the griefstricken. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 15:41, 6 September 2016 (UTC)

Actually, the last time (before Phyllis anti Equal Rights) I looked at the Ding Dong the Witch is dead video was for Scalia. And there were quite some comments making allusions to Scalia. Maybe it is time to write a cheerful song about the passing of a male scumbag. another Jewish conspiracy by (((Laurogeita Hamabost))) (talk) 18:58, 6 September 2016 (UTC)

Trump and Andy share the stage at Phyllis's funeral. I'm surprised the local space-time was able to withstand that much concentrated right-wing stupidity. (BTW Donald, thumbs up may not be the best gesture at a funeral.) --Night Jaguar (talk) 21:16, 10 September 2016 (UTC)

I dunno. A thumbs down whud've looked a whole lot worse. nobsGary Johnson for Rehab! 00:11, 11 September 2016 (UTC)
If only Ken was also in the picture, then it truely would have caused a hole in the space time continuum, Hi Ken, really missing how atheism is dying, it's not, deal with it. Also Politico quotes John Schlafly, he's the closeted one right? Ghost (talk) 14:42, 11 September 2016 (UTC)
Don't worry, Ken will be there at Trump's funeral. Or the other way round. another Jewish conspiracy by (((Laurogeita Hamabost))) (talk) 19:11, 11 September 2016 (UTC)
And nothing of value was lost.--The (((Kigel))) (talk) (mail) 20:39, 26 September 2016 (UTC) 20:39, 26 September 2016 (UTC)

[edit] Bad Coffee Disproves Evolution

While generally boring, now and then there's still a good yuk to be had on CP. I've been blocked for months, so generating links is more pain than it's worth but Anger Bear has some good lines on Talk:Counterexamples to Evolution recently. Ever-insistent that the Second Law of Thermodynamics is not limited to closed systems, he offers two new observations: coffee goes from hot to cold spontaneously and its flavor degrades with time, also spontaneously. Since this happens on the Earth, which liberals insist is not a closed system, entropy must always increase anywhere and everywhere. Some poor soul is trying to rebut this not-even-wrong logic, which just adds amusement value. Whoover (talk) 21:53, 22 September 2016 (UTC)

"A counter argument does not constitute proof [that something is false]" - Karajou, on the talk page of Counterexamples to Evolution; a page which concludes that counterexamples disprove stuff Ruddager (talk)

[edit] Andy and the NFL.

Andy takes credit for falling attendences in the NFL due to his "Unplug the NFL" campaign.[2] which is obviously ridiculous, akin to EPL attendences falling because of a blog post I wrote criticising it. So for those of you who know Andy better than I do, is he seriously deluded enough to believe he is making a difference or is he just out and out lying?--Mercian (talk) 20:30, 18 October 2016 (UTC)

I think the line between the two has disappeared for him. He's "lying/deluded" or "delyding" or his brain is "diluted" or something. (talk) 21:08, 18 October 2016 (UTC)
And, yeah — CP is totally a site with sufficent impact to command the consciousness of the NFL watching crowds (especially in 2016!). Reverend Black Percy (talk) 01:04, 19 October 2016 (UTC)
Yep. I can see it now. Beyonce is going to unplug the NFL and move the halftime show to CP. nobs 10:53, 19 October 2016 (UTC)
A blog post with 19,000 views is responsible for taking down one of the largest organizations in the country. Considering we don't even know how many of those views are unique (probably not very many), that's pretty damn impressive. Snrub (talk) 13:07, 19 October 2016 (UTC)

[edit] Conservapedia rising?

Why does their Alexa rating keep going so high? I don't understand it and its frustrating.— Unsigned, by: / talk / contribs

Hi Ken. I'm sure you'll tell us why when you tell us about this question on your blog and cp mpr. London Grump (talk) 21:27, 22 October 2016 (UTC)
This one's easy. I had been inactive from June 2015 to April 2016 when ratings started to rise. The rest is history. And they still haven't kept their part of the bargain in granting me full sysop powers back. nobs 23:47, 22 October 2016 (UTC)
There, there Rob. Let it all out and you'll feel better. I'll make us a cup of tea while you blow your nose and wash your face. London Grump (talk) 08:32, 23 October 2016 (UTC)
