“”They obviously waited for me to show up before announcing this.
Metapedia is a website which describes itself as "an electronic encyclopedia about culture, art, science, philosophy and politics." The site's stated focus is "on topics that usually are not covered in — i.e. that fall outside of — mainstream encyclopedias." It has been described as "an 'internet love site', dedicated to the love of European people and culture."
 Origin and history
Metapedia was created by Anders Lagerström of Linköping, a Swedish neo-Nazi activist who has been convicted for violent offenses, including assaulting a police officer using tear gas, and breaking and entering. The original (Swedish) Metapedia was created during late 2006. The English Metapedia, launched during May 2007, was the 4th of the now 16 language versions of Metapedia.
As of June 2010, the site appears to have awakened from a long period of inactivity. However, it still appears to be run almost entirely by only a dozen extremists.
Metapedia has few active editors, and much of its content is copied from Wikipedia under the GFDL and then edited to remove any critical POV on sensitive topics including: Nazi and fascist politics and history; World War II history (especially Nazi military tactics and equipment); and individuals and concepts specific to the political far right. The articles' perspectives on science and history - for example, their explanation of Holocaust denial - are twisted in order to bolster their ridiculous premises. Much of the writing on topics related to race, racism and racialism appears to be original work. Very short "stub" articles are illustrated with a tree stump, implying that they'll probably never grow.
Links to articles on people with Jewish heritage (in a policy reminiscent of the one-drop rule, this includes people who had Jewish ancestors but were not themselves fully or religiously Jewish, such as Vladimir Lenin) are always followed by a yellow Star of David. The implications of this should be obvious. One person who notably isn't marked in this manner, however, is Jesus Christ, and his nationality is listed only as "Roman citizen". Hmm...
In sum, it is the work of a few people who are still distraught that they lost World War II, even though none of them were alive back then.
 Sample comments
On themselves: "As a website, Metapedia is strongly opposed to Jewish supremacism and its slave army of beast-men of the demiurge. In the battle between good and evil, Metapedia is strongly in favour of the Aryan race - descendants of the god-men of Hyperborea and Ultima Thule" 
On "race": "From the Tower of Babel to the later 20th century this was an accepted fact of reality." ... "The races of men are an easily observable fact of nature and a product of common sense. They are part and parcel of what makes up the Natural order."
On racism: "Racism is the recognition that distinctive human characteristics and abilities are determined by race." ... "Racism can range from mere recognition of skin deep differences between races to the acknowledgement that humanity contains a downward spiral, with the White race at the top and the lesser races - such as the Indigenous Australians, Bushmen and Hottentots - at the bottom."
On “Negroids”: "Even in the scarce cases of the Negroid showing some small spark of genius it has been with those having a great deal of white or arabic ancestry" ... "decreased intelligence and increased animal sex drive ... allowing for more efficient and brutal rape of children."
On "Mongoloids": "Only few of human discoveries were done by mongoloid people ... [they] especially are known for subtle art of tortures they apply on other people."
On hate speech: "Hate Speech is a term used by governments and governing élites to refer to any opposition to official doctrine - for example, any political opposition to immigration or miscegenetion."
On "Purim": "The righteous Haman did as many of us have done today. Declared that all jews should be exterminated for their crimes against our peoples...","...was stopped and beaten to death with fire extinguishers. This is how all jews should be dealt with.","Whatever they “pray” to is a dark, demonic force of evil energy, to which they also sacrifice human babies to[sic]."
On Gypsies: "They are well known for mistreating their children." ... "Being their ancestors selected among criminals, they have a genetic inheritage that makes them more inclined to steal and commit violence against other people."
On the United Kingdom Independence Party: "In recent years they have tried to portray themselves as a multiple-issue "patriotic" party, and regularly try to steal British National Party votes by claiming to oppose mass-immigration."
On Conservapedia: "Despite purporting to be a conservative website, Conservapedia is rife with Marxist phraseology. It describes Metapedia as a "racist" website; a term devised by Leon Trotsky founder of the Red Army."
On RationalWiki: "The website fraudulently portrays itself as being “rational”, and opposed to “pseudoscience”, yet promotes exactly the thing that they claim to oppose: the irrational spiritual pseudosciences of genetic egalitarianism and race denialism."
You can find a few more examples of their antics archived on our "What is going on in the Fourth Reich?" page. Some users of Metapedia take delight in vandalising this article when they visit RationalWiki. There is also a Wordpress blog known as "metadave" with similar content, though its relationship with the wiki is unclear.
 Metapedian neologisms
"Volkenhass" (ungrammatical and bastardized German for "people-hate", apparently) is a word which does not exist in any sane version of the English or German languages. Nevertheless, it is used by Metapedia to pretend that "racism" means something nice. The German term "Völkerhaß" means literally: hatred of other folks.
