RationalWiki's 2019 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2019.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Donations so far: $4200Goal: $6000

—André Vltchek[1]

André Vltchek (1963–) is a Russian-American born in Leningrad (Saint Petersburg), USSR who was raised in Central Europe and later naturalized as a U.S. citizen. He is an "author, filmmaker, investigative journalist, poet, photographer, revolutionary, internationalist and globetrotter who fights against Western Imperialism and the Western regime imposed on the world" (i.e. "Western oppression", "Western propaganda", "Western imperialism", "Western terrorism"), and what not. In essence, he is conspiracy theorist, a moonbat anti-globalist, or more broadly anti-all-things-Western, who likes to describe himself as communist revolutionary, internationalist and environmentalist.[2] He also considers himself a "famous" western writer/filmmaker.[1]

He also accuses Ukraine, NATO and EU (under the boot of new German fascism) of conspiring against Russia, denies Serbian war crimes. He has praised various despots both on the left and right, as well as far-right ethno-religious ultra-nationalist figures around the world — all in the spirit of the proletariat and communism. He is a staunch admirer of Putin and Russian Orthodox Church, as well as communist "icons" like the Kim Dynasty, Castro, and war criminal Slobodan Milošević. He has called Peter Koenig, Christopher Black, Robert Fisk his comrades.[2]

He also frequently writes conspiracy theorist pieces and venerates despots for both crank and non-crank websites Globalresearch, CounterPunch, The Information Clearing House, RT, Pravda.ru, China Daily, Z Commentaries, Z Net, Z Magazine, TeleSUR, New Eastern Outlook (NEO), Veterans News Now, Le Monde Diplomatique, The Irish Times, The 4th Media, Dissident Voice, etc.[2]
