Isn't this a tautology? Isn't "moon battery" liberal by definition? Likewise the "Conservative wingnuttery" category. — Unsigned, by: 99.234.197.221 / talk / contribs

Well, yes, but the idea is for the templates to - with an extra word (liberal and conservative, respectively) - explain these terms in short to people who don't know why they'd even be interested in "moonbattery" or "wingnuttery". I mean, moonbattery sounds just as much as a free energy device based on an alien battery on the moon. So it's useful enough if you ask me. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 11:57, 1 July 2016 (UTC)
In this context "liberal" refers to ideas on the left that fall more in the centre on an authoritarian vs libertarian scale (the right-wing counterpart "conservative wingnuttery" has an analogous function). --Yisfidri (talk) 16:07, 16 August 2016 (UTC)
