Andy should write another letter[edit]

I can't wait until Mr Belief in Black Holes Stops People Reading the Bible wakes up and sees what just won the Physics Nobel. Maybe he can be convinced to write another Lenski-esque letter to the Committee? RoundeTheeHorne (talk) 13:45, 6 October 2020 (UTC)

Anything can happen in his new causality. LondonGrump (talk) 22:53, 6 October 2020 (UTC)
It used to be that you had to click through to discover the link didn't say what Andy said it said. Now it's all there the headline. He's not even trying anymore. Whoover (talk) 23:18, 6 October 2020 (UTC)
Wow, that's... holy shit. That's a leap from Biden saying store clerks from underprivileged backgrounds put their lives at risk, so he could quarantine, to Andy screeching that "Biden says Blacks cause coronavirus!" Where's @nobs to give us his spin on it? I can't wait to hear how that's exactly what the headline says. Do you think Andy's kids still speak to him btw? RoundeTheeHorne (talk) 00:31, 7 October 2020 (UTC)
I thought Biden was talking about his domestic servant, you know, it's reminiscent of Hillary starting to think of the lady who cleans her toilet as a human being. nobsSmile, and be friends.. 00:38, 7 October 2020 (UTC)
Lol, it's adorable that you think referring to Biden having a domestic worker is somehow an insult, when you slobber over somebody who's never had to do a day's housework in his life and who thinks a gold toilet is the height of class. D- must try harder. And if you really thought that, your reading comprehension skills are worse than Andy's. Probably worse than Ken's too. RoundeTheeHorne (talk) 01:14, 7 October 2020 (UTC)
It's interesting question: Of Papa Bush, Baby Bush, Biden, and Trump, who makes the most sense when they talk? I'd rate them Trump, Papa Bush, Baby Bush, and Biden in that order. nobsSmile, and be friends.. 02:34, 7 October 2020 (UTC)
If Trump makes more sense than those three when he talks then they must be the three worst speakers in history. Today he has tweeted more than 50 times and all of them are the of the same quality of your posts. Blaming Biden, insulting anyone and everyone and totally denying that he and his, and I put this as mildly as possible, deeply irresponsible Rose Garden event were super-spreaders. Do you and he realise that his scripted and totally ridiculous mask removing event when he was still highly infectious is looked upon by everybody who is not part of his fanatical right wing cult as moronic. This is mild as I can put it. --Mercian (talk) 17:55, 7 October 2020 (UTC)
It's called "controlling the narrative." Trump has the initiative, putting you in the position of focusing on and reacting to it. We see where your priorities are. What, with all the challenges we face, fear, negativity, criticism, seizing power, and stuffing the ballot box with mail-in votes is your only concern. You could give a rats ass about black lives, justice for Breaona Taylor, economic recovery, the health and wellbeing of your fellow citizens, jobs for minorities, the communist threat from China and the Democrat party, or any other vile plague facing America such as fucked up schools, pornography, or political correctness. nobsSmile, and be friends.. 18:17, 7 October 2020 (UTC)
And given that every day some new White House staffer is testing positive for COVID - Stephen Miller the latest of the lot - you can't exactly say he's doing a great job of controlling said narrative, despite his attempts to distract by declaring he was ending stimulus talks. You frankly have no idea how we think, nobs, but again, I will tell you exactly what you believe. (You believe that there is no fundamental difference between black people and white people, that there is no inherent greatness in being white. Your central beef is with black culture, which you see as degraded and empty. Rap is mindless swearing and bragging about hos and bitches, encouraging black men to abandon their responsibilities in favor of flashy clothes, shoes and drugs. Because of this shiftlessness and focus on fast money, the family is degraded and devalued and the children are left behind by their lazy parents who want only to dance and play forever. And if the free stuff ever isn't enough, they'll burn down their own neighborhood. Democrats are evil because they tell black people that their problems are external, not internal, in order to trick and enslave them forever.) Please correct me if any of the above does not accurately reflect your honest beliefs. After all, precision is required if you're ever going to unfuck yourself. Semipenultimate (talk) 19:08, 7 October 2020 (UTC)
Rob, like Ken and the rest of the Conservapedia visionaries, are like Stalinists of old. Having taken a side, they define the world in stark binary terms to avoid having to question themselves, their actions and what they truly believe. Trump's cult of personality is part of that empowering exclusivity. Rob sees controlling the narrative, we see a reality TV gesture and get on with our day. LondonGrump (talk) 19:25, 7 October 2020 (UTC)
Stalinist with a hint of Deng Xiaoping. "Get the military with their "Bama Bullets", tanks and armoured cars to go on to the streets and slaughter the Antifa and BLM "terrorists".--Mercian (talk) 19:44, 7 October 2020 (UTC)
Well duh. The U.S. is a binary system defined by the Electoral College, and no anarchist mob will destroy the Republic. Incidentally, the Dems just lost Wisconsin (see 4th video down, "As the BLM crowd was marching through the neighborhoods..."); a white biker digging up the lawn (private property) of a Democrat union member in the name of Black Lives Matter and social justice isn't the way to go about winning friends and influencing people. You can count Wisconsin as solid blue now. nobsSmile, and be friends.. 18:42, 8 October 2020 (UTC)
Using the nobs conserva-speak translator is fun. You can plug anything into it, and a remarkable stream of drivel ensues. Let's see what happens when I type "Republican sitting Senator Mike Lee just came out and said "democracy is bad for Republican plans." (My money's on "America is a Republic, not a Democracy.") RoundeTheeHorne (talk) 08:24, 9 October 2020 (UTC)
With setbacks like this, 2020 is going to the worst year ever for the liberal/globalist/Wall Street/Marxists/BLM/anarchist alliance! LondonGrump (talk) 06:25, 9 October 2020 (UTC)
Another setback was, and this is a good one. According to reality. Trump cultists plan to kidnap The Governor of Michigan and put her on "Trial" for treason. According to Rob: Trump thwarts liberal plot to kidnap said Governor. Who are trying to kid Rob, seriously? You are so far gone you must be taking what Trump is but in larger doses. Even Ken seems to have had enough and stopped posting.--Mercian (talk) 17:08, 9 October 2020 (UTC)
@Mercian Thank you for demonstrating that RW editors are quick to spew any nonsense promoted by the MSM and Twitter liberals; blaming Trump for the kidnapping attempt is ridiculous, and it turns out that one of the thugs is an anti-Trump anarchist. Checkmate atheist! LTMay Dataclarifier be well! 17:36, 9 October 2020 (UTC)

Ding Dong the prick is back. They are Trump cultists, the same cult that you belong too. Any more mocking about the fundraiser? The one that has nearly reached it's goal. Even Ken learned not to mock us with that crap. They are admitted Trumpists belonging to a brother group that he told to "Stand by". Now fuck of back to your bunny hole Prick.--Mercian (talk) 19:23, 9 October 2020 (UTC)

PS .I am not an atheist. I have never posted on any site anywhere online that I am an atheist. What's was that about assumptions.?--Mercian (talk) 19:26, 9 October 2020 (UTC)
First of all, there's no "Trump cult", despite what liberals insist. Secondly, they were anarchists, and one of them admitted to hating Trump. Thirdly, I don't see the need to constantly mention Ken DeMyer. And lastly, Trump's "stand back and stand by" comment directed toward the Proud Boys was telling them to not cause additional trouble, and no, the far-left assertions about the group aren't true. LTMay Dataclarifier be well! 20:29, 9 October 2020 (UTC)
You have no idea what far left is. Obama is a right leaning centrist and Hilary/Biden are firm centre-right. Sanders is a centre-left social democrat. The fact is that you (if you speak for Conservapedia) are so far to the right that you consider the KKK as liberals. Far left is where anyone who owns anything is a traitor to the cause. Far Left are communist infiltrated trade unions that orchestrate 100s of walkouts or work to rules in the space of a year. When you consider Adolf Hitler a liberal you have big big problems.--Mercian (talk) 20:40, 9 October 2020 (UTC)
Trump told the Proud Boys to stand back and stand by. IE the time is not yet right. He did not tell them to stand down and refused to condemn them and other far right groups (Unlike you I know what far right and far left are). He refused to condemn far right thugs who attacked peaceful demonstrators. He refused to condemn white nationalists but did condemn black people marching for equal treatment. The far right are great citizens, BLM are terrorists, according to Trump that is.--Mercian (talk) 20:47, 9 October 2020 (UTC)
Obama is a "right leaning centrist"? I hope you do understand what Poe's Law is. Also, if you still don't realize that Trump did condemn white nationalists [1], maybe you need to start paying attention to reality. LTMay Dataclarifier be well! 21:49, 9 October 2020 (UTC)
Citing CP as a source will get you nowhere LT. And Obama is a right leaning centrist, it's just American right wingers are politically illiterate. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 22:10, 9 October 2020 (UTC)
The facts are still the facts. Also, the fact that you RW editors actually believe that "Obama is a right leaning centrist" shows just how separated you are from reality. LTMay Dataclarifier be well! 22:49, 9 October 2020 (UTC)
And you say there's no Cult of Personality? You are either very young and/or homeschooled. You need to get out more. LondonGrump (talk) 23:34, 9 October 2020 (UTC)
You reality-detached RW editors are the ones who need to "get out more". And your sudden obsession with age probably signifies an attempt to deflect on the utter immaturity and childishness of everyone on this site. Also, I have aged quite a bit. LTMay Dataclarifier be well! 00:20, 10 October 2020 (UTC)
You have no answer. All you do is engage in Ad Hominem and Gish Gallup. Empty vessels and all that. --Mercian (talk) 00:52, 10 October 2020 (UTC)
I did answer at least one of your addressed points. LTMay Dataclarifier be well! 00:57, 10 October 2020 (UTC)
LT, I've done more research into political science in four years than you have done in your entire lifetime. The professional term for your position is "moron". And those are indeed the facts, whether you like them or not is irrelevant to their truth value. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 20:15, 11 October 2020 (UTC)

LT and RobSmith are right[edit]

This detailed video backs up many of their points, and completely refutes our counter arguments. - Rairyu75 (Talk) 03:09, 10 October 2020 (UTC)

Crap, a real case of Deus Ex Machina. Rick's dance proves their point. Another Stock, Aiken and Waterman production to strengthen their position beyond doubt.

Ah, the golden age of Bayreuth, the torchlight parades, banners fluttering in the breeze...LondonGrump (talk) 10:12, 11 October 2020 (UTC)

No. It's actually a 1986 performance of Lohengrin at the Met in New York. You know, Lohengrin, with it's homosexual imagagry (Mein Liebe Schwann). nobsSmile, and be friends.. 03:23, 12 October 2020 (UTC)
Oh, I know my Wagner, although I prefer the likes of Monteverdi when it comes to opera. But you cannot separate a composer from his cultural context, history and reception. Wagner + 1984 + me = one thing. Wagner + 1933 + you = another thing. Basic critical theory, Rob. LondonGrump (talk) 06:40, 12 October 2020 (UTC)
On any other forum, those user would be banned for this. You people are truly artless. Your inability to address this user's obvious racism is a staggering failure. — Unsigned, by: 2601:249:8d00:5242:84a7:49a9:9a49:a31f / talk / contribs
Artless, you may have a point. Racist, please explain.--Mercian (talk) 20:07, 11 October 2020 (UTC)
@Mercian Rob linked to Wagner, so I assume that's what the BoN is talking about. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 12:15, 12 October 2020 (UTC)
I thought BoN was referring to Rob's everyday common or garden racism. LondonGrump (talk) 08:20, 13 October 2020 (UTC)
There's nothing common about Rob's racism - he has it honed to a fine art. RoundeTheeHorne (talk) 06:34, 14 October 2020 (UTC)

More Classic Conservapedia[edit]

Given the recent Kiwi elections, and the good press Ardern has been getting, I decided to entertain myself and have a look at her article on Conservapedia.[3] I wasn't disappointed. I love how the only citations in the article don't really support the claims made in the article. Except for the last one, that doesn't mention Mao or Hitler but makes it a point to criticize Trump. Thanks for making a dull Saturday night slightly more fun Conservapedia!--Hastur! (talk) 04:22, 18 October 2020 (UTC)

Ardern jealously formed a coalition with various other parties, thus treacherously making herself Prime Minister Coalition governments are jealous and treacherous. Delightful--Hastur! (talk) 04:26, 18 October 2020 (UTC)
" A dangerous cult of personality surrounds her in her country, similar to Stalin, Hitler and Mao" and "She was no doubt sent by the Devil to tempt us into wearing strange, unnatural headdresses." You really could not make this up.--Mercian (talk) 04:36, 19 October 2020 (UTC)
As a NZer I can say yes she does have a slight cult of personality but it is for a good reason. But nothing like the cult of personality around Trump. AceModerator 06:08, 19 October 2020 (UTC)

I thought she got an overall majority? LondonGrump (talk) 06:17, 19 October 2020 (UTC)

I'm pleased I found this slice of Conservapedia. Emblematic of their style, even if it wasn't written by oldguard like JPatt or Karajou (although that crack about being sent by the devil to tempt people into wearing headdresses makes me think a parodist go there). Instead of taking the time to criticize her policy they just say she's like Mao and clumsily quotemine the Christchurch Call summit to try and represent it as trying to promote terrorism (seriously...)--Hastur! (talk) 06:23, 19 October 2020 (UTC)
She stamped om mass shootings, stamped on the virus (easier to do in NZ than America or Europe but still). Showed sympathy and empathy when her country-folk were attacked by terrorists even though they had a different religion from her. She is not a lying self serving wanker. All things that Conservapedia hates.--Mercian (talk) 07:20, 19 October 2020 (UTC)

Log in problems[edit]

Editing continues as evidenced by the Recent Changes log. However, over the past 48-hours my friends have had problems logging in.

Secular NZ[edit]

I wonder how Ken “NZ is becoming more religious/conservative” De Myer feels about NZ overwhelming rejected a conservative Anglican and her party in favour of a liberal, agnostic woman - throwing the entire power of government to the atheist left. AceModerator 06:28, 21 October 2020 (UTC)

Generally religious folks vacillate between "we are getting more powerful than ever, it's a new revival" and "whatever, the end times are nigh and I'm getting raptured soon anyways." I think 2020 will move Ken towards the latter--Hastur! (talk) 06:36, 21 October 2020 (UTC)
He is in his weird way making a lot more sense than any other over there in his rare posts. Wear masks, socially distance, wear face shields, that sort of thing. Sure he still blames Fauci but I don't think the doctor would mind people blaming him if they took sensible precautions--Mercian (talk) 09:44, 21 October 2020 (UTC)
The majority of atheists are East Asian/White. The white population in NZ is declining at a rate of .35% per anum and the NZ Asian fertility rate is below that of whites.[4] By 2085, due to immigration and a sub-replacement level of births, whites could easily become a minority in NZ.[5] Furthermore, globally the percentage of atheists/agnostics is expected to shrink in the world according to demographers so immigration is going to erode the percentage of irreligious in NZ in the 21st century. And the icing on the religious cake is that that NZ evangelicals, Muslims and Filipinos probably have an above replacement level of births. As much as I hate to rest my case, my case is very well-rested! Irreligion faces a bleak long term future in NZ! Abandon all hope NZ atheists!Diamondsareforever (talk) 00:15, 25 October 2020 (UTC)

He has enough of Rob being the village idiot. Still going on about fucking potholes and such. In another rightful dig at the UK with our Trump-lite PM he thinks people will not see the figures above.

US 8,575,177 224,889 2.6% 68.74 United Kingdom 857,043 44,835 5.2% 67.43 Our response has been criminal so what does that make America's? --Mercian (talk) 14:35, 25 October 2020 (UTC)

He's been away for a few months. A little bird tells me he has just been released from custody for inappropriate behaviour against a puppy.--Mercian (talk) 14:38, 25 October 2020 (UTC)
Ken continues to argue despite all the evidence he is wrong. Every single census shows religion to drop in NZ - now with Christianity registering below 50%, they removed all references to religion from the parliament, NZ voted in a left-wing agnostic in a landslide (eschewing the religious opposition), none of the religious parties got above 1% of the vote and NZ hasn't had a religious PM in over 20 year. Checkmate, Ken. AceModerator 02:17, 27 October 2020 (UTC)
Stats from the recent NZ Census - Christianity: 37%, no religion: 48.5%... Christianity has dropped from 58% in 2001, decreasing every year to its lowest level ever while no religion has rising from 29% - consitently rising every year. Sorry Ken - the facts disagree with you. AceModerator 02:27, 27 October 2020 (UTC)
