Parodist?[edit]

Is  K e n  D o l l  a parodist? I'm pretty new to this but it seems like he does nothing but insult others and write ridiculously stupid things. What do you think RW? Rapier (talk) 01:15, 9 January 2012 (UTC)

Most likely. It's old news, mon!--Colonel Sanders (talk) 01:13, 9 January 2012 (UTC)
This is a question new users always ask. And the answer is...no, unfortunately he is the real deal. AceModerator 01:14, 9 January 2012 (UTC)
But sometimes even veteran RWers aren't so sure. Senator Harrison (talk) 03:06, 9 January 2012 (UTC)
Heh, good to know. Rapier (talk) 04:01, 9 January 2012 (UTC)
No, the true veterans are certain. He's the whole cloth. Just look here, he's been at it for too many years to have maintained such a high level of self parody. Scream!! (talk) 04:07, 9 January 2012 (UTC)
Perhaps he's been a parodist for so long he became the mask?--il'Dictator Mikal (talk) 04:57, 9 January 2012 (UTC)
While we veterans realize Ken is for real, there are certainly times when we have trouble grasping that fact, and even after years of his antics there are those moments of his that give us pause. DickTurpis (talk) 04:59, 9 January 2012 (UTC)
^That's what I meant. Senator Harrison (talk) 06:13, 9 January 2012 (UTC)
Hell, sometimes I think that even Andy is a parodist. I would not be totally gobsmacked if he suddenly came out and said the whole thing was an elaborate joke. DamoHi 06:29, 9 January 2012 (UTC)
Not being a parodist doesn't mean he isn't aware of what he's doing though, which may be the cause of some of the confusion. See the present debate on the Community Portal. [1]img PeterQuasniki 2012! 08:50, 9 January 2012 (UTC)

Ed is still oblivious[edit]

At this point, it's almost sad to watch Ed as he stumbles through CP, thinking that it's in any way better than WP.

Yeah, quote mining, distortion by selection, putting words in someone's mouth and having biased quote farmsimg is bad! Good thing that Conservapedia is better than that, thanks to editors who try to be neutral. You know, like Ken.

Also: "We need to beef up our article base, people!"img Who is he even talking to? Seriously, this is moving beyond his usual blindness. --Sid (talk) 17:19, 9 January 2012 (UTC)

Bonus: Ed apologizes for using a hostile siteimg as a source. Yeah, shame on you, Ed! How dare you use RightWingWatch? Go back to using proper sources like WorldNetDaily! Or write your own and link to them! --Sid (talk) 17:23, 9 January 2012 (UTC)

"We need to increase the article base!", this coming from the man who said that because Internet explorer wasnt "made" by microsoft all of it's history was a lie and then IE wasn't notable at all.--il'Dictator Mikal (talk) 17:30, 9 January 2012 (UTC)
Hrgh, the Internet Explorer trainwreck still makes me want to punch something. --Sid (talk) 17:34, 9 January 2012 (UTC)
He atleast had a point that it looked like a advertisement for it; but thats because i was extremely lazy and just used they're website. I also got told to write plan; not that anything came from that--il'Dictator Mikal (talk) 17:36, 9 January 2012 (UTC)
Sid, don't you see how Ed is helping CP by generating all these red links? It's just like his one line stubs; he plants the acorns and leaves them to grow into mighty oaks for which he can take all the credit. Redchuck.gif ГенгисGum diseaseModerator 17:53, 9 January 2012 (UTC)
Or in CP's case, shrivel in to weedy motorway trees to the everlasting shame of everybody involved. If they had a sense of shame, that is. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 18:41, 9 January 2012 (UTC)
yes but if you bring attention to trying to improve on one of eds... things... he will take exception you wont shoulder all the work. i think he told me I had to do it, that he disagreed with me so i had to fix it all.--il'Dictator Mikal (talk) 19:54, 9 January 2012 (UTC)
Ed has an ability of ignorance that rivals even Andy's. AceModerator 19:58, 9 January 2012 (UTC)

false flag[edit]

This is out there, but does anyone else ever get the feeling that the CP cabal occasionally runs false flag operations to "divert" their own attention? A lot of times when an admin is getting their ass kicked, suddenly a vandal pops up and everything needs to be dropped (and forgotten). Sometimes it just seems too convenient. Occasionaluse (talk) 21:21, 9 January 2012 (UTC)

Nothing that organised. As I see it CP admin's get there ass kicked a lot and CP gets lots of vandals. It's bound to coincide some of the time. StarFish (talk) 22:02, 9 January 2012 (UTC)

Does not compute[edit]

Todd Palin... Impressive endorsementsimg? You just fried my brain. Todd Palin, a man whose only claim to fame is being the snowmobiling husband of a former politician turned attention whore. Is there anybody dumb enough to base their voting decisions on the recommendation of this gormless idiot? --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 01:40, 10 January 2012 (UTC)

He has a little bit of gorm. 66.68.86.111 (talk) 02:19, 10 January 2012 (UTC)
The "journalist" that broke the story seems to have an intellect to match the ex-first dude himself. E.g, the article mentions rumors of a "political riff in the family." Probably Ted Nugent. --Whoover (talk) 02:26, 10 January 2012 (UTC)
"a wave of endorsements that newt is delaying until after the NH primary". Explain how waiting until after the vote happens to let people whos names can get you votes is a good idea. --il'Dictator Mikal (talk) 03:37, 10 January 2012 (UTC)
The NH primary doesn't decide the nominee—there are several other primaries afterwards, and ultimately the candidate is nominated at the Republican National Convention. -- Seth Peck (talk) 03:39, 10 January 2012 (UTC)
Still, waiting doesnt benefit you at all--il'Dictator Mikal (talk) 03:49, 10 January 2012 (UTC)

Nielsen 3:16[edit]

The Nielsen ratings are still a thing, right? Anyway, the stupid just keeps piling up.img P-Foster Talk "Go get Ace" 21:56, 9 January 2012 (UTC)

The first 6 news stories are about Tebow now. Tebowpedia!!! I can see this quickly going to "You don't want to hear even more about Tebow? LIBRULL!!!!!" Occasionaluse (talk) 22:04, 9 January 2012 (UTC)
Big shock: link is report to local Fox affiliate. -- Seth Peck (talk) 22:16, 9 January 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, they're really goingimg into numerology now with the 3:16 stuff. Remember, kids! Supernatural mysticism is okay when it's Christian supernatural mysticism! --Sid (talk) 22:18, 9 January 2012 (UTC)
Even better: a search for this on Google as well as Bloomberg (which the Fox article cites as it source) returns no results, and the local newspaper reports much higher Nielsen ratings...so... -- Seth Peck (talk) 22:21, 9 January 2012 (UTC)
Tebow's cleats have shoelaces that are 3.16" in length. Believe it or not!.--99.85.36.212 (talk) 22:23, 9 January 2012 (UTC)

They're just for decorative purposes. His shoes stick to his feet with the sheer power of God! --Sid (talk) 22:31, 9 January 2012 (UTC)
@Sethpeck: Eh, local news affiliates are relatively apolitical. They highlight sports, crimes, and the occasional feel-good story, and that's about it. Local news appeals to a geographic area, rather than a politically-minded group, so if they run any political propaganda they run the serious risk of offending half their own audience. (This is also why local news is always so bland. At least, mine is.) Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 22:37, 9 January 2012 (UTC)
In the case of KDVR, which is my local Fox affiliate, it is VERY political; the conservative bent is very strong and quite obvious (perhaps less so in the sister station CW2, but even there I see some things that make my eyebrow raise). More to my point—the Nielsen numbers they report, specifically the 31.6 rating, do not appear anywhere else on the internet, and other sources show much higher numbers. -- Seth Peck (talk) 22:46, 9 January 2012 (UTC)
Oh, my. I'm sorry to hear that. Though, this supports my hypothesis that Oregon is one of the blandest states in the union. Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 22:48, 9 January 2012 (UTC)
Arguably, one could say that all of the Denver-Boulder-Fort Collins DMA affiliates (Colorado has a separate DMA for Colorado Springs/Pueblo, which I would guess are probably more conservative but cannot attest to this) are on the conservative side when it comes to their news offerings, Colorado being a long-time red state (the radio programs, even more so—AM features all the usual suspects, of course, but even the FM dial has some pretty scary conservatives for morning personalities, and that's on rock stations). -- Seth Peck (talk) 22:55, 9 January 2012 (UTC)

This Nielsen family has to stop telling our kids what to watch on television. These bureaucrats have no right to operate in shadowy surroundings making unnecessary bureaucracy. Because who else had a family anyone else could join: Charles Manson. And you don't want Charles Manson telling your kids what to watch on television.--Colonel Sanders (talk) 23:38, 9 January 2012 (UTC)

This is why I want to Broncos to lose, not because of Tebow himself, who is a pretty good character (and I wish him all the best), but because his radical religious fans are the most insufferable people around. They honestly view his team's football victories as some sort of divine message or revelation. C'mon... Its Football! Man I love the sport but I can't imagine any all-powerful divine god caring more about some particular American sports team than all the carnage and suffering in the world, or caring at all for that matter.
Tebow fans are the Weeaboos of the NFL.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 23:42, 9 January 2012 (UTC)
That is what I've noted -- Tebow himself seems to be a pretty classy fellow and specifically does not claim God is using him to send a message or that God particularly favors him. He does thank God for giving him his skills, but that's different. It's his fans that are being jerks about it, and many of them are only fans because of his overt Christianity.
And if God was going to use sports to send a message, you'd think He'd use something other than a sport that's really only popular in a largely Christian country anyway. Soccer would seem to be the more logical choice. MDB (talk) 13:01, 10 January 2012 (UTC)
I just want people to fucking shut up about it, Tebow or otherwise. Maybe if they'd devote their money and energy to solving real problems instead of a sport that ultimately does and means nothing in the history of the world besides permanently injuring more than a few young men, things would be a little better. -- Seth Peck (talk) 23:51, 9 January 2012 (UTC)
Erm, I have to say no to that. Sure the public obsession with things you don't care about can be annoying, but sports in particular serve as an outlet for emotions. They can give nations their pride back, push economies back up again and serve as an catalyzer for the solution of all kinds of social issues. For example, in 2006 at the opening game of the soccer world cup on the market place of my old hometown during half-time, I saw a young Turkish girl, about 14, in a headscarf (headscarf → conservative family) screaming "Germany! Germany! Germany!" as loud as her lungs (right organ?) could possibly make her. In addition she was waving around a Germany fan scarf like you normally only see it in stadiums. Such a thing wasn't seen or even thought of before. And she wasn't the only one, thousands of young immigrants were (all of a sudden) cheering for Germany. That same world cup (IIRC) many of "the Turkish" in Germany hung out flags they had made themselves that combines the German flag with the Turkish flag. Germans and Turks watched soccer together. And sure, while that further integration into a completely foreign society may would have happend anyway, it wouldn't have happend that fast and who knows what might have happend in the meantime. So, while I don't necessarily agree that sports are super-dooper important, they aren't completely irrelevant to the real problems either. --ʤɱ kant 00:45, 10 January 2012 (UTC)
There are a few saliences I want to point out here: I would argue that there's a difference between things like FIFA and the Olympics, which are closely tied to both publicly-funded/supported state/national ventures, and NFL football, which is a private venture meant to profit corporate owners. Secondly, even national/state enterprises like the Olympics are not without progressive voices who have issues with them. In short, big sport, like anything that concentrates money and power, cannot be looked at with an uncritical eye. P-Foster Talk "Go get Ace" 02:50, 10 January 2012 (UTC)

So is any of this nonsense gonna go into the Tim Tebow or selection bias articles, or do I have to break down and do it (tomorrow)? -- Seth Peck (talk) 00:33, 10 January 2012 (UTC)

Man these contrived 3:16 references are getting annoying. Alright, so the total yardage is an interesting coincidence, but then they try to make the average yardage being 31.6 yards meaningful, when it's basically just reiterating the same statistic. When you have 10 completions the average is always going to be a power of ten off the total. If each pass had been 31.6 yards, not just their average, that would be something. I'm waiting to hear that he threw a total of 948 feet, which is three 316s! These numbers keep coming up! DickTurpis (talk) 11:07, 10 January 2012 (UTC)

10 out of 21...[edit]

using the power of god, Tebow managed to make 10 out of 21 passesimg. It seems god only wants him to do somewhat good. --il'Dictator Mikal (talk) 23:43, 9 January 2012 (UTC)

I don't know American Football so is Tebow any good? Or is he an adequate player who happens to be a Conservative Christian's wet-dream? AceModerator 23:47, 9 January 2012 (UTC)
Considering I like not american sports i wouldn't know at all if thats good or bad. but he seems decent--il'Dictator Mikal (talk) 23:49, 9 January 2012 (UTC)
Throwing 10/21 is hardly indicative a good quarterback; as the statement doesn't taken into account passing yards, rushing yards, third-down conversions, fourth-downs which result in field goal attempts (as opposed to punts), or turnovers. You can be 10/21 and win by 21; you can be 10/21 and lose by 21. For comparison's sake: Elway in his final two seasons was 55% and 58% in pass completion, and his passing game was topnotch (as well as accounting for the bulk of his yardage). -- Seth Peck (talk) 00:01, 10 January 2012 (UTC)
(EC) Apparently he does charity work in the Philippines so he's probably a decent guy, albeit one who's driven by his religion rather than one who thinks it's just the right thing to do whatever. Separating motives gets a bit difficult. However you have to wonder at somebody who seems to think that every moment of his life is governed by God; I mean, out of 6 billion people on the planet and God's so concerned about you when so many people are living in abject poverty? Redchuck.gif ГенгисGum diseaseModerator 00:07, 10 January 2012 (UTC)
I would not discount this for him as a human being—must be nice to be rich enough to provide charity for people halfway around the world. Still, being a good humanitarian, or a good Christian, does not a good QB make, and vice versa. -- Seth Peck (talk) 00:15, 10 January 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, you can be 10 of 21 and win by 21...but the majority of the time, if you complete less than half your passes, not only will your team lose, but if you do it consistently---you're not even going to be a starter. Tim Tebow's completion percentage for the year was 46.5%...that would place him 34th out of 34 qualifying quarterbacks, a full 4 points below #33. His QB Rating, which takes more stats into consideration, placed him 28th out of 34. Pretty much any indication of INDIVIDUAL quarterback statistic tells the same story---Tebow stinks. Jared (talk) 00:11, 10 January 2012 (UTC)
^ This. Also, one should note the following: people will talk about Tebow's fourth-quarter/OT game as if it's the Second Coming...which was true for six of his first seven wins. However, in yesterdays game, the Broncos didn't come from behind to win...they were winning, gave up the lead, then had to reclaim it. Everyone calls the comebacks "miraculous"—but if the Broncos were the Super Bowl contenders that people want to believe they are, they need to concentrate on scoring, not just scoring when it's convenient. -- Seth Peck (talk) 00:15, 10 January 2012 (UTC)
"Look at the glory of God working through Tebow!" Pretty pathetic, get back to me when God saves people from being raped. AceModerator 00:13, 10 January 2012 (UTC)

You guys sure do love your sports. Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 00:46, 10 January 2012 (UTC)

I'm not so sure they love sports. If they did they would know that yards per completion is NEVER used as a stat. Instead, yards per attempt is used. Did you know that four times during the game the game clock read 3:16? 66.68.86.111 (talk) 05:48, 10 January 2012 (UTC)
When I was younger, I used to watch professional wrestling quite a lot, and I saw "3:16" and even more specifically "John 3:16" absolutely *everywhere*. Which is just proof that God sponsors The Undertaker's domination over Wrestlemania. X Stickman (talk) 15:45, 10 January 2012 (UTC)

A thing of beauty (aka blast from the past)[edit]

When I first read the opening paragraphs of this,img I thought I'd been transported to an alternate universe, where CP isn't run by a bunch of mindless thugs.

From Conservapedia:Administrator's Guide

Working with others

A sysops (sic) responsibility is to help users by providing guidance. If a user seems stubborn or indifferent, try shepherding or mentoring the user. The relationship between Sysop and Editor should not be adversarial. Do not compound the problem by being argumentative. You should interact peacefully and positively with users, direct newbies to the appropriate Guideline page or clause that deals with certain problems, and issue polite warnings as required. If necessary, you may impose editing restrictions, undo useless work, userfy inadequate articles, or try short blocks.

Civility

Conservapedia Administrators are expected to afford registered users the same standard of editing etiquette, decorum, and interaction you yourself, and the Conservapedia project as a whole, require and appreciate from others. You must be civil. No bullying.

I guess Kara, TK, Ken, Terry Wobblebottom and Creepy Uncle Ed all missed this memo. --PsyGremlinTala! 16:10, 10 January 2012 (UTC)

You missed the last paragraph, probably because it's written in sooper seekrit invisible ink, "Nothing in these guidelines shall be interpreted as applying to liberals, liberal sympathisers or people you vaguely suspect to be liberals." --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 16:16, 10 January 2012 (UTC)
There is a whole book to be written on the gap between CP's stated rules and actual practice. Part of that book would be a chapter on what CP was back in 2007--an actual attempt to write an encyclopedia with lively debate between the people involved in the project (and the trolls who came out of the woodwork and did really smart and interesting work to sabotage the project, from the Pacific Arboreal Octopus to quoting "My Favorite Things" in the Counterexamples to Evolution article), and how it slowly became a blog written by 5-6 stupid angry people that draws a bunch of basement-dwellers who thing that writing COCKS in giant letters on a user page is a worthwhile project. P-Foster Talk "Go get Ace" 16:22, 10 January 2012 (UTC)
I actually believe CP has a rich enough (and comical enough) history that you could write a book about it. It would almost certainly get a spot on Colbert and reach a wide audience. It would be best published after CP has finally died, though. Who wants to write it? Maybe RationalWiki could embark on its biggest project ever, collaboratively writing a book about CP, with all proceeds to the RW foundation. ONE / TALK 16:29, 10 January 2012 (UTC)
Trouble is CP will only slowly fade away and will only close when Aschlafly finally loses interest. That's not likely to be for a few years. By which time everyone will have forgotten about it. Ajkgordon (talk) 16:50, 10 January 2012 (UTC)
I think Ken's claims/attitude is representative of the other sysops, he's just far more open about it. An atheist and/or (hah, "or") liberal is inherently uncivil just by existing. That same atheist/liberal then going to CP is obviously just there to cause trouble (why else would they be there?) and therefore does not deserve to be treated civilly since they themselves have broken the CP guidelines already. Throw in CP's standard definition of "atheist/liberal = anyone who does not agree with the attending sysop" and you've got a site wide way of making the rules irrelevant without actually breaking them directly. X Stickman (talk) 17:29, 10 January 2012 (UTC)

How many buses?[edit]

Over the years, Andy has been kind enough to gloat about the number of buses he has chartered to the March for Life rally. Two buses. Three buses. This year? Seems like there's just one... I think this is going to be a tough year for Andy because he most likely won't be able to blame a low turnout on cold weather, considering the extremely mild winter, which is with absolute certainty not caused by global warming. On the other hand, I don't think he would be capable of admitting that turnout had declined. Considering the outright lies he's told about crowd attendance in the past, I wonder what he'll say this year? Occasionaluse (talk) 14:28, 10 January 2012 (UTC)

So if Obama's father was born in Kenya, Obama can't be president. But Romney's father was born in Mexico, but Romney's birth certificate doesn't matter because Romney is white. And the mother's place of birth (irrelevant anyway) is conveniently left out. Yes, I think Hurlbut is a racist. Senator Harrison (talk) 03:17, 11 January 2012 (UTC)
Actually, in fairness, he does have a consistent rationale. He has previously provided an explanation as to the definition of natural born citizen on his blog. According to, and consistent with that rationale, the critical difference between Obama and Romney is that, whilst Romney's father was born in Mexico, he was, nonetheless, an American citizen because both his parents were citizens. Obama's father, by contrast, was not an American citizen. Hurlbutt's natural born citizen theorim requires that a natural born citizen be born in the US to parents who are both citizens. As much as I dislike defending Terry (because he is often a deceitful little prick) he cannot be criticised for inconsistency in this instance. --Horace (talk) 06:22, 11 January 2012 (UTC)

What Tea Party Mocking?[edit]

Okay. Karajou is upsetimg about the White House Alice-in-Wonderland themed Halloween Party from 2009.

Okay, yeah, it's a fair point to question the political tone deafness of a honkin' big Halloween Party during a major recession. But Karajou claims it's "TEA Party Mocking", and the cited article claims nothing of the kind. Doesn't he realize that a tea party is a major scene in Alice? MDB (talk) 13:26, 11 January 2012 (UTC)

I've never seen Karajou make a single reference to a book. It's possible he doesn't read and is unaware of the existence of a tea party scene in any book, let alone in Carroll. Also, given the results in both Iowa and N.H., Obama would be a fool to think that the Tea Party is anything worth thinking about this year. P-Foster Talk "a cheetos-eating, Mountain-Dew drinking vlogger living in someone's basement." 13:32, 11 January 2012 (UTC)

Kara completely missed the train on this. Instead of attempting to claim that the Alice In Wonderland theme party somehow mocked the Tea Party Movement, he could have pointed out the large expense of hosting such an event during tough economic times; that would actually resonate with people. Instead what we have is Tea Party people trying desperately to play the victim card in a transparent way.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 17:19, 11 January 2012 (UTC)

Back on the encyclopedic content front:[edit]

Andy reinserts demonstrably wrong content about "purebred" dogs and earthquakesimg and, having made his own truth, locks it down for all eternity.img P-Foster Talk "a cheetos-eating, Mountain-Dew drinking vlogger living in someone's basement." 13:46, 11 January 2012 (UTC)

In fairness to Andy, Conservapedia was just proven right beyond all doubt because there was an earthquake. Occasionaluse (talk) 14:31, 11 January 2012 (UTC)
That is some pretty aggressive stupidity there. Andy seems to believe that purebred breeds just arrived out of nowhere, rather than being bred by humans, emphasizing various traits and eliminating undesirable alleles, to the point that a male and female of the same breed produce pure offspring. But then again, if you believe the earth is 6000 years old, ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE. I wish I were as intellectually free as Andy.Shakedangle (talk) 14:44, 11 January 2012 (UTC)
Okay, okay, Andy is not that stupid. He's not saying one earthquake proves Conservapedia right. Two, on the other hand... Occasionaluse (talk) 15:34, 11 January 2012 (UTC)
As far as dog breeds go... what's considered a "breed" of dog is really pretty arbitrary, right? Isn't it something kennel clubs and the like establish and not something with a really firm scientific basis? MDB (talk) 15:40, 11 January 2012 (UTC)
"Arbitrary" is probably the wrong word (at least to someone who grew up around breeders), but you're right. A dog is a dog (is a canis lupus familiaris). Occasionaluse (talk) 15:56, 11 January 2012 (UTC)
And in fact, there are now MORE breeds than ever before, with even more extreme "traits", since they aren't actually being used for anything but show dogs in most cases. Oh well. It's snowing today. Global warming is a hoax. And they found a new baby White Rhino this year, so rhinos are clearly no longer in danger of going extinct. Pink mowse.pngGodotDear god, fucking grow up 16:15, 11 January 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, a 'breed' of dog is just a subpopulation in which certain alleles (frequently recessive ones) have been driven to near-fixation. This is done by artificial selection by humans, who want, say, a tiny dog with short hair and big floppy ears instead of a tiny dog with long hair and big floppy ears. If you let the 'purebreds' mate outside of their 'breed', all those carefully selected alleles/traits get jumbled together. The number of purebred strains is going to fluctuate with time as breeder interest and fashion varies. It's tough to get a sense of what Andy's concept of breeds is here: does he think that all the dogs were created as purbreds during creation week, potentially making them different 'kinds', or what? He mentions "natural, pure-bred" dogs although that is an oxymoron. Maybe he's thinking of landraces, which are the local 'wild dog' stock from which purebred lines are derived. I have no idea how many different dog landraces there are, or how that number has changed over time. --Martin Arrowsmith (talk) 16:22, 11 January 2012 (UTC)
His theory seems to be that God created poodles, American pitbull terriers and Australian sheepdogs, and that Noah had cages for two of each of them. The degeneration of this Divine Doggie Register into a sea of mutts is therefore a YEC biological clock, which confirms 6,000 years. This is odd because some creationists cite dog breeding as disproving evolution (years of breeding has yet to produce a separate species of canid). It's central evidence in the microevolution/macroevolution narrative. I guess Andy forgot. --Whoover (talk) 17:25, 11 January 2012 (UTC)

Yeah they will always say that the moment they get a convenient opportunity weather-wise, and completely ignore the climate when the weather doesn't go their way. This winter has been warm in Wisconsin; warm enough that we had only one day of accumulative snowfall in December, otherwise it has been all rain. We had three days in the fifties (plus 13 in the forties) in December and three so far in January (including one where it got to 57 degrees). To give a better understanding how much warmer than normal that is, the average high is supposed to be thirty (not in the thirties, just thirty) right now. Of course this is all ignored on CP; although according to Andy's own standard of evidence when it comes to climate, this would absolutely prove global warming. However starting today we are supposed to have our first major snowfall of the year with highs afterward sliding into the low-twenties (thus below normal), which I rather expect CP to crow about on their main page as "proof" global warming is false.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 13:29, 12 January 2012 (UTC)

Whereas Ken says, "Can you answer the 15 questions that evolutionists can't answer?" Andy used to say "Deny this and lose all credibility. Global warming is a fraud/Marriage is the union between a man and a woman" or something else completely irrelevant to whatever argument he was having with the user.

So in Andyland, Frothy Santorum is nothing but a dirty liberal pro choicer[edit]

The Ever Huggable Rick Santorum, the one politician I would consider to be the ideal match of Andy's stupidity, smugness, vanity, delusions, self righteousness, hypocricy, sliminess, zealotry and catholic creationism, is apparently nothing but a black mark on Mitt Romney's record due to him being an evil abortion supporter. I know im new here, and i am well aware of the current focus on the exploits of Ken, but this seems to be worthy of a little attention. -- Judge Holden

This one really confuses me. Not only is Santorum frothingly anti-abortion, he's anti-contraceptive for fucks sake. Andy's beef with him seems to be that he endorsed Arlen Spector over Patrick Toomey in the 2004 Republican primaries for US Senate. Spector eventually flipped to the Democratic side, so Andy's wrath is partially justified, but Spector was the Republican incumbent at the time and Santorum was expected to endorse him. GW Bush also endorsed him. But really other than that, he's Andy's dream date, like Holden says.Shakedangle (talk) 17:19, 12 January 2012 (UTC)
Don't worry, the focus on Ken's exploits is not out of choice, but rather the lack of activity from most of the others. Steven Kavanagh (talk) 13:03, 12 January 2012 (UTC)
We do it as a public service - every time Ken sees his name mentoned here, he masturates furiously. And as it's the only sex he's ever going to get... Also, I see Andy and co are already turning on their own. Andy virtually jismed all over the main page when Santorum ran Romney a close 2nd in Iowa, now he's just a filthy pro-choicer. Of course, when Romney loses to Obama, it'll be "Why didn't we pick an evangelical candidate?" --PsyGremlin話しなさい 13:41, 12 January 2012 (UTC)

I almost feel bad for Andy because he has no candidate this time around. Going down the list:
  • Mitt - CP:Pro-abort/CP:XINO
  • Newt - CP:RINO
  • Jeb - Not running
  • Ron - Too libertarian
  • Perry - CP:RINO
  • Santorum - CP:Pro-abort
  • Hunstman - Maybe???
  • Bachmann - Out.
  • Rubio - Doesn't fit birther citizenship, not running
  • Palin - Out.
  • Huck - Out.
  • Cain - Out.
  • McCotter - Out.
  • Rand - Out.
  • West - Not running.
  • DeMint - Not running.
  • Cuccinelli - Not running.
  • Jindal - Not a citizen, not running.
  • Pawlenty - Out.
  • Daniels - Out.
The others aren't even worth mentioning (which says a lot because most of these aren't worth mentioning). Aside from Huntsman, who is highly unlikely to secure the nomination, who can Andy support? Either way, since he's pretty much sold everyone out, it will be fun to watch him go back on his word when Mitt is nominated. Occasionaluse (talk) 15:32, 12 January 2012 (UTC)
@UHM Yes. I'm keeping a close eye on the Romney article, as should we all. In fact, it deserves a section:
Huntsman? Are you kidding? The candidate so liberal that many Democrats support him? The guy who thinks evolution and global warming are real? No, Andy must have someone he likes, and I'm also surprised it isn't Santorum. Turpis 3:16 (talk) 15:50, 12 January 2012 (UTC)
I was basing it mostly off of the list. Hunstman is pretty much the only person who hasn't dropped out or been lampooned by Andy. Occasionaluse (talk) 15:55, 12 January 2012 (UTC)
I'm guessing Andy doesn't mention him because he doesn't even bother acknowledging his existence. In any case, he's never been a serious contender. Turpis 3:16 (talk) 15:58, 12 January 2012 (UTC)
Well, once you're a pro-abort, you're out. That leaves Newt, Paul, Perry and Hunstman. Newt and Perry are RINOs and Andy isn't a big fan of Paul, so I'd expect to see a ruling from Andy on Huntsman soon (or he'll just drop out, which is probably even more likely).

Just to check I had a little look at the history of this/last year's conservapedia news and it seems that Andy did indeed show Santorum significant praise for his rallying against abortion and evolution. However as he will not win, Andy deems him to be another filthy liberal. what i want to know is why he is still holding out for newt?Judge Holden

WhitewashWatch[edit]

So far, to my surprise, Andy has mostly steered clear of the whole article - only 6 edits in the last four years, and of those, only 2 that make any difference to the content (both made in the past month). He removed, without reason given, a fairly objective paragraph stating that Romney had been called a RINO by some. I wonder if Andy has ever called Romney a RINO - if he has, then this edit is definitely the beginning of the Great White Wash. He also removed a parodist's insertion that Romney is an "excellent conservative candidate" that can appeal to moderates, giving the reason "unjustified or unsupported edits" (some strange vandlism was cleaned up in the process, making this edit summary seem rather weird). Obviously, Andy still isn't yet comfortable with Romney being considered an "excellent conservative".... but expect that sentiment to creep back into the article once Romney wins the nomination. ONE / TALK 15:47, 12 January 2012 (UTC)

Who cares if Andy called Mitt a RINO - he's already done one better and called him "liberal-supported", meaning that when Andy finally comes around and hitches his cart to Mitt, the liberal conspiracy will have finally come around full circle to Andy himself.

It shows how extreme the Republican Party has become when Romney is called a RINO. People like Olympia Snowe and Richard Lugar are RINOs (i.e. decent politicians who are prepared to make deals across the political spectrum in the wider national interest).

Indeed. Proposals like the Interstate Highway System, the EPA, and cap and trade for emissions control are now considered firmly in "liberal" territory.

One common criticism of Christianity is that we simply say "God did it", and end the issue. This simply isn't the case. "God did it" is the beginning, it allows us a starting point to then ask "How did God do it?"

...it allows us a starting point to then ask "How did God do it?" So here's the Catch-22 (and speaking as an reformed God-squaddie, I know beyond reasonable doubt this is what they will say): if you actually ask how God did it, it's an ineffable mystery which our simple human minds are incapable (variation: unworthy) to comprehend. Ha! God wins. The Real James Brown (talk) 17:44, 12 January 2012 (UTC)
I'm only guessing here, but perhaps they mean "In what manner did God do it?" rather than "What was the method by which God did it?" When I ask my boy how he did on an exam, I am asking about his performance, not what causal capabilities produced the result.
So, if I'm right, what they mean is this: creationists try to figger out what God produced way back when. Which is not a particularly deep or fruitful investigation, but if you're a creationist, I can't see much more for one to do: catalog the critters created and try to figger out how they work. Phiwum (talk) 19:23, 12 January 2012 (UTC)
I think it really depends on the type of Creationist you encounter. Some of them are gleefully trying to achieve a strict least-miracles scenario where God only does the tiniest nudge and uses SCIENCE! to do the actual heavy lifting. See for example this CNAV post about how God created the Earth on Day One. Instead of going with "Yep, God created the Earth!", God suddenly only created elementary particles that formed into the Earth through physics. See also Andy's rambling about Jesus didn't do miracles (rising from the dead is perfectly logical, Banach-Tarski explains the multiplication of fishes and bread, quantum physics explains a lot of other crap). Why they do it is beyond me, but it is rather amusing to see them playing a variation of God of the gaps (more like "God into the gaps, and stay there!") with themselves. --Sid (talk) 00:55, 13 January 2012 (UTC)
The bigger problem is that they think the converse is as logical. Jesus performed a miracle by remote control so relativity is disproven. To them, that's science while biology and physics are scientism, aka pseudoscience. It would be amusing if it weren't so damn destructive. --Whoover (talk) 01:36, 13 January 2012 (UTC)

Addition to the drinking game[edit]

Every time AugustO says "(a tactic often used by liberals)", drink! -- Seth Peck (talk) 22:25, 13 January 2012 (UTC)

Slightly tangential but still related[edit]

Der Spiegel from the 19.9.2011 had an article about Catholicism declining in Germany and, off course, why. To make clear how wrong Ken is about this "people quiting church when it gets to liberal"-unthesis is here are some stats I found. It should be said before that, that the church Ken is refering to is Protestant and seemingly very liberal, as we all know the RCC is much more conservative and so is it's German part.

General stats between 1990 and 2010:

  • Membership: -12.5% (28.1 million to 24.6 million between 1991 and 2010 according to records)
  • Church attendence: -42.5%
  • Marriages: -58.5% (probably related to marrying inter-confessionally)
  • Baptisms: -43,1% (child going to hell? who cares!)
  • Canidates for priestship: -62,1% (I don't know if this also goes along with a decline of theology students)


There was also a poll included in the article:

  • After six years, are you satisfied with what Benedikt XIV. has done? Rather satisfied: 36% Rather unsatisfied: 32% I don't care: 21% - of all those who answered, 54% were Catholic
  • Do you think it's right that the Pope will speak to the Bundestag (German parliament)? Yes: 47% No: 45% I don't care/know: 8%
  • Should Catholic priests be continued to be forbidden from marriage? Yes: 6% No: 87% I don't care/know: 7%
  • Should the Catholic church continue to exclude women from being priests? Yes: 6% No: 88% I don't care/know: 6%
  • Do you agree with the Catholic church that practicing homosexuals are "sinners"? Yes: 9% No: 87% I don't care/know: 4%
  • Do you think the Catholic church has reacted appropriately to the reported cases of abuse by priests? Yes: 17% No: 77% I don't care/know: 6%
  • Should the Catholic church have more or less influence on society [in the future]? More: 8% Less: 50% Same: 37% I don't know/care: 5%

Considering that 54% of people polled here are Catholics and the actual percentage of Catholics is 29.7%, the real numbers would be a lot smaller. This gives us a nicely framed picture of about 3-5% of the German population while very religious still being more liberal than Ken. These questions also don't tell us anything about these peoples views on evolution.


Now follows a quick look at the German Wikipedia, or actually a table on there:

From 1990 to 2010 the Catholic church share of members to the overall population went down from 36.9% to 29.7%. The Protestans went down from 35.4% to 29.9%. So while the Protestants (EKD) lost signifacantly too, the much more conservative RCC lost more members. In these 20 years the percentage of so called "undenominationals", that means everybody that isn't member in church which are mainly atheists, agnostics, deists and several unrecognized religions, went up from 22.4% to 34.6%. From what I know the "black figure" of non-believers in the churches is quite high, as you can see above in the CC statistic of church attendence vs. membership. But also high is the number of Christians that were/are so pissed about what their priests were telling them (according to the polls, that has to be a conservative message) that they leaft church, but are still Christians.

Conclusion:

  • Ken has no clue what he is talking about
  • The exact opposite of what he "hypothesized" is true.

→ If you want to be right, look what Ken says and say the exact opposite. --ʤɱ constructivist 22:58, 13 January 2012 (UTC)

The return of Schlafly Stats[edit]

as well as missing the point by a mile:

User: (responding to Ken trolling another unrelated post with his QE blog) "I'm afraid to say that, as a UK resident, and a member of one of the official universities, I don't know anyone apart from myself who is familiar with the campaign."img

Andy: "Comments like "no one has heard about" such-and-such are not persuasive when the sample size does not even open the most logical, the most popular, and the most influential book of all time."img

Well, yes... except for the fact that this sample size is exactly the type of people QE should be targeting.

And the stats! I've attended and graduated from universities, I've taught at a university, I've given talks at universities, and more recently my students have gone to universities. It's obvious that 99% or so of university students have not opened the Bible in years, not even once, to read it with an open mind.img --PsyGremlinSpeak! 03:24, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

What will CP say now?[edit]

When Denver won over Pittsburgh last week, CP couldn't shut up about Tebow, claiming nothing short of divine intervention and miracle working in a flurry of subsequent posts on the MP Right. Well tonight Denver went to (liberal) New England and was flattened 45-10. This game was over at half time (where New England was already up 35-7); that is how terribly lopsided it was. Tebow was only 9 of 26 for 136 yards and no touchdowns, which are terrible numbers. So now the question now is, what will CP's reaction be? Toss Tebow under the bus? Ignore? Attempt to salvage the day where "liberal San Francisco and New England" won?--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 04:31, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

136 yards??? That's just 3:16 rearranged! The odds of that happening must be one in a million! All hail the Heavenly Father! «-Bfa-» 04:35, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

Brady threw 6 TD passes, 5 of them in the first half? Let's see. God must be calling everyone's attention to Matthew 6:5.

And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are. For they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, they have their reward. [KJV] Gauss (talk) 05:13, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

@Gauss, pure fucking awesome. - π 05:16, 15 January 2012 (UTC)
At one point he was in danger of going 3 for 16. But whether Tebow succeeds or fails, it doesn't matter, they will simply point to Tebow's unshakable faith and call him a winner come what may (and compared to the losers running CP, he is most certainly a winner).
I do like Andy's comment "God likely has better things to do than manage football games every weekend" -- as if managing a football game is likely to distract or tax an omniscient, omnipotent being very much. That's the problem with God -- hard to apply any kind of logic to. Tacitus (talk) 05:20, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

Little known fact; Tebow converted to Islam just before the game. Stile4aly (talk) 05:45, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

Don't worry - Andy has the answer:img "God has given us one miracle with Tebow, so it's perfectly fine for Him to throw Tebow under the bus now, because you should all be reading the Bible by now." --PsyGremlinPrata! 06:00, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

So according to Andy, God only has the time and energy for football on some of the weekends but not others? What pressing issue did God has this Saturday that he couldn't get his message across? I didn't see any divine hand in anything else that happened in the world this week. Was God too tired from last week's victory? Is there some limitation on his time, his power? Or could it, and just hear me out here, could it be the following: Denver managed to win at home against a severely banged up Pittsburgh with an immobile quarterback due to injury, and thus allowing Denver to take advantage of Pittsburgh's weaknesses. Then this week they had to travel to New England against a fully rested, even higher caliber team with a high powered offense behind an elite quarterback at 100%, who also had something to prove after hearing nothing but Tebow-mania for the last 7 days in the media, and suddenly Denver found themselves complete outmatched and thus soundly defated? It's almost well.. almost as it there was no God around, and instead the outcome of the games depended entirely on the relative strengths, weaknesses, and preparation of each of the teams. I mean, imagine that! What are the chances!!? --BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 16:19, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

Out of Curiosity[edit]

Has Tebow ever publicly made a partisan political statement? I know he did a pro-life ad for the Super Bowl, but, strictly speaking, that's not partisan. It would be amusing to see Andy's reaction if Tebow publicly took the stance of some young evangelicals, that he agrees with the Rebublicans on things like abortion and gay rights, but he likes the Democrats for their environmental stances and concern for the poor.

There's no "if" about it. The Broncos aren't going to win the Super Bowl. Before their victory yesterday Vegas was giving them 120 to 1. It's probably significantly better now, maybe 30 to 1, but still, they just aren't as good a team as the best in the league. The only reason they made the playoffs is because they won their division, which they share with 3 other mediocre teams, worst of which they only beat by a single game, I believe. Yesterday's win was their first against a genuinely good team. I'd be shocked if they managed to repeat such an upset 3 more times. DickTurpis (talk) 15:21, 9 January 2012 (UTC)

I have a feeling that Andy will stoop to citing the line on the game. "Liberals predicted that the Broncos would lose by 30 points, but the Tebow smashed those expectations losing by a mere 21 points." Something like that. Then he'll ironically gloat about how gracious and humble Tebow was during the loss. Occasionaluse (talk) 16:03, 9 January 2012 (UTC)

Lose the Super Bowl? They won't even make it that far. They're up against the New England Patriots (blue state, Democrats) who trounced them in their last match-up, in an away game. Tebow will buckle. An anti-Conservapedia prediction: "Will a Patriots win mean a shoe-in for Elizabeth Warren to replace Scott Brown?" No, it won't--she'll win on her own merits because she's awesome and Brown's a douchebag. -- Seth Peck (talk) 16:48, 9 January 2012 (UTC)
Andy's escape clause on this is that Aaron Rogers, the quarterback for the favored to win Superbowl Green Bay Packers, is also an evangelical Christian. If the Broncos are eliminated and Green Bay later wins; he'll just make that claim that Conservatives and Christians won the Superbowl and how atheists haven't (even though we will never actually know how many secular people have been on championship football teams over the years).--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 17:33, 9 January 2012 (UTC)

The Packers are not "publicly owned" in the socialist sense of the term, AFAIK. The state doesn't own them. They are owned by their shareholders, who bought the stock when it was sold to the public. They are no more "publicly owned" than is Microsoft or US Steel. P-Foster Talk "Go get Ace" 22:45, 9 January 2012 (UTC)
Actually this is a good time to remind Americans. You probably do own Microsoft, and perhaps US Steel. Most pension funds invest heavily in big dinosaurs like these two, because they're seen as stable. Your pension fund probably has people whose job is to persuade you that they behave ethically e.g. not investing in companies that are going to start a war to make a few bucks. Putting pressure on these people can translate into pressure on the boards of these huge corporations to do what you want. The general belief that the board are required to "maximise profits" is false. A public corporation, like any corporation, serves its shareholders. If it seeks profit at any cost that's because the shareholders demanded it. Many "Packers" investors probably feel a Superbowl win would be better than a dividend. 82.69.171.94 (talk) 10:18, 10 January 2012 (UTC)

EC 1. I defy you to find the words "dirty foreigner" on Conservapedia. Their nativistic streak is strong, but it's not the only way they talk about the rest of the world. 2. The Philippines have a pretty strong Christian tradition as well as a long history of connection to the US, what with them being a former colony and all. 3. Geographic location is not the only determining factor of nationality to people who care about such things. Where was Obama born? Where was McCain born?

Oh, I'm sorry, I should have said something like, "Both Tim Tebow and Lou Diamond Phillips were born in the Phillipines, a country with high Christian moral values. Between the two of them, Tebow is a virgin and Phillips engaged in an 'alternative lifestyle' that resulted in him losing his first wife to lesbianism, as well as having a failed second marriage with a Penthouse model. You don't hear much of Phillips anymore; clearly his lack of recent successes is a result of him engaging in liberal activities and cavorting with loose women. Conversely, Tebow is enjoying much success of late due to his conservative values. Perhaps if Phillips had followed the moral upbringings of his Scottish/Irish heritage of his father (and not that of his father's Cherokee descent, or his mother's Asian descent), he would not have suffered such a horrible divorce and a decline in success so early in his life." Better? -- Seth Peck (talk) 17:25, 9 January 2012 (UTC)

I've never heard of "Lou Diamond Phillips," but whatever. And I when I think of Asia/Pacific countries with really strict laws re: corporal punishment, I think of Singapore more than the Philippines, which does not have legal corporal punishment, but maybe that's just me.

Other than JPatt, I haven't seen any of the sysops ever state anything overtly racist, at least not to my knowledge. I don't know each of the rest's views on the subject of race, but they don't appear racist as far as I can tell.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 19:41, 9 January 2012 (UTC)
Their hands are probably pretty clean as far as straight-up-N-bomb-dropping-cross-burning-hood-wearing racism is concerned, or at least they're smart enough to keep everything on the up-and-up in polite company. Ed has made sweeping comments about topics like African-Americans and welfare, but hey, so has Newt Gingrich. All that said, racism is a slippery, pernicious and systematic thing, and they are all invested in that system, with all of its slipperiness and pernisciousness.

Andy endorses the obesity campaign and hits out against Mrs Obama, but is perfectly happy to endorse Chris Christie despite being the size of a whale. Either Karajou or Ed Poor just created that article suggesting that the digital divide is false and black people choose not to buy computers.

Andy hats Romney[edit]

Beatrice Cthulhu hat - that's how much he hats Romney.

We need to keep track of his Romney bashing, so we can monitor the abrupt about turn when Mitt wins the nomination. From: United States Presidential Race - Endorsements for Republicans 2012

Useless Value (max. 10) Endorser Endorsement Why it is useless
10 Iowa Des Moines Register Mitt Romney The newspaper supported same-sex marriage
9 Jon Huntsman Mitt Romney Many wondered why this ambassador for the Obama Administration was running for the Republican nomination.

--PsyGremlin 講話 05:23, 16 January 2012 (UTC)

Maybe, but given Andy's history of never dropping even the most bugfuck insane views (relativity, the bible project, black holes etc) he will most likely state that Mitt cheated, lied, blackmailed the "Real True Conservatives" out of the race (apart from the known commie Rick Santorum who is just as bad), or any number of such ideas to win the nomination, and I also think he will also twist his election defeat (i'm assuming Mitt will be defeated) into another glorious victory for "Real True Conservatives", so not only can he keep whining about Romney, but can claim an Obama victory is a personal victory for him and conservapedia. Judge HoldenThe Judge Smiles 06:20, 16 January 2012 (UTC)

Look how well thats working. Someone wanna tell me how well the "Christian Conservatives" are doing against first place Romney?--Thunderstruck (talk) 14:05, 16 January 2012 (UTC)
I would hazard a guess that Andy holds a bitter, bitter resentment towards Romney, who arguably rivals Obama in representing everything Andy despises and fears. For one he is perceived by many as a "moderate" republican, he does not care about social issues unless they get him points and he has shown willingness to go "liberal" when it benefits him, and of course he is a different flavor of Christianity, which all synthesizes to create a candidate Andy finds easy to hate.
However, you may ask what truly separates him from Gingrich in this regard? In my opinion Gingrich out of all the candidates personifies Andy's self righteous and hypocritical wrath against the demonic democrats by his leading the campaign to impeach Clinton and his leading the republicans to seize the house of representatives, and as shown by Andy's instant abandonment of those that "fail him" he sees the prosecution of the holy war against liburals as the ultimate ideal, and those who fail to do so sufficiently are worthless to him, such as poor sweet Santorum who is now just another liberal.
As seen multiple times, Andy's unrivaled record of failure, humiliation, and irrelevance has imbued in him a bitterness and resentment towards those he views as either "despicable alien" or "faithless traitor" on a near personal level (as the self appointed avatar of holy conservatism) especially when they attain power and prestige that he may never attain, be it the presidency or the support of most republicans in the nomination.
Right now he is likely hoping that Romney's probable failure will result in a "revolution" within the republicans which places a "Real True Christian Conservative" in charge, which will then result in them sweeping into power, making him Attorney General, and replacing the constitution with Conservapedia. Judge HoldenThe Judge Smiles 14:47, 16 January 2012 (UTC)
Don't forget that Andy is holding out for some conservative wet dream, where they get to the convention and all True Conservatives go "WTF?!", lynch Romney and vote Jeb Bush in as their new Messiah. --PsyGremlin話しなさい 14:56, 16 January 2012 (UTC)

Football is over for Andy[edit]

Andy's backup evangelical Christian candidate to hang his hopes on, Aaron Rogers, and the Green Bay Packers, just got upset by the New York Giants 37-20. So now we have liberal New York City versus liberal San Francisco for the NFC Championship, and liberal Baltimore versus liberal New England for the AFC Championship (I am using liberal as Andy would have it be used). The question is what will Andy and CP say now? Personally I expect no mention of football from this point on, as far as this season is concerned on CP's mainpage. I do expect he will dismiss football as just a game that God doesn't care about, so it (now) doesn't matter who wins as a response to any user who brings up these inconvenient facts in the comments section (with a possible burning and banishment).--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 00:55, 16 January 2012 (UTC)

It would appear that he is not mentioning these facts, but instead standing by his mancrush to say that Tebow "prevented total disaster" in failing to win.img So in other words just another case of denial of reality, denial of his own words and denial of having ever made a mistake, in favour of clinging to a near mastabatory obsession. However I agree that he will be quick to put this out of sight as soon as he is able to, probably in favour of the Republican leadership speculation Judge HoldenThe Judge Smiles 02:11, 16 January 2012 (UTC)
Poor God. Back in the old days he was smiting the shit out of entire cities and slaughtering thousands of people with a magic box of death.

I don't care how strong your ego is, this must sting it. X Stickman (talk) 02:22, 16 January 2012 (UTC)
"Maybe the league needs to listen to Tebow more than it does". Listen to him say what? "I thank Jesus"? Half the football players the sideline reporters interview after a victory give that same line. Tebow isn't saying anything new, he just takes it to another step (and his fanatical fans that it three steps past that). Tebow in that regard isn't any different than Reggie White, an outspoken Christian and minister. So what exactly is Tebow saying that is new or hasn't be repeated ad nauseam? --BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 08:41, 16 January 2012 (UTC)

Probably legit. If the odd appearance isn't due to questionable photography, it's a pretty decent photoshopping, with matching compression artifacts, lighting directions, and such.

The phrase "the injustices of slavery" doesn't even begin to account for the violence that was the Atlantic slave trade;talking about the "descendants" of slaves makes it harder to consider the millions and millions of "descendants" who would presumably been born in Africa if their ancestors had not been sent to the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean when it was deemed they were too sick to bother feeding/worked to death and/or killed for resisting slavery in the New World, etc. Moreover, the idea that Africans are in a rough spot today has more than a little to do with centuries of trans-Atlantic slave trading and European colonialism, so to argue that the descendants of slaves are doing better than continental Africans because of their immersion in a non-African environment is problematic. P-Foster Talk "a cheetos-eating, Mountain-Dew drinking vlogger living in someone's basement." 16:48, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

The assertion is part of the pledge from The Family Leader (we have no article about this) that was signed by both Creepy and Frothy. The exact clause of the pledge was:

Slavery had a disastrous impact on African-American families, yet sadly a child born into slavery in 1860 was more likely to be raised by his mother and father in a two-parent household than was an African-American baby born after the election of the USA’s first African-American President.

However the edit by TonyPark states "scholars and commentators". I had to dive a little, but found this which casts some light on the actual "study" that made the assertion, and includes some links to citations and competing opinions. Of note here (and to correct some perceptions made by other commentors), the statement appears to (a) talk about African Americans and not Africans (some of whom are not black), (b) talk only about the perceived benefits of living in a two-parent household and nothing to do with rights, freedoms, equality or economic status of slaves, and (c) try to emotionally associate all of the problems an African American child might have in today's United States with the "failures" of Barack Obama. -- Seth Peck (talk) 16:46, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

While I don't think anyone could ever "test" such a statement in the real world, it's not an uncommon view in the South at all. While they end up ultimately having to agree that "slavery was bad" (i hear that in my head the way I hear' drugs are bad' from south park. a rote statement drilled into heads), they see it as a sorta "good" bad. You will very often hear "if you are so made about slavery, go live in Africa where they don't have schools or tvs". etc. Quite often it's said in response to questions about reparations. Pink mowse.pngGodotDear god, fucking grow up 16:50, 15 January 2012 (UTC)
I am the one behind TonyPark, and I added that phrase because it is a very commonly used pro-slavery canard, and is a view that is still commonly held among the wingnut crowd. OBVIOUSLY it's a load of horseshit, Africa without the slave trade would have used its natural resources to become an economic powerhouse by now. Still, I had no idea that it was okay to use anti-gay rhetoric to make CP look bad, but not racial. Are there any other rules for trolling I should know about? I also made an account called TerryDiedAndILoled, and I told Andy that TK was fucking with him and that everyone was laughing. Was that also going over the line?

BTW, I don't care if someone at CP sees this, I'm on a train right now moving to another state. New IP=New Account soon!Tesformes (talk) 17:45, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

I have to agree with TonyPark in that he was only repeating the type of nonsense that the type of conservatives who frequent CP have said in the past, not necessarily as an all out defense of slavery but certainly as a mitigating factor, usually as the result of their belief that black people should not still be 'wallowing in the past injustices' they suffered for the majority of the existence of the USA. The swift removal by AS does reflect the fact that it is okay to be seen as anti-gay, anti-Muslim, anti-atheist, and even anti-woman on CP, but even a whiff of racism is squashed immediately, even if it reflects the type of extremist views that are common amongst his ilk.Tacitus (talk) 21:19, 15 January 2012 (UTC)
