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: $6000Goal: $6000

What THEY don't want

Sheeple wakers
So you refuse to get vaccinated, and will never allow vaccines in the system of the children you love and care for so much … Hmmm, sorry but you have little choice in the matter. [....] Look … up in the sky … it’s a bird … it’s a plane … no … it’s a delivery system for vaccines that you are not even aware of, never agreed to, and probably never would consent to, but your consent is not sought and was never considered!
—Roger Landry, a writer for The Liberty Beacon[1]

The Liberty Beacon (TLB) is a fringe online news source that promotes vaccine hysteria,[1][2] chemtrail conspiracy theories,[1][3] the FEMA concentration camps conspiracy theory,[4] hysterical GMO woo[5] and other far-right survivalist bullshit. Unsurprisingly, they embrace and promote all the wacky conspiracy theories associated with the worst of Trumpism.

The Liberty Beacon's narrative appears to be that the Obama administration (and probably the Bush administration) are/were (1) bumbling idiots, controlled by their corporate masterminds, who seek to control the government for their own purposes, and/or (2) authoritarian masterminds, who seek to use the government to control the sheeple[6] for their own purposes. Though they claim to "produce media content" their website consists mostly of articles copied from other webshites.[7]

Sane people routinely see the Liberty Beacon and think that it must be a parody. It appears, however, to be depressingly sincere.
