29Jason KenneyWikipedia (see draft) is the current right-wing populist premier of Alberta, and leader of the United Conservative Party, which formed from a merger before the most recent election. He has been unpopular recently under the COVID-19 pandemic, part of this being that he cut doctor's salaries. His campaign involved a conspiracy theory against Canadian environmental organisations, claiming that they received money from the US in order to prevent Canadian oil from being exported to any country other than the US. He has also been a federal cabinet minister for the Conservative Party. He also has a history of homophobia.

14TVP InfoWikipedia is a Polish public news channel run by a state-owned broadcaster. While it isn’t suprising that a populist government is using public media for political purposes, TVP Info is on a whole new level of propaganda. Almost entirety of the air time is spent on either showing how successful the government is (It isn’t.) or on attacking its’ opponents with most absurd accusations and buzzwords, aswell as promoting homophobia (they even made an entire schlockumentary about how „LGBT ideology” is trying to „sexualize children”, while comparing the rise of LGBT rights movement in Poland to an „invasion”), fear of refugees, euroscepticism, religious fundamentalism, Antifa-baiting, George Soros conspiracy theories and demonizing abortion (the last one intensified during the pro-choice protests of late 2020). The channel’s headlines were nicknamed by Poles as „headlines of terror” due to their extremely agressive and fear-mongering contents („Left-wing fascism is destroying Poland”, „Atheists want to take away 500+ (a state welfare program) from Poles”, „LGBT ideology is destroying the family”, „Opposition wants anarchy, because it lost the elections” - these are only few out of hundreds of examples). I’m reminding once again that this is a public station that is funded from people’s taxes. TVP Info’s bullshit definitely influenced the outcome of elections in 2019 and 2020 in favor of the ruling party aswell as general public discourse in Poland and there’s no sign that they’re planning to stop. Even worse, it was recently announced that a new English-language side channel is going to appear in 2021, so the language barrier will no longer protect you.

19Cynical Theories,Wikipedia a book produced in August 2020 by two of the perpetrators of the Grievance studies hoaxWikipedia. Cynical Theories, which has become a bestseller, criticizes a boogeyman in the form of "Woke" or "Social Justice" ideology, asserting that all of its various strands - fourth-wave feminism, queer theory, critical race theory, postcolonial theory, intersectionality - are steeped in and derive from 1960s postmodernist philosophy, which they see as opposed to liberalism itself. The book's blurb presents what appear to be straw-man distortions of numerous social justice talking points (e.g. "biological sex doesn't exist", "all white people are racist" etc.) This review outlines how the authors have misrepresented the words of influential writers such as Kristie Dotson and incorrectly characterized certain philosophers as postmodernists who "cannot by any scholarly standard be put into that bucket".

16TheWorldMustKnowCreate draft TheWorldMustKnow, a website run by Jason, the creator of the new "free speech" social media service "WIMKIN" based on the same name.

45Sex worker-exclusionary radical feminismEdit draft - currently a small section in Trans-exclusionary radical feminism, but could be an article in its own right instead, as it's a different topic (covering anti-sex-worker, anti-porn attitudes and the idea that all sex workers are both victims and enablers of the patriarchy).

Because of his celebrity status at the time as well as the cover up surrounding his death, it is believed that Tillman was murdered by the military due to his opposition to the wars and the military industrial complex.

10Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinneyWikipedia are former journalists turned filmmakers. The couple calls themselves documentary filmmakers and investigative journalists, however, their brand of “journalism” is more aligned with right-wing propaganda than any actual form of investigation or truth. The couple is highly in denial of anthropogenic global warming and are staunchly in favor of the fossil fuel industry, which they demonstrate clearly in their "documentaries". For example, their most notorious piece, FrackNation,Wikipedia is a film that is staunchly in favor of hydraulic fracturing despite the proven disastrous effects that fracking has done to the environment. Because of this they've essentially established themselves as a mouthpiece for climate change deniers, and to no surprise, they are listed as "experts" by the Heartland Institute.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ann_McElhinney_and_Phelim_McAleer

156Tila Tequila,Wikipedia not to be confused with actual tequila, is a model who came under extreme fire for saying some Nazi esque things. Because of this, she was banned from "Celebrity Big Brother" (although, if I'm honest, no one really wants to be in Big Brother). Fun fact: she's both LGBT and Asian, so her sympathy with white nationalists is kinda ironic. Oh, and she's a Flat Earther. (Note: a page on her was previously deleted: RationalWiki:Articles for deletion/Tila Tequila.)

4Jeanne Calment,Wikipedia generally considered the oldest person who ever lived and proof of the health-giving effects of cigarettes and being French. However there are claims that her longevity was faked and she was replaced by her daughter in the 1930s. It's amusing to see how she's used in health debates, but the debate over her age is more interesting.

"Ghost" has also had numerous podcasts since 2008, usually spanning hundreds of episodes, each having a runtime of around two hours [39] [40] [41] [42]. Basically, "Ghost" is a wingnut, and a pretty nutty one at that [43]. Ghost has even gone on quite a few ableist rants [44] [45] [46], and went as far to tell fans of anime to commit suicide [47].

143The ongoing Australian bushfire crisisWikipedia and the conspiracy theories that have been spreading like wildfire in response to it. There are claims that environmentalists deliberately started the fires to build High Speed Rail lines, that it's part of the Agenda 21 conspiracy to kill everybody, that 200 people were arrested for arson that on further inspection is only 24 and with no evidence they had any political motive for doing so, and a bunch of other wacky theories.

76Four-day weekWikipedia: there are a lot of articles recently claiming that a four day week in the workplace greatly increases productivity, as well as benefiting workers and the environment.[53][54] However, evidence is limited to a few, frequently-cited studies whose methodology is unclear, and a lot of claims seem exaggerated. There have been a few studies that seemed to find benefits (including fewer pointless meetings, less absenteeism) but the Hawthorne effect may be involved, durations were short, and it's hard to double blind these things.[55][56] In some cases cited (e.g. Utah cited on Wikipedia) workers still did the same number of hours, just over fewer but longer days, while others suggest workers doing fewer hours can accomplish more. There have been a lot of claims about political parties planning to make it mandatory. Labour at the 2019 UK general election allegedly planned it, but in fact their research found that a hard cap on hours wouldn't work.[57] Finland was reported to have been planning a four day week, possibly even with 6 hour days, but this turned out to be fake news.[58] So is there anything to it, what are the pros and cons, and is it all wishful thinking?
