Metapedia appears to be run by Mossad and it's as if they blackmailed the people behind it.
—Rightpedia admin A Wyatt Man, did he forget his medication?[1]

Rightpedia (en.rightpedia.info) is a neo-Nazi wiki created by ex-Metapedia sysops. The difference between Metapedia and Rightpedia is negligible, since both deny the Holocaust, promote white nationalism and support racialist pseudoscience. However, while Rightpedia is open about its racism (unlike Metapedia that attempts to thinly-veil this), as well as the fact it adopts the alt-right's internet trolling culture, including support for the flat earth conspiracy theory, many people are confused as whether Rightpedia is sincere, or a parody, even some Stormfront users are apparently confused.[2]

History[edit]

Rightpedia was created sometime in 2015 by ex-Metapedia sysops Hu1 and A Wyatt Man who were banned from Metapedia for inserting "crackpottery" and making "blatantly unrealistic claims"[3] such as Moon landing hoax theories[4]. They were banned after some complaints were made on the Nordisk web community portal (now offline) in November 2014 where Metapedia owner, Anders Lagerström posted (as Daniel F).[5] Rightpedia managed to recruit the infamous neo-Nazi troll Mikemikev to administrate their wiki, who was earlier banned from Metapedia for starting a flame war.

Hosting issues[edit]

Rightpedia was initially hosted by Orain, which refused to take it down due to their Terms of Service which supports freedom of speech.[6] However, Orain was closed down in September 2015 due to being hacked,[7][8] and Rightpedia moved to MW Zip before being deleted from there as well.[9] After that, they purchased hosting from GoDaddy.[10]

Libel[edit]

Rightpedia admin Mikemikev has said Rightpedia's aim is to create "hit pieces" on its political opponents (such as liberals) and Jewish people.

When hosted by Orain several of these libellous articles were removed for violating Orain's Terms of Service.[11]
