"Yes, that's what I mean. Only a condescending leftist would name a wiki 'rational' wiki as if that everything they write on it is rational and anyone who disagrees with their beliefs isn't true." "But I thought this was supposed to be RATIONALWiki!" Drink! Reverend Black Percy (talk) 18:36, 26 September 2016 (UTC)
Why do you even waste your time with reading shit like that? I am not the Ombud's man 19:44, 26 September 2016 (UTC)
Isn't Reddit already the altright shitty version of Reddit? ikanreed You probably didn't deserve that 19:53, 26 September 2016 (UTC)
CGP Grey likes Reddit. And he is not alt-right. I am not the Ombud's man 19:59, 26 September 2016 (UTC)
Lol dude, you can like Reddit without being an Alt-Righter. Guess why the Alt-Right started their own +++nordic cross conspiracy+++ version of Reddit? Reverend Black Percy (talk) 00:10, 27 September 2016 (UTC)

"Patriotic correctness"[edit]

The right has its own version of political correctness. It’s just as stifling. αδελφός ΓυζζγςατΡοτατο (talk/stalk) 21:08, 8 December 2016 (UTC)

Rename to "patriotic correctness"?[edit]

Pros:

  • PC is more common than CC.
  • More clearly links "patriotic" rhetoric to discourse-stifling (IMO this is more important)

Cons:

  • Temporary loss of Google rank, viewership.
  • Less clearly links CC/PC to conservative ideology

Removed these texts[edit]

In April 2011, J. Crew published an [[advertising|ad]] featuring the company's president, Jenna Lyons, painting her son's toenails pink, with the caption, "Saturday with Jenna — Lucky for me, I ended up with a boy whose favorite color is pink. Toenail painting is way more fun in neon." [[Fox News]] quickly assembled a few conservative "[[Experts for hire|experts]]" who denounced the ad as "blatant [[propaganda]] celebrating [[transgender]]ed children."<ref>[http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/04/12/fox-news-jcrew-jenna-lyons-_n_848152.html]</ref> The [[Media Research Center]] also called the ad "propaganda pushing the celebration of gender-confused boys wanting to dress and act like girls."<ref>[http://conwebwatch.tripod.com/stories/2011/mrcchaz.html The MRC's Transgender Freakout]</ref> (In this case, conservative correctness dictated that anything besides [[gender]]/[[sexual orientation]] [[heteronormativity]] shouldn't be shown in public. And not only that, pink used to be a [[EP#The media discovers evo psych|very ''masculine'' color]].)

Example is a little too in-depth IMO. Herr FüzzyCätPötätö (talk/stalk) 17:46, 21 December 2016 (UTC)

Socialized costs predate the concept of socialism: Adam Smith, the father of capitalism, talks in The Wealth of Nations (Book V, Chapter I, Part III, Articles 2d-3d) about the benefits of public schooling. This modern push for all people to carry the totality of their own weight without any form of public assistance—even going so far as to argue for the privatization of roads—is exactly that: modern, and pretty detached from "classical" notions of liberalism. Adam Smith also supported the redistribution of wealth and a form of class warfare against what he called the "Rentier Class". A term which, at the time, referred to the aristocracy, but which he foresaw as the robber barons. Libertarians love Adam Smith only because they don't read him.

Traditional Marriage[edit]

What exactly constitutes 'Traditional Marriage (TM)'? Most countries had their own versions, and probably many 'marriages' in historical times were little more than 'shall we merge our property and share a bed?', 'OK' Anna Livia (talk) 10:36, 13 August 2017 (UTC)
