Academic Freedom[edit]

I think that the term "academic freedom" fits the description of dog whistle politics. This term is used by creationists and ID proponents for bills that would allow the introduction of materials that question legitimate science (usually evolution, but also can be used to attack climate science or even U.S. history). The bills are introduced under the noble facade of fairness and open-mindedness, but are really used as back doors for teachers to posit religious "theories" as alternatives to established scientific ones.— Unsigned, by: / talk / contribs

The antisemitic dog whistle section[edit]

Well first of all the claim that anti-Zionism is a thinly veiled front for antisemitism in most cases was in the article for a long time, without even a hint of the "dubious" tag. Furthermore, the claim of an "Israel Lobby" is not exclusive to German language sources. I was trying to insert the source when some edit warrior unproductively blocked the page.

Is it just me, or have they just completely stopped caring about using this? Donald Trump supports having a nation-wide registry for Muslims and mosques. I mean, that's literally Hitler. You can't even pretend someone's exaggerating with a Hitler comparison. Donald Trump just abused Godwin's Law so hard, I have to understand why some think he's just a troll. --PosthumanHeresy (talk) 16:56, 23 November 2015 (UTC)

If he is a troll or not, the people who support him seem pretty honest and invested. I almost hope he wins the nomination, or runs independently, in order to show how much of the country would literally elect a Hitler like figure after spending a World War defeating those ideas. -EmeraldCityWanderer (talk) 17:11, 23 November 2015 (UTC)
Even The Don has felt obliged to use the whistle in his slogan "Make America White Great Again!" Bongolian (talk) 18:49, 1 May 2016 (UTC)

What about leftist dog whistle politics[edit]

This article seems slanted towards right-wing dog whistle politics. But what about leftist dog whistle politics? I'm talking about normalizing terrorist Satanic cults masquerading as religions and immoral sexual practices under the guise of TOLERANCE. Seems to me any site calling itself rational would include that under dog-whistle politics. Otherwise, call this site what it really is: BatShitCrazySJWWiki. (talk) 18:39, 1 May 2016 (UTC)

"But I thought this was supposed to be RATIONALWiki!" Drink!--JorisEnter (talk) 18:43, 1 May 2016 (UTC)

Uh, what??? Do you mean to say the people who put this site together did so while drunk? No surprise there. (talk) 18:47, 1 May 2016 (UTC)
