Metapedia does not have content unrelated to their objective or outright contradicting such[edit]

From what I see, I could not find articles on aliens/extraterrestrial life, periodic table, Universal Declaration of Human Rights, exoplanets, Wolfenstein (what?), African-American astronauts, African-American inventors, African-American actors, the Tuskegee Airmen and the Fall of Singapore (Japanese forces defeating the Brits with less men).

They don't even have an article on "Science Fiction"! They only seem to be focusing on proving that the Aryan race is superior to everyone else on Earth, despite evidence to the contrary around the world.

To me, they seem to be backwards when thinking about future technologies and the rest of science. CommanderOzEvolved (talk) 14:14, 26 August 2018 (UTC)

I wouldn't waste much time with it, since that far-right wiki is pretty much dead. Metapedia only has one active sysop, Upplysning (a Swedish Holocaust denier crank). They used to have a forum, Nordisk, but the owner of Metapedia closed it down last year because of inactivity. With some luck, Metapedia will also end up being closed; Metapedia's clone Rightpedia is almost inactive.Octo (talk) 15:16, 26 August 2018 (UTC)

I won't bother trying to clean up the article and have collapsed this.Tobias (talk) 18:04, 6 May 2019 (UTC)

Misinformation by Coombs[edit]

There was a dispute between admins on Metapedia in 2013 and 2014 about the direction of the website and its content. One admin ("Atlantid") left after arguing Metapedia should abandon white nationalism, racialism and Holocaust denial for right-wing populism, others however argued Metapedia should turn more anti-Semitic and become openly neo-Nazi. This led to several Metapedia admins ("Mikemikev", "Hu1" and "Wyatt Man") creating Rightpedia, a more extreme version of Metapedia. Both moderate and extreme factions ended up being banned/expelled from Metapedia and the current admin "Upplysning" maintains a status-quo of the old Metapedia content: still promoting white nationalism and Holocaust denial, albeit in a less crude way than Rightpedia does. Since 2015, Rightpedia and Metapedia have written articles attacking each other.[10][11] However, Metapedia criticized Rightpedia for legitimate reasons, including promoting the moon hoax and Chemtrails conspiracy theories[12][13] and claiming that Blacks are more closely related to apes than to other humans.[14]

This seems like nonsense probably added by a Michael Coombs sock. Coombs was the troll who caused various admins to leave the wiki in 2013-2014.159.65.21.52 (talk) 03:01, 7 May 2021 (UTC)
