Questionable link[edit]

So I was reading the external links, and found one that seems really dodgy. Footnote 3 leads to a citation of an article called "Our Race is Our Nation: The Universality of Anti-Semitism". With a name like that, and the fact that it claims such things as that Hitler's misdeeds were exaggerated, and the general tone of the article being drastically different from other reviews of historical antisemitism (it seems to imply that the Jews brought it on themselves) I have some reason to believe it's in fact a Neo-Nazi website. Can somebody else confirm or deny this? I don't want the authorities thinking I'm a Nazi and investigating me because I clicked on one of our links. --User:Brendan Rizzo, 2014-03-05, 12:02 UCT

Top Quote removed[edit]

The former Top Quote of this page was one that Voltaire himself did not say. Therefor I removed it. See for instance .

Restored. It's obvious humour and the cite notes this - David Gerard (talk) 10:16, 10 June 2015 (UTC)

The fuck was that word again?[edit]

I'm getting frustrated because I can't remember it. It's when a woman thinks of something but a male, either through his own doing or society's, takes credit for it. Goddamit what the fuck was it? It was like bro-theft or something? Cultural broprobiation? I honestly have it on the tip of my tongue. Parogar (talk) 05:55, 11 March 2015 (UTC)

Voltaire's Anti-semitism is debatable.[edit]

"Bertram Schwarzbach's far more detailed studies of Voltaire's dealings with Jewish people throughout his life concluded that he was anti-biblical, not anti-semitic. His remarks on the Jews and their "superstitions" were essentially no different from his remarks on Christians." --WP article on V. Ariel31459 (talk) 18:02, 22 May 2019 (UTC)
